Democrat Issues Threat Of ‘Serious Altercation’ With Trump Jr. Over Coronavirus Claim

Published

A House Democrat once again put that infamous left-wing tolerance on full display by issuing a threat of a “serious altercation” with President Trump’s son, Donald Jr., over his claim that Democrats are hoping the coronavirus outbreak will damage the president politically.

Rep. John Garamendi, California, made an appearance on MSNBC Friday morning where he chatted about the government’s response to the virus and what they plan to do in order to contain it and preventing it from spreading across the country.

Here’s more on this from The Washington Examiner:

The anchor, Hallie Jackson, asked him for his thoughts on Trump’s eldest son saying the Democratic Party hopes coronavirus “comes here to kill millions of people so it can end the president’s streak of winning.”

“He shouldn’t be near me when he says that,” the California congressman responded, “There would be a serious altercation.”

“That’s just totally outrageous. I can assure you there’s not a Democrat or Republican in Congress that wants anybody to be sick,” he added, “What we are concerned about is the administration’s response to this illness. We’ve known since December that there was an epidemic in China … Don Jr. better not get any place close to me. It would not be a healthy situation.”

When Garamendi’s office was contacted by media officials for a comment about the statement, there was no immediate response. The Secret Service also opted not to reply.

The comment that Garamendi was referring to was one that Trump Jr. delivered during an appearance on Fox & Friends earlier that morning.

“The playbook is old at this point, but for them to try to take a pandemic and seemingly hope that it comes here, and kills millions of people so that they could end Donald Trump’s streak of winning is a new level of sickness,” Trump Jr. said.

“There’s no question that the threat of coronavirus can destabilize the market but the fact that the Democrats are seemingly hoping for this to happen, just like you’ve seen them over the last year, pray for a disaster to happen in the economy, meaning people lose their Jobs, their mortgages, their livelihoods, so that they can own Trump somehow, is absolutely insane,” he added.

Is it really so far-fetched to think there are some radical Democrats out there who would love to see the coronavirus outbreak have a negative impact on the president? Seems fairly logical to assume some of these people are indeed thinking just that.

After all, the left has proven time and again that they hate the president more than they love America.

Amazon Rolls Out Creepy ‘Pay By Palm’ Hardware at Whole Foods

Is this one of the harbingers of a cashless society?

Throughout much of modern history, Americans and their cash were two separate things.  One was a human being, breathing and walking about, earning money.  The money was an inanimate commodity of varying value that we used to keep the organism alive, fat, and happy. But in the future, it seems as though we may find ourselves intrinsically, and anatomically indistinguishable from our bank account.  In fact, it appears as though Amazon is banking on it. Amazon.com Inc (AMZN.O) said it is rolling out biometric technology at its Whole Foods stores around Seattle starting on Wednesday, letting shoppers pay for items with a scan of their palm. The move shows how Amazon is bringing some of the technology already in use at its namesake brick-and-mortar Go and Books stores to the grocery chain it acquired in 2017. The system, called Amazon One, lets customers associate a credit card with their palm print. It offers a contact-less alternative to cash and card payments, Amazon said. Of course, the move is being regarded as a terrifying leap into Orwellian territory by privacy experts, as it appears to push us ever closer to a cashless society where hackers and power failures could doom us all to poverty in the blink of an eye.

Fraternal Order of Police Responds to LeBron James’ Tweet Fiasco

And they were NOT happy.

The politicization of American sports has been ongoing for some time, perhaps decades, but the most recent acceleration of this melding has come thanks to the power of social media and the blurring of the line between celebrity and athlete. At the forefront of this movement has been the NBA, and, more specifically, superstar LeBron James. This week, James came under fire for a tweet in which he referenced the Derek Chauvin trial’s guilty verdicts, with a photo of another officer who was involved in the shooting of a young black girl and text stating “you’re next”. The tweet was seen as a threat by many, including the Fraternal Order of Police who responded harshly. On Wednesday, James tweeted a photo of the officer involved in the shooting with a caption reading “YOU’RE NEXT #ACCOUNTABILITY.” The tweet has since been deleted. James was reacting to the deadly police shooting of 16-year-old Ma’Khia Bryant. Hours later, the National Fraternal Order of Police tweeted a photo of James’ original tweet, saying: “[email protected], with his vast resources & influence, should educate himself and, frankly, has a responsibility to do so, on the facts before weighing in. This is disgraceful & extremely reckless. The officer saved a young girl’s life. No amount of gaslighting will change that fact.” James attempted to walk back the tweet after deleting it, by issuing an explanation that garnered only a lukewarm response online.
