WATCH: GOP teacher opens a can of whoop ass on Oklahoma legislators during statehouse funding protest

Published

on

Thousands of teachers besieged the Oklahoma statehouse today to demand sufficient funding for schools.

Among them was Ray, a fifth-grader teacher in Oklahoma went to the statehouse where he opened a can of whoop ass on state legislators.

The man has worked second jobs at Subway and the Dollar Tree, he says, which is absurd given his level of education.

“There’s something wrong when you have a Master’s Degree and you’re ringing a cash register to help put your kid through college and pay for things like scouting,” he said.

And while the Republican-controlled state legislature says they are just trying to balance needs, he sees something more sinister.

“We’ve got money to fix this,” he said. “And, remember, this is the same legislature that’s found money to give themselves several raises over the last few years, but they’re trying to tell us they can’t put a textbook in every kid’s hand? We’re not buying it, m’am.”

The man indicated that he would remain a loyal Republican—but that he wanted new leadership.

“If they put an ‘R’ on a fence post and run it against one of these ones who don’t fix this funding I will vote for the fence post,” he said.

On Tuesday, The Wall Street Journal reported that Justice Department officials are closing insider trading investigations into three senators — Sens. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), Kelly Loeffler (R-GA), and Jim Inhofe (R-OK).

However, a fourth probe, into insider trading allegations against Sen. Richard Burr (R-NC), is reportedly ongoing.

"The Federal Bureau of Investigation began the investigations two months ago, as reports emerged that several members of Congress, their spouses or their investment advisers sold hundreds of thousands of dollars in stock after lawmakers attended closed-door briefings about the threat posed by the new coronavirus," reported Aruna Viswanatha. "Some of those trades spared lawmakers as much as hundreds of thousands of dollars in losses as stocks sank by mid-March."

White House insider says Trump spent Memorial Day weekend ‘in a rage’ – and sees himself as COVID-19’s biggest victim

Published

An inside source speaking to Vanity Fair's Gabriel Sherman says President Trump spent his Memorial Day weekend "in a f*cking rage" over what he sees is his unfair treatment over his response to the coronavirus outbreak. Even as the death toll neared 100,000 and unemployment swelled to over 38 million, Trump still sees himself as the victim, Sherman writes.

"Trump’s outburst reflected his growing frustration that, at this stage of the race, he is losing to Joe Biden," writes Sherman. "According to a Republican briefed on the campaign’s internal polls, Trump is trailing Biden by double digits among women over 50 in six swing states. 'Trump knows the numbers are bad. It’s why he’s thrashing about,' the Republican said."
