*President’s Trump’s former campaign manager, Brad Parscale, is reportedly under psychiatric care at a Fort Lauderdale hospital after being talked out of suicide attempt over the weekend. 

Parscale served as Trump’s re-election campaign manager until he was demoted in July. The Fort Lauderdale (Fla.) Police Department confirmed he was admitted to Broward Health Medical Center for observation, but gave no reason for why Parscale wanted to take his own life. 

On Sunday, Parscale’s wife reportedly called police to report “an armed male attempting suicide.” 

She told officers “her husband was armed, had access to multiple firearms inside the residence and was threatening to harm himself.”

When officers arrived at the scene, they made contact with Parscale, and “developed a rapport, and safely negotiated for him to exit the home.” He was then transported to the Broward Health Medical Center under Florida’s Baker Act, IBI Times reports.

“He came out and we got him some help,” Fort Lauderdale Police Chief Karen Dietrich told CNN.

The Trump campaign say Democrats and anti-Trump Republicans are to blame for Parscale’s suicide attempt. 

“Brad Parscale is a member of our family and we all love him,” said Tim Murtaugh, Trump campaign’s spokesperson. “We are ready to support him and his family in any way possible.”

News of the suicide attemt coincides with the bombshell report from the New York Times that details Trump‘s tax returns over two decades.

The report reveals that Trump paid only $750 in federal taxes in 2016 and 2017, respectively. He also didn’t pay income taxes in 10 of the last 15 years. 

“Over the past decade, President Trump has paid tens of millions of dollars in personal taxes to the federal government, including paying millions in personal taxes since announcing his candidacy in 2015,” Alan Garten, lawyer for the Trump Organization, said in a statement, in response to the Times’ report. 

Meanwhile, bestselling author Don Winslow noted on Twitter, @parscale isn’t in a psych ward because of the current @nytimes story. He’s in a psych ward because he knows the next two stories that are coming. Save this tweet.”

Jeannie Explains How She Was Prioritizing Work Over Her Health

Jeannie Mai: Man, we already know how precious health is, but I am a workaholic and I do prioritize my work more than my health. And in this situation, I absolutely kind of just thought taking a steroid shot or just taking Theraflu or Dayquil would help cover it, because – I was in a competition, yo, and I was not going to let down. I really took that too seriously, more than my health, and then I – God taught me a lesson. So, um – it was a… the part that… Getting sick wasn’t the upsetting part, it was actually just being depressed because I let myself get to this, and for the last few weeks, I gotta be honest, I was pretty upset at myself, because everything ended. I stopped shooting my favorite talk show every day, and I had to step out of a competition, which I feel like I was doing good, and I could have staying in the running…

Adrienne Houghton: You were gonna win!

Jeannie: So, I’ve, I’ve just… thank you, Adrienne. I believe I could have too. But I didn’t give up!

Adrienne: I believe you were gonna win!

Jeannie: I really – I really appreciate that. I, I really learned a lesson. Being in a dark place where you actually just feel like you have no… you’re helpless – it’s the worst feeling ever. Like, you did it to yourself. And so, I take full responsibility.

*Hamza “Travis” Nagdy, a young protest leader known for calling out the injustice done to Breonna Taylor, was shot and killed early Monday morning in Louisville, Kentucky. 

Nagdy, 21, was reportedly the victim of a suspected car jacking. According to USA Today, he was transported to University of Louisville Hospital, where he later died as a result of his injuries.

The Louisville Metro Police Department is investigating, and no suspects have been identified.

Nagdy is the the latest grassroots leader/advocate against anti-police brutality to die in a random attack that progressive and woke Black folk are giving the side-eye to.

“He’s irreplaceable,” said Antonio T-Made Taylor, an independent reporter who mentored the victim. “Travis really believed he could help change systemic racism. He believed he could be a big part of that change.

“What I’m hoping is he will become a symbol of the violence that’s going on, and people will finally give it the attention that we need to be giving to this record number of homicides in our city. …We’re just hoping that he will become a symbol of what great lives we are going to lose if we don’t wrap a movement around what’s going on.”

Maxwell Mitchell, who participated in many summer protests in Louisville, described Nagdy as a man with “a strong sense of strength, a sense of willingness to spend and give everything he had toward this” during a live video on Monday. 

“I can only assume that that energy is going to waft over all of us like a wildfire,” Mitchell said.

“Travis really believed he could help change systemic racism. He believed he could be a big part of that change,” said Taylor.

“What I’m hoping is he will become a symbol of the violence that’s going on, and people will finally give it the attention that we need to be giving to this record number of homicides in our city. …We’re just hoping that he will become a symbol of what great lives we are going to lose if we don’t wrap a movement around what’s going on,” he added.

*You’ve heard that the Trump supporters within the conspiracy movement Q’Anon believe that Democrats are running a pedophile ring and eating babies to extract a life-extending chemical from their blood. And that these child eaters/molesters include Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, George Soros, Ellen DeGeneres and Oprah Winfrey.

But did you know these folks also believe that Donald Trump’s misspelled tweets – like “covfefe” and “the smocking gun” – are secret, coded messages for Q-Anon members? And that Trump was secretly recruited by top military generals to run for president in 2016 in order to break up this criminal cabal of Dems, end their control of politics and the media, and bring its members to justice?

Did you know that two Q’Anon believers were just elected to the U.S. House of Representatives, representing areas in Colorado and Georgia?

On “The Daily Show” Monday night, Trevor Noah broke down Q’Anon’s origins, their infiltration into mainstream politics and just how removed from reality its members really are
