Ex-Trump cabinet member Zinke ordered US Park Police to his home to chase car away in a parking squabble: report

President Donald Trump’s former Secretary of the Interior, Ryan Zinke, stepped down in December.

But reporters are still sussing out all of the possible misdeeds by the “deeply strange” man who pretended to be a geologist.

The latest involved a squabble with neighbors that erupted when Zinke invited friends over to drink beer, grill meat and watch a football game between the Tennessee Titans and Dallas Cowboys.

As the Washington Post reports, Zinke was a “man on the edge” before his ouster and called U.S. Park Police about a minor disagreement over parking outside during his cookout.

The police force is part of the Interior Department, meaning it was under Zinke’s direction.

During the cookout, one of Zinke’s friends told him a black SUV idling outside was a “possible reporter.”

"The former vice president has effectively been his party’s leader since his last challenger in the Democratic primary, Bernie Sanders, ended his campaign in April. But Biden pulled together the 1,991 delegates needed to become the nominee after seven states and the District of Columbia held presidential primaries Tuesday."

On Friday, President Donald Trump retweeted a video from right-wing commentator Glenn Beck, which appeared to question the wisdom of calling George Floyd a "hero" — and concurring with Black GOP commentator Candace Owens, who said it "sickens me" he is being "held up as a martyr."
