Liar-In-Chief, Trump, is back to his old blackmailing tricks.
Throughout his career Trump has used the media, and an army of lawyers, to intimidate people he doesn't like. His connections to the National Enquirer is the latest example.
"Morning Joe" TV host Joe Scarborough asserted Friday that three top White House staffers had told him that President Trump could arrange to "spike" a negative story about him in the National Enquirer if Scarborough would call the president and apologize for his negative coverage of Trump.
This is essentially blackmail.
Trump has often spoken of his long-standing personal relationship with David Pecker, the owner of the National Enquirer.
During the 2016 campaign, Trump several times referred to negative stories in the tabloid aimed at his rivals, such as Ben Carson and Ted Cruz.

Lawmakers denounced the tweet. House Speaker Paul Ryan told reporters, "Obviously I don't see that as an appropriate comment... What we're trying to do around here is improve the tone, the civility of the debate. And this obviously doesn't help do that."
Trump continues to use his bullying tactics whenever he feels slighted by someone. The irony of his wife, Melania, dedicating herself to stopping cyber-bullying is thick as a brick.
It hasn't taken Trump long to drag the office of the presidency into his personal swamp. No wonder the world is laughing at our man-baby's nasty twitter habit.
Time for me to walk on down the road...
