SENECAL: “Donald Trump was born on Flag Day and I swear it’s in his blood”

Posted on Updated on

 

  • ” Donald Trump was born on Flag Day, and I swear it’s in his blood”

 

( Washington Times ) If you want to know what Donald Trump is all about, drive past his Mar-a-Lago home and club on South Ocean Boulevard in Palm Beach.

Fluttering over the landscape is a massive America flag visible in all directions. Originally, the flag was closer to the street and mounted on a much taller flag pole. Then the town of Palm Beach, where anyone worth less than $100 million is considered a pauper, claimed the flag’s height exceeded zoning regulations and began fining Mr. Trump $1,250 a day unless he removed it.

Mr. Trump sued for $25 million, claiming his First Amendment rights were being violated. Eventually, Mr. Trump and the Florida town settled. Mr. Trump agreed to mount the flag on a shorter flag pole. Instead of paying the fine that by then totaled $120,000, Mr. Trump agreed to donate $100,000 to Iraq War veterans’ charities or the local VA hospital.

As he is glad to tell you, Mr. Trump usually wins in the end. He moved the flag to ground that he had his workers elevate, so now it towers over the landscape just as much as before.

Tony Senecal, Mr. Trump’s former butler at Mar-a-Lago and now its historian, attributes the spat to Trump’s patriotism.

“You know Donald Trump was born on Flag Day, and I swear it’s in his blood,” Mr. Senecal says. “He really is red, white, and blue.”

AL SHARPTON’S DAUGHTER ARRESTED ON HER BIRTHDAY AFTER FIGHT WITH TAXI DRIVER

Posted on Updated on

The Reverend Al Sharpton tweeted on the morning of September 8 about his youngest daughter's birthday. She was arrested around 3am on September 9

 

  • Al Sharpton’s daughter capped off her 30th birthday by getting arrested after she allegedly attacked a cabbie and stole his keys, cops said.
  • Two years ago, another Sharpton daughter, Dominique, 31, grabbed attention by suing the city for $5 million after she tripped and fell on a Manhattan street.

 

The New York Post reports:

 

Al Sharpton’s daughter capped off her 30th birthday by getting arrested after she allegedly attacked a cabbie and stole his keys, cops said.

Ashley Sharpton was charged with petty larceny after briefly tussling with the cabbie on the West Side of Manhattan, then snatching his keys and tossing them, sources said.

“I threw your keys in the street,” Ashley, 30, told the hack.

Sharpton was partying with friends when the women piled into a cab around 1 a.m., telling the driver, “just go, just go.”

But without a destination, the frustrated cabbie quickly pulled over at West 48th St and 9th Avenue and demanded clearer instructions, sources said.

Sharpton, who was sitting in the front passenger seat, allegedly grabbed his keys out of the ignition and stalked off.

Things got physical when the cabbie got out and tried to grab the keys from Ashley, telling her, “Give me my keys back,” cops said.

“I don’t have your keys,” she allegedly spat before later admitting she tossed them.

One of her pals might have given Ashley an awful birthday present by filming the encounter. Cops said the footage shows Sharpton punching the driver in the chest.

She’s been celebrating her big birthday since Thursday, social media shows, lunching with friends at STK Steak House and Ashford & Simpson’s Sugar Bar on West 72nd.

Two years ago, another Sharpton daughter, Dominique, 31, grabbed attention by suing the city for $5 million after she tripped and fell on a Manhattan street. The case is ongoing.

In Honor of George W. Bush’s 71st Birthday, Here Are the 71 Most George-Bushiest Moments in History

Posted on


 

 

( IJR ) Our forty-third President George W. Bush turned 71 on Thursday. In his glorious 71 years of meme-worthy life, Bush has certainly created an unforgettable style and endeared himself to America and, frankly, the world, for better or worse.

The former president, who took his lumps in office, has seen a resurgence in popularity since his term ended nearly a decade ago. Websites that posted content longing for his impeachment once now publish writers who “Thank God” for his existence.

In the tradition of past Bush presidencies, W. has conducted himself as a gentleman after leaving office, being kind to his predecessors and philanthropic to the people he wished to lead. W., in his own way, is masterfully creating another legacy after his presidency: winning over critics through kindness, mediocre paintings, and ponchos.

So we give you, the 71 most W. moments in history. Enjoy.

Early life

Melanija Knavs was born in Novo Mesto in the southeast of Slovenia, which was then part of Yugoslavia,[5][6] on April 26, 1970.[7] She is a daughter of Amalija (née Ulčnik) and Viktor Knavs, who managed car and motorcycle dealerships for a state-owned vehicle manufacturer.[8][9] Her father was from the nearby town of Radeče.[8] Her mother came from the village of Raka,[10] and was a patternmaker at the children’s clothing manufacturer “Jutranjka” in Sevnica.[8][11] When later working as a model, she changed the Slovene form of her last name Knavs to the German Knauss.[12]

The First Lady Fashionista

US First Lady Melania Trump’s wardrobe has been the centre of discussions ever since her husband, Donald Trump was sworn in as the President of USA. Be it her sky blue, double-faced cashmere jacket from Ralph Lauren or the more recent black, sequined suit by Michael Kors, she continues to set fashion goals.

On her 47th birthday today, we raise a toast to her sartorial choices. Our fashion frat, too, gives Melania’s style a thumbs up. “She is one of the most stunning First Ladies ever around the world. She has been wearing her clothes quite well. The way she dresses up reminds me of the powerful Robin Wright from the House of Cards. Melania’s style is pretty cool,” says designer Nikhil Mehra. On being asked how he would like to dress her up, Mehra says, “I’d make a bandhgala, but in a more feminine manner, with well-fitted, slim-cut trousers. The bandhgala would have interesting coin buttons. I might even put a slight drape just to layer it.”
