The Time the Indy 500 Almost Canceled Donald Trump

The Time the Indy 500 Almost Canceled Donald TrumpOn the doorstep of a possible presidential campaign, Donald Trump would set the pace for the rest of the field, a role that is now familiar to him. This time, though, the field wouldn’t be other Republican presidential hopefuls but nearly three dozen IndyCar drivers. It was April 2011, and the 95th running of the Indy 500, typically held on the Sunday before Memorial Day, was just weeks away. Hailed by those who know the sport as “the greatest spectacle in racing” and begun in 1911, the contest is a 500-mile race at speeds of well over 200 mph around a 2.5-mile oval track that is so big it could theoretically encircle Yankee Stadium, Churchill Downs, the Rosebowl Stadium, Vatican City and The White House and still have room to spare. It takes place in Speedway, Indiana. (Yes, there is a town…

NY Judges Force Donald and Ivanka Trump to Sit for Deposition in Civil Fraud Case

NY Judges Force Donald and Ivanka Trump to Sit for Deposition in Civil Fraud CaseA New York appellate court dealt Donald Trump another blow Thursday when it ruled that the former president and his daughter must sit for sworn depositions in the New York’s civil fraud investigation into the family business. New York State Attorney General Letitia James subpoenaed Donald and Ivanka Trump back in December, but Trumps’ attorneys argued that the they shouldn’t have to because, they said, James’ whole investigation was baseless and politically motivated. Arthur Engoron, the lower court judge handling the case, disagreed, writing in his decision that there was actually “copious evidence” that the Trumps might have committed fraud and no evidence that James’ probe was motivated by an improper political bias.  In Thursday’s ruling, four appellate judges from the New York Supreme Court’s First Department agreed with Engoron’s assessment, writing that the Trumps presented no evidence of politically motivated…

Trump Was ‘Shaken’ After 2019 El Paso Shooting, Asked: ‘What Are We Going to Do About Assault …Saul Loeb/AFP, Getty Images Former President Donald Trump was reportedly “shaken” after a 2019 massacre at an El Paso Walmart, and asked a chief advisor,”What are we going to do about assault rifles?” The New York Times noted the country’s 45th president was also disturbed by the 2018 shooting in Parkland, Florida, at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.

The Times reported: Unbeknownst to the public, however, Mr. Trump again pushed inside the White House for significant new gun-control measures more than a year later, after a pair of gruesome shooting sprees that unfolded over 13 hours.

Can Trump Power a Carpetbagger to Victory?

Can Trump Power a Carpetbagger to Victory?MORGANTOWN, West Virginia—Eight days before a Republican-primary election that could end his political career, Representative David McKinley stood on the sunny banks of the Monongahela River and stared into a tank filled with brown sewage. A fetid stench—something like a mix of sulfur and diapers—befouled the crisp Appalachian air.McKinley, battling Representative Alex Mooney, a fellow GOP lawmaker backed by Donald Trump, in his bid for his seventh term in Congress, was touring a wastewater-treatment plant and promoting his vote for an infrastructure law that could prove to be either his savior or his doom. The weather was lovely, and the mood was light. “Now you know where Yoo-hoo is made,” a plant executive whispered to me as we took in the scum, repeating a joke he had heard from one of his managers.The metaphor conjured up by a congressman standing on the precipice of…
