This Is Why Donald Trump Is Not Invited To Royal Weddings Or National Funerals

September 12, 2018

Let me put it as direct as I can for how Americans feel about this matter.

As Trump arrived at a memorial service for Flight 93 in Shanksville there was a most troubling photo captured by reporters.  Trump was seen pumping his fists as he greeted supporters in a scene that felt more appropriate at a “Make America Great Again” political rally than a melancholy remembrance for nearly 3,000 lives lost.  Most people are not dismissive of the meaning of 9/11 and the photo reminds us why Trump is not invited to royal weddings or national funerals.

Simply embarrassing.  On 9/11.  Staggeringly out of touch.  Again, no sense of empathy.  Trump is not a role model for anyone–ever.

Try to tell me that Melania is not in this for the money?  No one is proud of this idiot or would want to bed it if cash were not involved.

I am reminded tonight as I see this buffoonish behavior from Trump that he is simply unfit for the job.  He has absolutely no redeeming quality.  As such we all can call out shame on the Republicans who have done nothing to rein him in to save us from his actions, or the deep embarrassment he causes on a daily basis.

That is why America will step up on Election Day and teach the GOP a very tough lesson they need to learn.

We are tired of the misfits in this land–from top to bottom.   The top one is pictured below.

    Sandy,

    You could not be more wrong. In fact, Sandy, you are being duped in so many ways–and then are still kind enough to pretend he is making you some kind of deal by not taking a salary.

    Trump hotel income jumped from $33.8 million in 2016 to $60.5 million in 2017.

    According to financial disclosures, Trump hotel revenue soared over the past few years. In 2015, records show just $16.7 million in hotel and resort revenues. However, that amount doubled to $33.8 million during the campaign and election year. Since Trump began occupying the White House, hotel income jumped about 80%, reaching $60.8 million in 2017. The nature of these monies has been reported on often.

    Various Trump properties banked at least $720,000 from Trump’s own campaign events.
    The Center for Responsive Politics sorted the spending of political committees at Trump properties, and Trump’s own campaign events topped the list. In 2017 alone, Trump’s 2020 campaign spent $720,064 at buildings Trump owns. Right here is an example why U.S. presidents are expected to divest from their businesses. Since Trump still holds these properties, he and his family make bonus money every time he holds a fundraiser.

    After Trump was elected, Mar-a-Lago doubled member fees to $200,000 before taxes.
    This one was straightforward. After the election, Trump signaled he would spend a great deal of time at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida. So the club simply doubled its membership fees to $200,000 before taxes. USA Today found that executives from 50 government contractors and 21 lobbyists hold memberships at Trump clubs.

    In the first eight months of 2017, two-thirds of those executives and lobbyists played golf on days Trump was there. The swamp was never so convenient for doing business, and the president was never so obvious about how to find him before.

    Secret Service golf-cart rentals alone cost taxpayers $137,000 in nine months. The payments go to Trump’s business.
    Not only do Trump’s frequent golf trips burn taxpayer dollars; they also make the Trumps lots of money. The system is rather simple and, once you see how it works, you can see why Trump spent over 25% of his first year in office at his own golf clubs.

    Overall, the easiest mark is the U.S. Secret Service tasked with the job of protecting Trump. As the law stands, the agency cannot receive payments from presidents. This law exists to limit potential conflicts of interest (irony alert). So the Secret Service paid $137,000 to Trump’s Florida and New Jersey properties for golf cart rentals in just the first nine months of 2017.

    And the list goes on and on.

    President Trump donates his presidental pay and he didn’t become rich off taking from welfare recipients.
