Homophobic ex-con issues rare Facebook apology after pulling a gun while hurling slurs in a gay bar

Published

on

After being arrested for brandishing an illegal weapon while hurling homophobic slurs in a gay bar located in North Carolina’s capital, a man with a lengthy rap sheet issued a rare Facebook apology for his actions.

The incident, first reported by the News & Observer, involved 27-year-old Grayson Pittman, a resident of nearby Zebulon, NC who was arrested early Tuesday morning for shouting gay slurs while showing an illegally-owned pistol at Raleigh’s Ruby Deluxe bar. He was reportedly arguing with the bar’s staff and using the slurs when he showed the weapon.

Queerty subsequently reported that Pittman wrote an apology to the bar and its staff on Facebook.

“I apologize to Ruby’s and the staff for my actions and choice of words,” Pittman wrote in the post, which was obtained by Queerty. “I made a mistake and very poor judgement.”

In the post, Pittman appeared to suggest he was leaving the bar when someone issued threats toward him in response to some “rude comments.”

“No excuses,” he continued, “what I did was wrong and I apologize!”

The News & Observer noted that along with the pistol, Pittman was also carrying “a Taser stun gun and a fixed blade knife in the backpack.”

The newspaper also noted that “it is not illegal to have a concealed handgun in an establishment that serves alcohol unless the person with the gun drinks alcohol.”

According to Politico, three more senators met with Pentagon officials for a classified briefing Wednesday about encounters pilots are having with unidentified aircraft. It seems the Pentagon is getting more and more requests by officials with high clearances to figure out what's happening.

The crafts are, at their most basic, nothing more than "unidentified aircraft," and while it isn't likely they're little green men, there are some senators who might have concerns about whether these UFOs are actually a foreign adversary.

Wall Street Journal issues blistering editorial asking Trump what the point is of a second term

Published

on

In a blistering editorial, the Wall Street Journal is asking President Donald Trump what the point of a second term is since he hasn't done anything in his first term.

During his rally in Orlando Tuesday, Trump repeated the same tired lines and same tired policies from 2016. The "Promises Made, Promises Kept" slogan shown over the crowd, yet the supporters didn't understand the irony.

"The most striking fact of his speech was how backward looking it was," the editorial board said. "Every incumbent needs to remind voters of his record, Mr. Trump more than most because the media are so hostile."

‘Crosses a line’: New York Times publisher unleashes on Trump for accusing paper of ‘treason’

Published

on

On Wednesday, New York Times publisher A. G. Sulzberger wrote a blistering editorial in the Wall Street Journal, saying that President Donald Trump's latest attack on his paper "crosses a line."

First it was the "the failing New York Times." Then "fake news." Then "enemy of the people," wrote Sulzberger. "President Trump's escalating attacks on The New York Times have paralleled his broader barrage on American media. He's gone from misrepresenting our business, to assaulting our integrity, to demonizing our journalists with a phrase that’s been used by generations of demagogues. Now the president has escalated his attacks even further, accusing the Times of a crime so grave it is punishable by death.
