Jon Bon Jovi vs. the Cheat

Jon Bon Jovi

Jon Bon Jovi bid on the Buffalo Bills football team in 2014 and would have likely won the bid had it not been for Donald Trump.

Trump also had interest in the team, however, he was not willing to fairly bid on the team so he created and funded a group to run an anti Bon Jovi campaign. The group was called the 12th Man Thunder, they handed out fliers and gathered thousands of names on a petition promoting a “Bon Jovi Free Zone.”

The Trump team also claimed Bon Jovi would move the team out of the country to unfairly put fans against the seasoned rocker.

Mr. Bon Jovi was not awarded the team and nor was Trump. However, it seems the rocker has a higher moral standing than the man who would become the president of the United States – and thats kind of sad.

Larry Flynt publisher of the world famous Hustler Magazine has offered a $10 million bounty to anyone who can provide information that can be used to impeach Donald Trump.    

Flynt pointed to the fraudulent 2016 presidential election that has proven to have been manipulated by the Russians.  The firing of FBI director James Comey was mentioned.  He placed a full page ad in the Washington Post for anyone who could provide evidence that could lead to his “impeachment and removal from office.”

In the ad, Flynt says, “Trump has proven he’s dangerously unfit to exercise the extreme power accrued by our ‘unitary executive.”

It continues, “Impeachment would be a messy, contentious affair, but the alternative –three more years of destabilizing dysfunction – is worse.”
