A campaign staffer for independent presidential candidate Robert F Kennedy Jr was terminated after telling a group of Republican voters that beating President Joe Biden was her "number one priority" and encouraging them to volunteer for Donald Trump.

Garcia's lawsuit, filed in county court in Austin, Texas, names as defendants Fox News, Newsmax, Univision, Steven Crowder and his Louder with Crowder media company, podcaster Tim Pool's company Timcast Media Group, host of InfoWars' War Room Owen Shroyer, Jason Lee's podcast company Hollywood Unlocked, Today News Africa, and that outlet's White House correspondent Simon Ateba. Each of the defendants is accused of having "recklessly disregarded basic journalistic safeguards" by publishing "the photo of an innocent man, branding him as a neo-Nazi murderer to his local community and the nation at large" in reports dated May 7 through 9, 2023. Several of the defendants are accused of not just showing a photograph of the plaintiff Garcia and identifying him as the shooter, like Fox News is accused of doing on their website, but also using his appearance to attempt to cast doubt on reports about the shooter's neo-Nazi ideology

"It was so much, and so interesting, and so vicious and horrible, and so beautiful in so many different ways"it represented such a big portion of the success of this country," he continued. Gettysburg, wow"I go to Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, to look and to watch," he said. "And the statement of Robert E. Lee, who's no longer in favor"did you ever notice it? He's no longer in favor. 'Never fight uphill, me boys, never fight uphill.' They were fighting uphill, he said, 'Wow, that was a big mistake,' he lost his big general. 'Never fight uphill, me boys,' but it was too late," Trump added.

During the discussion, host Olga Skabeeva interjected into the conversation about the House speaker to say, "That would be our Johnson."
