Donald Trump Jr. Obliterates Nike Over Decision To Pull Betsy Ross Flag From Shoes

Boom baby!

Say what you will about President Trump and his family, but they certainly do love and respect their country, which is more than can be said for radical liberal activist and failed NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick.

Kaepernick started the whole “taking a knee” garbage that professional athletes have been doing during the National Anthem before sporting events. He’s now back in the news again for making a big stink about the Betsy Ross flag on Nike shoes, which prompted the sneaker manufacturer to remove it promptly.

This decision did not at all sit well with Donald Trump Jr. who lit Nike’s world up over the whole mess.

“The Betsy Ross flag is one type that was flown during the American Revolution,” CNBC reported. “And the shoes were set to be released in celebration of the July Fourth holiday.”

Trump Jr. slammed Nike for its decision and suggested that the company should adopt a communist-style logo that meshed together the hammer-and-sickle from the Soviet Union and Nike’s Swoosh logo.

He tweeted: “If the Betsy Ross Flag, the flag of the American Revolution, is too offensive for Nike to commemorate The 4th of July maybe Nike should go with this… seems to be more in line with their views.”

Trump Jr. is not the only figure on the political Right to slam Nike for its decision.

Texas Republican Senator Ted Cruz tweeted: “It’s a good thing @Nike only wants to sell sneakers to people who hate the American flag…. @NFL #HappyFourth”

Nike has made a poor, poor decision to pull this shoe based on the whining of a self-entitled, ungrateful individual they believe speaks for the majority of American citizens when it comes to social issues.

Kaepernick is definitely not the kind of person Nike should be taking any kind of political advice from, yet here they are, bowing the knee to King Colin instead of doing what they know is right by their customers.

The American flag is a symbol that stands for all we believe in as citizens of this great, though imperfect nation. It’s an embodiment of our principles, principles that people have shed blood and lost their lives to defend.

Kaepernick continues to spit on that legacy and that sacrifice. Shame on you. And shame on Nike.

Bill Gates Reportedly Took Marriage Advice from Jeffrey Epstein

It’s like taking cooking tips from Jeffrey Dahmer.

When it comes to taking advice on your love life, there are very few people in the world today who would suggest that the now-deceased child sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein would be a valuable asset. This would be like asking Keith Richards about his tips for sobriety, or asking Joe Biden for his public speaking tricks.  Yet still, almost unbelievably, it appears as though Bill Gates was seeking out the advice of the aforementioned Epstein at times when the Microsoft founder’s marriage was going awry. Bachelor sex-offender Jeffrey Epstein gave Bill Gates advice on ending his marriage with Melinda after the Microsoft co-founder complained about her during a series of meetings at the money manager’s mansion, according to two people familiar with the situation. Gates used the gatherings at Epstein’s $77 million New York townhouse as an escape from what he told Epstein was a “toxic” marriage, a topic both men found humorous, a person who attended the meetings told The Daily Beast. The billionaire met Epstein dozens of times starting in 2011 and continuing through to 2014 mostly at the financier’s Manhattan home—a substantially higher number than has been previously reported. Their conversations took place years before Bill and Melinda Gates announced this month that they were splitting up. Apparently, this was a two-way street. Gates, in turn, encouraged Epstein to rehabilitate his image in the media following his 2008 guilty plea for soliciting a minor for prostitution, and discussed Epstein becoming involved with the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. The wealthy computing legend and philanthropist is having some trouble with his image of late, as his squeaky-clean, almost nerdy image has been shattered by accusations of extramarital affairs and sleazy behavior after it was announced that he and Melinda were considering a divorce.

Matt Gaetz’s Trouble Intensifies as Pal Pleads Guilty to Sex Trafficking

The Florida Congressman’s buddy is now cooperating with investigators.

Everyday, some scandal befalls Washington DC.  It is a place gone mad at times, where the only real excitement felt by our elected officials comes when they skirt the law and ethics both to enrich themselves at the expense of the American people. But most of these salacious situations are muted; almost blasé at times.  We’re so conditioned to believe that our representatives are dirty that we often forget to bat an eye at their shenanigans. There are some actions, however, that are unforgivable, and there are some scandals that are undeniably different from the routine ruses. Congressman Matt Gaetz how now found himself right smack dab in the middle of such a mess. A Florida politician who emerged as a central figure in the Justice Department’s sex trafficking investigation into Rep. Matt Gaetz pleaded guilty Monday to six federal charges and agreed to cooperate with prosecutors as part of a plea deal. Joel Greenberg, a longtime associate of Gaetz’s, appeared in federal court in Orlando. He pleaded guilty to six of the nearly three dozen charges he faced, including sex trafficking of a minor, and he admitted that he had paid at least one underage girl to have sex with him and other men. And it gets worse for Gaetz still… Gaetz was not mentioned in the plea agreement or during the court hearing. But Greenberg’s cooperation — as a key figure in the investigation and a close ally of Gaetz’s — may escalate the potential legal and political liability that the firebrand Republican congressman is facing. Federal prosecutors are examining whether Gaetz and Greenberg paid underage girls and escorts or offered them gifts in exchange for sex, according to two people familiar with the matter. Investigators have also been looking at whether Gaetz and his associates tried to secure…
