June 22, 2018: Multiple Topics Covered in Ari Melber's The Beat Segment
In case you missed it: check out the segment Avenatti: Trump's Problem Is Cohen Was an Evidence 'Hoarder' from Ari Melber's June 22, 2018 broadcast of The Beat in which The National Enquirer and Donald Trump's control of it figured into his 2016 campaign and his obsession with the health of Hillary Clinton. Or I should say, with Trump's obsession with promoting false assertions and gossip concerning Clinton's health.
As you know, Mr. Trump, a friend of the gossip rag's publisher David Pecker, provided 'Hillary' stories or read/approved them before they were published--quite a cozy arrangement for a political candidate. In fact, only two newspapers endorsed Trump and his run for the presidency--The National Enquirer and a KKK publication that promotes--what else?--white supremacy. And as Vox Media senior producer Liz Plank points out, in a way The Enquirer is 'fake news' because (its) stories were "fed by Trump or by Michael Cohen." So we might say that these co-conspirators were in cahoots in order to shove Trump into the White House. Now I get it!
Oh and here's some related news from a couple of days ago: Publisher David Pecker Subpoenaed in Michael Cohen Criminal Probe. Now his testimony should be interesting--although Mr. Pecker won't want to incriminate himself, one supposes. Yet if all this 'probing' is meant to show Trump as a 'kingpin' mobster fella and fake president, I suspect that many of us already knew it, no probing necessary.
Now another interesting topic in Ari's segment linked above is how Trump's former 'fixer' Michael Cohen has hooked up in some way with one of Trump's celebrity opponents, Tom Arnold, whose interviews are always weird and confusing due to his manner of speaking (similar to Trump's absurd style intended to confuse). Arnold is an interesting character astrologically and even his birth data is in question with two versions available for the curious. Both charts show him with a Sun Pisces-Moon Aquarius personality blend and nervous Mercury in very early Aries. Born on March 6, 1959 in Ottumwa, Iowa, a major difference is that one chart shows Jupiter @1Sag44 rising while the other has quirky Uranus @13Leo03 Rx rising. Jupiter is, of course, the actor or entertainer, while Uranus is...well, there's no telling with Mr. Erratic.
So once again, the square aspect between Donald Trump's natal Mercury (news) and Neptune (fake) shows its prominence in his psyche along with the descriptive analysis of Trump's Mercury degree (8 Cancer) by *Adriano Carelli. Here's an excerpt of a previously published quote along with a link to Carelli's full assessment of the degree of Donald Trump's natal Mercury, planet of various forms of communication including gossip and innuendo:
"...he is too cowardly to face people directly, and delights in publishing spicy gossip about them. He usually likes to entrench himself behind the responsibility of others and to hide the hand that flings the stone. A gazetteer more than a journalist, he might have success with the chronique scandaleux and, if the horoscope helps, he may lead a paper with success; otherwise he will stoop to publishing infamous defamation and anonymous letters."

Well, I have to say that if a tabloid such as The National Enquirer can't be described as a mere 'gazette', I don't know what can!
