Manson M. Bryant got more than he expected on March 19 after delivering a profanity-laced courtroom rant in which he called the judge sentencing him for a variety crimes a “racist.” Specifically, he got an additional six years added to his sentence.
Bryant, who was found guilty of aggravated burglary, aggravated robbery, kidnapping, abduction, having weapons under disability and carrying concealed weapons, wasn’t pleased with his 22-year sentence and unloaded on the judge.
“F*ck your courtroom race sh*t, b*tch,” Bryant said. “You’re racist as f*ck! You’re racist as f*ck!”
Judge Eugene A. Lucci was equally unimpressed with the defendant.
“Actually, you know what?” Lucci responded, as Bryant’s tirade continued. “When I said you had a certain amount remorse? I was mistaken.”
“The court’s determined the maximum amount is needed,” Lucci continued as Bryant screamed “let me out! Let me out!” and pounded his fists on the jury box.
After Bryant was removed, Lucci continued to say he had planned to mitigate the sentence due to the defendant’s contrition, but the outburst had changed his mind.
Fox News host: Teachers practicing COVID safety are like ‘George Wallace standing in the school door’
Fox News host Mark Levin on Sunday accused teachers who want COVID-19 safety measures of re-enacting Jim Crow-era segregation rules.
Levin made the remarks during a rant about President Donald Trump's executive action on COVID-19 financial relief.
"Democrat governors have shut down this economy from sea to shining sea," Levin opined. "And they like it both ways, the Democrats. They want to lock up everybody like we're lamb in cages and then they want to complain about the economic consequences."
"And then they say, this president, look what he's doing," he continued. "Let me tell you, payback is a bitch. You remember Obama with his phone and his pen. Well, apparently he left his phone and his pen and President Trump picked it up."
Mnuchin threatens to make taxpayers pay back COVID money unless Trump is reelected
Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin suggested on Sunday that Americans will have to pay the government back for any payroll tax reduction unless President Donald Trump is reelected.
In an interview on FOX, host Chris Wallace noted that the president's latest executive action on COVID-19 financial relief is "not a tax cut."
"It's a payroll tax suspension," Wallace explained. "Isn't there a danger that a lot of businesses won't pass these saving through to workers because they're going to hold on to the money because at some point, according to this executive action by the end of the year, those payroll taxes are going to be have to be paid anyway?"
‘We need a reality check here’: CNN’s Bash cuts off Kudlow’s rambling spin on Trump’s unemployment plans
An alternately amused and baffled Dana Bash was forced to cut off Donald Trump economic adviser Larry Kudlow on CNN Sunday morning as he attempted to spin the president's plans to help out the unemployed with income supplements, changing his numbers from $400 to $800 to $1,200 all within three to four sentences.
Pressed about the president's executive order calling for a $400 supplement -- with $100 coming from the states at Trump's demand -- the State of the Union fill-in host tried to cut through Kudlow's veering from dollar amount to dollar amount to get a clearer understanding of what the president is proposing.
