Twitter Claps Back When Gaslighting Lara Trump Claims Donald Only Made $4 Total As POTUS

If you thought you’d heard all of the absurd bullshit that can possibly come from the mouth of a member of the Trump family, consider what Lara Trump claimed during an appearance on Fox News: Failed, one-term former President Donald Trump only made $4 a year as president.

Oh, and according to Lara, her father-in-law also “worked all day everyday for the American people.”

First we have the $4 a year statement, which The Independent notes, is apparently based on Donald donating his presidential salary:

She told Fox News viewers on Tuesday that the former US president took only $1 (£0.73) a year, or $4 in total, because he donated a large amount of his salary.

“I’m old enough to remember when we had a president who worked all day, everyday, for the American people, and by the way, took no salary.”

Not bad enough? Lara even asserted that Donald didn’t golf that much:

Lara Trump also said Donald Trump “clearly wasn’t golfing a quarter of his presidency.” But it was close: He played nearly 300 rounds over his single term in office, costing taxpayers more than $150 million. Millions of those tax dollars went into his own pocket since many of the golfing trips took place at his resorts.

However, while Fox Host Sean Hannity didn’t call Lara out for her blatant lies and gaslighting, Twitter certainly did, and she was quickly handed a well-deserved round of mockery and fact checking:

Eric Trump Has An Online Meltdown As New York AG Tish James Closes In On Him

It’s been a very bad 48 hours for Eric Trump, who found out that his phone records have been obtained by the House Select Committee on the January 6 Capitol insurrection and is now facing added pressure thanks for a court filing from New York Attorney General Letitia James.

The court filing hit the Trumps like a bolt of lightning, as James made it clear that she has “significant evidence” of criminal acts by the Trump Organization that she continues to pursue:

James, who launched her probe in 2019, also said in the court filing that the former president “had ultimate authority over a wide swath of conduct by the Trump Organization” that involved fraudulent misstatements to financial institutions, the Internal Revenue Service, and other parties.

That means bank and tax fraud. The Trumps have been suspected of those crimes for years.

But rather than remain calm and consult his attorneys, Eric Trump decided he’d have a childish meltdown and share it with the internet, firing off tweets that are certain to come back to haunt him and his family as the case against them moves forward.

What exactly was accomplished with that hissy fit? Does he think mean tweets are going to convince Ms. James to drop the case against him and the Trump Organization? If so, then Eric’s even dumber than he looks.

Eric quickly got hit with a massive dose of internet karma. Take a look:

NY Attorney General: Investigation Of Trump Has Uncovered ‘Significant Evidence’ Of Fraud

According to a court filing by New York Attorney General Letitia James, her investigation of former President Donald Trump and his company, the Trump Organization, has uncovered “significant evidence” of fraud by ex-president’s corporation.

NBC News reports:

The probe has uncovered evidence suggesting the company put a fraudulent value on multiple assets and misrepresented those values to financial institutions for economic benefit.

James, who launched her probe in 2019, also said in the court filing that the former president “had ultimate authority over a wide swath of conduct by the Trump Organization” that involved fraudulent misstatements to financial institutions, the Internal Revenue Service, and other parties.

She specifically mentioned the responsibility of two of the former president’s adult children, Donald Trump Jr. and Ivanka Trump.

In a statement issued on Tuesday, James wrote:

“Thus far in our investigation, we have uncovered significant evidence that suggests Donald J. Trump and the Trump Organization falsely and fraudulently valued multiple assets and misrepresented those values to financial institutions for economic benefit. The Trumps must comply with our lawful subpoenas for documents and testimony because no one in this country can pick and choose if and how the law applies to them.”

Trump has long been suspected of inflating the value of properties to obtain larger bank loans and then devaluing those same assets to reduce his tax liability. If it can be proven the Trump Organization behaved in such a manner, the company and its top officials (including the three oldest Tump children, Don Jr., Ivanka, and Eric) could be charged with bank and tax fraud.

Eric Trump has given a deposition, but refused to answer anything other than basic questions, according to court filings from James’ office:

“During his examination on Oct. 5, 2020, when asked a question that went beyond basic background information, Eric Trump delivered extended prepared remarks objecting to the investigation and invoking his right against self-incrimination.”

Ironically, Eric’s father has repeatedly said that only guilty people take the Fifth, remarking in 2017:

“The mob takes the Fifth. If you’re innocent, why are you taking the Fifth Amendment?”

Attorneys for Trump and the Trump Organization maintain the former president has done nothing wrong, with Ronald Fischetti commenting:

“They have been investigating this for three years. We are not concerned about it, because he has done nothing wrong.”

Sounds like it might be time to get concerned.

Capitol Insurrection Crime Eric Trump

January 6 Committee Has Obtained Eric Trump And Kimberly Guilfoyle’s Phone Records: Report

The House Select Committee investigating the January 6 insurrection at the U.S. Capitol has obtained the phone records of former President Donald Trump’s son, Eric, and those of Kimberly Guilfoyle, who is engaged to Donald Trump Jr.

According to CNN, the phone logs were obtained with a subpoena:

It appears to be the first time the select committee has issued a subpoena that targeted a member of the Trump family, in what marks a significant escalation of the investigation into Trump’s role in the January 6 insurrection. The decision to subpoena communication records involving the Trump family underscores the aggressive tack the committee is taking as it races to complete its investigation while battling Trump in court over access to documents from his administration.

Phone records will show who communicated with whom when it came to planning the Jan. 6 insurrection which left five people dead. They will also help the committee determine if there was a larger conspiracy involving individuals who may have been able to remain anonymous until now.

Eric Trump and Guilfoyle were instrumental in the attempt to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election:

Both Eric Trump and Guilfoyle played prominent roles in Trump’s “Stop the Steal” efforts, including fundraising off the lie that the election was stolen. Both spoke at the January 6 rally on the Ellipse that preceded the attack on the Capitol.

The records may also help the committee flesh out the text messages and phone records it has received from others, like former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows, as well as fundraisers and rally organizers.

So far, the Jan. 6 committee has issued subpoenas for the phone records of 100 individuals as they continue to investigate who was responsible for the violence that took place on that day.

The records the panel now has are very specific and came from multiple devices, CNN notes:

The newly obtained records include the cell phone number used by Eric Trump, according to sources familiar with the number. The cell phone number for Guilfoyle was confirmed by sources familiar with her number and her text messages. The committee previously identified this number as Guilfoyle’s number in text message exchanges with other witnesses.

Though it hasn’t yet been confirmed, it’s safe to assume the committee has also subpoenaed the phone records and logs of devices belonging to the ex-president and his son, Don Jr., both of whom are also under investigation for allegedly illegal financial dealings by the Trump Organization.

Trump’s Handpicked Georgia Senate Candidate Accused Of Having A ‘Porn Addiction’

According to failed former President Donald Trump, the perfect person to be the GOP nominee for the Senate in the state of Georgia is former NFL star Herschel Walker, so he has given his full endorsement to the ex-football player, commenting in September:

“Herschel Walker will never let you down. He was a great football player and will be an even better U.S. Senator—if that is even possible. He has my Complete and Total Endorsement!”

Considering Trump’s propensity for being sexually promiscuous, it probably won’t surprise you to learn that Walker is being accused of having an addiction to porn, according to one of his Republican primary opponents.

According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution:

“A review of Senate candidate Herschel Walker’s Instagram account shows he follows several accounts with links to racy material. One of the accounts has a name not suitable for a family newsletter. Several others also have accounts on OnlyFans, a social media platform popular with porn stars.”

Asked for comment, Walker’s campaign manager, Scott Paradise, called the accusation “stupid,” and added:

“He follows or is followed by tens of thousands of people.”

That explanation, however, didn’t satisfy Walker’s GOP rival, Agriculture Commissioner Gary Black, who wondered if perhaps Walker has an addiction to porn, with a spokesperson for Black’s campaign noting:

“Stalking, and domestic abuse are disqualifying by themselves but a porn addiction would be a significant third strike. That’s just handing the Senate to the Democrats. While personally sad, it’s definitely conduct unbecoming of a candidate for elected office.”

If Walker does win the Republican nomination, he would face incumbent Sen. Raphael Warnock (D).
