A North Carolina woman known for her racist rants that were captured on video is being accused of attacking a 14-year-old and ripping the hijab off another woman, the Citizen Times reports.

Rachel Dawn Ruit first received notoriety when she was caught on video yelling racial slurs and threatening people in downtown Asheville. But on July 4, her threats turned physical when she ripped off the hijab from a woman and attacked the 14-year-old, who is Black.

Ernesta Carter witnessed Ruit attack the girl after saying she needed to be “put down” and if she fought back “she would be raped.” Ruit then grabbed the girl by the groin, Carter said. When Carter started running towards the altercation, that’s when Ruit targeted Nahlah Karimah who was the woman wearing the hijab.

Carter then saw Ruit jump on top of the girl, “clawing and biting her,” grabbing the girl’s necklace and choking her.

“When I tried to pull her off the black child, other racists jumped in” and put the woman wearing the hijab in a chokehold. At one point, someone pulled out a can of pepper spray.

Ruit was later arrested at a hospital where she, Karimah, and the girl were being treated. Ruit was charged with simple assault, disorderly conduct and second-degree trespass. She was released on $1,000 bail.

Patti Davis said her father, like any other powerful man, remained a son who longed for his father's approval and lessons in manhood, and she describes in a new column for The Daily Beast how the presidents she's known personally were shaped by their paternal relationships.

"My father was the son of an alcoholic, whose drinking binges often left the family without money to pay bills," Davis wrote. "I have long felt that to understand Ronald Reagan, you have to understand that everything he was and did bounced off the fact that he was the child of an alcoholic. When he became a successful actor, he hired his father to answer his fan mail, wanting to give his father something to occupy himself with so that hopefully he wouldn’t drink. It worked for a while, until it didn’t."

A pair of Arizona residents who voted for President Donald Trump in 2016 are now imploring their friends to not make the same mistake they did when they refused to take the coronavirus pandemic seriously.

In an interview with CNN, Debi and Michael Patterson told reporter Omar Jimenez that they laughed off public health recommendations about protecting themselves against the disease.

"It was almost like a joke in our group of friends," Debi Patterson explained.

"Did you wear a mask?" Jimenez asked.

"Nope," she replied.

"Did you hang out with your friends as normal?" he asked, to which she nodded her head.
