Chattanooga Bus Driver's Mother Defends Son By Saying Crash That Killed 5 Children Was 'God's Will'

no title

The first images we saw of the Chattanooga, Tennessee school bus crash that claimed the lives of five elementary aged children were haunting.

But we were even more horrified to learn driver Johnthony Walker had been "driving the school bus at a high rate of speed, well above the posted speed limit" and even reportedly asked the children if they were "ready to die."

Now at least one person is defending Walker — his mother, Gwenevere Cook. In an interview with NBC News following the crash, she said her son tried to save children from the wreckage. Unfortunately, she also said:

"My heart of love is going out to all that were in harm's way in this horrible accident of God's will… I pray we all can get this some way without judging my son. It happened. God don't make mistakes. We do."

Is she trying to excuse her son for getting these children killed because everything that happens is because of God? Really? She's trying to throw God under the bus??

Thankfully, the police aren't taking the "God's will" approach. Walker is being charged with five counts of vehicular homicide.

You can hear Gwenevere's odd defense of her son (below):

We have no words.

A Tennessee school bus driver was charged with vehicular homicide after speeding around a curb and crashing the bus full of children into a tree.

The most bone-chilling part of the report was the final words of the driver before killing five children and injuring 23 more, which were reportedly: "Are y'all ready to die?"

Selena Gomez

Good for her!

As you know, Selena Gomez is taking a break from the spotlight in order to manage "anxiety, panic attacks, and depression" — and now we're learning the 24-year-old has been recovering in a "private and quiet" but "super intense" Tennessee treatment facility in order to focus on self-care.

Take your time, bb!

A source close to the Hands To Myself singer tells Us Weekly:

"Selena is dealing with lupus, but this break is to focus on her mental health. She can go to a very dark place."

Watch This Congressional Candidate Try To Explain Why His 'Make America White Again' Sign Is Definitely NOT Racist…

This is insane.

This guy. Wow.

Rick Tyler is coming under fire — as he should be — for posting campaign signs that say "Make America White Again."

Naturally, people are pissed that the candidate for Tennessee's 3rd congressional district seat would proudly display such a racist billboard during his campaign.

However, the independent politician is actually trying to argue that he didn't intend for the poster to be racist.

Um, excuse us?!

The sign LITERALLY says "Make America White Again." What about that ISN'T racist?!
