First For-Profit President: 'Oh come on...what did expect?'

Good Day World!

Don't act surprised.

You voted for him. 

When president-elect Trump announced yesterday that he was getting rid of any conflicts of interest between his new job and Trump enterprises, it was a puppet show worthy of the late Jim Henson.

The lead puppet, culled from Chump's army of personal lawyers, did a razzel dazzle presentation for the press (did you see that pile of folders?) designed to ease Americans ethics concerns.

In a show David Copperfield would be proud of, Trump's lawyer, Sheri Dillon, did a little dance and said "Now you see it, now you don't!" 

Watch the bouncing ball...Trump.. is.. no.. longer.. going .. to run.. his.. business. 

Don't lose sight of it now. There it is. 

The ball finally settled and reality set in after the announcement; Trump's boys will run the show with his blessings and will continue to take covert orders from their thin-skinned parent.

It doesn't matter that people like Constitutional law professor, Laurence Tribe, have slammed Trump's tricky plan as a "totally fraudulent workaround." 

The majority of constitutional ethics experts agree with him.

"John Wonderlich, who oversees the pro-transparency Sunlight Foundation, said Trump's approach to "governance and ethics repudiates decades of accepted norms for modern democratic accountability" and said his presidency likely will be "mired in litigation, doubt, scandal, and crisis" as a result." (Via USA Today)

This should not have come as a surprise to you. 

I also don't want to hear you whine about that Wall Trump promised Mexico would pay for. I know. Now you have to pay for it.

It's only going to get worse in the next four years. If you're a religious person perhaps you could do penance for your stupidity for voting Herr Trump into the Oval Office.

Hopefully God will forgive you. There's millions of Americans who probably won't.

Time for me to walk on down the road...

It's a mystery to me how you Republicans still show fealty to a traitor and enemy of democracy. Apparently most of you who are  running...
