Donald Trump allegedly wanted to date his son’s girlfriend: report

Published

on

In a detailed, lengthy profile in the Atlantic, writer McKay Coppins describes the power struggle between Ivanka Trump and Donald Trump Jr. The story notes that although Ivanka is widely seen as the president’s favorite, Don Jr. might be angling for more power—and even has political ambitions of his own. In fact, his girlfriend, Kimberly Guilfoyle, appears to be encouraging Don Jr’s ambitions. “I think he’s the No. 1 up-and-coming political figure, for sure, on the right,” she told Breitbart News.

When Trump won in 2016, his kids huddled together to write his victory speech. But that image of family unity belies the reality, Coppins writes. “Over the past several months, I spoke with dozens of people close to the Trumps, including friends, former employees, White House officials, and campaign aides. The succession battle they described is marked by old grievances, petty rivalries—and deceptively high stakes.”

Don Jr. was vying for a more active role in the campaign when he organized a meeting with Russians at Trump Tower, which helped trigger the Mueller investigation. As the full ramifications of the Trump Tower meeting came into view, Trump allegedly questioned his son’s intelligence. “He wasn’t angry at Don,” a former White House official told The Atlantic. “It was more like he was resigned to his son’s idiocy.”

“He’s not the sharpest knife in the drawer,” Trump reportedly said with a sigh.

In the second year of the Trump presidency, Don Jr. divorced his wife Vanessa and started dating former Fox News personality Kimberly Guilfoyle. Trump wasn’t happy.

“Some suspected that the president was simply fed up with the distraction the relationship posed,” Coppins writes. “But according to one longtime Trump adviser, there may have been another reason for his displeasure. Over the years, Trump had frequently made suggestive comments about Guilfoyle’s attractiveness, the adviser told me, and more than once inquired about whom she was dating.”

Are Roger Stone’s attacks on the judge just a desperate attempt to score a new trial?

Published

on

Once again, Roger Stone's lawyers filed a demand that Judge Amy Berman Jackson recuse herself from his case. And once again, Jackson denied the attempt.

Stone's relationship with Berman Jackson has been fraught with melodrama that seems entirely of his own making.

In the very early days of the trial, Stone was put under a gag order to keep the case out of the news and ensure the jury could remain impartial. Stone not only broke the gag rule, but he also went on his own personal attack against the judge, posting a photo of the judge surrounded by the crosshairs of a gun.

White House swears absence of Mulvaney on Trump’s India trip has nothing to do with comments begging for immigrants

Published

on

The White House swears that the real reason chief of staff Mick Mulvaney was nixed at the last minute from attending the India trip has nothing to do with his latest comments about the desperate need for immigrants for the future of the United States.

Mulvaney was outed this week after he was caught on tape saying that the United States is "desperate" for immigrants.

"We are desperate — desperate — for more people," Mulvaney told a private group in England Wednesday. "We are running out of people to fuel the economic growth that we've had in our nation over the last four years. We need more immigrants."

Published

Since President Donald Trump was acquitted by the Republican Senate for his Ukraine scandal, he's "crossed a psychological line," aides confessed to Axios.

"I think it's a very positive development," said former Trump NSC staffer Rich Higgins.

Higgins was one of those fired by Trump's former National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster when he wrote a memo claiming there were threats on Trump's presidency by Marxists, globalists, bankers, Islamists, and establishment Republicans.
