Trump Rails Against ‘Failing and Crooked’ NY Times For ‘Boring’ Report on Gulf Prince Offering Campaign Assistance

President Donald Trump went on a Twitter tirade Sunday against a New York Times exposé revealing his son and other campaign officials met with a Gulf emissary who offered a hand in winning the 2016 election. Trump blasted the report, calling the publication “Failing and Crooked,” while adding in a jab at Hillary Clinton. He contended that the report was merely “a long & boring story” showing Special Counsel Robert Mueller‘s investigation “has found nothing on Russia & me.”
But it didn’t stop there. Launching into one of his trademark Continue reading "Trump Rails Against ‘Failing and Crooked’ NY Times For ‘Boring’ Report on Gulf Prince Offering Campaign Assistance"

Twitter Flips Out Over News of Another Don Jr. Trump Tower Meeting: He’s ’In a Lot of Trouble’

The news of Donald Trump Jr. having a second Trump Tower meeting lit up Twitter this afternoon, with people expressing shock while also speculating on what this could mean:

NYT Reveals Another Don Jr. Trump Tower Meeting: Gulf Emissary Reportedly Offered Help to Win Election

With renewed focus this week on the infamous Donald Trump Jr. Trump Tower meeting, the New York Times has broken news of another meeting the President’s son took months later, prior to the 2016 election. Per the Times, this meeting was arranged by Blackwater founder Erik Prince and concerned ways to help the Trump campaign:
The emissary, George Nader, told Donald Trump Jr. that the crown princes who led Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates were eager to help his father win election as president. The social media specialist, Joel Zamel, extolled his company’s ability to give an edge to a political campaign; by that time, the firm had already drawn up a multimillion-dollar proposal for a social media manipulation effort to help elect Mr. Trump. The company, which employed several Israeli former intelligence officers, specialized in collecting information and shaping opinion through social media.

Why Don Jr.’s ‘Trump Tower Meeting’ Story is Nonsensical

From the moment we first learned the details of the now infamous mid-2016 meeting at Trump Tower between the top brass of the Trump campaign and apparent representatives of Russia, it was obvious to thinking people that President Donald Trump was lying when he claimed not know about it at the time. With today’s release of the transcript of Donald Trump Jr.’s testimony to the Senate, that is now the only remotely logical conclusion to which anyone not brainwashed as a member of Trump’s “Cult 45” can come. Don Jr.’s remarkable inability to remember hardly anything about what would seem like a pretty darn memorable development—the fact that Russia was expressing interest in helping provide dirt on Hillary Clintonhas already been rightly and roundly mocked. But the overall absurdity of the Trump family story here has not, to my knowledge, been fully explored. In short, Continue reading "Why Don Jr.’s ‘Trump Tower Meeting’ Story is Nonsensical"

Twitter Totally Isn’t Buying Don Jr.’s Senate Testimony: ‘Absurd Even For a Tragically Incurious Dolt’

You knew the Twitterverse was going to have a lot to say now that the Senate Judiciary Committee has released their transcripts from Donald Trump Jr.’s testimony about his meeting with a Kremlin lawyer. Senator Chuck Grassley (R-IA) released thousands of documents from the hearing where the president’s son was grilled about the 2016 Trump Tower meeting where he and his father’s staff met with Russian officials. The hope was that the Trump campaign would collect damaging information that could cripple Hillary Clinton‘s presidential campaign. The transcript shows Trump Jr. insisting that his father didn’t know about the meeting in advance, but it also includes tidbits like the part where it appears Trump Sr. played a role in drafting the false statement on why the meeting took place. Since the excerpts have already provided some interesting new information, Twitter users are taking notice and predicting that this will Continue reading "Twitter Totally Isn’t Buying Don Jr.’s Senate Testimony: ‘Absurd Even For a Tragically Incurious Dolt’"

NEW: Senate Transcripts Show Donald Trump Jr. Has a Really Hazy Memory on All Things Russia

The Senate Judiciary committee released transcripts of its interviews with Donald Trump Jr. on Wednesday — about the 2016 Trump Tower meeting with a Russian lawyer. And in some of the excerpts, the president’s son displayed a pretty hazy memory. Notably, according to the AP, Trump Jr. could not recall speaking with his father, President Donald Trump, about the Russia investigation.
