War between Trump kids and Ivana’s ex-husband began after Don Jr made a bizarre toast at their Mar-a-Lago wedding

According to a report for the New York Post’s Page Six, the war between Donald Trump’s children and Ivana Trump’s ex-husband Rossano Rubicondi started the day she married him, after Don Jr. made a bizarre toast at their wedding reception.

Last week it was reported that Rubicondi had referred to the Trump children, — Don Jr., Eric and Ivanka — as “garbage,” while singling out Donald Trump’s namesake by saying, “Don Jr. is an idiot. He’s a jerk.”

In an updated report from the New York Daily News –in a report from 2008 — an offensive toast by Don Jr. likely began the family feud.

“Donald Trump Jr. threatening to kill his new stepfather wasn’t the most romantic part of Ivana Trump’s wedding to Rossano Rubicondi on Saturday. But it was the most fun!” gossip columnist Ben Widdicombe reported at the time.

“We are a construction company and we have job sites, we lose people,” Don Jr. joked during his toast as his father stuck to the sidelines with his latest wife at the time, Melania. “You better treat her right, because I have a .45 and a shovel.”

According to Widdicombe’s report, “The eldest son of Donald and Ivana Trump had given his mother away (with brother Eric) just a few hours before. But at the reception in the ballroom of Mar-a-Lago, it fell to him to deliver a bawdy speech that also dwelled upon his mother’s ‘great boobs.'”

The original report also notes that Trump “had charged Ivana the wholesale price of $700,000 for the wedding at his Florida estate – forsaking his normal profit at a retail price of $1.3 million.”

Mitch McConnell may let Republicans write Senate impeachment rules without Democratic votes

Published

on

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is plotting to shut out Democrats on impeachment if a bipartisan compromise on rules for the trial can't be reached.

The Kentucky Republican said this week that he hopes to reach an agreement on rules for the impeachment trial of President Donald Trump, but he's also readying a "backup plan" in case he can't reach an agreement with Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, reported Vanity Fair.

“The first thing Sen. Schumer and I will do is see if there’s a possibility of agreement on a procedure,” McConnell said. “That failing, I would probably come back to my own members and say, ‘Okay, can 51 of us agree how we’re going to handle this?’”

Fresno Bee burns Nunes to the ground in scathing editorial

Published

on

The editorial board of the Fresno Bee has written a scathing takedown of Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) for his extraordinary fealty to President Donald Trump, which the editors say is harming the country.

Specifically, the editorial accuses Nunes of forsaking his oath of office as a congressman to serve as Trump's most loyal toady on the House Intelligence Committee.

"As has been true for nearly all of Trump’s first term, Nunes has relinquished his proper role as an independent representative of Congress and has instead acted like a member of the Trump 2020 re-election team," the editorial states.

Republicans blundered badly as their own impeachment expert witness wrecked their defenses of Trump: columnist

Published

on

Republicans on the House Judiciary Committee pinned their hopes on George Washington University law professor Jonathan Turley, their sole expert witness on the panel at the hearing on Wednesday, to discredit the impeachment probe into President Donald Trump.

But as anti-Trump conservative columnist Jennifer Rubin wrote for the Washington Post, even Turley's testimony ended up damaging the GOP more than Democrats, because he undercut one of the GOP's most solid narratives in defense of the president: that trying to extort Ukraine with military aid would not be impeachable even if it was proven.
