CHUCK NORRIS NOT AT U.S. CAPITOL RIOT: MANAGER
NEW YORK (AP) – Seeing isn’t always believing. Just ask the manager for actor Chuck Norris, who is responding to online talk that the “Walker, Texas Ranger” star was among those who stormed the U.S. Capitol a week ago. Images circulating online show someone who looked like Norris, who backed President Donald Trump when he ran for president in 2016. But Norris’ manager Erik Kritzer tells The Associated Press the actor was home on his Texas range with his family last week – not in the nation’s capital. Kritzer acknowledges the person seen in pictures favors Norris – but the manager says his client “is much more handsome.”
