Donald and the "sleazy" press.

The Judge who trump labeled a "Mexican" hater  (I think the guy was actually born in Indiana) has ordered the release of the Trump University documents, and the Donald is not pleased.

In fact, he seems to be pretty pissed off these days. When he is not taking on the press for not fawning over him and trying to do real investigative journalism, he is making disparaging and racist remarks about a female senator.

But hey, that's just Donald being Donald. All in a day's work. (Funny, a guy who has gotten millions of dollars in free advertising is now pissed at the press. "Sleazy"?)

What really set Donald off today was the press reporting that after he proudly boasted on national television that he had raised "six million dollars" and given it to the vets, it was revealed that the former draft dodger had not given them a dime.  But then, as the heat got hotter, the Donald decided that it was time to pay the piper.

Most people would have given the money quietly with no fanfare, but not Donald; he called his rather contentious presser today to tell us all that he had given various veterans groups close to the six million dollars that he had promised.  

"At a news conference Tuesday, Trump released a list of 41 groups he said had received $5.6 million.

"Most of the money went out quite a while ago," Trump said. "Some of it went out more recently. But all of this has gone out."

Throughout Tuesday's confrontational event, Trump repeatedly slammed the media as "unbelievably dishonest" for its treatment of the issue and dismissed an ABC reporter as "a sleaze." He said many times that he didn't want credit for the fundraising but seemed peeved that he wasn't thanked for it.
"Instead of being like, 'Thank you very much, Mr. Trump,' or 'Trump did a good job,' everyone's saying, 'Who got it? Who got it? Who got it?' And you make me look very bad," Trump complained, taking on reporters in the room. "I have never received such bad publicity for doing such a good job."

The Associated Press spoke or left messages with each of the organizations Trump named. Of the 30 groups that responded by Tuesday, about half said they had received checks from Trump just last week.

Several said the checks were dated May 24 — the same date as Trump's interview with The Post, and shipped out overnight express.

Among them was the big check from Trump himself, written to the Marine Corps-Law Enforcement Foundation. Trump's campaign had previously told the newspaper that his promised $1 million personal donation had already been distributed.

Though the foundation had received a $100,000 check from Trump's charity in March, last week's $1 million donation came as something of a surprise.

"It is obviously a wonderful donation," said Sue Boulhosa, the group's executive director and sole employee. She said the group had "an inkling" that more might come but the amount was a happy surprise.

Trump has a longstanding relationship with the group, which Boulhosa said typically raises a total of between $2 million and $3 million a year. The foundation had presented Trump with an award at its 2015 gala held at a New York hotel.

Appearing on CNN Tuesday, Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton said she was glad that Trump had given out the promised money.

"The problem here is the difference between what Donald Trump says and what Donald Trump does," Clinton said. "He's bragged for months about raising $6 million for vets and donating $1 million himself, but it took a reporter to shame him into actually making the contribution."

Trump's campaign manager Corey Lewandowski had originally told the Post that the event had raised about $4.5 million — less than the $6 million originally announced by Trump — because some who'd pledged had backed out. Lewandowski also said all the money had been given out.

Trump had claimed during the fundraiser that he'd raised $6 million through a combination of pledges from wealthy friends, the public and $1 million from himself.

But the campaign refused for months to disclose which charities had received the money, leading to questions about whether the money raised was less than he had said." [Source]

Just Donald being Donald.

In Chicongo recently, a black man, Leroy Willis, brutally stabbed a white man, Todd Light, in a botched robbery attempt. Please say a prayer for this man, yet ANOTHER victim of black-on-white savagery. Let's all hope for Todd's speedy recovery, and that Leroy gets what's coming to him.

P.S. - Check out the pic of Leroy Willis - he looks just like Michelle O. without "her" wig on.

So, there's this guy that just got elected president of the Phillipines, Rodrigo Duterte. His nickname is "Duterte Harry" (a reference to this guy) for his endorsement of vigilante justice as a solution to that nation's crime problems. (This isn't just big talk: He had associations with paramilitary death squads that went around whacking suspected criminals while he was mayor of Davao City.)

People have been saying Duterte is the Trump of the Phillipines. Maybe it's because Trump also likes to talk tough about law and order -- like when he fondly reminisces about the "good old days" when right-thinking people would just beat up those "loser" minority protesters. Or it could be because the two of them both enjoy pissing off feminists (Duterte is big on telling rape jokes).

But Trump and Duterte also have something else in common: They are not terribly fond of the press.

I don't think Trump was gonna not pay, it's just the way he does things; that is he gets what he wants (competing media with the debate he was warring with, and for charity so as to make him look good and them look like the petty pie fight they actually were) then he's done, and someone else can clean up after. He's finding out that you pay a price for that shit when you run for president, and also that the press does in fact get to ask you mean questions if you are the nominee for a major party. I would submit that picky media questions about campaign stunts are small potatoes compared to the demands of the presidency.

Believe me, after Trump gets in office, he's gonna do a hell of a lot more for veterans that give them a measly 6 mil.

Ghetto rats? Illegal aliens? Not so much. They're going to the back of the line.

Sure doesn't look like it, since the news media had to shame him into not shafting veterans.

Of course, once he's in the Oval Office, he'll open up those libel laws so he can sue that "loser" news media out of existence, and then no one will be able to hold him accountable ever again.

My dick gets hard whenever Butt Trumpet's wife or daughter comes on screen. White bitches are the best.

So President Trump was visited by the ghosts of three former presidents: George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and Abraham Lincoln.

Washington told him: "Tell the truth."

Jefferson told him: "Make a declaration."

Lincoln told him: "Go to the theater."

This is just an example of the current state of "journalism". They build up Trump with praise and a lack of investigation into his shady dealings. Well, it helped get him the nomination and now it's time time to get dirty. Welcome to the show Donald.

Donald Trump's wealthy, whoop!! Whoop!!

Who in hell is checking this creep for MENTAL STABILITY? If he was black money or no money, talking his shit, ole homeboy would be serving a lifetime or two sentences in the Caucasoid Dog Pound Zoo. Nobody would listen to him breathe, let alone listen to ANYTHING he said. Something's wrong with Donald Trump, I don't care if he's a Zillionaire. Something's wrong with most of you called "White." You all probably have an undiscovered form of the ZIKA Virus.
