The family of the Publix empire, or at least the daughter, is the most recent person associated with the creation of the Jan. 6 rally that ultimately led to the Capitol insurrection.

According to Miami New Times, Julie Jenkins Fancelli, whose father founded Publix, reached out to a conservative, well-known Trump supporter, Alex Jones inquiring about “a pro-Trump event in D.C. on January 6.”

Fancelli offered to help bankroll the event. Contributing ~$300,000 of the total $500,000 cost of the rally (60%).

This is not the first time Julie or even the rest of her family put up large sums of money supporting Trump. The family has donated hundreds of thousands to Trump.

Julie specifically donated more than $980,000 to the Republican Party and Trump for his 2020 re-election bid, according to campaign-finance records.

A spokesperson for the grocery chain was unable to comment on Julie’s actions, as she is not directly involved in day-to-day operations.

“Mrs. Fancelli is not an employee of Publix Super Markets and is neither involved in our business operations nor does she represent the company in any way,” Publix said in a statement posted by Politico reporter Marc Caputo. “We cannot comment on Mrs. Fancelli’s actions.”

Fans are receiving the first look at HBO‘s documentary centered around the life and music career of iconic singer Tina Turner.

On Tuesday, HBO dropped the official trailer for the documentary “Tina.” According to People, the documentary will start at the beginning of her childhood. “My mother used to sit in the window of the kitchen when she was making dinner on Sundays. I used to just watch her. She was just so pretty,” the 81-year-old says in the trailer. “One day, she wasn’t in that window. She was never in it again,” said Tina referring to the moment her mother left her family to get away from the abusive relationship she had with Turner’s father.

“I wanted her to come for me. I waited, and she never did. And it’s alright — you know why?” she adds. “I’m a girl from a cotton field that pulled myself above the destruction and the mistakes. And I’m here for you.”

The documentary was directed by Dan Lindsay, T.J. Martin, and Lightbox. In the description, the doc is described as a “revealing and intimate look at the life and career.” “Tina” will include interviews with Tina in her hometown of Zurich, Switzerland, along with new footage, audiotapes, and personal photos of the songstress.

Hollywood greats like Oprah Winfrey and Tina Turner – who played her in the hit film “What’s Love Got to Do with It” – will also be featured in the documentary. The doc will hit HBO on March 27.

Mitch McConnell Say He Would ‘Absolutely’ Support Donald Trump If He Captures The Republican Presidential Nomination In 2024

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell says he would “absolutely” support disgraced Donald Trump if he were to run for president in 2024.

On Thursday, McConnell contradicted his recent words toward Trump, saying that the 2024 presidential election would be a “wide-open race” and said that if Trump gained the Republican nomination, he would definitely support him. “The nominee of the party? Absolutely,” said McConnell, according to CNN.

However, a few weeks ago, McConnell condemned Trump’s involvement in the U.S. Capitol domestic terrorist attack that took place on Jan. 6. McConnell has contradicted himself when it comes to Trump on several occasions. He voted to acquit Trump but also called Trump’s actions during the domestic terrorist attack riot “a disgraceful, disgraceful dereliction of duty.”

“Trump is practically and morally responsible for provoking the events of the day,” said McConnell. He even suggested that Trump should be subject to criminal prosecution. Trump clapped back at McConnell, calling him “a dour, sullen, and unsmiling political hack.”

“He will never do what needs to be done or what is right for our Country. Where necessary and appropriate, I will back primary rivals who espouse Making America Great Again and our policy of America First. We want brilliant, strong, thoughtful, and compassionate leadership,” Trump said, CNN reports.

Utah Sen. Mitt Romney believes Trump will grab hold of the Republican nomination come 2024. “I’m pretty sure he will win the nomination,” Romney told The New York Times. “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.”

Trump recently announced that he would be seeking the nomination at the Conservative Political Action Conference in Orlando on Sunday, where he plans to address “the future of the Republican Party and the conservative movement.”

King Von’s Manager Doesn’t Want To See His Killer Sent To Jail

King Von’s manager, Track, doesn’t want to see his client’s alleged shooter sent to jail.

Regardless of what Lul Tim, the alleged shooter, may believe, the rapper’s manager has no ill wish towards him.

During an interview with VLAD TV on Thursday, Track was asked if he felt justice was served when authorities arrested Quando Rondo’s ally Timothy Leeks, a.k.a Lul Tim, who was taken into custody for the murder of King Von.

“Honest truth, I wouldn’t wish jail on my worst enemies,” he responded.
“That’s just how I am, how I’m built. Honest truth, I could care – that’s his situation, and he gotta deal with it. That’s his team. Whatever’s going on with them, that’s on them.”

Track also said he has no resentment towards the “Crazy Story” rapper’s alleged killer nor any plans to get revenge.

“Me, personally, I know what I’m dealing with, with losing my brother and his family and just making sure we keep everything going,” he adds. “I don’t really think or even consider what’s going on on that side. That’s for them to figure out what they got going on.”

Von, 26, died last year following an altercation outside an Atlanta nightclub. The situation quickly escalated into gunfire, and the Chicago native was fatally shot.

Lul Tim’s involvement in the shooting was confirmed two weeks after Von died in Quando Rando’s song, “End of Story.”

“Lul Timmy riding right or wrong,” he raps, and claimed his friend was acting in self-defense, “Damn right we screaming self-defense, he shouldn’t’ve never put his hands on me/ Look at the footage, that’s all the evidence, see them p***y n***as shouldn’t’ve ran up on me.”
