Everything to Know About Trump Scandals This Week

President Donald Trump’s son-in-law, Jared “Got Dem Visas” Kushner, wanted to have a burner phone in the White House that was directly connected to Russia; the White House communications director has resigned; and someone tweeted some fake-ass message from Trump’s presidential Twitter account—you know, the one he doesn’t use—to condemn the terrorist attacks in Portland, Ore.

During the better part of the president’s trip overseas, the scuttlebutt in Washington, D.C.., focused on reports about a meeting between a Russian banker, Sergey N. Gorkov—who is reportedly a “close associate” of Russian President Vladimir Putin, according to the New York Times—and Kushner in mid-December.


The meeting came after a meeting Kushner had earlier in December with Russian Ambassador to the U.S. Sergey I. Kislyak at Trump Tower in New York City, where they reportedly discussed establishing a direct connection between the administration and the Russian president, who is also Trump’s play cousin. Kushner proposed a secret channel because, you know, we fucks with Russia tough. Former national security adviser—and the man who is currently refusing to speak with anyone about his Russian ties—Michael Flynn was also present during Kushner’s reported talks with Kislyak because Kislyak and Flynn go back like Cadillac seats.

And while no one knows exactly what Kushner does, we do know that his sister is out here pushing them visas and his Russian-sauced ass is going to have to explain whatever happened at those meetings in December, even if we already know.

White House Communications Director Mike Dubke, who was hired in March to help relieve White House Press Secretary Sean “Spicy Facts” Spicer of some of his daily duties, has already given his job the deuces. After only three months on the job, Dubke resigned, citing that this orange motherfucker clearly has dementia, making it impossible to cover for his orange ass personal reasons for his departure.


“The reasons for my departure are personal,” BBC News reports. “But it has been my great honor to serve President Trump and this administration. It has also been my distinct pleasure to work side-by-side, day-by-day with the staff of the communications and press departments. This White House is filled with some of the finest and hardest working men and women in the American Government.”

It was reported that Spicer will go back to doing both jobs but will limit his press conferences, which sucks for all of us.


The president was called out by everyone, including CBS News anchor Dan Rather, for not addressing the white supremacist attack—aka American terrorist attack, aka terrorist attack—on three Portland, Ore., men Friday. Ricky John Best, Taliesin Myrddin Namkai-Meche and Micah David-Cole Fletcher were attempting to stop Jeremy Joseph Christian from spewing hate-filled vitriol toward two Muslim girls when Christian, who has ties to white supremacist organizations, attacked the men with a knife. Best and Namkai-Meche were killed, and Fletcher was hospitalized with serious injuries.


Now, we all know that when President Twitter Fingers wants to say something, he tweets from the @realDonaldTrump account. But over the weekend, according to HuffPost, the president was firing off tweets from his personal account, blasting the “fake news” media and congratulating Montana WWE congressional winner Greg Gianforte—who body-slammed a reporter who asked him questions he didn’t feel like answering—but refused to address the Portland attack. Then, all of a sudden, as if one of his minions had the pass code to his little-used presidential Twitter account—which they absolutely have access to—a banal tweet about Portland appeared Monday:


The president’s personal account has almost twice the Twitter followers his presidential account has, but clearly the president was too busy worrying about the “fake news” to send condolences to the families of American heroes.

It’s becoming too easy to hate this fucking guy.
