Alabama frat under investigation after president dressed like Trump and chased students posing as ‘Mexicans’

Published

on

For this past Halloween, members of the FarmHouse fraternity at Alabama’s Troy University decided to host a party where their president dressed as President Donald Trump and chased other members, posing as “Mexicans, over a “border wall.”

As The Tab initially reported, video of the stunt was posted on Snapchat to advertise the party. It shows Troy FarmHouse president Andrew Dearing dressed as Trump, chasing two students pretending to be Mexicans by wearing ponchos and sombreros, as well as two others who pretend to be border patrol agents.

“This is unacceptable and should not go unnoticed,” Kiona Ceaser, a Troy student, told The Tab. “There are many issues that go unnoticed, but when a group of our peers (especially a few that are recognized as leaders of the university) publicly bash and attack another group of individuals, the university should not take the situation lightly.”

After the incident went viral, the university responded in kind by opening an investigation into the party and the frat’s actions, AL.com reports. They issued a statement saying they don’t “condone the actions and images depicted in the video.”

Troy’s FarmHouse chapter also issued an apology, saying “these actions fall well short of the standards we expect of our members, and the individuals responsible will face appropriate disciplinary action.”

As the Beast notes, "The super PAC America First Action reported receiving a $325,000 contribution last year from a company called Global Energy Producers. But records released in federal court this week indicate that contribution came from an entirely different company," adding that the discrepancy was pointed out by the  Campaign Legal Center which labeled it a violation of federal campaign-finance laws.

Senate delivers stinging bipartisan rebuke to Trump — and blocks Saudi arms sales

Published

on

The Trump White House suffered a stinging defeat on Thursday when a bipartisan coalition of lawmakers voted to block sales of American arms to Saudi Arabia.

The vote in favor of blocking the arms sales received affirmative votes from all Senate Democrats, as well as votes from Sens. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), Susan Collins (R-ME), Jerry Moran (R-KS), Lisa Murkowski (R-AK), Rand Paul (R-KY), Mike Lee (R-UT) and Todd Young (R-IN).

Graham, who is usually one of President Donald Trump's staunchest allies, said he voted for the bill because he believed the United States could not ignore the behavior of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad Bin Salman, as well as the Saudi government's killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi.
