‘Total con job!’ Trump helps promote conspiracy theory about goon who allegedly threatened Stormy Daniels

Published

on

President Donald Trump made his most direct response yet to Stormy Daniels Wednesday on Twitter in a reply to one of his supporters — who boasts of her friendship with the president’s “super fixer.”

The president denied Daniels’ claim that a man threatened her infant daughter if she did not drop her claims about her sexual relationship with Trump — and floated a conspiracy theory about the man posted by the “Deplorably Scottish” account.

“A sketch years later about a nonexistent man,” Trump tweeted. “A total con job, playing the Fake News Media for Fools (but they know it)!”

The president indirectly denied the porn actress’ claims following her “60 Minutes” interview, where she first described the threat, and denied knowledge of a hush payout to her as part of a non-disclosure agreement.

“So much Fake News,” he tweeted the morning after the CBS News interview. “Never been more voluminous or more inaccurate. But through it all, our country is doing great!”

Daniels has claimed that a man approached her outside a Las Vegas gym in 2011 and threatened her over her affair with Trump, which took place five years earlier, and she shared a composite sketch of the man on Tuesday’s episode of “The View.”

Trump supporter Shenna Fox replied to the president’s first tweet of the morning by sharing a photo of Daniels with an ex-boyfriend who resembles the man in the sketch.

The president replied to that tweet in his denial of Daniels’ claims.

The Scotland-born Fox made international news in June 2017 when she was convicted of theft as part of a gambit to perform at Carnegie Hall.

The 49-year-old pianist went into debt to cover a $21,000 fee associated with the performance, and she forged $3,360 worth of Choral Union checks in an attempt to pay off her debt.

She was sentenced to perform 180 hours of community service, and Fox and her husband were thrown out of the Choral Union.

Fox, who has more than 21,000 followers on Twitter, says she performed for the future U.S. president at his Turnberry golf resort in Scotland, where she claims she struck up a friendship with Trump’s longtime security chief Keith Schiller.

That claim is part of her Twitter bio.

Daniels’ attorney Michael Avenatti announced a $100,000 reward for information leading to the identification of the man the adult film star saw in the parking lot.

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.
