Over the weekend, Donald Trump’s youngest daughter, Tiffany, got married at the disgraced former president’s Mar-a-Lago resort.
The ex-president’s other daughter, Ivanka, posted photos of the Trump women in their wedding dresses. But she cropped Kimberly Guilfoyle — who is engaged to Donald Trump Jr. — out of the photos before she posted them online.
Eagle-eyed social media users noticed something was amiss after Ivanka Trump seemingly cut Guilfoyle, fiancée of Donald Trump Jr., out of a photo. A picture was posted online featuring six women, with Ivanka Trump next to the bride and Guilfoyle at the end of the row. When Ivanka Trump later posted a selection of photos on Instagram and Twitter, Guilfoyle had been cropped out of the original image, so that Tiffany would be central with two women on either side of her.
Four hours later, Ivanka reposted the wedding photo and Guilfoyle had been restored to the image, but chatter had already started online regarding what exactly was going on inside the Trump family.
Roger Stone has long been a confidant to failed, one-term, twice-impeached former president Donald Trump, and he managed to weasel a pardon out of Trump in December of 2020 after having been convicted of lying to Congress, obstruction, and witness tampering.
But when Stone again approached members of the Donald’s inner circle in the final days of the Trump administration and begged for a preemptive pardon for his role in the January 6, 2021 attack on the U.S. Capitol, he came up empty, and it enraged him.
How do we know that? Well, The Daily Beast managed to get a look at an upcoming documentary, and what it shows is Stone letting loose on everyone associated with the ex-president.
After Roger Stone wasn’t granted a post-Jan. 6 pardon, he grew so upset that he suggested fighting Jared Kushner, the man tapped as the point person for handling 11th-hour Trump pardons. In new exclusive footage obtained by The Daily Beast, a yet-to-be-released documentary captured Stone’s meltdown after learning on President Joe Biden’s inauguration day that he wouldn’t be granted a second coveted legal protection, this time to shield from any Jan 6 legal fallout.
“He has 100 security guards. I will have 5,000 security guards. You want to fight. Let’s fight. Fuck you.” (The filmmakers remain unsure of who Stone directed this remark towards.) “Fuck you and your abortionist bitch daughter,” he concluded, referring to Ivanka Trump, according to the filmmaker Christoffer Guldbrandsen who said there was “no doubt” who Stone was ranting about.
Stone managed to avoid going to prison once, but as more information is uncovered by the House Select Committee investigating January 6, it seems likely that he’ll be facing new charges and won’t be able to count on a pardon.
If anyone belongs behind bars for his lifetime of crime, it’s Roger Stone.
New York Attorney General Letitia James has rejected a settlement offer from disgraced former president Donald Trump and is moving forward with her civil fraud case against the ex-president and his company, the Trump Organization, according toThe New York Times, which includes filing suit against “at least one” of his three oldest children.
The latest twist in one of the many cases hanging over the head of Trump, his company, and his family would set the stage “for a lawsuit that would accuse Mr. Trump of fraud,” according to the Times report.
Donald Trump Jr., Eric Trump, and Ivanka Trump have all served as senior executives at the Trump Organization, carrying the title of “executive vice president” over the years.
James’ investigation is focused on alleged financial crimes committed by Trump and his privately-held company, including the manipulation of assets to obtain larger bank loans and reduce tax assessments.
A lawsuit from Ms. James would supercharge their drawn-out battle, offering her an opportunity to deliver a significant blow to the former president and his business, which she vowed before taking office to ‘vigorously investigate.’ If the case goes to trial and Mr. Trump loses, a judge could impose financial penalties and restrict the former president’s business operations in New York — all potentially in the midst of a 2024 presidential campaign that he is expected to join.
Earlier this year, the former president testified before a grand jury impaneled by James, invoking his Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination more than 400 times, The Washington Postreports:
Trump emerged from the question-and-non-answer session with praise for the “very professional” way Attorney General Letitia James’s team handled the meeting, in which he refused more than 400 times to answer questions about his businesses, property valuations and loans, according to a person with knowledge of the discussion. This person, speaking on the condition of anonymity to describe the closed session, said Trump stated his name, formally declared his Fifth Amendment right not to incriminate himself, and from then on replied to many questions with two words: “Same answer.”
James could potentially impose the corporate “death penalty” on the Trump Organization if it’s found to have violated the law.
Granted, disgraced, one-term, twice-impeached former president Donald Trump does a lot of things that leave us scratching our heads and wondering what in the hell is going on, but this time he seems to have outdone himself.
According to The Daily Mail, Trump was seen leaving Trump Tower this week with an aide who also held a similar job in the Trump administration.
Donald Trump appeared unbothered walking out of his Manhattan Tower Wednesday afternoon with his mid-twenties communications aide Margo Martin – the same day he raged at a report the FBI seized his medical history in the Mar-a-Lago raid.
Another aide placed a large stack of loose paperwork into the vehicle that Trump boarded in his motorcade out of New York City, according to images obtained exclusively by DailyMail.com.
The departure from Trump Tower comes as a report emerged Wednesday that Trump was keeping at his Mar-a-Lago home nuclear secrets for an unnamed foreign nation, which were found in the FBI raid of the former president’s residence last month.
So far, so good. Until you take a look at the aforementioned Margo Martin:
Does Ms. Martin remind you of anyone? Maybe the Donald’s wife, Melania, when she was younger? You decide. Here’s Melania shortly after the two were married in 2005:
The two could almost be sisters.
So what do we know about Margo Martin? Thanks to MEAWW.com, we know the following:
She is currently the Deputy Director of Communications for his Save America PAC.
Martin was a familiar face at Trump’s press meets and she is known for cajoling journalists in and out of the Oval Office or other venues. She is currently heading the communication team which has members including Nick Luna, formerly the personal assistant to the then President, and Will Russell, director of the Trump White House advance team. Molly Michael, former Oval Office coordinator, and Cassidy Hutchinson who used to be an aide to former chief of staff Mark Meadows. The team is famous for helping Trump set up his next plan, specifically those of running for office again in 2024. Meanwhile, Trump’s visit has led to heated discussions as it came on the same day as a report emerged that he was keeping nuclear secrets at Mar-a-Lago for an unnamed foreign nation, which was found in the FBI raid.
Makes you wonder, What does Melania think about all this? She probably doesn’t care. After all, the less time she has to spend with the morbidly obese and deeply disturbed Donald, the better.
The funeral for Ivana Trump — failed, one-term former president Donald Trump’s first wife — was held last week, and while such occasions are naturally bittersweet, people generally use the occasion to say kind and tender things about the deceased.
Unless, of course, you happen to be a member of the Trump family, and then the entire affair turns into a surreal sendoff that must have felt more like a celebrity roast than a fond adieu.
According to Arwa Mahdawi of The Guardian, the so-called eulogies given by Ivana’s two oldest children, Don Jr. and Ivanka, suggest that the level of dysfunction in the family is even more pronounced than any of us ever imagined.
Let’s start with the eldest: Donald Jr. The warm memory of his mother that he chose to recount at her funeral? The time she disciplined him so hard she had to stop from exhaustion. Once, when they were kids, said Donald Jr, his sister Ivanka accidentally destroyed an expensive chandelier. Ivanka – it will shock you to hear – lied and said it was her brother’s fault; Ivana then pulled out a wooden spoon to teach Donald Jr a lesson. He kept insisting that Ivanka was the responsible party, but, by the time he had finally convinced his mother of his innocence, she was “too tired to deal with Ivanka.”
Even stranger was what Ivanka chose to reveal about her late mother:
Parasites? When you think about it, that’s the perfect description of what has been taking place inside the Trump family ever since Donald was born back in June of 1946, which suggests that when it comes time to eulogize him, the kids may just skip the event and go home to count what’s left of the Trump “empire” after daddy nearly flushed the entire thing down his gold-plated toilet.
