Barstool’s Dave Portnoy Exposes AOC’s Fundraising Scheme

Published

on

BLP previously reported on Barstool Sports President Dave Portnoy’s recent spat with numerous leftist activists on Twitter.

Portnoy gained controversy for criticizing his competitor The Ringer’s decision to unionize their staff. This drew a wave of Twitter outrage where left-wing journalists tried to sow discontent within Barstool Sports’ ranks and pressure Barstool workers into unionizing.

This Twitter squabble then pulled freshman congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez into the fray. In a tweet she stated that Barstool Sports could be sued for its supposedly anti-union actions.

 

However, no concrete action had surfaced that day, although Portnoy did challenge AOC to a debate on union policies.

 

But on Wednesday, August 14,2019, Portnoy revealed that AOC tried to fundraise off of this incident.

In a tweet, he posted two snippets of images coming from AOC’s email in which she attempted to monetize her Twitter squabble with Barstool Sports and its president.

 

 

 

Portnoy saw through AOC’s ruse and exposed her Twitter drama as a way to fundraise.

The president of Barstool Sports said, “For anybody wondering real reason O’CRAZIO Cortez @AOC decided to get involved in something she knows nothing about yesterday it shouldn’t be surprising shes using @barstoolsports as excuse to milk people for donations. She won’t debate me but she won’t shut up about me either.”

Despite not being overtly political, Portnoy demonstrated great poise throughout this encounter with left-wing journalists and the upstart Congresswoman.

He shows the value of never bowing down to online outrage mobs.

The Attorney General on His Way Out?: Trump Mulls Firing Bill Barr, Advisers Trying to Dissuade Him

Trump is unhappy about more than just Barr’s recent voter fraud comments.

Published

on

President Donald Trump is considering firing Attorney General William Barr, with the Washington Post reporting Wednesday evening that Trump “remained livid” at him.

On Tuesday Barr said that the Justice Department did not find evidence of “fraud on a scale that could have effected a different outcome in the election.”

An unnamed senior administration official told the Post that although Trump is upset about Barr’s comments, he’s also unhappy with Barr about other matters, such as his previous lack of action on the FBI’s investigation into the Trump campaign and his handling of John Durham.

The president is pressuring Barr to release the “Durham report,” which could implicate officials in using the investigation to target Trump for political reasons. Trump also sees Barr’s secret appointment of Durham to DOJ special counsel as a “stall tactic.”

AG Barr Reveals John Durham Was Appointed Special Counsel Weeks Before 2020 Election

In the wake of Election Day Attorney General Barr authorized federal prosecutors to “investigate substantial allegations” of voter fraud. But in his comments Tuesday, Barr claimed that “most claims of fraud are very particularized to a particular set of circumstances or actors or conduct.”

“They are not systemic allegations,” said Barr.

Trump may want to fire Barr, but several advisers are trying to persuade him not to, according to the unnamed senior official.

Either way, it’s tough to see how Barr remains attorney general for much longer. If Joe Biden pulls off the steal and gets inaugurated, he will certainly replace Barr with his own AG. And if Trump hangs on for his second and final term, he may very well want to clean house and start afresh.
