A 69-year-old man was taken off life support on Wednesday, three days after sustaining injuries in a physical altercation outside of a California Starbucks.

Robert Ketner was enjoying his latte on Oct. 17 when a vehicle approached playing really loud music. “People were complaining about it,” a family member told KTXL. ” So, he pointed out which car it was and asked them to turn their music down.”

Sometime during this dialogue, Ketner was punched to the ground “sustaining an injury to his head. He never regained consciousness,” Rocklin Detective Zack Lewis told CBS13.

On Wednesday, 20-year-old, River Baumann was out on bail in connection to the incident when he was rearrested on one charge of voluntary manslaughter.

His current bail is $250,000 and he is expected in court on Nov. 3.

Remembered as an “avid motorcycle rider” who “enjoyed being a grandfather & great-grandfather,” Ketner will be greatly missed. He “loved telling funny stories & hanging around with friends.”

“Whatever the argument was, no one deserves to lose their life,” Lewis said.

Coronavirus mRNA vaccines may not work for obese people

A new study suggests the coronavirus mRNA vaccines may not be as effective when administered to obese people.

So far, only 15% of the U.S. population has been vaccinated against Covid-19. Of that number, less than 1% are Black.

The CDC even has a term for it: Black vaccine hesitancy.

According to the news media, the vaccines are “safe and effective.” Yet obese Black women are dying within hours after receiving their vaccine doses. A majority of Black women who reportedly died after receiving the vaccines are obese.

A new study out of Italy found that Pfizer’s vaccines may be less effective in obese people who received both doses.

Researchers at the National Cancer Institute Regina Elena determined that obese people produced only half of the antibodies compared with people with a normal body mass index (BMI).

“Since obesity is a major risk factor for morbidity and mortality for patients with Covid-19, it is mandatory to plan an efficient vaccination program in this subgroup,” the study’s authors wrote.

In addition to obesity, other risk factors for Covid-19 include respiratory disorders, heart disease, diabetes, HIV and smoking.

Researchers say further studies are needed to determine why the vaccines are less effective for obesity people.

Donald Trump Will Pretend To Run For President in 2024 To Make More Money

According to his niece Mary, Donald Trump will “pretend” to run for president in 2024 to collect funds before finally dropping out.

Since leaving the White House in January, Trump has attempted to maintain his status as the center of political attention within the Republican Party.

On Saturday, he teased a 2024 run against the Conservative Political Party, falsely claiming that he defeated the Democrats last year and saying that he “may even decide to beat them for a third time.”

Mary Trump, who published a highly critical book about her uncle last year, told MSNBC on Monday that Trump would continue to tease a presidential run in the 2024 election because he had raised large sums of money from supporters since he lost the election to Biden by falsely claiming victory.

As he continued to promote unfounded allegations of systemic voter fraud to his allies, Trump has collected at least $150 million in contributions opposing the outcome of November’s election.

According to Ashley Collman of Insider, the rest of the funds will be used to finance the president’s political future.

Mary Trump told MSNBC’s Mehdi Hasan, “I think he’s going to pretend to [run].”

“Think about how much money he’s made off the big lie over the last few months. He’s made more money since President Biden won the election than I think he has in his entire life. So I don’t think he’s going to let that grift go quite so soon.”

Trump predicted that her uncle would not run for the Republican presidential nomination in 2024 because he is afraid of losing.

She said, “There’s no way that he is going to put himself in the position of losing again. The problem is the Republican party seems determined to keep him legitimate, which is the really scary part.”

Despite losing to President Joe Biden last year, several influential Republican lawmakers have already begun to explore the possibility of Trump running for president in 2024.

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell said this weekend that he would “absolutely” support Trump for the next presidential nomination, while Sen. Lindsey Graham has said that he intends to use Trump’s political image to win the House and Senate in 2022.

Senator Mitt Romney, who voted in February to convict Trump on impeachment charges related to the Capitol riot, estimated that if Trump wanted to run in 2024, he would win by a “landslide.”

He told listeners during an interview with the New York Times project, “I look at the polls, and the polls show that among the names being floated as potential contenders in 2024 if you put President Trump in there among Republicans, he wins in a landslide.”
