Which Trump scandal disgusts you the most?

Have to go with caging children and for some reason abandoning the Kurds and leaving a great ally to death, torture and destruction for HIS fucking monetary benefit really shook me. He is a fucking murderer to protect his fucking money! I don't have the energy think of all of them tonight but those two are seared into my brain and pretty horrific.

Was sitting behind my MAGA co-worker when the Trump Foundation news came on


I watched his body language as he knew I was watching too. Hard to explain but he clearly knew it looks HORRIBLE and that I was watching too. He shifted in his seat looking completely uncomfortable. I just could not resist and finally said, "Gosh, and the Clinton Foundation is still going strong after all those investigations with an A rating at charity watch. Quite the week for Trump adding this onto all the impeachment stuff. LOL!"

He clapped back that the Clintons were still corrupt but I could tell it totally got under his skin!

Charity watch doesn't even cover the Trump foundation but here is Charity Navigator

Anthony Scaramucci makes Trump impeachment predictions

The Trump campaign holds a lot of contests. Does anyone win?

The Trump campaign has held at least 15 contests since 2018 offering the chance to win breakfast, lunch, or dinner with President Trump. Supporters are enticed to donate to Trump's campaign with promises of free travel, accommodations, and an "epic" meal with Trump at various locations across the country. An investigation by Popular Information, however, did not uncover evidence that anyone has ever actually won.

Dangling a meal with the candidate to encourage small-dollar contributions is a common tactic in modern presidential politics. Campaigns are typically eager to publicize these meals because: 1. They show the candidate interacting with average Americans, and 2. They encourage more people to enter the next contest.

Elizabeth Warren's campaign, for example, had a contest in July to "Grab a Beer with Elizabeth." Warren posted several photos of her toasting with "Mike and his wife Linda, from Elma New York!"

$100 saws make quick work of Trump's 'virtually inpenetrable' border wall

Dave Goldiner, New York Daily NewsPublished 8:46 a.m. ET Nov. 3, 2019 | Updated 11:22 a.m. ET Nov. 3, 2019
He’s building a wall — and they’re cutting holes right through it.

Migrants and smugglers have succeeded in cutting through President Donald Trump’s “virtually inpenetrable” border wall using cordless saws that cost as little as $100 apiece at hardware stores, border agents and officials told The Washington Post.

Trump administration officials admitted being aware of “a few instances” in which human smugglers managed to breach rebuilt sections of the $10 billion wall that Trump once promised Mexico would pay for, the paper reported.

The widely available saws can cut through the wall’s steel bollards within a matter of minutes. The 30-foot-tall panels can then be easily pushed forward, allowing people to pass through.

It still stuns me how many liberal, science minded people buy into this BS.

Trump's former generals, from James Mattis to Joseph Votel, sound an unprecedented warning

From the beginning of his tenure, the president has given critics plenty of reasons to be excoriated. But we have heard little dissent from warriors — until now.

By Col. Jack Jacobs, Medal of Honor recipient and NBC/MSNBC military analyst
On Oct. 17, I attended the Al Smith Dinner, an annual charity gala in New York City. Political big-shots mingle with media celebrities and corporate executives. It is always an entertaining experience. This year’s keynote address was by retired Marine Corps Gen. James Mattis, President Donald Trump’s erstwhile secretary of defense. Trump once praised Mattis profusely, but more recently has made him the object of his scorn, calling him “the world’s most overrated general.” (Full disclosure: I know Jim Mattis and can report that he is among the finest officers I have met since I first donned a uniform 53 years ago.)

Although Mattis has a well-developed and wry sense of humor, he is judicious about using it. His public persona leaves one with the correct impression that he is the consummate professional warrior. But at the Al Smith Dinner, he chose to deploy his weapons of erudition, surprising and amusing the hundreds of attendees with a rare counterattack directed at the president's "overrated" insult. “I’m honored to be considered that by Donald Trump because he also called Meryl Streep an overrated actress,” Mattis said in his keynote speech. “So, I guess I’m the Meryl Streep of generals.”

The barb was doubly surprising given Mattis’ previous reluctance to criticize his former commander in chief, a decision that has garnered its fair share of criticism. But there’s a reason for Mattis’ reluctance. Generals in Mattis’ position, even those who are retired, do not criticize the sitting president. Until this administration, Mattis’ joke would have been unthinkable. And yet, Mattis is merely the latest in a line of commanding officers who have recently rebuked the president’s decisions. This collective decision to go against such entrenched military traditions should give their warnings even more weight. When the generals are speaking out, something is really wrong.
