Galveston police sued by Donald Neely, Black man who was led by rope by officers on horses

According to his new lawsuit, Neely said the way he was arrested made him feel “as though he was a slave.” The lawsuit, filed against the city and its police force last week, alleges that Neely’s arrest on suspicion of criminal trespassing was “extreme and outrageous.”

The police chief apologized, and the charges have been dropped, according to Neely’s attorney, Julie Ketterman. But Neely is now seeking up to $1 million in damages for emotional distress, malicious prosecution, and negligence after suffering both mental and physical anguish by those who had a duty to protect him, the attorney said.

The lawsuit alleges that he suffered physical and emotional pain, including handcuff abrasions, as he was led on foot to a mounted-officer staging area because no vehicles were immediately available to transport him.

The Galveston Police Department said it would not comment on an active lawsuit.

Donald Trump’s Post-COVID Poll Slump May Be Too Deep for Even a James Comey-Style Intervention

Former Vice President Joe Biden enjoys a commanding poll lead over President Donald Trump with just 27 days before the presidential election on November 3. The president’s positive test for COVID-19 doesn’t appear to have helped his standing.

U.S. President Donald Trump gives a thumbs up upon returning to the White House from Walter Reed National Military Medical Center on October 05, 2020 in Washington, DC. Trump spent three days hospitalized for coronavirus. His poll numbers have worsened since his diagnosis.

However, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was also ahead of Trump at this point in the 2016 race but went on to lose the electoral college vote as Trump won narrow victories in Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin.

On October 28, 2016 then FBI Director James Comey sent a letter to the House Judiciary Committee about the discovery of emails that may have been of

Donald Trump takes shot at Nancy Pelosi’s looks amid coronavirus criticism

In the midst of an hours-long Twitter tear on the “Russia Hoax,” the stimulus bill and charges of election fraud, President Trump took time out to take a shot at Nancy Pelosi’s attractiveness.

The House speaker had called Mr. Trump’s behavior a “brazen invitation” to the virus as the president was being hospitalized, prompting Mr. Trump to respond and raise the ante.

“Wear your mask in the ‘beauty’ parlor, Nancy!” Mr. Trump wrote.

The president was alluding to Mrs. Pelosi having been videotaped at a San Francisco salon that was supposed to have been closed under city law and not in a mask, to boot.

In referring to the ESalon facility, Mr. Trump used sarcastic quote marks around the word “beauty.”

Relations between Mr. Trump and Mrs. Pelosi have been frozen for

The White House gift shop sells coins commemorating Donald Trump defeating COVID-19 and winning election

Talk about premature congratulations.

The White House Gift Shop is already selling coins that commemorate US President Donald Trump defeating COVID-19 — and winning the election.

The gift shop was set up in 1950 but is not the official gift shop of the seat of the Whitehouse.

The coin, which is available for pre-order, is called “President Donald J. Trump Defeats COVID” and is the “final commemorative coin for President Trump’s first term”.

Coin designer and series creator Anthony Gianni said its design was “informed by superhero graphic art”.

“Surrounding President Donald J. Trump is a mythos never before seen in a United States president, a mythos not unlike the Epic of Gilgamesh,” he wrote on The White House Gift Shop site.

“Thus I am pleased to announce a new commemorative that vividly shows President Trump’s historic presidential candidacy win, itself, from his descent on the elevator in Trump Tower,

Is Donald Trump leading America toward a Belarusian model presidency? (opinion)

The very foundations of America’s legitimacy on the world stage could eventually rest, at least in part, on the question of just how many other countries would even recognize a president who failed to win a clear mandate of the American electorate, and whose victory was based less on a true electoral mandate than on some form of judicial or legal manipulation. This scenario would not be unlike the situation of any number of foreign leaders of questionable legitimacy who have rumbled into office and retained their power on the strength of brute force or simply hubris.

Donald Trump reportedly spent $70K to style his hair during ‘The Apprentice.’ How does that compare to other stars?

Donald Trump’s tax returns are the talk of the internet today — and one expense in particular that he wrote off has been heavily commented upon: the more than $70,000 he paid on haircuts and hairstyling for his infamous head of hair while making The Apprentice.

While there are still a lot of unknowns about the expense in the returns, unearthed by the New York Times in its bombshell report on Sunday, it still seems like a hefty tab for what he’s working with. Even if the $70,000 was over the duration of the series — and, for the sake of argument, we’ll include The Apprentice (2004-2010) and Celebrity Apprentice (2008-2015) — he spent $6,363 a year to style his hair for professional appearances.

And that amount would be in addition to the hairstyling services
