Kaitlin Bennett is a right-wing pro-gun, pro-Trump activist who first came to fame when her college graduation photos showing her sporting an assault rifle went viral. Now she’s going viral again, but this time it’s due to her less-than-persuasive interview skills.
Bennett conducts interviews for Liberty Hangout, a self-described “libertarian media outlet” that publishes weekly videos online. Last year, she took her mic and InfoWars camera crew to an LGBT+ Pride event in Des Moines and an interview she conducted with a police officer is getting some renewed attention.
Some Pride attendees apparently complained about Bennett, prompting the officer to tell her and her camera crew to leave people alone. Bennett protested, but it was the cop’s straightforward and logical demeanor that’s making the clip so popular.
“You clearly don’t like what they’re up to,” the officer sternly said, after Bennett protested the complaints.
“I don’t care what they’re up to,” Bennett shot back.
“Then go away,” the officer replied, “There’s no reason to interview anyone.”
Bennett, who is famous for doing ‘gotcha’ interviews with college kids about various aspects of the liberal agenda, accused the cop of making “accusations” when he’s supposed to be standing up for “the truth.”
“I’m not making any accusations other than what I believe is taking place here,” the cop said.

Experts: Trump either a ‘very bad businessman or a tax cheat — probably both’
Accounting experts were astonished by the revelations turned up in the New York Times' blockbuster report on President Donald Trump's tax returns.
The report showed the president was "abusing the tax system" by paying no income taxes in 10 of the 15 years before he entered the White House, and paid only $750 in his first two years in office, according to experts who spoke to The Guardian.
“This shows that Trump is either a very bad businessman or a tax cheat who is not respecting the tax system that he is asking everyone else to pay," said Alex Cobham, the chief executive of the Tax Justice Network. "Probably both are true.”
Georgia judge strikes down attempt to purge 14K voters in largely Black county
A Georgia judge on Monday halted an attempt to purge 14,000 voters from a county with a large Black population.
The Atlanta Journal Constitution reported that Fulton County Superior Court Jane Barwick dismissed a request from citizens that the county be forced to hold hearings on the status of 14,000 voters.
According to attorney Ray Smith, who represents the group of citizens, many of the voters in the county do not live at the address where they are registered. Smith claimed to have boxes of affidavits from registered voters.
Trump’s tax rhetoric comes back to haunt him after NYT’s bombshell report: analysis
In an analysis for the Washington Post this Monday, Aaron Blake writes that while the New York Times' bombshell report on President Trump's tax history answers a lot of questions, it's still less than surprising. After all, Trump once said during a previous presidential debate that paying low income taxes makes him a "smart" businessman.
Trump has made similar comments on other occasions. "Trump has at times tried to argue that however much he might exploit the tax system, it merely shows how broken the system is," Blake writes. "Whether that’s an argument voters buy after the Times’s report shows just how much Trump has sought to exploit that system, we’ll have to see."
