Trump Trash, Putin Proxies, PR Crisis, FCC Whoppers
Trash to Trump, 41% of millennials, Putin’s proxies, PR crisis team, inadequate judges, and FCC whoppers. All this and more in your daily Trump Damage Report for Friday, December 15th, 2017.
- Trump just compared legal immigrants on diversity visas to trash, Vox reports. He hates them. Unless they have the body of a model, in which case, he’ll pay them cash to sleep with him.
- 41% of white millennials voted for Trump, The Washington Post reports. Why? Racial resentment and economic anxiety. But mostly racial resentment.
- Putin’s proxies funneled millions into the GOP’s campaigns, including The Donald’s, Dallas News reports.
- The New Mexico school shooter (did you not hear about this one?) had a secret life on Pro-Trump White Supremacy sites, The Daily Beast reports.
- Secretary of Everything Jared Kushner has sought out hiring a public relations crisis team amid the Russia probe, The Washington Post reports.
- Trump lawyers are set for a key meeting with Robert Mueller next week, CNN reports. The Muellerman cometh.
- Deutsche Bank was asked for information possibly linked to the Traitor Flynn, CNBC reports.
- One of Trump’s woefully inadequate judicial nominees struggled to answer basic legal questions at a hearing, CNN reports with video. You should watch this – it’s mortifying.
- Trump says that “people” are “very, very angry” with the FBI and Justice Department, Axios reports. When Trump says “people”, he means him. He is “people”, and “some people say” and “people tell me”. That’s all him.
- Doubting the intelligence of America, Trump pursues Putin and leaves the Russian threat unchecked, The Washington Post reports.
- Wired gives us the biggest whoppers from Trump’s FCC meeting which killed net neutrality. We particularly enjoyed the idea put forward by the Republicans that the public outcry would prevent the big ISPs from throttling due to a public relations nightmare. Public relations don’t matter if you hold a monopoly.
- The Trump golf count is now at 79, with a cost to the taxpayer of around $90 million and change.
- Bloomberg went off on the Trump tax heist, saying we CEOs “don’t need the money”, The Hill reports.
