Trump's ethics office reverses policy, will allow anonymous donors to fund White House employees' legal defense

Reversible ethics? Oxymoron of the hour.


While some might think that having the words ‘ethics’ and ‘Trump’ in one sentence is a mistake, this is definitely not true. For instance: “Donald Trump obviously thinks that ethics are something that he cannot be bothered with.”


If the President does it, that means it is not unethical.



So foreign donations would be ok too?


Fascinating. A mechanism that allows members of the public to bribe the Trump Administration-- as long as he holds up his end of the deal, and renews his legal jeopardy on a periodic basis.
