‘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.

Trump-loving mayor faces furious backlash after shrugging off George Floyd killing: ‘That man died of overdose or heart attack’

Published

on

In a post to Twitter this Tuesday, the mayor of a Mississippi town asked: "Why in the world would anyone choose to become a police officer in our society today?"

The tweet from Mayor Hal Marx, which was in reference to the death of George Floyd, prompted another Twitter user to respond: "Would be nice to get a few in there that understand reasonable force, when it’s needed, and don’t give the rest of them a bad reputation."

But as the Hattiesburg American points out, it was Marx's response that set Twitter on fire.

Trump rages at Twitter — but the social media outlet fears public opinion more than it fears the president

Published

on

In a landmark action, Twitter has for the first time attached independent fact-checking information directly to two tweets from President Donald Trump. The president’s tweets make false claims alleging that wider use of mail in ballots will result in an increase in voter fraud.

This is far from the first time Trump has posted falsehoods on Twitter. But it is the first time the social media company has taken action against his account.

‘I’m entitled’: Kayleigh McEnany defends her 11 mail-in votes while calling it ‘fraud’ for the masses

Published

on

White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany on Thursday faced questions from Fox News about why she had voted by mail 11 times even though President Donald Trump has called absentee ballots a "scam."

McEnany was asked about her voting history after the Tampa Bay Times reported that she had used mail-in voting nearly a dozen times in recent years.

"So why is it OK for you to do it?" Fox News host Ed Henry asked McEnany. "I understand you are traveling, you're in a different city. But how can you really be assured that your votes were counted accurately but when other people do it, it's fraud."
