Trump bizarrely accuses media of ‘abusing’ Ivanka by reporting on her business woes

Published

on

President Donald Trump took time out from playing golf and wining and dining Japanese Prime Minister Shinzō Abe to lash out at the media again, saying they have “abused” and treated his daughter Ivanka “badly.”

On Saturday, Trump tweeted: “I am so proud of my daughter Ivanka. To be abused and treated so badly by the media, and to still hold her head so high, is truly wonderful!”

After a series of tweets talking up his day of golf with Abe, Trump once again felt the need to complain about the media — something he is known to do every few days.

While the media has offered up several flattering pieces on Ivanka Trump and her husband Jared Kushner, the First Daughter was thrust into the headlines this week after multiple retailers announced that they were dropping her luxury lines due to poor sales.

Trump responded to press accounts that upscale retailer Nordstrom was dropping Ivanka Trump’s merchandise by attacking the retailer on Twitter, writing, “My daughter Ivanka has been treated so unfairly by @Nordstrom. She is a great person — always pushing me to do the right thing! Terrible!”

The controversy was only exacerbated when Trump Senior Adviser Kellyanne Conway plugged Ivanka’s clothing on Fox News — leading to her being admonished

Responding to Trump’s latest media attack, many noted on Twitter that the media was doing it’s job: reporting on Ivanka Trump’s business woes.

Published

on

President Donald Trump has repeatedly claimed that his Democratic predecessor in the White House, Barack Obama, left him ill-prepared to handle a major health crisis when, in fact, Obama’s administration left behind a comprehensive pandemic game plan that included a 69-page playbook. But Trump’s administration abandoned those Obama-era recommendations. On top of that, National Public Radio’s Brian Mann is reporting that Trump’s administration, in 2017, “stopped work on new federal regulations that would have forced the health care industry to prepare for an airborne infectious disease pandemic such as COVID-19.”

2020 Election

Here’s the real reason Trump and the GOP don’t want mail-in voting

Published

on

Trump and Republicans don’t want mail-in voting this November because it blows up a couple of their most effective voter suppression schemes.

In presidential elections dating back to 2000, there’s been noticeable media coverage of long lines in majority-black precincts; commentators sometimes wonder out loud why people would have to wait in line 8 hours to vote in, for example, inner city Ohio in 2004 or Milwaukee in the 2020 primaries.

California’s sudden spike in COVID-19 is a disturbing warning for the whole country

Published

On Memorial Day, as crowds packed Venice Beach in Los Angeles, the state of California experienced its highest one-day total for positive coronavirus cases. According to data compiled by the San Jose Mercury News, there were 2,565 new cases in California on May 25 — breaking the previous one-day record from May 5th, when 2,546 new cases were reported across the state. The number of confirmed cases since the start of the outbreak exceeds 100,000 this week in the state of California, a fact that may seems at odds with Democratic Governor Gavin Newsom's slow plant to start approving reopenings among the state's counties as they meet certain benchmarks.
