‘Thug granny’ who went berserk on two black soldiers gets charged with battery

Published

on

The 70-something year old white Georgia woman who, along with her son, launched an attack Saturday that many describe as both racist and homophobic, has been charged. Video of the assault, showing her hitting one of the two Black women soldiers in a restaurant, went viral.

Judy Tucker has been charged with battery, The Associated Press reports. She had been taken into custody Saturday and released on $650 bond.

“A Bibb County Sheriff’s report says Judy James Tucker told deputies it all started because she’s white and it was a race issue,” the AP says.

The report says 34-year-old Stephanie Mitchell told deputies that Tucker’s adult son, Robbie, used obscene, sexist language as he told her and 27-year-old Treasure Sharpe to “learn how to park” on Saturday. Then, report says, the Tuckers followed the uniformed women inside, where Robbie Tucker called them “black lesbian b——.”

At one point, Sharpe says “I’m pregnant,” and Robbie Tucker says “Oh really, by her?”

Queerty notes that “Tucker is, er, was the proud owner of Judy Tucker’s Complete Art Restoration. Since the appalling video surfaced, however, she has shut down her website and evidently closed up shop.”

The restaurant has banned Tucker.

“The Cheddar’s restaurant chain sent NBC affiliate station 11alive the following statement: ‘We were appalled by the behavior of the individuals who confronted the two female service members. Such behavior flies in the face of our values and those individuals are no longer welcome in our restaurant,'” The Daily Dot reports.

And Tucker appears to have lost an occasional teaching job.

“Judy Tucker is not currently employed at Mercer University. She has occasionally taught an art class in the past, but will not be teaching at Mercer in the future,” the school told WUSA9.

‘Not a pretty picture’: Second-ranking GOP senator inches closer to impeachment after Bill Taylor testimony

Published

on

The second-ranking Republican senator sounded an alarm over testimony by the former Ukraine ambassador.

GOP Whip John Thune (R-SD) reacted to testimony Tuesday by veteran diplomat Bill Taylor, who told lawmakers that President Donald Trump directed efforts to pressure Ukraine to announce an investigation of Joe Biden in exchange for congressionally approved military aid.

"The picture coming out based on the reporting we’ve seen is not a good one," Thune told reporters Wednesday, "but I would say until we have a process that allows to see this with full transparency it’s pretty hard to come to hard and fast conclusions."

Published

on

On Wednesday, Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) led a gang of two dozen conservative lawmakers as they barged into a classified evidence meeting in the impeachment proceeding against President Donald Trump.

Gaetz — who is not a member of the Intelligence Committee but has demanded the right to review sensitive evidence as if he is one — received scorn from commenters on social media for his stunt:

This is their plan? I’m so fucking relieved we’re up against Matt Gaetz.

BUSTED: Newly uncovered White House budget docs undercut one of Trump’s last defenses in Ukraine scandal

Published

on

President Donald Trump's insistence that he only pushed Ukraine to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden because he was concerned about "corruption" has been one of his primary defenses against House Democrats' impeachment inquiry.

However, the Washington Post has uncovered some White House budget documents that directly undercut the president's defense.

According to the Post, the Trump administration "has sought repeatedly to cut foreign aid programs tasked with combating corruption in Ukraine and elsewhere overseas" even though the White House has insisted that it is laser-focused on promoting good governance in the country.
