As Denver voters (the few who voted!) were putting Mayor Michael B Hancock and another pro-development mayoral candidate, Jamie Giellis, into a June 4 runoff on Tuesday, associate solitary reporter Susanna Sherman spotted the NRA’s bigtime gunslinger, Wayne LaPierre, at the STEM School in Highlands Ranch, south of Denver, congratulating the two shooters, who were in court yesterday in Douglas County.
“We need many, many more defenders of freedom like you, in America!” LaPierre told the shooters, one of whom is a juvenile.
One of the students at the charter school, Kendrick Castillo, 18, died while lunging at the shooters. Eight other students were injured in the shooting, but if brave Kendrick had not lunged at the shooter, many more students would have been kllled.
Elsewhere, Donald Trump and his “Acting” Chief of Staff, former Tea Party Congressman Mick Mulvaney, from the Palmetto State, put the word out to RNC Chair Ronna Romney McDaniel to primary Sen. Richard Burr (R-Tarheel State) because he and Ranking Intel Committee Member Mark Warner (D-the Sic Semper Tyrannis State — the Commonwealth of Virginia) have subpoenaed Trump Jr.
Burr and Warner want to ask Trump Jr. about his father’s extensive business dealings with Vladimir Putin, and about the infamous Trump Tower meeting in June 2016 with Putin’s lawyer, Ната́лья Влади́мировна Весельни́цкая (Nataliya Veselnitskaya), who was supposed to give Trump Jr “dirt” on Hillary Clinton — only no “dirt” (other than Hillary’s baggage, that everybody in the world already knew about) ever came out.
Trump Sr continues to yell (aided infamously by Mitch McConnell) that he was “totally exonerated” by Mueller-Barr, so why would a Republican Senate Committee Chairman have the courage of his convictions to go against Trump Sr by subpoenaing Junior?
The answer is simple. Burr, North Carolina’s senior senator, is not seeking re-election in 2022.
Romney McDaniel, the niece of the Beehive State’s junior senator, is well known for her total devotion to Trump and for her prowess in fundraising. Fortunately, Mitt and Trump Sr often disagree.
