A homeless Columbia, SC man is being praised for coming to the rescue of a female police officer who was struggling with a suspect Tuesday.

Cray Turmon was caught on video jumping into the scary situation where the officer had been knocked down after tasing and using pepper spray on the suspect, 39-year-old Donald Songster Brown. Turmon tackled Brown, allowing the officer to handcuff him.

“She’s a woman slammed to the ground and she’s an officer. I saw her belongings hit the ground. She’d done everything she could. It was going to get ugly, you know? Something had to be done,” Turmon told WACH.

He added, “Someone’s got to stand up. Someone told me if you don’t stand up for something, you’ll fall for anything. So I stood for something yesterday.”

Turmon is working to get his life together after losing his license, job and home due to DUI arrests.

The Columbia Police Department honored Turmon Wednesday with a certificate for his “extraordinary actions to preserve life and aid public safety.”

“It just felt good to actually have the law pat me on my back,” Turmon said.

Per WLTX, Brown has been charged with attempted murder, armed robbery, kidnapping, possession of a weapon during the commission of a violent crime and resisting arrest.

Friday on MSNBC, network host Katy Tur said it was “laughable” that President Donald Trump had only had one solo press conference in his first year.

Tur said, “He’s been dodging questions from the press for months now, really. He hasn’t had a press conference since what, February?”

She continued, “That is laughable. It’s laughable, Chris, that the president can’t stand in front of the press and take questions from the press. Other presidents — I mean, he is accessible in the Oval Office, he’s accessible in these gaggles, he’s accessible when you shout questions to him on the White House lawn, yes. But a formal press conference, where you take multiple questions on a variety of topics, he has not done. It’s whatever news of the day when he feels like talking to reporters. That’s I guess a level of transparency if you want to argue it, but it’s not true transparency.”

While teasing a segment on Thursday’s edition of MSNBC’s “Hardball,” host Chris Matthews stated that Wednesday’s event at the White House celebrating the passage of the GOP tax bill looked like “a North Korean parade.”

Matthews said, “Up next, could yesterday’s display at the White House, the pigout over the tax cut — trouble — be trouble for the russia investigation? republicans had no problem lavishing praise on this president with those same — look at them all up there like lemmings. Are they going to back him on the — on firing Mueller? Look at them, looks like a North Korean parade.”

On Thursday’s broadcast of CNN’s “AC360,” CNN Senior Legal Analyst and New Yorker Staff Writer Jeffrey Toobin argued that President Trump should worship the ground former FBI Director James Comey walks on because Comey did “probably more than anyone” to make Trump the president.

Toobin said Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton is the one who has a complaint over how the investigation into her emails was handled, given that her campaign was seemingly “destroyed on the eve of the election by the fact that James Comey felt compelled to announce that the investigation was re-opened, which turned out to be a big nothing. That’s the person with the real grievance here. Donald Trump should be worshiping the ground that James Comey walked on. Because he, probably more than anyone, made him president of the United States.”

Thursday on MSNBC’s “The Beat With Ari Melber,” former Obama administration official Ron Klain claimed the so-called Resistance movement “stopped” President Donald Trump from building his proposed wall on the U.S.-Mexico border.

Klain said, “What has been fascinating about 2017 is how much of the energy of the resistance is coming from the men and women in the street. It started with the Women’s March on the day after Trump’s inauguration right through the Me Too movement this year, and mostly through the overall Resistance movement. And it’s been a popular movement.”

He added, “I think we are going to look back at 2017 the way people now look back at 1968 as a year of protest, a year of people getting activated. And those protests have had results. We stopped Trump from building the wall, Obamacare is still alive, the numbers out today show as many people have signed up this year as last year, some of the worst people have been run out of the White House. We had huge victories in Virginia and shockingly in Alabama. I think it has been an incredible year of protest and change from grassroots through resistance.”

Wednesday on MSNBC’s “MTP Daily,” Sen. Chris Coons (D-DE) said it was “premature” to discuss impeaching President Donald Trump because he has not “seen the sorts of evidence that would justify it at this point.”

Coons said, “I’m not calling for the president’s impeachment at this point because I don’t think we’ve seen the sorts of evidence that would justify it at this point. I’m a political realist. It’s a Republican-controlled House and Senate. Impeachment won’t move forward unless there is something that shocks the conscience of the average American and persuades a majority of Republicans this president committed high crimes and misdemeanors. It’s premature to even discuss that.”

Wednesday, on CNN’s “AC360,” Representative Jim Jordan (R-OH) argued most of Special Counsel Bob Mueller’s team opposes Trump and the Clintons paid Russians to influence the 2016 election.

Jordan said, “We know, for a fact, the Clinton campaign paid Russians to do what? To influence the election. And yet we’ve had this months-long investigation by Bob Mueller with no evidence that President Trump worked with Russians in any way.”

He later added, “It’s not the anti-Trump messages that bother me about Peter Strzok. Most of Mueller’s team is anti-Trump. We know that. What concerns me is the intent to carry out a plan to disrupt the election. Because as Mr. Strzok said, we can’t afford to leave this in we the people’s hands. That is a problem.”

On Wednesday’s broadcast of CNN’s “The Lead,” Senator Jeff Flake (R-AZ) stated that the bipartisan group of senators negotiating a DACA fix understands additional border security elements will be part of a DACA deal, but argued that chain migration is something that should be dealt with only as it pertains to DACA enrollees and a comprehensive chain migration change is an issue “for another time.”

Flake said, “[T]he bipartisan group that is negotiating this DACA fix recognizes that additional border security elements will be in this package. But, yeah, we can go too far. For example, take something like chain migration, that’s something that we dealt with in the Gang of Eight bill, in the comprehensive bill that we did, but with regard to the DREAMers, we’ll deal with it only as it pertains to those kids. So, a lot of these issues are for another time. We’d like to get back to comprehensive immigration reform, but this isn’t the place for it.”

Wednesday, Sen. Mark Warner (D-VA), the ranking Democratic member of the Senate Intelligence Committee, warned President Donald Trump that firing FBI special counsel Robert Mueller or “interfering with his investigation by issuing pardons” could provoke a “constitutional crisis.”

Warner said, “Firing Mr. Mueller or any other of the top brass involved in this investigation would not only call into question this administration’s commitment to the truth, but also to our most basic concept, rule of law. It also has the potential to provoke a constitutional crisis. In the United States of America, no one, no one is above the law, not even the president.”

He added, “Congress must make clear to the president that firing the special counsel or interfering with his investigation by issuing pardons of essential witnesses is unacceptable and would have immediate and significant consequences.”

On Wednesday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “All In,” Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) reacted to corporations announcing they will give their employees bonuses and increase capital investment after the passage of the GOP tax bill by stating the companies already had enough profits to do so if they wanted to and the moves are simply political.

Warren said, “I want to be absolutely clear. I am delighted when workers get more money. I’m glad when it happens at any corporation in America. Yay. But let’s be really clear, if these corporations had wanted to do that, they already had plenty of profits to do it. The idea that this is trickle-down economics at work, rather than just plain-old politics is just wrong. The corporate CEOs have already told us what they’re going to do with this money. I’ll give you an example. Home Depot, right after the Senate passed the tax bill a couple of weeks ago, Home Depot CEO is — executive is interviewed and said, ‘So, what are you going to do with all of this money that Home Depot has? Because they’re going to do really well on this.’ Was it, ‘We’re going to raise wages for our employees?’ Um, no. Was it, ‘We’re going to hire more employees at the Home Depot stores?’ Um, no. Was it, ‘We’re going to build more Home Depots across America?’ Um, no. They said, ‘What we’re going to do is we’re going to do stock buybacks.’ In other words, we’re going to use whatever money comes in to pump up the price of our stock. That works really well for CEOs, and it works really well for wealthy investors. That’s what the game is about for these guys, what they care about is getting this money in so they can boost their stocks prices.”
