A Latina woman was accosted by a racist white woman while livestreaming her stroll along a California beach.
Elizabeth Lopez was streaming a video to her online fans while walking on Newport Beach’s boardwalk when a woman tried to grab her phone and hurled racist abuse at her, reported KABC-TV.
“She grabbed my hands trying to take my phone,” Lopez said. “She then told me I had no right to be in California, to go back to my country — things like that.”
The 28-year-old Lopez, who goes by Tarot Eliza on Facebook, was discussing meditation with her hundreds of followers when the woman confronted her.
The woman threatened to break Lopez’s arm and claims to be a police officer during the 14-minute video.
“I wasn’t doing anything wrong for her to do that to me,” Lopez said. “I thought she might have a mental problem, but there were other people there and she choose to go after me, so I don’t think she is completely mental.”
Lopez, who was scratched during the altercation, reported the incident to police, who tracked down and arrested the woman, who will likely face misdemeanor assault charges.
“She admitted to police what she said to me, and said she’d do it again,” Lopez said.
Ex-Trump adviser launches attack on Roger Stone’s jury forewoman — then dares her to sue him
On Saturday's edition of MSNBC's "Weekends," former Trump adviser Sam Nunberg went off on a rant attacking the jury forewoman in Roger Stone's trial, accusing her of being a liar and daring her to sue him.
"That trial, I had problems with it," said Nunberg. "Amy Berman Jackson, the judge, said things at the Manafort trial that made her completely conflicted to do this trial. There was an issue with the foreman. It came out she lied ... that's what Roger is appealing."
"So, Sam, you're just saying that a jury foreman and a judge were lying," said anchor Alex Witt. "Where is the proof on that?"
Trump’s ‘full-on racism’ will ‘go way uglier’ as election nears: Ex-White House official
On MSNBC Saturday, former White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci warned that President Donald Trump's toxicity on race relations will only worsen in the run-up to the election in November.
"You were in charge, for a brief time, but for communications from this White House, and it does seem that Trump is going there because that's where he thinks he has to go," said host Joy Reid. "92 percent of African-Americans, not surprisingly, disapprove of Donald Trump's handling of race. But even 57 percent of white Americans disapprove of his handling of race relations. There's a lot of white marchers out there, marching for Black Lives Matter. Has he miscalculated and misread white people, at least the majority of them, in this moment?"
Trump leveled in brutal Never-Trumper Republican ad accusing him of turning US into a ‘banana republic’
In an ad released by Republicans Voter Against Trump, the president was accused of turning the U.S. into a "banana republic" after he commuted the sentence of Roger Stone who was convicted of multiple felonies.
Coming just hours after the president handed Stone a get-out-of-jail-card that kept him from turning himself into jail later this month, the dissident Republican group posted their new ad to Twitter which accused Stone of "lying under to oath" to protect Trump, while also noting that Stone was looking at three years in jail.
The ad also notes that a "criminal who lies to protect Trump goes free."
