Shocking video purported to be taken in Tallahassee, Florida shows a man drawing a gun on Black Lives Matter protesters.

“Here’s a video of #TrumpViolence in Tallahassee as a psycho enters our protest and hits my GIRLFRIEND – he gets the hands put to him and pulls a gun like he didn’t expect it,” Twitter account @skidpapi posted.

In the video, the man can be seen pointing a handgun at a protester on his knees, with both hands above his head.

Two police quickly responded and disarmed the man.

No one can believe this GOP senator’s embarrassing ad is real

Published

Republican Sen. Kelly Loeffler of Georgia is in a tough race to keep her seat, and at least so far, it seems she’s not sending her best.

Her latest ad baffled many observers, prompting some to genuinely question whether the clip was real. It’s production quality and corniness are so over the top and unprofessional, it’s hard to believe it’s from a sitting senator.

Husted seemed to think he could convince them to wear face masks — which have become demonized on the right — just because they were branded with Trump logos.

Experts agree masks are one of the most effective ways to reduce the spread of the respiratory virus, and the fact that this advice has become anathema to large swaths of the country — primarily supporters of the president — is extremely dangerous on its own terms and disturbing for what it says about our politics.
