Published

Kyle O’Brien was fired from his job at a Missoula Nissan Hyundai dealership in Montana after he posted on social media about refusing services to someone with a Hillary Clinton bumper sticker, the Missoulian reports.

According to the company’s regional operations director, Nick Griffin, O’Brien posted a photo on his Facebook in which he is posing in front of a car with Clinton bumper stickers with his middle finger raised. In his post, he said he refused his services because of the bumper stickers.

Griffin said, “This employee no longer works at our dealership. We apologize for his comments as they do not reflect the business practice or the values of our business or the dedicated team of employees who work here.”

Griffin explained that the team includes people of various politica views. “We all work together well and we respect each other’s opinions and views, and we respect the opinions and views of our customers,” Griffin said.

“And unfortunately, one employee’s views being published on Facebook do not reflect us as a team,” he added. Regarding the company’s decision to terminate O’Brien, Griffin said, “We just felt like it was best for the situation.”

While O’Brien’s post was among milder vulgar posts, it contributes to a broader culture of fear and violence that followed the 2016 election results exactly one week ago.

Across the country, Donald Trump’s victory has emboldened people with bigoted views to engage in acts of violence in schools and in public spaces. Overall, these acts of violence leave all of the most vulnerable communities feeling much less safe.

Internet pummels Trump for frantic demand to investigate Obama instead: ‘This is not the tweet of an innocent man’

Published

President Donald Trump jealously raged against Barack Obama's post-presidency business deals, which includes a production agreement with Netflix -- and other social media users ridiculed his apparent envy.

Trump questioned that deal and others in a pair of tweets complaining about an impeachment inquiry launched against him last week by the House Judiciary Committee, and he suggested Congress look at Obama's business since he left the White House.

....work that way. I have a better idea. Look at the Obama Book Deal, or the ridiculous Netflix deal. Then look at all the deals made by the Dems in Congress, the “Congressional Slush Fund,” and lastly the IG Reports. Take a look at them. Those investigations would be over FAST!

Is the Trump administration squelching a whistleblower — and a major scandal?

Published

on

America's system of government has always worked on the honor system. With so few Senate-confirmed Cabinet and federal agency heads, and so many “acting” officials working in the Trump administration, people who are constantly forced to audition for permanent positions are now under tremendous pressure to protect a president hellbent on breaking every norm of good governance. Now a new possible political scandal could be brewing in the Trump administration that tests the loyalty of these “acting” officials — pitting their allegiance to the nation against their desire to impress their boss.

Published

President Donald Trump betrayed his apparent jealously over Barack Obama's production deal with Netflix in a new Twitter rant.

The former president and first lady Michele Obama made their Hollywood debut last month with the documentary "American Factory" released through joint venture with Netflix and their production company, Higher Ground.

Trump questioned that deal in a pair of tweets complaining about an impeachment inquiry launched against him last week by the House Judiciary Committee.

"House Judiciary has given up on the Mueller Report, sadly for them after two years and $40,000,000 spent - ZERO COLLUSION, ZERO OBSTRUCTION," Trump tweeted. "So they say, OK, lets look at everything else, and all of the deals that “Trump” has done over his lifetime. But it doesn’t work that way."
