The Times exposé, headlined “Trump Engaged in Suspect Tax Schemes as He Reaped Riches from His Father,” was posted on Oct. 2, 2018. While it got plenty of attention at the time, and went on to win the Pulitzer Prize, there was plenty else going on that week, including the pending confirmation of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. Even much of the coverage of the Supreme Court decision last week on Trump’s taxes seemed to ignore that a lot of information about the finances of the empire already have been reported. … [Read more...] about Mary Trump Book Review: In The Chaos Of Donald Trump’s Presidency, Will His Niece’s Tell-All Matter?

In that reality, Trump is the law-and-order president even as he foments violence in the streets of Portland, Oregon, and Washington, D.C. — or, in the case of Kenosha, Wisconsin, defends a 17-year-old vigilante (and Trump supporter) who allegedly shot three people, killing two of them. Trump’s handling of the Covid-19 pandemic is a great “success story,” to quote son-in-law Jared Kushner, no matter that the death toll in the U.S. outpaces most of the developed world. He inherited a “stagnant” economy (he didn’t) and turned it into the “greatest economy in the history of the world” (it wasn’t), only to be sidetracked by a disease he vowed would “disappear one day” (it hasn’t). Most brazen of all, Trump clings to the notion that he’s an outsider who will raze the existing political order, despite having stocked his administration with lobbyists, faithfully done the deregulatory bidding of oil and coal … [Read more...] about How Far Will Donald Trump Go to Win?
President Trump doesn’t have the greatest track record when it comes to honoring people other than himself. The president kicked off Mother’s Day by releasing a hostage-style video tribute to women throughout history, and then spent the rest of the day at one of his golf properties tweeting about saving Chinese jobs. Trump fared even worse on Memorial Day, when he saw dead soldiers as an opportunity for some early morning self-aggrandizement. … [Read more...] about Trump’s Support of the Military Comes with a Catch
You’ve been with your wife Shannon Tweed for over thirty years. What’s the secret to a long relationship?Our DNA says we manufacture hundreds of millions of sperm every day. We can’t take Thursdays off. We have the eternal and primordial urge to merge. The problem that girls have is that just as they see a six foot two guy with a deep voice and think, “Now, that’s a mature man.” No he’s not, he’s a fourteen year old horny boy. He’s not going to mature until his hair grays, and he won’t ever fully mature. You’re going to have to keep him on a short leash because young guys never want to get married, they don’t want kids. It’s not in our DNA. Our DNA says, “Go hunt, do whatever the fuck you want.” The last thing our DNA wants to hear is, “Where are you going?” … [Read more...] about The Last Word: Gene Simmons on Kanye West, Justin Bieber and Donald Trump
A theme throughout President Trump’s career seems to be that anyone who plays by the rules is a sap or a fool. Is that true?So, the answer would be 100 percent. I’ve heard him talk like this. Anyone who plays by the rules he deems a sucker. Trump believes that he is above the law. And he actually thinks it’s a positive quality to skirt the law. He thinks that’s how to really get shit done, to be above it all and be able to do whatever you want. And it points to his desire for total power to be above everyone else, and not have to play by the rules that everyone else plays by —simply because he believes that he’s better than that. … [Read more...] about Michael Cohen Says Sorry.
