The Terror Attacks Trump Won’t Talk About

Guess what they have in common.

On Monday, in a case little noticed by the national media, a man went on trial in federal court for plotting a potentially horrific terrorist attack in upstate New York. In 2015, this man allegedly planned to enlist accomplices to help him bomb a house of worship and open fire with assault rifles on any bystanders. “High casualty rates” was the goal. “If it gets down to the machete, we will cut them to shreds,” he allegedly said, according to prosecutors.

In a New Lawsuit, Melania Trump Calls First Lady Post “Once in a Lifetime” Branding Opportunity

A $150 million libel lawsuit filed by First Lady Melania Trump against The Daily Mail in New York this week was intended to take the newspaper to task for re-publishing a story during the campaign alleging she had once worked as an escort, a claim which the suit alleges seriously impairs Trump’s ability to take full advantage of her new role as First Lady, a “once-in-a-lifetime opportunity” to make millions of dollars in an Ivanka Trump-like brand empire.

This was followed by spontaneous demonstrations at airports across the nation after Trump’s ban on immigrants targeted war refugees like my parents, who escaped the Holocaust when they came to this country. After marching with 100,000 sisters and brothers in the rain in San Francisco I’ve been waiting to see where things go next.

Has Trump snapped the tether? His claim that media “doesn’t want to report” terrorism suggests he’s lost contact with reality

Trump did a dozen things last weekend that would have provoked a crisis — for a normal president. He’s not normal

President Trump is almost completely disconnected from reality. I wish I were just being hyperbolic and partisan, but I’m not. It’s difficult in this age of snappy internet takes and outraged social media memes to fully emphasize how dangerous it is that the president’s mental health is this shoddy. Based on his most recent public statements via Twitter and Fox News Channel, it should be obvious to anyone, even many of his voters, that his cheese has leaped from his cracker and is currently in an endless death spiral into the abyss.

Kellyanne Conway’s Credibility Questioned After ‘Bowling Green Massacre’ Flub

But the Donald Trump aide who also cited “alternative facts” is still getting TV news show bookings.

NEW YORK ― Television news executives are beginning to think twice about booking White House counselor Kellyanne Conway for segments over concerns her credibility has been too damaged.

Not all bookers are pulling the plug on putting the close Trump aide on their shows. Her proximity to the president remains a draw despite the dubiousness of some of her claims. But recent statements in which Conway invented a terrorist attack that she blamed the media for not covering, along with citing “alternative facts” when pressed on baseless White House claims, has forced some to reassess her utility on air.
