Blind Trust

Donald Trump has refused to put any of his assets into a blind trust, like every modern president has done. And he still won’t release his tax returns. And he is already conducting business himself with the heads of foreign states that will enrich himself, even though he promised to turn his companies over entirely to his children.

This is what we get when we elect a con man as president.

    Is there any irony in the way he wants Cuba to become more of a Democracy and is happy with Russia being an Totalitarian Nation?

    He will be a “PINO” which is all he wanted to be anyway. His piggy nose in the picture suggests that.

    So basically then, every scurrilous accusation leveled at the Clinton Foundation is actually planned or happening for real at the Trump Foundation. Get ready for a steady diet of news about conflicts of interest and its ramifications for the best interests of the country. And with Repos now in firm control of two (and probably soon, all three) branches of gov’t, I suspect they’ll be just fine with it.

    Beyond all that, he’s still tweeting like a 10-year old, ranting about the press and a rigged election. I’ve heard of sore losers, but a sore winner? Maybe it’s losing the popular vote that sticks in his craw; after all, he poses and ran as a populist, but FDR or even a St. Ronnie he obviously ain’t. Those millions protesting and failing to vote for His Greatness must be punished.

    For your amusement, here’s his latest tweet from just a few hours ago:
    Donald J. Trump ‏@realDonaldTrump – 3h
    Nobody should be allowed to burn the American flag – if they do, there must be consequences – perhaps loss of citizenship or year in jail!

    So…salute the 2nd Amendment, guns for all (except for you darkies). But the 1st? Fuggit, you’re out!

    Don’t laugh, the last time this issue made it to the SCOTUS, in 1989, it only lost by a single vote.
