DAILY KOS

This week, the socalled president, @realDonaldTrump, continued to win on behalf of America—anyone claiming otherwise is dishonoring the sacrifice of the victims of the Bowling Green massacre, and owes their families an apology.

Contrary to what FAKE NEWS outlets such as CNN would have you believe, PresidentTrump remains extremely popular—which is to say that he remains popular with his extremist base.

And they’re not aloneformer President Obama likes him, too (according to Trump).

Another lie that’s been gaining currency with the liberal media is that Trump doesn’t call his own shots, and merely does whatever Steve Bannon tells him to do; however, nothing could be further from the truth (no puppet, no puppet).

If you’re buying any of this bullshit, perhaps I can interest you in some of Ivanka’s stuff.

Elsewhere…

Pennsylvania state Sen. Daylin Leach used some colorful language to challenge President Trump.

In a Facebook post, state Sen. Daylin Leach, D-Montgomery, linked to a Politico story about Trump’s meeting with several county sheriffs, including Chester County Sheriff Carolyn Bunny Welsh. According to the website, Harold Eavenson, sheriff of Rockwall County, Texas, brought up the issue of civil asset forfeiture.

Eavenson brought up to Trump an unnamed senator who was discussing introducing legislation that would require a conviction before law enforcement could seize forfeiture money, joking that “the cartel would build a monument” to the senator in Mexico for passing said legislation.

“Who is the state senator? Do you want to give his name? We’ll destroy his career,” Trump replied, according to Politico.

Leach, who has pushed for civil asset forfeiture reform in Pennsylvania, invited Trump to come after him as well.

“Hey! I oppose civil asset forfeiture too,” Leach wrote on Facebook and Twitter. “Why don’t you come after me you fascist, loofa-faced s***-gibbon!!”

 

Meanwhile…

FLOTUS Melania Trump refiled her defamation suit against the Daily Mail for calling her a hooker, and causing her to miss out on the opportunity to cash in on her position.

An attorney for first lady Melania Trump argued in a lawsuit filed Monday that an article falsely alleging that she once worked for an escort service hurt her chance to establish “multimillion dollar business relationships” during the years in which she would be “one of the most photographed women in the world.”

The suit — filed Monday in New York Supreme Court, a state trial court, in Manhattan — against Mail Media, the owner of the Daily Mail, said the article published by the Daily Mail and its online division last August caused Trump’s brand, Melania, to lose “significant value”  as well as “major business opportunities that were otherwise available to her.” The suit said the article had damaged her “unique, once in a lifetime opportunity” to “launch a broad-based commercial brand.”

The suit filed Monday did not spell out a plan by Trump to market her products during her tenure as first lady, but mentioned that her reputation had suffered just as she was experiencing a “multi-year term” of elevated publicity. The suit says the Daily Mail article “impugned her fitness to perform her duties as First Lady of the United States.”

Buy the rumor, sell the news.
