She's angry. Welcome to the era of trump she is just fighting for her freedom Sorry this happened to her. My first thought was, why go to Houston? Was that City part of the big breakout of Covid-19 How many days in a row for re-upping this story, ? Too bad there’s nothing more timely to report on. Reminds me of the person they should have arrested who was black and screaming white people need to die.

Unbelievable. Slapping these morons on the wrist isn't going to cut it anymore. These people are criminals, THUGS, and should be treated accordingly. No justice, no peace. Ya tried this a few days ago. Got drug and shelved it. Until such time as the streets are clearing via curfew. “Investigators are still trying to figure out what caused the incident” 🤔

How long did it take to arrest this woman? Another Trump supporter heard from. Meanwhile its people like her now saying violence doesnt solve anything Instead of cancelling a lot of other stuff because they don’t fit 2020 standards, why not cancel Karens. Whoa. Crazies abound. Ah, Irish Americans. Stay classy.

Nice to see justice against a racist. It might be only one, but if we keep heading this direction, more examples will hopefully deter others. Keep your racism in the closet. We have no time for your ignorance. Good. I hope she’s convicted and pays for her racist acts. 肏你妈 I want to know WHY she did what she did. You cannot tell by looking at Dr. Franco that she is Mexican. Looks like pearly white Euro trash.

George Zimmerman a darker Hispanic made out to be a white man to push false narrative of racism when Zimmerman has Black Panamanian grandfather. Now those guys & Chaco Dist in Colombia are black as coal. The consequences of Democrat Party speech of hate bully and disrespect of an elected President ! Demo- rats

Ignorance into evil souls.bad combination ..no matter the skin color So glad. Welcome to Donald Trump's America. He dug up all the closet radical racist and told them that they had a right to act like the animals that they have always been! If you wanna shot somebody maybe it should be this stupid redneck?!? Dontcha think! texasstupidty

Lock her up I wonder what the circumstances are that we do not know such as the treatment of her husband and his state of health. Wow sad to see And you think continuously posting this woman’s face on Twitter is a good idea right now? A true trump supporter, the GOP must be so proud right now ! Karen Alert

Bernie Sanders' Campaign Could Provide Lessons For Biden Latino OutreachLatinos are set to be the largest minority voting group in November, as well as crucial electorates in battleground states. So if Joe Biden wants to spur these key votes, he may want to learn a thing or two from Bernie Sander's campaign, experts say. Why does the Delaware flag display 2 white men with weapons and an ox, but no people of color? Because I said so...shut your piehole!! Or how about we should have just had Bernie instead. I thought you guys had articles saying it was.only BernieBros voting for him?
