Trump Campaign Accuses Harris of ‘$91.5M Heist’ of Biden’s War Chest

Kevin Mohatt/Reuters

Donald Trump ’s campaign filed a complaint with the Federal Election Commission on Tuesday arguing that funds raised for Joe Biden ’s re-election campaign cannot legally be transferred to Kamala Harris .

The complaint filed by David Warrington, the Trump campaign’s general counsel, comes after the president dropped out of the race Sunday and endorsed his vice president to become the Democratic nominee. Harris moved fast to get her election bid up and running, taking control of Biden’s campaign accounts and claiming to already have the support of enough delegates to seal the nomination.

“Kamala Harris is seeking to perpetrate a $91.5 million dollar heist of Joe Biden’s leftover campaign cash—a brazen money grab that would constitute the single largest excessive contribution and biggest violation in the history of the Federal Election Campaign Act of 1971, as amended,” Warrington wrote in the FEC complaint, according to The New York Times .

Donald Trump repeatedly used the n-word in response to his car being damaged in the early 1970s, his nephew reportedly writes in a new memoir.

Fred C. Trump III recounts the incident at his grandparents’ house in Queens in his book All in the Family: The Trumps and How We Got This Way, according to The Guardian . “‘N—s,’ I recall him saying disgustedly. ‘Look what the n—s did,’” Fred reportedly quotes his uncle as saying.

Trump III writes that the episode took place when his uncle arrived at the house on what was an otherwise “normal afternoon for preteen me,” according to the report. “Donald was pissed,” he writes. “Boy, was he pissed.”

Why Is ‘House of the Dragon’ Afraid of Violent Women?

Photo Illustration by Thomas Levinson/The Daily Beast/Getty/HBO

I remember the exact moment Game of Thrones sucked me in. In Season 1, Episode 4, Catelyn Stark, played by Michelle Fairley, stood in a tavern surrounded by allies of House Stark. After inadvertently pushing these houses to re-pledge their allegiance to House Stark, she commands them to apprehend Tyrion Lannister. The harsh sounds of unsheathing swords fill the room, and Caetlyn stands tall among men.

This small act of power was captivating, asserting that Catelyn, a woman who despite the environment she lived in, was not afraid to resort to violence if it meant protecting what she held dear. This scene is only eclipsed by the actions of Daenerys Targaryen (played by Emilia Clarke), freeing the Unsullied Army while ordering the brutal and very much deserved deaths of the slavers and their accomplices.

We were not starved for more instances of powerful heroines and antagonists throughout the series. Viewers watched as these women, even if bound by the constraints of the patriarchy, still managed to control their narratives and step into their power as the show progressed. These women were not afraid to use violence to fight for themselves and what they believed in.

Princess Kate and King Charles Got 27,000 Get Well Cards

Karwai Tang/WireImage

It’s nice to know that people are thinking of you when you are sick.

But as any invalid will know, there comes a point when the endless well-wishes can become a tad oppressive. So your sympathy, please, for King Charles and Princess Kate whose offices responded to a staggering 27,000 written messages of good wishes, following their cancer diagnoses.

To put that in some kind of context, Chat GPT reckons that were 27,000 standard sized envelopes laid end to end, they would stretch around Buckingham Palace 14.5 times.

Jack Gruber/USA Today via Reuters

Leaders of the House Republican caucus scolded members on Tuesday after several representatives went off-script to attack Vice President Kamala Harris on the basis of her race and gender, according to multiple reports.

Rep. Richard Hudson (R-NC), the chair of House National Republican Campaign Committee (NRCC), was one of the leaders who led the closed-door meeting, during which he and others said that attacks on Harris should instead focus on her political record.

He suggested that members avoid phrases such as “DEI pick,” a reference to “diversity, equity and inclusion” programs meant to imply that Harris has only risen to her current level of success due to her race or gender.
