Keith Olbermann: This Election is Too Important to Dare Not Vote for Hillary Clinton

Powerful video from KO...because it's a Twitter video I can't embed it here. Basically says Trump is insane, and however you want to define his insanity, it begins with extreme anger management issues. Worth a click to the link below.

This Election is Too Important to Dare Not Vote for Hillary Clinton
Don't like Hillary? Desperate to change the system? That's fine. But those impulses must wait.

Apparently, according to this guy, God told him Trump is a Miley Cyrus wrecking ball. GOD told him!

2009: Following her son's death, Trump blogged RE: how he worked like hell to pick up Kelly Preston

In January 2009, Kelly Preston and John Travolta's son Jett passed away at the age of 16 after suffering a seizure while on a family vacation. Four days later, Trump wrote a blog post dedicated to Preston on the website of the now-defunct Trump University, which has been sued by the state of New York and former students over claims of fraud.

The mogul expressed his condolences to Preston for her loss, but not before he mentioned the time he tried to sleep with her. According to Trump, the attempt failed.

"A long time ago, before I was married, I met Kelly Preston at a club and worked like hell to try and pick her up," he wrote on the Trump University website. "She was beautiful, personable, and definitely had allure. At the time I had no idea she was married to John Travolta."

He continued, "In any event, my track record on this subject has always been outstanding, but Kelly wouldn't give me the time of day. She was very nice, very elegant, but I didn't have a chance with her, and that was that."

Trump ended his blog post by saying his thoughts were with Preston and her family.

Donald Trump Never Paid For Ryan White’s HIV Treatment, His Mom Says

Source: Huffington Post

WASHINGTON ― The mother of Ryan White disputed claims on Monday that Donald Trump paid for her son’s medical treatment and warned that the GOP presidential nominee’s bullying is setting a bad example for children.

White contracted HIV at the age of 13 when receiving a tainted blood treatment for his hemophilia. He gained national attention while fighting the stigma that came with the disease at the time, and became the face of public education about HIV. White died in 1990.

His mother, Jeanne White-Ginder, continues to share her son’s story and speak against bullying ― something he faced when trying to attend school after he contracted HIV.

In an interview with the Indianapolis Star, White-Ginder said Trump never paid for Ryan’s treatment ― a rumor that has circulated for years.

Clinton Campaign Website: "Trump loves conspiracies so much that we made a special hat for him"



Raw Story: Trump acted like ‘total f*cking beast’ at coke-fueled parties with teen girls

Trump acted like ‘total f*cking beast’ at coke-fueled parties with teen girls: report

http://www.rawstory.com/2016/10/trump-acted-like-total-fcking-beast-at-coke-fueled-parties-with-teen-girls-report/



Donald Trump was once known for throwing cocaine-fueled parties where teenage models were introduced to the real estate developer’s rich, older friends.

Michael Gross, who has covered Trump since 1985 and has also written a book on the modeling industry, spoke recently to two men who had attended those parties back in the 1990s, reported The Daily Beast.

Both men told Gross how Trump took over corner suites at the Plaza Hotel to impress his guests.

Girls as young as 15 years old were lured to the parties with the promise that they’d meet well-connected men who might help them enter the modeling industry.

“There were always dramas because the men threw money and drugs at them to keep them enticed,” said one former guest, a fashion photographer. “It’s based on power and dominating girls who can’t push back and can be discarded. There’s always someone to pick them back up. Nobody wants to call home and say ‘Help me.’”

Trump spends $300K in donor funds on copies of his book, selling them for 8.5 x the cover price.



WASHINGTON ― Donald Trump used small donors’ money to buy nearly $300,000 worth of books from the publisher of his Art of the Deal last month, continuing a pattern of plowing campaign money back into his own businesses.

The Oct. 15 Federal Election Commission filing for Trump Make America Great Again Committee does not specify which books in particular were purchased, but the committee’s own website suggests it was Trump’s 1987 business bestseller.

“I’ve signed an out-of-print, hardcover copy of ‘The Art of the Deal’ just for you, because I want you on board with Team Trump!” Trump wrote in an Aug. 2 fundraising email, which went on to offer the book for a minimum donation of $184.

Trump’s statement calling the book “out-of-print,” repeated on the committee’s website, however, is false. The Art of the Deal had a new paperback edition printed last October, and the hardcover is currently in print and available from Random House and retail booksellers. Barnes and Noble, for example, sells it for $22.35.

The 281 People, Places and Things Donald Trump Has Insulted on Twitter: A Complete List (UPDATED)

The 281 People, Places and Things Donald Trump Has Insulted on Twitter: A Complete List

http://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2016/01/28/upshot/donald-trump-twitter-insults.html?_r=1

Since declaring his candidacy for president last June, Donald Trump has used Twitter to lob insults at presidential candidates, journalists, news organizations, nations, a Neil Young song and even a lectern in the Oval Office. We know this because we’ve read, tagged and quoted them all. Below, a directory of sorts, with links to the original tweets. Insults within the last 60 days are highlighted.

1970s: Trump builds Grand Hyatt w/ tax break from Manhattan, then screws Manhattan. USA!

When Donald made his first huge splash by building the Grand Hyatt hotel in Midtown Manhattan in the late 1970s, he did so on the back of an enormous, unprecedented tax break from the city. Trump, through his big-donor father, had close ties to then-Mayor Abe Beame (D). "Whatever my friends Fred and Donald want in this town, they get," Beame once told the man who sold the hotel site to Trump. What Trump wanted, and got, was a deal in which a tax-exempt city agency bought the site of the hotel, leased it back to Trump for $1 a year, and spared him from paying property taxes for 40 years.

The massive tax abatement angered other developers, so the city made Trump agree to give back some of his profits each year as a rent payment. But when the Grand Hyatt became a success, the hotel to cooked the books so it could pay the city less.

In 1986, according to CBS News, the Grand Hyatt had its best year ever. After getting $3.7 million from the hotel in 1985, city officials expected an even larger payment the next year after the record profits. Instead, Trump ordered the Grant Hyatt to change its accounting methods to lower its reported profits. Despite its banner year, the hotel paid the city just $667,000.

Karen Burstein, the city's auditor general, investigated the hotel's accounting practices and called them "aberrant and distortive" in a 1989 report. Experts who reviewed the report for CBS News said that it "detailed failures in basic bookkeeping, the seemingly sudden adoption of irregular accounting methods, and efforts to stymie officials." That included being unable to find many of the hotel's ledgers and other financial paperwork, which Burstein called "just inexcusable." She concluded that Trump owed the city $2.9 million as a result of his maneuvers, but it doesn't appear to have gotten the money back. The New York Times reported last month that the city may have recovered only $850,000 from Trump in a 2004 settlement.
