Linda McMahon
Yesterday, Linda McMahon and the WWE, the Linda and Vince McMahon entertainment conglomerate, were arguing over where a $5 million donation to Donald Trump's foundation came from, that $5 million being at issue because of The Donald's bizarre birther $5 million pledge.

Looks like they found the culprit for the big donation.

Vince McMahon stepped forward Thursday as the top donor to the Donald J. Trump Foundation, with a spokesman for the wrestling impresario’s company telling Hearst Newspapers that the WWE chief executive gave $5 million to the charity. [...]

WWE previously said that the Vincent and Linda McMahon Family Foundation gave the $5 million to Trump, who has long questioned Obama’s citizenship and eligibility to run for president.

Goal Thermometer
See, it's not from WWE, or the family foundation, where Linda McMahon makes the decisions. No, the story now is that Vince came up with this one all on his own. Sounds like he's going to have to look out for more groin kicks coming his way.

See, this is particularly problematic for the missus right now, because her election in blue Connecticut is hinging on her ability to tie herself to Obama. Being tied instead to the birther-in-chief is going to make that kind of difficult.

Let's just end McMahon's political ambitions here and now.

Please send Chris Murphy $3 on ActBlue.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
