Coffee & Headline News- Halloween, Trump Lawsuit, Tent Cities, Fake News Media
It’s Halloween. So, before you dress up in costume and head out the door for work, let’s review today’s headlines with some pumpkin spiced coffee.
Another Trump Lawsuit
President Trump has more lawsuits pending than I have clients. Another lawsuit was filed accusing Trump of misleading salespeople in a multi-level marketing company that he endorsed in speeches and on “The Celebrity Apprentice.”
The salespeople worked for telephone company ACN and had to pay fees and additional expenses such as attending seminars in order to sell the phone service.
ACN has received cease and desist orders in other states and is under scrutiny in Canada and Australia for being a pyramid scheme.
Hate Crimes Website
After the mass shooting at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein has announced that the DOJ (Department of Justice) will be creating a website where hate crimes can be reported.
With the migrant caravan the focus of President Trump especially with the midterm elections five days away, Trump has announced that he will build tent cities “all over the place” since his administration is not doing “catch and release.”
Asylum seekers will have to wait for their hearings at the tent cities until immigration judges rule on their case. What Trump fails to realize is that living in a tent city is better than the current conditions in their countries. In addition, lawsuits remain pending on the constitutionality of keeping asylum seekers detained until immigration cases are resolved.
I wonder how much this is going to cost versus just allowing them to work temporarily and pay taxes.
President Trump Sues Stormy Daniels
President Trump wants more than $300,000 in legal fees after having the defamation lawsuit filed against him by Stormy Daniels dismissed.
However, the lawsuit regarding the NDA (Non-Disclosure Agreement) remains pending, so it is likely that the judge will wait until the case is over to decide if attorney’s fees are owed on any side.
Now the Media is “NOT” the Enemy of the People
The President’s lies at this point are just delusional. Per Trump’s tweet, he has been saying all along that the fake news media is the enemy of the people, not that the media is the enemy of the people. Do you like your Kool-Aid in grape or cherry flavor?
Of course, even Fox News has been speaking out lately against the “media is the enemy of the people” rhetoric by Trump, which explains why he is walking back his statements now.
CNN and others in the Fake News Business keep purposely and inaccurately reporting that I said the “Media is the Enemy of the People.” Wrong! I said that the “Fake News (Media) is the Enemy of the People,” a very big difference. When you give out false information – not good!
