America Learns More About Tareq and Michaele Salahig

Who are these people

I wanted to give my readers an update. It’s been a bizarre Thanksgiving. I have been receiving calls and emails, and giving information to various news outlets all day today. A recent Fox News article linked to my blog post about the Salahi’s, and I was asked to be on Good Morning America tomorrow morning, but didn’t want to do it.  Some people suggested it would be a great opportunity for my website, but  I’m not trying to get my 15 minutes of fame. I hope that at some point I’ll be asked to be on Good Morning America for something much more positive.

Additionally, I have seen how litigious Tareq and Michaele Salahi can be and quite frankly don’t have the time or money to deal with a lawsuit. I have seen over the years that when faced with an obstacle, the Salahi’s default reaction is to threaten a lawsuit. It’s their M.O. in my opinion. You can see from this CNN story how litigious they are. I mean how many people sue their own mother? Or the Washington Redskins? Of course, how many people would try to crash a State Dinner at the White House? It goes to show the sense of entitlement and delusions of grandeur they seem to have.

I have also heard that Bravo had their reality camera’s filming the Salahi’s at the White House. Taxpayers pay for the White House with hard-earned money, and to have Bravo and the Salahi’s disrespect President and Mrs. Obama and to use the property for their own monetary gain is beyond outrageous! What bothers me is how many people have commented on Michaele’s Facebook page congratulating her for crashing the White House. Have people lost their ever-loving minds? This was completely inappropriate behavior. It was a State Dinner at the White House– not the Oscars. That’s probably all I should say. Again, I’m not trying to get sued. Bravo still has a casting tape of me, and I did sign some contracts with them.

P.S. I have added some details on the Salahi’s, NY State Assemblyman Greg Ball who is running for the Senate.
