    The National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism received a $100,000 donation from President Trump. The money, which came from Trump’s third quarter salary in 2018, will assist the NIAAA with its mission to conduct research on alcoholism and alcohol-related problems. The NIAAA falls under the National Institutes of Health. The donation, reportedly announced by the White House, also carries personal significance for Trump, who does not drink. His older brother, Fred Trump, died of alcoholism in 1981. "To this day, I've never had a drink," Trump said in 2017, discussing the impact his brother had on his life. "And...

    Last Saturday’s column on the New York Times investigation of Trump family tax dodging put aside the question of whether hefty inheritance taxes are good public policy. Let’s take it up now. Those who complained that my nondefense “normalized” Trump-era corruption miss an obvious fact. The events took place 30 years ago. It was already normalized. The Times itself has now run two op-eds making the same point. The appraiser who valued Trump property for tax purposes, according to the paper’s investigation, was a “favorite of New York City’s big real-estate families.” Trump family lawyers and accountants were the same...

    President Trump participated in dubious tax schemes during the 1990s, including instances of outright fraud, that greatly increased the fortune he received from his parents, an investigation by The New York Times has found.Snippets: "The president’s parents, Fred and Mary Trump, transferred well over $1 billion in wealth to their children." and "President Trump had virtually no involvement whatsoever with these matters". Robert Trump, the president's brother: "Our dear father, Fred C. Trump, passed away in June 1999. Our beloved mother, Mary Anne Trump, passed away in August 2000. All appropriate gift and estate tax returns were filed, and the...

    In a preview clip from Friday's edition of her Netflix show, comedian Chelsea Handler strung together three minutes worth of jokes about the Trump administration being racist that included some strange claims.Handler's show, which can actually be entertaining, often blends news and comedy in a fashion not dissimilar to what's done on "The Daily Show" or "Saturday Night Live's" Weekend Update segment. In fact, the clip released ahead of Friday's episode follows those formats pretty closely.The segment is supposed to function as a darkly humorous explainer on various kinds of racism in modern America. As Handler tackled the Ku Klux...

    by Brooke Bosca | Top Right NewsTalk of a Trump "scandal" hit the Washington and New York press corps this weekend, as "bombshell" videos of President Trump's father Fred Trump "emerged" showing "racist" ads the elder Trump made during a 1969 run for Mayor of New York City. The videos were shared by The Washington Post's fact-checker, Glenn Kessler, on Twitter, and quickly spread by re-tweets by reporters from multiple publications. Here's the report describes the "ads": In 1969, Fred Trump plotted to run for mayor of New York … He made two test television commercials. One of them, called ‘Dope Man’, featured...

    They're well-produced, but they're still "clever fakes." Many reporters were shocked this week after racially charged videos surfaced online purporting to be campaign ads created in 1969 for Fred Trump, the late father of President Trump. This particular media feeding frenzy was set off by longtime Clinton confidant Sidney Blumenthal, who mentioned the videos in an essay published this week by the London Review of Books. Blumenthal wrote: In 1969, Fred Trump plotted to run for mayor of New York … He made two test television commercials. One of them, called 'Dope Man', featured a drug-addled black youth wandering the...

    When Maria Andrews’ mother came home with a load of heavy groceries and found a broken elevator at the modest brick Tysens Park Apartments on Staten Island, she wasn’t expecting to get much help from building management. But then she saw Fred Trump pull up in an elegant black limousine. She put down her groceries and rapped on the limo’s tinted window to complain to the real estate royal who owned her building. To her surprise, the elder Trump came out and helped her carry her groceries up five flights of stairs, Andrews says today — and he stayed for...
  • Fred Trump marched in protest of Americans murdered by Socialists/Communists (NOT the KKK)

    "Fred Trump was marching in support of two Americans named Amoroso and Carisi who were Italian immigrants, and had been murdered on the streets by Anarchists, when Irish Catholic cops started beating the hell out of Protestant whites in religious hatred. The murderer arrested was Adamo Mastrangelo, again an Italian." "Look back to that year and you have 1927 and you will find decades of violence being unleashed in America by these Anarchists. The press spiked a lunatic to assassinate President Theodore Roosevelt as they did not like this outsider Republican. The Anarchist was code for MARXIST or COMMUNISTS."
  • Woody Guthrie Was Calling a Trump Racist More Than 65 Years Ago

    Donald Trump is plenty loathed these days for lining his campaign trail with what many find to be racist proclamations, but Woody Guthrie was way early on the tip with a hatred for Trump's father spanning back more than 65 years. In 1950 the famed "This Land Is Your Land" populist folk singer moved into a Brooklyn public housing project owned by Donald Trump's father, Fred Trump, and soon found it to be segregated by a color line excluding any black tenants. As Gawker reports, in Guthrie's writings he took to calling the white "Beach Haven" neighborhood "Bitch Havens." How...
