Tiffany Trump Torched For ‘Beyond Pathetic’ LGBTQ Campaign Event

Reprinted with permission from Alternet

Tiffany Trump, the First Family's youngest daughter, is being highly criticized after headlining a disastrous and offensive "LGBTQ pride" campaign event for her father, in which she left out the "T" – for the transgender community – upon hitting the stage and garbling what should have been a simple "LGBTQIA."

Tiffany also immediately told the presumably LGBTQ Republicans at the sparsely-attended event her father used to support them, but stopped after entering politics.

#EndorseThis: Trump ‘Never Heard’ Of Category 5 Storm — Except He Did

Donald Trump says he has “never heard of a Category Five” storm like Hurricane Dorian. But as Jimmy Kimmel reminds us, Trump said the same thing not so long ago about Hurricane Maria — in fact, he said it several times.

But never mind. If the president of the United States has “the memory and skin tone of a goldfish,” to quote Jimmy again, at least he can still play golf — as he did the other day when he was supposedly preparing for the impending natural disaster.

Kimmel reviews all the Trump news that transpired during his August vacation, including the mini-scandal over his younger daughter: “Poor Tiffany! She gets less affection from her dad than Kim Jong-un.” And then there’s the ever-amusing Mike Pence. Jimmy wonders, would Pence eat dog food if Trump told him too? (Yes.)

Click and laugh.

 

Fired Aide Shared Trump’s ‘Hideously Cruel” Attitude Toward Daughter

When a close aide to President Donald Trump, Madeleine Westerhout, resigned abruptly on Thursday, there was immediate speculation and curiosity about the unknown reason for the departure.

On Friday afternoon, Politico finally published a story providing an answer. According to the report, Westerhout was fired for “bragging to reporters that she had a better relationship with Trump than his own daughters, Ivanka and Tiffany Trump, and that the president did not like being in pictures with Tiffany because he perceived her as overweight.”

She also “jokingly told the journalists that Trump couldn’t pick Tiffany out of a crowd,” the report found.

Westerhout’s remarks reportedly came at a dinner in New Jersey with reporters that was supposed to be off the record, a common occurrence for press traveling with the president. Politico cited its report to “two people familiar with the matter.”

An anonymous official seemed to confirm the account to Politico, saying: “This was an off-the-record dinner and the media blatantly violated that agreement.”

While Trump’s reported attitude toward his daughter Tiffany is disturbing, it’s not out of line with what is publicly known about his feelings toward women. He lashed out at a former Miss Universe contestant for gaining “a massive amount of weight.” He has also shown a bizarre obsession with his daughter Ivanka’s appearance, saying she has the “best body” and a “nice figure.” He even added: “I’ve said that if Ivanka weren’t my daughter, perhaps I’d be dating her.”

LEAKED: Tiffany Trump’s Prepared RNC Remarks

After Melania Trump’s riveting remarks at the Republican National Convention last night, the political world is all atwitter: How will the rest of Donald Trump’s family follow what will surely go down in history as one of the best speeches by the spouse of a nominee — any nominee — in convention history? How can they?!

Well, The National Memo has received a leaked copy of Tiffany Trump’s address to tonight’s convention audience, and it must be said, in all fairness: It’s a great speech. Who comes up with this stuff?
