Trump Deserves to be Turned-Away

[sketch by C Leck)

Think about it readers, please! Donald Trump does not deserve your vote. He deserves to be rejected by huge numbers. It will send a message to other frauds who seek to take over this office.

Paul Waldman in the Washington Post calls the following a history of Donald Trump's corruption, double-dealing and fraud [see the story here).

  •  Trump’s casino bankruptcies, which left investors holding the bag while he skedaddled with their money 
  • Trump’s habit of refusing to pay contractors who had done work for him, many of whom are struggling small businesses 
  • Trump University, which includes not only the people who got scammed and the Florida investigation, but also a similar story from Texas where the investigation into Trump U was quashed. * The Trump Institute, another get-rich-quick scheme in which Trump allowed a couple of grifters to use his name to bilk people out of their money 
  • The Trump Network, a multi-level marketing venture (a.k.a. pyramid scheme) that involved customers mailing in a urine sample which would be analyzed to produce for them a specially formulated package of multivitamins 
  • Trump Model Management, which reportedly had foreign models lie to customs officials and work in the U.S. illegally, and kept them in squalid conditions while they earned almost nothing for the work they did 
  • Trump’s employment of foreign guest workers at his resorts, which involves a claim that he can’t find Americans to do the work 
  • Trump’s use of hundreds of undocumented workers from Poland in the 1980s, who were paid a pittance for their illegal work 
  • Trump’s history of being charged with housing discrimination 
  • Trump’s connections to mafia figures involved in New York construction 
  • The time Trump paid the Federal Trade Commission $750,000 over charges that he violated anti-trust laws when trying to take over a rival casino company
  • The fact that Trump is now being advised by Roger Ailes, who was forced out as Fox News chief when dozens of women came forward to charge him with sexual harassment. According to the allegations, Ailes’s behavior was positively monstrous; as just one indicator, his abusive and predatory actions toward women were so well-known and so loathsome that in 1968 the morally upstanding folks in the Nixon administration refused to allow him to work there despite his key role in getting Nixon elected.

I don’t need to say anything else. Anyone who votes for this man in November is a bit crazy and unconcerned about the health and wealth of our nation.

Trump will likely threaten to sue about the list of claims above. As in the past, it will only be a bluff and the man won’t dare sue because he’d face such embarrassment at a trial which would prove these charges true.
