Corey Lewandowski luring clients by bragging about access to Trump’s Twitter account: report

Published

on

A recent BuzzFeed report reveals that four sources allege that a former top aide to President Donald Trump turned lobbyist has been bragging to clients about his access to the president’s Twitter account.

In discussions with Facebook and a financial company, The Blackstone Group, Corey Lewandowski said that he still had access to the account as a selling point to hiring his new lobbying firm. It’s unclear what other companies received similar pitches.

Lewandowski flatly denied the allegations as well as the claim that he met with anyone at either company.

I know facts don’t matter to buzz feed but it’s not true,” Lewandowski wrote to BuzzFeed via email. When asked if he met with Facebook, he said, “Never.” When asked about Blackstone, he replied, “I never met Blackstone. Please make sure you accurately report that! I doubt you will.”

The White House categorically denied that Lewandowski has any access to the president’s Twitter account.

One of BuzzFeed’s sources explained that it was unclear whether Lewandowski was promising access to the account or simply that he has the ear of the president and the digital staffers. Sources explained that they expected a detailed government relations plan and were shocked by the claim.

“It wasn’t a question of whether they believed him or not,” a source said. “It was as weird as him walking into the office and saying, ‘I like chocolate.’”

Ed Brookover, who joined the lobbying firm, said that he’s never heard Lewandowski make such a claim and refused to say what was pitched in any of the potential client meetings.

Facebook declined to comment to BuzzFeed on whether they met with Lewandowski but did clarify that he is not contracted by the company. The Blackstone Group also said they have not retained his services.

Pentagon gives senators classified briefing on UFOs reported by the Navy

Published

on

While it might sound like something out of "The X-Files," Navy pilots have been seeing UFOs, and U.S. Senators now want to know what's happening.

According to Politico, three more senators met with Pentagon officials for a classified briefing Wednesday about encounters pilots are having with unidentified aircraft. It seems the Pentagon is getting more and more requests by officials with high clearances to figure out what's happening.

The crafts are, at their most basic, nothing more than "unidentified aircraft," and while it isn't likely they're little green men, there are some senators who might have concerns about whether these UFOs are actually a foreign adversary.

Wall Street Journal issues blistering editorial asking Trump what the point is of a second term

Published

on

In a blistering editorial, the Wall Street Journal is asking President Donald Trump what the point of a second term is since he hasn't done anything in his first term.

During his rally in Orlando Tuesday, Trump repeated the same tired lines and same tired policies from 2016. The "Promises Made, Promises Kept" slogan shown over the crowd, yet the supporters didn't understand the irony.

"The most striking fact of his speech was how backward looking it was," the editorial board said. "Every incumbent needs to remind voters of his record, Mr. Trump more than most because the media are so hostile."

‘Crosses a line’: New York Times publisher unleashes on Trump for accusing paper of ‘treason’

Published

on

On Wednesday, New York Times publisher A. G. Sulzberger wrote a blistering editorial in the Wall Street Journal, saying that President Donald Trump's latest attack on his paper "crosses a line."

First it was the "the failing New York Times." Then "fake news." Then "enemy of the people," wrote Sulzberger. "President Trump's escalating attacks on The New York Times have paralleled his broader barrage on American media. He's gone from misrepresenting our business, to assaulting our integrity, to demonizing our journalists with a phrase that’s been used by generations of demagogues. Now the president has escalated his attacks even further, accusing the Times of a crime so grave it is punishable by death.
