Trump can’t tell the difference between black leaders Cory Booker and Andrew Gillum — mixes them up during Texas speech

Published

on

There were many awkward moments during the Texas Trump rally for Ted Cruz, but one moment was an epic blunder.

During President Donald Trump’s attack on the Democratic Party, he started in attacking a mayor running for governor in Florida.

“The mayor who did one of the worst jobs of any mayor other than the guy running for governor in Florida. He was a horrible mayor. Cory Booker. He destroyed what he did,” Trump said.

Booker was actually the mayor of Newark, New Jersey and Andrew Gillum is the mayor in Florida who is running for governor. Both men are African American though they look nothing alike and live in completely different states. Booker is now a Senator and Gillum is still the mayor while running for Governor. Still, Trump can’t seem to get them straight.

In February, 1999, John William King – who was executed in Huntsville, Texas on April 24, 2019 –became the first white man in modern Texas history to be sentenced to death for killing a black person.  How that black person, James Byrd, Jr., died was no mystery. Three self-proclaimed white supremacists had drawn up a plan to start a race war while they were in prison. These men chained Byrd to the back of their pickup truck and dragged him for a mile and half until his head and right arm were torn from his body by a concrete culvert on Huff Creek Road in Jasper County.

Have we become too paranoid about mass shootings?

Published

on

Many Americans worry about when – not if – another mass shooting will occur, and a Gallup poll from September found that nearly half of Americans fear being a victim of one of these attacks.

After the film “Joker” was released, you could see these fears play out.

Many announced they wouldn’t see it in theaters. The film’s deranged main character, they said, would inspire people like the Aurora shooter, who, in 2012, killed 12 people and wounded 70 others during a screening of “Dark Knight Rises.”
