After Prompt From TV Personality, Trump Threatens to Abandon Puerto Rico
What a fucking piece of shit Trump is and those who let him act like a piece of shit because they’re getting a tax cut out of it are just as ill pieces of shit.
This corruption between Trump and Wall Street and corporate America is sickening — where are the philanthropic billionaires.
Where’s Zuckerberg trying to connect the world? Oh yeah, he’s taking a fucking virtual tour of Puerto Rico to show off his new product.
Those people who loathe Trump (and he should be loathed deeply at this point) should turn their anger and loathing to those powerful people in our society that just stand by and let him do whatever he wants to say or do.
Headline from CBS News:
“Confidence in our country is back,” Trump says as he promotes tax reform plan
If you mean confidence that President OrangePrick is going to blow up the world and everybody in it, well that confidence has skyrocketed for sure.
Otherwise, shoot me.
U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said on Sunday he does not regret using a government plane to travel to Kentucky in August with his wife to view the solar eclipse and speak to business leaders, calling it “completely justifiable.”
“It was approved by the White House and there were reasons why we needed to use that plane that are completely justifiable,” he said on NBC’s “Meet the Press” program.
Readers should take note that while Mnuchin says his government plane use is completely justifiable, he doesn’t give the reason why it was necessary.
If it’s justifiable, motherfucker, then get on it and justify it bitch.
Otherwise head back to your lady’s muffin which has contributed so much to society.
“Tonight concludes Yom Kippur, the holiest day of the year for Jews when we reflect on the past year and ask forgiveness for our mistakes,” he wrote Saturday night. “For those I hurt this year, I ask forgiveness and I will try to be better.”
Zuckerberg continued, “For the ways my work was used to divide people rather than bring us together, I ask forgiveness and I will work to do better. May we all be better in the year ahead, and may you all be inscribed in the book of life.”
I’m sure Zuckerberg will try to do better but what he leaves out here is that he will try within the constraints of his legal obligations to his shareholders (including himself) and he will try do better while trying to make as much money as he can for himself and his fellow shareholders.
Which is in my opinion not going to end up being a very heartfelt effort.
From the Daily Beast here:
A class action lawsuit filed in Maryland State Court this morning alleges that Westminster Management, a company owned by President Donald Trump’s son-in-law and top adviser, charged its tenants improper fees, and then used their failure to pay those fees as a basis to threaten them with eviction.
“Westminster is preying on poor and working class people, by extorting what may sound like small fees but is real money when you’re living paycheck to paycheck,” said Andrew Freeman, an attorney at the firm Brown, Goldstein & Levy, which is representing two plaintiffs who allege that Kushner’s company charged them unlawful fees.
This seems like peanuts compared to Treasury Secretary Mnuchin’s house heisting and Trump’s sexual assaults, but it’s good to know that Jared is not out of place amongst the Trump predators.
