Trump’s niece rips president for ‘demonstrably fraudulent’ settlement

Published

on

President Donald Trump’s niece Mary on Thursday filed a 70-page legal brief responding to efforts to block her forthcoming tell-all book, Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World’s Most Dangerous Man.

“The legal fight over a tell-all by President Trump’s niece took another turn on Thursday when her lawyers filed papers to remove a temporary restraining order, arguing that the confidentiality agreement she signed 19 years ago was an unenforceable fraud,” The Daily Beast reported Thursday. “In an affidavit, Mary Trump said that when she inked the agreement, ending a dispute over her grandfather’s will, she believed the asset amounts in it were accurate, but learned they were bogus from a New York Times expose.”

The terms “fraud” or “fraudulently” show up 15 times in the brief (PDF).

“In their petition to the New York Supreme Court, Mary Trump’s lawyers wrote that it’s clear the president and his family ‘do not want the American public to hear’ their client’s story,” The Beast noted. “‘“But the First Amendment, ordinary rules of contract law, and bedrock equitable principles defeat Plaintiff’s extraordinary and unwarranted request for injunctive relief,’ they wrote.”

The book is due to hit bookshelves on July 28th. It is already at the top of Amazon’s best-seller’s list.

"Literally every new detail about these executive orders confirms that in addition to being wildly unconstitutional, they will do absolutely nothing to help anyone who's suffering."

On top of serious questions about the directive's legality and workability, experts are warning that President Donald Trump's executive action to extend the federal boost to unemployment benefits at $400-per-week—using $44 billion in funds meant for disaster relief—leaves out the poorest Americans by design.

Senior officials battling White House over urgent risk of reopening schools

Published

on

Public health officials are increasingly worried that states -- especially in the South -- are not seriously considering the coronavirus risks associated with reopening schools.

Trump administration officials have insisted to governors that reopening schools could be done safely, but senior officials have recently pressed White House officials to improve their messaging about the potential risks, reported The Daily Beast.

“If you have Trump going out there and saying everything is fine there’s a risk that that’s what people are going to think going back,” said one senior official. “There’s a real possibility that counties won’t implement all the measures outlined in the [Centers for Disease Control] guidelines and will just say, ‘Look, we’re doing the best we can and that’s it.’ There’s no one to enforce that stuff.”

WATCH: COVID truther goes on wild rant about communism after getting pulled over by cops

A South Carolina woman this week was caught on video going on a wild rant about Jesus and communism after a police officer pulled her over because her anti-vaccination signs were completely obscuring her car's rear window.

The video shows that the woman was driving a car that was covered in signs that protested not just economic shut downs, but also simply testing people for COVID-19.

After the officer pulled her over, she demanded to see his badge number and started yelling at him.

The officer tried to calm her down and told her there was no reason to be upset.

"Oh, no reason to get upset just because we're in communist Greenville, South Carolina?!" she yelled back. "I am not being disorderly! I have freedom of speech! You're being disorderly!"
