Children’s charity pulls out of stripper tournament at Trump golf course

Published

on

The non-profit group associated with the “stripper” golf tournament at a course owned by President Donald Trump has decided to pull out of the event at the last minute.

After a Washington Post report by David Fahrenthold, the nonprofit group Miami Allstars Foundation admitted that they’re not going to join and that the event should probably be canceled.

“We’re not participating, and I think you should cancel the event,” the group’s head Carlos Alamilla told Fahrenthold he told organizers.

There were also questions about the nonprofit status of the group because the state said that they didn’t have it on their books. Alamilla said it was because the group missed the deadline for registration but that they are a legitimate charity.

He told Fahrenthold that the event organizers “offered an unspecified payment as a result of the tournament.” He didn’t realize the group’s logo would be used on ads depicting the strippers as “caddy girls.”

The event is still being advertised as of Wednesday.

Trump economic task force member once called minimum wage law the ‘Black Teenage Unemployment Act’

Published

on

Art Laffer, a member of President Donald Trump's coronavirus economic task force who last year was honored with a Presidential Medal of Freedom, once referred to the federal minimum wage law as the "Black Teenage Unemployment Act" on Fox News while he attempted to claim that it made "no sense whatsoever."

"The minimum wage makes no sense whatsoever to me," Laffer told host Jenna Lee on the since-canceled Fox News show "Happening Now." "Honestly, it's just the teenage — 'Black Teenage Unemployment Act.' And this is the very group that we need to have jobs — not be put out of work because of a minimum wage. So, I'm very much in favor of, at least for teenagers, getting rid of the minimum wage."

‘There is a wickedness in our president’: Conservative Christian decries ‘cruelty’ of Trump’s latest smear campaign

Published

on

Peter Wehner, a conservative Christian who is a former senior adviser to George W. Bush, has written a blistering column calling out President Donald Trump's "cruelty" in his latest smear campaign against MSNBC host Joe Scarborough.

Trump has spent the past several weeks demanding that Scarborough be investigated for the 2001 death of Lori Klausutis, a former congressional staffer who fainted and fatally hit her head while working in Scarborough's Florida office.

Even though there is no evidence of foul play in the case and even though Scarborough was in Washington D.C. at the time of her fainting, Trump has nevertheless persisted in making false allegations against the MSNBC host.

Al Sharpton busts Trump’s hypocrisy on Morning Joe: ‘He chased Joe Scarborough like a hungry dog behind a bone’

Published

on

The Rev. Al Sharpton called out President Donald Trump for groveling for Joe Scarborough's approval for years, only to turn around and baselessly accuse him of murder.

The president claimed he'd always been haunted by the possibility that the "Morning Joe" had been involved in the 2001 death of former congressional staffer Lori Klausutis, but Sharpton dismissed that as nonsense.

....about whether or not Joe could have done such a horrible thing? Maybe or maybe not, but I find Joe to be a total Nut Job, and I knew him well, far better than most. So many unanswered & obvious questions, but I won’t bring them up now! Law enforcement eventually will?
