‘Step 1 — Hold his hand’: Daily Show creates a hilarious guide for interviewing Trump like Fox News hosts

Published

on

“The Daily Show” on Friday posted a hilarious thread on Twitter in which it gave a step-by-step guide for interviewing President Donald Trump like Fox News hosts.

The first step in the process, writes “The Daily Show” is to take a “soft approach” to interviewing him, as a Fox reporter’s primary task is to “hold his hand.” To bolster this point, it shows a video of assorted Fox hosts asking Trump questions such as, “Are you getting the credit for this economic revival?”, “Are you having fun?” and “You’re one of the most loved and respected in history — how does that feel?”

Step 2 is all about flattering Trump, which will instantly get him to like you. This is then illustrated by a video of Fox hosts blatantly buttering up Trump on their programs, including a clip in which the cast of “Fox & Friends” praise Trump for building a “beautiful” hotel.

Finally, “The Daily Show” recommends helping Trump come up with answers if he seems stumped about answering questions, as illustrated by a video of Fox hosts feeding the president answers shortly after they ask him questions.

‘Recipe for disaster’: NC doctor slams Trump’s hopes for a packed GOP convention as ‘an incredibly bad idea’

Published

A North Carolina strongly cautioned his state's governor from caving in to President Donald Trump's wishes for a packed Republican National Convention.

The president has threatened to move the RNC this summer from Charlotte if Gov. Roy Cooper did not ease coronavirus restrictions to allow for a full-scale event, but a local physician told WCNC-TV that Trump's plan was unreasonable.

"What do we know about infections?" said Dr. Jeffrey Galvin, of the Vitality Medical Wellness group. "Infection requires two things, exposure plus time."

Trump wants to pack 20,000 Republicans, journalists and others into Spectrum Center in August, but Galvin said infected people shed small amounts of the virus every time they breathe.

Trump Tower’s profits magically grew by $3 million in 2010 — which helped them borrow another $73 million

Published

on

A decade ago, loan filings showed Trump Tower in New York City had a reported profit of about $13.3 million. But when the tower refinanced its debt soon after, the profits for the same year — 2010 — somehow appeared higher. A new lender listed the profits as $16.1 million, or 21% more than they had been recorded previously.

The next year’s earnings for the building also “improved” between the two filings. Profits for 2011 were listed as 12% higher under the new loan than the old, according to reports by loan servicers and data provider Trepp.

ProPublica uncovered the Trump Tower discrepancies by examining publicly available data for mortgages that are packaged into securities known as commercial mortgage-backed securities, comparing the same years in reports for different CMBS. If a bank had held onto the loan, instead of selling it to investors, such information would have been kept private. No evidence has emerged that the Trump Organization was involved in changing the profit figures.
