Trump Corruption

Bannon Perp Walk


A Grifter’s gotta grift, and this grifter may possibly be grifting his way into a state prison.

Steve Bannon, former chairman of neo-Nazi publication Breitbart and former chief racist advisor for neo-Nazi president (sic) Donald Trump, has been indicted for the second time on a scheme to defraud stupid MAGAts to make donations to “build the wall.”

Did I say second time? Yes, I did. Bannon was previously indicted on federal charges for this scheme to defraud racist Trump-supporting stupid fuckers, but stupid fucker Trump pardoned him when he was actually president (sic), and not afterward when he was pretend president.

Bannon is also facing charges for failing to comply with a congressional subpoena.

New York prosecutors say Bannon played an integral role in an organization known as We Build the Wall Inc, which was designed to bilk Trumpers to fulfill their hero’s pledge to build a racist wall on our border with Mexico. Except, when racist Trump made that racist promise, and as the central theme of his racist presidential campaign, he told us Mexico would pay for it.

During the Trump presidency (sic), Mexico never sent one peso to pay for the wall and Congress never provided funding. Instead, Trump raided the Defense Department’s budget to build the wall. By the time Trump fled Washington with his tail between his legs on President Biden’s inauguration day, only 82 miles of the wall were constructed where there was no barrier previously. According to Customs and Border Control, 452 were built but minus that 80, all of that was funded by previous administrations (Bush and Obama) to replace existing barriers.

The irony Trumpers don’t get is that by donating money to a private source to build the wall, they’re admitting Trump failed at delivering his promise. Also, what was the plan for a private organization to start building a wall on the southern border where they have no authority? They raised $25 million on a promise to build a wall they can’t build. Did I mention MAGAts are stupid?

You don’t own the libs by allowing yourself to be grifted by racist smelly fascists.

Prosecutors claim Bannon funneled more than $100,000 in donations to the organization’s president, Brian Kolfage, who had repeatedly promised not to take a salary. State Attorney General Letitia James said Bannon also profited off the scheme.

Bannon was charged by the Manhattan district attorney, Alvin L. Bragg, with two felony counts of money laundering, two felony counts of conspiracy, and one felony count of a scheme to defraud, and could face a maximum sentence of five to 15 years on the most serious charge.

The United States Constitution says you can’t be tried twice for the same crime. While Bannon did a lot of “in your face” to liberals when Trump pardoned him, his charges in New York don’t qualify as double jeopardy because Trump pardoned him BEFORE there was a federal trial. As Nelson Muntz would say, “Ha-ha!”

James said, “Regular, everyday Americans play by these rules, and yet too often powerful political interests, they ignore these rules. They think they are above the law, and the most egregious of them take advantage.” MAGA fuckers do believe they’re above the law. Look at the Mar-a-Lago case. MAGAts are screaming that Donald Trump should be allowed to steal government secrets and sell them to Russians and Saudis. They equate Trump stealing government documents to not returning library books, which makes sense to people who have never been to a library.

Evidence in the federal trial of one of the group’s founders this year showed that $380,000 was transferred to a nonprofit controlled by Bannon in 2019. Then, hundreds of thousands went to Kolfage and to Bannon. In February and March of 2019, more than $330,000 was transferred from Bannon’s nonprofit’s bank account to Bannon’s personal bank account.

I believe the term for this is “grifting,” but if you prefer “swindling,” we can go with that.

Bannon claims it’s all a political conspiracy against him. While it is true people don’t like Nazis, this isn’t a political conspiracy against him. There are laws against grifting, despite the fact that Trump keeps escaping prison time for doing it himself (Trump charity, Trump University, Trump Organization, etc, etc.).

Bannon said he’s being targeted for building “the dominant platform in all media for grassroots participation” and that prosecutors want to take him down ahead of “the most important midterm election since 1862, since the Civil War,” when his side lost fighting to preserve slavery.

During Bannon’s perp walk, he said, “They’ll have to kill me first. I’ve not yet begun to fight”

How much do you want to bet that Bannon goes to prison without being killed? These people are cowards. They’re really good at calling for others to fight and to go to prison for their fascist causes, but them…not so much.

Just as Trump believes he’s “making America great again” by trying to steal an election, have himself installed as Oompa-Loopma dictator, and steal government documents to sell to our enemies, Steve Bannon believes he’s saving America by grifting Trumpers. Holy shit. He might be right.

If Steve Bannon grifts MAGAts out of all their money so he can buy more shirts to wear all at once, then those Trumpers won’t have any left to buy guns and gasoline for driving across the nation for insurrections and Molotov cocktails.

Bannon is a racist, fascist, Nazi crook. So is Donald Trump. Hopefully soon, these lovers of racist walls will be surrounded by walls.

MAGA Masters


This is my concern…or another one of my concerns. If a Trump-appointed judge can install a Special Master to go over every single document the FBI seized from Trump’s bedbug-ridden country club (MAGA-Lard-O is it?) to decide what the Justice Department can and can’t use as evidence (mostly can’t here), then who will she pick?

These people do their gooning with a straight face. They pretend they’re impartial and doing their jobs correctly. They claim they’re serving the people of this nation when in fact, they’re just serving one man. It’s why they all have brown noses.

This judge in Florida who granted Trump’s request for additional privilege and to stall the investigation is obtuse to the fact that we all know she’s a Trump appointee whose confirmation was rushed through the Senate in Trump’s final days in office. In this case, she hasn’t just stalled the investigation. She’s stopped it entirely until the Special Master says he’s done. How long will that take? Hell, maybe Trump will be president (sic) again by the time he says he’s done. Maybe Merrick Garland will no longer be the Attorney General. Maybe by the time the Special Master is done, the Justice Department will revert back to being the Department of Protecting Donald Trump’s Bulbous Orange Ass.

With a straight face, this judge publicly rejected DOJ’s argument to treat Trump like any other subject of an investigation and issued an opinion that he should receive special treatment. The judge has concerns that there’s a public perception of bias against Trump, but no worries about the perception she’s biased toward him.

I made a comment in yesterday’s blog that the judge may appoint a Trump goon to be the Special Master… someone like Rudy Giuliani, the MyPillow fucker, or Tucker Carlson. Then I thought, that’s a cartoon and I better do it before another cartoonist reads my blog and steals it.

When the Special Master appoints a Republican to the post, expect her to do it with a straight face. Expect Trump to issue a “truth” stating he trusts the Special Master’s judgment. Expect Fox News to praise the appointment. Expect Kevin McCarthy to ejaculate praise all over Twitter for the appointment. When all that happens, that’s when you’ll know we’re fucked.

How can so many Trumpers and MAGAts scream without any evidence that the Justice Department is corrupt and has been politicized but not have any concerns that a Trump-appointed judge just paused an investigation into Donald Trump stealing classified documents and storing them in a Country Club?

With a straight face, these people are hypocrites.

Special Master’s Master


A federal judge intervened yesterday in the case of Donald Trump stealing government documents, many of which are classified, and appointed an independent arbiter, known as a “Special Master,” to review the over 11,000 documents to determine which should be deemed attorney/client privilege and executive privilege.

On paper, this sounds fair. Golly gee wilikers, this will be an independent person who makes sure both sides are treated equally. But it’s not fair. It’s bullshit. This Special Master will choose what material the government can’t use to investigate Donald Trump.

As Sarah Marshall said in the film, “Forgetting Sarah Marshall,” “Bullshit, bullshit, bullshit, bullshit.”

Donald Trump waited two weeks after the FBI served a search warrant on his country club to find stolen government documents. After Trump’s request for a Special Master, the Department of Justice’s response included photos of classified documents (under covers) proving that at the very least, Trump possessed these documents and was obstructing justice by still having them.

How does Donald Trump’s inept lawyers win this ruling when it took them over two weeks to come up with the simple strategy of asking for a Special Master? Easy. They got an inept judge.

The Special Master isn’t needed in this case as most of the documents have already been analyzed. Now, the judge has ordered that none of the material can be used to investigate Trump until the Special Master has finished going over the 11,000 documents. You would think the Special Master would only need to go over documents between Trump and his lawyers, but no. The judge threw a huge wrench into this case.

DOJ can appeal this but that process may take longer than the Special Master’s review. Also, any appeal would be heard by a three-judge panel from the United States Court of Appeals for the 11th Circuit in Atlanta. Of its 11 active judges, six were appointed by… wait for it… Donald Trump. So, when three of its 11 judges go review an appeal to investigate Donald Trump, all three of them may be Trump appointees.

And, if DOJ won an appeal through a Trump-contaminated federal court, Trump could appeal to the Supreme Court, who may or may not take it, but you know they’d take it. There are three Trump appointees on that court along with Ginni Thomas’ husband. This is a bunch of Chancellor Palpatine shit. Mace Windu was right to try to cut his head off.

This judge in Palm Beach ruling in Trump’s favor said she had made her decisions to “ensure at least the appearance of fairness and integrity under the extraordinary circumstances,” while rejecting the Justice Department’s implicit argument that Trump be treated like any other investigative subject.

What would have really ensured the “appearance of fairness and integrity under the extraordinary circumstances” would have been if this Trump-appointed wingnut judge had recused herself. Is she married to Ginni Thomas too?

Trump is not being treated like any other investigative subject. Trump is being treated with privilege. He is literally asking for privileges.

So, who is this judge, Aileen Cannon? Surprise! She’s a Trump appointee.

She’s never served on any bench until she was placed on the Federal District Court for the Southern District of Florida AFTER Trump lost the election. Remember that Mitch McConnell bullshit in rejecting hearings for Merrick Garland in 2016, saying the voters needed a say? In this case, the voters rejected Trump and gave the Senate to the Democratic Party, but Mitch rushed more judges onto federal benches. In case you haven’t been paying attention, Republicans don’t give a flying fuck about the will of the people.

Did you know that since President William McKinley’s 1897 inauguration, Senates have confirmed only 15 nominees of defeated presidents? Here’s another fun fact: Of those 15, 14 were Trump nominees. Mitch McConnell rushed through 14 nominees to federal courts AFTER Trump lost and the people had chosen Joe Biden to be the next president. For fuckers who love to toss around words like “unprecedented,” this was fucking unprecedented.

And naturally, Judge Aileen Cannon is a member of the Federalist Society. This is some Stonecutter bullshit.

Now the question is: Who will Judge Cannon appoint as the Special Master? Donald Trump Jr? Rudy Giuliani? Sidney Powell? Tucker Carlson? The MyPillow Guy? Special Masters are often former judges. Maybe Judge Cannon will pick Judge Jeanine Pirro.

Trump, Mitch McConnell, Rupert Murdoch, and the Federalist Society have set our federal justice system back decades.

Trump Whine


So yesterday, another political cartoonist made a public post rhetorically asking who could have predicted there would be 100 toilet cartoons after the FBI search at Mar-a-Lago, and then he praised himself saying it was he who made that prediction. He failed to mention he was one of the hundred who drew a Wizard of Oz cartoon after the Kansas abortion vote, and three days after to boot.

But the thing is, I’m pretty sure everyone who drew a toilet cartoon was fully aware there would be other toilet cartoons. When I showed my proofreaders yesterday’s cartoon on Monday night, I told them I hoped nobody would do exactly what I did, but I knew there would be a lot of toilet cartoons. A colleague of mine messaged me yesterday morning about another subject but also said, “By the way, I’m going to do a toilet cartoon.” I told him, “Why shouldn’t you?” It was really good too.

Kudos and cookies to every cartoonist who drew on the subject but avoided the toilet concept, but I don’t care. The reason so many of us used the toilet concept despite knowing everyone else would also draw a toilet is that toilets are a part of the story. There was a Trump toilet story the day before the “raid.” It’s too much fun. How in the Hell do you not draw a toilet when a president is destroying and stealing classified documents and government property, and flushing them down a toilet? It’s actually important to document this.

In fact, it’s so much fucking fun, that despite someone looking down their nose at us for drawing toilets, I did it again. It’s too much fun. I could probably write ten more toilet cartoons if you put a gun to my head…or a dirty toilet scrubber. Please don’t.

This brings us to Trump’s whining about the “raid” on his golf resort home. Republicans are outraged and say if the FBI can raid a former president’s (sic) home, then they can come after anyone. Well, yeah.

If you break the law, you can be investigated, prosecuted, and indicted. You can go to prison. It’s comforting that in President Biden’s Justice Department, the law applies to everyone. His own son is being investigated by his own Justice Department.

Republicans are demanding Attorney General Merrick Garland explain and reveal everything immediately, but he doesn’t have to do that. Basically, they want all the evidence from the investigation revealed in order to destroy the investigation. It’s like that time when Republicans controlled the House and Devin Nunes was chair of the committee investigating investigations of Trump and went straight to the White House to inform them that intelligence agencies intercepted his transition team’s communications, and without telling the minority party on the committee.

What they’re not demanding is for Donald Trump to show his copy of the search warrant or the list of items the FBI confiscated. He has both yet he won’t reveal them…like his taxes. Maybe revealing them would destroy the Republican narrative.

Marco Rubio and other assorted goons have tied this to the 87,000 new IRS “agents” provided by the passing of the Inflation Reduction Act. It’s the same tactic used by warning if Donald Trump can’t get away with breaking the law, then you can’t either. The increase in hiring tens of thousands of new IRS employees is a great talking point for the midterm elections, but the truth is, they’re hired to increase enforcement of people just like Donald Trump. The hiring of 87,000 new IRS employees has NOTHING to do with a search warrant being delivered on Donald Trump.

Most of all, Trump’s defenders don’t know what they’re talking about, which is par for the course at MAGA-Lardo. They don’t know what the FBI was looking for or what it’s connected to. A Trump goon who was part of the Trump administration despite never being qualified for anything other than being creepy, Kash Patel, says Trump declassified everything he took. But, did he? Also, the documents he took still didn’t belong to him. He stole 15 boxes of government documents, classified or declassified. They’re all screaming from a position of ignorance.

Marjorie Taylor Greene is screaming about “defunding” the FBI. Remember when they were using “defund the police” against Joe Biden even though he’s never been a supporter of that position? Are they still doing that? Yeah, probably. So much for the law-and-order party.

The goons screaming for accountability and explanations from Biden’s Justice Department were A-OK with Donald Trump trying to turn the Justice Department into his personal goon squad. If you want an example of the Justice Department conducting political investigations then look no further than the Durham Investigation. It’s like those fucking Benghazi hearings that never found anything but noise.

What we do know is that judges don’t issue search warrants willy-nilly like Trump pardons for Trump goons. They don’t move to search the homes of former presidents (sic) as fast as Josh Hawley high-tailing it from angry white nationalist mobs he instigated.

We also know that the judge who granted this search warrant was appointed by, wait for it… (you see it coming, don’t you? Yeah, I think you do)…Donald J. Trump. Oopsies.

Republicans are upset that Donald Trump is being held accountable. Some have even asked, What has he ever done that could be considered illegal?

Just off the top of my head, sedition, sexual assault, cheating on taxes, lying on loan applications, housing discrimination, trying to steal an election, election fraud, starting a riot, committing a coup attempt, asking government officials to find votes that don’t exist, asking election officials to overturn elections, stealing shit, destroying government documents, using government resources to extort foreign presidents, trying to install fake electors, and violating the emoluments clause. I know I left a bunch of stuff out.

Despite all the GOP outrage, it’s a good thing that the law applies to Donald Trump just like it applies to the rest of us. I mean, we’re getting there, right?

And on the day Donald Trump does go to prison, I want to see Dora the Explorer outside jumping and singing, “We did it! We did it! Yay! We did it!”

Get Your Goon On


What did we learn from yesterday’s live hearing of the January 6 House Committee investigating Donald Trump’s failed coup attempt? We learned Donald Trump is a corrupt criminal on the levels of a dime-store mobster who believes he’s above the law. A goon is gonna goon. Wait, we already knew that. But, we learned a particular detail of his gooning.

At the end of yesterday’s hearing, vice chair and Republican Liz Cheney dropped the juicy little nugget that Donald Trump called a witness. This occurred after the last hearing on June 28 with former White House aide Cassidy Hutchinson.

Cheney said the witness has yet to appear in the hearings and didn’t take the call but alerted their lawyer, who told the committee. Cheney said the committee passed along the information to the Justice Department.

“We will take any effort to influence witness testimony very seriously,” she said.

Trump’s response was to have one of his spokesgoons issue a kinda-sorta denial. The goon tweeted, “The media has become pawns of the Unselect Committee. Liz Cheney continues to traffic in innuendos and lies that go unchallenged, unconfirmed, but repeated as fact because the narrative is more important than the truth.”

First off, Mr. Goon, how do you know it hasn’t been confirmed? As for it going unchallenged, that’s Trump’s fault. How many people has Donald Trump told not to cooperate? How many Republicans who were a part of the coup attempt have testified? How many of the congressional goons who sought pardons from Trump have cooperated? A goon’s gotta gaslight.

The reason this is important is that it’s witness tampering. That is about as illegal as say…calling up election officials and telling them to give you 11,780 votes that don’t exist so you can win an election. We know that Trump does like to call people and extort them. Hello, Ukraine. We also know he likes to use burner phones and flush documents down toilets.

It was revealed during the June 28 hearing that other witnesses have been contacted by Trump goons with one saying (according to Cheney), “What they said to me is as long as I continue to be a team player, they know I’m on the right team. I’m doing the right thing. I’m protecting who I need to protect, you know, I’ll continue to stay in good graces in Trump World. And they have reminded me a couple of times that Trump does read transcripts.”

Well, at the very least, he has the transcripts read to him. This is the guy who couldn’t read daily briefing materials unless they contained photos of him.

So, what reason would Donald Trump have to call a witness? His best defense at this point is that it was a butt dial. He does have a lot of butt and it wouldn’t be the first thing that could be blamed on Donald Trump’s giant orange stupid ass.

But isn’t it awesome that during an investigation to determine if Donald Trump committed crimes (he did), he commits even more crimes? Yes. Yes, it is awesome. What would be even more awesome would be if Donald Trump goes to prison for a very long time, like for the rest of his life. It is possible that Donald Trump is indicted for crimes committed trying to derail the investigation. Remember, Richard Nixon didn’t resign because he planned or initiated the break-in at Watergate. He got caught in the cover-up.

Sedition and witness tampering is serious business. Donald Trump and his goons believe they are above the law. The entire Trump family believes they’re royalty. They also believe that if Trump says it, then his saying it makes it true. During the Nixon administration, it was believed that it was not illegal if the president does it, no matter what that “it” is. The Trump administration had the same belief, despite Watergate proving Nixon wrong. Perhaps Donald Trump believed his status as president (sic) was above that of other presidents. It wasn’t just being president (sic) that made Trump better than everyone else. It’s that Trump believes being Trump makes him better than everyone else. But this is the moron who believed being president (sic) and a Trump made him immune to COVID.

Hopefully, Donald Trump isn’t immune to the law.

Goons gotta go to prison.

Grifter Recession


Republicans have spent the past three years or so worried about how much money Hunter Biden, the president’s son has made and where he’s made it. For the most part, all they have are conspiracy theories. They’ve been promoting a story about a supposed abandoned laptop of his while they can’t honestly say what’s on it that’s incriminating. They claim President Biden was in on the “corruption” as well despite the lack of any trails to it. They even complain about the money he made between 2017 and 2021, when Joe Biden wasn’t in office. But, they’re very quiet about Trump’s goon son-in-law Jared raking in $2 billion from the Saudis after his stint in Trump’s administration, where he spent most of his time cuddling with bone-saw aficionado Mohammed bin Salman.

Republicans claim that Hunter Biden never would have been put on the board of a Ukrainian gas company if he wasn’t the vice-president’s son, and they’re probably right. But, they ignore that Jared Kushner worked in the White House without any qualifications and actually took foreign bailouts for his businesses WHILE he was “serving” in the administration. It sounds like he only served himself.

Lately, Republicans have been leaving comments on my cartoons on this blog, Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, Instagram, TikTok, etc, claiming Hillary Clinton and her campaign were fined for creating the “Russia hoax.” The truth is, the campaign was fined, not Hillary Clinton, and not for creating any hoax. The Clinton 2016 campaign was fined for how they labeled campaign expenses. They claimed the funds that paid for the Steele Dossier were “legal” expenses when they were not, though the payment did go to a law firm. It’s an issue of semantics. But as you can tell, Republicans don’t really care about the actual facts. For that matter, Republicans don’t actually care about corruption.

It’s like when they accuse Democrats of election fraud while Donald Trump is threatening Georgia’s secretary of state to “find him the votes.” Yeah, they don’t really care about lawbreaking either. Republicans only care about “who” is doing the wrongdoing.

All during the Trump administration, Donald Trump grifted. He grifted the taxpayers and violated the Emoluments Clause. He grifted foreign nations. He grifted his own supporters. Today, he’s still grifting taxpayers by living at his resorts (who do you think pays for his protective detail’s lodging?), but he’s mostly grifting his supporters. The thing is, his supporters are so sycophantic, that they’ll deny it while continuing to give him their money. They want punishment for sloppy accounting by the Clinton Campaign but they don’t want any accounting from Trump.

And they think by giving Donald Trump their money, that he’ll swoop in and end inflation, lower gas prices, and fix the markets and supply shortages, ignoring that Donald Trump is a huge part of why we’re where we are today.

First off, gas prices and supply chain shortages are international. President Joe Biden doesn’t control fuel prices in Sweden. The economy is still recovering from the pandemic that Donald Trump ignored. And gas prices keep climbing while oil companies are raking in record profits. Republicans aren’t asking the oil companies to sacrifice, are they?

Trump supporters think Donald Trump can fix it because in 2016 he said, “Only I can fix it.” But, fix what? Donald Trump has never fixed anything. Donald Trump destroys, He doesn’t create or repair. How many of his businesses have failed? Have you been to a Trump casino lately? He also inherited a booming economy created by President Barack Obama and guess what he did after that? He fucked it up.

When Donald Trump left office, he left with three million fewer jobs than when he came into office. Jimmy Carter didn’t do that. Trump left office with the worst job numbers since Herbert Hoover, who, like Donald Trump, is also rated as one of our worst presidents. You really have to be a cultist to want the guy back who created the worst economy since Herbert Hoover.

And you really have to be a sycophant to give Donald Trump money. I mean, who buys $15 straws? People who want straws with “MAGA” on them, that’s who. Spending $15 on straws that aren’t made from paper is really owning the libs. But guess what. This lib doesn’t care how you suck because you still suck.

Now, here’s the irony: Donald Trump is stealing money on the Big Lie the election was stolen. Naturally, Trump supporters are suckers for this. They’re the only ones who don’t see the irony.

In addition to proving Donald Trump and his cohorts tried to steal an election they knew they lost, the January 6 Committee has detailed how the Grifter-in-Chief used the lie to raise over $250 million from his MAGAts. Some say it’s closer to $400 million.

The $250 million Trump raised from his supporters was supposed to go into the “Official Election Defense Fund.” You may wanna sit down for this because it’s oh so not shocking at all, but the “Official Election Defense Fund” doesn’t exist. It’s like the Trump plan to replace Obamacare, or Trump’s infrastructure plan, or the promise he made not to play golf while president. Wait, I think that last one did exist but he wiped his ass with it.

No, there is no such thing as the “Official Election Defense Fund.” Instead of spending that money to defend the election Trump lost, or reinstate him, or whatever other bullshit they claimed to be fixing, the money went to Tump’s “Save America” super PAC, which was created shortly after the election. Committee member Zoe Lofgren has referred to it as the “big rip-off.”

Since the creation of Save America up until last April, the Super PAC has spent $4 million on Republican candidates’ campaigns. I don’t know if it’s worse that the money wasn’t supposed to go there or how greedy Trump has been with it.

New York State Attorney General Letitia James tweeted, “The new details revealed tonight related to January 6 are disturbing. It’s my duty to investigate allegations of fraud or potential misconduct in New York. This incident is no exception.” And it’s just one more incident. New York state has already dismantled Trump University and the Trump Foundation (a fake charity) for being outlets for Trump’s corruption. As Trump’s former fixer Michael Cohen said, “Trump has made it very clear that he is grifting off of the American people.”

Lofgren pointed out, “If the litigation had stopped on Dec. 14, there would have been no fight to defend the election and no clear path to continue to raise millions of dollars.” The Big Lie isn’t just to steal an election and turn America into a fascist nation led by a Cheeto Potentate. It’s a money-raking scheme.

Supporters send Trump money to “defend” the election Trump knows he lost. They think that money is going into a defense fund that doesn’t actually exist, but instead goes into his Super PAC which then funnels the money into pro-Trump organizations which then spends much of it on Trump, Republican Party, and other assorted events hosted at…wait for it…Trump properties, where I’m sure they get really good rates for renting the convention rooms.

At one “Stop the Steal” rally funded by Turning Point Action, a pro-Trump group, Kimberly Guilfoyle, Don Jr’s girlfriend who’s probably best known as the screaming banshee from the 2020 GOP convention, was paid $60,000 for a three-minute speech introducing Don Jr. Turning Point is arguing that this money didn’t come from Trump’s fundraising, but from their own, while not explaining why they felt the need to give a screaming Republican banshee $60,000 for three minutes of ear-piercing banality.

Apparently, Trump corruption can be sexually transmitted.

If Donald Trump admits he lost the election or at least stops saying it was stolen, the money will stop coming in. I predict investigations into Trump’s corruption will continue through the next decade. I also think Trump corruption will continue throughout the next decade.

Cash and Coups


During most of the time Republicans were screaming about Hunter Biden’s laptop without any substance to speak of, Jared Kushner was sitting on top of $2 billion received from the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia. Yes, that’s the same crown prince who ordered the execution of a Washington Post journalist. Also, while MAGAts were screaming about Hunter Biden, there was the existence of texts from Donald Trump Jr. to Trump chief-of-staff Mark Meadows about stealing the election before the election was called.

Republicans have been screaming about this laptop bullshit for over two years without providing any substance as to why it’s important. So far, the bulk of their argument is that since it exists, it means there was corruption from Hunter Biden which means there’s corruption from President Joe Biden. They also say there’s evidence of Hunter using drugs, which we already know, and that the laptop has images of Hunter having sex with minors, which is not true.

What is true is there’s an email from a business contact in Ukraine thanking Hunter for introducing him to Vice President Joe Biden at a dinner with a dozen other people in public. There’s another email, after the Obama presidency from a Chinese business contact, that mentions giving Joe Biden a cut, and there’s a third email from Hunter saying Joe Biden wants nothing to do with the deal, which never got off the ground. A lot of this is in code, but that’s all they have.

Photos have been posted that Republicans claim show Hunter smoking crack, but Hunter’s drug use and addictions are public knowledge. Hunter and his father have been open about this. Also, how do you know it’s crack he’s smoking? Photos of someone smoking crack or marijuana are just photos of someone smoking. They don’t fly in court. The claim that child pornography is on the laptop comes straight from InfoWars. Also, keep in mind that this laptop was in the possession of Rudy Giuliani.

One thing that is a fact is Hunter Biden was never a member of the White House staff in the Obama or Biden administrations or ever given the responsibility of international diplomacy. But Jared Kushner was.

Jared Kushner, along with his wife, was on the staff of the Trump White House (sic). In case you forgot, Jared is married to Ivanka, Donald Trump’s daughter. In case you’re a Republican, that makes Jared Donald Trump’s son-in-law.

Jared was put in charge of a lot of stuff, like immigration and denying states medical equipment during the COVID pandemic. He was also involved with foreign policy, outside the boundaries of the State Department which frustrated the entire department. Part of Jared’s job was to build a relationship with Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman of Saudi Arabia.

Jared and MBS, the Crown Prince, liked to communicate through WhatsApp, a phone app that’s encrypted and is an excellent way to talk in secret so your conversations are NOT archived, as required by the Presidential Records Act. Basically, it’s a great way to talk privately when you’re involved in some sketchy shady shit. Jared is a big fan of back-channel communications and asked the Russians to create a backchannel to talk to the Trump administration (sic).

The Crown Prince is not a nice guy. He ordered the murder of Jamal Khashoggi, a Saudi journalist under the protection of the United States and employed by The Washington Post. Khashoggi was murdered inside Saudi Arabia’s Turkish embassy where they dismembered him with a bone saw. Jared, who probably sees himself as a prince, is buddy-buddy with the Crown Prince, a ruthless person who orders murders. Jared helped broker $110 billion in weapon sales to Saudi Arabia over the next decade and defended the Kingdom from congressional criticism over its involvement in the Yemeni Civil War and the murder of Khashoggi.

During this time, Jared’s failing 5th Avenue property, 666, was bailed out by a Canadian asset company that signed a 99-year lease and paid a near-century’s worth of rent upfront. This saved Kushner from defaulting on a mortgage he couldn’t afford which would have brought all his debtors down on him. One of the owners of the Canadian asset company is the nation Qatar. The deal came through right after Jared helped negotiate the end of Saudi Arabia’s blockade of Qatar. I’m sure the timing was just a coincidence. Qatar even denied they knew it was going down even though it was widely reported and Jared’s company had sough investment from them before. But the Canadian company was a much better attempt at hiding their involvement.

Jared had financial involvement with multiple foreign nations before Trump became president (sic). That should have automatically disqualified him from working in the White House. It took over a year for him to receive a security clearance as he had to reapply three times as he kept omitting important business and relationship details on his applications. Remembering stuff is hard. Finally, Trump, as president (sic), ordered that Jared and Ivanka both be given security clearances despite what the background checks found.

Jared’s newly formed private equity firm, Affinity Partners, received $2 billion from a fund led by the Crown Prince six months after he left the White House. The Saudi fund’s advisory board objected to the investment. According to the minutes of the meeting, the board cited “the inexperience of the Affinity Fund management”; the possibility the kingdom would be responsible for “the bulk of the investment and risk”; due diligence on the fledgling firm’s operations that found them “unsatisfactory in all aspects”; a proposed asset management fee that “seems excessive”; and “public relations risks” from Jared’s prior role as a senior adviser to his daddy-in-law, President (sic) Donald Trump.

Basically, the advisory board cited that Jared had zero experience in this sort of business enterprise, is inept, is shady as fuck, and that eventually, the Saudi fund would end up eating its investment because it fucked up and got into business with a Trump.

Mohammad bin Salman ignored the advice and invested $2 billion anyway. This was back in July of 2021 and we just now finding out about it. The $2 billion probably isn’t all from MBS, as it’s a fund, but that amount is probably nothing to him anyway as reports put his net worth between $10-18 billion. He’ll be worth a lot more when he’s king.

This deal is not illegal. Jared had a right to do business with foreign nations after serving in a presidential administration. But, it sure does seem like a payoff of some sort for services already rendered. You would need testimony and documents to prove this was discussed while Jared was in the Trump administration and remember, he and MBS used WhatsApp.

There were tons of sketchy foreign deals with Javanka during the Trump presidency, like that time Ivanka was granted three trademarks in China the very same day she and daddy Dingdong had dinner with the Chinese president. What another coinkydink. And if photos had come out of Ivanka smoking crack during the dinner, Republicans would still be talking about Hunter Biden’s laptop.

Steve Baby FishMouth Mnuchin, Treasury Secretary for Trump, also received $1 billion from the Saudi fund.

Before the Trump administration (sic) was over, Donald Trump Jr was texting Mark Meadows about how his father could stay in power despite losing the election. Before there was a coup attempt, Jr was suggesting a coup attempt. In November 2020, before the election was called for President Biden but while it was still in the air, Jr texted Meadows on how they could overturn the results. They knew they were going to lose the election.

This included having Republican-controlled state Houses discard the electors legally won by Joe Biden, and putting forward “Trump electors” in their place. Referring to recounts and audits, he texted, “It’s very simple. We have multiple paths We control them all.”

He was also suggesting they at least create enough confusion that the election was never called or confirmed by Congress, then have the House vote for the president by state delegations. Even though the House was Democratic Party controlled, Republicans had the most state delegations.

Looking at how much money the Trumps were making off the presidency, it’s no wonder they tried to steal the 2020 election. The Trump presidency may be over but the Trump Crime Family is still in business. But hey, let’s keep talking about Hunter’s laptop.

Trumping Burning Flushing


Donald Trump claims he doesn’t know what a burner phone is. His former National Security Adviser, John Bolton, said he knows exactly what a “boner” phone is and they had many conversations regarding the administration using “boner” phones.

Maybe that’s the truth. Donald Trump thought he and Bolton were talking about “boner” phones and not “burner” phones. I can honestly tell you that I don’t know what a “boner” phone is. Is it a cellphone used exclusively to send people photos of your junk? Does Brett Favre have one? I guess that would be a boner phone you’d want to burn.

White House logs, not to be confused with a log you’d take a photo of with your boner phone, reveal that on January 6, 2021, while the Capitol building was being attacked by Trump’s white nationalist terrorist goons, Donald Trump didn’t call anyone for seven hours and 38 minutes. Despite what the logs say that have been turned over to the House committee investigating Trump’s terrorist attack, he called House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, Vice-President (sic) Mike Pence (who the crowd was trying to hang with the noose they brought), and Senator and noted dumbass Tommy Tuberville. Donald Trump was calling people but he wasn’t using the White House phones, probably because he didn’t want any of his calls on record.

I’m not talking about the calls to McCarthy, Pence, or Senator Dumbass. I’m talking about the calls Donald Trump made that we don’t know about. Who else did he call? What was he organizing? Did he call the goon counsel set up in a nearby hotel that had planned out and orchestrated the attack? Was he calling Congressman Jim Jordan for Jordan to later say, “I don’t know when we talked”? Was he calling Miss Chloe, the 1-800 pyschic to see if she thought he’d be reinstated? Was he calling to see if the terrorists had enough rope to hang Mike Pence? Was he calling Putin to tell him he’s a genius? Was he calling more secretaries of state to tell them to “find the votes”? Was he calling Mar-a-Lago to tell them to install the new MAGA-load power toilets so he wouldn’t have to flush classified documents and criminal evidence 15 times? Maybe Donald Trump was calling one of those places that cashes checks, gives out payday loans with a 400 percent interest rate, gives out cash for car titles, and sells burner phones…so he could order more burner phones.

Remember that Jared Kushner went to the Russians to establish a back-channel for secret communications the CIA couldn’t track. Do you think Jared did that on his own? It’s the same idea as using burner phones.

A burner phone is a cheap phone that anyone can get. You don’t need a credit card to secure the account. You buy the phone, the number, and the minutes. It’s something criminals use to organize crimes, then throw away. In 2018, The New York Times reported that Donald Trump had as many as three iPhones at a time to contact people…that were not connected to the government. That means these things weren’t even secured and every time Donald Trump was using one, someone nefarious was listening in…in addition to nefarious Trump and the nefarious person he was calling. And Republicans lost their shit over Hillary’s server.

Donald Trump is corrupt. While conservatives are losing their minds over a laptop that may or may not belong to Hunter Biden that they have no clue to what its relevance to anything is, they forget that Donald Trump is a crook. Oh, Hunter Biden made deals in Moscow? Donald Trump made deals in Moscow and even attempted to bribe Vladimir Putin. Oh, you don’t like that Hunter got jobs and deals based on his father’s office? Jared Kushner got bail outs from foreign nations for his shitty buildings in Manhattan while Trump was president and he was playing Secretary of State. Hunter Biden is being investigated for not paying taxes, and NOT being investigated for being a laptop owner. Donald Trump is also being investigated for not paying taxes. Donald Trump is also being investigated for a lot of other devious shit.

Donald Trump fabricated the values of his property for loans and in tax filings. He would literally lie about how many floors a building had, hoping nobody would get in the elevator and count the buttons.

Donald Trump ran a fake charity which he used as a political campaign tool. The man took other people’s donations to his charity and bought souvenirs for himself, like paintings of himself. Trump has been banned from operating a charity in the state of New York because of the corruption with the Trump Foundation. The Clinton Foundation has never been found to be corrupt or dishonest in any way and is still operating and functioning as an actual legitimate charity and not a slush fund for its namesake.

Donald Trump ran a fake university, was sued, and later settled to pay his former “students” $25 million, which he did not pay. A friend of his, a business partner in his Las Vegas hotel, paid the $25 million. I’m not aware of why someone giving the president (sic) of the United States $28 million (I guess that extra $3 million was a bonus) isn’t currently being investigated because it sounds like a bribe. Keep in mind, Jimmy Carter sold his peanut farm after winning the presidency to avoid the appearance of conflict. If Donald Trump had owned a peanut farm, every Saudi diplomat and Republican would be eating a shit ton of peanuts.

Speaking of, Donald Trump kept all his businesses operating, which of course received tons of foreign investments. His hotel in Washington was the hot spot for Republicans and foreign diplomats. One of his cabinet members tried to buy a mattress from the Trump Hotel because it’s apparently the only place in Washington, D.C. where a person can get a decent used mattress that thousands of goons had slept on. William Barr once rented the banquet room of the Trump Hotel for a party, while he was the Attorney General. Rudy Giuliani did most of his goon plotting with Igor and Lev at the Trump Hotel bar. Trump tried to prevent the site of the FBI building from becoming a hotel because it would compete against his hotel. Also, the Trump Hotel is on government property Trump is leasing, which made Donald Trump his own landlord. But I’m sure there was never a conflict of interest.

Donald Trump played a lot of golf at a lot of resorts while president. Of course, he owned each resort he went to which forced the government to pay him for him to stay at his own resorts. The guy even charged the Secret Service rental fees for golf carts so they could protect him. He literally charged the government to protect him. He’s still doing it today as he hasn’t refused Secret Service protection.

Remember how Trump supporters boasted that he donated his salary? Of course, he was also raking in millions from staying at his own properties. He raked in millions from foreigners and Republicans staying at his properties (the Saudis would rent rooms at various Trump Hotels but not stay in them). He’s raking in millions because every dollar donated to his campaigns goes right back into the Trump Organization because every campaign event is held at a Trump property. Is Trump donating back his government pension? I haven’t heard that he is. Has he refused the office allowance given to former presidents (sic)? No. Do you know what the limit is on the office expense? There isn’t one. We’re still giving Donald Trump a blank check.

I guarantee that when Donald Trump builds his presidential (sic) library, it will be on property he owns.

On top of all that, we still don’t know where all the money went that was donated to the Trump Inaugural Committee. It didn’t cost $107 million for a tractor parade and Three Doors Down.

Do you hear the idiots upset over Hunter’s laptop asking anything about Donald Trump taking government documents to his golf resort with him? Do you hear them ask about him flushing documents? Do you hear them asking about Trump’s use of burner phones?

There’s not a lot John Bolton has ever been right about, but other than the boner part, he had it right when he said, “Criminal gangs in the United States use burner phones. Terrorists around the world use boner…burner phones.”

Donald Trump is a criminal, his organization and family are his criminal gang, and he’s a terrorist leader who ordered a terrorist attack against the government. We need to find the evidence from his burner phones so we can gather the evidence around his terrorist attack and send the boner-head to prison.

Favors And War Crimes


Just in case you haven’t been paying attention during the past decade or so, Donald Trump is a vile disgusting racist grifting narcissistic conman who puts himself first before other people and his own nation. And if you have been paying attention and are still making excuses for him, then you’re vile and disgusting too, but keep reading. MAGAts need to read what I write more than anyone else.

Donald Trump is a racist. He’s a sexist. He’s a bully. He’s a thief. He’s a con artist. This man ran a fake university and a fake charity while denying rental opportunities to minorities, refusing to pay contractors he made business deals with while boasting about sexually assaulting women, and desiring to date his own daughter. This man has cheated on every person in his life, from business partners to girlfriends to wives to the nation he promised to protect and defend. He spent his four years in the White House grifting taxpayers, diplomats, and campaign contributors. The man demands loyalty while giving none. Let’s not forget he told over 30,000 lies in a four-year span.

During the 2016 presidential campaign, Donald Trump attempted to bribe Vladimir Putin by giving him the penthouse in a Moscow Trump Tower in exchange for Putin’s approval of the tower’s construction. That is illegal.

Also during the 2016 presidential campaign, Donald Trump publicly asked Putin to assist his campaign and give him valuable resources. That is illegal. Donald Trump asked Russia to release 30,000 lost emails from Hillary Clinton. Donald Trump later said he was joking but Russia started hacking into the computers of the Democratic National Committee and the Clinton Campaign that same day.

During the 2016 campaign, Donald Trump accepted Russia’s assistance by reading their hacked emails during campaign rallies.

During the 2016 campaign, Donald Trump’s presidential campaign invited Russian lobbyists claiming to have dirt on Hillary Clinton to their campaign headquarters in Trump Tower on Fifth Avenue in Manhattan. Attending that meeting on behalf of Donald Trump was idiot son number one, Donald Trump Jr, idiot son-in-law Jared Kushner, and Paul Manafort, the idiot campaign manager, who had been a campaign strategist for Ukraine’s former pro-Russia president. The Trump campaign’s defense here is that they didn’t get anything good from the Russians which is like saying it’s OK to rob a bank if the safe turns out to be empty.

Donald Trump also claimed the meeting was about Americans adopting Russian children. He later admitted it was political and opposition research after he was busted. It’s illegal to take campaign contributions from foreigners and especially foreign governments. The Trump campaign was seeking campaign material to help Trump win the election.

An offer was made to Donald Trump Jr. from a Russian oligarch, which was delivered by a mutual friend. The friend, Rob Goldstone, emailed that the Crown Prosecutor of Russia “offered to provide the Trump campaign with some official documents and information that would incriminate Hillary and her dealings with Russia and would be very useful to your father.”

Donald Trump Jr’s reply was, “I love it.”

In 2017, Trump Jr released a statement using the Russian adoption bullshit explanation. It was later revealed that Donald Trump Sr, who had denied knowledge of the meeting, wrote the statement.

During the 2016 campaign, George Papadopoulos was hired by the Trump campaign as an adviser. Within two weeks, he was approached by someone with Russian contacts explaining the Russian government wanted to give him stolen emails from Hillary Clinton and John Podesta. Papadopoulos was invited to a meeting. He went to that meeting. The Russians he met told him “we are all very excited by the possibility of a good relationship with Mr. Trump.” He emailed at least seven campaign officials about these contacts and was encouraged to fly to Russia to obtain the Clinton emails.

Carter Page was an adviser to the Trump campaign who flew to Russia to give a speech and later lied about meeting members of that nation’s government. Donald Trump and Jeff Sessions described Page as a coffee boy for the campaign and they had no knowledge he was going to Russia. But campaign coordinator Corey Lewandowski had approved the trip and campaign co-chairman Sam Clovis asked Page to sign a non-disclosure agreement about the trip.
The Steel Dossier alleges that Carter Page was promised up to 19 percent of a Russian oil conglomerate if Trump was elected and he could eliminate sanctions placed on Russian oil by President Obama and Congress in 2012. Republicans in the House were outraged…that the FBI was investigating Carter Page during this time. Trump claimed the investigation was Obama wiretapping Trump Tower. It was not. Even William Barr, Trump’s goon Attorney General, claimed this was Obama spying on the Trump Campaign. Again, it was not.

Also during the campaign, Trump Jr. and Jared Kushner were offered election help from Saudi Arabia and other Gulf states. They never said no. In fact, after the campaign and before the inauguration, Kushy went to the Russian embassy and proposed they create a backchannel to communicate so U.S. intelligence wouldn’t hear about all the treasonony shenanigans they were up to.

Trump supporters excused Donald Trump’s involvement with everything claiming he didn’t know this or he didn’t know that, or everything was done by other people, and at the very worst, he was just joking. Whether it’s treason, promising to pay for services, provide an education you paid for, spending your donation on charity and not on himself, replacing Obamacare with “something better,” Crafting an infrastructure plan, building a wall and making Mexico pay for it, never having time for golf, or grabbing someone by the pussy, Trump is just joking.

When Donald Trump told Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky “I want you to do us a favor” in 2019, he wasn’t joking. Donald Trump dangled an invite to the White House and withheld military aid to Ukraine in exchange for Zelensky to announce an investigation into Hunter Biden’s business dealings in that nation.

Trump explained when he said “Do us a favor,” the “us” wasn’t him, but the United States of America. But, it’s hard to understand how announcing an investigation was doing anything beneficial for the United States…unless Trump believed his reelection was a favor for the United States.

The military aid he was withholding had already been approved by Congress for Ukraine so it could defend itself on the off chance that Russia would invade that nation someday. Let me know if you hear anything about that.

Donald Trump asked a foreign nation to help his campaign. He used government resources in doing so. Both are illegal. Today, the military aid Donald Trump used as extortion is being used by Ukraine to stop Vladimir Putin from killing their children.

Donald Trump was impeached for this act. Senator Susan Collins voted against impeachment saying Trump had “learned his lesson.” Yesterday, Donald Trump asked Vladimir Putin to help his 2024 presidential campaign. Donald Trump did learn a lesson which is that he can do anything illegal and Republicans won’t lift a finger to punish him. He also learned his supporters will defend any lawbreaking he does.

In a new interview, Donald Trump asked Vladimir Putin to release information regarding alleged dealings between eastern European oligarchs and Hunter Biden. These guys can not get over Hunter Biden. Did Hunter Biden invite Trump to prom, who then went and bought a pretty dress and waited on the front porch all night just for Hunter never to show up, who was probably already at the dance banging the prom queen? But I bet Trump did look pretty in that dress.

And hey, if we’re not going to vote for someone because his kids are goons, we don’t need foreign dirt on the Trump kids.

Trump has claimed that Hunter Biden received millions of dollars from the wife of Moscow’s late mayor, Yury Luzhkov. Trump said, “She gave him $3.5 million so now I would think Putin would know the answer to that. I think he should release it.”

Trump might want to be careful asking Putin to release anything because doing so while with the distraction of bombing Ukrainian civilians might make the Russian president release the wrong information. The next thing you, we all get to see the pee-pee tape. Is there a pee-pee tape? As Trump said, “I think Putin would know the answer to that.”

Also, Trump is leaving out that he himself sought to do business with the mayor of Moscow. Remember that entire Trump Tower thing where he tried to bribe Putin? Yeah, Putin knows about that too.

Keep in mind that Trump is so vile, that after calling Putin a “genius” for his war strategy, he’s now asking the Russian dictator for a favor while he’s bombing apartments, malls, hospitals, churches, playgrounds, schools, and baby hospitals. Maybe for Trump, Vladimir Putin can be a multitasker.

Donald Trump has not sent a condemnation to Vladimir Putin for his war crimes. All Trump has sent Putin is a request for a political favor. Maybe it’s not too late for that penthouse.

Narcissist Donald Trump doesn’t care if children are dying whether it’s from Vladimir Putin murdering them through his war crimes or from Trump’s immigration policies.

Putin is currently taking a blood bath and Trump is handing him the rubber ducky while scrubbing his back.

I’ll end this the way I started it: If you’re still defending and supporting Donald Trump, you’re vile and disgusting.

Trump Turdlings


CjonesRGB02212022

A New York state judge issued a ruling Thursday that Donald Trump, Donald Trump Jr, and Ivanka Trump must sit down and face questions from investigators over potential bank fraud, tax dodging, and shady real estate values. The judge wrote in his order that they must also turn over documents, those that haven’t been flushed yet, and the three turds must sit for depositions, probably in chairs, within the next 21 days. In case you’re a Republican, 21 days is three weeks.

The Trumps are also facing other investigations, criminal and civil, in Manhattan, Washington, D.C, and Atlanta. The Trumps don’t believe they should have to provide testimony, documents, or be held accountable for anything because they’re royalty and they smell better than us lowly commoners.

New York’s attorney general Letitia James has a civil investigation that’s been going on since 2020 and she claims to have “significant evidence of financial fraud.” Eric Trump has already been forced to testify. When Eric did testify, he invoked his Fifth Amendment right over 500 times. Remember when his father claimed anyone who had to invoke the Fifth was lying and probably a member of the mafia? Yeah, good times.

Trump and his turdlings have been smearing James to distract from the case. She responded by documenting how the Trump Organization has, allegedly, faked the value of at least six of its New York state properties. Last week, the Trump Organization’s longtime outside accounting firm, Mazars, ditched them as a client stating they can’t trust the documents the Trump Organization has given them. This is yet another example of someone close to Trump saying you can’t trust him. Duh.

The state’s civil investigation is also linking up with the Manhattan District Attorney’s criminal investigation into alleged tax dodging and financial fraud by the Trump Organization.

Trump, Ivanka, and Jr. will be forced to testify about how so many family real estate development projects and properties had wildly fluctuating values that seemed high whenever they needed loans but low whenever it came time to pay taxes.

As the great John Fogerty sang:
Some folks are born silver spoon in hand
Lord, don’t they help themselves, yeah.
But when the taxman comes to the door
The house look a like a rummage sale

During the two-hour court hearing over the decision to force the Trumps to testify, part of their lawyer’s argument that they shouldn’t have to is because Hillary Clinton spied on Donald Trump. Shockingly, that lawyer wasn’t Sidney Powell, Rudy Giuliani, the MyPillow Guy, or Mr. Hanky.

Before the hearing, Eric tweeted, “On Thursday, our team will be in front of a New York Judge outlining the blatantly unethical behavior of @TishJames the NY Attorney General. There are 81 pages of videos, tweets & fundraising solicitations (some as recent as two weeks ago) in our lawsuit for the judge to see.”

It didn’t work.

Hopefully, the family that goons together goes to prison together.
