A Note on Trump: We Are No Longer Entertained

TrumpEarlier today, the candidate currently leading in the polls for the Republican presidential nomination called for a "total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States." That was, of course, Donald Trump. As Jeffrey Goldberg just tweeted, "Donald Trump is now an actual threat to national security. He's providing jihadists ammunition for their campaign to demonize the US."

On the heels of Trump's proposed change for America, we will be changing how we cover him at The Huffington Post. Back in July, we announced our decision to put our coverage of Trump's presidential campaign in our Entertainment section instead of our Politics section. "Our reason is simple," wrote Ryan Grim and Danny Shea. "Trump's campaign is a sideshow."


Donald Trump Wants to Kill the Families of Terrorists

Trump: Kill the families of terroristsRepublican presidential candidate and real estate billionaire, Donald Trump, has had some ludicrous ideas in the past, but his most recent is a real doozy. Following the attacks in San Bernardino, California, Bill O'Reilly sat down with the GOP campaign runner and asked him what he would do to minimize civilian casualties. The Trump's response was to essentially kill the families of terrorists.

The specific quote, as provided by SunTimes is as follows: "You have to take out their families, when you get these terrorists, you have to take out their families. When they say they don't care about their lives, you have to take out their families."


How George Wallace Predicted Donald Trump

George WallaceIf you were meeting Donald Trump for the first time, how long would it take you to discern that he’s a braggart, an exaggerator, a teller of lies, a bluffer, a bully, a cruel beast, a self-promoter and an unreliable narrator?\

How long before you, too, were paging your copy of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders and marveling at the overlap between Trump’s behaviors and the definition of “Narcissistic Personality Disorder,” as writer Maria Konnikova did recently? Trump projects an exaggerated sense of self-importance, displays fantasies of power and brilliance, indicates a belief that he’s special and deserving of admiration, demonstrates a sense of entitlement and lack of empathy and acts in haughty, contemptuous ways—all of which outline the classic narcissist.


President Obama to address nation on Sunday night

Obama to address nationWith concerns about a terror threat in the United States following the attack in San Bernardino, California this week, President Obama will address the nation from the Oval Office Sunday night.

The president will speak Sunday at 8 p.m. eastern time.

The White House released this statement Saturday:

On Sunday, December 6th at 8:00PM EST, President Obama will address the nation from the Oval Office about the steps our government is taking to fulfill his highest priority: keeping the American people safe. The President will provide an update on the ongoing investigation into the tragic attack in San Bernardino. The President will also discuss the broader threat of terrorism, including the nature of the threat, how it has evolved, and how we will defeat it.


Trump picked stock fraud felon as senior adviser

TrumpDonald Trump tapped a man to be a senior business adviser to his real-estate empire even after the man's past involvement in a major Mafia-linked stock fraud scheme had become publicly known, according to Associated Press interviews and a review of court records.

Portions of Trump's relationship with Felix Sater, a convicted felon and government informant, have been previously known. Trump worked with the company where Sater was an executive, Bayrock Group LLC, after it rented office space from the Trump Organization as early as 2003. Sater's criminal history was effectively unknown to the public at the time, because a judge kept the relevant court records secret and Sater altered his name. When Sater's criminal past and Mafia links came to light in 2007, Trump distanced himself from Sater.


CNN denies Trump's demand to donate $5 million, risking debate boycott

CNN denies TrumpCNN will not give in to Donald Trump’s request for the network to donate $5 million to charity to make sure he attends the next GOP debate on Dec. 15.

“We do not pay candidates to appear,” CNN Worldwide President Jeff Zucker said at a Paley Center for Media event Thursday, according to Variety.  On Monday, at a rally in Georgia, Trump threatened to boycott the event unless CNN donated the money to benefit veterans.


GOP lawmaker behind gun control research ban has 'regrets'

Gun control research ban Amid growing pressure to reverse a ban on gun control research, a former Republican lawmaker now says he has regrets about writing the provision blocking studies.

In a letter released Wednesday, former Rep. Jay Dickey (R-Ark.) disavowed his efforts two decades ago to block gun control research.

“Back in [the 1990s], I took part in cutting off gun violence research dollars at the federal level because of what was considered a misapplication of the dollars by the CDC. I have recently expressed my regrets that we didn't continue that research,” Dickey wrote in a letter released Wednesday by House Gun Violence Prevention Task Force Chairman Mike Thompson (D-Calif.).
