A black woman was reading and listening to music on Tuesday afternoon when a racist white man started harassing her outside of a Los Angeles grocery store.
“He had like a pipe or something or stick and he was hitting it on the tales and he tried to hit me with it, but I dodged it,” Angela Jefferson told CBS News. “He was calling me the N-Word … he was calling me the B-Word.”
Jefferson asked the man to stop, but he grew more aggravated. He threw a chair at Jefferson and smashed her belongings.
Dulcinea Circelli, was a witness and recorded the situation. “So I came out here and saw that he had broken a chair and was trying to hit this woman in the head and saying the N-Word, and at that point, I started recording,” Circelli said.
“It was just so scary, and just the fact that he was expecting the security guard to back him up when he was armed and attacking two people with metal rods,” Circelli said.
The video shows other bystanders trying to stop the man, but he continued yelling racial slurs. The man’s motives are unclear, but witness said he was drunk. He fled the scene before police arrived.
“I’m outraged about that and I don’t feel safe personally with him out there,” Circelli added.
Trump hints he may have to bail out ‘our great oil companies’ at coronavirus presser
On Wednesday, at the daily press conference on coronavirus, President Donald Trump suggested that he might be left with no choice but to offer assistance to oil companies.
"Now, gasoline's going to be 99 cents a gallon or less, you know that. That's already popping up. 99 cents," said Trump. "So that's look giving a massive tax cut to people of our country."
"I'm going to meet with the oil companies on Friday," continued Trump. "I'm going to meet with independent oil producers also on Friday or Saturday, maybe Sunday. But we're having a lot of meetings on it. I think I know what to do to solve it. But if they're unable to solve it, then I think I know what to do to solve it. But it's tough. I think I know what to do to solve it. We don't want to lose our great oil companies. We're the number one producer of oil in the world. I do believe there's a way that can be solved or pretty well solved, and I'd rather not do that."
Art of the Deal coauthor claims George Conway has been telling people his wife is in a cult
Tony Schwartz, President Donald Trump's co-author of The Art of the Deal, claims that Republican lawyer George Conway believes his wife has been recruited into a cult.
"Months ago, George Conway told me that Kellyanne Conway is part of a cult, something he has said to many others" Schwartz tweeted on Wednesday. "Her rapturous comments about Trump's response to the Covid-19 crisis prove his point."
It's the first time the comment has made it to the public about the senior White House counselor.
Mr. Conway is the co-founder of the Lincoln Project, a PAC designed to attack President Donald Trump and those who support him with hard-hitting ads and web videos.
Trumps says he wants to build more hospital ships — but doesn’t realize how long it will take
President Donald Trump announced at the press conference Wednesday that he wants at least two more hospital ships like the USNS Comfort and the USNS Mercy tending to coronavirus cases in New York and Los Angeles.
The problem, however, is that building such medical ships would take well over a year, if not two years or more for larger ships. The Atlantic Mercy Hospital Ship was the world's biggest civilian hospital ship upon its completion. And it cost $100 million to build.
