Colorado State president tells racists to pick another school in an epic apology for racist incident on admissions tour

Published

The president of Colorado State University has just released an epic apology for the racist incident that happened during an admissions tour at the school this week.

Two Native American teens, 19-year-old Thomas Kanewakeron Gray and 17-year-old Lloyd Skanahwati Gray, had scraped up money and traveled to tour their “dream school.” The mother of another student touring the school called the police on them because she was “nervous” that they were being quiet. The two teens were stopped and had their pockets searched by cops. They lost the tour and felt dejected, so they left.

“They scraped together their dollars, made arrangements themselves to register for the campus tour, and took the only car we have and drove up there,” their mom said. “And how it ended was even worse.”

Now, university president Dr. Tony Frank is speaking up and forcefully apologizing.

“Two young men, through no fault of their own, wound up frightened and humiliated because another campus visitor was concerned about their clothes and overall demeanor, which appears to have simply been shyness,” he wrote. “If you’re uncomfortable with a diverse and inclusive academic environment, then you probably have a better fit elsewhere.”

“Hate is not made uncomfortable. Hate does not shrink from fear. What affects hate is our willingness to shine a bright and unwavering light on it and to face it and confront it,” he said. “There is no place for hate at Colorado State University, and we will not be silent when we see it.”

"Before setting himself on fire on Ukraine yesterday, Mick Mulvaney came into the White House briefing room to break to the nation the fact the that the Trump Doral golf resort turns out to be -- in his estimation, organically, just sitting there -- the best possible place to have a G-7 Summit of world leaders," MSNBC's Brian Williams reported. "That was provision number one. There’s no better place that we can find. Number two was, the president will not profit from said G-7."

Bill Maher reveals plan to ‘bribe’ Trump with one billion dollars — for him to leave office

The Constitution has two mechanisms to remove President Donald Trump from office prior to his term ending on January 20, 2021: impeachment and the 25th Amendment.

HBO "Real Time" host Bill Maher noted that Trump could also choose to resign.

Maher waved around a $1 million check that he said he would give to Trump to quit.

He said he also knew 1,000 people who would do the same -- which would land Trump over $1 billion.

Maher said even poor people would pawn their wedding rings to add to the pot.

Trump can’t fire Mulvaney because nobody else wants to be his chief of staff: report

Published

on

White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney will likely stay on at the White House despite his public confession of a quid pro quo in the Ukraine scandal at the center of the impeachment inquiry, The New York Times reported Friday.

"But Mr. Mulvaney’s job has been anything but normal since the news conference on Thursday at which he seemingly undermined the Trump administration’s strategy for avoiding impeachment by acknowledging that Mr. Trump had sought a quid pro quo for providing Ukraine with American aid," the newspaper reported. "In the chaotic aftermath, the president’s Republican allies are questioning Mr. Mulvaney’s savvy and intelligence even as the Trump campaign is defiantly turning one of his lines from the news conference into a T-shirt."
