Harper Collins pulling plagiarist Trump nominee Monica Crowley’s book from shelves

Published

on

Harper Collins publishing said Fox News contributor and Trump transition team appointee Monica Crowley’s book “will no longer be available for purchase” until Crowley can make revisions.

Andrew Kaczynski of CNN’s KFiles announced Tuesday on Twitter that Crowley’s 2012 book — an anti-Obama screed titled What the (Bleep) Just Happened?: The Happy Warrior’s Guide to the Great American Comeback — has “reached the end of its natural sales cycle,” according to Harper Collins, “and will no longer be available for purchase until such time as the author has the opportunity to source and revise the material.”

Kaczynski’s team found more than 50 separate instances of plagiarism in Crowley’s book.

“Sections of her book are repeatedly lifted from articles by National Review author Andrew C. McCarthy, who is a friend of Crowley’s,” Kaczynski said. “Lines in her book also match word-for-word the work of other columnists, including National Review’s Rich Lowry, Michelle Malkin, conservative economist Stephen Moore, Karl Rove, and Ramesh Ponnuru of Bloomberg View.”

Trump appointed Crowley as his nominee for senior director of strategic communications for the National Security Council on Dec. 15.

Trump’s California donors are freaking out about the social consequences of attending his fundraisers: report

Published

on

President Donald Trump has generated a huge amount of election campaign money from fundraisers in California — a state where he is underwater 30 points and an epicenter of legal and legislative opposition to his agenda.

Fundraisers in California are incredibly lucrative for the president, as the state is home to a number of tech and entertainment millionaires. But its heavily liberal lean has many of his donors scared of social consequences for their support — and according to Politico, that fear is leading the Trump campaign to cloak these events in secrecy.

Damage control: Eugene Robinson explains why beating Trump won’t be the next president’s greatest challenge

Published

on

Democrats have spent months fighting over the tiniest details of each policy during the handful of Democratic debates and forums. While they may agree on 98 percent of the policies, it's the two percent that campaigns are zeroing-in on. The reality, however, is that few if any of the policies or campaign promises will ever come to fruition. As Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson explained in his latest column, the greatest challenge of any Democratic leader post-Trump will be fixing the things the president broke.

In his Monday column, Robinson demanded to know not just how Democrats plan to actually beat Trump, but how they'll repair the damage he'll leave. He doesn't doubt Democrats can accomplish the goal of kicking the president out of the White House, but the aftermath is another matter.
