Trump-Hating New Yorker Columnist Admits ‘Weak’ Charges Against Trump Organization

Last-place year, New Yorker columnist Susan Glasser was so depressed/ exhausted by Trump that she fabricated, with the assistance of a friend, an unpronounceable German word to describe Trump, "Trumpregierungsschlamasselschmerz." She revelled Stephen Colbert as she clarified: "Trump, you got that. Regnorran is authority. Schlamassle is what it sounds like, craziness. And then schmerz, is like soul-sickness. So it's like Trump government craziness soul-sickness."

There were celebrations aplenty at MSNBC and same places where Trump-loathing passes flagrant when it was announced that the Trump Organization CFO Alan Weisselberg was indicted for not paying taxes on firm fringe benefit. It was fervently hoped that Weisselberg would "flip" and bring down Donald Trump as a result.

So it is interesting that Glasser is now warning liberals to not compile fools of themselves by spiking the win football in the end zone yet again. Her warning came on Thursday in the competently designation, "The Persistent Fantasy of a Trump Knockout Punch."

For the past four years, Donald Trump’s pundits have harbored a long-lasting imagination that there would be one definitive instant when he would ultimately be subject to the accountability he so luxuriously deserves. Each new Trump crisis--and there were many--offered the hope of some redemptive, indisputable, unambiguous mission to Trump that would conclude this sorry chapter in American politics. It never happened. Bombshell investigative reports about his failure to pay taxes and his secret hush-money pays and his crooked administers has now come disappeared. The Mueller report and Trump’s impeachment over the “perfect” phone call with Ukraine’s president came and proceeded.

And hitherto they continue to celebrate the "walls are closing in, " based on the latest plot by Democrat attorneys in Manhattan:

The flickering dream of a final Trump purge from public life made slightly more tangible shape on Thursday, in a New York City courtroom, when Trump’s tightly ensure personal companionship, the Trump Organization, and his longtime financial main, Allen Weisselberg, were indicted on criminal levy charges stemming from an alleged fifteen-year-long scheme, “orchestrated by the most senior executives” of the Trump Organization, as the prosecutor applied it, to circumvent taxes. The conjecture of the case appears to be to pressure the seventy-three-year-old Weisselberg to turn on Trump, his boss of decades, by imperil him with the future prospects of prison time.

Stand by for the buzzkill .....

Second-guessing, nonetheless, began immediately--even before Weisselberg appeared in handcuffs in tribunal on Thursday afternoon and the charges were unsealed. Scholars, of whom there are many, said that the case was weak, that this kind of charge was rarely raised, that Trump himself would escape sanction. “I’m sure the NY DA and AG understand that, from an optics standpoint, the first charges they wreaking against the Trump Organization can’t be petty, rarely-prosecuted crimes, ” David Axelrod, the Democratic strategist, tweeted on Wednesday. “Don’t they? ” Soon enough, this is exactly what Trump’s solicitors said formerly the charges were filed.

David Axelrod neglected to mention that the charges should also not appears to be politically caused. And for evidence of that, Weisselberg's advocates simply need to cite the words of New York State Attorney General Letitia James, who's teamed up with the Manhattan DA. She's as fair and objective toward Trump as a normal MSNBC host.

Team Trump unveiled a new social media app Thursday called GETTR.
But the app looks a lot like Twitter, whose exile of Trump angered many on the right.
GETTR's home screen, posts, and user profiles all look almost identical to Twitter's.
See more stories on Insider's business page.

Another Twitter alternative has cropped up from the right as conservatives shun - and are kicked off of - mainstream social media apps.

Team Trump rolled out a beta form of GETTR on Thursday, as Politico reported, a response to what many on the right say is censorship of conservatives on large internet platforms. Both Twitter and Facebook have exiled former President Donald Trump over his role in the January 6 Capitol insurrection.

Insider downloaded the app to check it out and noticed something peculiar - it looks a lot like Twitter, one of the platforms that conservatives have criticized.

It's also well ahead of Twitter in Apple's App Store rankings at No. 16, according to App Annie, with users like conservative news outlet Newsmax, Republican Sen. Josh Hawley, Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, and former Vice President Mike Pence. Trump will reportedly not join since he is still planning to build his own social platform.

Here are 3 ways that GETTR looks just like Twitter. Twitter declined to comment for this story.

The main timeline. This is GETTR's desktop version, with a news column on the right, a menu on the left, a "trending" section, and the main newsfeed.

The GETTR app is currently in beta mode and won't be officially launched until Sunday. 

The design is very similar to Twitter's, whose "What's happening" column is always visible.

There's also the option to pin posts, just like there is on Twitter. GETTR's user profiles also have four columns that are almost identical to Twitter's: Posts, Replies, Media, and Likes.

The GETTR posts themselves look like tweets.

Trump endorses primary rival challenging Republican impeachment supporter

Former President Donald Trump is weighing in for the first time on behalf of a primary challenger defending one of the 10 House Republicans who voted to impeach him in January.

Trump on Friday afternoon cast his support to Max Miller, a onetime White House aide who launched a campaign against Rep. Anthony Gonzalez of Ohio earlier Friday. Gonzalez, a second-term congressman and onetime professional football musician, said Trump didn’t do enough to quell the Jan. 6 Capitol riot when is in favour of onetime president’s impeachment a week later.

“Current Rep. Anthony Gonzalez should not be representing the people of the 16 th District because he does not represent their interest or their stomach, ” Trump said in a statement. “Max Miller has my Complete and Total Endorsement! ”

Miller, a 32 -year-old Marine reservist, is a Trump loyalist who worked on the onetime president’s 2016 expedition before invited to participate in the White House, first in the office of personnel and later as chairman of betterment. During the 2020 reelection campaign, he sufficed as lieutenant safarus director for presidential business. Miller, who greets from a foremost northeastern Ohio family, recently acquired a home in Rocky River, inside Gonzalez’s district.

Miller has made clear that he plans to turn Gonzalez’s impeachment vote into a centerpiece of his expedition, writing on Twitter that the congressman “betrayed” constituents with his vote.

Trump has told advisers that he’s intent on unseating the Republicans who backed his impeachment and others in the party he examines as faithless, including Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp, whom he has accused of not doing enough to intervene in the state’s 2020 referendum counting. The former president huddled with political consultants at his Mar-a-Lago estate Thursday to discuss his political contrives, including how he plans to weigh in on 2022 races.

Trump has already endorsed several nominees in next year’s referendums, including former White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, who is running for head of Arkansas, and Kansas Sen. Jerry Moran.

The former president will be able to drop substantial fund into these scoots. He has established a leadership PAC with tens of millions of dollars that could be spent on ads or doled out to campaigns he corroborates. He has begun laying out plans to start a super PAC, which would be able to invest unlimited amounts of money on advertising.

Miller connects an increasingly long index of onetime Trump aide-de-camps who are either endeavouring part or weighing potential dictations. In addition to Sanders, former envoy to Slovenia Lynda Blanchard has propelled a campaign for Alabama’s open Senate seat. Cliff Sims, another former Trump aide, is seriously considering entering the Alabama race, and former safarus adviser Katrina Pierson is a potential candidate for a special House election in Texas.

Gonzalez has stood by his impeachment vote, saying in a recent appearance on a republican podcast that during the Jan. 6 Capitol uprising, “the president didn’t step up in my opinion in nearly the right way, to stop it.”

“You have to love your country and you have to adhere to your expletive more strongly than you do your work, and I don't know what political demise will play out, ” Gonzalez said. “If my fate is ultimately that I don't get to come back, I will do that at peace.”
