Donald Trump GOP Whining Sexual Assault Sexual Harassment WTF?!

RNC Chair Gets Dragged For Accusing Andrew Cuomo Of ‘Sexual Misconduct’ After Repeatedly Defending Trump

Ronna McDaniel, chair of the Republican National Committee (RNC) thought she’d try and attack New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D), who has been accused of sexual harassment by two former female staffers, but her attempt fell flat as she was reminded of how she’d tried to downplay even worse allegations against former President Donald Trump.

McDaniel began her snarkfest during an appearance on the CBS News Sunday morning show “Face the Nation,” telling host Margaret Brennan:

“Don’t report- suppress reports on Hunter Biden and on Democrats like what’s happening with Andrew Cuomo and the immense failures that he had as governor … The media as a whole has ignored Andrew Cuomo. “

Then the RNC chair went on Twitter and doubled down:

Actually, a quick look at CNN’s online homepage shows three articles about the accusations against Gov. Cuomo:

But the factual paucity of McDaniel’s claims is the least of her sins, as plenty of people with Twitter accounts (which Donald Trump no longer has) reminded her as they referenced the dozens of sexual misconduct allegations against the failed, one-term president, who was even accused of “repeatedly raping” a 13-year-old girl with his longtime buddy Jeffrey Epstein, who pled guilty to sexually trafficking underage girls and was later found dead of “suicide” in his prison cell under the protection of Trump’s Department of Justice. Take a look:

Oh, Ronna! You really should shut the hell up and keep in mind that you’re trying to defend a pervert by shouting “fire!” as a four-alarm blaze burns what remains of your party to the ground.

Former Trump Adviser: The Donald Is Only ‘Running’ In 2024 To Make Money ‘Off These Rubes’

When he speaks to the Conservative Political Action Committee (CPAC) convention later this afternoon, it’s expected that failed, one-term former President Donald Trump will again whine that the 2020 election was stolen from him, attack President Joe Biden, and possibly announce that he plans to run for the White House once again in 2024.

But does Trump really believe he has a shot at winning the next election, or does he have another motive for running a second time?

According to Anthony Scaramucci, who served briefly in the Trump administration as communications director, Trump’s motive is simple: Grifting.

Scaramucci appeared on MSNBC Saturday, and he made it clear that the Donald is only thinking about making money, perhaps to play his legal bills:

“I think he’s going to run in 2024, this is the most money he’s ever made — just imagine making $300 million off of these rubes that he’s coning after the election with his big lie. So he’ll run again in 2024.

“Will he go to the finish line? Maybe not. There are 10 or 12 Republicans that see themselves as a future president. They’re going to try to find ways to undermine him, obviously, Governor Nikki Haley already started that process, so I don’t know if he gets to the finish line, but why would he not run and raise money off the rubes that he’s raising money from?”

However, Scaramucci then added that Trump’s plans to seek a second term in office may not go as smoothly as he wants:

“I think it could get interrupted by the potential criminal investigations that are going on and the potential indictments, so if he runs and there are no indictments and I think he has a clear path to that nomination, and that’s why Sen. McConnell said ‘Of course I’m going to support him’ — which is even more levels of hypocrisy, but yes, he runs, he wins the nomination. There is risk here, though, because of his potential tax fraud case and other cases — even the D.C. case related to the insurrection is a potential speed bump to him getting that nomination.”

Donald Trump may actually believe he’s going to run in 2024, but that election is over three years away, and whether it’s the courts or the creditors, Trump won’t be on the GOP ticket. He’s a loser, and losers always find a way to screw things up.

The Trump Organization Appears To Be On The Verge Of Complete Financial Collapse: Report

Donald Trump’s company, the Trump Organization, is hemorrhaging money, especially at its golf resorts, according to a new report from Forbes:

“The Trump Organization, which has … declared losses of roughly $90 million at its European golf resorts, according to an analysis of records from Ireland and the United Kingdom. Since the president opened his Aberdeen course in 2012, he has lost $15.5 million. Business has been even worse at Turnberry, which Trump bought in 2014 for $65 million. Despite investing an additional $75 million or so to fix up the property from 2014 to 2018, the place piled up losses of $58 million, according to an analysis of financial reports. The 2019 figures, first reported by the Scotsman, bring Turnberry’s total losses to $61 million since 2014.”

All of Trump’s golf resorts — which were once a major source of revenue for the company — have seen dramatic declines since Trump took office:

For example, at the 643-room Trump National Doral in Miami, Forbes notes:

“Revenues dropped to $87.5 million in 2016, and profits slid to $12.4 million. After election night, the resort lost 100,000 booked room nights, according to someone familiar with the business. Revenue plummeted to $75.4 million in 2017, and profits sank to $4.3 million.”

This latest bad financial news comes on top of the losses suffered by Trump’s hotels during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, which has also negatively impacted the Trump Organization’s bottom line, as was first reported earlier this year:

“Seventeen of Trump’s clubs and hotels have closed. The remainder of Trump properties are operating at a fraction of their normal capacity: hotels running with restaurants closed, golf clubs operating with clubhouses shut down, and golfers warned not to share carts or touch the flagsticks.”

Simply put, not only is Donald Trump and his company facing serious legal problems in the very near future, there’s a very real possibility that the Trump Organization could be on the verge of bankruptcy.

Looks like karma is starting to catch up with the ex-president in a major way.

Former Prosecutor Says Trump’s Kids May Have To Take The Fall For Their Father’s Crimes

Even though former President Donald Trump has been in the news recently regarding eight years of his tax returns being made available to the office of Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance, Jr., a former prosecutor said Saturday that the Donald’s three eldest children — Don Jr., Ivanka, and Eric — may be the ones who wind up taking the biggest legal hit when it comes to their father’s alleged crimes.

Former assistant Manhattan District Attorney Daniel Alonso was a guest on CNN. He was asked for his thoughts on the case being built by Vance. Alonso began by laying out the full range of crimes the former president may potentially be indicted for:

“He faces peril in multiple jurisdictions, but the Stormy Daniels payment is a discrete set of facts. And if they can get over one weird hurdle in New York on the falsification of business records, that could have legs. Michael Cohen was reimbursed by the Trump Organization and presumably the Trump Organization did not correctly list the information in their records. And there is that recording of Cohen and Trump talking about one of the payments. So I think that that could be a discrete case of falsification of business records, assuming that they can prove the felony count which the statute of limitations hasn’t yet expired.”

And then there’s the numerous alleged financial crimes which could also be lurking in the Trump tax filings, Alonso continued:

“The other stuff, it is certainly very much worth investigating. There are discrepancies between what they are telling the insurance companies and banks and tax authority, very substantial … I think a lot of that remains to be seen. There are — there is a lot of evidence, a lot of people to talk to, and there have been accountants and lawyers presumably who were all involved in this.”

Alonso then explained how it may wind up being the Trump spawn who have to pay the biggest price for their father’s wrongdoing:

“One last thing I want to say, it is not necessarily Donald Trump, right? He may not be the defendant. They may not have enough on these accounting issues to charge him, they may have enough to charge the Trump Organization or other executives, including the kids or others at the organization. Or the CFO. So there are lots and lots of unknowns here, and I wouldn’t assume that the defendant is definitely going to be Donald Trump.”

The possibility of the Trump children being in legal jeopardy raises what may be the biggest questions of all: Are Don Jr., Ivanka, and Eric willing to do decades in prison for daddy? Or would they turn state’s evidence to save their own skin?

Former Trump Chief Of Staff Suggests Don Jr. Or Ivanka Will Be Their Father’s Running Mate In 2024

When he speaks at the Conservative Political Action Committee (CPAC) on Sunday, one-term failed former President Donald Trump is expected to claim yet again that the 2020 election was stolen from him, laying the foundation for another run at the White House in 2024.

But something former Trump administration chief of staff Mark Meadows said seems to suggest that if and when the Donald does run again, his running mate will be either Don Jr. or Ivanka.

During an appearance on Fox News, Meadows remarked:

“We will see the start of planning for the next administration and I can tell you, the people that are at the top of that list, all of them have Trump as their last name.”

Granted, Meadows could mean that the 2024 nominee will have the last name of Trump, but does anyone actually believe that any Trump other than the 45th president will be running if he decides to? Certainly not.

If you read a bit between the lines, it certainly seems that Meadows is suggesting another Trump will run with the old man. And the only Trumps who have expressed an interest in politics are Don Jr. and Ivanka.

Also, consider the reports about the Donald naming Ivanka as his running mate in 2020 before he decided on Mike Pence.

Of course, all of this supposes that the former president (and members of his family) won’t be incarcerated on financial fraud charges and therefore have zero chance of winning anything at all. That’s entirely possible, and actually seems more likely than another President Trump, no matter what first name you insert.

The “Trump movement” has nothing to do with politics and everything to do with keeping the Trump cult of personality alive.
