‘I love her to death’: Alabama mayor insists he was only joking about groping 73-year-old governor

Published

on

The mayor of tiny Hanceville, Alabama has apologized for joking that his unseen hand in a Facebook photo taken with Gov. Kay Ivey (R) was engaged in something inappropriate, saying he loved the 73-year-old lawmaker “to death.”

In an interview with Al.com, Mayor Kenneth Nail addressed complaints about the off-the cuff he made on Facebook, after a friend pointed out that his right hand can’t be seen in the picture.

In the photo (see below), Nail is seen standing to the left and slightly behind the governor.

In the comments on the post, one Facebook user asked, “Where is your right hand”

“She did have a smile on her face, didn’t she LOL,” Nail responded.

Other commenters did not appreciate the joke causing Nail to later delete it and defend it as harmless.

“It was one friend to another, just a little funny,” Nail said in an interview. “I didn’t say where my hand was or anything else.”

“I would never disrespect our governor. I love her to death,” Nail continued. “I would never disrespect anybody. That was an old friend of mine who worked at the Cullman police department with me. He said a little something and I said, ‘Well, she did have a smile on her face’ and just left it at that. Your imagination can be whatever it is.”

“I never said I was touching her and I wouldn’t touch her. I wouldn’t do that. I wouldn’t disrespect the governor or anything like that,” Nail protested, before adding, “That was it.”

House Republicans have 3 key defenses of Trump’s Ukraine extortion campaign — and they’re all terrible

Published

on

To any halfway objective observer, the first day of public hearings in House Democrats’ impeachment inquiry, which are ongoing as of this writing, have not gone well for Trump’s defenders.

Bill Taylor, the top US ambassador in Kyiv, and veteran State Department official George Kent came off as principled and non-partisan as they delivered damning testimony about the Trump regime’s multifaceted campaign to coerce the Ukrainian government to announce an investigation into fringe right-wing conspiracy theories designed to deflect blame for interfering in the 2016 election from Russia and onto Ukraine.

Progressives hilariously ridicule Donald Trump Jr.’s new book with their own Trump triggers #TriggerDonaldTrumpJr

Published

on

President Donald Trump's eldest child and namesake has published a book about liberals he says are "triggered" by conservatives. Ironically, it seems Donald Trump Jr. is the one who seems to be triggered by the reception he's getting from some on his book tour.

The hashtag, #TriggerDonaldTrumpJr has nothing to do with Jr's new book, rather it's progressives using his book title to mock the Trump child. Internet users were torn between mocking the young Trump for desperately trying to get his father's attention, scrambling to seem relevant, trying to launch his own political career, trying to make his own money and so much more.

‘Blather and hysteria’: Conservative columnist explains why GOP anti-impeachment ‘antics’ just crashed and burned

Published

devin nunes defeat

Rep. Jim Jordan of Ohio, Rep. Devin Nunes of California and other House Republicans were clearly trying to rally the Trumpian base on Wednesday, when the impeachment inquiry against President Donald Trump offered its first public testimony. Jordan and Nunes aggressively tried to discredit the inquiry and the two witnesses who testified: diplomat William B. Taylor (U.S. ambassador to Ukraine) and Deputy Assistant Secretary of State George P. Kent. But conservative Washington Post opinion writer Jennifer Rubin, in a Wednesday column, stressed that House Republicans — for all their “antics and conspiracy theories” — failed to show why Trump shouldn’t be impeached, while House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff and other House Democrats showed why he should.
