Gay Trump supporter goes berserk on woman who commented on his MAGA hat outside comedy club

Published

A gay Trump supporter insists he did nothing wrong after a woman accused him of banging a knife on her car window during an altercation outside a Texas comedy club.

Carl Pacheco wore a “Make America Great Again” hat and a T-shirt covered front and back with images of President Donald Trump outside Kathy Griffin’s show Monday night at Houston’s Jones Hall when he got into an argument with a woman, reported OutSmart Magazine.

The woman shouted an expletive at Pacheco, who works as a realtor, about his pro-Trump attire — and he responded by calling her a “c*nt.”

Pacheco then approached the woman’s vehicle, kicked the passenger-side front door and then banged a knife on the glass, according the woman.

Pacheco, who told the magazine he was a gay Latino immigrant, defended his actions.

“I am cooperating with the police investigation,” Pacheco said. “I don’t feel I’ve done anything wrong based on the laws and the circumstances of what happened.”

He suggested the investigation was tilted against him because the alleged victims were “white middle-aged people,” and he complained that he was being “demonized” as a “neo-Nazi.”

Pacheco referred reporters to his attorney, Michael Mercer, who claimed the realtor wore pro-Trump clothing in hopes of engaging in debates with fans of Griffin, an outspoken critic of the president.

“He went to that concert expecting to be able to have political conversations with people who were there, which is something that everybody should be able to do,” Mercer said. “Unfortunately that wasn’t able to happen.”

Mercer told the magazine he believed the victims “had too much to drink and got offended” by Pacheco’s clothing, although the alleged victim, Michele Nunez, insisted she does not drink alcohol.

The incident remains under investigation by Houston police, who asked Nunez’s husband to remove a video of the altercation from his YouTube channel — which the man agreed to do.

Published

In a column for CNN, former federal prosecutor Elie Honig reviewed the criminal complaint filed against ex-Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin and said it gives clues as to the direction prosecutors are likely to follow to convict the alleged killer of Georg Floyd -- but it also leaves out  key elements of the case that should be brought before a jury.

As Honig wrote, the case against Chauvin is strong but may not go far enough.

Trump security advisor goes off on Antifa rant to duck grilling on president’s ‘vicious dogs’ protester threat

Published

on

Appearing on CNN's "State of the Union" with Jake Tapper, White House National Security Adviser Robert O’Brien ducked directly defending the president's Saturday threat to use "vicious dogs and ominous weapons" of Washington D.C. protesters, by instead talking about supposed Antifa activity during the George Floyd protests.

After reading the president's tweet, host Tapper pressed,  "Do you think messages like that are helping to unite the country and calm fears?”

With O'Brien noting, "[Trump] was trying to de-escalate. He didn’t want violence, he’s trying to stop the violence that we saw that took place overnight," he then went on to drag in reports being pushed by Donald Trump's administration that Antifa -- which he mentioned frequently during the entire interview -- had taken over the protests.
