My guess is Trump has never followed the law closely before he was President and he probably won’t after he’s President.
Did he think the country and his opponents would accept his level of financial criminality or did he not think about it very carefully about it? We’re probably never going to know the answer to that
And lastly my guess is Trump is just a more extreme example of how the ruling class functions on an ongoing basis.
These laws are for other people to follow!
From Reuters here:
I predict we’re about to see a flood of Trump tears as he portrays himself as a victim of Democratic persecution.
To see Trump pawn off his payoffs for his affairs as simple private transactions has to not be sitting well with the wife.
Maybe she conducted a simple private transaction when she married that specimen.
From the Guardian here:
The sad reality is that Trump has given more of a shit to victims of neoliberalism and globalization than Hillary Clinton and Obama and Bubba Clinton.
Of course they would vehemently deny this but if their lives were decent and their economic futures assured at the same level as Obama’s tech donors we never would have been treated to the Trump.
It is the rotting body in Obama’s Presidential closet that his economic policies brought on Trump. He’s never going to cop to it but it’s true.
Headline from Salon:
Her boss locks immigrant children in cages.
Her boss is all for predatory lending and ill banking practices.
Her boss stokes racial division at every turn.
Her boss treats women poorly.
How could she possibly think that working for such a man would be a good Christian thing to do?
It’s absolutely twisted and insane.
Headline from CNN:
Trump says ‘good time’ for a government shutdown if no money for border wall
It’s also a great time to start praising Putin right before Meuller might release his report.
Or he just lost 30+ seats and control of the House of Represenatives so he totally has the juice to get this wall done as so many Republicans are going out the door.
From CNN here:
Donald Trump just co-opted a new buzz phrase he hopes will define the next two years in politics: “Presidential harassment.”
Oh this is just so fucked in the head. Here we have a man who tortured Obama over his birth certificate over a period of years. He harassed him daily on Twitter with lies, accusations and utter bullshit.
And Republicans in Congress did not torture Obama? They essentially broke rules whenever possible just to fuck with Obama and refused to hold a hearing on his final Supreme Court pick.
This is straight up bullshit. Maybe if these dudes get uncontrollably harassed they would realize what a counterproductive dick move it is.
Fuck Trump bigly and harass his orange ass til the cows come home.
From CNBC here:
Tariffs are having a negative impact for only about 9 percent of companies, earnings calls show
Wall St hates tariffs; most likely because it’s money they’re not getting their grubby hands on.
Wall St. hates higher wages for anybody except themselves — do you like higher wages for yourself normal American?
I know it’s fashionable to hate on the Trump, and he is a truly racist piece of shit and hateful towards women, but in this fight between two giant assholes his shit makes more sense than Wall Street’s argument.
You have to remember that the outsourcing that has spread across corporate America like a venereal disease was brought on by Wall Street’s demands for ever higher profits on a quarterly basis.
So shipping your job overseas was great for Wall Street and now that it looks like it’s going to unravel due to political repercussions that could have been easily foreseen, Wall Street is throwing a fit over tariffs.
How could you have imagined a country emptied of jobs as much as possible retaining any reasonable politics? Hmmm…..Wall Street thought that because they don’t give one flying fuck about anything except corporate profits.
And look what that brought us — Trump and his tariffs. Nice job fellas.
