Roger Stone destroyed by conservative for fleecing Trump fans to maintain his lavish lifestyle

Published

on

Writing at the conservative Bulwark, columnist Andrew Egger exposed former Donald Trump confidante Roger Stone as a grifting fraud who is shaking down fans of the president by pleading poor as he lives the good life in Florida.

Getting right to the point, Egger notes that Stone hasn’t been having a great year as he faces criminal charges and is in danger of “joining a former partner in crime Paul Manafort behind bars on charges of making false statements and witness tampering later this year.”

According to the columnist, Stone is now using his wife as a cut-out to beg for help with his legal fees in an email with a subject line reading: “I am embarrassed to write this.”

The email then states, “My husband and I have an urgent new problem and we need your help. I told my husband I was going to write you, one of his most valued supporters. I am embarrassed to write this, but I must,” before adding that they have been forced to “[pull] in our belts’ like so many Americans in “tight times.”

“We are not asking for a donation—but an ADVANCE, repaid by our pledge to do our best to contribute a like amount to what you give to a charitable organization when this is all over,” he continued. “We should only need help in the seven months before my husband’s trial when I know in my heart he will be exonerated and we can get back on our feet.”

Eggers then called out the couple by pointing out where the money goes — and it is not toward legal fees.

“The Stone Family Support Fund, by contrast, is purportedly set up ‘to help pay for our rent, food, medical expenses, insurance, gasoline, and the most basic of living expenses,'” Eggers points out, before sarcastically adding, about a request for as much as $1,000, “They do after all have a certain standard of living to maintain.”

President Donald Trump and Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison appeared at a rally in Ohio Sunday, prompting Aussies to complain that it's unacceptable for their leader to be campaigning for Trump.

Trump invited himself to a Houston, Texas rally with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, where he tried to campaign for the U.S. president with Indian-American voters. Sadly, however, nearly 80 percent of Indian-American voters cast their ballots for Hillary Clinton in 2016.

Republicans love the Constitution — until it applies to them: Conservative columnist

Published

on

Conservative Washington Post columnist Max Boot unleashed on President Donald Trump's latest scandal he's calling Ukraine-gate. But when it comes to Republicans, he called them outright complicit.

In his Sunday column, Boot noted that a mob boss doesn't have to overtly say “pay up, or we will destroy your store” to be guilty of extortion. In Trump's case, he tends to say things in a way that it is understood what he wants people to do, according to former "fixer" Michael Cohen.

Hate for Trump sets new record of Americans who can’t stand a president

Published

on

A new poll shows a record number of Americans can't stand the president of the United States.

According to the most recent NBC News/Wall Street Journal public opinion poll, an astounding 69 percent of Americans don't like Trump personally.

During the early 2000s, President George W. Bush enjoyed the benefit of Americans finding him likable and wanting to "have a beer" with the sober leader. That measure of "likability" has been a kind of inspiration for political leaders searching for voters based not on issues but on personality.
