TERRELL: Trump ‘did not order those individuals to go down there and destroy the Capitol’

“All President Trump did, and he has the First Amendment right, you can shake your head all you want, is to express his disappointment.”

In a heated discussion with Geraldo Rivera on Bill Hemmer Reports, Leo Terrell discussed the violence that took place at the Capitol on Wednesday, urging that President Trump is not to blame.

“How dare you, Geraldo? I mean, that sounds like democratic talking points. Bill, I heard you talk to Debbie Dingell. All Donald Trump said yesterday was ‘go down to the Capitol building,’” he said. “And then you heard Debbie Dingell talking about….I listened to the democratic Kool-Aid. You heard Joe Biden today, Muriel Bowser. They are using this for democratic talking points,” he added. 

“All President Trump did, and he has the First Amendment right, you can shake your head all you want, is to express his disappointment. He did not order those individuals to go down there and destroy the Capitol,” he said. 

While law enforcement agencies dive into an investigation, Terrell urged that the criminals involved should indeed be prosecuted.  

“There were criminals who invaded the Capitol building and they should be prosecuted,” he said, “but the democrats sat on their hands during the summer when rioters destroyed democratic cities. In Seattle, the summer of love.”

Terrell blasted Joe Biden for “playing the race card” during his national address Thursday. 

“And one last point. For Joe Biden to play the race card today saying that there would have been a different treatment for black protestors,” he said. “Those are criminals. Criminals should be treated one way.” 

While President Trump is being accused of encouraging the violence, Terrell said that expressing disappointment is “perfectly okay.” 

“It never came out of Donald Trump’s mouth,” he said. “If I say go down to the Capitol building and express your disappointment, that’s perfectly okay.”

Terrell reiterated that those who stepped inside the Capitol and destroyed property are criminals, but that Donald Trump did not recommend anyone to do so. 

“Come on now, I’m a lawyer for 30 years. If you go down and say ‘go down to the Capitol building and express your disappointment, that is not a criminal act and you know that, Geraldo, and the nation knows that. What those people did, go inside the building, damage the property, that is criminal activity. Donald Trump never recommended, suggested or told those people to go in and break and enter the Capitol building.” 

“This is unbelievable,” he said. “You’re putting the responsibility of hundreds of thousands of people on the shoulders of Donald Trump because he disagrees with the process.” 

Terrell also called out D.C. mayor Muriel Bowser for failing to prosecute Black Lives Matter during the summer, then attacking the president. 

“Muriel Bowser, last year she opened the door to Black Lives Matter and let them destroy the city without prosecution and she comes on with talking points again, attacking the president, blaming him for what happened yesterday,” he said. 

“Donald Trump did not cause that.”

    Thank you, Leo, for standing up for the president! You are one of the few that hasn’t turned your back on him. Geraldo uses Leftard talking points because he IS a Leftard. With friends like Geraldo, Pence, Barr & all those who promised Trump that they’d vote to oppose the electors, such as Marsha Blackburn, the newly sworn in Bill Hagerty (both are my TN senators), Kelly Loeffler (all of whom Trump campaigned for & endorsed) & many others, the president certainly doesn’t need enemies!

Shaq Denounces ‘Celebrity-Ness’ Says They are ‘Out of Their Freaking Mind’

Basketball legend Shaquille O’Neal had some harsh words for celebrities and declared he is not one

In an interview with the New York Post, basketball legend Shaquille O’Neal had some harsh words for celebrities and declared he is not one. “I denounce my celebrity-ness today. I’m done with it” O’Neal told the Post while discussing his new Kellogg’s deal.

“Celebrities are crazy. I don’t want to be in that category. They are. They’re going freaking insane. Don’t call me that anymore” said O’Neal. “These people are out of their freaking mind with how they treat people, what they do, what they say. That’s never been me. I never want to be looked at like that.”

O’Neal’s Kellogg’s deal consists of his own new Frosted Flakes cereal, Crispy Cinnamon Basketballs, and partnership with Mission Tiger, which will help over 60,000 middle-schoolers.

“The Mission Tiger program pledged to purchase new sports equipment, including uniforms, for students across the U.S. The Schools involved in the mission will take place in the six cities where O’Neal played over 19 seasons – Boston, Cleveland, Los Angeles, Miami, Orlando and Phoenix” reports The Post.

O’Neal wants to be remembered for his kindness, says the 49-year-old who grew up poor in New Jersey and says he tries to do random acts of kindness at least twice per week.

Everyone gets stereotyped but celebrities get stereotyped because most of them are “our of their damn mind.” He said. “I’m a regular person that listened, that followed their dreams, made it. But just because I made it don’t mean I’m bigger than you. Just because I made it don’t mean I’m smarter than you. Just cause I have more money than you don’t mean that I’m better than you.”

 I’ve never been that way and I never will be that way. So I don’t want to be in that category of people. When they talk about Shaq, what do you say? ‘He’s a nice guy.’ Because what else can you be? You’re either nice or you’re the A-word, and I definitely won’t be looked at as the A-word,” he said.

“I want people to say, ‘Bro, he’s nice. He didn’t have an entourage. His people didn’t take my phone because I took a picture and threw it.’”

Employees Completely Helpless as Shoplifters Walk Out With Thousands Worth of Goods at Oregon Lowes

Social media Twitter account @libsoftiktok which states in the bio it posts “all things insane & hypocritical” posted a one-minute video showing “2 people walk out of an Oregon Lowe’s with carts of stolen merchandise. Employees look on and are unable to do anything.”

As the video plays, words highlighted red appear that read, “INCREDIBLE STATE OF OREGON, USA” and “IF YOU KNOW THESE PEOPLE, PLEASE ALERT THE POLICE IMMEDIATELY.” The video takes place at a Lowes store and epitomizes the sad times we are in.

Within the first eight seconds of the video, the two robbers, with filled carts, simply stroll out of the store as if they were paying customers. The Lowes employee asks the men “can you show me the receipts?” The young man appears to flash something while saying “right here.”

The female employee then says “no, I don’t think so” knowing the men did not pay for the items. The two thieves continue to walk the carts out of the store and a second, elderly Lowes employee attempts to stop the men, shouting “hey” as he follows them.

The female employee stops the elderly male employee from pursuing the robbers saying, “it’s not worth it.” As the robbers have successfully exited the store, into the parking lot, the male recording the video then asks the employees, “doesn’t it suck you guys can’t do anything? I mean I think it’s just amazing.”

The video then shows the men in the parking lot throwing the stolen items into a red Subaru where it appears others were waiting to help. A voice can be heard explaining that the guys are packing the car with stolen goods, and another man explains it happens “every day.”

“Dude that’s thousands of dollars – I’m an electrician, bro” the videographer explains of the sheer amount of goods being stolen. The thieves close the back door and the videographer zooms in to the back of the car to show the “license tag” before the car speeds away. The red highlighted words “IF YOU KNOW THESE PEOPLE, PLEASE ALERT THE POLICE IMMEDIATELY” remained on the video the whole time.
