Re: The Presidency of Donald J. Trump: State of Emergency

I'm a couple days late to the Jane Mayer article, but this is quite a "how times have changed" anecdote:

Quote:
At the height of the Tea Party rebellion, Ailes reprimanded Hannity for violating the line between journalism and politics. Hannity had arranged to tape his evening Fox show at a Tea Party fund-raiser in Ohio. When Ailes learned of the plan, only hours before the event, he demanded that Hannity cancel his appearance. According to a former Fox executive, Ailes then blew up at Bill Shine, who had authorized Hannity’s trip. “Roger was livid, and ripped the **** out of Shine,” the former executive says, recalling that Ailes yelled, “No one at Fox is shilling for the Tea Party!” Afterward, Shine released a statement criticizing Hannity’s actions. And Murdoch, at a panel about the news, expressed a similar view, saying, “I don’t think we should be supporting the Tea Party or any other party.”
lol

Also note obnoxious Legere swore off Trump hotels in 2015 after trump bashed T-Mobile service.

Isn't Trump in a unique position though as a president that has this vast wealth and hotels? Can you blame him for them doing that? If I was lobbying Trump I would and make damn sure he knows about it.

Now what he has been accused of doing with countless other ways he has financially benefitted are corrupt.

If the Starbucks guy runs and wins at least all you have to do is show up with a cup of coffee

Anyone spending money on anything trump to get favors is doing it wrong. Just publicly praise him. Doesn't cost a penny.

This. iirc they had some kind of scoring system for how long you've been registered and how many posts you have before you can start a subreddit.

Re: The Presidency of Donald J. Trump: State of Emergency

Surprised Trump said 300 million instead of 60 million, but then again in the future the history books may read that he got 300 million votes.

He has violated the gag order multiple times on social media already, plus the judge is not happy about the book. I think there's a good chance he goes to jail soon.

Lawbros don’t seem to realize substantially everything they’ve been taught is meaningless when the guys in charge don’t care.

Yeah, I'll believe Roger Stone is going to jail when I see a headline that Roger Stone is in jail. At this point, deep down, I sort of expect him to get convicted, do a month or two, get pardoned and walk. I'm in a pretty dark place about anyone involved in any of this seeing any real consequences beyond like Manafort.

Imagine some guy on a low level marijuana dealing charge acting the same way. Would have been snap locked up. It’s ridiculous.
