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.”

The internet is wondering if Fox News’ Jeanine Pirro was drinking before her Saturday night show

Published

on

Moments after clips if the opening of Jeanine Pirro's regular Saturday night show on Fox News were posted online, Twitter commenters were speculating that the former prosecutor may have been drinking, likely due to her demeanor and slightly disheveled look.

After her "Justice with Judge Jeanine" show was delayed due to "technical difficulties" for 15 minutes, the host appeared and apologized for the delay before she began to discuss Donald Trump's plan to take the U.S. out of quarantine by Easter, telling viewers, "Just the other … day the president talked, or was hoping, about the possibility of reopening everything on Easter Sunday, uh, in a way where we could kind of come out of this quarantine, as loose as it may be, that we’re involved in."

Published

on

Digital surveillance and smartphone technology may prove helpful in containing the coronavirus pandemic -- but some activists fear this could mean lasting harm to privacy and digital rights.

From China to Singapore to Israel, governments have ordered electronic monitoring of their citizens' movements in an effort to limit contagion. In Europe and the United States, technology firms have begun sharing "anonymized" smartphone data to better track the outbreak.

These moves have prompted soul-searching by privacy activists who acknowledge the need for technology to save lives while fretting over the potential for abuse.
