So he direct messaged Trump Jr., elaborating that President Trump is “trying to discredit the media” and that he’d like him to “go back to being just a guy on TV.” Let's see if this works! pic.twitter.com/q5b3d8U4Nx — Seth Rogen (@Sethrogen) February 16, 2017 Rogen sent another direct message to Trump Jr. shortly after the first one, imploring him to tell his dad to talk to House Oversight Committee Chairman Rep.

Are the Trumps cashing in on the White House?
Yahoo News - 7 days
Since Donald Trump won the US presidential election, his family appears to be cashing in on the cachet of leading the free world. Trump's team say he has put his various business assets into a trust that is now run by his sons Donald Jr and Eric, to put distance between his commercial interests - mostly real estate and leisure – and the presidency. The pair claimed in a New York Times interview they had cancelled a billion dollars' worth of deals – which is unverified – to prevent conflicts of interest, and that they would run The Trump Organisation independently of their father, with the help of finance chief Allen Weisselberg.

The First 100 Days

As extraordinary as it sounds, Donald J. Trump is now the 45th president of the United States. Which is mind-boggling. Like making John Goodman the cover model for this year's Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue. Kim Kardashian -- appointed chief scientist at the Atomic Energy Lab. Colin Kaepernick in charge of WikiLeaks. The liberals' last best hopes were dashed on Inauguration Day when the Mango Mussolini put his hand on the Bible and didn't burst into flames. The preacher said the rain that started to fall as DJT took the oath was a good omen in the Bible. Yeah, tell that to Noah. The speech was darker than the Cleveland Browns' offseason. Kind of a cross between Nixon and Voldermort. "It's Mourning in America." Trump will be a president for all Americans except the Muslims, Mexicans, losers, whiners, idiots and nasty women, especially the fat disgusting ones. But now our attention turns not to the real estate developer's vitriolic tweets but his diabolic feats. What is the ...

An Open Letter To Donald Trump On the Eve Of His Inauguration
Huffington Post - about 1 month
Dear Mr. Trump: On the eve of your inauguration, and with all due respect to the office of the presidency you are soon to hold, the deference you have earned, and the essential decency of the American people: F*ck you, you f*cking f*ck. I wish there were other words, but these are trying times, and trying times call for honesty, a concept with which you are clearly unacquainted. And I have to say what's in my heart. So f*ck you, you f*cking f*ck. I am not going to pretend there is anything normal about your presidency. I am not going to pretend that you are entitled to respect. You are entitled to nothing. Not a chance to prove yourself, not an ounce of trust. Your actions since the election have destroyed whatever good will I may have been inclined to extend. You are trying to divide the American people, and I will not have it. We are all Americans, regardless of whether we support you, or hate you, or belittle you, or are working to destroy you. You have a responsibilit ...

Huffington Post - about 1 month
A multimillion-dollar expansion of Donald Trump’s Scottish golf resort is proceeding despite a promise just days ago by his attorneys that “no new foreign deals will be made whatsoever” by the president-elect’s businesses, in an effort to avoid conflicts of interest during his presidency. The Aberdeenshire Council has approved a second 18-hole golf course and more housing in the Trump International Golf Links Scotland operation. The expansion will substantially grow the complex and include a 450-room five-star hotel, timeshare complex and private housing estate, The Guardian reported Saturday. Changes are expected to significantly boost the value of the operation to the Trump Organization.  Trump’s attorney Sheri Dillon announced at his press conference last week that in order to avoid potential conflicts of interest, her client has “ordered that all pending deals be terminated.” Trump is also arranging to turn over management of his companies to his adult sons, Donald Jr. and ...

First there's the children's house of make believe. . . . Robert Frost, Directive The children are having the best time. It's more fun than playing with electric trains, kite flying or practically anything else you can think of. You can pretend that you are the president of the United States and make all sorts of important decisions. You can also impress your friends by helping them get REALLY good jobs in places like the White House in Washington D.C. What makes it even better is that it's for real. Of course, only three out of the five children have gotten to play. Barron is only 11 and Tiffany, who is 21, is starting Harvard Law school. According to the Wall Street Journal, Donald Jr. had an important voice in persuading his father, Donald J. Trump, to nominate Rep. Ryan Zinke to be Secretary of the Interior. Until Junior intervened, Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers of Washington State had been the lead candidate. According to the Wall Street Journal, Junior promoted Mr. ...
