Kayleigh McEnany Defends Trump Tweet About Injured 75-Year-Old

White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany defended President Trump after he floated a baseless conspiracy theory in one of his tweets.

The president commented on an incident involving Martin Gugino, a 75-year-old man who was shoved to the ground by police in Buffalo, New York.

Trump described the elderly man as an “Antifa provocateur”, and claimed he was scanning “police communications in order to block out the equipment.” McEnany insisted that the president was only pointing out “questions that need to be asked,” adding that Trump did not regret what he said.

MythBusters' Adam Savage Faces Shocking Accusation By Family Member

Mythbusters co-host Adam Savage is facing a horrific accusation. And it's not from a groupie or ex-girlfriend, either. It's from his sister. Newser reports Miranda Pacchiana filed a lawsuit Tuesday in New York state accusing her brother of 'repeatedly' sexually abusing her as a child. Savage was 9 to 12 years old at the time of the alleged assaults, and Pacchiana was 7 to 10. Now 52, Savage denies everything. While I hope that my sister gets the help she needs to find peace, this needs to end.
