Watch: Trump Sits Down With CNN After Debate, Makes Shocking Confession Many Didn’t Expect

Donald Trump apparently had his hands full at Thursday’s Republican presidential debate hosted by CNN. With attacks coming continually from both Sen. Ted Cruz and Sen. Marco Rubio, Trump, according to a post-debate poll,  still came out on top. However, Trump’s popularity is in stark contrast to how he’s perceived by individuals who may have a better grasp of civics than the Republican front-runner.

In an exchange with Cruz, Trump made several inaccurate statements about the role of judges. Trump attempted to defend his sister’s record as a judge, but in doing so, revealed to the audience a bit of judicial ignorance, according to Leon H. Wolf of Red State. Trump said:

Now, Ted’s been very critical, I have a sister, who is a brilliant, [interruption] excuse me, she’s a brilliant judge. He’s been criticizing… he’s been criticizing my sister for signing a certain bill. You know who else signed that bill? Justice Samuel Alito, a very conservative member of the Supreme Court, with my sister signed that bill. So, I think that maybe we should get a little bit of an apology from Ted, what do you think?

 

Critical of the revealed ignorance in Trump’s comments Wolf wrote, “This is not ‘Trump isn’t a politician,’ this is ‘Trump doesn’t understand Civics 101.’” Judges do not sign bills which leaves open the question as to what Trump might have been trying to say. Was he referring a judicial decision? Was he referencing a court order? At any rate, Trump did not appear any more knowledgeable with his comments in the post-debate interview.

In the interview, Trump was asked who he would recommend for the vacant Supreme Court seat left by the late Justice Antonin Scalia. Trump replied, “I would want to see scholars, but I think more than my asking, I would go on references of other people that I respect. Because that is not necessarily my world. I’m very much into the world of legal and legality. But, that is not my world, so I would go to people that I have great respect for and say, ‘Who do you recommend?’” Trump has often fallen back on his role as a businessman, rather than a politician, when asked tough questions, a fact Blitzer highlighted when he wrote about the interview with Trump.

Wolf wrote, “This is a pretty stunning admission from Trump … What Trump is saying here is that he, personally, has no idea whatsoever what he would do. He has no idea what questions he might ask of a judge. This is not a guy who can be trusted … By his own admission he has literally no idea what he’s doing when it comes to judicial nominations. Quite frankly, as he demonstrated in the debate, he does not even know what judges do. And this is someone you want picking the replacement for Scalia?”

Watch: Dad Walks Into Daughter’s Classroom, Immediately Sees Something Disturbing Hanging On The Wall

Outrage erupted at a Kentucky high school after several parents found anti-police artwork on display in their children’s classroom.

According to a report by WLKY, the artwork was the product of an honors English class assignment at North Oldham High School. Students were asked to read To Kill A Mockingbird, then draw pictures showing what they believed to be social injustice.

The artwork that sparked the outrage depicts a Klu Klux Klan member in 1930 about to shoot a black man alongside a picture of a police officer shooting a black child in 2015. It was drawn by a student in a previous year’s class.

 

But some parents and local residents haven’t accepted this response and are calling for the images to be taken down.

“I do think it’s a little dramatic, and right now it is a very touching time to have something like that come up,” said David Byrd. “They risk their lives for this job and our communities. Cops aren’t killers, they defend our safety. That’s my opinion about it.”

One of the parents upset about the artwork is David Hamblin, a local police offer. His daughter is a student in the class.

“My daughter is not unlike other children of first responders. Hamblin posted on Facebook. “She fears for my safety every day, and believes me to be a man of honesty and courage. What this propaganda creates, are future cop haters, which endanger me, and 800,000 other courageous protectors.”

“When I saw it, I could see immediately why [my daughter] didn’t feel comfortable with it, because I didn’t feel comfortable with it,” Hamblin told WDRB in an interview Wednesday. “It’s comparing a race-based ideology, or the KKK, to that of professional workers who serve their country day-in and day-out. There’s propaganda and there’s the First Amendment. They’re two different things, especially in a government-run classroom.”

North Oldham High School responded to the concerns with the following statement. “We believe that our role as educators is to prepare our kids for the world beyond the classroom, and sometimes things are going to be controversial,” said Tracy Green, the director of communications for Oldham County Schools.

“They’re pictures about social injustice, so I would assume they’re a little offensive to a lot of people, because we’re talking about a controversial issue,” Green continued.

While the school says it understands the anger, and that these images are in no way meant to diminish the service police perform, the images will not be coming down.

Watch: Trump Just Responded To Mexican Ex-President Dropping F-Bomb About Wall With BRUTAL 6 Words

Former president of Mexico Vincente Fox is not a fan of Donald Trump, or his plan to have Mexico pay to build a wall along the border of the two countries.

In an interview with Univision’s Jorge Ramos, Fox declared, “I’m not going to pay for that f–g wall.”

Fox then took on the role of a preacher by advising Hispanics not to follow Trump because he’s a “false prophet.” Fox also declared that what is happening in the U.S. presidential race is “not democracy” and said Trump will pay for the wall because he’s got enough money to do it on his own. Fox concluded Trump is simply egocentric.

Trump took umbrage with Fox’s comments about him. During Thursday’s Republican presidential debate, Wolf Blitzer quoted Fox’s f-bomb and then asked Trump how he would still intend to pay for the wall without Mexico’s help and how he would make them pay for it.

Trump responded, “I will and the wall just got 10 feet taller believe me. It got 10 feet taller. I saw him make the statement. I saw him use the word that he used. I can only tell you if I would have used even half of that word, it would be a national scandal. This guy used a filthy disgusting word on television, and he should be ashamed of himself and he should apologize.”

Trump alluded to possibly of going after current trade agreements with Mexico.

“We have a trade deficit with Mexico of $58 billion a year and that doesn’t include all the drugs that are pouring across and destroying our country,” Trump said. “We’re going to make them pay for that wall. Now the wall is $10 billion to $12 billion if I do it. If these guys do it it’ll end up costing $200 billion.”

Trump said, “You need a thousand miles. The great wall of China, built 2,000 years ago is 13,000 miles,” implying the wall can be done and will be done if Trump is elected president. “This is a wall that’s going to work.”

“Mexico will pay for the wall. It’s a small portion of the kind of money that we lose and the deficits that we have with Mexico,” Trump concluded.

Watch The Chilling Video Kansas Shooter Posted To Facebook Just Days Before Incident

The gunman who went on a deadly rampage Thursday near Wichita, Kan., recently posted a video on Facebook of him shooting a semi-automatic weapon into a field.

After going on a shooting spree that left three of his co-workers dead and 14 injured, Cedric Ford, 38, was shot and killed by a Kansas sheriff at the Excel Industries plant in Hesston.

Harvey County Sheriff T. Walton stated a deputy had served Ford a restraining order around 3:30 p.m. Thursday involving his live-in girlfriend, the Wichita Eagle reported. The sheriff believes the order was likely what set Ford off on his tirade. 

Ford left the Excel factory, which produces lawn care products, not long after receiving the order and returned at approximately 5 p.m. and opened fire on his co-workers.

Law enforcement officials reported the gunman had a .223-caliber assault-style rifle and a semi-automatic pistol. 

Ford recently posted this video on Facebook.

He also posted multiple pictures of himself with various weapons.

“We always say it won’t happen here. Well here it is. It happened here,” Walton told NBC News regarding the shooting. “We’ll get through it. It’s a good community of good, strong people.”

Court records showed the assailant was a felon who previously lived in Miami and was on probation with a series of convictions in Florida, including burglary in 2000, according to NBC News. “He had a criminal record stretching back to October 1996, when he was charged with carrying a concealed firearm when he was 18 years old, the records showed,” the news outlet reported. 

How Ford obtained his firearms used in Thursday’s shooting is not clear.

Sheriff Walton told reporters that an officer from the Hesston police force, who was not named, went into the factory alone, killed the gunman and “saved a lot of lives.” Approximately 150 people were in the plant at the time the assailant was killed.

Five of the 14 victims injured remained in critical condition Friday in area hospitals.

Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback asked people to pray for those affected by the mass shooting.

BREAKING: Trump Receives Unexpected ‘Establishment’ Endorsement That Could Change Race

After ending his presidential bid in the wake of a sixth-place finish in the New Hampshire primary, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s endorsement became a topic of speculation among political pundits.

In a press conference Friday, Christie announced which GOP candidate has his support.

“I am proud to be here to endorse Donald Trump for president of the United States,” he said.

The high-profile political endorsement came on the heels of Trump’s first congressional endorsements, which he received from Republican congressmen Duncan Hunter and Chris Collins earlier this week.

Within minutes, Christie’s announcement gained widespread traction among social media users. Several Twitter users suggested the endorsement was a step toward securing a cabinet position in a potential Trump administration.

“Attorney General then Supreme Court,” one user predicted.

“Woah!,” another replied. “I think I see a possible VP!”

Others recalled the bitter rivalry between Christie and Marco Rubio in the days leading up to the New Hampshire primary.

“Surprised he didn’t endorse Rubio,” a commenter wrote. “They are such good friends.”

A few more cynical social media users insisted the billionaire front-runner paid Christie for the endorsement.
