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

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.

However, Republican strategist Stuart Stevens, who is currently working for Trump primary challenger Bill Weld, says it would be a mistake to confuse Trump's bigoted impulses with a well thought out battle plan.

"There is always this need to attribute this master plan to Trump because otherwise, you have to come to terms with the fact that he’s a blithering idiot," Stevens said in an interview with the Huffington Post.

Here is why Nancy Pelosi allowed a House impeachment vote

Published

Admitting that he isn't privy to insider knowledge from the Democratic leadership, Bloomberg columnist Jonathan Bernstein suggested that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi may be playing a much longer game on the possibility of impeachment hearings on Donald Trump than her detractors believe.

Wondering, "Is Nancy Pelosi closer to impeachment?' Bernstein writes, "Usually, when a regular bill or resolution has been introduced, it’s then referred to committee. If the majority party doesn’t want to consider the bill, it will die with no further action. Under House rules, however, any member can force an impeachment resolution onto the floor as pending business. That’s what [Rep. Al] Green (D-TX) did Wednesday."

Trump falsely claims he stopped his supporters from chanting ‘Send her back!’

Published

On Wednesday night, President Donald Trump held a rally in Greenville, North Carolina, where he singled out Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), accusing her and the other Democratic congresswomen known as "the Squad" of not loving America.

In response, the crowd began to shout "Send her back!"

Trump allowed the crowd to continue the chant for a full 12 seconds before continuing his speech.

The next day, amidst criticism that he was riling up his fans to dangerous levels, Trump claimed that he had indeed shut down the chant, in direct contradiction to the video. New York Times journalist Peter Baker reported Trump's claim on Twitter.
