‘Trump is worse’ than Weinstein, says ‘Art of the Deal’ author — and ‘much more will emerge’

Published

on

The man who knows President Donald Trump as well as nearly anyone says “much more will emerge” about his alleged sexual misconduct over the years.

Tony Schwartz, who spent hundreds of hours with Trump while collaborating on “The Art of the Deal,” said allegations against the president were even worse than the “disturbing” claims against disgraced Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein.

“Today’s NYT story on Harvey Weinstein is one of the most disturbing articles I’ve ever read about dozens of human beings being complicit with & enabling a monster,” Schwartz tweeted. “Trump is worse, and much more will emerge. We are living in a deeply deeply sick American culture.”

The New York Times article reveals how Weinstein exploited his power and connections to build a “complicity machine” to help him cover up “his methodical abuse of women” over decades in Hollywood.

Schwartz suggests the truth about Trump — who has been accused of sexual assault by at least 16 women and was caught bragging about it to former “Access Hollywood” host Billy Bush — would eventually be revealed as part of the larger “#MeToo” campaign that has brought down powerful and abusive men throughout politics and the media.

“Journalists are behaving heroically,” Schwartz said. “So grateful for the depth, specificity, richness and power of so many stories about the transgressions of Trump, his administration and the epidemic of prominent men sexually assaulting women. Thank God for the first amendment.”

Trump finished runner-up in Time Magazine’s “Person of the Year” to “The Silence Breakers” who exposed sexual misconduct — including the president’s own accusers.

Published

on

Web browsers have become the equivalent of safe deposit boxes, digital spaces where we stuff our personal information and expect it to be kept safe. While the websites that harbor sensitive data generally swear that this information is private and protected, a detailed report by cybersecurity researcher Sam Jadali, explained in depth by Dan Goodin at Ars Technica, found that eight browser extensions for Google Chrome and Firefox were harvesting personal data from millions of people, unbeknownst to both them and to the makers of those browsers.

What drove the New Yorker’s Jane Mayer into Al Franken denialism?

Published

on

The defenders of Sen. Al Franken are perhaps the single most embarrassing group of allegedly progressive people in the Democratic coalition. Franken, who resigned from the Senate in January 2018, was accused by eight different women of sexual impropriety. Most of these accusations were both serious and credible, in that the women making them were mostly liberals who had no apparent reason to lie about Franken's behavior toward them. Despite this, Franken's defenders are married to the delusional belief that it's all just a frame-up and that if he'd had "due process" in the form of a Senate ethics investigation (run by Republicans, who control that chamber) he would have somehow managed to prove this.

Rush Limbaugh argues Kamala Harris and Barack Obama can’t be considered African-American

Published

on

Rush Limbaugh, the controversial radio host with a long history of racially charged comments, on Monday described Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., and former President Barack Obama as not being truly "black."

In a clip captured by Media Matters for America, Limbaugh can be heard using a mocking tone to describe Harris and Obama — as well as Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich. — as people who want to be "victims" so they depict Trump as "this big man bully."

"And by the way, can somebody explain to me how Kamala Harris is an African-American?" Limbaugh asks. "Her father is Jamaican and her mother is Indian. How does that equal African-American? Same thing with Barack Obama. Obama's not African-American, he doesn't have any history here [inaudible] any of that stuff. And Rashida Tlaib is Palestinian, for crying out -- that'd be like calling a Jewish person a person of color. How is Rashida Tlaib a person of color? She's not! This is all about making them victims. It's all about making them appear to be 'Just little people trying to save themselves and save their country and this big man bully, this guy Trump comes along and squashes on them and steps on them and it's all because he doesn't like...' It's absurd!"
