‘He’s proclaimed his innocence’: Trump weighs in on Patriots’ owner prostitution charge and Acosta pedophile deal

‘He’s Proclaimed His Innocence, Totally’

President Donald Trump has just weighed in on several sex scandals in today’s news, sex scandals surrounding two powerful billionaires. People in the cases are close to him. Unsurprisingly, he’s supporting those accused of wrongdoing.

“I really don’t know too much about it,” President Trump said Friday afternoon when asked about allegations his Secretary of Labor, Alex Acosta delivered an illegal sweetheart deal to billionaire serial pedophile rapist Jeffrey Epstein a decade ago, when Acosta was a U.S. Attorney.

“I know he’s done a great job as labor secretary and that seems like a long time ago,” Trump added.

Asked about news that the billionaire owner of the New England Patriots was arrested for solicitation of prostitution, the President replied he’s very sad, but then defended him.

“He’s proclaimed his innocence, totally,” Trump said of the Patriots’ owner, Robert Kraft, who is a close friend and ally of Trump’s.

It’s important to note the circumstances surrounding the case against Kraft. He was arrested “after a several-month investigation revealed women [at the spa] were in ‘sexual servitude,”‘ according to arrest records.

“Women, many of them from China, lived inside and were not permitted to leave,” TCPalm, a USA Today affiliate, reports. One sheriff “said he believes women in the spas were supplied by human traffickers with ties to China and New York.”

President Trump likes to use the terms human trafficking and sex trafficking as arguments to build his wall, but when he’s confronted with actual cases that affect his friends, he looks the other way.

Trump blows up at Fox News reporter for asking him about disbanding pandemic team

Published

on

On Wednesday, President Donald Trump lost his temper at a coronavirus press briefing when Fox News correspondent John Roberts asked him about his administration disbanding the pandemic response team.

"We didn't do that. That turned out to be a false story," said Trump. (It is not a false story.) "Now you're starting to go — are you working for CNN?"

"I'm pointing out what they have said and what you have said, that's all," said Roberts.

"Fox isn't so easy either, don't kid yourself," whined Trump. "Look, John, let me tell you something. You know that's a false story. What you just said is a false story, this doctor knows it better than anybody ... you shouldn't be repeating a story that you know is false."

More than 1 in 5 ventilators in federal government stockpile is holding for emergencies don’t work

Published

on

As the coronavirus is raging through the United States, President Donald Trump has begun releasing personal protective equipment from federal stockpiles as well as much-needed ventilators. Unfortunately, however, one in five ventilators from the government don't work.

The New York Times reported Wednesday that there are 10,000 ventilators that the government is holding back for the next wave of the emergency.

"But what federal officials have neglected to mention is that more than 2,000 of the lifesaving devices are unavailable after the contract to maintain the government’s stockpile lapsed late last summer, and a contracting dispute meant that a new firm did not begin its work until late January. By then, the coronavirus crisis was already underway."
