Trump Organization

Which Corruption?


Last week, a Manhattan jury found the Trump Organization guilty on 17 criminal counts stemming from a tax-dodging executive-compensation scheme. The company would pay executives with apartments, cars, tuition, etc, and not pay taxes on the lavish gifts. Former chief financial officer Allen Weisselberg, the scheme’s chief beneficiary, pleaded guilty and agreed to testify against the business. This is a criminal conviction but you can’t throw a company into prison. Instead, the Trump Organization will probably have to pay over $1.5 million in fines which will be a small pittance if the company is actually worth billions. We don’t know the true value of the company since it’s something Trump hides, like his own finances.

Naturally, this doesn’t touch Donald Trump personally and probably only hurts his feelings. He has called it a “witch hunt.”

The Trump Organization, which Trump inherited from his racist father, and headquartered on 5th Avenue, is the head that controls Trump’s businesses that includes real estate, golf courses, hotels, marketing, licensing his name, the TV show The Apprentice, and a lot of the stuff that doesn’t exist anymore, like the casinos, wine, steaks, airline, board games, fashion (you too can look like a chump, I mean Trump), magazines, etc. But talking about Trump corruption is like talking about a woman he sexually assaulted. You have to ask, “Which one?”

Sure, the Trump Organization is corrupt, and a jury said so. But what about all the other incidents of Trump corruption? They’re too numerous to mention, but let’s take a little stab at it, which you can do with a Trump Steak Knife for only $79.99, which can also come in handy for stabbing former friends in the back.

There’s that time in 1990 when one of Trump’s failing Atlantic City casinos couldn’t make a bond payment, so Fred Trump, taking time away from being a scumlord and refusing to rent apartments to black people, bought over $3 million in chips from that casino without placing a bet. That could be an unreported loan or gift.

There’s the Trump Foundation which was Trump’s charity that he never contributed money to. Instead, he used it to purchase gifts for himself and to coordinate donations with presidential campaign events. A New York court later put it out of operation and banned Trump, Dumbass Jr, Eric, and Ivanka from ever operating a charity in the state again.

Trump University was a fake university that was sued by several of Trump’s students. A New York court put that one out of business too. Donald Trump paid $25 million to settle lawsuits against the “university.”

When Greg Abbott was Texas’ Attorney General, he investigated Trump University’s operation in the Lone Star state but eventually dropped the case. When he ran for governor four years later, Trump gave his campaign $35,000. In 2013, Florida’s Attorney General, Pam Bondi, announced she was considering joining a lawsuit against Trump U, but dropped it after receiving a $25,000 campaign contribution from Trump four days after her announcement (women do make less than me). It was later revealed that she personally solicited the donation before she spoke publicly about investigating the sham university. Later, she joined the Trump presidential (sic) administration.

There’s Trump’s campaign for president which would take donations and then hold campaign events at Trump’s golf resorts. Thus putting political donations into Trump’s pockets, which you can also buy versions of yourself because there is or was a brand of Trump suits for people who wish to look like corrupt racist assholes. Bleached skunk toupee not included.

Trump also made unreported donations to his campaign by paying hush money to centerfold models and porn stars that he had raw dogged in Las Vegas hotel rooms after being spanked by them with magazines featuring Ivanka on the cover.

Speaking of Ivanka, there’s the corruption of her receiving trademarks from China while she was working as an “advisor” to her father in the White House. She even received some trademarks the same day Daddy Dumbucks was sitting down for cake with Xi Jinping at Mar-a-Lago…which is more corruption.

Ivanka’s skinny husband, Jared received foreign bailouts of his properties WHILE he was serving in the Trump (sic) White House. He also received $2 billion from his good buddy Mohammad bin Salman, who he negotiated military contracts and “peace” treaties with, after leaving the White House. Javanka reportedly made over $640 million while working in the Trump (sic) White House as “advisors.” And the goons want to investigate Hunter’s laptop.

Donald Trump spent 307 days of his presidency (sic) golfing at his resorts. These outings cost taxpayers at least $144,000,000. He spent more than 307 days at his resorts which meant the taxpayers had to pay room and board for the government officials who were burdened by having to go with him. He even charged the Secret Service to rent golf carts to follow him on the course. Trump literally made money off his Secret Service detail, and he’s still making off them today.

I still want to know if Trump charged taxpayers for his room and board at his properties.

Trump hosted the leaders of China and Japan (two separate outings) at Mar-a-Lago, which means those nations had to pay Trump for room and board.

Trump continued to rake in payments from foreign governments while he was president (sic) as they would stay at his hotels to curry his favor. Some nations would rent rooms at Trump’s hotels and not even use them. You can’t blame them because who wants to sleep with bed bugs?

Speaking of bed bugs, there was the time Donald Trump tried to host an international summit at Doral, which was teeming with bed bugs. Trump put together a “special” committee to find the best location for the G7 Summit and wouldn’t you know it, they picked one of his properties. The Covid pandemic canceled the summit and a huge payday for Trump. Bedbugs looking forward to chewing on some Euro cuisine were greatly disappointed.

There was the incident when the website for the White House posted links to Ivanka’s merchandise. Just click “add to cart.” Then, Kellyanne Conway went on a news show and used her position as a paid counselor to the president to pitch Ivanka’s products, which is illegal.

During the 2020 Republican Convention, Donald Trump issued pardons, which was using the presidency for personal gain. He also hosted a portion of the convention at the White House, which is another violation. He also used the Washington Monument for a fireworks presentation. Why he was never fined for this, I don’t know.

Trump’s inauguration committee raked in over $107 million for his inauguration which did not attract the largest crowd ever, and then brought in tractors, cloggers, and Three Doors Down (who was happy it wasn’t another county fair gig) for entertainment. Despite lawsuits and congressional hearings, we still don’t know where all that money went.

Trump pardoned criminals who were friends and officials who worked on his campaign. This could be looked at as buying someone’s silence. Roger Stone, Michael Flynn, and Paul Manafort are all cheaper than Stormy Daniels. Did any of them have to spank Donald with an Ivanka magazine?

During the 2016 campaign, Trump was trying to win approval from Vladimir Putin to build a Trump Tower in Moscow and even tried to bribe him with a penthouse.

Donald Trump tried to extort Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy by withholding congressionally-approved military equipment (for defense in case Russia ever attacked them) in exchange for a pubic statement that he was investigating Joe Biden’s son. This was the reasoning for Trump’s first impeachment.

And then there’s the attempt to steal the election through lies, courts, and an insurrection, which was the reason for his second impeachment. He never conceded he lost and started raising money for his “reinstatement.” Of course, all the official “stop the steal” events are hosted at Trump resorts.

Trump is so corrupt that he was impeached…twice.

Donald Trump is under several investigations, and one of them is in Georgia where he called to threaten and intimidate a state official to “find him the votes.”

His announcement as a candidate in the 2024 election was hosted at Mar-a-Lago, which is another campaign expense that goes into his pocket.

And then we have Trump stealing classified documents. Trump still hasn’t answered the question that no Republican has asked: Why did you take government documents?

Everything about Donald Trump is corrupt. There’s no way I can mention all the examples in a Saturday blog (I wanna move on with my life and do something else today). One guarantee I can make is his next presidential campaign will create new opportunities and examples of Trump’s corruption.

Prisonburgh For Weisselberg


The Trump Crime Family, er, the Trump Organization was charged yesterday for running a scheme to help its executives avoid paying taxes by compensating them with benefits hidden from authorities. Its top executive, Allen Weisselberg, was also charged yesterday for not paying taxes on $1.7 million in perks that should have been reported as income.

For those of you who are Trump supporters and living in yee-haw states, let me explain this in a way you may understand: Let’s say your brother-in-law, who is also your brother, helped you paint and unclog your outhouse. Instead of giving him cash, you paid him with seven cases of Milwaukee’s Best and four packs of Beech-nut chewing tobacco. You may think that’s a big payment for unclogging the shitter, but let’s assume you don’t chew your food. Anyway, you need to report the pissy beer and chew as income and pay taxes on it. For this, I’m assuming your tax bill will be around 30 cents.

The Manhattan District Attorney’s office described it as a “weeping and audacious illegal payments scheme.” They said while the perks for Weisselberg were kept off the company’s books, they were still recorded in an internal spreadsheet. When you’re grifting, you gotta spread that shit out.

Keep in mind, if all of this is true, Weisselberg isn’t just the recipient of the company’s scheme, he would have been in charge of it as the company’s top executive. There is only one other person in the company in top of Weisselberg and his name is Donald J. Trump.

Trump had all sorts of things to say about this, calling it a “continuation of the witch hunt that started when I came down the escalator,” and accusing the district attorney and state’s attorneys of partisan politics. Authorities should have been looking into Trump after that time he came down the escalator talking about dating ten-year-olds.

Trump claims Weisselberg is innocent and is a good man. But what will Trump say if Weisselberg flips? Will he change his tune on his top executive the way he did on Michael Cohen?

With the company being charged, you can’t arrest a company. It’s not like they’re going to march Trump Tower off 5th Avenue and punish it by sending it to Staten Island. Usually when a corporation is convicted in a crime, no humans are held accountable…but the company may be broken up.

The big questions are: Will Weisselberg flip on Trump? Will Trump be charged? Will any other goons from the corporation be charged? Will Trump’s kids be charged? Who else has been paid in perks that weren’t reported as income? Will the walls to Trump Tower come tumbling down…or the walls in Mar-a-Lago, or Trump World Tower, or Bedminster, or Doral, or Turdberry?

According to reports, Weisselberg was often paid with cars and tuition for his grandchildren. Will his next payment be in the form of incarceration? This is what loyalty to Trump gets you.

Weisselberg swears he won’t flip on Trump which reminds me of something I recently watched on Netflix.

It’s a documentary about crime in New York City in the 70s and 80s. Rudy is in the documentary which is ironic since he’ll probably be in a future documentary on crime in New York City. In this documentary, the feds were sneaking into a mob-run restaurant to search and plant wiretaps, but there was a vicious dog inside the place. That dog was all like, “You’re not coming in here, assholes. This is my home. I guard this place. They pay me in pasta and meatballs. They love me and I’m loyal in return. You’ll have to kill me before you can enter this place. Oh, what you got? You got a taser, tough guy? Oh, yeah? You think a little tasing is going to make me turn against my people? I dare you to tase me…c’mon…tase me and see what happens. See what happens, motherfu….HOLY FUCKING SHIT!!!!…that hurt! What the hell was that? That was the taser? Why didn’t anyone ever tell me what a taser feels like? Fuck this place. You guys can do whatever you want. I’m going over to this table and I’m gonna crawl under it stay out of your way.”

And that’s what happened. That barking and growling dog who was baring his teeth got tased, turned around, and crawled under a table. The FBI did everything they wanted to in the place while the guard dog just watched. He probably even pointed out a few things. “Hey, did you check that second cabinet? Yeah, you’ll find some weird shit in there. By the way, do you know when I’ll be able to feel my nipples again?”

Weisselberg may be facing spending the rest of his life in prison if he remains loyal to Trump. I don’t know about his nipples, but that dog’s going to turn.
