Trump and Kushner Didn't "Blackmail" Scarborough, Source Says
— Ace

So today's Daily Twitter Convulsion turns out to have been, get this, more bullshit.


A top White House aide never suggested a quid pro quo during a call with Joe Scarborough regarding an upcoming National Enquirer Story, a source told Fox News -- despite Scarborough's claim Friday morning that a Trump adviser recently tried to blackmail him into giving positive coverage of the president....

But a White House source familiar with the matter said Scarborough called senior adviser Jared Kushner, with whom Scarborough has a friendly relationship, to ask about a National Enquirer article slated to run in early June regarding the relationship between Scarborough and Brzezinski, who have since announced their engagement.

Scarborough asked Kushner if there was anything that could be done about the article, the source said, given Trump’s friendship with David Pecker, the chief executive of The Enquirer’s parent company, American Media. Kushner allegedly told Scarborough that the former Republican congressman needed to talk to the president himself about the issue, to which Scarborough replied that Trump was angry at him. The source said Kushner answered: "Well, then maybe you should apologize."

But this is he-said, they-said, right?

Well, Scarborough claimed he had proof the conversation happened as he said-- but MSNBC is saying they won't be releasing that proof.


Here's why I think the evidence will support the Trump/Kushner claim: This NYMag writer, apparently sympathetic to Scarborough, would have the account from Scarborough or someone close to him, and could have seen the emails, if Scarborough wanted to share them.

But notice how... crafty the article gets about specifying who it was who initiated this discussion:


One thing I know about being a writer: If you have the facts, and if those facts support the story you're telling, the easiest (and best) thing to do is to be specific about the facts.

Writing vaguely actually takes more time and mental effort than writing specifically -- assuming you have the facts at hand, and the facts are helpful.

So when I see a writer -- and writers are lazy by nature, as most are -- doing additional work to be vague on an important point, I have to assume that either his source didn't tell him who started the conversation, or was deliberately vague on that point himself, or that he does know who started the conversation, but has chosen to do extra mental work to avoid disclosing this fact.

6 God this all sounds so stupid. "Trump tried to blackmail me!" Blackmail is "Do this or we'll tell the Nat Enq to release the story." This is more like "Please do something so they don't release the story!" "Well Trump is the one that is friends with the editor, so maybe you should contact him and apologize for how you've been behaving, and he might go to bat for you." "Never!"

25 The media have got to realize that the game has changed and that Trump has exactly zero fucks to give about their sensibilites. Don't start none, won't be none. Oh and the useless cunts that make up the increasingly illigitimate GOP have skipped town early. Year's half over and they have produced jack and shit. I can't wait to see what happens in September when these fucksticks have to produce a budget. It's looking more and more like Trump is going to have to start campaigning against a do nothing congress. Unbelieveable.

32 We can now confirm that Enquirer publisher David Pecker has filed a petition in court to change his name. He's always hated the name "David," and he would like to be known as "Steve".

You are 100% correct.

However, there is this as well:

1. You simply don't have the information you need to be clear and those involved won't give it to you.
2. You need to get out the info, however, there is some back story you have been requested to hide or isn't relevant.

/I'm sometimes paid to write things, and avoid these situations. Typically, people tell me things and then add "but you can't say that." So you ignore the point or write around it. BTW, this sucks.

Donnie Duetsch said he was from Queens and called Trump out to the schoolyard. Focus was on "the attack on a strong woman," with Mika providing the psychoanalysis. Joe and Mika have fucked themselves. This focus on themselves will get stale real fast. But they're exposed if they keep up the Trump is a Nut rants. Nowhere to go. I see sagging ratings.

115 "That said, I would love to know what happened that caused Trump to throw them into the street." Joe and Mika gave Trump air time early on because he was entertaining and good for ratings. I'm sure they chuckled off air over his chances. (What the smart set was thinking back then). They turned when he started winning. Joe is no conservative but does the bidding of his MSNBC masters. For over a year, both Joe and Mika have been Bunny Boilers. Joe often gave Trump on air advice because Joe is a masterful politician himself and knows the working class, you see. Then he and Mika just turned nasty.

141 Joe and Mika have been peddling "people on the inside tell us he's going crazy" for months. Mika called for his family to do an intervention. Morning Joe's influence is that it's part of the Echo Chamber. Joe and Mika often get the Talking Points early, and have proven reliable at repeating them over and over with their guests. If echoed enough, these assertions get woven into the Narrative as accepted truth. Which is why Trump had to act.

284 I watch their show and quite like them both. Joe has a jocular quality which Mika lacks. She's wrapped pretty tight, so when she's wrong about something she looks extra stupid for the way she digs in on it. Posted by: Bandersnatch at June like when she uses her snail fork for her dinner fork and won't take the hint from Joe when he keeps kicking her under the table?

285 "hehe. And who was it upthread who pointed out that he calls her "low-IQ" and "Crazy", yet it's the facelift thing that everyone gets all faint-on-the-couchy about?" Mika - I didn't have a face lift! it was chin matter!!!

286 >>>>Joe and Mika gave Trump air time early on because he was entertaining and good for ratings. I'm sure they chuckled off air over his chances. (What the smart set was thinking back then).

I think it goes beyond that. They wanted to do whatever they could to screw around with the Republican nominees to help She Who Must Be President. Nobody expected Trump would actually win.

Now they have to be the most unhinged to earn back their liberal cred.

If he does nothing else, Trump has thoroughly exposed the media for the dim, biased hacks they are.

.Correct.  Remember most of the dems thought Trump would be the easiest opponent for hillary to beat in the General and they all did what they could to help hm win the Primary.

288 I have concluded you can't be intelligent and yet be a Prog scum. I don't know what "Prog scum" means unless you violent people like BLM or the pro-fa terrorists. I cannot describe all progressives as terrorists or scum. I know progressives who are sincere Christians, do a lot of volunteer work and give to charity. One of then is a mechanical engineer-the other is a retired math teacher, so they are very smart. They've just been indoctrinated since they were hippies in the 60's. they're not going to be out in masks busting up people with bike locks.

291 Writing vaguely actually takes more time and mental effort than writing specifically -- assuming you have the facts at hand, and the facts are helpful. So when I see a writer -- and writers are lazy by nature, as most are -- doing additional work to be vague on an important point, I have to assume that either his source didn't tell him who started the conversation, or was deliberately vague on that point himself, or that he does know who started the conversation, but has chosen to do extra mental work to avoid disclosing this fact. This is why I like this place. There are certain things that bother me about MSM articles, ace pinpoints it out.

295 Joe ain't all that bright, I suspect Trump son-in-law has enough evidence to bury Joe in the lyen media plantation. Fact he never spoke to Trump at all, if were Trump I'd sue that screaming fish monger. Wonder what the story is about that the inquire is putting out?

Posted by: Rose at June 30, 2017 01:21 PM (3N8PC)

296 262 I think he thought he could take Trump one on one. He is a damn good debater. But Trump came at him with retard strength debating skills, arms and other shit flailing from every direction, and Cruz never knew what hit him. Posted by: JackStraw at June 30, 2017 05:51 PM (/tuJf) Well, Joe Biden proved that derisive laughter can be a winning debate tactic.

298 131 I truly believe Trump just throws these little grenades out there when it suits him to create a distraction, while he's working on serious stuff. He plays them and it always, always succeeds.

I'm with you. I do not want to fast for five days.

That is just crazy talk.

301 Posted by: Deplorable Ian Galt at June 30, 2017 06:46 PM (8iiMU) I think people can do it, but I think you need to be carefully supervised. People undertake long fasts for religious reasons, but it seems to me folks on the gains thread are talking about exercising during that kind of fasting which doesn't sound like a good idea.

Posted by: FenelonSpoke at June 30, 2017 01:48 PM (soOgU)

302 Posted by: FenelonSpoke at June 30, 2017 06:48 PM (soOgU)

I agree.
Fasting for that long takes a good bit of mental discipline.
I don't wish to test mine in that manner at this time.



Posted by: Deplorable Ian Galt at June 30, 2017 01:53 PM (8iiMU)

303 Somebody tell Kuchner that when a shitweasel enemy of your Father-in-Law asks you to do him a favor, the appropriate response is... "Hello? Hello? I can't hear you. Oh well. CLICK" If your F-I-L is POTUS, and you work for him, and it is a media shitweasel, the appropriate response is... "CLICK". Is this so hard?

305 Should Mika get her knees done? Because they're pretty fugly.

306 I have to start at a new church on Sunday. Doing heavy duty fasting and passing out in the pulpit sounds like a really bad idea. It would make for a memorable experience for them, but.....no.

Posted by: FenelonSpoke at June 30, 2017 01:56 PM (soOgU)

307 Yeah, no. Guess I'll hang out here for awhile. Posted by: rickl at June 30, 2017 06:21 PM (sdi6R) Yeah I just dropped one about Fat Batman and chicken legs and ran.

308 Yup...what happened while the media was playing high school soap opera? Well Kate's Law passed...and the travel ban went into effect. If Trump is able to tweet it through the Senate I will become a believer.

309 I wondered whether all this fasting would adversely impact cookbook sales.

310 I do not want to fast for five days. Posted by: FenelonSpoke at June 30, 2017 06:44 PM (soOgU) I guess beer and peanut M&M's are a no-no?

312 Read a little bit about the statement the 'Catholic Bishops Conference of England and Wales issued about the Baby Gard case. It doesn't sound like they are making a definite statement one way or another.

314 I think the family should ask for religious asylum if they are indeed Christians.

316 The family has apparently organized the means and money to get their child transferred. The government should *not*, at this point, do anything to prevent them from taking their child.

It's an entirely different situation (and much more complex, morally) if the family was looking to the State to cover the cost.

318 257 There is a Italian word for knick-knacks but its slipping my mind now. Posted by: Skip at June 30, 2017 05:51 PM (Ot7+c In Hobbit, it's "Mathom", which basically means "dust collector", IIRC.

319 "Oh, you need a favor from someone I know who's mad at you? Well, I'd suggest apologizing to him, then."

That's what this all comes down to, huh? That's not blackmail! That's just good advice.

You know, I remember back in 2012, Psycho Joe put out a tweet scolding ordinary conservative nobodies like me for making fun of the President. There was some sort of hashtag going, maybe #ObamaMovies or something like that. He said something like, "Limit your commentary to legitimate, serious discussions of policy", like he had some kind of authority or something.

I replied to him with something like, "Aww, you gonna dime us out to Obama's #TruthTeam now?"

He didn't respond. And recently, he's spent the last several months slamming President Trump just as harshly as I ever criticized the Dogeater-In-Chief. And at least I could be funny about it!

Morning Schmoe demanding that ordinary conservative nobodies stop making fun of The Great Obama told me all I needed to know about this fake conservative on a fake news network. And his recent griping about President Trump has only served to reinforce that.

Eat a balls, Joe.
