Eric Trump becomes second Trump to appear on radio show with ties to white nationalism

Published

on

Eric Trump appeared on a radio program with ties to white nationalist James Edwards on Wednesday, proving yet again that the Trump campaign doesn’t seem too concerned about its image, according to Right Wing Watch. He’s the second Trump to do so.

The young Trump spoke with “Liberty Roundtable” host Sam Bushman about Tuesday’s vice presidential debate, as well as how his father will save America’s “inner cities.”

The Trump campaign came under fire earlier this year when Donald Jr. appeared on the same program but was interviewed by Edwards, who was called in by Bushman as another guest.

Edwards is the host of the racist radio show “The Political Cesspool,” which he founded in 2005 just outside of Memphis, Tennessee.

The show’s mission statement suggests that it “stands for the Dispossessed Majority” and is “pro-white,” according to the Southern Poverty Law Center.

However, the radio host told the Huffington Post in March that he and his team “reject media descriptions of our work as ‘white supremacist,’ ‘pro-slavery’ and other such scare words.”

After appearing on “Liberty Roundtable” with Bushman and Edwards earlier this year, Donald Jr. was under fire for agreeing to speak on the show with the white nationalist.

He denied knowing that Edwards would be on the show or that he had any knowledge of his background, claiming “He was brought into the interview without my knowledge.” He added, “Had I known, I would have obviously never done an interview with him,” Bloomberg reported at the time.

Now that Eric spoke on the same radio talk show on which his brother appeared, it would seem that the Trump campaign isn’t even trying to distance itself from the white nationalist movement.

Expert: NRA had to be obliterated by New York for one very important reason

Published

on

The New York attorney general's aggressive moves against the National Rifle Association might have been handled by the U.S. Department of Justice, according to a former federal prosecutor.

State attorney general Letitia James filed a lawsuit to dissolve the powerful lobbying group over claims of rampant fraud, but former U.S. Attorney Barbara McQuade's new column for The Daily Beast calls out the Justice Department's inaction.

"Like other cases of corruption, this easily could have been framed as a criminal case," McQuade wrote. "Filing false registration and disclosure documents as part of a scheme to defraud can serve as the basis for federal mail or wire fraud, and often does in public corruption cases. When I served as a federal prosecutor, my former office brought public corruption cases on such theories in similar cases in which officials misused funds for personal benefit."

Trump-loving media’s attacks on Joe Biden have all been epic flops so far: data

Published

on

Pro-Trump media websites have been trying to pull the same trick on Joe Biden that they pulled on Hillary Clinton in 2016 -- but so far, none of their attacks on the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee have gained traction.

Axios reports that data from right-wing news websites shows that reader engagement on three key anti-Biden stories -- his alleged mental decline, his son Hunter Biden's former job with Ukrainian energy company Burisma, and sexual assault allegations by Tara Reade -- have all fizzled.

Trump aides frustrated by his ‘nonsensical’ Biden attacks in Ohio: AP reporter

Published

on

During a segment on MSNBC's "Morning Joe," Associated Press White House correspondent Jonathan Lemire stated that aides close to President Donald Trump thought the president made some good points about the U.S. economy on Thursday -- only to have his message overlooked when he attacked former Vice President Joe Biden.

Speaking with co-host Willie Geist, Lemire said there were other problems with the Ohio visit -- including Republican Gov. Mike DeWine being unable to attend because he tested positive for COVID-19 -- but Trump stating Biden "hurts God" made the economic points the president made secondary in a state where he needs votes.
