DONALD TRUMP SAYS IRAQ WAR WAS AN ACCIDENT

imageLAS VEGAS, Nevada (The Adobo Chronicles®) – Republican presidential candidate Rick Perry characterized the recent shooting in Charleston as an “accident” during an interview on Friday, accusing President Obama of using the massacre, which claimed nine lives, as a pretext for pushing a gun control agenda.

“This is the MO of this administration anytime there is an accident like this,” Perry said during an appearance on Newsmax TV. The former Texas governor said the president “doesn’t like guns,” so “he uses every opportunity” to tighten restrictions on gun ownership.

Another Republican presidential candidate, Donald Trump, described the U.S. involvement in the Iraq war as an accident, saying that former President George W. Bush and his Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld accidentally believed that Saddam Hussein was concealing weapons of mass destruction.

It seems that Republicans have found the perfect excuse for everything that’s wrong with America and it’s a recurring theme that we will see throughout the presidential campaign season between now and the 2016 elections.

Senator Rand Paul is reportedly preparing a major speech this weekend in which he will describe the election of Barack Obama as an accident — twice over.

SILICON VALLEY, California (The Adobo Chronicles®Every day and every hour, we at The Adobo Chronicles® wave our magic wand to scan the world of news in the hope of shining the spotlight on things that are obvious, or not so obvious.

Then, our writers get right to work, putting their best spin — sometimes ridiculous, oftentimes funny, and occasionally offensive — in order to make sense (or not) of the topic at hand.

Next, we decide on the punchline for our news delivery.

It was business as usual yesterday. The top news was, of course, the shooting of nine people in a predominantly black church congregation in South Carolina allegedly by a 21-year-old white man.

It didn’t take long for our newsroom staff to decide on our punchline, which is …

NONE.

This is as crystal clear as black and white.

Our thoughts and prayers to the victims and families of this racist attack.

San Francisco, California (The Adobo Chronicles) – Three people were arrested early Thursday morning after a fight broke out at a club and escalated to a shooting in San Francisco’s Castro District, a police spokesman said.

The argument between a 38-year-old man and a group comprised of a 25-year-old woman and two men, ages 25 and 33, started at a club near 18th and Collingwood Street around 2:45 a.m., San Francisco police spokesman Officer Gordon Shyy said.

News of the unfortunate incident spread like wildfire among residents and business owners in the Castro and everyone was asking, “Where is the hot cop of Castro when we need him?”  They were, of course, referring to Chris Kohrs, the police officer  who has become one of the most recognized faces in the city and elsewhere after his photo while patrolling Castro Street  was posted on the Internet.  A Facebook fan page was subsequently set up in his honor.  To date, it has garnered over 50,000 ‘likes.’

A reporter from The Adobo Chronicles tried to walk Castro Street all day today in search of Kohrs in order to get his statement about this morning’s the fight and shooting.  The hot cop was nowhere to be found.

Indeed, where is the hot cop of Castro when we need him?
