Donald Trump Rumors
Isaac, 24, had also gained attention in the NBA bubble for the 2020 Playoffs. He was the only player refusing to kneel in a demonstration of solidarity after the murder of George Floyd. He even wrote a book titled “Why I Stand” to explain his decision. Appearing in a tour labeled as pro-Trump and encouraging extreme conspiracy theories can be considered part of the book promotion and marketing.
Former New York Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez, once vilified by Donald Trump as a “druggie” and “joke” unworthy of wearing the pinstripes, is now a key part of an investment group seeking to buy the rights to the ex-president’s marquee Washington, D.C., hotel, people familiar with the deal told The Associated Press.
Since the 46-year-old Rodriguez’s playing days ended in 2016, he has focused heavily on investing, including being part of a $1.5 billion deal last year to buy the NBA’s Minnesota Timberwolves. Rodriguez also owns numerous office, retail and residential properties, and stakes in dozens of businesses, including online groceries, private plane sharing, a beer brand, and gym and yoga chains.
The real Junk Bond King, who went to prison, was named Michael Milken. He did giant deals for redwoods. In real time, we were confused. It took a couple of decades to realize how misplaced the fight was between loggers and tree-sitting environmentalists. The real battle was everyone who depended on a swath of California, its water, oxygen, stability and economy versus a financing scheme designed to screw almost everyone. Now Milken a much-emulated investment god, and the nexus of many an NBA billionaire. Everyone from James Corden to Joe Dumars takes the stage at his annual conference. He got one of Trump’s first pardons. His most ardent acolytes are known, approximately, as the private equity industry. (That’s a joke, but not far off—you can draw a line from Milken to a shocking percentage of the industry’s biggest movers.)
According to Rolling Stone, Isaac was “studying Black history and watching Donald Trump’s press conferences” to inform his vaccine stance. (Former President Donald J. Trump was vaccinated in January, but states that he won in the 2020 election have much lower vaccination rates than those that favored President Biden.) On Monday, Isaac disputed the magazine’s characterization of him. “I’m not anti-vax. I’m not anti-medicine. I’m not anti-science. I didn’t come to my current vaccination status by studying Black history or watching Donald Trump press conferences,” Isaac said. “I have nothing but the utmost respect for every health care worker and person in Orlando and all across the world that have worked tirelessly to keep us safe.”
During a rambling two-hour speech in Phoenix, Arizona, on Saturday night, former President Donald Trump bizarrely mused about how basketball player LeBron James could get sex reassignment surgery. Trump speculated that the Los Angeles Lakers star could “get the operation” in order to compete in women’s sports, he said while speaking at the “Rally to Protect Our Elections.”
James identifies as male and has never publicly expressed a desire to undergo gender confirmation surgery. “LeBron James, you can have him,” Trump continued before further mocking the basketball player. “Did you see the basketball ratings that were terrible? They went up after his team was defeated.”
