Trump

It’s in the bag… Donald Trump says he needs one more indictment to secure his election.

Georgia will soon deliver the goods, indicting the former president for his role in attempting to overturn the Peach State’s 2020 election.

Trump can’t wait. He’s excited about receiving a PR bonus from Georgia’s law enforcement squad.

Fulton County sheriff Pat Labat expects Trump will have to take a mug shot. "Unless somebody tells me differently, we are following our normal practices, and so it doesn’t matter your status, we’ll have a mugshot ready for you," Labat told WSBTV.

The mug shot would be PR gold for Trump. It would play into his whining about victimhood.

Team Trump will plaster the mug shot all over its never-ending pleas for campaign cash. The mug shot will adorn Trump flags. Even Biden supporters would kick in for a mug shot of Trump.

Labat should think twice about boosting Trump’s campaign.

Hitting those country roads. Trump wants to move the trial for the storming of the Capitol to “an impartial Venue, such as the politically unbiased nearby State of West Virginia!” according to his post on Truth Social.

Trump claims it’s impossible to get a fair trial in Washington because it is “over 95% anti-Trump, & for which I have called for a Federal TAKEOVER in order to bring our Capital back to Greatness,” he posted.

He is limiting himself. West Virginia only gave 68.6 percent of its vote to Trump in the 2020 election. Why not seal the deal and move the trial to the more-friendly confines of Mar-a-Lago?

Trump isn’t exactly winning over potential jurors in DC. He posted that Washington is “filthy, dirty, falling apart and unsafe.”

The fact remains that DC is where Trump’s alleged criminal activity took place. He was also based in DC on that Jan. 6 day when America’s democracy was on the brink.

Trump can always visit West Virginia after he gets out of prison. The good people of the Mountain State will roll out a very deep red carpet for him.

DeSantis scores a mighty win. The Central Florida Tourism Oversight District, which the Florida governor installed to go after Walt Disney Co. has abolished DEI programming.

“The so-called diversity, equity, and inclusion initiatives that were advanced during the tenure of the previous board were illegal and simply Un-American,” said administrator Glenton Gillian. “Our district will no longer participate in any attempt to divide us by race, or advance the notion that we are not created equal.”

The previous board, Reedy Creek Improvement District, of course, used DEI to level the playing field because as George Orwell wrote: “All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others.”

Assuming DeSantis hasn’t banned “Animal Farm” from Florida’s public libraries, Gillian should take out a copy.

Kudos to Apple CEO Tim Cook as the company amasses more than 1B subscribers to its Apple TV+, Apple Music and iCloud. That drove Apple to an all-time high in revenues during the June quarter.

Cook, though, should keep the champagne bottle corked. Apple’s robust 8.2 percent in services growth to $21.2M could not overcome the 4.4 percent profit dip to $60.3M in product (Macs, iPhones, iPads) sales. Apple’s overall revenues fell 1.4 percent to $81.8B.

Apple expects a revenue shortfall in the September period, which would make four straight quarters of revenue drops.

Cook claims Apple’s quarterly June results were strained due to heavy spending on the R&D front, especially in the AI sector.

Wall Street wants to see how Apple applies its AI expects to juice the sales of its high-margin product business.
