The White House press secretary’s job is no walk in the park in any presidential administration. But being the press secretary for Donald Trump takes the job to another level. Sean Spicer, the stoic, and devout Catholic was not only functioning in the press secretary job, he was also the White House Communications Director. But according to White House insiders, Trump didn’t like the way Spicer was handling both jobs. So in true Trump fashion, Trump told Spicer Anthony Scaramucci was taking over as White House Communications Director. That appointment was the last straw for Spicer. Spicer told Trump he was stepping down from both roles.
The days when Donald Trump Jr. was an eager member of the Celebrity Apprentice cast are over. Don Jr. and his brother Eric and sister Ivanka sat behind the long table on the set of their father’s reality show and got to meet and berate some of Hollywood’s top celebrities. Viewers could tell the Trump clan was a tight group. Daddy Trump was the driving force, and his children would do whatever Trump wanted. Those family dynamics are still in play today, but now the Trump family is acting in front of a worldwide, politically motivated audience, and it’s not going well.
Throughout his life, Anthony Petrello, often called Tony, has moved from success to success. He was doing genius-level work in mathematics when he was just a teenager. He had an outstanding career as a corporate tax attorney at Baker McKenzie, a major global law firm.

The ever eccentric Elon Musk now has something else to say this time as a forewarning to a technology area he himself is highly invested in. That area would be artificial intelligence where the scientific community is already making heavy strides. Artificial intelligence has already been on display in 3D printers, including one that students at MIT have been working on that can even build a building in 14 hours though it is still well only in prototype phase. But IBM’s Watson AI program isn’t the only big one out there as Musk has been working on AIs of his own through his new Neuralink company.
To paraphrase the old adage, death and taxes are the only two certain things in life. Apparently the law is clear on this issue and you still have to pay taxes even if you’re a famous rapper. This is something that hip hop star DMX is now finding out the hard way after federal prosecutors charged him with tax fraud this past week.
