UPDATE: (Not Altogether) Bad Week for Microsoft’s Meddlesome Hack Reid Hoffman

2nd UPDATE Jan. 27, 2024 evening: 15 Facts About E. Jean Carroll’s Allegations Against Trump the Media Don’t Want You to Know

UPDATE Jan. 27, 2024: Fulfilling what Reid Hoffman felt was a good bet in backing E. Jean Carroll’s lawsuit against Donald Trump for alleged defamation, a New York City jury awarded her $83 million in damages, after what another jury said wasn’t a rape by Trump, which Carroll accused him of. Trump plans to appeal, and posted on his Truth Social account:

Absolutely ridiculous! I fully disagree with both verdicts, and will be appealing this whole Biden Directed Witch Hunt focused on me and the Republican Party. Our Legal System is out of control, and being used as a Political Weapon. They have taken away all First Amendment Rights.

ORIGINAL POST: As we’ve pointed out repeatedly, LinkedIn co-founder and Microsoft director Reid Hoffman keeps lurking in the shadows, directing money (some of it “dark”) here and there to lawfare and presidential primary opposition against certain Republican nominee Donald Trump. He usually does so with his lackey, Dmitri Mehlhorn, out front.

The Isle of Pedophiles visitor‘s litigation initiative is to support the flaccid rape-then-“defamation” lawsuit against the former President by E. Jean Carroll, who claimed Trump raped her in a department store dressing room in the early 1990s. A jury determined that she wasn’t raped, but that she could still claim defamation because he mocked her, so now they’re trying to get to the bottom of that.

The bad news this week for Hoffman and Dmehlhorn is that Carroll has been caught in yet another lie…er, mis-recollection, as Breitbart reports:

The dress that E. Jean Carroll — the woman who has sued former President Donald Trump for defamation for denying her claims that he sexually assaulted her in a Bergdorf Goodman dressing room in the early 1990’s — claims she wore during the alleged attack did not exist at the time, Trump’s lawyer pointed out.


Carroll’s second defamation trial against Trump is underway. Notably, Trump is not facing criminal charges in these cases. Carroll first went public with her story in 2019, posing for a cover of New York Magazine in the Donna Karan blazer dress that she claims she was assaulted in. However, it turns out the dress was not even available the original year that she claimed the attack happened.

The other bad news that landed in Hoffman’s and his Toothorn’s laps this week is that the bazillionaire wasted a couple hundred thousand dollars on Nikki Haley‘s megadonor Hoovering campaign. She lost the New Hampshire primary badly to Trump. Reid never wanted her to become president; He just wanted her to be the easier opponent for his preferred malleable incumbent, President Biden.

Now Hoffhorn says, “No more money for Nikki!”, according to the New York Post:

Former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley will need to demonstrate that there is a “new potential path to victory” over Donald Trump before she gets any more donations from billionaire Reid Hoffman, an adviser for the Democratic megadonor told The Post Thursday.


“Prior to the primaries, we made an investment in Governor Haley because we saw that her performance in New Hampshire might give her a path to defeating Donald Trump,” Hoffman’s political philanthropy adviser Dmitri Mehlhorn explained.


Mehlhorn added that prior to Haley’s 11-point loss in the Granite State contest, he believed the 52-year-old needed to win New Hampshire in order to become the GOP nominee.


“It is still possible that Governor Haley will be able to persuade voters that Trump is no longer stable and cannot carry their banner into the fall campaign,” he said. “Before recommending another investment at this later stage in the process, however, I would need to see a new potential path to victory given that she did not win New Hampshire.”


In December, Hoffman contributed $250,000 to SFA Fund Inc., a pro-Haley super PAC that has spent more than $42 million supporting the former US ambassador to the United Nations’ White House bid.

One of these days Microsoft should explain why they’ve kept this bumbling spendthrift tethered to what should be a serious-minded board of directors for so long.
