And So it Begins

Politics, its dirty.

The Other McCain: So Iíve never been a fan of Trump-as-politician, but what the Daily Beast has done is as distasteful as a protective tariff: Resurrected a two-decade-old claim by Trumpís ex-wife Ivana that he ďrapedĒ her in 1989. This claim was made in their divorce and published in a 1993 book.

So what? When a rich manís wife divorces him, she always accuses him of awful things. Itís a shakedown: ďGive me the money I want or Iíll drag your name through the mud and make an ugly spectacle of it.Ē

Who knows if itís true? And who cares? Ivana got her money and Trump moved on with his life. Itís over. Ancient history.

Ivana released a statement in response to the story.
Update 7/28/15 9:50 AM: Ivana Trump released a statement Tuesday morning to CNN.

"I have recently read some comments attributed to me from nearly 30 years ago at a time of very high tension during my divorce from Donald. The story is totally without merit. Donald and I are the best of friends and together have raised three children that we love and are very proud of. I have nothing but fondness for Donald and wish him the best of luck on his campaign. Incidentally, I think he would make an incredible president."

Another plus for Mr. Trump would be that if he appointed their daughter Ivanka to a top cabinet position.

I mean she'd be smarter than half of DC put together. Not to mention.....

A damn sight more productive than our last female Secretary of State John Kerry.
