The Alamogordo Daily News reports the Mescalero Apache Tribe announced Monday that Couy Griffin is no longer allowed on tribal land following a video disseminated by Griffin via the Cowboys for Trump Facebook page. One video showed Griffin getting a blessing where he says. “Bring it on Nancy Pelosi,” in a reference to the Democratic House speaker. Another video, since deleted, contained tribal members making accusations against the tribe. Griffin faced criticism in July for making racist comments about Black NFL players.
