I don't think he has a moral framework. It's very interesting: How does somebody grow up without one of those things? If he's going to win, everybody else has to lose, so he has to reverse everything

A BRIEF DISSERTION ON TRUMP’S CORRUPTION:

One place where journalism clearly has failed us during the past four years is in describing Trump’s personal corruption. We’re trained to be cautious with pejorative words, so we didn’t want to use it. Trump took advantage of that.

When a lobbyist or CEO who wants something from the federal government books a hotel room or has a meal or buys a drink at Trump Hotel in DC, knowing full well that some of that money is going to wind up in Trump’s pocket, THAT IS CORRUPTION.

When Trump continues to accept money from lobbyists and CEOs who want something from the federal government, THAT IS CORRUPTION.

When Trump insists on frequenting his own properties when he travels, knowing that federal employees must stay with him and that some of that money winds up in his own pocket, THAT IS CORRUPTION.

Mind, that’s not just my opinion. That is literally the dictionary definition of corruption. If a county or a state or any other federal official had done these things, that person could be prosecuted and imprisoned. Do people honestly not understand this?

Trump is immune from prosecution because he is president. But what he is doing if just straight-up illegal in just about every jurisdiction in this country.

And yet when this is covered at all, it is couched with “critics say there is a conflict of interest….” NO. A conflict of interest would be if the friend of a brother-in-law were profiting. This is open and shut corruption. Period.

I sometimes wonder if Trump really were to shoot someone on 5th Avenue, what the coverage would be. “The president appears to have shot someone on the street. Critics suggest this was an overreach of executive power.”

This timidity with the English language extended to other areas. Perfect example: Russian “meddling” in the 2016 election. NO. They didn’t play some harmless pranks. They actively worked to get Donald Trump elected.

In 2016, Trump began disseminating material stolen by Russian spies on Oct 10, 29 days before the election. So he began about a week late with the Russian disinformation this time. Question: Can he make up for that lost time?

Trump attacking Barr should be a warning to every Republican: The compromises you make to your ethics & principles will never be enough.

There is always one more compromise, one more demand, one more corruption that he will require of you. There is no 'half-in' with Trump.

who does this?

 

Trump walks out on his bills

Private contractors, bartenders, painters, real estate brokers and others have all claimed that Trump didn’t adequately compensate them for their work before he was sworn into office. More recently, Trump has been accused of failing to pay local officials who provide thousands of dollars’ in security assistance to the president’s campaign during rallies.

How Trump plowed through $1 billion, losing cash advantage

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump’s sprawling political operation has raised well over $1 billion since he took the White House in 2017 — and set a lot of it on fire.

Trump bought a $10 million Super Bowl ad when he didn’t yet have a challenger. He tapped his political organization to cover exorbitant legal fees related to his impeachment. Aides made flashy displays of their newfound wealth — including a fleet of luxury vehicles purchased by Brad Parscale, his former campaign manager.

Meanwhile, a web of limited liability companies hid more than $310 million in spending from disclosure, records show.

Now, just two weeks out from the election, some campaign aides privately acknowledge they are facing difficult spending decisions at a time when Democratic nominee Joe Biden has flooded the airwaves with advertising. That has put Trump in the position of needing to do more of his signature rallies as a substitute during the coronavirus pandemic while relying on an unproven theory that he can turn out supporters who are infrequent voters at historic levels.

FULL CIRCLE: Trump today issued the same set of demands to Attorney General Bill Barr that he issued last year to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky (1) Launch an investigation into Joe Biden and (2) make a public announcement. (There is no evidence of wrongdoing by Biden.)

here's something I didn't see coming, did you?

He doesn't pay taxes here, but pays them in China?

 

 

New Tax Story: As Trump raises questions about Hunter Biden and China, his tax records show China is one of three foreign countries where he has reported having a bank account. He paid $188,561 in taxes in China in 2013-2015

Obama, in Pennsylvania today, tells it like it is:

"[Trump] has not shown any interest in doing the work or helping anybody but himself & his friends or treating the presidency like a reality show he can use to get attention..the only people truly better off than they were 4 years ago are billionaires who got his tax cuts"

Yesterday, Trump issued an Executive Order aiming to politicize the civil service so his appointees can bully career officials into obeying illegal orders.
