Published

Texas Republican Briscoe Cain was thrown out of the state’s Democratic party convention after he snuck in with a gun and tried to “prank” attendees by handing out lawn signs, the Star-Telegram reports.

State Rep. Briscoe Cain, R-Deer Park, and a handful of other Republican activists were thrown out after handing out fake yard signs reading, “This home is a gun-free safe space.”

Attendee Mirian Spencer shot video of Cain lifting his shirt to show what appeared to be a holstered weapon after an attendee asks him “When’d you go gun-free?”

Cain seemed to believe that the signs would put people in danger.

“Nobody should put this in front of their house,” he told the Star-Telegram. “It”s amazing how many people took one and thanked us. They said they would put it in front of their house. I think it’s funny.”

Cain was previously in the news when he mocked Stephen Hawking immediately after his death.

‘A coward and a commander’: New Lincoln Project ad contrasts Trump with James Mattis

Published

on

On Friday, the conservative anti-Trump group The Lincoln Project released a new attack ad against President Donald Trump — this time using the criticism of his former Defense Secretary James Mattis, and comparing and contrasting their leadership ability.

"This is the story of a coward and a commander," said the ad's narrator. "The coward Trump dodged the draft. Jim Mattis led American troops for forty years. While a frightened Trump hides from protesters in a deep bunker firing off tweets, Jim Mattis does what he's always done: Leads. While Donald Trump angrily attacks, General Mattis' words deserve to be heard by every American."
