Omarosa: Donald Trump Wants to F-ck His Daughter! (Not Tiffany, Of Course)

According to Omarosa Manigault Newman, Donald Trump legitimately wants to have sex with his daughter.

No, not Tiffany Trump of course. That would be crazy.

The ex-White House advisor and perpetual reality show villain is instead referring to Ivanka Trump, which... is not as crazy?

Ivanka

In Omarosa's new memoir of her time in the Trump administration, the disgraced former Apprentice contestant writes:

“As long as I’d known Trump, I’d observed the way he hugs, touches, and kisses Ivanka; the way she calls him Daddy.

"In my opinion, based on my observations, their relationship goes right up to the line of appropriate father/daughter behavior and jumps right over it.

"I believe he covets his daughter. It’s uncomfortable to watch them.”

Omarosa, of course, has quite a few crosses to bear with the Commander-in-Chief.

She has bashed him at every turn in her ongoing media blitz, alleging that Trump has dropped the N-Word at times; that he was aware leaked DNC emails were going public two years ago before they actually did; and that he's in mental decline.

Trump, in turn, has slammed Omarosa as a "dog" and a "lowlife."

Yes, this really is what our President is focusing on these days.

Donald Trump and Omarosa

However, Omarosa isn't the first person to point out that Trump talks about Ivanka is VERY unusual terms.

Back in 2006, during an appearance on The View, he said: "If Ivanka weren’t my daughter, perhaps, I would be dating her. Is that terrible?"

In 2013, when asked by Wendy Williams what he has in common with Ivanka, Trump replied: "Sex."

We're not trying to take a side in this Trump-Omarosa rivalry because both are awful human beings...

... but this is some very strange stuff to be saying about one's own child, is it now?

Omarosa, who was fired from her position as director of communications for the White House Office of Public Liaison in December, adds in her book that in Trump’s Apprentice days:

“It appeared to me that Ivanka had gotten so used to his touching her in ways that made others cringe and either didn’t notice it anymore or purposefully allowed it to happen."

Again, Omarosa is not the first person to comment on the interactions between The Donald and his favorite daughter.

But she is the first famous person to come right out and say the former wants to plow the latter.

Omarosa Manigault Newman

In response to Omarosa's book and the endless shade she keeps throwing at the President, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders has said the memoir “is riddled with lies and false accusations."

She has added that “it’s sad that a disgruntled former White House employee is trying to profit off these false attacks."

And also that it's "even worse that the media would now give her a platform, after not taking her seriously when she had only positive things to say about the President during her time in the administration."

Maybe that's because we don't need to trust Omarosa right now since she has tapes?

Maybe it's also because Sanders herself has said she can't guarantee that Trump has never said the N-Word?

Donald Trump in FL

We almost forgot, meanwhile:

In a 2003 interview with Howard Stern, Trump said his daughter has “the best body.”

In another interview, Trump gave the radio host the okay to call Ivanka a “piece of ass."

The funniest part of this accusation is that Trump can only address is head on by coming out and specifically denying that he wants to have sex with his own daughter.

Which would just be amazing if it actually happens.

Donald Trump Rages Against Omarosa, Labels Ex-Apprentice Star a "Lowlife Dog"

This is the state of our country right now:

A former reality show host, who fired a certain reality show contestant multiple times, is now fighting in public with that same reality show contestant after he also fired her from working in the White House.

The ex-host, of course, is the President of the United States.

The ex-contestant is Omarosa Manigault Newman.

Donald Trump and Omarosa

Omarosa was let go from her actual role as a senior advisor to the Commander-in-Chief several weeks ago, and now she's on a massive media tour in order to promote her upcoming book.

On Sunday, Omarosa appeared on Meet the Press, alleging that she was threatened upon being handed her walking papers and even playing a recording she made of Chief of Staff John Kelly.

The recording was done in secret, while Kelly explained to Omerosa his decision inside of The Situation Room, and you can listen to the wild breach of national security here:

Then, on Monday, Omarosa sat across from Savannah Guthrie and said Trump has used the N-Word at some point in the past...

... and there's a tape out there of him doing so.

She also snapped a bit at Guthrie's quick-fire line of questioning, as you can see below:

So, this all brings us to the latest in the Feud with No Winner That Absolutely Everyone Just Wishes Would Go Away Forever.

On Tuesday, Omarosa's book, Unhinged: An Insider’s Account of the Trump White House, went on sale.

In one excerpt from the memoir, the former reality series villain says that President Trump is in "mental decline" and that he would “forget from one day to the next."

"He was distracted, irritable, and short,” Newman writes about a briefing she had with the president.

“I was going over his speech, but he couldn’t retain any of the bullet points. I went over them again and again, and what he should say to the press after the event."

In response to Omarosa's press blitz and book, Trump settled in at work and focused on providing Flint, Michigan with clean water; Puerto Rico with electricity; and immigrants with a path to citizenship.

Just kidding.

He went on a Twitter rant instead.

"When you give a crazed, crying lowlife a break, and give her a job at the White House, I guess it just didn’t work out," Trump Tweeted this morning, adding:

"Good work by General Kelly for quickly firing that dog!"

dog tweet

Trump previously admitted that he only hired Omarosa because she said "GREAT things" about him in the past.

Additionally, he Manigault Newman’s allegation in Unhinged that he was recorded repeatedly using recial epithets in outtake footage from The Apprentice.

".@MarkBurnettTV called to say that there are NO TAPES of the Apprentice where I used such a terrible and disgusting word as attributed by Wacky and Deranged Omarosa,” Trump wrote late Monday, adding:

“I don’t have that word in my vocabulary, and never have. She made it up.

"Look at her MANY recent quotes saying such wonderful and powerful things about me – a true Champion of Civil Rights – until she got fired.

"Omarosa had Zero credibility with the Media (they didn’t want interviews) when she worked in the White House. Now that she says bad about me, they will talk to her.

"Fake News!"

down with burnett

This is all totally normal, folks.

This is absolutely how the President ought to be talking and what he should be focused on. No one panic, okay?!?

"Donald Trump is a con man and has been masquerading as someone who is actually open to engaging with diverse communities," Omarosa said on NBC over the weekend.

As mentioned above, this is a feud that has no winner and one very obvious lose: Every single American citizen.

Donald Trump Tries to Dunk on LeBron James, Calls Him Stupid

Donald Trump is too short, too out of shape and possesses hands that are way to small to dunk a basketball.

But the President of the United States nevertheless took some time out of his late Friday night to try and slam one home on...

... LeBron James?

Donald Trump at Lectern

Yes.

The very stable genius, who thinks one needs an ID to purchase groceries, jumped on Twitter around midnight and Tweeted the following about the new Los Angeles Lakers star:

Lebron James was just interviewed by the dumbest man on television, Don Lemon. He made Lebron look smart, which isn’t easy to do.

I like Mike!

There are many things to point out about this Tweet.

For starters, Lemon interviewed LeBron on Monday night, meaning there are only one of two options here:

  1. Trump used TiVo to record the interview and watched it days later.
  2. Trump was simply watching CNN, the network he often claims "sucks" and is terrible and is full of "fake news," when it re-aired the Q&A.

Either would be a totally normal thing for the Commander-in-Chief to do, right?

donald tweet

Secondly, LeBron James was interviewed by Lemon (along with other outlets) because he just opened a public school in Akron, Ohio.

To reiterate: James donated millions and millions of dollars to the I Promise school, an institution for at-risk children in his hometown that will offer:

- Free college tuition to the University of Arkon for all graduates.

- All students a free uniform, free bicycle and free helmet.

- Job assistance and GED training for the parents of all students.

- A food pantry for families.

- Free breakfast, lunch and snacks for all students.

One could easily argue this is the most generous and impressive off-court gesture ever made by a professiona athlete.

And THIS is the individual that President Trump has chosen to insult as unintelligent.

LeBron Opens a School

We wonder why.

Yes, James has referred to Trump as a "bum" on Twitter in the past and he also said in June that whichever team won the NBA title would turn down an invitation to visit the White House.

But head NBA coaches Steve Kerr and Greg Popovich has been far more critical of Trump.

The latter said in March that Trump is a liar and a hypocrite and that he brings out the "dark side of human beings for his own purpose."

Yet Trump has never uttered a negative word about Kerr or Popovich. We really do wonder why.

What makes LeBron different from these two other men in his profession. Can anyone out there help explain it to us?

Donald Trump in FL

In his CNN interview, James discussed the impact of sports and how it brings people together, contrasting this experience with the way Trump uses "sports to kinda divide us."

A great example of this would be Trump's constant bashing of NFL players for being unpatrotic because they are protesting violence against African-Americans by taking a knee during the national anthem.

"Sports has never been something that divides people," James told Lemon. "It's always been something that brings someone together."

A few months ago, LeBron expounded further on Trump's self-centered and misguided attitude toward... everything and everyone.

"He doesn't understand the power that he has for being the leader of this beautiful country," James said. "He doesn't understand how many kids, no matter the race, look up to the president of the United States for guidance, for leadership, for words of encouragement.

"He doesn't understand that, and that's what makes me more sick than anything, that we have someone that's ... this is the most, this is the No. 1 position in the world."

LeBron

In his viral Tweet above, Trump said he likes Mike, very likely making a reference to Michael Jordan in the debate for who is the best basketball player of all-time.

The world now waits to see if Jordan will chime in with his opinion of the President.

It also now waits to see if Trump will get impeached for being a traitor.

Donald Trump Thinks You Need ID to Buy Groceries

Donald Trump has said a fair number of ridiculous and unfathomable things as a candidate for President and then as the actual President.

He has said most Mexicans are rapists... and that there are some "good" white supremacists... and that he never colluded with Russia to steal the 2016 election.

But the Commander-in-Chief has never sounded more out of touch with the average human being than he did during a speech in Tampa, Florida on July 31.

Speaking to a gathering of raucous supporters in The Sunshine State, Trump was pushing for his racist idea of voter ID laws for future elections.

He was doing this, of course, to suppress the voice of those who might dare to want someone else in the Oval Ofice in 2020.

And to drive his point home of why these new, stricter laws ought to be enacted, the President said it was ridiculous NOT to require certain forms of identification when one goes to vote...

... because, heck, you need to prove you identity simply to buy some cereal at the supermarket.

“You know if you go out and you want to buy groceries, you need a picture on a card,” Trump said. “You need ID.”

The thing is, you don't. Like, at all.

In no way, shape or form does one need to show proof of identification when shopping for food.

As you might expect, social media users jumped all over this gaffe, pointing to the obvious fact that Donald Trump has likely not set food inside of a supermarket in decades.

In and of itself, this isn't a big deal.

Plenty of rich people do not do their own shopping.

Still, most of these people are likely aware that one doesn't need an ID to simply buy some fruit... right?

There are a few slightly bigger deals surrounding Trump these days than the misguided notion he espouses in the video featured here, like how he pays off mistresses and is at the mercy of Vladimir Putin.

But it's interesting to note how times have changed.

Just look at the article and headline below:

Way back in the day, it was FRONT PAGE news in the New York Times when George H.W. Bush came across like a fool when touring a supermarket.

He had no idea how the entire checkout process worked.

And this was so shocking and so troubling to voters that the aforementioned newspaper thought it deserved above-the-fold coverage.

Yup, in the late 1980s, THIS is what qualified as a major scandal.

How we long for that era...

Kim Kardashian: I Was Naked When I Talked to Trump!

Kim Kardashian has been a divisive figure throughout her career, but she recently earned some much-deserved, near-universal praise for using her fame and influence for good.

Though generally left-leaning in her politics, Kim reached across the aisle back in June and contacted Donald Trump.

Her goal was to secure the release of Alice Johnson, a grandmother who had already served 22 years of a life sentence she received as a result of a non-violent, first offense drug conviction.

Whether or not you're a fan of either Kim or the president, most folks seem to agree that the decision to release Johnson after more than two decades behind bars was an unqualified good.

Appearing on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night, Kim spoke of her dealings with the Donald and revealed that she was au naturel at the time she received her first phone call from Trump.

"Did the president know that you were in just like a robe and nothing else because he probably would have released the whole prison if you'd told him that," Kimmel quipped.

Ah, yes, Trump is a pervert.

That joke never gets old ... unless you're one of his victims.

Kimmel didn't go easy on Kim, but to her credit, she refused to allow herself to be backed into a corner.

Asked about Kanye West's love of Trump, the mother of three refused to defend her husband's controversial polticial views, and even threw what could be interpreted as mild shade:

"He's not political so he doesn't really dig deep into what's going on," she said of Kanye.

"He likes kind of just his personality and how he made it to be president when everyone really underestimated him."

Yes, as many predicted, West's love of Trump has nothing to do with politics and everything to do with the fact that he sees in the president a fellow egotisitical blowhard.

As for her own views on 45 ... well, Kim was a bit more cagey in that regard.

"I have nothing bad to say about the president," she told Kimmel, leading the host to reply:

"Right, because you've still got people on the list."

"I'm very focused," Kardashian replied.

Hey, if Kim wants to keep her views on Trump to herself for a good cause, we're all for it.

Stay focused, girl.

Rudy Giuliani Tweets the Word "You," Gets Roasted By All of Twitter

Rudy Giuliani has a lot on his mind these days.

After all, he's working for a guy whose employees keep getting fired and/or sent to jail.

Rudy Giuliani is Dismissive

At this point, America's Mayor is probably feeling like he has about the same job security as a defense against the dark arts teacher.

Paul Manafort is in jail; Michael Cohen has officially jumped ship; and at this very moment, Don Jr. is probably considering starting over in Moscow and dropping Kimberly Guilfoyle from some young Ruskie state propaganda mouthpiece.

That leaves old Rudy to swoop in and save the day, not unlike that time he came off the bench and sacked the QB in his final game at Notre Dame.

We should probably fact-check that one, but who has the time?

Anyway, it looks like the pressure is starting to get to Rude Boy, who got mercilessly dragged over the weekend after experiencing his own "covfefe" moment on Twitter.

Giuliani Tweet

As you can see, Rudy tweeted simply the word "you."

Now, as far as we can tell this isn't some sort of profound statement about the importance of the ego in 21st century America.

In all likelihood, Rudy simply hit "send" when he didn't mean to.

We like to think he was about to launch into a Seinfeld-ian "you ever notice?"-type rant about the plastic things on the end of shoelaces. 

But that might just be an association we're making based on the fact that, like the show, Giuliani should have stayed in 1990s New York.

This being 2018, of course, Rudy was roasted within an inch of his life for his Twitter ineptitude.

Rudy Responses

Now, many of Ru-Giu's defenders have pointed out that this is the sort of mistake that could happen to anyone.

And they're absolutely right.

It's easy to mess up on social media.

People tweet out the wrong thing all the time ... just ask Anthony Weiner.

Which is a very good argument for politicians staying off of social media, or at least being much more careful about the content that they post.

Sure, it's not like Rudy threatened the president of Iran or anything, but it's only a matter of time before someone in the Trump administration sparks an international incident, and it's gonna be so embarrassing when future generations find out World War III started over an emoji.

Michael Cohen Says Donald Trump Lied About Mysterious Russia Meeting

KA-BOOM!

Michael Cohen has just dropped a bombshell on America.

Might it serve as the first step toward the impeachment of President Donald Trump?

President Trump

On Thursday night, CNN reported that the President's personal lawyer of over two decades is willing to testify to special investigator Robert Mueller that Mr. Trump knew in advance about a meeting in Trump Tower that took place two years ago.

In this June 2016 sit-down - which Donald Trump Jr. and other advisors close to then-candidate Trump have admitted to attending - Russians were expected to offer the campaign dirt on Hillary Clinton.

Emails dug up by The New York Times about a year ago proved that Trump Jr. was made aware ahead of this meeting that the Russians wanted to discuss ways to bring down Clinton.

He responded with enthusiasm to that possibility.

mcc

After the meeting was exposed, Trump Jr. and other administration officials went on record with multiple claims that Cohen is now willing to dispute:

1. That the meeting was fruitless and no information about Clinton was brought up.

2. Far more damaging, that President Trump had no idea the meeting took place.

Cohen alleges he was present, along with several other inidividuals, when the elder Trump was informed of the Russians' offer by Trump Jr.

By Cohen's account, per CNN, Trump gave the green light to this gathering between his campaign staff and representatives from a foreign adversary.

To be clear, Cohen does NOT have any recordings that can back up his claim.

He is simply willing to testify under oath that he witnessed Trump give his son the go-ahead for the Russian pow wow.

This is pertinent because the attorney did tape Trump on numerous occasions back when he met frequently with his famous client; one recently-released tape features Trump and Cohen discussing payment to keep quiet a story about his affair with Karen McDougal.

What is discussed in the video below may violate campaign finance law. Take a listen:

Trump himself has repeatedly pleaded ignorance about this infamous meeting between his advisors and shady folks from Russia.

He has one said on more than one thousand occasions that there has been NO COLLUSION between his administration and the Vladimir Putin-led regime.

Contacted by CNN, one of Cohen's lawyers, Lanny Davis, declined to comment.

As always, however, Rudy Giuliani was very happy to speak out and to make things a million times worse for his client, President Trump.

"He's been lying all week, he's been lying for years," Rudy Giuliani said to Chris Cuomo on CNN's "Cuomo Prime Time" on Thursday night.

This is really the only approach Giuliani and his team can take, we suppose, but it's an ironic one.

Donald Trump: An Image

They are saying that the President's personal attorney and close confidante is a liar.

One can't help but logically wonder, therefore, just what is was lying about and for whom he was doing said lying.

"I don't see how he's got any credibility," Giuliani added in response to Cohen's allegation about this Russian meeting.

Several months ago, Cohen's office was (legally) raised by investigator in New York who had obtained a search warrant.

He's under scrutiny by federal prosecutors in Manhattan due to all the dealings he has been responsible for as the lawyer for Trump.

Donald Trump as The President

The June 2016 meeting at the center of this scandal was arranged after a publicist who knew Trump Jr. told him that a senior Russian official "offered to provide the Trump campaign" with damaging information about Clinton.

This email also said this information was "part of Russia and its government's support for Mr. Trump."

Trump. Jr. responded as follows, in a message made public about a year ago: "if it's what you say, I love it."

At the meeting, Trump Jr. was joined by his brother-in-law Jared Kushner and Paul Manafort, who was Trump's campaign chairman at the time.

The President said on July 12, 2017, that he "only heard about it two or three days ago."

A week later, Trump repeated that he "didn't know anything about the meeting" because "nobody told me" about it.

Now, however, Cohen is saying the opposite, that Trump played a key role in approving this meeting and in pushing his staff to collude with the Russians.

Strap in, folks. The ride may just get even bumpier from here on out.

Donald Trump Plots to Pay Off Playboy Model Mistress In Newly-Released Tapes!

As we reported days ago, Donald Trump was caught on tape discussing payouts related to former Playboy model Karen McDougal, with whom he allegedly had an affair.

Now, CNN has obtained one of the dozen tapes that were seized by prosecutors from the office of former Trump attorney Michael Cohen.

It might not be a "smoking gun" for collusion, but ... many believe that it may be evidence that campaign finance laws were violated.

In September of 2016, just months before that fateful election night, Trump met with Michael Cohen, who recorded their conversation.

"The recording offers the public a glimpse at the confidential discussions between Trump and Cohen," CNN says.

CNN continues, saying that based upon their analysis, "it confirms the man who now occupies the Oval Office had contemporaneous knowledge of a proposal to buy the rights to the story of Karen McDougal."

CNN goes on to describe how McDougal is "a woman who has alleged she had an extramarital affair with Trump about a decade ago."

The reason for which this is a big deal is that Trump paying to silence someone, directly or indirectly, may be an election law violation.

Trump can be heard saying: "I need to open up a company for the transfer of all of that info regarding our friend David."

David Pecker is the head of American Media, which controls the National Enquirer, the entity that purchased and then buried Karen McDougal's story.

Now, not all of the discussion is relevant to payouts to Karen McDougal. But when financing comes up again later, Trump refers to it.

Cohen can be heard saying: "When it comes time for the financing, which will be ..."

"What financing?" Trump asks, interrupting Cohen.

"We'll have to pay," Cohen is heard explaining.

Here is where the low quality of the recording makes things tricky.

It sounds like Trump is saying "pay with cash," but some have argued that he is saying "don't pay with cash."

Cohen argues, saying "no, no," but it is difficult to tell exactly what is said next.

Based upon everyone's analysis, it sounds like Trump is either saying "Pay with cash" or "Don't pay with cash."

It looks like there is going to be some debate over what exactly he said.

It was Cohen's attorney Lanny Davis who provided the recording to CNN.

Cohen was Trump's attorney for a long time and previously stated that he would take a bullet for Trump.

However, in recent weeks, he has stated that he would like to put his country first and cooperate with prosecutors.

This has left Trump deeply unsettled, resulting in some of his infamous Twitter ravings.

"Inconceivable that the government would break into a lawyer’s office (early in the morning)," Trump wrote on Twitter on July 21.

"Almost unheard of," Trump claims. "Even more inconceivable that a lawyer would tape a client - totally unheard of & perhaps illegal."

"The good news," Trump continues. "Is that your favorite President did nothing wrong!" 

Let's say that further analysis of this tape proves, conclusively, that Donald Trump broke our election laws by making payouts to keep McDougal silent.

What now?

Obviously, Melania is once again embarrassed, but after her "I don't really care, do u?" stunt, few in the public really care about her feelings any more than her husband does.

Ultimately, it is the job of Congress to impeach and then convict a sitting President. It is believed that no one else can do that.

Unfortunately, many within the GOP -- though personally unhappy with Trump -- are unwilling to take the necessary steps towards impeachment for two reasons.

One, because they are happy to have him appoint idealogues to the Supreme Court and other positions. In other words, their interests align with his.

Two, because they fear that moving against him will cost them reelection.

After everything that he's already done, from praising Nazis as "good people" to the Helsinki summit, it is difficult to imagine what, if anything, would prompt Republicans in the legislature to take action.

But ... all of this evidence could all be valuable ammunition if the fabled "Blue Wave" for which so many Americans hope actually happens this November.

Donald trump tapes listen to trump discuss secret payouts

Donald Trump: CAUGHT on Tape Discussing Secret Payouts to Playboy Model

If you need to do a whole bunch of shady, sleazebag stuff, you need a shady, sleazebag attorney to handle it. The only problem is that, well, your lawyer is a shady sleazebag.

On Friday, the world learned that Michael Cohen had apparently recorded Donald Trump discussing payouts to cover up his alleged affair with a former Playboy model.

Those recordings may be evidence that Trump violated campaign finance laws in the 2016 election.

Being a woman who goes public with her story of having had sex with Donald Trump can get you stalked, harassed, and threatened.

Recently, it even got Stormy Daniels arrested in a transparent sting operation that many believed was designed as part of a harassment campaign against her.

In this case, we're talking about former Playboy model Karen McDougal.

It has now come to light that, just months before the 2016 election, Trump spoke to his attorney, Michael D Cohen, about payments made to McDougal to ensure her silence.

According to The New York Times, Cohen recorded his conversation with Trump ... and the F.B.I. now has those tapes.

Karen McDougal Photo

According to lawyers and others familiar with the tapes, the F.B.I. acquired these recordings earlier in the year.

Remember their big raid on Michael Cohen's office? That's when they got their hands on them.

The Justice Department is invesigating Cohen over payments to women in order to bury embarrassing stories about Trump during his Presidential campaign.

If so, it is believed that this was a violation of campaign finance law.

The Trump campaign has insisted that it had no knowledge of any such payments. Considering the amounts of money exchanged, some find this hard to believe.

Donald Trump as The President

Karen McDougal says that her affair with Donald Trump spanned for nearly a year, beginning in 2006.

It apparently began a short time after Trump's current (and then, new) wife, Melania Trump, gave birth to his youngest child, Barron.

During the final months of the 2016 Presidential campaign, McDougal sold her story for $150,000.

Unfortunately, she sold it to The National Enquirer, a tabloid whose owner is friendly towards Trump.

After purchasing her story, the tabloid declined to publish it. This is known as the "catch and kill" method for handling scandals.

Karen McDougal Talks Trump

Rudy Giuliani took a break from claiming that porn stars are worthless as human beings to confirm to The New York Times that the recordings do include Trump and Cohen discussing these payments.

He says that the recordings are about two minutes long.

Giuliani claims that Trump did not know that he was being recorded ... which is what most people had figured, anyway.

However, Giuliani also claims that Trump did nothing wrong. He says that Trump was discussing a totally separate deal to buy McDougal's story.

Giuliani says that Trump considered buying McDougal's story from the Enquirer, which would have effectively reimbursed the tabloid for buying McDougal's unwitting silence, but that the payment was never made.

Michael Cohen

Cohen is being intensely scrutinized under suspicion of a lot of things for his work on behalf of Donald Trump.

Though he was a firm loyalist for Trump (and Sean Hannity, his other client), Cohen has recently been changing his tune, and said that he will put his family and country first.

Some are skeptical, however, and think that if Cohen is really willing to put his country first, he should tell the Justice Department everything that he knows about Trump's illegal dealings immediately.

Others are unsure of his credibility, but are inclined to listen to evidence such an an audio recording.

Some suggest that this revelation about Trump discussing payouts to McDougal might lead to his downfall. It might seem unimportant compared to Trump kissing Putin's ass in what many consider to be an act of treason.

But breaking election laws is still serious. It matters.

Whoopi Goldberg Boots Jeanine Pirro from The View: Watch!

As Donald Trump continues kissing Vladimir Putin's ass before the international community, some of his erstwhile defenders have gone silent.

Some of his most ardent defenders, however, are speaking louder than ever. Fox News host Jeanine Pirro is certainly no exception.

In an appearance on The View, she accused Whoopi Goldberg of having "Trump Derangement Syndrome" and got booted from the table.

Whoopi goldberg speaks to jeanine pirro

Jeanine Pirro has seemingly staked her entire career on Donald Trump being, not only not a traitor and Russian asset, but a good President.

Despite what many consider to be overwhelming evidence to the contrary, she argues before The View hosts that the investigation into Russian espionage and cyber crimes during the 2016 election season was made in bad faith.

Pirro, who ran against Hillary Clinton for Senate seat before dropping out to accept a nomination for New York Attorney General (a race which she lost), wrote a book, alleging a massive conspiracy against Trump.

Among other things, she seems to suggest that the Deep State, which the United States does not have, not only exists, but is working to undermine the President.

Things became heated when Pirro suggested that any crimes committed by undocumented immigrants justified the Trump Administration's human rights violations against immigrants -- including lawful asylum seekers.

Jeanine pirro speaks on the view

A contentious debate became more heated when Pirro accused Whoopi of having "Trump Derangement Syndrome."

"I'm tired," Whoopi explains. "Of people starting conversations with 'Mexicans are liars and rapists.'"

We've seen so many interviews in which pleasant-faced people look into the camera and repeat those same racist, xenophobic lies.

"I'm tired of starting a conversation about this country -- listen, I'm 62 years old," Whoopi says, changing gears.

"There have been a lot of people in office that I didn't agree with," Whoopi says. "But I have never, ever seen anything like this."

The view featuring ana navarro jeanine pirro

Many people, including those who have lived much longer than Whoopi, struggle to recall a President whose behavior mirrored Donald Trump's.

"I've never seen anybody whip up such hate. I've never seen anybody be so dismissive," Whoopi says.

Taking issue with the Trump Derangement Syndrome remark, Whoopi says: "And clearly you don't watch this show. You don't know that I suffer from that."

Whoopi explains that "what I suffer from is the inability to figure out how to fix this. That's my issue."

The unpleasantness continues, and Whoopi says: "Say goodbye, goodbye. I'm done"

Whoopi goldberg lays down the law to jeanine pirro

After the break, Pirro is nowhere in sight.

Whoopi Goldberg then addresses the audience, to explain why she was so passionate.

"So you saw me do something that I very rarely do, I very rarely lose my cool and I'm not proud of it," Whoopi says. "I don't like it."

No one likes losing their cool. But it is very understandable that such an important issue makes people feel passionate.

"But I also don't like being accused of being hysterical because that's one of the things I try not to be on this show."

It is worth noting that Jeanine Pirro was seated beside longtime Republican Ana Navarro, who has become one of Donald Trump's fiercest critics.

There's a very special phenomenon when people say and do horrible things and then act as if those who are upset about them are being unreasonable.

When they do this, they portray themselves as the reasonable ones because they remained calm, suggesting that the other is unbalanced.

It is important for us to remember as we hear these arguments that it is normal -- and even healthy -- to become impassioned when speaking about human rights abuses, bigotry, and treason.

That's not "Trump Derangement Syndrome." There's no such thing.

Besides, Jeanine Pirro grew hot under the collar herself.

Hillary Clinton to Donald Trump: Keep Kissing Putin’s Ass, Traitor!

If you were anywhere near social media yesterday, you may have noticed that the entire internet briefly set aside cat videos and celebrity butts in order to briefly focus on something slightly more important -- namely, a US president just casually committing treason on live TV.

Yes, in case you somehow haven't heard, the passionate bromance of Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin continued yesterday, and it was different from all those other times an American president sang the praises of a hostile foreign dictator who was standing right next to him, in that it actually happened in real life and wasn't part of some terrifying Orwellian nightmare.

HRC vs. DJT

Obviously, the hot takes were everywhere on social media yesterday, with just about everyone roasting poor Donnie to a crisp for essentially getting dominated by a powerful Russian on TV in what can only be described as a reverse-Rocky IV.

Even prominent members of the GOP spoke out against Trump's embarrassing display of supplication.

Of course, if you're wondering if any of them will do anything about it by, say, running against Trump in the 2020 primaries, the answer remains "hell no," because ultimately, ceding control of our country to a corrupt superpower is a small price to pay in exchange for corporate tax cuts.

No, the task of usurping Donnie Despot will once again fall to the Dems, who will again be forced to rely upon a much smaller arsenal of weapons than their opponents.

While the Trump campaign will continue to enjoy the support of state TV and an army of Russian bots, whoever runs against the president will be forced to rely on old-fashioned tools such as "words" and "the truth."

Donald Trump as Our POTUS

Obviously, those instruments didn't prove very reliable for Hillary Clinton in 2016, but that hasn't stopped the rightful president from continuing to take shots at the Ruskie-installed puppet that currently occupies the White House:

"Great World Cup. Question for President Trump as he meets Putin: Do you know which team you play for?" Clinton tweeted when the soccer tournament wrapped up on Sunday.

She followed that up yesterday with a succinct yet potent burn:

"Well, now we know," Clinton tweeted.

And if you think Clinton is exaggerating, you should really go back and watch that press conference again.

Hillary Clinton Concedes

Trump basically had cartoon hearts orbiting that fleshy tube he calls a head the entire time.

Of course, what's really troublesome about the Helsinki summit is not what was said on camera, but what may have transpired behind closed doors.

But if you're finding that thought too horrible to contemplate today, you may want to focus instead on the moment when Trump threw a soccer ball at his wife.

You know it was a weird-ass press conference when that instant of hilariously unathletic awkwardness doesn't even crack the top five on the list of weirdest sh-t that happened.

Now if you'll excuse us, we're gonna try and find out if we'll need to buy new computers once the takeover is complete, or if there's some sort of keyboard command for all those backward Ks and Rs in the Russian alphabet.

George Lopez Pees On Trump’s Walk of Fame Star, Royally Pisses Off MAGA Crowd

Ever since Donald Trump was elected president, his star on the Walk of Fame has been a common target for some very amusing vandalism.

Now, "amusing" is not a word one would normally use to describe George Lopez, a man who typically favors the Adam Sandler "I'm rich, therefore I don't have to be funny" approach to comedy, but we're willing to make an exception in this case.

Lopez recently pretended to take a leak on the Donald's star, and TMZ obtained video of the righteous micturition.

Not exactly comic gold on its own, but the response to Lopez's innocuous gag has been flat-out hilarious.

According to TMZ, dozens of grown-ass adults have called and texted the LAPD demanding that Lopez be arrested for the prank.

The department says more than 50 individuals have contacted them to report Lopez's "crime," thus far, and the complaints just keep pouring in.

Hilariously, many of the offended parties seem not to realize that Lopez didn't actually pee on the star, a fact that's abundantly clear to anyone who's watched the video of the incident.

One caller described Lopez's actions as "sick, deplorable, offensive and disrespectful."

George Lopez-Donald Trump

Another fell for the prank harder than Sarah Palin being duped by Sacha Baron Cohen:

"If this was any normal person they would be arrested for indecent exposure," claims the outraged citizen, who apparently believes that penises and water bottles are interchangeable as far as the law is concerned.

"[Does] the Hollywood elite think they're above the law and you guys took an oath to obtain the Law."

It's moments like this where you almost have to marvel at Trump's mind control powers.

Dude's a born-rich, Ivy League-educated billionaire who's managed to convince tens of millions of Americans that he's on their side in the war against "the elites" -- a group that apparently includes George Lopez.

George Lopez Laughs

To be fair, we imagine this is quite the triggering event for some folks in the MAGA crowd.

A wealthy Mexican-American literally peeing on Donald Trump's name is a waking nightmare for most of these people.

Which is exactly why we encourage every brown-skinned person in the Greater Los Angeles area to head to Hollywood Boulevard and empty their bladders in the name of freedom.

Don't worry if you're not actually Mexican or rich.

The people who are most likely to be pissed off by your patriotic piddle will assume you just backstroked across the Rio Grande and fell into some cushy seven-figure gig that was meant for them.

You'll have 'em scrambling for their safe spaces in no time!

Stormy Daniels Arrested For Motorboating Cop at Ohio Strip Club

Before she became a household name as a result of her alleged affair with Donald Trump, Stormy Daniels made her living as an adult film star and producer.

So it should come as no surprise that she's cashing in on her newfound fame by performing at our nation's finest gentlemen's clubs as part of her flawlessly-titled Make America Horny Again tour.

Stormy Daniels Mug Shot

Unfortunately for Stormy, it seems certain authorities are having trouble separating the politics from the pole.

Daniels was arrested at an Ohio strip club Wednesday night for “allegedly allowing a customer to touch her while on stage in a non-sexual manner.”

She was taken into custody following an apparent sting operation.

Police claim that Daniels “knowingly” touched Columbus Police Officer Mary Prather's buttocks while topless, thus violating state law.

Sources say Stormy then put her breasts in Officer Prather's face -- an act known industry-wide as "motorboating."

Not surprisingly, many -- including Daniels' high-profile attorney, Michael Avenatti -- believe the arrest was politically motivated.

Michael Avenatti

"Just rcvd word that my client @StormyDaniels was arrested in Columbus Ohio whole performing the same act she has performed across the nation at nearly a hundred strip clubs," Avenatti tweeted Wednesday night.

"This was a setup & politically motivated. It reeks of desperation. We will fight all bogus charges. #Basta," he added.

"We expect her to be released on bail shortly. We also expect that she will be charged with a misdemeanor for allowing 'touching.' We will vehemently contest all charges."

Later becoming irate over the situation, Avenatti tweeted:

“Are you kidding me? They are devoting law enforcement resources to sting operations for this? There has to be higher priorities!” 

Daniels, who's known for her outspoken social media persona, has been uncharacteristically quiet on the subject of her arrest, likely on the advice of her legal counsel.

Stormy Daniels Smirks

Daniels claims to have had sex with Trump in 2006.

She's suing the president and his former attorney, Michael Cohen, over a non-disclosure agreement she claims to have signed after the tryst.

Trump has denied ever having any sexual relationship with Daniels.

The strip club where Daniels was arrested has declined to comment on the situation.

According to court documents, Daniels posted bail and is scheduled to be arraigned on Friday.

We'll have further updates on this developing story as more information becomes available.

Donald Trump Interrupts The Bachelorette, Gets Blasted by Furious Fans

Just because you follow The Bachelorette Spoilers and know how things end doesn't mean that you don't want to enjoy the episode in peace.

But, this week, The Bachelorette was interrupted by the exact opposite of peace -- it was an announcement of Donald Trump's Supreme Court pick.

And the Bachelor Nation was pissed.

Chris Harrison warned viewers in advance that Trump would be preempting the broadcast.

But the Bachelor Nation has been waiting for ages to watch Colton Underwood tell Becca Kufrin that he's a virgin.

Most people get their breaking news from Twitter and their in-depth coverage from online articles these days, so it was understandably difficult for many people to understand why they needed to waste 20 minutes of their lives.

And, as you may have heard, Trump isn't exactly hitting any record highs for Presidential popularity.

So the Bachelor Nation took to Instagram to vent their fury and frustration. Take a look:

1. Fans were pissed

Bachelorette interrupted tweet 01 end of repro rights
This tweet shows that you can care about politics but still be furious that you're missing your show. People can do both.

2. Is this evidence of Trump hypocrisy?

Bachelorette interrupted tweet 02 caring about women
Honestly, "caring about women" is not really part of his brand.

3. This has happened before

Bachelorette interrupted tweet 03 second time
Remember when Trump interrupted Bachelor in Paradise? What does he have against the pursuit of love?

4. The language became colorful

Bachelorette interrupted tweet 04 audacity
It takes a lot of audacity to interrupt primetime television and take twenty entire minutes to read one name.

5. Trump was not what the Bachelor Nation wanted to see

Bachelorette interrupted tweet 05 blakes date not orange face
Seriously. And now everyone wants to know how Blake's mom feels about what he decided to share with the world.

6. This is what you'd call a swing voter

Bachelorette interrupted tweet 06 becca gif
That's probably an easy promise to make. Unless you have some sort of pathology that makes you crave the spotlight so much that you schedule a briefing for primetime.

Stephen Miller Owns the Libs By Throwing Out His Own Damn Dinner

In case you've somehow been blissfully unaware of his existence, allow us to fill you in on the newly-hatched-larva-turned-Trump-policy-advisor whos's adopted the human name of Stephen Miller.

Miller is, to put it bluntly, the absolute worst.

As if you couldn't tell from those soulless pits of despair he calls eyes, Miller is the kind of guy whose lonely and humiliating teen years drove him to a life of supervillainy, but whose lack of intellect prevented him from going full-Thanos.

The MAGA crowd is torn on Miller.

On the plus side, he's fully committed to the cause of evil.

(It's Miller who's said to be most responsible for the Trump administration's decision to separate immigrant children from their families. One source claimed the 32-year-old "enjoys" seeing photos of kids in cages.)

But on the other hand, Miller's rodent-like appearance and Woody Allen-like mannerisms are basically what the average irate Trump supporter sees when he closes his eyes and envisions a "cuck" -- something he presumably does several dozen times a day.

So perhaps we can all momentarily set aside our political differences (Ed. note: LOLOLOLOL) and share in a laugh over Lil Stevey's recent unagi-related misfortune.

You see, Miller is the latest victim of the objectively awesome trend of regular citizens giving Trump staffers hell in public places.

Sarah Huckabee Sanders was kicked out of a restaurant; Scott Pruitt caught heat from a sh-t-talking mom and then freakin' resigned; Kellyanne Conway can't walk down the street without passersby shouting Bible verses in hopes that she'll explode she'll melt in comical fashion. like Nazis of yore.

As for Stephen Miller, well ... he threw out $80 worth of sushi and then bragged about it for some reason.

Yes, according to a new feature in The Washington Post that details the various ways in which being a Trump staffer will justly ruin your life, Miller recently picked up a to-go order from a sushi restaurant near his apartment in D.C.

As he was leaving the establishment, Miller heard someone shout his name.

He turned to see a bartender from the restaurant hitting him with a pair of one-digit salutes.

Being a member of the most ultra-masculine, supremely-alpha administration in history, Miller naturally pulled a U-turn and swiftly kicked the guy's ass.

Just kidding, he scurried back to his apartment and tossed the sushi in the trash.

For some reason, Stephen told his co-workers about the incident the next day, presumably thinking he would receive a round of high-fives and maybe even a seductive look from a comely intern.

Instead, Miller has once again assumed the role of national laughingstock, and he has no one to blame but himself.

At least when Trump wanted to exact revenge on the people who picked on him, he did something that made sense like stealing an election.

American democracy can be rebuilt, but once your California rolls hit this morning's coffee grounds, they're gone forever.

Donald Trump to Royals: Remember When I Tried to Bang Princess Di?

Someday in the near future, when you and your family are gathered around a flickering Coleman lantern, digesting the golden retriever you enjoyed for dinner in the nightmarish hellscape that was once America, your children will ask you how Donald Trump came to be president in the first place.

As you have so many times before, you'll explain that it all started in the Eighties -- a time when the country was rich, the clothing was hideous, and douchebags reigned supreme.

Donald Trump: An Image

While the Donald was writing checks to the guy who wrote The Art of the Deal and plastering his name all over Manhattan, another blonde icon of the era was charming the masses half a world away.

Yes, although her marriage to Prince Charles was already crumbling, in 1987, Princess Diana was still "the people's princess," the most beloved royal in recent memory.

Lady Di had poise, grace, and the adoration of millions.

In other words, she was the polar opposite of the man who was not-so-affectionately dubbed "the Donald."

So it should come as no surprise that when she and Charles finally called it quits, Trump swooped in and attempted to seduce Diana.

And in the predatory fashion he's become known for, Trump wouldn't take no for an answer.

Donald and Di

This week, Trump will visit the UK for the first time as president.

And his past behavior and comments toward the royal family are very much on the minds of many Brits.

Members of the British media have been particularly fixated on a 2015 report from a BBC journalist and longtime friend of Diana's named Selina Scott.

"Trump clearly saw Diana as the ultimate trophy wife," Scott wrote.

Scott says Trump flat-out stalked Princess Di, to the point that his lavish presents became a source of great concern:

"As the roses and orchids piled up at her apartment she became increasingly concerned about what she should do. It had begun to feel as if Trump was stalking her," Scott claimed.

Donald Trump as Our POTUS

"'What am I going to do?' she asked. 'He gives me the creeps.' 'Just throw them in the bin,' I advised. Diana laughed."

Trump later admitted to being rebuffed by Diana and referred to her as "the one regret in the women department."

Trump enjoyed a perverse sort of revenge in the years after Diana's death, boasting that he "could have slept with her" in interviews, even though there were "times when she didn't look so great."

After placing Diana on his top ten list of women he would like to sleep with during an interview with Howard Stern, Trump added:

"She was crazy, but those are minor details."

And Diana's not the only female royal to capture the Donald's creepy attention.

Whan topless photos of Kate Middleton made the rounds back in 2012, Trump tweeted that it was Kate's fault the pics went public.

Kate Middleton, Very Pregnant

"Kate Middleton is great--but she shouldn't be sunbathing in the nude--only herself to blame," he tweeted at the time.

"Who wouldn't take Kate's picture and make lots of money if she does the nude sunbathing thing. Come on Kate!" 

Needless to say, all of this might make for a very awkward official visit.

Fortunately, the new generation of female royals are not easily intimidated by Trump -- and at least one of them has already experienced his creepiness head on.

Sources say Meghan Markle "avoided" Trump when she was a model on Deal or No Deal and he made a guest appearance on the show.

If only we could all take that approach.
