WATCH: Neighbor reports black Minnesota boy’s hot dog stand — and the cops took the kid’s side

Published

A 13-year-old Minnesota boy feared he might have to close down his hot dog stand after a neighbor reported it. Instead, he’s getting a lesson in business development from the city, KHOU 11 reports.

Jaequan Faulkner started a food stand in his Minneapolis neighborhood in 2016 with the help of his uncle. This year, he decided to re-open Mr. Faulkner’s Old Fashioned Hot Dogs.

Which is when someone reported him.

But instead of shuttering the business, the authorities set about helping him become a fully legal food stand. He now has a business license and has been inspected by the health department. Staffers at the Health Department chipped in to buy the $87 permit.

“I pay me and my uncle and my cousin,” Faulkner said. “But before I do any of that I pay tax.”

Faulker is aware that many other kids around the country have had issues with lemonade stands and the like.

“Surprisingly, I’m like, dang the city’s not the bad guys in this situation. They’re actually the ones who are helping me,” Faulkner said. “It makes me feel kind of—not kind of—really proud that people know what I’m doing.”

Trump goes on insane conspiratorial rant accusing Obama of being behind the ‘corrupt’ 2016 election

Published

President Donald Trump on Wednesday went on a crazed conspiratorial rant in which he accused former President Barack Obama of being behind the purportedly "corrupt" election in 2016 that Trump himself actually won.

During a joint press conference with Sergio Mattarella, the president uncorked a rambling tirade in which he claimed without any evidence that Obama had tried to rig the 2016 election against him.

"It was a corrupt election," Trump said, before saying that Attorney General Bill Barr was looking into whether that corruption "goes right up to President Obama." The president then predicted that the investigation would implicate Obama.

"[Hill] described Mr. Sondland, a hotelier and Trump donor-turned-ambassador, as metaphorically driving in an unfamiliar place with no guardrails and no GPS," the Times reports.
