The Trump Adminstration: Whose the Bad Boy Today?
Good Day World!
If you're going to try to follow the antics and blatant lies put out by the Trump's administration, be prepared for a daily dose of corruption.
Trump's Veteran's Affairs Secretary, David Shulkin, is the latest member of the Trump team to get ensnared in a scandal. The charges are criminal fraud.
Another great appointee by the orange-faced fool sitting in the Oval Office.
This bad boy comes on the heels of some more Trump bad boys that have recently stepped on their dicks. I'm talking about his Chief-Of-Staff, John Kelly, and his personal and White House Counsel lawyer, Don McGahn.
They both lied about how much they knew, and when, about WH staffer Rob Porter's background. FBI Director Chris Wray testified to lawmakers they both knew well in advance of last week.
Of all people, Republican Trey Gowdy is conducting an investigation into what they both knew and how far the cover-up for Porter extended.
Gowdy is also looking into why, and how, so many White House Staffers have been working without a full security clearance. A lot of people want to know that.
I can see the investigation getting dicey when they look at Jared Kushner's FBI files and see why he hasn't been cleared yet. He's the next bad boy to have his ass roasted by some lawmakers.
We all know Donny is the "baddest" of the bad boys lurking around the White House.
It ought to be amusing when Trump's ex-girlfriend, porn star Stormy McDaniels, starts singing about her illicit relationship with Trump who was married to Melania at the time and who had just given birth to their son Baron.
Another Trumpie will soon be joining the bad boy club of shame. That's attorney Michael Cohen, who claimed he gave Stormy $130,000 out of his own pocket, and that he never billed Trump for the money.
Think about that claim for a moment. A lawyer pays Trump's hush money out of his own bank account...because he doesn't want anything bad to happen to Donny.
That's about as believable as Trump never lies!
Here's the kicker, when Cohen publicly announced he paid her a $130,000, Stormy felt she was free to tell her story, according to her manager.
And let's not forget another Trump appointee, Scott Pruitt, who is the first EPA administrator to have a 24-hour security detail that accompanies him at all times, even at the agency's headquarters in Washington.
His first-class flying habits have been questioned for months by taxpayer groups who demand an explanation.
Pruitt was asked about the issue following a Washington Post report on Sunday that detailed some of his travel expenses, including a $1,641.43 first-class seat for a short flight in June from Washington to New York City.
Pruitt's ticket cost six times what EPA paid for his aides seated in coach.
His reasoning for this? He's afraid of the public. Probably for good reason.
A recent AP report also talked about how Pruitt personally took off (he sat there and dictated to a flunky) all climate change information from the EPA website.
The use of luxury air travel by members of Trump's Cabinet has been under scrutiny for months, after the resignation of Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price in September following media reports he spent at least $400,000 in taxpayer funds on private jets for himself and his staff.
No shortages of bad boys during the Trump regime. The question is, whose the bad boy today?
Time for me to walk on down the road...
