Amy Duggar to star in TV special revealing who molested her as a child and which family member choked her

Published

on

Josh Duggar admittedly molested four of his sisters and a babysitter while growing up. But now it seems another Duggar had a difficult and abusive history as well.

According to a Fox News interview, Amy Duggar, Josh’s cousin, and her new husband Dillon King are in “Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars.” The couple admits that Amy needed help coming “to terms with an abusive incident involving a family member.”

The Inquisitr reported the issue wondering if Josh could have been the source of the molestation. According to the Fox interview, Amy didn’t want to reveal who the source of the crime was before the airing of the show.

According to a teaser that appeared in a commercial for the show, a male family member allegedly picked Amy up by her throat and lifted her toward the ceiling.

“I’m grateful I had the opportunity,” Amy told Fox. “I wished I could have done it behind closed doors… It’s not that I regret saying his name… Well, I regret talking about it on camera, but it’s something that just literally blew out of my mouth and the doctors could tell that I was bothered by something.”

It’s unclear why Amy was forced into a situation where her only option was to attend a public marriage counseling

“The question was, ‘Who hurt you when you were a little girl? Who was someone that first brought you pain? And this person — I tried to hide it, I did. But the doctors were like, ‘No, there’s something there. There’s something bothering you,’” she said.

“And before I had the chance to really think about it and clear my mind, [the name] came out in therapy. And I forgave this person. This person is having a hard time forgiving me for mentioning it on camera. But in the moment, I literally forgot cameras were even there.”

Published

on

CNN contributor Rick Santorum ran into some fierce resistance on Sunday morning when he attempted to defend the explicit racism in Donald Trump's tweets at Democratic lawmakers -- with the only other conservative on the panel blowing up on him.

Speaking with fill-in host Dana Bash, the former GOP Senator from Pennsylvania was right away on the defensive when asked about the president's tweets and the resulting "send her back" chant at a rally in North Carolina.

"He says things to bring attention to these issues and I know it's hair on fire time for everyone on the left," Santorum offered in Trump's defense, which brought a sharp comeback from fellow conservative CNN commentator S.E. Cupp.

Trump busted for doubling down on his racist rants before Mueller speaks: ‘He’s scared’

Published

on

Appearing on CNN's "New Day," a former adviser to Bill Clinton said that he expects ex-special counsel Robert Mueller to make a some blunt statements about President Donald Trump in his upcoming appearance before a Congressional committee that will cause voters to turn on the president.

According to Guy Smith, who advised former President Bill Clinton during his impeachment ordeal, Mueller's own words will carry tremendous weight with voters who have no idea what is in his report on the president.

"Well, what we're going to see is people who have never read the report, which is most everybody, and they have only heard President Trump and the attorney general say he's been exonerated. It does not," he told host Christi Paul. "So, what's going to happen is that they're going to be hearing Robert Mueller in his own words say that the president obstructed justice. The American people have not read this thing."
