Tasha Lee went to a Buffalo Wild Wings in Tomball, Texas, when a waitress asked to check her ID, she told FOX 26.

In response, the waitress had made a shockingly racist comment.

“Once Lee handed her ID over, the unnamed employee smiled and said, “Don’t take this racially, but sometimes the only way you can tell with Black people is from their eyes and their smiles, because it’s so dark.”

Lee was shocked.

The Restaurant manager tried to smooth over the situation, apologizing, comping her meal, and adding a $10 gift card. The waitress was fired.

Lee nevertheless wanted to highlight the incident to help educate people.

“I mean, to tell a Black person that the only way you can tell it’s them from their picture is from the whites of their eyes, and the whites of their teeth it’s absolutely unacceptable,” she told FOX26.

“While this was the first time this has happened to me so overtly, this is a normal experience for African-Americans everywhere.”

Trump then complained that the movement had gained "respectability" and bashed athletes for kneeling in silent protest during the national anthem.

Defense Department officials were confused by President Donald Trump's claim that the explosion in Beirut, Lebanon was "a bomb of some kind," according to a report from CNN.

Trump claimed on Tuesday that military officials had told him the explosion was not an accident.

"According to them – they would know better than I would – but they seem to think it was an attack," Trump told reporters at the White House.

"CNN has reportedly spoken to U.S. defense officials who said there is absolutely no indication that it was an attack and, if there was, efforts would have already been made to protect U.S. troops and assets in the region. That hasn't happened," reported Jamie Ross of The Daily Beast.

"It’s hard to imagine him doing so out of anything but the most dire necessity," Jong-Fast wrote. "All it took was 158,000 deaths and countless others whose health may never be the same."
