‘Not what 9-1-1 was designed for’: Devin Nunes slammed for ‘calling the police’ on protesting constituents

Published

on

Congressman Devin Nunes (R-CA) was publicly called out for misusing 9-1-1 by beckoning police to shield him from constituents in his central valley congressional district.

“Clovis police were called and the building housing Congressman Devin Nunes’ office was locked during a rally for Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security on Tuesday,” the Fresno Bee reported.

Constituents were also protesting Rep. Nunes using his position as chair of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (HPSCI) to protect President Donald Trump from congressional scrutiny.

“Nunes is a puppet for Trump,” argued Gene Roza of the California Alliance for Retired Americans. “We pay for [his office], we should have access to it.”

Police suggested it was actually a grey area, even though taxpayer funds rent the official office space from a private company.

“This isn’t a public building, even though he’s a public servant,” said Clovis Police Cpl. Max Garces.

He also told the Fresno Bee that office staff have called 9-1-1 on protesters before.

Andrew Janz, the Democratic Primary nominee challenging Nunes in the 22nd congressional district, applauded the Clovis Police Department for, “keeping the peace and allowing demonstrators to exercise their 1st Amendment rights.”

“Nunes’ people keep calling the police wasting law enforcement resources. This is not what 911 was designed for,” Janz explained. “Nunes’ office is public property paid for by us.”

‘He should be hospitalized’: Internet stunned after Trump goes off on completely incoherent Mt Rushmore rant

Published

on

President Donald Trump was asked on Tuesday whether his face should appear on Mount Rushmore along with other major American presidents.

“If I answer that question yes, I will end up with such bad publicity,” Trump told The Hill, before pivoting to an incoherent rant about fireworks.

The president's rambling shocked many people on Twitter:

Apart from Trump’s apparent inability to string together coherent English sentences on the fly, note also the sheer ignorance and apathy toward the idea that there might be legitimate reasons why fireworks are not detonated around the Black Hills. https://t.co/jja2XD19Mw

 ENOUGH IS ENOUGH 

Trump endorses killing journalists, like Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi. Online ad networks are now targeting sites that cover acts of violence against dissidents, LGBTQ people and people of color.
