Donald Trump lashed out at the press over scrutiny of the money he raised to donate to veterans groups, in one instance pointing to a reporter and calling him a “sleaze.”
At a press conference in Trump Tower on Tuesday, Trump announced that he’d give $6 million — including $1 million of his money — to a variety of veterans groups.
On Tuesday, after weeks of questions about whether Trump had actually raised the $6 million he claimed he did that night and where, exactly, that money went, the candidate finally provided his first detailed accounting, reading off a list of 41 different charities that he says have since received a total of roughly $5.6 million raised as a result of that night.* The reality television star-turned-politician also stood before cameras and declared—not kidding—that he never wanted to get credit for any of it.
“If we could, I wanted to keep it private because I don’t think it’s anybody’s business if I want to send money to the vets,” Trump said of a fundraiser he’s repeatedly boasted about as proof of his largess and power. “I wanted to make this out of the goodness of my heart—I didn’t want to do this where the press is involved,” Trump said of donations he funneled through the charitable foundation that bears his name. “I didn’t want the credit for raising all this money for the vets,” Trump said inside a building with his last name emblazoned on the front of it in giant, gold letters.
He held an event on EVERY. SINGLE. NETWORK. to counter a Presidential debate.
There are no good guys here.
The American people HATE the press and don’t trust them.
Key part of my defense of Hubbard looks like it blew up yesterday…
Gov. Robert Bentley is expected to testify Wednesday morning in the ethics trial of Alabama House Speaker Mike Hubbard, the Associated Press reported.
Reporters from Alabama Public Television and the Alabama Political Reporter said today Bentley was on the list of witnesses for Wednesday that prosecutors announced in court.
Four of the charges against Hubbard accuse him of lobbying the governor’s office and the state Department of Commerce on behalf of Southeast Alabama Gas District and CV Holdings, a business owned by Robert Abrams that includes the Capitol Cups plant in Auburn.
In 2012, SEAGD hired Hubbard under a consulting contract to help recruit businesses to the Wiregrass, and Abrams hired Hubbard to help market his company’s products.
Verne Verne Verne was very Biased against Alabama
The reason for the emphasis on the word “amazing”? Saban used the word while questioning the motivation behind wanting to hold satellite camps and sharing concerns about issues created by such camps.
“I don’t know how much it benefits anybody because all the people that say this is creating opportunities for kids, this is all about recruiting,” Saban said. “That’s what it’s about. Anybody that tells you that … What’s amazing to me is somebody didn’t stand up and say ‘Here’s going to be the unintended consequences of what you all are doing.'”
The rest of Saban’s satellite camp rant was mostly Saban, as he has before, sharing his belief that satellite camps don’t have much, if any, value and explaining some potential issues created by satellite camps.
Then came the question about Harbaugh.
“I’m not blaming Jim Harbaugh,” Saban said. “I’m not saying anything about him. I’m just saying it’s bad for college football. Jim Harbaugh can do whatever he wants to do. I’m not saying anything bad about him if he thinks that’s what’s best. There needs to be somebody that looks out for what’s best for the game, not what’s best for the Big 10 or not what’s best for the SEC or not what’s best for Jim Harbaugh but what’s best for the game of college football — the integrity of the game, the coaches, the players and the people that play it. That’s bigger than all this. That’s what somebody should do.”
It does nothing for him. Bama is read as read can be, so is the South. There is zero advantage to it.
Trump U was a scam.
Trump supporters are almost as bad as Obama supporters sometimes…
The suspension, first announced on Breitbart News Daily, a conservative program aired on Sirius, comes on the heels of Beck’s interview with author Brad Thor. Thor said he thought Trump’s election would result in an “extinction-level event” for the country and if so, Congress would be powerless to remove him. If that happened, Thor said he was about to “ask something very bad” before asking “what patriot will step up and (remove Trump from office.)”
Beck said he agreed with Thor’s assessment. He later released a statementdenying there was any mention of harming Trump or any other candidate.
This is insanely phony, people have been calling for Obama’s impeachment and removal from office from day 1. Removal does not equal assassination.
Also, totally not a cult…
Seems both side would like to have this power…
I am pretty shocked at how low drug use is in Limestone County…
An outbreak of measles that began with an inmate at a federal detention center for immigrants in central Arizona has now grown to 11 confirmed cases.
Seven of those infected are inmates at the Eloy Detention Center, and four are workers at the facility, Pinal County Health Services spokesman Joe Pyritz said.
The privately-run facility has stopped accepting new detainees or releasing those currently held there.
State and county health officials said they’re working to stop new transmissions by isolating patients, vaccinating people detained in the privately-run facility and trying to identify people who were at locations the four infected workers visited.
