The most reliable and balanced news aggregation service in the world, RWN offers the following information published by THE HILL.

Former White House press secretary Sean Spicer was accused by a man at a book signing on Friday of using a racial slur when the two were in prep school together, after which the man declared he was no longer afraid to “fight” Spicer.

In a video published by NewportRI.com, a man identified as Alex Lombard is seen yelling to Spicer during a book signing in Middletown, R.I., telling the Rhode Island native that they had attended the Portsmouth Abbey School together in the state.

“Sean, I was a day student at [Portsmouth] Abbey, too, with you,” Lombard said.

“Hey,” Spicer appears to respond to Lombard in the video. “Yes, how are you?”

“You don’t remember that you tried to fight me?” continued Lombard, who is African-American. “But you called me a [n-word] first.”

Security personnel are then seen in the video escorting the man out while another person in line calls for him to be arrested.

“I was 14 then. I was a scared kid then, Sean. I’m not scared to fight you now,” Lombard is heard yelling.

Spicer’s reaction was not caught on video, but a publicist for the former White House aide told The Associated Press he was “taken aback” by the “outrageous” accusation.

Lauren McCue, a publicist for Regnery Publishing, said that Spicer “can’t recall any incident” like the one Lombard described.

Spicer, who left the Trump administration last year after a tumultuous relationship with the White House press corps, is on a national book tour for the release of his book “The Briefing: Politics, The Press, and the President,” detailing his time on the White House communications staff.

The former Trump aide faced another interruption during a book signing in New York City on Wednesday by a protester who called him a “garbage person.”

“Hey Sean, you’re a real piece of garbage and I hope you look around and see all these empty seats,” a man shouted inside the Union Square Barnes & Noble bookstore. “And I hope you realize in even in New York City people will not come and pay to hear you speak.”

President Trump has attempted to boost his former aide’s book, telling his Twitter followers to “go get it!”

“A friend of mine and a man who has truly seen politics and life as few others ever will, Sean Spicer, has written a great new book, ‘The Briefing: Politics, the Press and the President.’ It is a story told with both heart and knowledge. Really good, go get it!” Trump wrote.

Simone Biles Speaks Out After Interim USA Gymnastics President Blasts Nike and Kaepernick

Political correctness is a severe cancer in this world. I’m so tired of people apologize for something that needs no apology. If you are going to speak out about something…don’t apologize.

Don’t worry Simone Biles, it’s not like people are entitled to their opinion or that are shills for Big Corporations like dictating how everyone should think.

Dear Simone, stick to being a gymnast. Go on and keep making your money from a fascist company.

From Western Journal:

USA Gymnastics has found itself mired in perpetual controversy in recent years

The snowball began rolling in earnest when the horrific allegations of sexual abuse against team doctor Larry Nassar surfaced in 2015.

Obviously, Nassar’s actions are unforgivable and he deserves every last second of what is effectively a life sentence in prison.

After taking care of Nassar, the hounds of justice set their sights on USA Gymnastics itself. Any organization that could have been so unaware of the horrors taking place right under its nose deserve the accompanying scrutiny.

Former USA Gymnastics president Steve Penny was forced to resign by the USOC after his horrible mishandling of the Nassar scandal.

His replacement, Kerry Perry, also ended up being forced to resign after her leadership was questioned by USOC.

Now, Perry’s replacement, Mary Bono, has also found herself in controversy, though nothing as serious as the last two.

Bono, a former Republican congresswoman in California, was barely on the job when a month-old tweet of hers resurfaced.

“Playing in a charity golf tournament raising for our nation’s Special Forces operators and their families. Unfortunately, had these shoes in my bad. Luckily I had a marker in my bag too,” Bono said in a since-deleted tweet.

The accompanying picture showed her using a black marker to hide the Nike logo on a shoe.

Regardless of how you feel about Nike’s divisive ad featuring Colin Kaepernick, Bono is more than entitled to her opinion. Yes, she put Nike, and by extension Kaepernick, on blast for the latter’s rhetoric. But she’s hardly exclusive in her feelings. Bono is just one of many Americans who feel that Kaepernick’s anthem protests were disrespectful to the flag, the military and the police.

While Bono is obviously allowed to voice her opinion, she unfortunately also drew the ire of her organization’s premiere athlete, Olympic gold medalist Simone Biles.

“Don’t worry, it’s not like we needed a smarter usa gymnastics president or any sponsors or anything,” Biles wrote in a blistering response tweet prefaced by a “mouth drop.”

While USA Gymnastics hasn’t had a team sponsor since late 2017, Biles is personally sponsored by Nike, according to ESPN.

Perhaps realizing that Biles is the one gymnast she cannot afford to alienate, Bono promptly deleted the tweet and issued an apology.

“I regret the post and respect everyone’s views & fundamental right to express them. This doesn’t reflect how I will approach my position @USAGym I will do everything I can to help build, w/ the community, an open, safe & positive environment,” Bono said in her apology tweet.

It would be nice to think that this will be the final controversy USA Gymnastics will have to deal with for a while. But if recent history is any indication, that seems almost impossible.

President Trump is an awesome human being. You don’t have to call and beg for help on President Trumps watch, with ever disaster he has been there for each one.

This is a man who truly cares for the American people. It’s nice to have a President that cares.

From ABC News:

Five days into the aftermath of the most disastrous hurricane to hit the Florida Panhandle, survivors are beginning the long road to recovery as officials continue to search for dozens still missing.

Hurricane Michael’s death toll has climbed to 18.

Officials expected the number of people killed by the storm to increase as crews sifted through the wreckage of once-bustling oceanside cities, including Mexico Beach and Panama City Beach, the Associated Press reported.

The powerful storm sounded like a freight train when it barreled into Panama City, said resident Jackie Lane, who was overcome with emotion recalling her experience to ABC News on Monday.

Lane, her husband and her son rode out the storm in an inn down the street from her home. She and her son raced into the bathtub, she said, as her husband sat on the floor and put his feet up against the bathroom door to hold it.

“It was already splitting,” she said of the door, her voice shaking, “and the roof came, the ceiling came off.”

“For about three hours it just sucked us in and sucked us out, sucked us in and sucked us out,” she said. “I thought I was gonna lose my husband cause the door was cracking. And the stove and refrigerator that was in there, we could hear them just backing together and clanging around. We seen the stove fly across us. We seen all the debris, trees, pieces of everything.”

The entire second story of that inn is now gone.

“We lost everything,” Lane said. “We’re lucky to have our lives.”

In nearby Mexico Beach, another town pulverized by Michael, 46 of those who didn’t evacuate were missing still missing on Sunday, the city’s mayor told ABC News.

Mayor Al Cathey said 289 people, including 10 children, decided to stay put despite evacuation orders, and rode out the Category 4 storm that made landfall on Wednesday. Michael devastated homes and businesses in Mexico Beach, which has a population of nearly 1,200.

Of the 18 people killed as the hurricane swept through the Florida Panhandle, Virginia, Georgia and North Carolina, only one confirmed death was reported in Mexico Beach. When Michael made landfall there, winds topped out around 155 mph.

Police made two sweeps of Mexico Beach on Wednesday morning and recorded the names of everyone who planned to stay, though officials said it’s impossible to know who might have left during or immediately after the storm.

Michael knocked out power across the South, and Sunday night almost 700,000 remained powerless across five states, including 188,000 in Florida.

The storm not only destroyed homes and business in the city, it destroyed the Mexico Beach Police Department.

“We don’t have a building — from my understanding, the water surge moved it off its foundation,” Police Chief Anthony Kelly told ABC News on Friday. “The officers, I finally made accountability of them all today, two days after the fact. … They’re not just my officers, the people that I work with, they’re my family.”

Emily Mitchell returned on Saturday afternoon to what was left of the house her family owned in Mexico Beach. The roof was ripped off and walls were blown in. She called it a “total loss.”
