An Air Force sergeant went off in a racist rant to her black subordinates and the entire thing was caught on video.
Nellis Air Force technical sergeant Geraldine Lovely posted the video Sunday, according to the Daily Mail. She’s in an undisclosed location complaining about the lack of respect she says she receives from the black women who report to her. She brought up the “angry black woman” trope to justify her commentary.
“…but they’re Black females. And it pisses me the f**k off that they have no f**king respect and constantly having an attitude and what the f**k is up with that,” she says in the video. “I am trying my best to hold my professionalism with them but good god, they have no f**king respect whatsoever every time I talk to them it’s like ‘no ma’am.’”
She went on to accuse her subordinates talk down to her.
“And I’m trying to tread lightly as a higher-ranking SEO not to blow the f**k up and start a fight club,” she continued. “But why is that why is it every time I encounter my subordinates that are Black females, they have a giant f**king attitude? Every time, I talk to them it’s like I’m just some stupid a** girl. What is that called? – like I don’t even deserve to be talked to as a person.”
The video disappeared after the backlash began, but not before it was downloaded and shared on other Facebook pages and YouTube. At the time of deletion it had over 1.2 million views.
She has temporarily been removed pending an investigation.
“While the actions of this individual are inappropriate and unacceptable, we are using this unfortunate situation to continue a dialogue with our Airmen about the topic of good order and discipline, as well as adherence to the Air Force Core Values,” Air Force authorities said in a statement.

McConnell is running a ‘scam’ to keep Bolton from testifying so Trump’s trial can end without any more damage: columnist
According to Greg Sargent at the Washington Post, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is trying to pull one over on the Democrats in his attempt to make sure former national security adviser John Bolton doesn't speak during the impeachment trial of Donald Trump -- and that Democrats should call his bluff.
Noting a CNN report that states, "A growing number of Republicans are pointing to President Donald Trump's threat to invoke executive privilege in order to make their case against subpoenas sought by Democrats for key witnesses and documents, a development that could bolster Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's goal of a swift end to the impeachment trial," as an excuse to keep Bolton at arms-length from testifying, the Wapo columnist said executive privilege may not be the stop-gap Republicans think it is.
‘Jury tampering’: Internet explodes after WH threatens that senators’ heads ‘will be on a pike’ if they vote to convict
The news was so shocking some thought it was fake. But as CBS News reports, the White House is threatening Republican Senators to not vote to convict President Donald Trump in his impeachment trial, or else.
That "or else" was revealed by CBS News' Chief Congressional Correspondent Nancy Cordes, who reports, "One Trump confidant tells CBS News that GOP senators have been warned: 'Vote against the president and your head will be on a pike.'"
The revelation comes at the 1:17 mark:

The View’s Meghan McCain responds to GOP senator’s smear of impeachment witness: What about Hillary Clinton?
"The View" co-host Meghan McCain changed the subject from Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) to Hillary Clinton during a discussion of the impeachment trial.
Guest host Ana Navarro took exception to Blackburn's attacks on Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, who testified against President Donald Trump in the impeachment inquiry, after House managers cited his allegations against the president and some of his top officials.
"Yesterday Sen. Marsha Blackburn from Tennessee spent hours, tweeted out and spent hours on TV attacking Vindman, Alexander Vindman, questioned his patriotism," Navarro said. "This is a guy who has a Purple Heart because of the injuries he received in the Iraq War, he still has shrapnel in his body. His parents are Soviet Jews who fled communism. I can't explain how angry I am about that."
