Even Tucker looks disgusted with the whole situation.

Disgusted to be implicated in doing the same gooseberry fool on live TV, maybe.

It’s only been a few days since someone was arrested with weapons outside the residence of the US vice president, Kamala Harris.

Judging by the speed at which the police have classed the incident as "definitely not terrorism" it's safe to say the now-dead suspect was white.

If this is aimed at me you have zero idea what racism is.

Couldn't have been much more wrong there, Taf. Some sort of link to a religious extremist group, too.

Which part was racist? I think you're misunderstanding somewhere along the line.

He's linked to Nation of Islam but it's not clear if it was a political/religiously motivated attacked. If the police are saying it wasn't terrorism, then it sounds more like "lone nutter".

The right wing and Q types are jumping all over the Nation of Islam links, but they are forgetting that Louis Farrakhan (NoI leader) was full of praise for Trump. They've just seen Islam/Black man and assumed this is a left wing attack. Idiots.
