While the Twitterverse laughs at #ChickenTrump tweets mocking Donald Trump for backing out of a debate with Bernie Sanders, a Trump cheerleader at Fox News got his back with a ridiculous excuse.
On today’s America’s News HQ, host Uma Pemmaraju discussed Trump’s flip-flops with Trump “senior advisor” (and Mike Huckabee’s daughter), Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

A few weeks ago, I went to a Donald Trump rally in suburban Philadelphia. Boisterous supporters lined the sidewalks, chanting “USA” and “Build That Wall.” Many of them also wore hats and T-shirts bearing an incongruous message, especially for such a noisy afternoon: “The Silent Majority Stands With Trump.”
That’s been a recurring theme in the campaign since last August, when Trump declared that “the Silent Majority is back.” Like the Donald himself, however, Trump backers are anything but silent.

Did you know that America’s police exercise extra “restraint” in their decision to shoot black people?
This is one of the findings by Washington State University researchers Lois James, Stephen M. James, and Bryan J. Vila in their new journal article, “The Reverse Racism Effect: Are Cops More Hesitant to Shoot Black than White Suspects?”
As reported in Tom Jackman’s True Crime blog at the Washington Post:
The conventional thinking about police-involved shootings, and some scientific research, has been that black suspects are more likely to be shot than white suspects because of an implicit racial bias among police officers. But now a new study has found exactly the opposite: even with white officers who do have racial biases, officers are three times less likely to shoot unarmed black suspects than unarmed white suspects.
The results come from a laboratory project at Washington State University using highly realistic police simulators, in which actors in various scenarios approach and respond to officers on large, high-definition video screens in an attempt to recreate critical situations on the street.
