In a surprising Christmas Eve announcement, newly appointed White House communications director Jason Miller has stepped down from his position after a Trump transition member hinted on Twitter that a sex scandal may be brewing.

According to the New York Daily News, Miller announced that he is walking away only two days after being appointed, saying his wife is expecting their second child and, “It’s clear they need to be my top priority right now, and this is not the time to start a new job as demanding as White House communications director.”

In a series of tweets, now hidden from view, Trump advocate and transition staffer A.J. Delgado cast a shadow over Miller’s announcement, writing, “Congratulations to the baby-daddy on being named WH Comms Director!” before adding, “The 2016 version of John Edwards.” The Edwards mention no doubt referring to the ex-Democratic presidential nominee whose career was derailed by an affair and a child out of wedlock.

In a series of tweets captured by Mediaite, Delgado leveled more accusations at Miller, writing, “When people need to resign graciously and refuse to, it’s a bit… spooky,” hinting that Miller’s troubles may have begun earlier. Delgado added, “Jason Miller. Who needed to resign… yesterday.”

Delgado has since taken her Twitter account off-line.

This is not the first time Delgado, a Trump advocate and cable TV regular, has removed her Twitter account from view. Previously, she dropped it after insisting that Charleston shooter Dylann Roof didn’t appear to be white — leading to much Twitter ridicule.

Delgado tweets below via Mediaite:

Trump appears to have pocketed $123,000 from Libyan dictator Muammar el-Qaddafi: NYT bombshell

Published

The information contained within President Donald Trump's continues to result in blockbuster stories by The New York Times.

On Friday, the newspaper focused on Trump's claims of philanthropy -- which don't always add up.

"In 2009, for example, he agreed to rent his Seven Springs estate in Westchester County, N.Y., to the Libyan dictator Col. Muammar el-Qaddafi, who hoped to stay in a tent on the grounds during a meeting of the United Nations General Assembly," the newspaper reported.

NYT bombshell on Trump’s taxes proves his philanthropic claims ‘don’t always add up’

Published

on

A new report by The New York Times Friday afternoon is diving into President Donald J. Trump's hidden financial records that "cast doubt on a number of his charitable commitments and show that most of his giving came from land deals that offset his income."

Trump wrote in his book, Trump 101: The Way to Success, “If you don’t give back, you’re never ever going to be fulfilled in life," but his philanthropic endeavors do not seem to add up. According to his tax records, The New York Times reported Friday that Trump has given back "at least $130 million since 2005, his second year as a reality TV star on NBC's The Apprentice. But of that amount, "the vast bulk of his charitable tax deductions, $119.3 million worth, came from simply agreeing not to develop land — in several cases, after he had shelved development plans."

Trump acts out his Superman fantasy for Florida seniors at campaign rally

Published

on

It's not the first time President Donald J. Trump has acted out his apparent Superman fixation at one of his superspreader rallies - and it certainly doesn't appear it will be his last.

“In several phone calls last weekend from the presidential suite at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, Mr. Trump shared an idea he was considering: When he left the hospital, he wanted to appear frail at first when people saw him, according to people with knowledge of the conversations. But underneath his button-down dress shirt, he would wear a Superman T-shirt, which he would reveal as a symbol of strength when he ripped open the top layer,” The Times reported earlier this month.
