Rudy Giuliani rages about Cohen plea before the G20 summit: ‘Hardly coincidental’

Published

on

Donald Trump’s attorney Rudy Giuliani lashed out at special counsel Robert Mueller for his headline-grabbing plea deal with the president’s former “fixer” Michael Cohen coming just before the G20 summit in Argentina.

In a statement to Politico, the former New York City mayor said it’s “hardly” coincidental that Mueller reached the deal “just as the President is leaving for a meeting with world leaders.”

Giuliani added that Mueller “did the very same thing as the President was leaving for a world summit in Helsinki,” referencing the special counsel’s 2017 indictment of 12 Russians for the hacks of the Democratic National Committee’s email servers that came down days before Trump met with Russian President Vladimir Putin during a summit between their two nations.

The report noted that there is “no evidence that Mueller sought, in either case, to overshadow Trump’s travel” — but that it did overshadow it nonetheless.

Published

on

President Donald Trump's ghostwriter for "The Art of the Deal" interrupted his vacation to warn that the former reality TV star's mental state appears to be dissolving before the public eye.

Tony Schwartz, who spent hundreds of hours with the future president working on the 1987 book that defined his public persona as a celebrity businessman, has warned since the 2016 campaign that Trump is dangerously unfit for office.

On Thursday morning, he issued another urgent warning based on the president's recent behavior, which includes comparing himself to the "second coming" and declaring himself the "chosen one."

‘Madman’: Rick Wilson warns pressures of presidency have driven Trump ‘batsh*t crazy’

Published

on

The president is "batsh*t crazy," according to a Republican operative -- and there's apparently nothing Americans can do about that until next year's election.

Trump supporters, and much of the mainstream media, once believed the president's outrageous and outlandish remarks were part of some psychological strategy to "own the libs," wrote GOP strategist Rick Wilson for The Daily Beast, but "only idiots and zealots believe that now."

"The howling vacuum of need within Trump's soul had already distorted every normal human emotion for decades, but now the stress of the presidency and the realities of his lasting failures have pushed him closer to a very public mental breakdown," Wilson wrote.

Holocaust survivor’s son rips Netanyahu ‘shill’ Trump in scathing editorial

Published

on

Hey Donald Trump, apparently you want to mix it up with me, son of a Holocaust survivor because I don’t agree that Israel—another sovereign nation—should be able to act as an oppressive occupier of Arab-owned land.

I’m not impressed with your offensive but limp, stupid statements about “Jewish Democrats” all because you think it plays well with your re-election campaign. You want a piece of me, bring it. You have done enough to piss me off.

Even given an extra day of reporter questions to suggest that you had missteps in accusing Jewish Democrats who don’t back the kowtowing policies of right-leaning Benjamin Netanyahu to remain as Israeli prime minister, you doubled down.
