The always outrageous Mike Tyson recently revealed that he wanted to beat up a Silverback Gorilla he saw in a zoo in 1986. No, a real gorilla!

The former heavyweight boxing champion said he even tried to pay a zookeeper $10,000 to let him fight the gorilla.

The boxer said that he was incensed when he thought he saw the gorilla “bullying” other animals in the zoo enclosure.

“When we got to the gorilla cage there was one big silverback gorilla there just bullying all the other gorillas,” Tyson said. “They were so powerful, but their eyes were like an innocent infant,” he added.

“I offered the attendant $10,000 to open the cage and let me smash that silverback’s snotbox! He declined,” Tyson added.

Lately, the controversial 52-year-old fighter has been spending his days running a pot business in California.

A year ago, Tyson broke ground on a 40-acre pot farm in California City, California, with plans to grow and sell legal marijuana.

The appeal of legal pot seems logical for Tyson. The boxer has had problems with marijuana before. In 2000 he was fined $200,000 by boxing authorities for testing positive for pot and in his memoirs, he mentioned that he often used tricks to get around testing requirements. He also said he was using pot during his 2007 arrest for possession of cocaine.

Democrats Already Turning to NEW ‘Russia’ Conspiracy

You knew they would have something up their sleeves.

Robert Mueller

With the end of Mueller’s so-called “Russia” investigation turning up nothing and leading to no serious crimes or indictments, the Democrats who have daily pushed the “Russia collusion” lie are already pivoting to a new conspiracy maintaining that Mueller is meaningless or is even part of the cover up! For over two years, now, the Democrats have told us that Special Counsel Robert Mueller is an “honorable” man who is above reproach. But now that it looks like he is not indicting the president, his sons, or anyone in Trump’s inner circle, the Democrats are starting to throw their “honorable man” under the bus and blaming him for being part of a wide-ranging “conspiracy.” After taking several days off Twitter, President Trump jumped back on the social media platform Sunday to show that he is in fine spirits and tweeting that it is a “great day.” https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1109787378242240514 But the joyous attitude is not shared by the dour Democrats whose Mueller god has failed them. House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler (D, NY), for instance, is now saying that Mueller’s investigation doesn’t mean a thing. Despite telling us all for two years that Mueller’s investigation was the key to Trump’s downfall, Nadler is now saying the investigation doesn’t mean anything because despite Mueller’s finding of no collusion, “We know there was collusion.” Nadler is sort of like Chicken Little crying the sky is falling despite the proof all around him that it isn’t. Democratic California Rep. Adam Schiff, chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, also jumped in on Sunday to insist that the evidence doesn’t matter because “we just know” things. Schiff claimed he trusted Mueller, but that his investigation is essentially meaningless. Schiff also claimed that Mueller hamstrung himself by not interviewing the president.  But there is a more…

Dems Hold Emergency Call On Mueller Report, Plot Subpoenas, & REFUSE Classified Briefings

Just because Mueller didn’t find anything doesn’t mean Dems are done looking.

Special Counsel Robert Mueller didn’t find any connection between the 2016 Trump campaign and Russia. After two long years of searching, Mueller and team confirmed what conservatives had known from the start. And yet, that doesn’t mean Congressional Democrats are done digging for dirt. You can expect the “Russia collusion” narrative to live on as long as President Trump remains commander-in-chief – and that could be for a while longer. Now, Dems are panicking – and they are looking to make big moves. From Daily Wire: Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) called an emergency conference call of Democratic leadership Saturday afternoon to discuss how to proceed amid news that Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report on collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian officials, may not result in a presidential indictment. “Today, we are having an emergency Caucus conference call at 3:00 p.m. E.T. to discuss the transmittal of the Mueller report to the Department of Justice (DOJ),” Pelosi wrote in a letter to colleagues issued Saturday morning, “While we do not know the substance of the report, we will have the relevant Committees of jurisdiction on the call today to update Members on where we go from here.” […] Pelosi also made clear, in her letter ahead of the call, that Democrats do not intend to let the issue of Russian collusion go, even if Mueller’s report — as suspected — shows no evidence of actual collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian officials to impact the outcome of the 2016 Presidential election. Fox News host Chris Wallace isn’t exactly 100% pro-Trump. There are times he’s in 45’s corner, and there are times he’s not. It is what it is. At the very least, Fox News can definitively say they are “fair and balanced” in that they provide…
