Re: Official Trump Presidency Thread, Part 3

What exactly are Sanders’ qualifications for being governor, aside from being a Trump toadie in Alabama?

The only qualifications anyone needs in his world are that they said nice things to and about him.

Her dad was governor, that is all you need, she would probably win in a landslide in AR.

She has more experience in governing than Trump did when he took the highest office in the land. And if that one don't scare ya, nothing will.

If he's not a billionaire today, he'll be one by the time he leaves office.

This, and just about everything else now, is about the Republican's in the House and Senate. Some are actively, full on corrupt. ALL of them are complicit now. This should be in sharp focus at this point.
These are the people who really need to pay because Trump is an impotent, pathetic fraud with only minority support comprised of several thousand venal oligarchs and thirty-five million racist, dumb-as-fuck shitheads. He's a fucking worthless, garbage human being- but he is what he is and that's exactly what he's always been.
Take away the bots amplifying their voices and people will see, while those supporters are still way too many, they no where near represent the majority.
That they are being allowed to destroy our institutions and wreck generational havoc is all on the Republican's.

Either this democracy survives this or it doesn't.
If it does survive, Republicans need to burn for generations for what they've done (the major crimes go back decades, folks) as well as what they've allowed to happen.
The word Republican has to become universally synonymous with moral cowardice, disgrace, and treachery.

Nah, death lets him off too easy.
I want him, his name, his family, his business, all of it decimated and ruined long before he dies, just so he can sit by himself in his final years, wishing he had never ran for president.

He's almost for sure going to be run out of New York City. You think he can live there after this shitshow when only 18% of the NYC voters voted for him in the first place? No he better start looking for some property in Arkansas or Alabama.

I'm pretty sure a billionaire can handle living in NYC without dealing with everyday people

Not an active guy like Trump. He's always busy jogging, catching the latest plays on Broadway, looking for rapists in Central park and shooting people on 5th Ave. No way he'll be able to maintain his active lifestyle.

I want him to stew in misery as well. Plus his dying in office would generate endless bullshit conspiracy theories.

Re: Official Trump Presidency Thread, Part 3

He’s 73. He’ll probably die in like 10 years of a heart attack inside his golden tower surrounded by billions of dollars.

We put this guy in office. There’s no happy ending for us.

If a prison sentence - which is eminently warranted - is unrealistic, your wish list is an acceptable second option, or even an adjunct.

Re: Official Trump Presidency Thread, Part 3

Failed Donald Trump golf course turns into dilapidated state park

Trump bought the wet, overgrown, tree-tangled parcels that sit miles off a state parkway beginning in 1998 for less than the current price of a two-bedroom condo in Trump Tower. But local leaders nixed the golf-course plans and his subsequent efforts to sell it to a homebuilding company faltered. So he gave it away.

Despite the purchase price of $2.75 million, and a county assessment of $5.5 million at the time of the donation, Trump’s 2016 campaign said in a list of charitable donations published by The Washington Post that the land was worth $26.1 million.

https://www.hindustantimes.com/world-news/failed-donald-trump-golf-course-turns-into-dilapidated-state-park/story-5EtzwqUixdfpHZZmsKoRGJ.html?utm_source=quora&utm_medium=referral
So the tax break he got from the donation far exceeded what he actually paid for the land? It doesn't make him "smart" ... it makes him a criminal:

... there’s no law against inflating the value of property on campaign press releases. But the law does require taxpayers to accurately report the value of all charitable donations for deduction purposes and Trump could face a penalty or fine from the IRS if he exaggerated the value of the land on his tax returns.
Tax evasion eventually nailed Capone ... let's see it get Trump too.

"Undervalue/overvalue" (whatever benefits him in a particular situation) is pretty much Trump's MO.

Re: Official Trump Presidency Thread, Part 3

The Washington Post reports how in the 1980s and 1990s Trump intimidated the financial press, got reporters fired and analysists transferred, and threatened to out an executive. The result was that when he issued bonds, nobody dared to give an honest analysis. People who invested in Trump lost over a billion dollars. The suppression of truth about the his finances was the foundation of his reputation as a master businessman.

Trump had waged a relentless, vindictive campaign to build his own myth by suppressing the facts: Between the collapse of his empire in 1991 and the issuance of more than $1 billion in Trump Hotels and Casino Resorts stock and junk bonds by 1996, he’d compromised the truth-telling capacity of Forbes magazine, the Wall Street Journal, TV broadcasters, Arthur Andersen and casino analysts on Wall Street. By the time Trump resigned in 2009 as chairman of the public company he founded, he had paid himself an estimated $82 million in personal compensation, while the company’s stocks and bonds had become nearly worthless.

Trump looted his businesses for personal gain, leaving stockholders with nothing?

Say it ain't so, Joe!
