No, Trump's Habit Of Cheating Is Not Going To Ever Benefit America Or Americans


The essential Donald J. Trump

Many people were shocked a few weeks ago when Trump and his crooked sons blatantly broke federal election law by soliciting campaign contributions from parliamentarians in the U.K., Canada, Australia, Iceland, Denmark, Finland and other very white countries for his presidential run. But bending and breaking the law whenever he can get away with it has long been a consistent feature of Trump's life. He brags about it and the calibre of people who support him are neither repulsed nor offended. They admire him for those very qualities and seem incapable of realizing that losers like themselves have only one role in his universe: victims.

Trump forces everyone who works for him to sign a ridiculously unconstitutional non-disclosure agreement and one of his recently departed campaign staffers, Sam Nunberg, is being sued for $10 million by Trump now for violating that confidentiality agreement. Trump flipped out because Nunberg, a racist who is hardly a sympathetic character himself, transferred his loyalty to Ted Cruz. In the legal back and forth, several things have come into the public sphere that Trump has desperately tried to hide, some just typically clownish and some that could have grave legal consequences since-- surprise, surprise-- Trump has been cheating and breaking the law again.

The circus show involves a mostly ignored report from May that then campaign manager Corey Lewandowski was humping Trump spokeswoman Hope Hicks all over the office and that the two of them had turned the campaign into a soap opera with public screaming matches that spilled onto Manhattan streets. A New York Supreme Court document from Nunberg accuses Trump of trying to "use the sword of private arbitration proceeding against me to silence media coverage [of the] sordid and apparently illicit affair" between the two right-wing horn-dogs. Nunberg's contention is that the case does not belong in secret arbitration proceedings but in public courts. The non-disclosure agreement Nunberg and everyone else who works for Herr Trumpf, right down to campaign volunteers, includes not disclosing anything about any of Trump's crooked children, anything about Trump's crooked business ventures, etc. It also prohibits the employees from backing any other candidates, which is clearly unconstitutional.

But it is the section that prohibits the disclosure of any information regarding "actual or prospective business ventures, contracts, alliances, affiliations" that could come back to most damage Trump. Christina Wilkie and S.V. Date, writing for HuffPo dug through the muck and found the Trumpish plot to set up a fake company, mingling corporate and campaign funds in the process. Who would have imagined! Nunberg contends that Trumpy-the-Clown "illegally funneled corporate money into the campaign, and created a fictitious company that was listed as a plaintiff in the lawsuit," Trump 2012 PCA.

This morning I woke up to the pack of jackals called Morning Joe puffing themselves up and sounding all sanctimonious and self-righteous about Ruth Bader Ginsberg warning the public about Trump's essential nature, instead of heaping praise on her. I turned it off so I wouldn't have to hear it while I was attending to my biological needs.

I was sickened by the apology RBG made when she told the truth! Why does everyone let the RWNJ's intimidate them when they say what everyone else is thinking? She should have stood her ground.
