The idea that Trump Hotel was a money-laundering operation is already advanced.

Remember when Trump fired a bunch of IG's and other internal watchdogs? Most corrupt administration in US history.

We still have a few Trumpites who come here. These are the stories I would actually enjoy their opinions on.

@#1 ... The idea that Trump Hotel was a money-laundering operation is already advanced. ...

I was going to suggest a different headline for this thread...

Despite Taking Foreign Bribes, Trump's DC Hotel Hemorrhaged Money

But I think your comment may be a bit more spot on.

Trump is nothing if not redundant. He keeps repeating whatever works.

Now I have to wonder if this is how one bankrupts a casino?

Bankrupting a casino sounds like a greet way to launder money.

Redundancy is one of Trump's "tells."

If you can bankrupt a casino you're either a criminal or an idiot.

Back in the summer of 2016 I asked a family member why the vote for candidate Trump.

The response was, "because he is such a great businessman, and that is what we need in the White House."

Ya, I heard that one a lot and then I hit them with all the bankruptcies and failed businesses - among other things.

Yeah, I got that "great businessman" response, too. That just told me they didn't do their homework. They completely ignored the important stuff, like . . . "Everything Trump touches dies."

Which, incidentally, is still true to this very day.

The Cons elected a guy who bankrupted an oil company, the elected a guy who bankrupted a casino. Why anyone thinks they have any financial acumen is way beyond me.

Bankruptcy serves more than one purpose than just a "going out of business sale." It gets Trump out from under a lot of debt, too. He has a lot of financial acumen when it comes stiffing his creditors while he enjoys the spoils.

We can't forget that Trump's mind isn't wired like a normal person who takes pride in running a successful business. A success story to Trump is bleeding a company for every cent it's worth and claiming bankruptcy. How much foreign money was poured in as a money laundering scheme is only ours to speculate. But it does sound like something he'd dream up . . . considering the dirty money he used to finance his political campaigns. In fact, he could probably teach a course it it.

Trump has turned the GOP into a Mafia organization.

My neighbor across the street, before he died, told me he regretted voting for the orange buffoon. His words were "I thought, what's the worst he could do? Boy am I ever embarrassed."

Because they keep telling us they are great businessmen. If you say something often enough dumb people will start to believe it.

Trump said he was in the top of his class, but refused to release his grades.

He said he was in perfect health, but refused to release his exam.

He said he was a billionaire, but refused to release his taxes.

Never listen to people when they tell you how great and powerful they are. A lion doesn't need to tell you it's a lion.

Trump lies about everything he doesn't have. It comes as natural to him as breathing. Lying is his first avenue of defense. He plays the percentages of how many people he can fool and then even lies about that. He lies about things that are too small to lie about. He lies when it's easier to tell the truth. His lies are so prolific that they're not even borderline pathological any more. They're completely engrained in his lack of self respect, not to mention his lifetime of failures . . . his colossal failure as President of the United States bring the biggest of them all.

The "Big Lie" about losing the 2020 election to Joe Biden is a good example of just how "tetched" in the head he has become.

So radical, in fact, that I've long suspected that he also lied to Vladimir Putin and he's now in default of a promise . . . or "welching" as Mr. Putin might see it from his own point of view.
