The single most revealing fact in the new Trump books

  • CNN

    Is Trump good or bad at controlling his narrative in the media? -Chris

    • Philoctetes

      Bad. He is a con-man, and the only people whom have ever bought his pile of crap are gullible or stupid. Gullibility is not a judgement, it is a result of purposefully poor education and systematic oppression. Omorossa had said that he looked like a rich guy from a comic book or movie, but her perspective was that of a black child, raised in the projects. People born to the middle class and above have a better idea of what a truly wealthy man is like, and they are not visibly insecure. Truly wealthy men and women do not generally brag about themselves-they do not have to. donnie dump is only good at fooling a small segment of people, and that is why the gop was the perfect target for him. The gop establishment is greedy enough to not care about the damage, and the voters are either greedy or dumb enough to be led.

      He does well and plays you a fool because he knows exactly what you’re going to report on. Anytime Donald Trump takes a shit your news channel reports it as terrorist activity a threat to democracy a threat to national security this is why no one takes your party seriously. This is why you’ve lost so many supporters because of the radicalization of your party. This is why we have open borders now so the Democrats can get the support they actually showed during the election that they did not have got to cover up your life somehow

      Obviously he's got some ability with the media, because if he didn't nobody would consider him anything besides a corny failed star and bad mob boss... he's disgusting and disgraceful but apparently he has a charisma I just don't get.

We all got a good result: we got 45 out of the WH If the legal system works right, 45 will get several felony convictions, keeping him off the ballot. We have been conducting presidential elections for o ver 200 years, we know how to do them right. There was no fraud in 2020.

    But did any of the interviews with Trump yield any actual information? I am guessing no. Will CNN ever report on how much money they made off of 24/7 Trump coverage over 5 years? What percentage of CNN's bottom line has been directly due to Trump?

    0:32 mins. EXACTLY! That's what I literally sorted at work when listening to the audible version. I embarrassed myself. But it is like Trump is sooooo big of a Narcissist and that he is just willingly handing over the next election to the democrats for next year. And the GOP no longer have spines and are just waiting to die off because they know the Era of the U.S has changed their time has run out and they are just struggling an low key panicing. If anything this would be the prefect time for the independent party or green party. To RIGHT now find funding and start campaigning. Because when election hits and they get people the Republicans are going to be desperate on figuring out how to get the young people on their side. The crowd they are supporting is dying out give it another generation or two and it's pretty much gone.

    That’s a perfect example to prove that it’s not the right who are obsessed with trump it’s the left. These are all lefty derangement syndrome books that are mostly full of lies, mindreading and assumptions by people who in their warped minds saw trump some kind of cartoon villain rather than the first president in a while who was truly against corruption and fir the people. That’s why the media, establishment politicians, deep state, big tech, big pharma and other corporate corrupt colluded to get him out. They wanted Biden to go back to corruption as usual. It’s not hard to figure out. Just can’t be brainwashed by the mockingbird media apparatus.

    Thanks for the video! Love your stuff! My husband retired from teaching special ed to middle school kids. The only difference between Trump and these kids is not their age, it's the amount of money he supposedly has. He has two things - he can't read, and he has an insatiable desire for attention, good or bad, it doesn't matter which. Even being President was never enough.

    “Do we love law enforcement or what?” President Donald Trump asked a cheering crowd during his “Make America Great Again” political rally Oct. 12 in Lebanon, Ohio. “Thank you, law enforcement!” the president later told officers, who he called “heroes.” But when Lebanon City Hall sent Trump’s campaign a $16,191 invoice for police and other public safety costs associated with his event, Trump didn’t respond. Trump’s campaign likewise ignored Lebanon officials’ follow-up reminders to cover the sum - one rich enough to fund the entire police force for nearly two days in this modest city of 21,000, between Dayton and Cincinnati. The bill remains unpaid. “There’s a lot of benefit when a president comes here: economic benefits, more visibility for our community,” Lebanon Mayor Amy Brewer said. “But I would hope and believe the Trump campaign would pay its bills. It’s our taxpayer dollars.” The red ink Trump poured on Lebanon’s thin blue line is no anomaly. At least nine other city governments - from Mesa, Arizona, to Erie, Pennsylvania - are still waiting for Trump to pay public safety-related invoices they’ve sent his presidential campaign committee in connection with his political rallies, according to interviews with local officials and municipal records obtained by the Center for Public Integrity. Some invoices are three years old. In all, city governments say Trump’s campaign owes them at least $841,219. vanityfair com/news/2020/06/trump-will-make-rally-goers-promise-not-to-sue-if-they-get-covid-19 cbsnews com/news/trump-rally-waiver-tulsa-ok-coronavirus-wont-sue-covid-19/ Must Trump pay? That depends on who you ask. The cities are adamant Trump should pay up. But in many of these cases, there are no signed contracts between the municipal governments and the Trump campaign. The cities dispatched police officers to secure Trump’s events because they believe public safety required it - and the U.S. Secret Service asked for it. Reached for comment, Trump campaign Director of Operations Sean Dollman referred questions to the campaign’s communications staff, which did not respond to numerous requests. The Fraternal Order of Police, which endorsed Trump in 2016, has no formal position on whether presidential campaigns should pay municipalities’ bills for police protection, said Chuck Canterbury, the organization’s president. “That is the government’s responsibility in each local area,” he said. But presidential candidates should consider paying cities’ police bills even if they don’t believe they are legally required to do so, other police advocates said. “The fiscal impact on local governments, especially during campaign seasons in critical vote states or communities, can be significant,” said Richard Myers, executive director of the Major Cities Chiefs Association and former police chief for several cities, including Colorado Springs, Colorado, and Newport News, Virginia. “When one considers how much money campaigns raise and spend, it does not seem unreasonable to expect some degree of reimbursement for such demands for service.” ‘A CHARACTER INTEGRITY ISSUE’ Five municipal public safety bills - from Green Bay and Eau Claire, Wisconsin; Tucson, Arizona; Burlington, Vermont and Spokane, Washington - date back to 2016, before Trump became president. Other aren’t so bullish. “Let’s be honest, when does Trump ever pay his bills?” Spokane City Councilmember Kate Burke asked - an allusion to Trump’s many unresolved deals and disputes from his decades in business. UPDATE CORONAVIRUS AND INEQUALITY City leaders to Trump: help us fight the coronavirus by paying your bills READ The largest single invoice, $470,417, is also the most recent: it’s from El Paso, Texas, where officials have publicly pilloried the Trump campaign for not covering costs associated with Trump’s Feb. 11 campaign rally near the Mexican border. (Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke conducted a much smaller campaign rally in El Paso the same day and paid his $21,021 police bill on time, KVIA-TV reported in May.) “I’m hopeful they’ll pay. I’m hopeful they’ll do what’s right. People that don’t pay their bills - that’s a character integrity issue,” El Paso Mayor Dee Margo told the Center for Public Integrity. But municipal policies vary. Many of the more than 60 cities Trump visited since his inauguration for Make America Great Again rallies have policies against billing any politician for police costs. Several more cities calculated the cost of providing public safety services for Trump rallies but said they chose not to bill Trump’s campaign. President Donald 'm a nurse and have worked with patients with Dementia and Alzheimer's for 30 years. Joe Biden clearly clearly has some form of Dementia and needs to retire. This rigorous schedule is will ruin him.Municipality Rally date Unpaid bill What government officials say El Paso, Texas Feb. 11, 2019 $470,417.05 “I’m hopeful they’ll pay. I’m hopeful they’ll do what’s right. People that don’t pay their bills - that’s a character integrity issue.” - El Paso Mayor Dee Margo Tucson, Ariz. May 19, 2016 $81,837.00 “In connection with these events, we will always provide the law enforcement and public safety support and response that is necessary to ensure the safety of the public. But [in the future] we intend to use revised agreements that identify certain costs that we expect the campaign to cover.” - Tucson Chief of Staff Lane Mandle Spokane, Wash. May 7, 2016 $65,124.69 “I would expect anyone who is billed for police services to pay their fair share.” - Spokane City Council President Ben Stuckart … Police officials are attempting to collect payment from the Trump campaign and “councilmembers have urged them to be proactive in collecting that bill.” - Spokane City Councilmember Breean Beggs … “Let’s be honest, when does Trump ever pay his bills?” - Spokane City Council member Kate Burke Mesa, Ariz. Oct. 19, 2018 $64,467.56 “It is our hope that the organization will do right by the taxpayers of Mesa and provide payment in a timely manner.” - Mesa Deputy City Manager Scott Butler Eau Claire, Wis. Apr. 2, 2016 $47,398.00 Billings, Mont. Sept. 6, 2018 $42,811.00 “The chief of police made an in-person request to Trump’s campaign manager for the Billings office for reimbursement. No payment received and no communication.” - Billings Police Chief Rich St. John Erie, Pa. Oct. 10, 2018 $35,129.27 “We believed that the level of security that was required was costly and that it was reasonable for us to be reimbursed given the fact that it was a campaign rally, and the president was also here conducting a high-end fundraiser.” - Renée M. Lamis, chief of staff for Erie Mayor Joe Schember Lebanon, Ohio Oct. 12, 2018 $16,191.00 “There’s a lot of benefit when a president comes here: economic benefits, more visibility for our community. It’s exciting and great for the community. But I would hope and believe the Trump campaign would pay its bills. It’s our taxpayer dollars.” - Lebanon Mayor Amy Brewer Green Bay, Wis. Aug. 5, 2016 $9,380.00 “We appreciate, and we feel honored, when the candidates come to Green Bay. We are also very appreciative when they honor their debts.” - Celestine Jeffreys, chief of staff for Mayor Jim Schmitt Burlington, Vt. Jan. 7, 2016 $8,464.27 “Mr. Trump’s failure to cooperate with local law enforcement officials and lack of communication with the public and ticketholders put undue strain on the City’s police, and unnecessarily hurt downtown businesses. Paying the invoice remains the right and honorable thing for Mr. Trump to do.” - Burlington Mayor Miro Weinberger, in June 2016 Total: $841,219.84 Source: Center for Public Integrity interviews with municipal officials, municipal records and statements

    Former President Trump can't really do anything. He can't do stuff like you and me. He couldn't plant a garden, fill a gas tank and drive somewhere, or go grocery shopping and make dinner. What Trump can do is talk edgy and that makes him interesting and scary. If he was a movie he would get an R rating. And it is a long movie that doesn't end.

    One of the most revealing things about Trump, to me, was the revelation that he hired an Obama look-alike actor so he could berate and then fire him. And there are photos to back this up. How *_PATHETIC_* do you have to be to A) think of this idea; B) Ask your fixer to set it up for you; C) Actually do it and D) Have pictures taken so you could "relive" it again and again, much like a serial killer will take personal items from their victims so they can fantasize about killing them over and over and over again.
