A Maryland judge found that a real estate management company co-owned by Jared Kushner violated multiple consumer protection laws by improperly collecting debts, charging sham fees and misleading tenants.

Screw The Poor is a core GOP value.

Jared's criminal actions are a vain attempt to legitimize certain anti-tropes and stereotypes primarily directed at his fellow Jews. How bigoted and anti-semitic of him.

"Screw The Poor is a core GOP value."

Not JUST the poor, my friend. Gouging, stiffing, scamming, screwing, plotting, scheming and leaving disasters in their wake is just another day at the office for Trump and his family.

It's what gets them out of bed in the morning.

I still can't quite wrap my mind around why the Republican Party, once a respected institution, wants to give these clap trappers another chance to destroy democracy and all that America stands for in the world.

I understand that one party rule forever is a powerful aphrodisiac but at what cost? They all end up morally and financially bankrupt, like Russia ~ bemoaning past glory days.

Not to mention targets of assassination to all on comers.

People just don't want to believe Trump and LaPierre are in Putin's back pocket.

Their mind won't let them think it.

The implications are too dire, especially when all their friends and neighbors still believe. Exhibit A: Eberly.

That's why it works. It works the same way a cult works. Because it is a cult.

It's more than that. America is sick; we worship fame, even people who are famous for no good reason, like the Obese Orange Traitor. Thanks to a scripted TV show, America believed that the worst businessman in history was a success. It's like thinking that Tom Sellek can solve crimes or that William Shatner can captain a spaceship. The dummies didn't understand that Drumpf was an actor playing a role.

Dotard is a lazy, self-obsessed, incurious moron, but he has a particular evil genius for self-preservation. He saw that the GOP, since Nixon and the Southern Strategy had become a party of white grievance racists; being a racist himself, goal one was to lean into that grievance 100% and coopt the GOP. The MAGAts fell in love with him because he said the things they'd been thinking. The MAGAts hate minorities and liberals, so they love his cruelty toward brown folks and the LGBTQ community. They loved when he owned the libs.

It's been said before, and it's true, Trumpism is a cult. What's interesting is that without the daily dose of that Drumpf induced high from tweets and FB he might be losing some of his hold. People are leaving the GQP in large numbers, and although the GQP electeds are mostly towing his line because they are scared to death of primaries and that Drumpf will create a third party, the wobbly Trumpers seem to be peeling off.

The second goal was to co-opt the Talibaptists. This was accomplished by blackmailing Falwell Jr, and either Franklin Graham is as evil as Dotard, or he too has skeletons in his closet likely known by Russia.

Once in office, Combover Quisling recognized what levers he would need to pull, a supplicant AG who believed in the supremacy of the Executive Branch and was willing to keep DOJ off his back and tie the Legislative Branch up in court, a few trusted minions in the WH to execute his vision of being an authoritarian dictator, keep his most ardent but unqualified cabinet members as acting so they didn't have to face Senate scrutiny, and so he had greater control. Racists with cruelty in their heats, like Stephen Miller, were drawn to Dotard, and were only too happy to execute his cruel policies. In the end, he owned the angriest, cruelest, stupidest, most racist, most dangerous third or the country, and Gawd help us if he is ever reelected.

Jonestown USA,oooh spooky. Our whole society is swirling the bowl,next stop, wastewater treatment. Before you know it our vaunted "greatness", will be a stale joke for millions.

To me it already is and has been since before Trump ever appeared on the political scene.

Full spectrum dominance has become full spectrum decline. I see no way to reverse it at this point.

Do you?

Well who controls the media, is it wealthy people or poor peoole?

Americans believe wealth is a virtue, and poverty is a sin.

Jesus talked about it a lot, but nobody listens anymore.

Possibly. Trump's own dictatorial attitude, especially about his overt racism and restrictive voting, not to mention his numerous failures in business and life in general, seems to be part of the self-destructive story of his life.

Then there's always the I.R.S., the New York AG and D.A.s, a court ordered receivership of his assets, $Millions$ in legal bills and his 4th bankruptcy ~~ and, of course, the DOJ with no Roy Cohn to hide behind ~~ plus good ol' Rudy turning State's evidence to save himself

With money and a luxurious lifestyle disappearing like water through a sieve, I wouldn't be surprised to hear about another divorce in the making.

It's going to take a lot for people to wake up to the failure Trump has always been. But it's possible.

A pro like Joe Biden is going to be a tough act to follow.

Think Mel still has enough to score another sugar daddy? I'm sure her pre-nup won't get her a dime.

You might be right, but nobody can tell the future.
Start with not voting for Trump or Republicans ever again.
It couldn't hurt.

I don't know what she looks like first thing in the morning but when she pulls herself together she's still a very good looking woman. Not the traditional arm candy, so to speak. However, some semi-aging Royal Saudi might want to score a coup, if you get my drift.

Then, of course, like always, there are those pesky financial conditions to be negotiated.

That's true enough. I hadn't allowed for the "neener neener" aspect. And I suppose someone would inevitably write a book for her.

Write a book, you say?

Let's suggest some working titles:

"The Donald I Hated ~ The Money I Loved"
"Living In Shame and Degradation With Donald"
