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.
‘It is a stain on our country’: Elizabeth Warren joins protest outside child detention facility in Florida
Sen. Elizabeth Warren, one of the frontrunners for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination, joined a protest in front of a migrant detention center Wednesday morning—hours before she was expected to join nine other members of her party for the first primary debate.
"There are a lot of different ways that we get in the fight," Warren said to supporters on social media. "And one of them is that you show up."
There are a lot of different ways that we get in the fight. And one of them is that you show up. I'm at the Homestead detention center today and I hope you'll be watching. https://t.co/vzXqUlaiIM
‘None of your business!’ Trump lashes out when reporter asks him about meeting with Putin
While leaving for his trip to Japan on Wednesday, President Donald Trump stopped to speak with the press on the South Lawn of the White House, where one reporter asked a question that clearly struck a nerve.
Sarah Westwood, a reporter for CNN, asked Trump whether he planned on telling Russian President Vladimir Putin at their upcoming meeting not to interfere in the 2016 election.
“I’ll have a very good conversation with him,” Trump said. Then, with venom in his voice and facial expression, he added: “What I say to him is none of your business!”
Trump frequently lashes out at reporters, but his insults and broadsides tend to seem performative — it’s clear he enjoys lambasting reporters when he gets the chance. But this question really appeared to get under Trump’s skin, eliciting an outburst that showed how sensitive he is about the issue and prompting him to quickly move on to another question. Before this question, he had said of former Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation and the continuing probes driven by congressional Democrats, “The Mueller thing never stops! … At what point does it end?”
Bill Gates and Jeff Bezos’ Seattle suburb is running out of money thanks to lax taxation
The government of one of America's richest zip codes may soon run out of money to keep the lights on.
CNBC reports that the small town of Medina, Washington will have a budget referendum in November to raise taxes and prevent a budget shortfall in the coming fiscal year.
The idea of Medina being cash-strapped seems counter-intuitive given that both Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates and Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos have houses there. What's more, Medina has an average home value of $2.77 million and a median household income of around $186,000.
