A Washington man attacked a black kitchen worker on sight at a Denny’s restaurant — and then fought with police officers trying to arrest him.

The black cook said he went to a corner of the restaurant to take his break, and a customer — later identified as Rory French — immediately began using racial slurs against him, reported The News Tribune.

The employee went back to the kitchen to get away from the angry man, who continued taunting the cook.

“You are going down, I am going to kill you,” French allegedly said — punctuating each threat with a racial slur.

Another customer stepped up to stop the 41-year-old French, who punched the man three times before other customers wrangled him by the straps on his overalls, the newspaper reported.

Customers held French by his overalls until Pierce County sheriff’s deputies arrived, and the good Samaritan returned to his chicken-fried steak breakfast.

A deputy tried to distract French so he would turn around to be handcuffed.

“Hey, what’s that?” the deputy said, pointing out a window behind French.

“That’s a n*gger,” French said, without turning around.

Deputies moved to arrest French, who then raised his fist.

“He still wasn’t cooperative and assaulted one of our officers — and the fight was on,” said detective Ed Troyer.

Deputies took the Graham man to the ground, but French continued to resist their efforts to put him in neck hold.

The struggle continued until a deputy kneed French in the shoulder, and they were able to place him in handcuffs.

French, who has prior convictions for assault, was charged with a hate crime, malicious harassment, assault and resisting arrest.

“He was actually going after somebody because of their race,” Troyer said, “but then it became a fight with anybody and anything.”

Trump has 66 GOP endorsements ‘former national security and senior officials’ — who have no real experience: conservative

Published

In an election year, it is commonplace for candidates to list lengthy endorsements in an effort to showcase the trust, loyalty and earned respect by recognizable names and organizations. This year, the process is a bit different.

Democratic nominee Joe Biden is winning far more endorsements from national security professionals and retired flag officers — and by a large margin. The former vice president has the endorsement of 780 retired military officers and national security appointees — nearly 12 times as many as Trump. On the flip-side, Trump has a total of 66.

Trump mask-shames CBS reporter Lesley Stahl — and ominously warns ‘much more to come’

Published

on

President Donald Trump has spent months belittling people for wearing masks during the COVID-19 pandemic.

His anti-mask attitude reportedly resulted in White House and campaign staff not wearing masks so as to avoid angering their boss.

And Trump has repeatedly attacked Joe Biden for wearing facial coverings -- even after the president was hospitalized for COVID-19.

But on Tuesday, Trump dramatically shifted his position and mask-shamed CBS "60 Minutes" reporter Lesley Stahl, posting video of her not wearing a mask while Trump was.

Trump included video of their interview in his tweet:
