WATCH: GOP congressman hides in an elevator as veterans try to confront him about his support for Trump

Published

on

On Thursday, Common Defense, an activist group of combat veterans, followed Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) through a hallway and demanded to know why he isn’t doing something about President Donald Trump’s lawless conduct.

Crenshaw — himself a former Navy SEAL — tried to shoo them away, and eventually ducked into an elevator to get away from them.

“How can you let a criminal like Donald Trump run roughshod over our democracy and shred everything that you and I fought for?” demanded one of the protesters on a video uploaded by the group. “Like c’mon man. Like how can you just sit there idly by and not do your duty? We need your leadership right now. You cannot be complicit in this man’s crimes. It is immoral. It’s laid out clearly in the Mueller report.”

“I know you’re going to make a video of this,” said Crenshaw, trying to wave him away.

“You are not stepping up to the plate,” the veteran continued. “We need your leadership.”

“As a fellow wounded veteran, how could you let him take us into another war?” cut in a second protester.

“What war is he taking us into?” Crenshaw said dismissively.

“Iran!” said the protester.

“How are you going to let him just cozy up to dictators?” demanded the first veteran. “How are you gonna just let him lock kids in cages? Like c’mon dude!”

“Calm down,” said Crenshaw.

“Are you kidding me?” the man continued. “You need to get your courage back, c’mon.”

“Courage? You’re going to talk to me about courage?” said Crenshaw.

“Yes, we are talking to you about courage,” said another protester. “As fellow combat veterans.”

“I fought in Iraq. He fought in Afghanistan,” said the first protester as Crenshaw came to the elevator bank and ducked inside. “We need you, we are asking you for your leadership, we’re not trying to attack you. Read the Mueller report! There are ten impeachable obstruction offenses.”

WATCH: Franklin Graham tells Jeanine Pirro coronavirus pandemic is because of people sinning

Published

on

Franklin Graham blamed sinners for the COVID-19 coronavirus epidemic during a Saturday night appearance on Fox News.

Host Jeanine Pirro noted the growing death toll and wondered how God could let that happen.

"Well, I don't think it's God's plan for this to happen," Graham said.

"It's because of the sin that's in the world, judge," he argued.

"Man has turned his back on God, we have sinned against him, and we need to ask for God's forgiveness and that's what Easter's all about," he continued.

"This pandemic, this is the result of a fallen world that has turned its back on God," he added.

Drought causing water shortage amid coronavirus crisis in Chile

Published

on

With historically low river flows and reservoirs running dry due to drought, people in central Chile have found themselves particularly vulnerable to the coronavirus pandemic.

Years of resource exploitation and lax legislation have allowed most reservoirs in that part of the country to run dry.

"There are now 400,000 families, nearly 1.5 million people approximately, whose supply of 50 liters of water a day depends on tankers," Rodrigo Mundaca, spokesman for the Movement for the Defense of Water, the Earth and the Protection of the Environment, told AFP.

One of the main pieces of advice to protect people against coronavirus is to wash your hands regularly.

As confirmed COVID-19 cases in the United States surpassed 300,000 with more than 8,300 deaths, there was some encouraging news in Italy and Spain.

Europe continues to bear the brunt of the epidemic, however, accounting for over 45,000 of the worldwide deaths, and Britain reported a new daily high in fatalities.

There are now more than 1.17 million confirmed coronavirus cases around the world and there have been 63,437 deaths since the virus emerged in China late last year.
