Ex-head of South Carolina GOP told cops he is the ‘second coming of Christ’ after arrest for killing his mom’s dog

Published

The former leader of the South Carolina Republican Party killed his mom’s dog while living at home with his parents — and told police that God told him to because he’s the second coming of Christ.

The State reported that Todd Kincannon, once an attorney and executive director of the state’s GOP, has had a steep fall from grace that’s resulted in his most recent arrest for “cruelly” killing his mother’s 10-year-old dog Bailey.

“I’m the second coming of Christ and I got a command from God to do it,” the former GOP official said.

According to the arrest warrant, the 37-year-old Greenville County resident “intentionally, willfully, maliciously, cruelly and needlessly” tortured the beagle mix by first choking the dog and then stabbing it multiple times with two separate knives.

When police came to Kincannon’s parents’ house, he was found covered in blood and fur and was wearing only his underwear.

This isn’t the first time the former attorney and GOP official has had trouble with the law. In 2015, Kincannon was arrested for threatening his wife and locking her in his car. He blamed the incident on being under the influence of cough syrup.

"This racial street theater against black people is an endemic, primal feature of the Republic," Blow write. "Specifically, I am enraged by white women weaponizing racial anxiety, using their white femininity to activate systems of white terror against black men. This has long been a power white women realized they had and that they exerted."

Trump White House hammered for covering up their own economic projections as jobs vanish

Published

on

The Trump White House has decided against releasing midyear economic projections this summer, breaking precedent at a time when unemployment is expected to top 20 percent.

The Washington Post reports that the administration is not releasing updated economic projections that "would almost certainly codify an administration assessment that the coronavirus pandemic has led to a severe economic downturn" with massive job losses that have topped 36 million in just two months.
