Well, let's see what presents Donnie Brasco Trump received today!

Ooooh, look at what the New York State Attorney General wrapped up in a bow for Donnie.

The New York State attorney general’s office filed a scathingly worded lawsuit on Thursday taking aim at the Donald J. Trump Foundation, accusing the charity and the Trump family of sweeping violations of campaign finance laws, self-dealing and illegal coordination with the presidential campaign.

The lawsuit, which seeks to dissolve the foundation and bar President Trump and three of his children from serving on nonprofit organizations, was an extraordinary rebuke of a sitting president. The attorney general also sent referral letters to the Internal Revenue Service and the Federal Election Commission for possible further action, adding to Mr. Trump’s extensive legal challenges.

Poor Donnie. Can't pardon himself out of that!

Oh, and what else? Summer Zervos?

The New York Court of Appeals denied an appeal by President Donald Trump Thursday to grant a stay in proceedings in a defamation lawsuit brought by Summer Zervos, a former contestant on the NBC reality show he hosted, “The Apprentice.”

The decision means discovery proceedings will continue in the case against Trump. Zervos is suing him for defamation after he said publicly that she lied during the 2016 election when she spoke publicly about him allegedly sexually assaulting her in 2007.

Zervos is one of several women who accused the president of sexual harassment and assault during the 2016 election. Trump has publicly accused the women of lying about their relationships with him.

Man, New York's legal establishment is really pissing in Donnie's two scoops today.

And what?? More emails showing Donnie is a Putin stooge?

President Donald Trump told G7 leaders that Crimea is Russian because everyone who lives there speaks Russian, according to two diplomatic sources.

Trump made the remarks over dinner last Friday during a discussion on foreign affairs at the G7 summit in Quebec, Canada, one of the diplomats told BuzzFeed News.

It's a not a very happy birthday for Donny. And it's only noon EDT as of this writing.

Oh well. Maybe next year he'll be able to enjoy his birthday in more comfortable surroundings. Leavenworth springs to mind.
