A Republican state lawmaker from Missouri filmed himself beheading a live chicken to make a video that he says is making a “point” about abortion.
Per the Huffington Post, Missouri Rep. Mike Moon begins the video holding a knife in one hand while grabbing the neck of a strung-up chicken with the other. He explains that even though he’s supposed to be on summer vacation, he’s ready to get “back to work” to pass his new anti-abortion legislation.
At that point, he takes the knife and slices the chicken’s head clear off its body.
“We’ve been called back to the special session for the primary purpose of supporting life, protecting the unborn specifically,” he said, before announcing he was filing a bill that would end legalized abortion in his state.
Some of Moon’s followers on Facebook were upset by the video, and one of them told him that it was a “gross” thing to post.
“Just think how gross abortion is,” Moon replied. “I wasn’t trying to make a comparison, but simply to get a couple of points across: to the governor (I’m not on vacation and I’m just as much a career politician as he is) and if we truly are concerned about protecting the lives of the unborn, we should take action that will lead to the end of abortion.”

REVEALED: Kayleigh McEnany called Biden a ‘man of the people’ who connects better with the ‘middle class’ than Trump
White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany is a loyal mouthpiece for President Donald Trump, both in presidential policy and against his political opponents in the election campaign. She has echoed Trump's attacks on Joe Biden, calling him a "radical socialist" and using monikers like "Sleepy."
But on Monday, CNN unearthed audio of McEnany from 2015 during an interview on New York AM970, in which she offered a very different view.
"I think the Republicans run into a problem if it is Joe Biden and if it is maybe a Trump on the other side," said McEnany. "Because Joe Biden, one of the things he is remarkable at is really kind of being a man of the people and resonating with middle class voters. Feeling like — coming off as human. His gaffes — as much as we make fun of them — to a certain extent they make him look human. So not, since he's likable."
Trump whines that he shouldn’t be blamed for ‘Lock Her Up!’ chants — as his supporters chant it
President Donald J. Trump refuted responsibility for his rally cries of "lock her up" during a campaign stop in Martinsburg, Penn. Monday.
"Lock her up," the crowds chanted. To which Trump replied, "Now [the chants] are happening with [Joe] Biden because that's a crime family, frankly. But every time that happens, when they say, 'lock her up,' they always blame me and I have nothing to do with it."

‘Segregated South type behavior’: Americans are furious at ‘scared’ Texas’s Gov. Abbott deploying Guard troops to the polls
Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) announced that he is deploying troops to the polls in the state, something that a president can't even do because it can suppress the vote.
“The Texas Army National Guard said Monday it had been ordered to dispatch 1,000 troops to five major cities around the state in conjunction with the Nov. 3 election,” San Antonio Express-News reported on Monday.
It sent people into flames of rage claiming that it was an example of a Republican governor behaving like a segregationist from the 1950s.
