Trump's Take: What, Me Worry???


Trump spins and then lies to get himself out of the spin or out of another jam like these example sources have reported on:

Note: There dozens of others — do a search of Trump Lies

Latest example: The Trump Foundation, which is under investigation by the New York Attorney General's office. Apparently that foundation never obtained the necessary certification to solicit money from the public during its nearly 30-year existence according to news from ABC.

NYS law requires any charity that solicits more than $25,000 a year from the public to obtain a specific certification. 

(Note: Some reporting shows that Mr. Trump used charity money for personal and political enhancement – (1) bought painting (of himself no less); (2) at least one NFL helmet, and (3) gave $25,000 to FL AG for not jointing Trump U. fraud investigation).

The allegation about the Donald J. Trump Foundation's lack of certification was first reported by the Washington Post and comes about two weeks after NYS AG Eric Schneiderman announced he had opened a broad inquiry into the foundation and that the foundation should stop fund raising operations.

The Trump campaign did not immediately respond to a request for comment and the AG's office declined comment.  However, Trump campaign Jason Miller blasted Schneiderman saying in part:

 “AG Schneiderman is a partisan hack who has turned a blind eye to the Clinton Foundation for years and has endorsed Hillary Clinton for President. This is nothing more than another left-wing hit job designed to distract from Crooked Hillary Clinton’s disastrous week.”

Critical Note: No investigation nor inquiry into the Clinton Foundation has made that comes close to this one regarding Trump using his foundation as a well-documented slush fund regardless of the opinions of Trump supporters.

The newest and broadest inquiry focused on a $25,000 donation given to support Florida AG Pam Bondi. The donation drew scrutiny because Bondi's office declined to join a lawsuit against Trump's now closed Trump University and that raised another set of questions about timing of contribution she dropping any further inquiry.

Trump and Bondi both denied the allegations or any impropriety.

However, Trump paid a $2,500 fine to the IRS because charities are not allowed to give to political causes. He also reimbursed the foundation $25,000.

Note: Trump has a huge team of supposedly sharp, well-paid lawyers, yet none of them knew about that certification provision? That is hard to believe.

Then the saga and his follow-up about calling a former Miss Universe “Miss Piggy” because she had gained weight.

This man has zero, none, nada, nil, goose-egg about any scruples, or even a basic grasp or knowledge about most anything to due with government, that is except what he wants us to believe according to his definition. This does sound a bit confusing, I know, but so is Mr. Trump, extremely confusing. 

In short, he does not deserve to be, nor is not fit to be president, period. 

Thanks for stopping by as usual.
