Harvard doc reveals Trump’s proprietary vitamin regimen was a comically inept scam

Published

on

Would you pay money to get a concoction of vitamins every month from Donald Trump? Hopefully you wouldn’t, but apparently some people did exactly that in the late 2000s and early 2010s, according to a new report from The Daily Beast. And guess what? A Harvard doctor tells the publication that the entire program was a comically inept scam.

“For several years in the late 2000s and early 2010s, Donald Trump encouraged people to take part in a pseudo-scientific vitamin scheme—all without expressing any concern about how it might potentially endanger people’s health,” The Daily Beast writes. “Through a multi-level marketing project called The Trump Network, the business mogul encouraged people to take an expensive urine test, which would then be used to personally ‘tailor’ a pricey monthly concoction of vitamins.”

Harvard doctor Pieter Cohen, who specializes in analyzing nutritional supplements, took one look at a 12-page monograph that the Trump Network provided to prove the scientific worth of its vitamin regimen and concluded it was a massive scam almost immediately.

“There is zero evidence that is actually doing what they say it was,” he tells The Daily Beast. “This is a scam, it’s a bogus program to make profit for the people who are selling it. It’s fantasy.”

Janet Helm, a nutritionist and registered dietitian, shares Cohen’s assessment of the validity of the Trump vitamin program, which she referred to as “mumbo jumbo.” She also says this is much more potentially dangerous than some of Trump’s other failed ventures such as Trump Steaks.

“If you want a steak or a wine with Trump’s name on it, that’s fine — but if you want to play around with your health and have someone try to sell you something because they think they need to sell you pills, that’s something entirely different,” she tells The Daily Beast.

WATCH: DC protesters turn over ‘agitator’ to police — then the agitators try to start a fight with cops

Published

on

Protesters in Washington, D.C. were captured on video handing over an agitator to police, while other agitators in paintball tactical gear appeared to try and start fights with police.

Former FBI assistant director of counterintelligence, Frank Figliuzzi, revealed that his former colleagues and law enforcement he knows recognize that far-right agitators are attempting to start significant conflicts between police and protesters.

"There is a minimal presence of Antifa, but a far more disturbing presence of right-wing race-based hate groups, such as the Boogaloo Boys who think there will be a race-based civil war coming," he said on MSNBC.

Trump could use Antifa conspiracy theories to ‘investigate his political opponents’: Ex-FBI assistant director

Published

on

According to former FBI assistant director for counterintelligence Frank Figliuzzi, there are far more white supremacists and anti-government agitators infiltrating the peaceful Black Lives Matter protests than Antifa. He fears Trump will use Antifa as an excuse to investigate his political opponents.

Speaking to MSNBC on Sunday evening, Figliuzzi told host Brian Williams that his sources in law enforcement are telling him that President Donald Trump doesn't have his facts straight on Antifa.

"We're seeing components of legitimate frustrated protesters responding to Mr. Floyd's demise and others," explained Figliuzzi. "Then we are seeing people who are exploiting this for their own purposes, and some of them are more than just opportunistic criminals. Some of them are organized, and some of them have diverse agendas but are coming together to wreak havoc. And I think what we need to pay attention to here is what we have evidence of, what we don't have evidence of, and what we're hearing from the White House and the attorney general."

Published

Twitter couldn't help but notice that President Donald Trump was talking tough while hiding in his underground bunker.

The New York Times reported Sunday that Trump was rushed to the underground bunker that has only been used during the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks when passenger planes were headed to Washington, D.C. Trump, by contrast, didn't experience a terrorist threat, a few hundred protesters surrounded the White House complex, which is blocked off by several fences and surrounded by Secret Service and police.

It was something that many noticed contrasted with former Vice President Joe Biden, who spent Sunday listening to the concerns from protesters on the streets of his hometown.
