“I loved my previous life. I had so many things going,” Trump told Reuters in an interview. “This is more work than in my previous life. I thought it would be easier.”
He doesn’t get his daily after lunch pee on a hooker session in the White House because he’s too busy peeing on the American people.
Headline from CNBC:
Trump to NRA: ‘Eight-year Assault’ on gun rights is over
What America needs now is more assholes in orange vests stumbling around the forest with AR-15s blasting anything that moves. And once in a while one of their psychotic children, who has gone undiagnosed as psychotic because their asshole parents are out in the forest blasting shit with their military assault rifle, takes his dad’s or mom’s gun to school and blows a bunch of people away.
After that mentally disturbed radio broadcasters will deny any of it ever happened and liberals are making all of it because they’re gay and want to take everybody’s assault rifle away.

Trump’s Wall May Not Stretch Entire Border, Secretary Kelly Says
That’s not a wall, it’s a funnel!
So the wall, much like the man himself, is kinda a piece of shit.
From CNBC here:
Facebook says some groups tried to use its platform to sway the outcome of the U.S. presidential election.
In a case study of the 2016 presidential election, the company said it found several instances of “information operations,” its term for governments and organizations who attempt to sway political opinion by spreading fake news and other nefarious tactics.
More proof that Facebook is not a platform where people get connected to make everybody feel better about the world and reach some pie in the sky understanding about people who are different from you.
Facebook is a toilet where people live stream murders and run propaganda operations, shitting fake news all over confused people who are too lazy to verify the info they’re munching on.
I think this completely justifies Mark Zuckerberg’s 5th largest in the world fortune — he has really taken us to a special place!!!
From Reuters here:
“For hedge funds, this is an unmitigated benefit as their tax liabilities could drop significantly,” said Robert Willens, an independent tax consultant. “Obviously, they are quite enthusiastic and there may be a few fist bumps along the way.”
A manager whose hedge fund earns $50 million a year, for example, would be paying some $19.8 million in taxes, or 39.6 percent, under the current rules. That could drop to as little as $7.5 million if the rate were cut to 15 percent.
That is going to make America great again for sure!
Feed the hedge funders and we will all do just great because they’re such benevolent and giving people.
Oh, I think I tasted a little bit of vomit after that sentiment.
From Zero Hedge here:
..in what may be his first paid speaking arrangement, Obama will be paid $400,000 to speak at Cantor Fitzgerald’s healthcare conference this September, setting the benchmark for how much an hour of the former president’s time will cost going forward.
Continuing the fantastic Democratic neoliberal/Clinton invented having your cake and eat it too.
Yes you can be a defender of the little people while you get $400k for speaking to Wall Street trading houses!
They’re not buying access or favors — they do it for the fun!
From the Daily Beast here:
Ivanka Trump, daughter and adviser to President Trump, is building a fund for female entrepreneurs, Axios reported Wednesday. “The statistics and results prove that when you invest in women and girls, it benefits both developed and developing economies,” Trump told reporter Mike Allen in Berlin. “Women are an enormous untapped resource, critical to the growth of all countries.” Trump says the fund will provide capital to both small and medium-sizes enterprises run by women around the globe and that the financing will come from various countries and corporations.
Oh yeah, that part in bold, that’s the shit right there.
Now after all the carping that President PumpkinHead did during the election about crooked Hillary and the Clinton Foundation, Ivanka the Terrible is going to rock the same business model?
Lock her up!! Lock her up!!
