Donald Trump Jr. whines after the New York Times exposes bulk-buying scheme for his ‘bestselling’ book

Published

on

Donald Trump Jr. on Friday complained to the hosts of “Fox & Friends” that the New York Times had placed a “deadly dagger” next to sales of his new book “Triggered” that indicates it was boosted by a significant bulk-buying campaign.

The New York Times says its policy is to make note of books that are helped by “institutional, special interest, group or bulk purchases” and it says that “such bulk purchases appear with a dagger (†)” on its bestseller list.

Appearing on Fox News, Trump Jr. whined that the paper does that “to a lot of conservative books” and suggested he was being unfairly targeted for his political beliefs.

“They must have been in major tears having to give me the Number One slot,” he said. “It must have driven them crazy, but I guess that’s their way of exerting a little bit of revenge by putting an asterisk without getting into the details.”

According to the New York Post, the Republican National Committee has been using the book as part of a fundraising drive, although the RNC says this shouldn’t be considered a “bulk purchase.”

“We haven’t made a large bulk purchase, but are ordering copies to keep up with demand,” an RNC representative told the paper. “Each book is sold to an individual who supports the Republican Party.”

BUSTED: National Archives caught doctoring exhibit to remove criticism of President Trump from women

Published

on

The National Archives were caught editing an artifact from the Trump administration to remove criticism of the president, according to a bombshell new report in The Washington Post.

The newspaper reported on a "large color photograph" at the National Archives exhibit marking the centennial of women's suffrage.

"The 49-by-69-inch photograph is a powerful display. Viewed from one perspective, it shows the 2017 march. Viewed from another angle, it shifts to show a 1913 black-and-white image of a women’s suffrage march also on Pennsylvania Avenue. The display links momentous demonstrations for women’s rights more than a century apart on the same stretch of pavement. But a closer look reveals a different story," the newspaper noted.
