Trump attacks NASCAR for banning Confederate flag — and demands Bubba Wallace apologize for supposed noose ‘hoax’

Published

President Donald Trump on Monday attacked NASCAR for banning displays of Confederate flags on its vehicles, and then demanded that Black NASCAR driver Bubba Wallace apologize for being upset about what appeared to be a noose placed in his garage.

“Has Bubba Wallace apologized to all of those great NASCAR drivers & officials who came to his aid, stood by his side, & were willing to sacrifice everything for him, only to find out that the whole thing was just another HOAX?” the president wrote on Twitter. “That & Flag decision has caused lowest ratings EVER!”

The FBI last month determined that the noose found in Wallace’s garage was actually a garage door pull that was not placed there as part of a deliberate attempt at racial intimidation against Wallace.

However, NASCAR subsequently released a photo of the rope that showed that it did appear to be tied as a noose, as seen below.

Additionally, NASCAR president Steve Phelps said that after his team conducted a “thorough sweep of all 29 tracks where they race, and 1684 garage stalls, they found only 11 total ropes that had a pulldown rope tied in a knot, and just one noose: The one in Bubba Wallace’s garage.”

On Monday, when asked about mail-in voting by OANN at his coronavirus briefing, President Donald Trump claimed we might have to "re-run" some of the New York congressional races, and proceeded to tell a litany of meritless lies about the supposed problems of mail-in ballots.

"You can have double-voting ... they have no clue what's going on, they've lost ballots, there's fraudulent ballots," said Trump.

He once again said "absentee ballots are great ... universal mail-in ballots are the problem." He added, baselessly, "you can have two ballots, you can harvest ballots, it's harvesting," and complained that you might have to "wait seven days" to know who won the election and it's "messed up." And he said he would be suing the state of Nevada to stop an expansion of mail-in voting.

Trump explodes over ‘Democrat stuff’ when asked about Manhattan prosecutors investigating his taxes

Published

At Monday's White House coronavirus briefing, President Donald Trump was asked for comment about the new filings from New York prosecutors suggesting the subpoena for his tax returns is part of a criminal investigation into his businesses. Trump responded by raging that it was "a continuation of the Democrat stuff" and a "witch hunt."

"This is a continuation of the worst witch hunt in American history," said Trump. "Didn't work out for Congress, didn't work out for Mueller, didn't work out for anybody, so what they're doing is they send people all over the country, I guess. But it's really a terrible thing they do. It's a terrible thing. The witch hunt has gone on long enough."
