"The Trump administration has long made a point of highlighting how Trump donates his salary every quarter, fulfilling a campaign promise. But as many have pointed out, Trump makes plenty of money during his presidency considering he refused to divest from his business interests.

"President Trump's decision not to divest his businesses netted him $434 million in personal revenue in 2018 alone"the last year for which data is available," Robert Maguire, research director for Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, tweeted in March.

"That's a thousand times more than his presidential salary." Plus, the donation to the HHS comes as his administration had previously called for a cut in the agency's budget.

"Essentially, Trump is actively working to dismantle HHS and other government agencies that respond to outbreaks like the coronavirus while falsely posturing as their generous benefactor,"

Maybe she'll hold up a copy of his tax returns next, lol.

Run an ad containing the list of Trump's cuts and proposed cuts to the CDC and the dismantling of pandemic response units.

Trump's comments about '15 cases going to zero,' not wanting to allow American cruise ship passengers off to 'keep the numbers low' (of reported cases) or 'testing means more cases' etc are enough to fry him.

After all these years, these ninnies aren't getting any better at the job. Who else is this stupid? You'd have to hold a contest to find someone stupider.

OK. As an aside, "The Peasants are Revolting" was an old King of Id gag.

Major B tricked his friends into renouncing their accounts but kept his. It's pretty comical. Maybe he'll run for president. He has the right character traits.

Good riddance! I give them a month before they get sick of each other and start in-fighting.

Since they're all so interested in hobbies, I was sort of hoping they'd invite me over for their basket weaving lessons.
