New York (eTruePolitics) – eTruePolitics offers a fantasy team honoring Donald J. Trump, current Republican presidential candidate. Team captain is Eugene Krapp.
Cleveland (eTruePolitics) – Six weeks before the Republican national convention and already there’s trouble.
Sources close to the Cleveland Cavaliers say Donald Trump got into a shouting match with LeBron James on Tuesday as the team was practicing at the Quicken Loans arena for Wednesday’s game three of the NBA Finals. A spokesman said Trump wanted the arena cleared so he could practice his convention acceptance speech. The Cavs, down two games to none against the Golden State Warriors, weren’t going anywhere.
Uncorroborated accounts had LeBron shouting, “Get off the court, fatso.”
Shortly thereafter, Trump was escorted from the arena by Cavs’ security guards and wasn’t happy about it.
“Never saw a man with a redder face,” said one observer who requested anonymity because he feared for life.
It wasn’t long before Trump exuberantly took to Twitter:
“Loooooser LeBron. That’s what I call him. Loooooser LeBron. Going down just like last year. Choker!”
In a very brief interview, a Trump spokesman defended the current Republican presidential nominee to eTruePolitics: “Personal insults are very hurtful, even to Mr. Trump. No one likes to be called ‘fatso.”
New Orleans (eTruePolitics) – The artistic director of Jazz at Lincoln Center and the world’s best known trumpeter, Wynton Marsalis, wants to be referred to as a ‘horn’ player from now on. And he’s as serious as a Miles Davis solo.
“I have really sensitive ears and just hearing the sound of the word ‘trump’ makes me cringe,” Marsalis said in a press statement.
“He-who-must-not-be-named needs to put a mute on it,” said Marsalis, in an apparent reference to current Republican presidential candidate Donald J. Trump.
The now nearly inevitable Trumpian response tweeted out minutes after the jazz legend’s announcement.
“Shut up Wynton. All New Orleans musicians love me. When I dance the cha-cha-cha they cheer!”
“We all put our Brazilian fighting bottoms on the same way.”
New York (eTruePolitics) – Sources close to Donald Trump say the mogul will fight Ronda Rousey, the former UFC women’s bantamweight champion in a pay-per-view, fund-raising exhibition bout from Las Vegas. Trump, who will fight under the name “The Orangutan,” denied the move was a response to lagging campaign fundraising.
“I’d fight hot chicks for no money,” claimed Trump who confirmed that UFC President Dana White had granted him a waiver to employ a sock full of pennies in his bout against Rousey.
“Ronda may be small but she’s tough and I’m about to turn 70,” Trump said responding to criticism that the rolled pennies constituted an unfair advantage.
Still, the real estate speculator declared himself unafraid of fighting the UFC’s first-ever woman champion.
“We all put our Brazilian fighting bottoms on the same way, one leg at a time,” said the current Republican presidential candidate.
“He looks like a veal sausage,” said an unimpressed Rousey, “and I’m just the girl to grill him.”
New York (eTruePolitics) – Defacto Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump is set to replace the American Eagle with the Eastern Diamondback Rattlesnake, the most venomous snake in the United States, as our national emblem, eTruePolitics has learned.
“Animal after my own heart,” mogul explains in tweet.
