Lottery winner claims prize in “Scream” mask to hide identity

Some lottery winners go to great lengths to remain anonymous — and one person who hit the jackpot just took that to a scary new level. A winner of the Super Lotto in Jamaica wore a mask form the 1996 horror movie “Scream” to pick up his grand prize last week.

As part of his regularly-scheduled executive time, Trump weighed in on the multiple scandals engulfing Virginia politics this past week, and gave his expert opinion on the black community’s feelings on the matter:

The South African police service’s crack unit, The Hawks, have denied claims that they have a personal vendetta against popular church leader and Malawi-born Pastor Shepherd Bushiri of the Pretoria-based Enlightened Christian Gathering (ECG) church.”People will always talk. Let them talk because we are here to work. That is our duty‚” police spokesperson Hangwani Mulaudzi said of the accusations on Monday.

He added: “We don’t look at who we are investigating and the state of the person. If you start doing that‚ you are making a mistake.”
