    Would it shock you that only six weeks after the election, now we see the texts, and it turns out he was lying, and totally did that s***?
    Nope, wouldn’t surprise me at all.

    Trump and Co. has to be the stupidest crook ever. What's odd to me is that it has taken so long investigate him. His business practices have been dirty for years and now it's finally starting to unravel. This is why I will never understand Trump's appeal. I mostly remembered him for his philandering and all the publicity in the scandal sheets like the Enquirer when he was cheating on Ivana with Marla Maples. In fact he seemed to enjoy the publicity because I suppose it made him look like a player.

    It was posted just the other day here how he has undocumented workers at his Bedminster golf club and it's not the first time. Going back to his Trump Tower project, he used what was called the Polish Brigade which consisted of 200 undocumented Polish workers to work on the demolition of the building on the lot that Trump bought.. Even though he claims to never settle with these law suits, he settled that one quiety after it dragged out for about 10 years. The NYTimes only recently got the a ruling to unseal the records on that case.

    We have the even more recent Trump Foundation ruling. Once a crook always a crook. All his money doesn't wipe the stink off of that.

    On the topic of Marla Maples she was going to release a memoir back in 2000 yet by 2002 "The author and publisher by mutual consent have agreed not to publish the book."

    Whilst this very well could be a buisness decision (low seller?), incompetence and/or laziness I've got a feeling Trump leant on someone to keep it quiet. The mans so image focused the idea of an ex writing a tell all book woyld rankle immensely.

    I suspect few, if anyone cared to investigate Trump while he was still just a public citizen and was popular with the masses thanks to The Apprentice. Maybe if he never went into politics, Trump would still be Teflon, now shit is sticking to him like he's Velcro. To which I say....WOMP WOMP!

    On this date in 2014, 2015, 2016, as well as 2017, “Crazy/Stupid Republican of the Day posted profiles of Tennessee Governor Bill Haslam, who has expressed a desire to pass anti-immigrant laws in his state similar to Arizona’s controversial SB1070, tried to prevent a single Syrian refugee from being resettled into his state, and has signed a myriad of insane bills that have hit his desk from Republicans in the Tennessee state legislature, including ones to legalize firearms being carried in state and local parks (because we need headlines about playgrounds being turned into battlegrounds), prevent sex education teachers from discussing “gateway sexual activities” like touching of the thigh or buttocks, ordering welfare recipients to be drug tested (which proved again to be a failed policy where they only found 1 person out of 812 until a judge overturned the law), and legalizing the use of the electric chair for executions in his state again. Gov. Haslam also spent some time arguing with a federal judge that same-sex marriage should be allowed in his state, filing an appeal because the decision was “frustrating the will of the people of Tennessee”.

    It has been a mostly quiet year for Gov. Haslam, as he has gone into full lame duck mode now that he’s term-limited as governor… and the federal fraud scandal surrounding his family’s trucking company has apparently made him think twice about running for U.S. Senate to replace the retiring Sen. Bob Corker. So this very well will be our last entry about Bill Haslam, who we hope will spend his future trying to hide from federal investigators, and watching his brother’s NFL team, the Cleveland Browns, continue to be the laughing stock of football. As such, we’re going to set retire his profile at this time, we’ll move on to profile a different wacky Republican today instead. (Current crazy/stupid scoreboard is now 712-30, since this was established in July 2014.)



    Everett Corley aka Corley Everett
    Welcome to the 711th original “Crazy/Stupid Republican of the Day” profile, where we’ll be talking about Everett Corley, a four time loser in trying to gain political office, failing to win the GOP nomination for Kentucky’s 3rd Congressional District in the U.S. House of Representatives in 2016, losing in the primary for District 43 of the Kentucky House of Representatives in 2012 and 2014, and losing in the general election for that same seat in the 2018 elections after coming up far short with only 21% of the vote.

    We have must also note in our article that Everett Corley was born Corley Everett, but changed his name a couple years ago for unexplained “family reasons”. Those reasons may or may have not had something to do with the fact that Corley Everett was endorsed by the white supremacist American Freedom Party along side Neo-Nazi candidate Robert Ransdell back in 2014.

    Yes, this will be yet the latest in a long line of CSGOPOTD profiles where we’re going to be reporting on the trend of white nationalists running for major office as members of the Republican Party, so brace yourselves.

    Where do we even begin here… Other than having a Facebook page that frequently defended the Confederacy (including calling a Louisville professor a “damn dirty black bastard” for supporting the removal of Confederate monuments), supporting Donald Trump’s stupid idea for a border wall on the U.S./Mexico border, or sharing the sort white nationalist rhetoric (i.e. lies) about white farmers in Rhodesia being run off by black ones… Everett Corley had other big red flags.

    Let’s just peek at the “campaign themes” that were on Corley’s 2016 campaign website… while it’s not shocking to see a member of the GOP who wants to interpret the 2nd Amendment as having zero restrictions (which is still insane), what’s probably far more heinous to see Corley referring to immigration as “cultural suicide” and that allowing birthright citizenship affects the “cultural integrity” of the United States. That’s not really the sort of views you hear from a Congressman, unless their name is Steve King, y’know?

    Anyway, Corley also called for eliminating the Department of Education and creating “personal accounts” for Social Security, which sounds like he doesn’t understand how it even works.

    But changing his name and pretending like his views weren’t explicitly racist was a harder strategy for Everett Corley to continue while just hoping that no one noticed. Because man, did his past catch up to him in a big way. In 2014, around the time the American Freedom Party was endorsing him, Corley Everett (who is still the same guy) appeared on the Youtube show “The EthnoState” back in 2014 with avowed white nationalist William Johnson, and aired several racial grievances during the hour long broadcast, including (but not limited to):

    • His belief that white voters in western Louisville's Portland neighborhood are "completely surrounded" because of a Democratic plot where "It's a bunch of white liberals and minorities who've conspired together to cut the white working class out of power."
    • His quote about the white nationalist group endorsing him that, “One thing that struck me about the American Freedom Party, if you’re a minority you can belong to all these groups that champion your ethno background but you certainly have very little to do as a European or a Caucasian America."
    • His anecdotal story about black on white bullying in schools (that likely wasn’t happening because conveniently had no names or details to corroborate it).
    • An extended rant about Sen. Mitch McConnell’s marriage to Secretary Elaine Chao:
      "I certainly feel that we should maintain our people and our culture as much as anyone else, and that's a post, and I’m not saying this in a bad way, but that’s a post, shall we say marriage that has not borne any children or anything. That’s simply a marriage of companionship, you understand what I’m saying? I don’t think he’s trying to make a statement about children on that marriage, I just simply think that that’s someone he relates to on an interpersonal relationship. But be that as it may, that primarily is not what I’m, his marriage is not my problem, you know what I’m saying?"


    One the 2014 interview resurfaced, Everett Corley had the balls to try to claim he didn’t understand what kind of show the “EthnoState” was, or what Johnson’s aims were (which, it’s pretty easy to call bulls***, considering the interview’s content):
    "If I made any mistake it wasn't doing my homework. I engaged in some hyperbole, but that was all due to my anger over redistricting. If he said he was a racist, a neo-Nazi or a member of the Klan, I would have hung up."
    Now, there was only one part of the interview that really damned Everett Corley in the eyes of the Kentucky GOP, and that was that he and Johnson discussed the marriage between Mitch McConnell and Elaine Chao. Up until that point, mind you, they had nothing to say about all the white nationalist things he was up to. Speaking ill of McConnell or his wife is as close to political suicide as a Republican can make in Kentucky, in any event, so even though he’s only 51, we’re thinking that he might give up on trying to win political office and just spend his weekends out at cross burnings to pass the time instead. We’ll just hope that he remains oh-fer on reaching office.
