Gosh - Trump is finally proven to make a charitable donation, and look what thanks he gets...



Man oh man.

1. no evidence trump actually paid this.

per his usual m.o., he paid at most 70%, probably not until field filed suit.

2. Pretty weird for them to spell it out

 


It seems like this is the second attempt to collect, since the letter appears to answer a question that arose from a previous invoice - "Hey, what's a charity doing on here?"

3. Of course, setting up casino business in Cuba was Catholic Charity-purely humanitarian philanthropy

Trump was hoping to ameliorate the suffering of Catholic Cubans by restoring evening bingo through his efforts there

5. There's just no pleasing some people

They can take some comfort in the knowledge that tRump is still, at the end of the day, a self-serving prick, which is the only reason for his charity in the first place.
