Lawyer On Injuries Suffered By Doc Forced Off United Airlines Flight: Broken Nose, Missing Teeth, Concussion Comments (0)

United, you really should have kept raising the $$$ until someone volunteered to get off that flight. The lost revenue is going to be in the millions, not to even mention the settlement with the doctor, who now is alleged to have suffered a concussion, a broken nose requiring reconstructive surgery (which will be easy to verify when he undergoes it) and two missing teeth.

Chicago cops, just doin' their job.

United Airlines Forcibly Ejects Doctor — To Make Room For Employee Comments (0)

United Airlines(Video still via Audra D. Bridges)

United Airlines overbooked a flight Sunday — something no airline should do, ever, for any reason, considering the technology available — and suddenly decided four of its own employees absolutely needed to be on the plane in order to work a flight the following day.

Not like everyone else on the plane didn't also need to be somewhere, right?

XUA7bj8UXAYlHBraes

United offered passengers a $400, then an $800 deal to get off, but nobody budged. Then, instead of thinking about the consequences, the airline randomly selected four passengers and informed them they had no choice but to leave. All did, but one, who said he is a doctor who needed to see patients the following day.

United's solution? Send two meatheads in to forcibly drag the older man from the flight as passengers recoiled in horror.

Now United has international bad press and a probable lawsuit. Seems like scrapping that other flight — or booking things correctly in the first place? — would've made more sense.

Disgusting video after the jump ...

An Observation Of Jared Kushner Comments (0)

Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump have ZERO experience or expertise in government affairs. Just 2 entitled rich kids.

My impression of Jared Kushner, gleaned from reading of him over the years — and especially in the past six months — is that he's a husk as a businessman, utterly hollow, but utterly convinced he is supremely gifted.

It terrifies me that he has been cast as the voice of reason in the Trump Administration, not to mention his feckless, Stepford Daughter wife, Ivanka.

But my impression seems correct, at least if this former Kushner staffer — the illustrious Elizabeth Spiers — is to be believed. 

Via WaPo:

On my first day of work as the editor in chief of the New York Observer, which had been acquired five years earlier by Jared Kushner, now the son-in-law and senior adviser to President Trump, I inherited an office and a desktop computer, both in fine but used condition. The computer was a recent-model Mac, but when I turned it on, it was inexplicably running Windows. I summoned our beleaguered IT guy to explain, and he informed me that it had belonged to Kushner, who liked the design of Apple products but preferred the Windows OS.

“So he was basically using a $2,500 desktop as a monitor?” I said. The IT guy shrugged.

That's a fairly gossipy example, but also:

Kushner’s claim to business knowledge, beyond admiring Silicon Valley, boils down to his work for his family’s commercial real estate company, which is hardly comparable to a government institution. And if industry dynamics are not transitive across the board, expertise isn’t, either.

On that count, I’m not even sure how to quantify Kushner’s expertise, anyway. Yes, he ran the company — which he inherited, not uncommon in New York’s dynastic, insular real estate world. But he was sure he had the goods. When I worked for him, I wasn’t sure he had a realistic view of his own capabilities since, like his father-in-law, he seemed to view his wealth and its concomitant accoutrements as rewards for his personal success in business, and not something he would have had in any case. To me, he appeared to view his position and net worth as the products of an essentially meritocratic process.

This is not going to end well. Let's all hope, and let's all make sure, it does end. Soon.

Rachel Maddow Seemingly Bombs With Trump Tax-Return Reveal — Did Trump Play Her? Comments (0)

Screen Shot 2017-03-14 at 11.14.09 PMDid Trump — who would be the client! — leak his own return?

Love Rachel Maddow, but when she teased that she had gotten a hold of Donald Trump's tax returns, people expected a lot more than what she actually had.

Maddow, via Trump biographer/investigative journalist David Cay Johnston, had two pages, front and back, of Trump's 2005 1040 form, which revealed he paid $38,435,451 in taxes on income of more than $150 million. Sounds like a lot, but it represented only a 4% payment rather than over 30% it would normally be; The Daily Beast reports the Trumps paid about $31 million in the AMT, a tax Trump wants eliminated.

I am not big on conspiracy theory — at all — and I think people tend to give Trump way too much credit for some of the machinations going on in general. However, he has a history of leaking items to benefit himself, and he also has a history of leaking items to distract.

In this case, because while the returns do raise questions, those questions are above the pay grade of Joe Q. Public, who will think that the guy made a lotta money, paid a lotta taxes and is being persecuted by the publishing of the returns.

In fact, the White House statement on Maddow's action plays the sympathy card:

This has Trump written all over it. Why? Because he doesn't want to talk about Russia and wants to push ahead on denying health care to tens of millions of Americans, many of whom foolishly voted for him and probably therefore deserve to die unaided, but dirty leftists would rather they didn't.
