This is more than a story about a lying politician, my site is full of those kind of stories. This is a story about a powerful man who uses his power to bully others.
A post on Jan. 27th told the story of Cheri Jacobus, a political consultant who was approached by an old friend to join the nascent Donald Trump campaign. Earlier that day, Trump’s campaign manager told Joe Scarborough that Ms. Jacobus had begged him for a job. Trump tweeted out the lie after Jacobus appeared on Don Lemon’s program on CNN Tuesday evening.
Because of her political opposition to Trump, since that first story today Cheri Jacobus’ twitter feed, has been barraged with tweets from Trump supporters that were nothing short of vile. Many of them accused her of begging Trump for a job and turning on him because she was rejected. That is a falsehood that I confirmed on Wednesday morning?
Today I had the chance to speak to Jim Dornan on the phone. Dornan is Jacobus’ “old friend” who was reported in the Jan 27th article as asking her to join the Trump effort. I had sent Dornan an email with Facebook conversations he had with Jacobus. They had been sent to my by the political consultant and I asked him to verify their truth.
