Trump's FART Act and the Smell of Corruption

Good Day World!

In the Trump Hopper: 
the FART Act!

The cloying smell of corruption at the White House is overpowering. 

A quick look at Donny's days in office is like touring a blue cheese factory! That stench sticks with you for a while.

Trump's rotten minions have drafted legislation that would empower Trump to ignore international trade rules set by the World Trade Organization (WTO).

The idea stinks as bad as the legislation's name - and I'm not making this up - the FART Act. (It stands for United States Fair and Reciprocal Tariff Act.)

Experts say its a waste of time because congress has to approve any move to change our current contract with the WTO. That doesn't bother Donny whose sure he's going to be declared Dictator for Life by his loyal base.

Trump's cabinet is a collection of skunks that violate every ethic rule thrown their way. The big stinker is Scott Pruitt, and possibly the most corrupt of that group. Lawmakers are losing track of the ethic violations he's made in one short year.

Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross fits in well with this foul-smelling group. For starters he shares business interests with Vladimir Putin's family.

Congress was under the impression old Wilbur had divested all of his holdings in Navigator (his Russian connection). He didn't. and made monkeys out of the confirmation crew that let him slide by.

Then there's Ben Carson who Trump picked to head up the Department of Housing and Urban Development. 

The man who said the pyramids were for storing grain (news to historians worldwide), is being sued for suspending an Obama-era rule requiring communities to examine and address barriers to racial integration. 

He also has some bad spending habits like a $34,000 table for his office. The man has no shame.

Then we have "Mad Dog" Mike Mulvaney (Director of the Office of Management and Budget) who is temporarily heading up the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. Not long ago Mulvaney attacked the bureau. Now, he's turned it into a sick joke on consumers.

That's enough foulness for now. There's more examples, but I don't enough time, or space here.

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

Memo To Republicans: Don't Assume Kissing Trump's Ring Will Get You Elected, or Re-Elected

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...
