Father of Bristol’s newborn daughter sues for child support — so Sarah Palin goes bonkers

Published

on

Abstinence activist Bristol Palin was sued for child support as well as joint custody of her newborn daughter by a Kentucky Medal of Honor recipient saying he is the girl’s father, WKYT-TV reported.

Dakota Meyer was engaged to the reality TV star until last May. Shortly afterwards, the younger Palin announced that she was pregnant with her second child, saying that the pregnancy was intentional.

The girl, Sailor Grace Palin, was born on Dec. 23. Meyer shared a picture of her on Instagram, writing, “Best Christmas present ever!! I couldn’t be more proud of this little blessing.”

Besides child support, the lawsuit also demands that Meyer be allowed to list the girl as a dependent on his income tax returns in alternating years. Bristol Palin has earned as much as $262,000 as a public speaker regarding teen pregnancy. Her mother, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (R), quickly denounced Meyer’s lawsuit as his attempt to “save face.”

“For many months we have been trying to reach out to Dakota Myers, [sic]” the former vice-presidential nominee said in a statement to Entertainment Tonight. “He has wanted nothing to do with either Bristol’s pregnancy or the baby.”

A spokesperson for Bristol Palin, identified as David Martin, also took a potshot at Meyer, saying, “My values are such that a real American hero doesn’t ask for child support.”

Republicans love the Constitution — until it applies to them: Conservative columnist

Published

on

Conservative Washington Post columnist Max Boot unleashed on President Donald Trump's latest scandal he's calling Ukraine-gate. But when it comes to Republicans, he called them outright complicit.

In his Sunday column, Boot noted that a mob boss doesn't have to overtly say “pay up, or we will destroy your store” to be guilty of extortion. In Trump's case, he tends to say things in a way that it is understood what he wants people to do, according to former "fixer" Michael Cohen.

Hate for Trump sets new record of Americans who can’t stand a president

Published

on

A new poll shows a record number of Americans can't stand the president of the United States.

According to the most recent NBC News/Wall Street Journal public opinion poll, an astounding 69 percent of Americans don't like Trump personally.

During the early 2000s, President George W. Bush enjoyed the benefit of Americans finding him likable and wanting to "have a beer" with the sober leader. That measure of "likability" has been a kind of inspiration for political leaders searching for voters based not on issues but on personality.
