The author interviewed Trump himself FFS. Says he spent around 3 hours with him. 

It is critical to note President Trump’s primary objection in this Tweet is regarding access. That will be the talking point the Faithful repeat, ad nauseam. 

As far as denying he ever spoke with the author, who claims to have tapes, President Trump will do (or, have his minions do) what he discovered about the Billy Bush “grab them by the pussy” tape - claim it isn’t not authentic. And, the Faithful will lap it up.

................ Maybe Trump has one of the 3 hidden immunity idols, which he can play at tonight's tribal council to avoid being the 3rd contestant voted off the island in this episode of "SURVIVOR WASHINGTON D.C."!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Michael Wolff is a total loser who made up stories in order to sell this really boring and untruthful book. He used Sloppy Steve Bannon, who cried when he got fired and begged for his job. Now Sloppy Steve has been dumped like a dog by almost everyone. Too bad!

Is it just me, or is Trump trying to use big words in his teets?   

I authorized Zero access to White House (actually turned him down many times) for author of phony book! I never spoke to him for book. Full of lies, misrepresentations and sources that don’t exist.

i was especially impressed by “misrepresentations”.  Maybe there is a lawyer hidden under his bed helping him tweet after all.

Donald Trump Goes Full Fredo

But unlike the Godfather character, the president of the United States is backed by powerful people enabling him.

David Frum

https://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2018/01/donald-trump-goes-full-fredo/549875/

excerpt -

“I can handle things. I’m smart! Not like everybody says, like dumb. I’m smart and I want respect!”

This morning’s presidential Twitter outburst recalls those words of Fredo Corleone’s in one of the most famous scenes from The Godfather series. Trump tweeted that his “two greatest assets have been mental stability and being, like, really smart,” and in a subsequent tweet called himself a “very stable genius.”

Trump may imagine that he’s Michael Corleone, the tough and canny rightful heir—or even Sonny Corleone, the terrifyingly violent but at least powerful heir apparent—but after today he is Fredo forever.

There’s a key difference between film and reality, though: The Corleone family had the awareness and vigilance to exclude Fredo from power. The American political system did not do so well.

It may not be the newsiest—arguably it is the least newsy—but the most important moment in Wolff’s book are words attributed at second or third-hand to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell at the time of Donald Trump’s election. “He will sign anything we put in front of him.”

I don't know about tapes of Trump interviews (I'd guess no), but he apparently has tapes of at least Bannon and Katie Walsh.

 

https://www.axios.com/scoop-wolff-taped-interviews-with-bannon-top-officials-1515111038-da51faf9-3cb4-411f-ad8a-5270635642d4.html

Michael Wolff has tapes to back up quotes in his incendiary book — dozens of hours of them.

Among the sources he taped, I'm told, are Steve Bannon and former White House deputy chief of staff Katie Walsh.

  • So that's going to make it harder for officials to deny embarrassing or revealing quotes attributed to them in "Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House," out Tuesday.
  • In some cases, the officials thought they were talking off the record. But what are they going to do now?
  • Although the White House yesterday portrayed Wolff as a poseur, he spent hours at a time in private areas of the West Wing, including the office of Reince Priebus when he was chief of staff.
  • The White House says Wolff was cleared for access to the West Wing fewer than 20 times.
  • Wolff, a New Yorker, stayed at the Hay Adams Hotel when he came down to D.C., and White House sources frequently crossed Lafayette Park to meet him there.

Part of Wolff's lengthy index entry for Bannon:

1515262264138.png

 

Some reporters and officials are calling the book sloppy, and challenging specific passages.

  • How could Wolff possibly know for sure what Steve Bannon and the late Roger Ailes said at a private dinner?
  • It turns out Wolff hosted the dinner for six at his Manhattan townhouse.

A tweet comes back to bit him...

https://lawandcrime.com/immigration/judge-trolls-trump-cites-tweet-in-blocking-end-to-daca/

Specifically, the judge quoted a September tweet, where Trump said, “Does anybody really want to throw out good, educated and accomplished young people who have jobs, some serving in the military? Really! . . . ”

Judge Alsup then wrote, “For the reasons DACA was instituted, and for the reasons tweeted by President Trump, this order finds that the public interest will be served by DACA’s continuation.” Basically, he’s basing part the court’s ruling against the Trump administration on Trump’s own supposed support for the other side.

Reason I canceled my trip to London is that I am not a big fan of the Obama Administration having sold perhaps the best located and finest embassy in London for “peanuts,” only to build a new one in an off location for 1.2 billion dollars. Bad deal. Wanted me to cut ribbon-NO!

If history is any guide, the claims are likely legitimate. Google Trump mechanics lien, the cites go on for pages. Here's a random one -

https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/elections/2016/06/09/donald-trump-unpaid-bills-republican-president-laswuits/85297274/

Excerpt -

At least 60 lawsuits, along with hundreds of liens, judgments, and other government filings reviewed by the USA TODAY NETWORK, document people who have accused Trump and his businesses of failing to pay them for their work. Among them: a dishwasher in Florida. A glass company in New Jersey. A carpet company. A plumber. Painters. Forty-eight waiters. Dozens of bartenders and other hourly workers at his resorts and clubs, coast to coast. Real estate brokers who sold his properties. And, ironically, several law firms that once represented him in these suits and others.

Trump’s companies have also been cited for 24 violations of the Fair Labor Standards Act since 2005 for failing to pay overtime or minimum wage, according to U.S. Department of Labor data. That includes 21 citations against the defunct Trump Plaza in Atlantic City and three against the also out-of-business Trump Mortgage LLC in New York. Both cases were resolved by the companies agreeing to pay back wages.

The claims have been made.  It is reasonable to believe a contract between the parties exists.  Payments are easy to prove.

If the contractors were paid for their work, this is nothing.

If not, it is another example of President Trump stiffing contractors.

We all know your undying faith in your boy prevents you from commenting negatively.

The article I cited names the companies and the claims they've made.  Do you have anything, other than faith in President Trump, that their claims are baseless?

What makes you think I have concluded that the claims are baseless? You seem to be the one who has drawn conclusions without evidence. Strikes me that it is you who is the one letting your feelings towards Trump drive your conclusions.

Speaking of jumping to conclusions...Do you believe the contractor's claims are legitimate?

Based on history, and I was there, working in the industry for 20 years, I would say probably.

I've been in the industry longer that that and have been an arbiter in similar disputes.

Your question suggests you doubt the veracity and honesty of the claims/claimants. "Are the contractor's claims legitimate?"

How does one secure a mechanic's lien?  Is evidence of a contract required?  Is it cool to file such a thing fraudulently?

You were in the Manhattan commercial real estate industry? Perhaps I know you then. I too have participated in similar disputes.

That there is a contract is a given, that there is a breach is not. These things get very complicated especially when claims for extras are involved as in for overtime payments. I would not just assume that the contractors are angels.
