Trump and his cabinet/buffoonery- Get your bunkers ready!

Recommended Posts

Here is a summary of all seventeen (17!) ongoing investigations involving our President.  Thankfully, we have a separate thread for each investigative body just to keep all the graft organized, so we can use this thread for his general, non-criminal terribleness (which is still good for 100+ posts per day).

Anyone want to bet a dollar that the money he 'gives away' to other charities will be non-existent or somehow funneled back to him?

 

Best part..   we KNEW he cheated charities before he was elected. KNEW it.

And the republicans elected him anyway and have been cheering it ever since.

Never again swill i ever give any of them the slightest respect.. spineless, brainless soulless and hearltess

And stupid. Lots and lots of degenerate, inbred alcoholic wifebeating god fearing stupid.

 

Never an ounce of respect. Ever.

The money he "gives away" is (1) other people's money, not his and (2) used to pay fines his companies received or to buy things for his properties.  This has been public knowledge since at least September 2016

How Donald Trump retooled his charity to spend other people’s money

 

Quote

The Donald J. Trump Foundation is not like other charities. An investigation of the foundation — including examinations of 17 years of tax filings and interviews with more than 200 individuals or groups listed as donors or beneficiaries — found that it collects and spends money in a very unusual manner.

 

For one thing, nearly all of its money comes from people other than Trump. In tax records, the last gift from Trump was in 2008. Since then, all of the donations have been other people’s money — an arrangement that experts say is almost unheard of for a family foundation.

 

Trump then takes that money and generally does with it as he pleases. In many cases, he passes it on to other charities, which often are under the impression that it is Trump’s own money.

 

In two cases, he has used money from his charity to buy himself a gift. In one of those cases — not previously reported — Trump spent $20,000 of money earmarked for charitable purposes to buy a six-foot-tall painting of himself.

 

Money from the Trump Foundation has also been used for political purposes, which is against the law. The Washington Post reported this month that Trump paid a penalty this year to the Internal Revenue Service for a 2013 donation in which the foundation gave $25,000 to a campaign group affiliated with Florida Attorney General Pamela Bondi (R).

 

 

Much much more at link and, FWIW, the journalist who investigated and wrote this won a Pulitzer Prize for looking into Trump's finances, which led directly to the court shutting down the Trump "charity" today.  Like a dozen articles similar to the above can be found here:

Not any more.  Today's court ruling stipulates that the Trump Foundation be dissolved and that any remaining funds be distributed only to reputable charitable organizations approved by the New York State Attorney General.

 

No more portraits of Trump.  No more settlement payments of personal lawsuits.  No more promises of money to vet organizations only to stiff them later.

I'm actually amazed that Trump was able to hold himself to just promising a nonexistent tax cut to the middle class. As it got closer and closer to the election I was expecting him to start promising new cars and ponies for every family with a young child.

Ya know what this makes me wonder?

 

how many people are out there running lifelong criminal enterprises that haven't been stupid enough to run for president?

 

Scary thought.
