Secret Service spent over $250,000 at Trump properties in first half of 2017 alone

At least he’s keeping the money in the family, like any respectable mob boss.


I don’t think we’ve seen this much institutionalised corruption coming out of the White House since Warren G. Harding.


Hate to put it this way, but we have a lot of bigger fish to fry. $250k is chicken feed in the grand scope of tRump Co. things.

It’s kind of amazing - he’s president of the US and still running the same kind of little scams he was always running. He’s in a position to run the biggest possible scams, but it’s like he thinks that because he successfully pulled these particular scams all his life, when people weren’t paying attention, he can safely continue to do so, despite the fact that people now are. (The family may be running some bigger scams, too, which makes it even more absurd they’re bothering with this petty shit. They really seem to feel that they’re “owed” because Trump became president without wanting to be.)

I was just reading about how he corrupted Eric’s (real) children’s cancer charity. Eric always made a big deal about holding fundraisers at Trump properties because they could hold them there for free. Apparently that didn’t last very long - Donnie got mad that they weren’t getting anything in return. So he started demanding money for it. To make up for it, he “donated” money from his own fake charity, which had all been donated by other people, to his son’s charity to make up the difference. But that was just laundering donations given to Trump’s fake charity to directly pay himself. Then Donnie packed the board of Eric’s charity with his own employees (and family) and started inflating what he charged to use the facilities. On top of which they started diverging the outgoing funds from children’s cancer spending to other charities that held events at Trump properties, turning actual charity funds into more kickbacks. (On top of which, the Trump family took personal credit for all charitable expenditures from Eric’s organization, though they actually gave almost no money to it themselves.)


Even My Own Light Understanding Means Epic Negligence by Trump.


Wow. In a world full of scum, they are finding new ways to become even filthier scum.

Ripping off a children’s cancer charity? yeah, sounds like Trump. Christ thats low.

You know that sinkhole that opened the other day in Brazil? I wish one would open under Trump tower and swallow that family whole


Al Capone was convicted of evading $215,000 worth of taxes, which was also chicken feed.

Reading the wikipedia article about what happened next was interesting:

Capone was sent to Atlanta U.S. Penitentiary in May 1932, aged 33. Upon his arrival at Atlanta, the 250-pound (110 kg) Capone was officially diagnosed with syphilis and gonorrhoea. He was also suffering from withdrawal symptoms from cocaine addiction, the use of which had perforated his nasal septum. Capone was competent at his prison job of stitching soles on shoes for eight hours a day, but his letters were barely coherent.[85] He was seen as a weak personality, and so out of his depth dealing with bullying fellow inmates that his cellmate, seasoned convict Red Rudensky, feared that Capone would have a breakdown.

At Alcatraz, Capone’s decline became increasingly evident as neurosyphilis progressively eroded his mental faculties. He spent the last year of his sentence in the prison hospital, confused and disoriented.

After Capone was released from prison, he was referred to Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore for the treatment of paresis (caused by late-stage syphilis).

In 1946, his physician and a Baltimore psychiatrist examined him and concluded that Capone had the mentality of a 12-year-old child.[98] Capone spent the last years of his life at his mansion in Palm Island, Florida, spending time with his wife and grandchildren.


But its this. THIS little scam and all the others are what endear him to supporters. The ultimate “hes getting his, good for him!” kind of rational. Its pathological. And its the support that means he’ll always be off the hook. He basically cheated the ultimate system and is applauded for it. You know, “Its The American Way!” and all that. Barf.


I mean, it wasn’t even the first time he’d blatantly taken advantage of a children’s health charity. There was the children’s AIDS charity whose fundraising event he crashed in the '90s, stealing the seat of a major donor, participating in the event in order to get photographed as if he’d given a lot of money to the cause, and then fucked off without giving a cent. Fucking over kids in serious need with a scam so he can get a photo op that makes him look like something other than the narcissistic psychopath he actually is? That’s just Trump in a nutshell.

We need some sinkholes of the Guatemala variety:
