Added & Updated Today, So Far

1. Ahead of the Comedy Central Roast of Donald Trump, comedians were given one rule: do NOT talk about Trump's money.…
"One of my jokes was about his casino business failing, and I could feel that hurt coming off of him... I called him a douchebag to his face, and that wasn’t as harsh as saying 'you don’t know how to run a casino.'" - @anthonyjeselnik
During the Comedy Central roast, Trump said his pay for the show was going to charity. It went to HIS charity.

“Trump did say it was for charity, he said it in the press, [and] in the roast himself. But he never said what charity it was for.” - Comedy Central Pres. Kent Alterman
2. A Trump administration official has been barred from serving in government for four years for violating the Hatch Act. An investigation into Lynne Patton was launched after a formal complaint from @CREWcrew.…
The Hatch Act of 1939 bans federal employees from using their position or government property to engage in partisan politics. Patton is among many Trump officials who violated it. Trump defended officials, claiming the Hatch Act violates free speech.
3. Former KGB major Stanislav Levchenko testified before Congress in 1982 that Russia wanted to drive a wedge between the US and Japan, but their plan was failing.

Five years later: Donald Trump. (Post Updated)…

"We live in the era of the masses versus the mob: but people do not recognize the mob as the mob. In the twenty-first century, the mob both wears suits and files them. The mob is tasteful, and presidential, and - worst of all - legal."

- @sarahkendzior, Hiding In Plain Sight
Last April, a book arrived in the mail that would change the course of my COVID quarantine. I remember ordering it, but I can't remember why. Had I seen it mentioned on Twitter? Was I already listening to the Gaslit Nation podcast? I don't remember. The past year has been a blur.
The book answered questions I never thought to ask about Donald Trump and, to my shock and horror, the world we're living in today. Questions like "When did the Russia story really begin?" and "What the hell is a transnational organized crime syndicate?"

THREAD: Live tweeting "The Middle East Crisis Factory: The @iyad_elbaghdadi Interview," the new episode of @gaslitnation podcast with @AndreaChalupa & @sarahkendzior.

"'How badly did you screw up your life that now several nation states want you dead?'"…
Iyad El-Baghdadi is a prominent Palestinian activist and writer. In 2014, he was jailed and expelled from the UAE for his activism and made his new home in Norway. He has been under protection there since 2019, when the CIA revealed that he's a target of the Saudi regime.
.@iyad_elbaghdadi's new book "The Middle East Crisis Factory" covers tyranny, terrorism, and foreign intervention and how these systems of oppression battle and feed off each other. It is about the failures of history, and the reasons for hope.…

Trump Tweets, April 6

Today in 2012, Trump tweeted "@BarackObama's friends are enemies of the US." See, Donald Trump's friends are the greatest, most law-abiding American citizens. ImageImageImageImage
Today in 2013, Trump tweeted that Obama needs to send "blatant threats" and "get very tough" with his later-friend Kim Jong-un. Image
Today in 2015, Trump tweeted that Common Core education is "an attack" on our rights, said Congress must end the Iran nuclear deal, told people to put @HuffPost & @RollingStone out of business, and said "basic scum" journalists should be "weeded out."

Sounds like #CancelCulture. Image

Trump Tweets, April 5th

Today in 2012, Trump tweeted "Oprah will end up doing just fine with her network--she knows how to win. @Oprah

Oprah was his dream running mate for his 2000 campaign.…
Today in 2014, Trump retweeted over a dozen accounts asking him to run for president.

In another tweet, he said he doesn't wear a wig (it's a combover), he's never gone bankrupt (three times, right?), and he's worth "much more" than $3.9 billion (yeah, right).
Today in 2015, Trump retweeted a couple people telling him to announce his candidacy, and he tweeted about Easter...

HBO's #QIntoTheStorm finale is out, and Ron Watkins is identified as Q (at least the 2nd Q). Maybe he is Q, maybe he isn't. But...

For those who didn't watch: OAN used Ron to push election lies. OAN was also involved in Russia's US election interference.

OAN used Ron to pretend to be an expert on voting machines or algorithms or something confusing. Ron used OAN as a platform to be seen as himself rather than disguised as Q.

Roger Stone's social media bro Jason Sullivan helped Ron amplify himself and Q on Twitter, to help Trump.
There's a lot more to know than just what I've mentioned here. If you're considering watching #QIntoTheStorm, don't let the big reveal stop you. The documentary was worthwhile. Even @jimstewartson thinks so, and he was enraged by it the first week.

1. In January 2017, Trump offered to lift sanctions on Russia if they reduced their nuclear stockpile, which has little to no impact on the nuclear danger. A Russian political scientist thinks the idea was Putin's.…
2. In 2017, Andrey Piontkovsky said he thinks Donald Trump's Russian handler is Dimitri Simes, an informal foreign policy adviser to the campaign.

A year later, we learned that Simes set up meetings between US officials and undercover Kremlin agents.…
The name Dimitri Simes, who Piontkovsky pointed to as Trump's then-handler in January 2017, appears 134 times in the redacted version of the Mueller report.
