Trump Coughs It Up, Again

President Trump has paid $2 million to eight charities as part of a settlement in which the president admitted he misused funds raised by the Donald J. Trump Foundation to promote his presidential bid and pay off business debts, the New York State attorney general said on Tuesday.
At this point in time, only a Kool-aid-drinking Trumpanzee can maintain the fiction that Trump isn't a crook, a venal con man. It's also kind of delicious that Trump's adult spawn had to undergo compulsory training in not stealing from charities.

This isn't the first time that Trump has had to cough up a large amount of cash because of his criminality.

If any of this crap had been proven against the Clintons (as in "legal proceedings", not "Alex Jones grade conspiracy droolings"), the Right Wing Noise Machine would have been calling for public executions. But with Trump, the Right is silent. Because they are willing to close their eyes to proven evil and to actions that strike at the base of their own morals, as long as it suits their purposes.

That's not just deplorable. It is despicable.

Also, questions for Republicans.
The comment section, of course, is open to the usual whataboutists.

We live in interesting times
We have come to the attention of those in authority
The people that we went to high school with are running the country.

And Moscow Mitch has already colluded and conspired with his fellow senate trumpites to continue Putin's plan with a short 10 minute trial for trump. Which will decide not only for aquittal but will declare trump's crap don't stink and that sunshine does, in fact, shines out of his ample buttocks.
They'd better say it or else no GOP primary win for you, Deep Stater former senator, back to East Bumfuck, MO for private law practice and more time with the family. The perfect god king has already decreed it (got his instructions from Putin).
