A Utah high school has come under scrutiny after a racist photo of two students circulated online.

According to NBC News, two Hurricane high school students posed in blackface while another person dressed as a member of the KKK is seen grabbing their collar. The photo was posted on Snapchat with the caption “N*gga hunting 2019: I’m glad I could fill my tags this year.”

A Confederate flag is also hanging in the background of the photo. The third individual standing up was identified as a “non-student adult.”

Steve Dunham, the Washington County School District director of communications, condemned the photo.

“Words of disgust and sadness are insufficient to describe our feelings regarding the image that was brought to our attention the evening of May 16. This repulsive photo does not represent the concern, love, and care of Washington County School District,” Dunham wrote in a statement.

Dunham also confirmed that the photo was not taken on school grounds, but said that disciplinary actions would begin immediately. Also, Hurricane City Police Department said they were aware of the photo and that an investigation is underway. They also asked people not to share the photo as a way to stop the hateful message from spreading.

In her new gig as a Fox News contributor, former White House spokesperson Sarah Huckabee Sanders complained to host Sean Hannity that the "out-of-control" media makes "stuff up" about Donald Trump because they hate him for winning in 2016.

Sanders, who once told reporters that "countless" FBI agents had lost confidence in James Comey only to later tell investigators from special counsel Robert Mueller's office that she made it up, complained to the Fox host about the press being untrustworthy.

There will be ‘nightmarish’ consequences if ‘buffoon’ Trump starts a war with Iran: Rick Wilson

Published

on

Longtime Republican strategist Rick Wilson is warning about the severe dangers that will come from President Donald Trump getting America into a war with Iran.

In a scathing column written for the Daily Beast, Wilson warns that the president is "entirely unequipped to handle" any serious fight against Iran, which has been accused of launching strikes against Saudi oil production facilities.

"The mullahs know what they’re seeing when they behold Trump: a buffoon and a bluffer who just might be dumb enough to start a war with nightmarish consequences," Wilson writes. "Iran sees an American defense and intelligence apparatus run by toadies and temporary/acting/provisional/until-the-next-tweet nonentities whose tenures depend not on strategic insight or depth of knowledge, but on their ability to abase themselves before the Dear Leader."
