Does anyone else feel like we're being governed by the mafia? Seriously, can any of you picture Vito Corleone sitting at the Oval Office's H.M.S. Resolute Desk, scratching his chin with an upward flick of his fingertips, and saying, "Healthcare is a dirty business...It doesn't make any difference to me what a man does for a living, understand. But your business, is uh, a little more complicated than anyone knew. " I can definitely picture it.
As explained by Steve Benon of MSNBC, ". ...Michael Flynn, for example, pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI about his contacts with Russia during the president’s transition period. Rick Gates pleaded guilty to a crime he committed literally this month ("this month = February 2018). We’re not talking about misdeeds from these guys’ college years; these are recent transgressions.
This just in: "Trump's personal assistant, John McEntee, was fired Monday, because he is currently under investigation by the Department of Homeland Security for financial crimes," CBS News reports. The best part is, McEntee was only unemployed for one day before being hired by Trump's 2020 reelection campaign as a senior adviser for campaign operations.
Our president has surrounded himself with criminal defendants. Let's put the actions of those around Trump aside through. Donald himself has been linked to multiple infractions of the law.
Even before he ran for office, Trump was taken to court for non payment for services rendered by thousands of employees. After he won the lawsuits, the lawyers who handled his cases turned around and sued Trump for not paying them. Later during the election, the man neglected to pay a group of little girls who performed at his campaign rally. This is what we call theft of service. It's a crime.
Once he got elected, he not only tried to squash the investigation into the hacking of our election by Russia, but he also encouraged foreign diplomats to stay at Trump owned hotels when they were in the U.S. Donald even put the presidential seal on a collection of golf tees, which are being sold at his golf club, CNN reports. Federal law: The law states that the seal can only be used for official government business.
I could list several other laws that this man has broken, but I believe you get the picture. The problem is he's never been held accountable for any it. The man skates through life breaking laws and ethics rules with absolutely no consequence.
Many of the news anchors on TV would have viewers believe that the newest revolution of wrongdoing would be the one to nail Trump. They all want to be the one to slap John Oliver's "We Got Him Button." Ladies and gentlemen believe me when I tell you no one is ever going to slap that button. Three weeks before the election America saw a video of Trump bragging about grabbing women by their who-haws, AND WE STILL ELECTED HIM!
Nothing sticks to him. Trump even bragged that he could stand in the middle of 5th Avenue and shoot somebody and not lose voters. He's right. I can't explain it, but we let him get away with whatever he wants. It's out fault. We had mounds of information about his character and we still elected him. Forget John Gotti, President Trump is truly the "Teflon Don."
