Missouri woman offers a bizarre excuse after viral video shows her waving Confederate flag and praising the KKK

Published

Earlier in the week, a video from a Black Lives Matter protest in Branson, Missouri went viral. It showed a woman in a MAGA hat waving a Confederate flag at demonstrators, shouting “KKK belief!” and “I’ll teach my grandkids to hate you!”

On Thursday, the Huffington Post reported that the woman in the video, Kim Jenkins, is apologizing — and trying to claim that wasn’t what she’s really like.

First of all, she claimed that she had “blacked out” during the rally and doesn’t remember what she said — and when reminded of what she had said, she disavowed it.

“I wasn’t saying I’m KKK or for the KKK,” she said to Ozarks First. “I was mocking them because I don’t like being called a racist.” She added that she has lost her job over the footage and “I didn’t understand that the Confederate flag meant hate. I don’t understand the whole history of the Confederate flag, but I’m learning.”

The demonstrations had taken place in front of Dixie Outfitters, a store owned by a couple who admit to being former supporters of the KKK.

Trump campaign dispatches Pence to shore up Mormon support — after harsh criticism from Mitt Romney and Jeff Flake: report

Published

The president's 2020 election campaign continues to play defense in Arizona, a once reliably-Republican state.

"President Donald Trump's reelection campaign is looking to shore up support among a specific population of Arizonans: members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints," the Arizona Republica reported Monday. "Vice President Mike Pence is coming to Mesa Tuesday to help launch a 'Latter-day Saints for Trump' coalition in what appears to be a late-in-the-game play to win over LDS voters, who tend to vote Republican but hold values that clash with some of the president's."

Here’s how Trump created a ‘significant threat’ to his re-election by failing on coronavirus stimulus

Published

Politico on Monday reported on how Donald Trump may have imperiled his 2020 presidential campaign by failing to reach a deal with Congress on the next round of stimulus.
