WATCH: Crazy video of a North Carolina politician attempting to pull rank on a cop during corn dog incident

Published

on

Authorities in South Carolina on Tuesday released body camera footage of a North Carolina politician shouting at a police officer.

The video showed a Concord, North Carolina politician shouting at a police officer in South Carolina — who remained remarkably calm during the interaction.

“I am the f*cking mayor pro tem of the city of Concord,” King shouted.

“I don’t care,” the officer replied.

But King continued in the stop, which somehow involved a corn dog.

“You are f*cking out of line, I have done nothing to you and I have just gotten a corn dog and you can kiss my a**,” King said.

The officer replied, “I don’t want to do that.”

The release of the video came one day after King resigned as mayor pro tem but kept his seat on the city council.

“I did not represent this body well at all by my actions and I’m very sorry for my mistake,” King said in a Facebook post. “I just wanted to again hope that you’ll accept my apology. I think somebody else would probably better serve as mayor pro tem at this point so that we can take care of this distraction and move onward and upward.”

"Rudy, as you know, has been one of the great crime fighters of the last 50 years," Trump said of his lawyer, who is reportedly under federal investigation for breaking the law.

"And, he did get back from Europe just recently and I know -- he has not told me what he found, but I think he wants to go before Congress and say, and also to the attorney general and the Department of Justice," Trump said.

GOP governors are refusing to do Trump’s bidding and ducking him on the campaign trail: report

Published

On Saturday, Maggie Haberman of The New York Times profiled how President Donald Trump is having less luck whipping Republican governors into line than Republican senators, including governors who arguably owe their election to his support.

"In Florida, Mr. Trump’s aides helped save the flailing candidacy of Ron DeSantis in the 2018 Republican primary, and then the general election," wrote Haberman. "Also last year, in Georgia, Mr. Trump helped pull Brian Kemp over the finish line in both the primary and the general election. In both cases, Mr. Trump’s advisers implored him to stay out of the primaries, and he agreed to — only to surprise his aides by jumping in to support Mr. DeSantis and Mr. Kemp."

Courts have avoided refereeing between Congress and the president — Trump may change all that

Published

President Donald Trump’s refusal to hand over records to Congress and allow executive branch employees to provide information and testimony to Congress during the impeachment battle is the strongest test yet of legal principles that over the past 200 years have not yet been fully defined by U.S. courts.

It’s not the first test: Struggles over power among the political branches predate our Constitution. The framers chose not to, and probably could not, fully resolve them.
