Trump still privately questions whether Obama’s birth certificate is real: report

Published

on

According to a New York Times report, President Donald Trump has recently been heard repeating his “birther” claim about whether or not former President Barack Obama’s birth certificate was real.

“In recent months, [sources] say, Mr. Trump has used closed-door conversations to question the authenticity of President Barack Obama’s birth certificate,” the Times’ Tuesday night report reads. “He has also repeatedly claimed that he lost the popular vote last year because of widespread voter fraud, according to advisers and lawmakers.”

A senator who spoke on condition of anonymity chuckled as they told the Times about being privy to those recent conversations where “the president revived his doubts” about how authentic Obama’s birth certificate is.

The report also made note of Trump’s recent claims that the “Access: Hollywood” tape where he was heard bragging about grabbing women “by the p*ssy” might be a fake — despite apologizing for it and calling it “locker room talk” last year when the tape was first released. Those close to Trump told The Washington Post that he has taken to bragging that special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into his possible collusion with the Russian government will be ending by the close of the year.

“He creates his own reality and lives in his own reality and tries to bend reality around himself and his own deep narcissistic needs,” Peter Wehner, senior fellow at the Ethics and Public Policy Center, told the Post.

ABC News broke a story just after midnight Thursday about a former IT consultant of Jeffrey Epstein's who resigned because he couldn't take some of the things he was seeing on Epstein's private island compound.

The island, which has been called "pedophile island" by locals, had "topless women everywhere.

"There were photos of topless women everywhere," said contractor Steve Scully, who began working for Epstein in 1999 and continued for six years. "On his desk, in his office, in his bedroom."

‘Names are going to start coming out’: New report says more elites will be exposed in the Epstein case — and ‘DC is on edge’

Published

Will other powerful people — presumably men — get taken down as a result of the sex trafficking case against Jeffrey Epstein?

That’s the hope of many closer followers of the story, but it’s far from clear what, if any, fallout there will be. Epstein’s connections to Presidents Bill Clinton and Donald Trump have raised suspicions about potential evidence of their wrongdoing, such suspicions remain unproven. Alan Dershowitz has already faced accusations of being involved in Epstein’s crimes, though he denies the charge vigorously.

But a new report from Vanity Fair’s Gabriel Sherman says that “DC is on edge” over the Epstein case, and any elites who have run in his circles could be involved. Dozens of girls, if not more, are believed to be involved in his alleged sex trafficking, and lawyers for some of the women who have accused Epstein are strongly suggesting that other high-profile figures will be implicated.

‘It’s so un-American’: Internet scorches Trump supporters for racist chants of ‘Send her back!’

Published

on

The ignoble highlight of President Donald Trump's rally in Greenville, North Carolina on Wednesday was when his fans doubled down on his racist attacks on four Democratic congresswomen of color and targeted Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), chanting "Send her back! Send her back!"

Political commentators of all stripes were gobsmacked by the crowd's naked racism — and buried them in condemnation:

The crowd at Trump’s rally chanting “send her back” after the President viciously and dishonestly attacked Ilhan Omar is one of the most chilling and horrifying things I’ve ever seen in politics.
