There was speculation about whether Russian oligarchs were coming after him for ripping off the Trump campaign, for which he's accused of laundering $170 million, to finance his lavish lifestyle. Then there was the speculation that he was trying to distract the media from the unraveling Trump campaign. The reality turned out to be just plain gross and sad... the police were called by his wife, who accused him of beating her before grabbing a gun, which caused her to flee the house:
For nearly three years we have been building a juggernaut campaign (Death Star). It is firing on all cylinders. Data, Digital, TV, Political, Surrogates, Coalitions, etc.— Brad Parscale (@parscale) May 7, 2020

She started saying all this ****... the call of the serial abuser. My gut feeling is that the manipulative creep threatened to turn the gun on himself to distract from pulling the gun on his wife. At any rate, if he is genuinely suicidal, I hope he gets the help that he needs and lives a long life, most of it spent in prison. This isn't the only MAGA domestic violence story to hit the news. An attendee of the right-wing rally in Portland who attacked a Black journalist has a history of domestic violence. Trump's White House staff has had a domestic violence problem. As bad as racism is in this society, I firmly believe that misogyny is an even bigger problem (the two usually go together like untreated sewage and cholera). The whole culture is toxic, this is what we have to vote out and, when that is done, root out.
