Store owner chased black customers out of shop while yelling N-word — then tried to blame it on an employee

Published

The CEO of an organic popcorn store in Emeryville, California was seen by multiple witnesses chasing black customers out of his store over the weekend while repeatedly calling them “n*ggers.”

The San Francisco Chronicle reports that Mark Stone, the founder and CEO of Cornology, has confirmed that “an employee” of his hurled racial slurs at black customers while demanding they leave the store.

However, a photo taken of the “employee” at the time the incident took place looks exactly like Stone himself — and a city official who is looking into the incident tells the Chronicle that it was, in fact, Stone yelling at the black customers.

The photo of the Cornology employee was taken by Bay Area resident Fay Eastman-Adams, who posted it on her Facebook account along with a description of what she witnessed.

“This business owner just chased a group of young black kids out of Cornology yelling, ‘Don’t come back here n*ggers!'” she wrote. “I asked him why are you yelling at those kids like that?! You can’t go around calling people niggers. Those are kids. This nut says, ‘well what do I call them?’ Then went on to explain why he should be able to call them kids that derogatory racial slur.”

Although Stone initially blamed an unnamed “employee” for hurling racial slurs, he stopped responding to the Chronicle’s questions when confronted with evidence that he was the only employee working at the store that day.

Speaking with host Margaret Brennan, Cornyn was asked about allegations made by Rudy Giuliani associate Lev Parnas that have implicated not only the president but Vice President Mike Pence and senior White House officials in an attempt to strongarm the leaders of Ukraine in return for military aid.

"Doesn't it trouble you that [Parnas] was working so closely with Rudy Giuliani, who was acting on the president's behalf and saying he was acting on the president's behalf?" host Brennan asked. "

‘No sound basis’: Georgetown law professor explains why Alan Dershowitz will crumble under Senate questioning

Published

on

Georgetown law professor John Mikhail suggested on Sunday that the portion of President Donald Trump's defense which is being covered by Alan Dershowitz to fail because it has "no sound basis" in history and law.

"There is no sound basis for Alan Dershowitz to claim that abuse of power is not an impeachable offense. In addition to being at odds with common sense, this claim is contradicted by a clear and consistent body of historical evidence," Mikhail stated.

The law professor cited the impeachment of Warren Hastings in the 1780s.

"Some of the best evidence comes from the case of Warren Hastings, which informed the drafting Art. II, Sec 4," Mikhail wrote. "The fact that he was not guilty of treason, but still deserved to be impeached, was a major reason 'other high crimes and misdemeanors' was added to the Constitution."

Speaking with host Alex Witt, Omarosa -- who wrote an insider's account of life in the White House after she was unceremoniously fired -- said there was little in the new book that surprised her.

Digging into her Oval Office days, the former adviser and longtime Trump associate described the president's "zero to 200" screaming jags when displeased.
