Karen McDougal’s attorney has the perfect response to a Trump ally flipping after silencing her story

Published

on

In response to news that American Media Inc. Chairman David Pecker was granted immunity in exchange for information about Donald Trump and Michael Cohen colluding to silence former Playmate Karen McDougal, the adult model’s lawyer had the perfect comeback.

Pecker’s company publishes National Enquirer and bought the rights to McDougal’s story about her affair with the president and then killed it in the leadup to the 2016 campaign. Yesterday, the Wall Street Journal reported that he is cooperating with federal prosecutors and willingly providing information about the deal he made with Cohen and Trump.

On Twitter Thursday afternoon, McDougal’s attorney Peter Stris released a three-word, tongue-in-cheek statement: “Told you so.”

Linked in the tweet was a video from a March appearance on CNN’s The Situation Room in which he claimed McDougal “was tricked into signing a bogus contract with a quarter-billion-dollar company that happens to be run by a close, personal friend of Donald Trump.”

‘I look at Donald Trump I don’t see Reagan — I see George Wallace’: Former Republican Reagan official

Published

on

Wayne Grant served as the Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary of the Army under former President Ronald Reagan. Still, when he looks at today's Republican Party, he can't help but get uncomfortable.

"When I look now at Donald Trump, I don't see Ronald Reagan, I see George Wallace," said Grant.

"For my entire adult life, I was a Republican," he explained. "Until four years ago when, for the first time ever, I voted for a Democrat for president. When I was a much younger man, I had the great honor of serving as Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary of the Army under Ronald Reagan. You know, Ronald Reagan was a conservative right down to his core. But the man was also an idealist. He was an optimist. And those are two qualities I see none of in the current occupant of that office."

A whopping 14 percent of new US COVID-19 cases are coming from Texas

Published

With the daily number of new coronavirus infections in Texas now exceeding that of most other states, experts say Texas has become a hot spot of the global pandemic and that more aggressive measures are needed to slow the virus’ spread.

Texas’ new confirmed cases of the coronavirus now make up around 14% of the U.S. total — measured by a seven-day average — a significantly higher proportion than its 9% share of the nation’s population. Since July 1, the U.S. has reported 358,027 new infections. Of those, 50,599 were in Texas.

On Tuesday, the Texas Department of State Health Services reported more than 10,000 new cases — representing nearly 20% of the nation’s new cases for the day. It could be a “catch-up” from the July 4 holiday, DSHS spokesman Chris Van Deusen said, noting that numbers reported Sunday and Monday were lower.

Devastating new ad uses Ronald Reagan’s words against Trump to stunning effect

Published

on

The Lincoln Project is not the only right-wing group that has been creating attack ads slamming President Donald Trump. Another is Republican Voters Against Trump, which uses the words of President Ronald Reagan in its latest video to illustrate Trump’s failures as president.

In the ad — which lasts one minute and 40 seconds — RVAT contrast Reagan’s words with images of the U.S. during the Trump era. The message is not subtle: Under Trump, the United States is a long way from Reagan’s vision for the country.

The ad isn’t aimed at liberals and progressives, many of whom would argue that Reagan’s economic policies were bad for the American working class during the 1980s. It asks Republicans: “Has your party left you?”
