EXPOSED: Praisers of Trump University are rolling in Trump’s money, report finds

Published

on

The Associated Press reporters Michael Biesecker and Jeff Horwitz weren’t swayed by the “testimonials” offered about Trump University. The video  was produced by the Trump campaign, and featured a number of “Trump University graduates” who claimed that their experiences had been top-notch. Turns out, those who appeared in the video had other ties to Trump that made it beneficial to “testify” on Trump’s behalf.

Casey Hoban claimed to have received “incalculable” profits after attending a two-day seminar. “Not disclosed by the campaign is that Hoban is also a Trump family acquaintance whose protein-infused water is stocked at Trump’s golf courses, restaurants and resorts,” the AP reported.

Michelle Gunn is another happy customer of Trump University. She claimed to have earned money immediately, and muses on camera that the difference between her successful experience and the experiences of most of those who gave Trump thousands of dollars in tuition comes down to character. “You have to go out and make it happen,” she says.

“Not mentioned by the campaign is that the celebrity billionaire previously endorsed a self-help book authored by Gunn’s teenage son, titled “Schooled for Success: How I Plan to Graduate from High School a Millionaire.” A website promoting the book also features a photo of a smiling Houston Gunn posing with Trump in what appears to be the then reality TV star’s Trump Tower office.

A third testimonial comes from Kent Moyer, who claims that the experiences with Trump led to him enrolling in the prestigious Wharton School of Business, the school that Donald Trump happens to be an alumnus of. Turns out? Perhaps Mr. Moyer overstated his relationship to Wharton:

“Moyer has described himself in media appearances and in written materials as an alumnus of the Wharton School, of which Trump and some of his children are graduates. Moyer clarified to the AP that he had attended two-week executive seminars offered by Wharton and had never been academically enrolled as a student at the university. He does not have a bachelor’s degree.”

Trump spent 45 minutes talking with cast of right-wing play dramatizing ‘Deep State’ conspiracy theories: report

Published

The coronavirus emergency has given President Donald Trump one of the most daunting tests of his administration, with less than a year to go before he stands for re-election.

And yet in the midst of all the chaos, one thing the president found time to do on Thursday was meet with the cast of a bizarre right-wing play dramatizing the supposed "deep state" plot at the FBI to frame Trump in the Russia investigation.

According to The Daily Beast, Trump spent 45 minutes talking with the people behind "FBI Lovebirds: Undercovers," which focuses on the affair between FBI officials Peter Strzok and Lisa Page. The leading roles of Strzok and Page were played by Dean Cain, the former Superman actor, and Kristy Swanson, who played the starring role in the 1992 Buffy the Vampire Slayer movie.

All US Navy ships in the Pacific near countries with coronavirus ordered to self-quarantine for 14 days

Published

CNN National Security reporter Ryan Browne tweeted Thursday that the U.S. Navy has ordered all of its vessels in the Pacific that have been near countries with COVID-19, also known as the coronavirus, "to remain at sea for at least 14 days before pulling into another port in order to monitor sailors for any symptoms of the virus."

Health experts have said that the two-week period should give enough time for infected people to become aware that they are sick.

The highly-contagious disease has spread very quickly in South Korea and California after public exposure. The first person verified with "community-spread" transmission was identified just outside of Sacramento, California.

‘Most wicked to ever represent Cleveland’: Jim Jordan ripped by hometown paper for covering up sex scandal

Published

on

President Trump likes to call his enemies 'sleaze bags" and Ohio GOP Rep. Jim Jordan a "warrior," but according to Cleveland Plain Dealer columnist Brent Larkin, Trump has it backward.

While Jordan may not seem like the worse politician to ever come out of Ohio, the "crimes" he's committed "don't involve felonies," according to Larkin. "They are crimes against America, crimes involving total disregard for the principles of democracy, trampling the truth on behalf of a corrupt president who revels in his inhumanity."

Watching Jordan question witnesses during the House impeachment inquiry particularly incensed Larkin, who writes that it was like watching a man who "spent his childhood gleefully ripping wings off flies."
