Totally agree with @lauferlaw. The consequential news today is #Manafort, yet the networks prefer a play by play of #Omarosa and @realDonaldTrump’s distraction game. @cnn and @msnbc answer to the god of ratings. If they spent more time on journalism, we would be further ahead.
Omarosa is neither a victim, nor a whistle-blower. To suggest her self-centred narrative is comparable to a systematic and sustained attack on the US by a hostile foreign nation is like believing the plot of a pot-boiler you’re reading on a plane about to crash into the ground.
It’s also suspect her revelations are not material to Trump and Russia. It’s almost like she’s been produced by @MarkBurnettTV in an attempt to divert attention from far more consequential events.
Finally, has anyone vetted these tapes, checked the facts or are @nbc and @cnn just accepting her tapes as legitimate? I haven’t followed every turn of her plot line but Isn’t she on @realDonaldTrump’s payroll? Stay awake, your country and your way of life are under attack.

He would never see his son become President, that would have seemed impossible, but he gave his son some advice that may explain @realDonaldTrump's ambition: “Be a killer". Not your typical fatherly advice, but Fred was no ordinary father. 1/5
Fred Trump's fortune was estimated at $1B when he died. That wealth can be traced from meagre earnings from prostitution in Canada to a post-war middle class apartment boom in New York. It began at a brothel in Yukon, Canada. 2/5 cbc.ca/news/canada/tr…
Fred Trump was arrested during a violent Klu Klux Clan rally on Memorial Day, 1927 in New York. @realDonaldTrump denied this was true but the arrest record uncovered by the Washington Post proves him wrong. washingtonpost.com/news/the-fix/w… 3/5

Live special coverage of a possible #NAFTA deal via @CBCNews.
.@CBCKatie Simpson: “Sources say they are close, very close”, “significant progress”, “optimistic”. @CBCNews #NAFTA
Any deal still needs to get approval from @realDonaldTrump and @JustinTrudeau but with the clock counting down to a fixed deadline tied to Mexican President-elect Obrador’s new term, significant pressure to get it done. #NAFTA

<Thread> Here’s PR guy Rob Goldstone revealing details about two important Trump-Russia bookmarks. The Moscow Miss Universe in 2013 and the June 2016 Trump Tower meeting. 1/5
Goldstone worked for Azeri-born pop singer Emin Agalarov. Emin’s father is oligarch Aras Agalorov. They sponsored the Miss Universe in Moscow in 2013 with Trump. They are tied to Putin and Azerbaijan. 2/5
What a year 2013 was for Donald Trump. He was feted in Moscow by the biggest oligarchs and Kremlin insiders. For Trump it was a coronation in more ways than one. 3/5 @traciemac_Bmore narativ.org/2017/10/05/the…

<Thread> Let’s talk about family values. Pence, Pompeo and Carson addressed the anti-LGBTQ Values Voter Summit this weekend. 1/10. nbcnews.com/feature/nbc-ou…
The Summit is hosted by Tony Perkins’ Family Research Council which styles itself as a religious liberty organization though it spends much of its time supporting anti-gay campaigns from Uganda to Russia. The FRC is a dues-paying member of the WCF. 2/10
Perkins’ Family Research Council is a member of the World Congress of Families - a US headquartered organization set up by the Kremlin to foster a global movement against lgbtq rights. @traciemac_Bmore 3/10 narativ.org/2017/09/27/div…

<Thread> I’ve written about Trump-Russia in detail for 2 years. The finding that is hardest to share is Russia’s support for al-Qaida and ISIS. @LincolnsBible takes you through a body of evidence that links the Russian mob to terror groups. 1/6
It sounds conspiratorial, shakes our fundamental beliefs, recasts Russians as terrorists. Rival is one thing but funders of brutal terror groups responsible for the world’s worst tragedies? That was a lot to accept. I first wrote about it last June. 2/6 narativ.org/2017/06/07/an-…
I know it’s hard to fathom. Russia is supposed to be our “ally” in fighting terror but it fits in to Putin’s strategy. There is no better enemy, than an enemy you control. In June, I reported on Putin’s Frankenstein. 3/6 narativ.org/2017/06/23/a-m…
