Judge Merchan blocked Donald Trump from Barron’s graduation?!

Truth : Judge Merchan Has Not Blocked Donald Trump From Barron’s Graduation… Yet

This appears to be yet another example of fake news circulating online, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Juan Merchan Said Trump Could Possibly Attend Graduation

Let me start by simply pointing out that New York Judge Juan Merchan has not ruled on whether Donald Trump can skip the trial to attend Barron Trump’s graduation ceremony.

On Monday, April 15, Judge Merchan said that he received requests from Donald Trump’s attorneys for the former president to miss the trial on May 17, to attend his son’s graduation from the Oxbridge Academy. They also asked for the trial to be adjourned on June 3, as one of Trump’s attorneys wanted to attend their son’s graduation.

Judge Merchan explained that he could not rule at this time, because it would depend on whether the trial was running on schedule. In fact, Judge Merchan said that it’s possible that he might adjourn the case, and allow Donald Trump and his lawyer to attend their sons’ graduation!

If everything is going according to schedule then I’m sure we’ll be able to adjourn for one or both of those days.

But if we’re running behind schedule we will not be able to. It really depends on if we are on time and where we are in the trial.

To be clear – Judge Juan Merchan did not say that Donald Trump is not allowed to attend Barron Trump’s graduation. He has not made that determination yet, and he left open the possibility that he might allow Donald Trump to attend his son’s graduation.

Fact #2 : Donald Trump Did Not Say He Cannot Attend Barron’s Graduation

Even more damning – Donald Trump himself did not say that he won’t be able to attend Barron Trump’s graduation. This was what he posted in his Truth Social post, with the relevant part in bold:

Who will explain for me, to my wonderful son, Barron, who is a GREAT Student at a fantastic School, that his Dad will likely not be allowed to attend his Graduation Ceremony

As you can see – Donald Trump himself only said that he will “likely not be allowed” to attend Barron’s graduation ceremony. He never actually said that Judge Juan Merchan told him he could not attend his son’s graduation.

Later in his Truth Social post, he said that the judged was “preventing me from proudly attending” his son’s graduation. But that was only because Judge Juan Merchan would not rule on the matter yet.

Fact #3 : Donald Trump Not Required To Attend Supreme Court Hearing

Judge Juan Merchan only refused to allow Donald Trump to go to the Supreme Court on April 25 for oral arguments related to his claim of presidential immunity.

That’s because Donald Trump is not required to be present for the oral arguments at the Supreme Court, whereas he is required to attend the New York court for his criminal case, as Judge Merchan pointed out to Trump attorney Todd Blanche:

Your client is a criminal defendant in New York County Supreme Court. He’s required to be here. He is not required to be in the Supreme Court.

As Donald Trump was not required to attend the oral arguments at the Supreme Court, there was no reason for Judge Merchan to grant him another delay.

Fact #4 : Melania Was Allegedly Pregnant During Trump’s Affair

Ironically, this Barron Trump graduation controversy comes at the start of the case that revolved around not one, but two affairs, Donald Trump allegedly had during Melania’s pregnancy, and after she gave birth to Barron Trump, as Ron Filipkowski pointed out:

Trump is crying about supposedly having to miss Barron’s graduation when the state is introducing evidence that he was having an affair with a Playboy model the entire time Melania was pregnant. And that was before Stormy.

While Judge Merchan agreed to allow prosecutors to introduce evidence of that alleged affair with Playboy model Karen McDougal, he blocked “bringing up that the defendant’s wife was pregnant and this went on and even after she gave birth“.

Perhaps it might not be a good idea for Donald Trump to attend his son’s graduation after all, as it could embarrass his son in front of his classmates…

Did Barack Obama’s Mother Pose In Nude Photos?!

Did Barack Obama’s mother, Ann Dunham, pose in nude photos for his “real” father, Frank Marshall Davis?!

Take a look at the viral photos, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Barack Obama’s Mother Posed In Nude Photos!

People are posting photos purportedly of Barack Obama’s mother, when she posed in nude photos, suggesting that the photographer, Frank Marshall Davis, was his real father, and not Barack Obama Sr.!

Stew Peters : Never forget that this “lady’s” son was the first “black” president of the United States. 🇺🇸

Truth : Barack Obama’s Mother Did Not Pose Nude For Men’s Magazines!

This is yet another example of fake news created about former President Barack Obama, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Nude Photos Are Not Of Barack Obama’s Mother

This is really silly, but let me just start by pointing out that Barack Obama’s mother – Stanley Ann Dunham, is not the woman seen in those viral nude photos.

Those nude photos are also not private photos taken by Frank Marshall Davis, because they appeared in the men’s magazine called Exotique!

Fact #2 : Ann Dunham Only Moved To Hawaii In 1960

It is temporally impossible for Ann Dunham to be the woman in those photos, or even be acquainted with Frank Marshall Davis when those photos were taken, because she only moved to Hawaii in 1960.

  • Those viral photos appeared in the men’s magazine called Exotique in 1958. Stanley Ann Dunham was still living in Washington when those photos were published.
  • The Dunham family did not move to Hawaii until the summer of 1960 – two years after those photos were published.
  • The magazine Exotique ceased publication in 1959 – one year before Barack Obama’s mother first stepped foot in Hawaii.

Unless Stanley Ann Dunham had a time machine in the 1960s, it would be impossible for her to travel back in time to pose nude in 1958.

Fact #2 : Posing Nude Isn’t Illegal

Even if Barack Obama’s mother posed nude for men’s magazines, that wouldn’t have been illegal, or wrong.

In fact, former First Lady Melania Trump famously posed nude in the January 2000 edition of GQ magazine, while she was Donald Trump’s girlfriend, Melania Knauss.

Fact #3 : Nude Photos Claim Originated In 2012

I should also point out that these claims about Barack Obama’s mother posing nude for men’s magazines is very old, originating with the 2012 conspiracy movie, Dreams from My Real Father. by conspiracy theorist Joel Gilbert.

Loren Collins did a great job fact checking that very old claim, which you can read here and here.

We may never know who the mystery model is. But the Dunham family didn’t move to Hawaii until the summer of 1960. Unless Ann Dunham had access to a time machine in the 1960s, it simply cannot be her.

Moreover, Joel Gilbert knows this. He found that opera glove photo; it was not circulating the web as an ‘Ann’ photo prior to his videos. He knows it came from Exotique, a magazine that ceased publication in 1959. From WND: “Gilbert found that several of the photos in the collection appeared in a magazine called Exotique, published by pin-up photographer Leonard Burtman, who worked in New York City.”

Thus he knows this picture was published two years before Ann first stepped foot in Hawaii, years before she could have met Frank Marshall Davis. And yet he explicitly claims, multiple times, that the photo was TAKEN at Christmastime 1960. This is not a lie of ignorance or mistake; it is a lie of pure, fully-informed malice.

It is interesting that these old photos and long-debunked claims should resurface in 2024, in the run-up to the 2024 US Presidential Election. Is it because some conservatives believe that Michelle Obama might run for the US Presidency?

Fact #4 : Ann Dunham Would Have Been Underage

Joel Gilbert not only put those photos in his movie, he mailed out more than a million copies to voters in Iowa, Ohio, Nevada, New Hampshire, and Colorado, in an apparent attempt to influence the 2012 US presidential election.

However, Stanley Ann Dunham was born in 1942, and would have been 15 years old – underage, when those photos were originally published in 1958.

If those photos are really of Ann Dunham, it would mean that Joel Gilbert knowingly published child pornography, and illegally distributed them to more than a million people!

Did Maria Elena Boschi Publicly Expose Her Knickers?!

The photo of Italian minister Maria Elena Boschi exposing her underwear during her swearing-in ceremony has gone viral again!

Take a look at the viral photo, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Maria Elena Boschi Exposed Her Knickers During Swearing-In Ceremony!

A photo of Italian minister Maria Elena Boschi exposing her underwear during her swearing-in ceremony keeps going viral on WhatsApp, and social media like Facebook and Twitter!

It’s often accompanied by comments like these :

This is the Italian Minister Maria Elena Boschi signing up for her new government position.

In my humble opinion, it is the wrong choice of shoe colour to wear with that suit in such an important occasion !

The new Italian minister, Maria Elena Boschi signing up for her new government.
In G-string we stand. Lol

Gotta love the Italians. Italian Minister Maria Elena Boschi signing up for her new government position. Some might argue for a different choice of shoe color, but that would be quibbling.

 

Truth : Maria Elena Boschi Did NOT Expose Her Knickers At All!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created and shared by misogynists who cannot stand a woman in power, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Maria Elena Boschi Was Sworn In On 22 February 2014

First, let me just point out that the viral photo isn’t new, even though it just went viral again in 2022.

The photo first went viral in February 2014, after Maria Elena Boschi was sworn into office as the Minister for Constitutional Reform.

Since then, it has repeatedly gone viral again and again over the years, each time with people claiming that she was “just” sworn into office. No, that happened in 2014.

Fact #2 : Maria Elena Boschi Did Not Expose Her Knickers

The viral photo was edited from the original photo taken during Maria Elena Boschi’s 2014 swearing-in ceremony. Here is a comparison I created of the original photo (left), and the edited photo (right).

Fact #3 : Maria Elena Boschi Faced Sexist Remarks

The photoshopped thong photo was not the only misogynist insult Maria Elena Boschi had to put up with. She was mocked for wearing the electric blue trouser suit:

Italian newspaper, Cormier della Sera described the suit as having a colour “unknown in nature”, while La Stampa said that it resembled something that might be worn by “a Marvel superhero like Captain America”.

La Stampa also criticised her trousers, saying that they were so tight that “many were reminded of Pippa Middleton’s silhouette” when she bent over to sign her name.

In 2016, Il Fatto Quotidiano would publish a sexist cartoon of Boschi on its front page, showing her thighs prominently, with headlines that played on the Italian word for “thighs” – cosce.

The Italian media appeared to be focused on how she looked, and not so much on her credentials – she was a lawyer, a member of the Chamber of Deputies since 2013, and a minister who pushed through a complicated series of reforms to the Italian Senate.

Fortunately, she has her supporters who call her by her acronym, MEB.

Fact #4 : Viral Photo Also Used To Mock Melania Trump

Oddly enough, the same photo was used to mock Melania Trump, when she was still the US First Lady, with comments like these:

This is YALL’S FIRST LADY!!! AND THEY GOT THE NERVE TO TALK ABOUT FIRST LADY MICHELLE OBAMA wearing sleeveless dresses??? #melaniatrump #pornstar

Needless to say – that was not Melania Trump. Regardless of how we feel about her, it is still misogynistic.
