Giuliani’s new 20-year-old spokeswoman has a shady resume and links to Ukraine henchmen

President Donald Trump’s allies are still trying to figure out why Rudy Giuliani hired a 20-year-old Instagram personality as his director of communications.

The president’s personal attorney travels everywhere, including Ukraine, with Christianné Allen, a former teenage Trump campaign volunteer who has served since September as his media strategist and technology consultant, reported Politico.

“Nobody can figure out who the eff she is or how she got in there,” a friend of Giuliani told the website’s Daniel Lippman.

Allen signed on with consulting firm Giuliani Partners around the time when the former New York City mayor’s actions in Ukraine fell under investigation by the House Intelligence Committee and the U.S. Attorney’s office he once led, and even her own friends are surprised she landed such a high-profile job with so little experience.

“I don’t think she had a client like Rudy before, let alone worked as a press secretary,” said one friend.

Allen told Politico that she got the job after tackling “incredibly challenging questions” during multiple interviews with Giuliani and his staff.

Her Twitter bio, LinkedIn and an old personal website list previous experience as representative of the Trump Victory Finance Committee, video columnist for the Daily Caller, spokeswoman for Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign and executive director of the Middle Eastern Women’s Coalition.

However, representatives for those groups say her claims are either inflated or completely made up.

“She got the gig because she went around telling everybody that she was George Allen’s niece,” said one former official with Trump’s Virginia campaign, where other colleagues complained she didn’t work hard but eagerly sought credit.

Allen, the former Virginia governor and senator, says he’s unaware of any relationship to his family, and the younger Allen denies claiming to be his niece.

“There were a few officials on the campaign who thought we were related based on our last name,” she said. “I was asked one time in a public setting if I was related to him and I laughed and said no.”

Allen worked with several entities the Trump campaign shunned, including Students for Trump and neo-Confederate candidate Corey Stewart, until she got an internship with attorney Charles Gucciardo — who later invested $500,000 into a company started by indicted Giuliani associates Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman.

Giuliani responded publicly to Politico’s questions about Allen’s background with an angry denunciation on his Twitter account.

“Politico is about to write a malicious hit-piece on a Comms Director of mine,” Giuliani tweeted. “Not just because she’s pro-Trump but because she’s lined up one witness after the other, proving just how corrupt the Democrat party is. Politico has assisted this cover up for years. It’s a shame!”

He continued his rant in a subsequent text message.

“Your article is so filled with lies and misinterpretations, it stands out as a [sic] now an almost routine left wing hit piece on an exceptionally talented and really fine Christian Conservative woman and strong supporter of President Trump,” Giuliani wrote. “I’m disappointed that Politico is now joining the [sic] destroy the reputation of those the Left believes should not be entitled to support President Trump.”

Trump says governors are ‘very happy’ with the job he’s doing — even though they’re begging him for more supplies

Published

on

At the latest coronavirus task force press briefing on Monday, President Donald Trump boasted that "every one" of the state governors in America are "very happy" with the job he is doing to help them combat coronavirus.

His claim is at odds with numerous governors who have complained that the federal government is not doing enough to coordinate the delivery of medical equipment and forcing them into bidding wars with other states.

Trump even tried to add later in the speech that Gov. J. B. Pritzker (D-IL) was "a happy man" even though "he may not be happy when he talks to the press."

There’s a horrifying history of leaders saying there’s a ‘light at the end of the tunnel’

Published

on

President Donald Trump rang out in an all-caps tweet Monday morning "LIGHT AT THE END OF THE TUNNEL!" It was a comment he echoed from his Sunday press conference saying that the U.S. is in the home stretch of the coronavirus crisis. He went on to say that he anticipated the country reopening in a few weeks.

The quote was one that Washington Post columnist Karen Tumulty noted was one that many other leaders have used at frightening times.

"It is difficult to imagine a poorer, more chilling choice of words," she wrote. "Or one that more illuminates, if inadvertently, the consequences of the mixed-messages that Trump continues to send."
