  1. Dear Xena,

    I was saying that the lawyers would start suit starting on day one if DT did not divest himself to protect himself from being sued on “conflicts of interest” claims. Instead, it is day three. As this progresses. I am praying that he will be forced to share his IRS tax returns.

    • Gronda,
      I don’t think Trump will ever release his tax returns. Chances are that he will argue that he was voted into office without releasing them.

      Yesterday, I spent several hours researching Trump’s campaign on the Reform Party’s ticket in 2000. He believed then that his popularity, and not his lack of government experience or failures, would win him the White House. He became skilled in the art of persuasion and that’s why he said he could shoot someone and not lose supporters. There’s a man on youtube who has broken down the brainwashing techniques used by Trump, including how he uses double-entres during debates. It’s a lot to absorb.

  2. He seems to forget something. We don’t work for him – he works for US!!! And I will take EVERY opportunity to let him know that. Oh, speaking of letting him know, have you heard this one yet?

    • What about those citizens who do not have access to the internet? Eliminating the WH comment line discriminates against people who do not have internet access, as well as people who do not know how to use a computer. That might sound odd to those of us who use the internet, but it’s not odd at all.

      • Oh, I know. That’s what i said on my Facebook page. I thought he was supposed to be the president of ALL people, not just those with Internet, computers and/or cell phones. You know, once he takes the news away, the internet away, health care, what next? We’ll have to wear stupid red baseball caps on that holiday he proclaimed or be arrested? How is this happening in the US?

        • Rachael,
          Just goes to show that he doesn’t care for all those unemployed people who he said he wanted to help. How are they suppose to pay for internet access? They might have voted for him because they had no access to cable news or the internet (including Twitter) to see him as he is.

          About those baseball caps — made in China. He probably gets a kickback from each one sold.
