Keeping track of Donald Trump’s seemingly endless stream of fuck-ups and “fuck yous” can be challenging for even the most dogged reporter, so it was as a great public service on Wednesday that Trump recalled some of his greatest hits at a rally in Florida—while additionally claiming he could have stopped 9/11.
As unearthed by The Hollywood Reporter, there exists a (supposed) genuine Donald Trump handprint, at Madame Tussaud’s in New York. They have helpfully mocked up a life-sized printable replica. It now hangs in a bathroom inside the Rayburn House Office Building, as you can see in this photograph provided to Gawker by a Congressional staffer who works in the building.
Once upon a time, Americans were confronted with two nightmarish scenarios: The untimely and apparently unavoidable collapse of a world economy—an economy that had inexplicably come to rely upon a precarious global network called “the Internet” and a seemingly infinite series of overvalued companies peddling nothing but buzzwords like some horrible late capitalist Matryoshka doll—and a Donald Trump presidency.
By now, you suckers have probably heard all about the supposed “controversy” involving a screaming baby at a Donald Trump campaign event in Virginia. You’ve probably slurped up all the mainstream media’s glop about the baby, and are ready to pass judgement on Donald Trump. But Alex Jones has the real truth: That baby was a crisis actor.
A lot happened at Donald Trump’s rally in Ashburn, Va. yesterday. Trump was gifted a Purple Heart, leading him to say that he “always wanted to get the Purple Heart” but “this was much easier.” He later kicked a screaming baby out of the rally. But that Trump is a shortcutting egotist who will lower himself to the level of a screaming child isn’t exactly a surprise. More telling is that Trump’s speech at the rally revealed a complete lack of knowledge about where he was.
During a combative interview with CNN’s Wolf Blitzer on Tuesday, Donald Trump spokeswoman Katrina Pierson questioned whether the candidate owed an apology to the parents of fallen soldier Humayun Khan and seemingly blamed President Obama and Hillary Clinton for his death, which occurred in 2004 under President Bush.
