‘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.

CNN panel busts Trump for ‘grotesque’ lynching comment in effort to create chaos before key impeachment hearing

Published

on

Moments after Donald Trump fired off a tweet calling his impending impeachment a "lynching" a CNN panel hammered the president for making the horrific comparison -- but also pointed out that the president's use of the word was timed for a very specific reason.

Admitting a reluctance to read Trump's tweets on the air, "New Day" host Alisyn Camerota nonetheless, recited the president's tweet, reading, "So some day, if a Democrat becomes President and the Republicans win the House, even by a tiny margin, they can impeach the President, without due process or fairness or any legal rights,” Trump tweeted. “All Republicans must remember what they are witnessing here – a lynching. But we will WIN!” with obvious disgust.

Published

On Monday in Sevier County, Tennessee, during a county commission meeting to discuss a pending vote to become a gun sanctuary city, Commissioner Warren Hurst exploded in a racist, homophobic tirade that stunned onlookers.

"It's time we wake up people, it's time, it's past time," said Hurst, in footage originally captured by WVLT News. "We got a queer running for president, if that ain't about as ugly as you can get. Look what we got running for president in the Democratic party. We can go over here to [Sevier County Sheriff] Hoss' jail and get better people out of there than those running for Democratic [sic] to be president of the United States."

The president has been obsessed with undercover recordings by the right-wing Project Veritas outfit that misleadingly suggests an anti-Trump conspiracy by CNN president Jeff Zucker, and he has been privately ranting for days about the audio and video recordings, reported The Daily Beast.
