Photo: Drew Angerer/Getty Images Scientists have long theorized about a hypothetical “most excruciating dinner party possible,” and now a potential breakthrough has been made: In October, Mark Zuckerberg, Peter Thiel, and Donald Trump had dinner in Washington, D.C. NBC News confirmed the existence of the dinner, which neither Facebook nor the White House had announced. How should we feel about the fact that 2007 Muhammad Ali Entrepreneur Award Winner and President of the United States Donald Trump is privately and secretively dining with the executive of the largest communications apparatus on the planet and his democracy-skeptic mentor? Scared? Paranoid? Facebook suggests you should feel no particular way about it: “As is normal for a CEO of a major U.S. company, Mark accepted an invitation to have dinner with the president and first lady at the White House,” the company told NBC. They are, of course, right: This dinner was very normal. Not only is it normal … [Read more...] about How Should You Feel About Mark Zuckerberg’s Dinner Date With Peter Thiel and Donald Trump?
The sheriff’s in town. Photo: Angelo Merendino/Getty Images At this year’s Republican National Convention, nothing seemed to bring the Grand Old Party together more than the thought of putting Hillary Clinton in prison. Now, Donald Trump has revealed a “plan” for how he intends to jail his political rival when he takes power. The one challenge that any plan for imprisoning Clinton needs to overcome is that she doesn’t seem to have committed a crime. The FBI has already exonerated the Democratic nominee for mishandling some classified information while serving as secretary of State. True, newly released emails have cast some light on the relationship between the Clinton Foundation and Clinton’s State Department. But if these new missives document illegal corruption, then president Trump will probably have to jail the entire Congress: The emails don’t show Hillary Clinton diverting funding from security at the Benghazi embassy to a foundation … [Read more...] about Donald Trump Unveils Actual Plan to ‘Lock Her Up’
President Donald Trump said he would act to prevent military leadership from stripping the Trident pin from Navy Seal Eddie Gallagher, after he was accused of war crimes. “The Navy will NOT be taking away Warfighter and Navy Seal Eddie Gallagher’s Trident Pin,” Trump wrote on Twitter. “This case was handled very badly from the beginning. Get back to business!”Trump commented after Gallagher’s lawyer appeared on Fox and Friends Thursday morning to discuss the military admiral readying to launch a review to strip Gallagher of his trident pin. The Trident pin is awarded to Seals who enforce good order and discipline. Gallagher has retired but stripping the pin would be a drastic symbolic gesture removing him from the Seals, seen by many as a retaliatory gesture by his commanders. Gallagher was acquitted of accused war crimes in July by a military jury but was found guilty of posing for a photo with a dead Islamic State fighter. The military reduced his … [Read more...] about Donald Trump: Navy Will Not Strip Seals’ Trident Pin from Eddie Gallagher
