Jay-Z has harsh words for the former neighborhood coordinator who killed an unarmed black child in 2012.
George Zimmerman is angry about HOVA’s upcoming documentary about the killing of Trayvon Martin, the black child who Zimmerman gunned down in a condo complex outside Orlando.
“I know how to handle people who fuck with me, I have since February 2012,” Zimmerman said after a film crew working on the project contacted his family. “Anyone who fucks with my parents will be fed to an alligator.”
“I would beat him as if I was Solange,” Zimmerman said to the Orlando Sentinel, referencing the incident in which Jay-Z’s sister-in-law hit the rapper in leaked security footage from an elevator.
Jay-Z has responded on a just-released track by Miami producer DJ Khaled. The track, “Top Off” also features Future and Jay-Z’s wife Beyonce.
“Meanwhile Georgie Porgie Zimmerman sendin’ me threats/Save your breath, you couldn’t beat a flight of steps,” Jay raps. “Try that shit with a grown man/I’ll kill that fuckboy with my own hand/And hop back in the coupe.”
Here’s the video. Below that is the trailer for the documentary.
Trump officials could face criminal charges for USPS sabotage — and the president may not be able to pardon them
Members of the Trump administration could face legal jeopardy over efforts to sabotage U.S. Postal Service operations to interfere with the 2020 presidential elections.
"Rep. Bill Pascrell, Jr. (D-NJ) made a criminal referral to the New Jersey Attorney General on Friday night, asking him to impanel a grand jury to look at possible breach of state election laws by President Trump, Postmaster General Louis DeJoy and others for 'their accelerating arson of the post office,' he said. Alarming headlines have emerged in recent days as many states prepare to facilitate widespread mail balloting due to the coronavirus pandemic. President Trump openly admitted he was withholding federal aid from the postal service to prevent mail-in voting, and USPS has notified 46 states and D.C. that it will struggle to deliver some mail ballots on time," The Daily Beast reported Friday.
Maddow reveals how one state stood up to Trump’s USPS cuts — and won
MSNBC anchor Rachel Maddow's opening segment on Friday focused on a positive story of political pressure stopping one of the Trump administration's attacks on the U.S. Postal Service.
Maddow reported how NBC Montana reporter Maritsa Georgiou had doggedly reported on the removal of postal boxes in Missoula, where she is based. Missoula has been a long-time Democratic Party stronghold.
Montana has a competitive U.S. Senate election in 2020, with Democratic Gov. Steve Bullock challenging first-term Republican Sen. Steve Daines.
As Georgiou chased the story, she learned there were also plans to remove boxes in the battleground of Billings. And more planned for the blue town of Bozeman. And other towns.
