Published

on

President Donald Trump has donated his salary for the third quarter of 2018 to a federal agency that seeks to research and combat alcoholism in America.

The President donated $100,000 to the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, the division of the U.S National Institute of Health tasked with combatting and preventing alcohol dependency throughout the country.

Unbeknownst to many, Trump, while famously claiming to have never taken a drink in his life, has  somewhat of a tragic life experience involving the disease.

Trump has spoken of watching his older brother, Freddy, struggle throughout his life with alcoholism, dying at the far-too-young age of 43 in 1981 in part because of his condition.

Trump has compared seeing his brother die in what could have been the prime of his life to similar experiences many Americans have had in watching their relatives have their lives ruined by pharmaceutical opioids. Speaking at a October press conference, he described watching his brother’s struggles with alcoholism:

“[Fred] was a great guy, a handsome person. He was the life of the party. He was a fantastic guy, but he got stuck on alcohol. And it had a profound impact and ultimately [he] became an alcoholic and died of alcoholism. He would tell me, ‘Don’t drink ever.’ He understood the problem that he had and that it was a very hard problem.”

Trump pledged to donate his presidential salary as a candidate in 2016, thus far having donated his salary as chief executive to the Department of Veteran’s Affairs and the Department of Education, among other charitable causes.

Biden’s White House Considering Banning Conservative Media from Press Briefings

Briefings could be restricted to mainstream media?

Published

on

President Joe Biden’s press team may move to restrict the briefings held at the White House to liberal mainstream media outlets, if language from the new President’s deputy press secretary if more than just talk.

Organizations or individuals who traffic in conspiracy theories, propaganda and lies to spread disinformation will not be tolerated,” TJ Ducklo, Biden’s deputy press secretary, said in a statement to Politico, “and we’ll work with the WHCA to decide how to handle those instances moving forward.

Given liberal media figures’ extremely wide-ranging definition of “disinformation,” it appears possible to likely that any journalist or reporter who is critical of Biden policies “will not be tolerated” at the White House.

President Trump had accredited journalists from outlets such as Breitbart and One America News Network during his time in office, and Ducklo’s language suggests the press credentials of such organizations may be revoked. Biden himself has chafed over question regarding his son’s corrupt foreign business dealings, calling Fox News’ Peter Doocy a “one horse pony” for daring to ask about an ongoing Department of Justice investigation into Hunter Biden.

The first press briefing of the Biden administration was attended by fourteen mainstream media employees, in a limited-capacity briefing spurred by the coronavirus pandemic. Room service journalists questioned White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki about the color scheme of Air Force One and Biden’s mood on Inauguration Day.

Former Trump administration Press Secretary Sean Spicer described the ‘easy mode’ briefing as “an embarrassment.” Spicer is currently seeking press credentials to attend White House briefings, along with Fox host Eric Bolling.

Expect the remaining “journalists” present for White House press briefings to ask vital questions about dogs, chocolate chip ice cream, and softball slam dunks for the Biden administration.
