Don Jr. And Eric Gave Trump Org. CFO A $200K Raise After They Discovered He Was Cooking The Books

Allen Weisselberg, the former CFO of the Trump Organization, said said under oath Friday that Donald Trump Jr. and Eric Trump knew he was engaging in tax fraud on behalf of the company yet gave him a $200,000 a year raise after they found out about his crimes.

The New York Post reports that Don Jr. and Eric discovered Weisselberg’s illegal actions in 2017. Specifically, he and two other top Trump Org. executives were getting perks they didn’t report as income on their taxes, but the ex-president’s sons weren’t upset by the discovery.

The sons learned of the tax cheating during a “cleanup process” the company underwent with tax auditors when Trump took office as president, Weisselberg said.

When prosecutor Susan Hoffinger asked the longtime chief financial officer if the Trump Org. demoted or punished him in light of the discovery, he said no.

“Were you in fact given a raise … that totaled approximately $200,000?” Hoffinger asked.

“Correct,” Weisselberg replied on his final day of testimony.

Weisselberg pleaded guilty in August of accepting $1.7 million worth of unreported benefits that included free rent on an expensive apartment on the Upper West Side, luxury cars, and private school tuition payments for his grandchildren.

The Trump Organization is accused of helping Weisselberg and other top managers cheat on their taxes for 15 years by falsifying reports to the government.

Today’s revelations come as Trump, his children, and his company are facing massive civil penalties in a case brought by New York Attorney General Letitia James. If Trump Org. is found guilty in that case, the company could face massive financial penalties and the imposition of a economic “death penalty” that prohibit them from ever doing business in the state of New York again. Trump Org. is headquartered in the Empire State even though the failed former president now lives in Palm Beach, Florida, at his Mar-a-Lago estate.

The one-term, twice-impeached ex-president it also facing the prospect of being charged under the Espionage Act for hoarding classified documents at Mar-a-Lago in violation of federal law.

Donald Trump Jr. Elections GOP Social Media

Don Jr. Prematurely Claims GOP Midterm Victory And Gets Pelted With Internet Mockery

At exactly 8:15 p.m. Tuesday night, Donald Trump Jr., the son of failed, one-term, twice-impeached former president Donald Trump sent out a tweet that he probably wishes he hadn’t.

Bloodbath? Maybe as it applies to his old man’s planned “comeback” on the political scene, but if the returns proved anything, it’s that the majority of voters are sick and tired of Trump, his lies about the 2020 election, and his attempts to blame everyone but himself for his massive failure in the last presidential race and the midterm.

Perhaps the most crushing loss for Trump was that Democrat John Fetterman beat GOP candidate Mehmet Oz and will be the next senator from the state of Pennsylvania. That seat was previously held by Pat Toomey, who decided not to seek another term.

So where exactly is the bloodbath? A look the mockery aimed at Don Jr. on Twitter suggests it might be in the bashing he took online.

Don Jr. And Eric Demanded A Stake In Their Father’s Truth Social Company: Report

Proving the old adage that the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree, a new report suggests that Donald Trump Jr. and his brother, Eric, are indeed grifters just like their old man, and even demanded a stake in his Truth Social company even though they played no role in the formation of the social media site which has been plagued by financial problems since it went live in February.

Will Wilkerson, a co-founder of Truth Social, told The Washington Post that Don Jr. and Eric asked for a “handout” even though they deserved nothing.

“They were coming in and asking for a handout. They had no bearing in this company … and they were taking equity away from hard-working individuals.”

Wilkerson was one of the very first Trump Media & Technology Group employees and later served as vice president of operations until Thursday when he was forced off the board by the ex-president. Why? Because he failed to be sufficiently obedient to Trump when it came to issues such as making sure that former first lady Melania Trump was also given stock in the company, even if that meant having to take stock from someone who actually worked at the company.

Now, however, Wilkerson is cooperating the Securities and Exchange Commission, which suspects possibly illegal behavior by the former president and others who are associated with Truth Social.

Included among the evidence Wilkerson has handed over to investigators is a computer log he kept while he worked for Trump Media. That log includes mentions of Don Jr.:

“Trump Jr. ‘needs a bedtime story and some love.'”

Not only does the apple not fall far from the tree, neither does the grifting.

Donald Trump Jr. Joe Biden WTF?!

Don Jr. Proclaims He Has ‘Two Words’ For Viewers: ‘Joe Biden Is A Freaking Idiot’

It’s one thing to be a pompous ass with a moronic opinion. But it’s quite another to not even know how to count.

That’s the lesson Donald Trump Jr. decided to give us today, and he did it while trying to make fun of someone else for the very same thing he did.

Speaking on Friday, President Joe Biden remarked:

“Let me start off with two words: Made in America.”

OK, so the president made a mistake. But let’s recall that his predecessor (who just so happens to be Junior’s daddy) once called Tim Cook, the CEO of Apple, Tim Apple.

As he often does, Trump tried to lie his way out of the embarrassment, posting a incredibly lame excuse on Twitter:

At a recent round table meeting of business executives, & long after formally introducing Tim Cook of Apple, I quickly referred to Tim + Apple as Tim/Apple as an easy way to save time & words. The Fake News was disparagingly all over this, & it became yet another bad Trump story!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 11, 2019

And yet Don Jr. (a.k.a. Traitor Tot) thought he’d make a video and try to troll Biden, despite the fact that his trolling almost always comes back to bite him right on his rump.

In the video, Junior proudly proclaims, “I’ve got two words for you. Two words for you: Joe Biden is a freakin idiot.”

Maybe Junior is trying to mock Biden by using more words than he needed, but Twitter users weren’t impressed, and they quickly used the video to lay a major social media beatdown on the ex-president’s clueless spawn.

So who exactly is the freaking moron? Go look in the mirror, Junior, provided you’re not using the mirror for something else.

Donald Trump Jr. Social Media WTF?!

Don Jr. Calls The Democratic Party A ‘Cult’ – Twitter Reminds Him Who The Real Cultist Is

Donald Trump Jr. is absolutely furious that President Joe Biden dared urge Floridians to get vaccinated for COVID as they prepared for Hurricane Ian, and he wants us to believe that encouraging vaccinations for COVID means you’re in a cult.

In a video he made and posted on social media, a clearly agitated and perhaps wasted Don Jr. went on an extended rant, remarking:

“Is this a cult? What does it have to do with anything? There are so many more important things to dealing with a situation, an emergency situation, that could arise from a hurricane that being vaccinated is not one of them, folks. Not even, like, remotely, not even pretend. I’m gonna say that this is my opinion because I know that someone will try to fact-check me for it, not based on actual science, but they’ll have a couple of people who agree, and they wanna push their crap upon us, and so they’ll say I’m spreading misinformation, so this is just my opinion.”

He then added:

“It literally has no bearing on the situation at hand. If you’re dealing with 150 mile an hour winds, I assure you your vaccination status means nothing to you, your family, your friends.”

Oh, and while he was at it, the gun fetishist that lives inside Don Jr. also suggested firearms were more needed in a hurricane than anything else.

It’s a cult if you encourage people to get vaccinated? That’s pretty rich coming from a man whose father has openly courted the wackos from the QAnon movement who think Satan-worshiping pedophiles control all of the world’s governments and feast on the adrenal glands of children in order to stay eternally young. In other words, it’s a variation on the anti-Semitic trope that claimed for centuries Jews used the blood of children to make matzah. It’s wrong, it’s disgusting, and it’s dangerous.

It would be interesting to see if Junior believes the bullshit pumped out by the QAnon nutjobs, but he refuses to sit for an interview with a real journalist who would ask him such a question and hold his feet to the fire until he gave a yes or no response.

Twitter wasted no time reminding Don Jr. of his own hate speech and cultism, and obsession with weapons of mass murder.

Oh, and there’s also the fact that President Biden didn’t say what Don Jr. claims.

Nice try, Junior, but less drugs and more actual research would help.
