Jared Kushner agreed to help Manafort secure a Trump administration job for indicted banker

Published

on

Federal officials on Thursday unsealed an indictment leveled against banker Stephen Calk, a former Trump economic adviser who is being accused of lending former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort $16 million in exchange for a plum job within the White House.

Bloomberg is now reporting that Trump son-in-law Jared Kushner agreed to help Manafort push Calk’s candidacy shortly after the 2016 presidential election.

In an email sent to Kushner in late November 2016, Manafort asked Kushner to recommend pushing for Calk to get a “major appointment” within the incoming administration. He also described Calk as a supporter of President Donald Trump’s “since before the nomination was secured and have been active in the campaign.”

“On it!” Kushner replied.

There is no indication that Kushner knew that Calk and Manafort had arranged an alleged pay-for-play scheme, and Calk was ultimately not hired for a job within the White House, despite being interviewed for an under secretary of the Army post within days of granting Manafort a multi-million-dollar loan.

President Donald Trump was the target of a Democratic press conference with four Congresswomen of color who were calling him out for racist tweets telling them to go back to their countries.

The women attacked every policy that Trump seems to be losing on. Trump seemed to try and pivot to another issue entirely, blaming former President Barack Obama for building the cages that he's putting children in after he takes them from their parents.

The Obama Administration built the Cages, not the Trump Administration! DEMOCRATS MUST GIVE US THE VOTES TO CHANGE BAD IMMIGRATION LAWS.

Trump goes off on ‘socialist, communist’ rant saying Democrats are ‘pro Al-Qaeda’

Published

on

President Donald Trump took his racist comments even further Monday afternoon, saying that Democrats are now pro-terrorism.

"We will never be a Socialist or Communist Country. IF YOU ARE NOT HAPPY HERE, YOU CAN LEAVE!" Trump ranted. "It is your choice, and your choice alone. This is about love for America. Certain people HATE our Country. They are anti-Israel, pro Al-Qaeda, and comment on the 9/11 attack, “some people did something.” Radical Left Democrats want Open Borders, which means drugs, crime, human trafficking, and much more. Detention facilities are not Concentration Camps! America has never been stronger than it is now – rebuilt Military, highest Stock Market EVER, lowest unemployment and more people working than ever before. Keep America Great!"

‘Bond is dead’: White dudes flip out over casting of a black woman as next Agent 007

Published

on

On Monday, the Daily Beast reported that the new 007 -- the special agent in the James Bond series -- will be portrayed by the black actress Lashana Lynch.

The announcement set off predictably racist and sexist reactions.

Perhaps the most prominent right-winger to voice his displeasure was Ben Shapiro, who complained that it didn't make sense for Bond to be a woman because of the character's signature seduction moves.

"Bond is about the guns and the girls," Shapiro said, noting that a woman in a seductive role was not realistic.
