Republican vice presidential candidate Carly Fiorina interrupted her running mate Ted Cruz‘s press conference Friday to slam Donald Trump for bragging about receiving an endorsement from boxer Mike Tyson, a convicted rapist. “By the way, if I could just add, I was actually interested to see an endorsement the other day by Mike Tyson for Donald Trump and Donald Trump saying, ‘Wow, all the tough guys are endorsing me.’ Sorry, I don’t consider a convicted rapist a ‘tough guy,’” she said. “And I think it says a lot that Donald Trump’s campaign and his character that he is standing up and cheering for an endorsement by Mike Tyson,” she said. Tyson was convicted and sentenced to six years in prison for raping an 18-year-old women in the early 1990’s, but Trump defended him at Continue reading "Fiorina Slams Trump for Tyson Endorsement: ‘I Don’t Consider a Convicted Rapist a Tough Guy’"
In a move that should be familiar to many, another local paper has dropped a scathing critique of the Republican frontrunner that is likely to have little impact on how voters decide to cast their votes. The newest effort in the print’s war on Donald Trump comes compliments of the Indiana Star, just days ahead of the state-wide primary where Trump holds a modest +6.5 lead over Texas Senator Ted Cruz. Of course, the overall game paints a drastically different picture; Trump’s 994 delegates towers over Cruz’s 556, and despite the editorial from the Indy Star, blood is in the water for the real estate mogul to ensure victory. The piece — “Editorial: Although flawed, Kasich, Clinton offer best choices” — reads, “The biggest stakes on Tuesday are on the Republican side, where front-runner Donald Trump could move close to sealing the nomination with another Continue reading "Indiana Star Editorial Slams Trump Days Ahead of Primary: ‘Wholly Unsuited to Serve’"
According to a 1993 biography Lost Tycoon: The Many Lives of Donald J. Trump, Donald Trump‘s then-wife Ivana Trump told her friends that Donald was skilled at erecting skyscrapers, but not much else. It’s a nugget that received little notice at the time, but was recently reported on by Politico when they brought together Trump’s biographers to discuss the man.
Want to know where Trump inherited his entrepreneurial bent? Gwenda Blair traces it to his grandfather, who ran a series of restaurants in the Klondike that featured some of the best food in town, as well as private areas where ‘sporting ladies’ could ‘entertain’ miners.

Sean Hannity spent the majority of his show Thursday night awaiting Donald Trump‘s rally in Costa Mesa, Calif. To this end, he contributed two-thirds of his screen to keeping tabs on an empty stage across the country. Hannity and his guests largely confined their discussion to the right-side third of the screen, and this continued from the start of his show at 10:00 p.m. ET to when Trump finally took the stage at 10:43 p.m. ET. “Another huge rally,” Hannity observed. “Crowd size matters, doesn’t it?”
At a rally in Costa Mesa, Calif., Donald Trump repeated the vile hoax story about U.S. General John Joseph Pershing dipping bullets in pigs blood, shooting 49 Muslims and letting the 50th off with a warning. The crowd in California erupted in applause as he told it. Trump has used this story to illustrate how effectively you can combat radical Islamic terrorism if you refuse to be politically correct. Trump told this exact story at a rally in South Carolina back in February. Mediaite’s Josh Feldman wrote at the time:
There has been a persistent rumor for years that United States GeneralJohn Pershing cracked down on Islamic terrorism in the early 1900s by dipping bullets in pig’s blood and shooting Muslim prisoners with them. This is a hoax. It has never been proven.Continue reading "Trump Repeats Hoax Story About Shooting Muslims With Pigs Blood to Rapturous Applause"
When the conversation between Anderson Cooper and Megyn Kelly shifted to this year’s raucous election cycle, the CNN anchor praised Kelly for the way she handled the slings and arrows lobbed at her by an irate Donald Trump and his supporters. Cooper said that the moment when Kelly challenged Trump about his history of sexist remarks at the August debate was “remarkable.” He added that he had to give her “great props” for the “dignity” and “strength” she showed weathering the one-sided conflict the candidate waged on her. He said that the inquiries that first inspired Trump to accuse her of unfairness had been “completely legitimate questions.”
