Elizabeth Warren Slams Trump Again: ‘Maybe He’s Just a Lousy Businessman’

Even as Donald Trump‘s sand is still glowing from presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton‘s blistering speech on the economy, Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren is setting the internet ablaze with a new video also attacking Trump over his ballyhooed business acumen. In a video posted to MoveOn.org’s Facebook page Tuesday morning, Warren looses a fresh volley of cannonfire at Trump over his failure to produce his tax returns, as well as his documented history of not paying any taxes in some years. The four-minute video features some familiar Warren v. Trump boilerplate, plus a few bonus hits that are new on the program:
Maybe he’s just a lousy businessman who doesn’t want you to find out that he’s worth a lot less money than he claims — we can’t know for sure. But here’s what we do know: The last time his taxes were made public, Continue reading "Elizabeth Warren Slams Trump Again: ‘Maybe He’s Just a Lousy Businessman’"

XOXO: Here’s the Totally Unexpected Place You’ve Seen Trump Campaign Spox Hope Hicks

If you were a young girl in the early 2000s or knew a young girl in the early 2000s, the Gossip Girl books were undoubtedly a part of your life whether you liked it or not. Every middle schooler read and reread them, daydreaming of high school and parties and drama. Of course, not every middle schooler was bound for the kind of high school featured in the books, which were written about the ultra-wealthy teens of Manhattan’s Upper East Side. If you aren’t too familiar with the neighborhoods of New York City, think of it like this: Donald Trump lives about two blocks from where the UES begins. It’s a hoity-toity sort of place, to be sure. So, if you saw those books all over the place in 2005, you might get a weird tingle of nostalgia when you see the Trump campaign’s press secretary, Hope Hicks, who made Continue reading "XOXO: Here’s the Totally Unexpected Place You’ve Seen Trump Campaign Spox Hope Hicks"

Hillary Zings Donald Trump: Most of His Business Books ‘Seem to End at Chapter Eleven’

Former Secretary of State and current presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton built on her body of work Tuesday by attacking presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump over the economy. Hillary talked about her own plans for the economy before launching into a blistering, if familiar, set of criticisms of Donald Trump’s economic plans, comments on economic matters, and failure to produce his tax returns. Then, she kicked off a long riff on Trump’s business record with a zinger that had the crowd roaring:
He’s written a lot of books about business. They all seem to end at Chapter Eleven.
While less entertaining, the rest of Clinton’s speech was no more merciful, as Hillary called Trump “dangerous” on the economy. and quipped that “Just like he shouldn’t have his finger on the button, he shouldn’t have his hands on our economy. The economic speech follows a blistering foreign policy speech several Continue reading "Hillary Zings Donald Trump: Most of His Business Books ‘Seem to End at Chapter Eleven’"

Michelle Fields Denounces Trump’s Nepotism… During Interview With Chris Cuomo

vlcsnap-2016-06-21-13h07m54s259Things got a tad awkward when The Huffington Post’s Michelle Fields went on CNN’s New Day Tuesday and criticized Donald Trump for engaging in nepotism… while being interviewed by the relative of two New York governors Chris Cuomo. “This is someone who was born with a silver spoon in his mouth,” Fields said, dismissing the notion that Trump was an outsider candidate. “This is someone who has been involved with nepotism, helping his sister become a judge and get into a high position.” Although the nepotism remark was a small part of Fields’ response, Cuomo– the son of former New York Governor Mario Cumo and brother to current governor Andrew Cuomo— singled it out. “So, one side note, which is, as you probably know, Trump’s sister has a very good reputation as a judge,” he said.

#TrumpSoPoor: Twitter Mercilessly Taunts Trump Over Cash-Strapped Campaign

Twitter trolls are turning out in force today to point out how Donald Trump‘s campaign coffers have seen better days despite how often he brags about his wealth. Federal Election Commission filings from May reveal that the mogul’s fundraising money-machine pales in comparison to Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders. Whereas Trump spent campaign funds on his businesses and left his political team with only $1.3 million on hand, Sanders came out of May with $9.2 million at his disposal, while Clinton has $42.5 million. Trump frequently brags about how he’s self-funding his campaign (even though that’s not entirely true), and he said on Today that he will sustain his general election campaign with his own money if he must. Even so, Trump is still pushing out fundraising emails, and critics are flocking Twitter with unimpressed reactions.

Samantha Bee Uses Breaking Bad to Explain How the GOP Embraced Trump and Racism

Samantha Bee
went History 101 last night as she explained how Donald Trump‘s rise underlines an inherently racist element that has long existed inside of the GOP. Of course, like any good history teacher, Bee found a way to make it relatable and interesting by drawing parallels to one of America’s favorite TV series. The Full Frontal host acknowledged that not all conservatives are racists, but she noted that the GOP has a problem if such a major percentage of their voter base is in favor of Trump’s nativist tendencies and controversial antics. She proceeded to point out how the party leaders keep saying they’ll offer support, though they show obvious reservations with the idea that Trump’s campaign is themed on the party’s more discomforting aspects. “Trump isn’t desecrating the Republican Party, he’s just peeling back the glossy exterior to reveal the hideous symbiont that’s been lurking there for Continue reading "Samantha Bee Uses Breaking Bad to Explain How the GOP Embraced Trump and Racism"
