In other news, the Trump campaign has apparently been making tax-exempt payments of dubious legality to employees for using vendors without stating who the vendors are. They could be Trump brand vendors for all we know.

Meanwhile, former Port Authority chairman and Chris Christie appointee David Samson will plead guilty to charges so he doesn't have to testify against his colleagues in the Bridgegate scandal. Falling on your sword for Chris Christie is a fool's errand. He wouldn't do the same for you.

Finally, more sources have come forward detailing a pattern of sexual harassment by Fox News chief Rogers Ailes. This has probably barely scratched the surface.

Another Fox News employee, who also asked to remain anonymous for fear of retaliation, said that Ailes told her that she could only wear dresses on-air. She also described a story that Ailes often tells about how he chooses his on-air talent.

“He always brags to people about how he doesn’t do polling or testing when he chooses his on-air talent. He told me that if he was thinking of hiring a woman, he’d ask himself if he would fuck her, and if he would, then he’d hire her to be on-camera,” the source said. “He then said if it was a man he’d think about whether he could sit down for a baseball game with him and not get annoyed of him. If he could, then he’d hire him.”

So there's that.

    “He then said if it was a man he’d think about whether he could sit down for a baseball game with him and not get annoyed of him. If he could, then he’d hire him.”

    Um, then explain Steve Doocy and Brian Kilmeade.

    So basically Fox News is run by Donald Trump’s doppelganger.

    By the way, I was just watching some of Trump’s latest “speech.” Even by Trump’s standards it was a rambling, incoherent hurricane of word salad. He seemed unable to maintain a single train of thought long enough to even get it fully out of his mouth. It’s all about what he said yesterday about Saddam Hussein and how the press said that he said he loved Hussein (nobody said that) and he went on to nickname Chuck Todd (Sleepy eyes) and attack him for being “disloyal” to Trump despite the fact that Meet the Press got very high ratings while interviewing him.

    And they still won’t pull the cameras off him. Pathetic.

      Trump is an extreme narcissist. He can’t let anything go because it’s a slight against him. He relitigates things

        Apparently he relitigates everything.
