NEW YORK — A Queens substitute teacher whose “joke” about shooting his art class students landed him in handcuffs walked out of court a free man Thursday, with the charges against him dropped even before he saw a judge. Cops on Wednesday charged Alejandro Rocha, 52, with making a terroristic threat, after he told his middle school class, “If you won’t do as you’re told, I’m going to shoot you — and yes, I have a gun,” cops said. None of the kids complained, but Rocha let his supervisor know what he said, and that put him in police custody. His case was sealed — but Rocha told the New York Dail...
Former President Donald Trump has lost his final bid to block the House Select Committee investigating the January 6th Capitol riots from having access to key documents.
In an 8-1 ruling, the Supreme Court ruled that a former president could not invoke executive privilege on White House records if the current president did not also assert that privilege.
Biden smacks down Fox News' Peter Doocy when he asks why president is 'pulling the country so far to the left'
"It's a new year," said Doocy. "Why are you trying so hard in your first year to pull the country so far to the left?"
"Well, I'm not," said Biden. "I don't know what you consider to be too far to the left, if, in fact, we're talking about making sure we have the money for COVID, making sure we have the money to put together a bipartisan infrastructure, making sure we are able to provide for those things that, in fact, significantly reduce the burden on working-class people and make them have to continue to work hard. I don't know how that is pointed to the left."
"If you may recall, you guys have been trying to convince me that I am Bernie Sanders," added Biden. "I'm not. I like him, but I'm not Bernie Sanders. I'm not a socialist. I'm a mainstream Democrat, and I have been. Mainstream Democrats — if you notice, the 48 of the 50 Democrats supported me in the Senate on virtually everything I asked."
'I think his meds are wearing off': Trump mocked after falsely accusing Biden of taking only 'softball' questions
Former president Donald Trump issued a statement Wednesday afternoon accusing President Joe Biden of taking only "softball questions" during a White House news conference.
“How come Biden picks a reporter off a list, in all cases softball questions, and then reads the answer?" Trump said in the statement from his Save America PAC. "I would never have been allowed to get away with that, nor would I have to!”
Trump's statement was issued midway through the news conference. Although Biden began by taking questions from pre-selected reporters, he later opened it up to everyone in the room, including calling on reporters from conservative outlets Newsmax and Fox News.
"By the time the statement hit, Biden had made it outdated," CNN senior reporter Edward-Isaac Dovere noted. "Also important: none of the other questions Biden took from the outlets which were not among the deliberately antagonistic could credibly be called 'softball questions,' as he was hammered on topics like inflation, COVID restrictions, gov't competency, more."
Here's how Twitter reacted to Trump's statement.
Pay attention. He\u2019s now opened it up and asked the reporters how long they want to go on. Calm. Collected. No real drama. Nice change. You may/may not like the answers but he\u2019s a pro.
