Trump Rips Off His Gullible Cult Followers, Spends $650K of Their Money on Portraits of Himself

The biggest grifter who has ever occupied the White House has been exposed for yet another theft from his own loyal but gullible supporters. Donald Trump appears to have no shame whatsoever when it comes to fleecing his glassy-eyed flock. And his devoted disciples don’t seem to care much either.

Trump Baby on Cash Pile

Trump’s deceitfully named “Save America” PAC recently paid $650,000 to the Smithsonian Institution to fund portraits of himself and Melania for the National Portrait Gallery. The presidential portraits curated by the Smithsonian are generally paid for with private donations from individuals and foundations. This appears to be the first time such funding was provided by a former president’s own Political Action Committee.

What makes this especially contemptible is that Trump pitches the PAC to his cult followers by promising to use the money to elect Trumpy Republicans, to finance futile lawsuits, and to otherwise harass Democrats, mostly by posting rancorous comments on his floundering Twitter clone, Truth Social. They should know by now that, not only has Trump never allocated funds to advance his phony MAGA agenda, he has instead used them to enrich and/or exalt himself. For example…

Trump has always been consumed with exploiting others to line his own pockets. He did it with his real estate business that is now being investigated for fraud. He did it with his fake charity and university, that were shut down by the law. He did it with the presidency by making the Secret Service, and even foreign leaders, stay at his hotels. He even tried to host the annual G7 summit at his own Florida golf resort. And he’s still at it with his appeals to finance the “Big Lie” that the 2020 election was “rigged” and “stolen” from him.

Trump’s whole life has been a scam. And now he has a small contingent of worshipful suckers who are willing, and even anxious, to be swindled. They aren’t even dissuaded when evidence is produced of his rampant, pathological dishonesty. And somehow these poor saps still believe that Trump – a self professed billionaire – needs their money. As Trump would say… “SAD!”

Trump’s Lawyers Have a Shiny New Excuse for His Hoarding Classified Documents at Mar-a-Lago

The Washington Post recently published a story that revealed the trouble Donald Trump is having securing the services of any reputable attorneys. Among those who have signed on are “a Florida insurance lawyer who’s never had a federal case, a past general counsel for a parking-garage company and a former host at far-right One America News.” Not exactly the A (or even D) Team.

As a result, the legal acrobatics employed to extricate Trump from his magisterial morass are becoming ever more bizarre and harmful to his own ends. The stream of excuses given for his having bugged out of the White House with a few dozen boxes of highly sensitive national security documents have changed almost daily and often contradict each other. For instance…

  • Well, there were no documents at all.
  • Okay, there were documents but they were just personal mementos and family photos.
  • Okay, there were also documents that were official business that Trump took home to study.
  • Okay, Trump was allowed to have all of the documents, and besides, what about Obama?
  • Okay, Any classified documents were packed by someone else and Trump didn’t know what was in them.
  • Okay, the classified documents that were found were planted there by the FBI.
  • Okay, none of the documents were classified because Trump secretly declassified them.
  • Okay, they are still classified, but you can’t have them because they’re protected by attorney-client privilege.

RELATED: HUH? Trump Says Docs FBI Retrieved From Mar-a-Lago Were Covered By Attorney-Client Privilege

Now we can add a new reason for Trump absconding with these highly sensitive materials which, by the way, don’t have to be classified for Trump to be in violation of the law: He was protecting them and keeping them safe from some unspoken threat. No really. This is what his own lawyers are saying on television. Let’s start with what Christina Bobb, the former One America News host, told Laura Ingraham of Fox News:

Ingraham: Was there a limited number of people who had access to that storage room? It seems like a pretty important room, right? They made such a big deal of it.
Bobb: Yes. Certainly Mar-a-Lago is secure in and of itself. Just getting on to the compound is hard. And it was a locked door and getting back down into the basement, there’s security. You can’t just walk down there. Only certain members of staff can get there. Then there’s only one key.”

Well then, since there was a “locked door” there was surely nothing to worry about. After all, a locked door at a hotel is just as secure as the well-guarded, vault-like facilities on government property. And not just anyone can get into Mar-a-Lag. Well, unless they book a room, or are invited to a wedding, or are a Chinese spy. And is Bobb suggesting that the staff who do have access have all received security clearances?

There was another prominent Trump attorney who floated the same deranged defense for Trump’s criminal acts. Rudy Giuliani, who has his own legal problems, visited the Trump-fluffers at Newsmax and told them that…

“Now they want to make Trump responsible for having taken classified documents and preserve them. Really, if you look at the Espionage Act, it’s not really about taking the documents. It’s about destroying them or hiding them or giving them to the enemy. It’s not about taking them and putting them in a safe place that’s roughly as safe as they were in the first place.”

Well then, Trump was only being a concerned citizen seeking to protect the documents he took without permission, denied having, and refused to return after being subpoenaed. However, Giuliani is mistaken about the Espionage Act. It actually does prohibit taking such documents. And, once again, he can’t really believe that Mar-a-Lago is just as safe as the National Archives, can he?

RELATED: LOL: Trump Thinks the FBI Search of His Mar-a-Lago Bunker Has Boosted GOP Electoral Prospects

What makes the statements by both of these Trump lawyers troubling for their client is that they both amount to de facto confessions. They both admit that the documents Trump took were classified and/or required safekeeping. So, in effect, they are admitting that Trump broke the law and put the national security of the United States at risk. It will interesting to see them rebut themselves when this is brought up in court by whatever new incompetent lawyers Trump manages to dig up.

Trump Postpones Deposition with NY AG Due to Ivana’s Death, But Not His Upcoming Cult Rally

The most consistently predictable behavior by former reality TV game show host, and disgraced short-term occupant of the White House, Donald Trump, is his compulsion to turn every public affair into a solicitation for cash to enrich himself and his family. Grifting has always been the primary focus of Trump in business and politics.

Trump Baby on Cash Pile

So naturally, when the news that Trump’s first wife, Ivana, had died, it was entirely foreseeable that Trump would find ways to exploit her passing. He began immediately by sending his suckers (aka supporters) an email announcing Ivana’s death that included a link to donate to his “Save America” scam-PAC.

RELATED: GRIFTER EXPOSED: Trump Campaign Scam Defrauds Hundreds of His Supporters

However, that was just the beginning. Apparently Trump also used the demise of his ex-wife as an excuse to dodge the deposition that he was scheduled to give in the real estate fraud investigation being conducted by New York Attorney General, Letitia James.

“Former President Donald Trump and two of his children got their questioning postponed Friday in a New York civil investigation into their business dealings, a delay that follows the death of Trump’s ex-wife Ivana. […] New York Attorney General Letitia James’ office said it had agreed to postpone them because of Ivana Trump’s death, announced Thursday.”

Poor Donald is so stricken with grief at the loss of the former spouse that he repeatedly and publicly cheated on, and divorced thirty years ago, that he is incapable of answering a few questions about his corrupt business enterprise.

Not to worry though. It seems that Trump will be fully recovered the next day. He has not canceled his cult rally in Arizona on Saturday. So while his mourning is too intense to permit him to fulfil his legal obligations, it isn’t too severe to prevent him from appearing before a throng of Deplorables to disgorge the same tedious litany of lies he has been spewing for the past year and a half.

That’s right. Regaling his drooling devotees with more utterly unsupported allegations of election fraud, whining about hoaxes and witch hunts, and unleashing infantile insults at his political enemies – including insufficiently worshipful Republicans – is well within Trump’s ability during this difficult time. But replying to inquiries about his business operations – which he insists are all perfectly legal – is far too big a burden for him under these sad circumstances. And his grief hasn’t prevented him from lashing out at the House Select Committee that is investigating the January 6th insurrection that he incited.

RELATED: Crybaby Trump Whines on Newsmax About the Increasingly Incriminating January 6th Hearings

And if you believe any of that, you’re probably already firmly indoctrinated into the Trump cult and beyond the reach of logic or sanity. Enjoy your Kool-Aid.

UPDATE: Trump’s hypocrisy was revealed, so he has now postponed his Arizona grifting rally by one week. So the deposition ought to be next week as well? We’ll see.

LOCK HIM UP: Trump’s TRUTH Social Scam is Being Criminally Investigated By a Federal Grand Jury

America’s most notorious scam artist, Donald Trump, is once again the subject of a criminal investigation into his shady business dealings. It is endlessly perplexing that there are still rubes who fall for the swindles perpetrated by Trump, who has presided of multiple bankruptcies, fraudulent charities, fake universities, and grifting operations whose only purpose was to deceitfully enrich himself.

Donald Trump, Prison

The latest con game played by Trump is his already dreadfully failing Twitter ripoff, TRUTH Social. This project grew out of Trump’s desire to seek revenge on Twitter for banning him due to his repeated lying and violence-inciting disinformation. With the founding of his Trump Media and Technology Group (TMTG), the recidivist racketeer sought to further the fleecing of his dimwitted disciples.

RELATED: GRIFTER EXPOSED: Trump Campaign Scam Defrauds Hundreds of His Supporters

Part of the plot included taking the scheme public by merging with a shell company, Digital World Acquisition Corp (DWAC). Now DWAC and its board of directors have been subpoenaed by a federal Grand Jury in New York. According to CNBC

“A federal criminal investigation is threatening the proposed merger between former President Donald Trump’s social media enterprise and a special purpose acquisition company, a deal that would give the combined company access to billions of dollars in public markets.

“That company, Digital World Acquisition Corp., revealed in a securities filing Monday that it became aware on June 16 that each member of its board of directors received subpoenas from a federal grand jury in New York.”

In addition to the Grand Jury proceedings, the SEC is investigating whether TMTG and DWAC executives improperly coordinated with each other and engaged in insider trading. They have also partnered with a Chinese firm with a dubious legal past. And the SEC filing even mentions Trump’s prior business failures.

These probes have contributed to the cratering of the value of Trump’s crime vehicle, DWAC. It has declined by more than 75% since March. And that’s even after Trump began posting on TRUTH Social – or perhaps because of it. He now says that he will never return to Twitter. But like everything else he says, that can hardly be trusted. He is also appealing the dismissal of his ludicrous lawsuit alleging that Twitter violated his free speech rights by banning him.

With each new day there seems be a new crime that Trump is being investigated for. His long list of illegalities incudes financial scams, political malfeasance, and sexual assaults. And with every discovery of his legal and personal depravity, he whines that he is the victim of a “hoax” or a “witch hunt.” However, his complaints might be more credible if there weren’t so much witchcraft being revealed.

RELATED: Crybaby Trump Whines that ‘They Wanna Put Me in Jail’ – Just Because He’s a Criminal

UPDATE: It turns out that Trump bailed on his crooked company. Just weeks before the subpoenas were served, Trump removed himself and Don Jr from the board of TMTG. He is also no longer named as the company’s chairman. Unfortunately for him, all of the criminal activity took place while he was in still charge. So if he thinks he can escape legal liability, he’s going to be sorely disappointed.

Trump Could Make TRUTH Social Pay Him for Content, Even If it’s Dishonest, Illegal, or Immoral

The more we learn about Donald Trump’s Twitter clone, TRUTH Social, the more it appears to be just another in a long line of scams by Trump whose only purpose is to fatten his wallet and fleece his half-witted flock. The Trump Media & Technology Group (TMTG), his social media venture, is heading down the same corrupt path as his phony university and his fraudulent charity.

Trump Baby on Cash Pile

Mother Jones is reporting on a recent filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission by Digital World Acquisition Corp (DWAC), the shady shell company that Trump is using to give his enterprise a presence on Wall Street. And, as revealed in the filing, the terms of the licensing agreement with Trump have all of the elements of the unscrupulous brand of business affairs that are the hallmarks of Trump’s malpractice. To begin with, the filling notes that…

“TMTG’s future success will depend, to a significant extent, upon the continued presence and popularity of President Trump. If President Trump were to discontinue his relationship with TMTG due to death, disability, or any other reason, or limit his involvement with TMTG due to becoming a candidate for political office, TMTG would be significantly disadvantaged.”

Relying on Trump’s popularity is a profoundly shaky foundation for success. The twice-impeached, former reality TV game show host lost the popular vote twice and never had an approval rating that approached 50%. A majority of Americans say he’s responsible for the violent January 6th insurrection. And even 49% of Republicans don’t want him to run in 2024.

RELATED: Trump’s Cult of Republican Voters is Dwindling, but GOP Politicians and Press Remain Spellbound

What’s the more, the prospects of Trump discontinuing his relationship with his site for the reasons stated (“death, disability, or any other reason”) are almost inevitable. And in any case, Trump isn’t even obligated to post anything at all on the site. However, the filing notes that the site may be obligated to pay him for posting content. So he has wrangled another way to squeeze dough from his dimwit disciples. And the substance of the content he provides has no ethical boundaries. According the the filing…

“TMTG has entered into a license agreement with President Trump wherein neither the personal nor political conduct of President Trump, even if such conduct could negatively reflect on TMTG’s reputation or brand or be considered offensive, dishonest, illegal, immoral, or unethical, or otherwise harmful to TMTG’s brand or reputation, shall be considered a breach of the license agreement.”

That’s a necessary contractual provision with Trump, since he is notorious for “offensive, dishonest, illegal, [and] immoral” conduct. Even now the SEC is investigating whether TMTG and DWAC executives improperly coordinated with each other and engaged in insider trading. They have also partnered with a Chinese firm with a dubious legal past. And the filing even mentions Trump’s prior business failures including…

“…the bankruptcies of Trump Taj Mahal, Trump Plaza, and Trump Castle, and the failures of Trump University, Trump Vodka, and Trump Steaks, among others. […] Digital World said in its filing: A number of companies that were associated with President Trump have filed for bankruptcy. There can be no assurances that TMTG will not also become bankrupt.”

There is considerable speculation on Wall Street that Trump’s social media sham won’t ever get off the ground. DWAC stock price is down about 65% from its recent high just a couple of months ago. And while Trump has said that he won’t go back on Twitter even if Elon Musk’s bid is successful (doubtful) and his account is reinstated, he lies too much for that – or anything else he says – to be taken seriously.

RELATED: Elon Musk’s Bid for Twitter is in Big Trouble, and So is Trump’s TRUTH Social

Meanwhile, Trump’s Twitter ban defying spokes-shill, Liz Harrington, has announced that “I will soon no longer be posting on Twitter. This is a terrible website that is beyond fixing.” She doesn’t say how soon “soon” is (and she is just as likely to be lying as Trump), but the reaction in the replies to her alleged farewell announcement are enthusiastically supportive and downright gleeful:

BUSTED! Donald Trump Jr Texted Mark Meadows With Illegal Schemes to Overturn the Election

The House Select Committee investigating the January 6th insurrection continues to accumulate incriminating evidence against Donald Trump and his criminal cabal. The latest disclosure is one that snares Donnie Jr, as well as several of the coup plotters who tried to steal the election and subvert the American democracy.

Click here to Tweet this article

Donald Trump Jr

CNN is reporting that Don Jr sent text messages to his father’s White House Chief of Staff on November 5, 2020, two days after election day. The votes had not yet been counted in full and no network had called the election for Joe Biden.

RELATED: Trump Publicly Confesses to Coup Attempt in Tweet that Pence ‘Could Have Overturned the Election’

Nevertheless, the Trump gang – including such familiar names as lawyers Rudy Giuliani and John Eastman, and Fox News host Mark Levin – was already hard at work to deny voters the president of their choice. What follows are some excerpts from the CNN story:

“Two days after the 2020 presidential election, as votes were still being tallied, Donald Trump’s eldest son texted then-White House chief of staff Mark Meadows that ‘we have operational control’ to ensure his father would get a second term, with Republican majorities in the US Senate and swing state legislatures, CNN has learned.

“In the text, which has not been previously reported, Donald Trump Jr. lays out ideas for keeping his father in power by subverting the Electoral College process, according to the message reviewed by CNN. The text is among records obtained by the House select committee investigating January 6, 2021.”

“The November 5 text message outlines a strategy that is nearly identical to what allies of the former President attempted to carry out in the months that followed. Trump Jr. makes specific reference to filing lawsuits and advocating recounts to prevent certain swing states from certifying their results, as well as having a handful of Republican state houses put forward slates of fake ‘Trump electors.'”

“If all that failed, according to the Trump Jr. text, GOP lawmakers in Congress could simply vote to reinstall Trump as President on January 6.

“We have operational control Total leverage,” the message reads. “Moral High Ground POTUS must start 2nd term now.”

“‘We either have a vote WE control and WE win OR it gets kicked to Congress 6 January 2021,’ he texts Meadows.”

The schemes put forth by Trump Jr way back on November 5, 2020, were all carried out – unsuccessfully – by Trump and his co-conspirators in the weeks and months that followed. His text provides more proof that the illegal attempts at staging a coup were contrived even before the votes were all tallied or the election results were officially determined.

That, however, didn’t stop these wannabe authoritarian conspirators. And as the Committee continues to do its investigation, there will surely be further revelations about how desperate and dastardly these traitors were – and are.

Matt Gaetz Berates an FBI Official, Over Hunter Biden’s Laptop, Who Has Nothing To Do With It

Among the most disturbingly ignorant Republican members of Congress is Florida’s devout Trump-fluffer and alleged child sex trafficker, Matt Gaetz. Gaetz is notorious for his rabid defense of Trump’s “Big Lie” that the 2020 presidential election was “rigged,” and his crackpot QAnon conspiracy theories.

Click here to Tweet this article

Matt Gaetz, Marjorie Taylor Greene

On Tuesday Gaetz participated in the House Judiciary Committee’s interview of the FBI’s Cyber Division director, Bryan Vorndran. And predictably, Gaetz turned his time into a circus act that focused exclusively on the wholly fabricated GOP “scandal” surrounding the whereabouts of a laptop computer that belonged to President Biden’s son, Hunter. It’s a subject that the witness had no jurisdiction over or knowledge of. But that didn’t stop Gaetz from wasting everyone’s time and making a fool of himself.

RELATED: Matt Gaetz Inadvertently (Though Correctly) Calls Donald Trump ‘Addled’

Mr. Vorndran tried to tell Gaetz that his office wasn’t involved in anything related to the laptop. “We can do this back-and-forth for the next couple of minutes,” Vorndran said to no avail, but “I don’t have any information about the Hunter Biden laptop.” What follows is a portion of the exchange between Gaetz and Vorndran (video below):

Gaetz: So where is it? The laptop?
Vorndran: I’m not here to talk about the laptop. I’m here to talk about the FBI’s Cyber program.
Gaetz: You are the assistant director of FBI Cyber. I want to know where Hunter Biden’s laptop is. Where is it?
Vorndran: Sir, I don’t know that answer.
Gaetz: That is astonishing to me. Has FBI Cyber assessed whether or not Hunter Biden’s laptop could be a point of vulnerability, allowing America’s enemies to hurt our country?
Vorndran: The FBI’s Cyber program is based off of what is codified in Title 18, Section 1030, a code which talks about computer intrusions using nefarious intent.
Gaetz: In December 2019 they turned over this laptop to the FBI. And now you’re telling me right here is that, as the assistant director of FBI Cyber, you don’t know where this is after it was turned over to you three years ago?
Vorndran: That’s an accurate statement.
Gaetz: How are Americans supposed to trust that you can protect us from the next Colonial Pipeline if it seems that you can’t locate a laptop that was given to you three years ago from the first family potentially creating vulnerabilities for our country?
Vorndran: It’s not in the realm of my responsibilities to deal with the questions you’re asking.
Gaetz: But that is shocking that you wouldn’t, as the assistant director of Cyber, know whether or not there are international business deals, kickbacks, shakedowns, that are on this laptop that would make the First Family suspect to some sort of compromise. Mr. Assistant Director, have you assessed whether the First Family is compromised as a result of the Hunter Biden laptop?
Vorndran: As a representative of the FBI Cyber program it is not within the realm of my responsibilities.to deal with the questions that you’re asking me.

WOW! Gaetz is “astonished” and “shocked” that a man who has nothing whatsoever to do with a particular investigation doesn’t have any information about that investigation. And even after repeatedly telling Gaetz that his office is not involved in anything that might have to do with the laptop, Gaetz just repeats his ridiculously irrelevant questions with ever more bewilderment and feigned fury.

The FBI’s Cyber division deals with cybersecurity matters such as online hacking. So Gaetz blowing up at Vorndran is like getting angry at an account at Ford who is unable to tell him how a transmission works. That’s not his job.

For the record, the pseudo-scandal that Gaetz is so obsessed with concerns already debunked charges that Hunter Biden was paid $3.5 million by the wife of Moscow’s former mayor. It’s a charge that Donald Trump has tried to whip up into a wingnut frenzy. But it’s also a charge that has been investigated and found to have no merit.

RELATED: Connecting the Dots: Trump Begs Putin for Dirt on Biden While Russia Calls Trump Their Partner

PolitiFact did a deep dive on the matter and found that it was nothing more than a rumor started by Senate Republicans. Their allegations contained a key flaw concerning the Rosemont Seneca Thornton investment firm that was cited in a GOP Senate report. However, it was pointed out by Hunter Biden’s lawyer George Mesires that…

“‘Hunter Biden had no interest in and was not a co-founder of Rosemont Seneca Thornton, so the claim that he was paid $3.5 million is false,’ Mesires said in an email.”

This is typical of the sort of hyperactive and warped imagination that produces so much of Gaetz’s garbage pile of asinine accusations. In fact, Gaetz is so far over the top that he has been banned from Fox News. Imagine that. The network that has no problem with cozying up to pathological liar Donald Trump, as well as low lifes like Roger Stone, Paul Manafort, QAnon, Alex Jones, and Vladimir Putin, considers Gaetz to be below their standards. That’s really saying something.

Admission of Guilt? Trump and Family Seek to Evade Depositions Unless Granted Immunity

Donald Trump already has a public record of criminal activity that is unprecedented among American politicians. Setting aside that he has been impeached twice by Congress, he was also found to have committed fraud with his phony “university,” for which he was ordered to pay out $25 million to his victims. His crooked “charity” was shuttered and he and his family were prohibited from running any other non-profit in New York for five years. And there is still pending litigation against him by women alleging that he sexually harassed and/or assaulted them.

Donald Trump Sweating

The legal calamities that are consuming Donald Trump are continuing to pile up. He is currently under investigation by prosecutors in New York, Georgia, and Washington, D.C. He was recently hit with new allegations about his having carting off classified documents to Mar-a-Lago.

No wonder Trump is constantly whining that they wanna put me in jail.” He’s right. The “they” he’s referring to are prosecutors whose job it is to lock up criminals. And on Tuesday Trump appears to have affirmed that these prosecutors have a valid case against him and his family. According to CNN

“Former President Donald Trump and two of his children filed an appeal in their fight against the New York attorney general’s attempt to depose them as part of a civil investigation into the Trump Organization, saying a lower court erred by denying the Trumps’ request to quash their subpoenas for testimony.

“In their appeal filed Monday, Trump and his children Ivanka Trump and Donald Trump Jr. argued that if New York Attorney General Letitia James wants their testimony, she should bring them before a state grand jury investigating the Trump Organization, where witnesses receive transactional immunity for their testimony in New York. […]

“James said in court filings in January that her office’s civil investigation had uncovered significant evidence that the Trump Organization used ‘fraudulent or misleading asset valuations to obtain a host of economic benefits, including loans, insurance coverage and tax deductions’ and that financial statements had numerous ‘misleading statements and omissions.'”

So Trump and his crime family are suing the New York Attorney General to keep from having to give depositions in the case against them unless they are granted immunity. To be clear, this is not a situation where they are resisting subpoenas to testify for fear of self-incrimination. For that they could simply appear and take the Fifth. In this filing they are willing to testify, but are insisting that they be immunized for whatever incriminating information they divulge.

That’s tantamount to a confession that their testimony contains evidence of real crimes. They actually want to testify with immunity so that they can be assured that there will never be any consequences for their unlawful behavior. However, AG Letitia James, isn’t having it. She tweeted that…

“Donald Trump, Donald Trump, Jr., and Ivanka Trump were ordered by a judge to comply with our investigation into Mr. Trump and the Trump Organization’s financial dealings. Despite their appeal of this order, no one can stop our pursuit of justice, no matter how powerful they are.”

It is a rather remarkable thing that a former president and his kin are pleading for immunity in a case that involves their deliberate misrepresentation of their business and its finances. There is abundant evidence of malfeasance gathered from both documents and witnesses. But nothing says “guilty” as definitively as a defendant begging for immunity in exchange for spilling the beans. Who knows, we may even see Trump vs. Trump as the rats try to snitch on each other to avoid prison. Keep the popcorn ready, folks.

Fox News Buries Story on Accounting Firm Quitting Trump, Declaring 10 Years of Finances ‘Unreliable’

On Monday Donald Trump’s longtime accounting firm announced that they were discontinuing their association with Trump and disavowing his financial reporting for the past ten years as “unreliable.” This comes as Trump is under investigation by the New York Attorney General for lying about the value of his financial assets.

Donald Trump Fox News

The Mazars accounting firm’s unprecedented termination of Trump as a client, along with their notice that ten years of his financial reports “should not be relied on,” is a jaw dropping development. It foretells a financial fiasco for the deeply indebted former reality TV game show host. And it suggests that Mazars is cooperating with legal authorities to provide more incriminating information.

Despite the explosive magnitude of this story, Fox News has completely ignored it. There was no mention of it on any of their primetime programs Monday night. There is still no mention of it on their website. It’s almost as if Fox News is purposefully trying to make the story disappear because it reflects so disastrously on Dear Leader Trump. Ya think?

In place of the Mazars story that would ordinarily dominate the news cycle at a journalistically credible operation, Fox News is relentlessly plugging a story that has absolutely no substantive news value. That story concerns a filing by the flagrantly partisan special counsel, John Durham, that rambles on tediously about an attorney who reported suspicious Internet activity between Trump and Russian computer networks.

Fox News has been completely distorting the Durham Nothingburger to falsely claim that it proves that Hillary Clinton was spying on Trump. There is no truth to that whatsoever, and the filing doesn’t even make that allegation. But that didn’t stop Sean Hannity from fictionalizing the story. He ranted that…

“Here’s where this is even worse than Watergate. Not only did they hack into the opposing campaign and steal material like in the case of Watergate, but then they hacked into the office of the president of this great country, according to Durham’s blockbuster filing late Friday.”

To be clear, no one hacked into Trump’s campaign, and no one stole any materials. Nor did anyone hack into the office of the president, and Durham never alleged that they did. Nevertheless, Trump is furious that other news networks weren’t fooled by Durham’s fact-free deflection. And so is Fox News…

It’s ironic that Fox is so outraged by the media properly passing on the Durham probe fabrications, when they are so flagrantly ignoring the real story about Trump’s financial corruption. It’s just more proof that Fox has never been a news network. And it’s why their audience is so pitifully uninformed, or even worse, misinformed, about everything from the Biden economic boom, to the COVID pandemic, to the 2020 presidential election, and so much more. They are the “New Ignorati.” And that’s exactly how Fox News wants them.

IT’S A DISGRACE! Trump is Terrified that the Jan 6 Insurrection Committee Wants Ivanka to Testify

Last week was a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad week for Donald Trump. It began with his favorite propaganda outlet losing it’s biggest distributor. DirecTV announced that they would cease to carry the One America News Network. The Trump-fluffing, conspiracy spewing OAN derived the vast majority of their revenue from DirecTV and this development puts its future in jeopardy.

Donald Trump Sweating

However, Trump’s legal woes were even more catastrophic. The Supreme Court rejected his request to keep his records secret. The New York Attorney General took action to force his testimony in the real estate and tax fraud case. A Georgia district attorney impaneled a special grand jury to probe his efforts to intimidate state officials to overturn their election results. And a bunch of his StormTrumpers (aka Oath Keepers) were indicted for seditious conspiracy for their roles in the January 6th insurrection in Washington, D.C.

Further unsettling Trump’s already unstable mental state, is that the House Select Committee investigating January 6th made a formal request for Trump’s daughter Ivanka to testify before the panel. According to CNN the request “revealed explosive new details about the former President’s actions in the days leading up to and on January 6.”

So naturally, Trump has lashed out against the Committee, which he has been doing for weeks. This time his wrath came in an interview with the ultra-rightist Washington Examiner, Trump raged that…

“They are using whatever powers they have. They couldn’t care less. They are vicious people. [and that] It’s a disgrace, what’s going on. They’re using these things to try and get people’s minds off how incompetently our country is being run. And they don’t care. They’ll go after children.”

Trump went on to assert that the investigations against him set “a very bad precedent because it can happen the other way also.” That was a thinly veiled threat aimed at Hunter Biden, the son of President Biden.

For the record, Ivanka Trump is hardly a child. She is a 40 year old businesswoman who held the post of White House Counselor to the President (her father) for four years. She was an eyewitness to Trump’s activities before, during, and after the riots at the Capitol. Her testimony is unquestionably relevant, and her evasion creates suspicion. She is only being asked to provide her account of what happened, and she is not being charged with anything (yet). On the other hand, Trump is threatening Hunter Biden (who has has never had a political job) with criminal prosecution for allegations that have already been investigated.

As usual, Trump’s protestations reflect his fears. The guy who used his office to plot an anti-democratic coup is complaining that Democrats “are using whatever powers they have.” And if Democrats were using all of their powers they would already have had their Attorney General indict Trump, or fired him and appointed an acting Attorney General to do it.

Unlike Trump, Democrats are using their powers legally and in full public view. And as for trying to “get people’s minds off” of other matters, that’s precisely what Trump is doing with this outburst. He doesn’t want people to pay any attention to the avalanche of devastating disclosures that are burying him and his crime family. It is a tactic that he resorts to any time he is in trouble and afraid. Which lately, is almost all the time.
