Knife-wielding 'senator' tries to reach Ivanka Trump in Trump Tower

A knife-wielding man claiming to be a US Senator who wanted to talk to Ivanka Trump about her dress line was arrested at Trump Tower in New York City.

Police said the man, Adames Benitez, was stopped outside the building in Manhattan Thursday evening.

When the agents realized he was wearing a bulletproof vest under his shirt, they searched him and discovered he was carrying two throwing knives.

Benitez was arrested at the scene and charged with criminal possession of a weapon and criminal possession of a forged instrument for a fake New York State I.D. card he was in possession of.

Police took Benitez to NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center for psychiatric evaluation.

Governor McAuliffe won't stop execution plan
United Nations experts on executions and mental health support clemency along with some Virginia legislators and others . Their joint appeal to the Governor of Virginia was issued ahead of the planned execution of Morva by lethal injection.

He was prevented from getting in to the building at about 4 p.m. when Secret Service noticed the ballistic vest under his jacket, police said.

Ivanka worked for her billionaire-father's company before Trump was elected president and is now an unpaid White House adviser.

The first daughter herself was not in Trump Tower at the time, but rather in Hamburg, Germany, for the G20 summit.

Though (for some reason) this is the first directly Trump-related post we've done in almost a week, don't let that push you to start tuning out the reality TV president's daily atrocities.
