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.”

“They gave me records saying who the account belonged to,” accounts-payable manager Mary Hughes recalled in an interview. “And, sure enough, it was Woody’s.”

John Bolton just got put in his place: report

Published

on

National Security Adviser John Bolton has wanted a war with Iran since long before many Americans were even born. But according to The Daily Beast, he might be losing the internal battle to go to war.

After the Pentagon announced that they had "evidence" that Iran attacked an oil tanker in the Gulf of Oman, political analysts began to speculate it would be used as a justification for war with Iran. But apparently, Trump realized the Middle East saber-rattling doesn't play well in Middle America.
