Not only did James Shaw Jr. stop a shooter in a Waffle House before he could have done more damage and killed more people, he then set up a GoFundMe page for the victims of the shooting and has raised nearly a quarter of a million dollars so far.
Authorities said Shaw’s bravery saved numerous lives, but he has refused to call himself a hero, saying only that he stood up to the gunman to save his own life.
“I never thought I would be in a room with all the eyes on me but, you know, I am very grateful to be here,” a humble Shaw told the Tennessee State legislature during a ceremony honoring him. “All I can say is … this was a true test of a man. I do, once again, apologize to the people that lost loved ones, friends or family.”
In addition to four counts of criminal homicide, Reinking was hit this week with four attempted murder charges and one count of unlawful gun possession in the commission of a violent felony, according to the Davidson County District Attorney’s Office.
New rule. Every post I do of something stupid/terrible/racist/sexist/war-provoking/etc. that Trump says or does, I need to post something positive.

WATCH: During an event with Team USA Olympians and Paralympians at the White House, President Trump said, "What happened with the Paralympics was so incredible and so inspiring to me. And I watched — it's a little tough to watch too much, but I watched as much as I could." pic.twitter.com/geYUUu9vmg

Today: Trump admitted Michael Cohen represented him re Stormy Daniels case; Trump bashed his DOJ and issued a veiled threat he might take action at some point; Trump’s VA Secretary nominee withdrew from consideration. It’s not even 9AM.

I was watching my Twitter timeline erupt with incredulity at the interview President Shithole gave this morning on Fox and Friends. As crazy as he sounds in transcript form, it’s really something else altogether to listen to the audio of him frothing. At this point I really have to question anybody who still to this day supports this raging lunatic who has control of our nuclear weapons. I don’t think he’s qualified to enter the White House as a tourist at this point and the American people put him in the Oval Office.

Every single person Trump has chosen his the worst person possible for the job. (Mattis may be the sole exception)
Senate lawmakers have postponed the confirmation hearing for Ronny L. Jackson, President Trump’s nominee to lead the Department of Veterans Affairs, after top Republicans and Democrats raised concerns about his qualifications and oversight of the White House medical staff, White House and other administration officials were told Monday.
The development came just two days before Jackson, the White House physician, was scheduled to testify before the Senate Committee on Veterans’ Affairs and threw what was looking to be a difficult confirmation process into further jeopardy.
In addition to Jackson’s lack of management experience, the former combat surgeon had come under fire for his glowing appraisal of Trump’s health following his annual physical in January. Jackson said then that the president might live to the age of 200 with a healthier diet. In recent days, fresh concerns arose about Jackson’s management of the White House medical office, said the officials, who declined to provide details.
Hard pass for me.
