Uh oh.

Isn't this sort of price gouging? ..... and worse?



When it came out this year that President Donald Trump’s inaugural committee raised and spent unprecedented amounts, people wondered where all that money went.

It turns out one beneficiary was Trump himself.

The inauguration paid the Trump Organization for rooms, meals and event space at the company’s Washington hotel, according to interviews as well as internal emails and receipts reviewed by WNYC and ProPublica.

During the planning, Ivanka Trump, the president-elect’s eldest daughter and a senior executive with the Trump Organization, was involved in negotiating the price the hotel charged the 58th Presidential Inaugural Committee for venue rentals. A top inaugural planner emailed Ivanka and others at the company to “express my concern” that the hotel was overcharging for its event spaces, worrying of what would happen “when this is audited.”

Finally!!!!!

The left has put together the one thing that will get rid of Orange Bad Man and get Her Highness back to where she belongs!!!

Trump used resources that he owned!!!!

This is seriously going to be the funniest 6 years ever, watching the downward spiral of stupid from the left.

S&F!!!

the plot just keeps thinning out...

more twists than M knight shyamalan movie.
funny enough Sarah Huckabee says the dealings had nothing to do with the trumps.




“That doesn’t have anything to do with the president or the first lady,” White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told reporters on Thursday night, when asked about the story in the Journal.

Typical rightist response to anything even remotely incriminating against Trump and his family. Either deflect or act as if it's not a big deal and/or that if it triggers liberals it's actually a good thing.

If it were Hillary you'd be up in arms, but Trump? "The media says mean things about him so he's innocent!"

Do you really not have a problem if Trump embezzled funds donated supposedly to help his campaign, and instead channeled them into his own pocket?


I guess you celebrated when Trump Universities embezzled all those students out of their money too?


Or when the Trump organisation commits fraud to evade paying taxes?

Funny how each side keeps receiving ammo. It's almost as if the narrative has been crafted to create as much cognitive dissonance as possible. Why admit your favorite politician is corrupt when all this evidence against the other guy keeps piling up?

Obvious bread and circus is obvious.

Let's be real here, the media says mean things about Trump.

Case closed, Trump's corruption is either made up or justified. I mean, look at Hillary! Next.

How do yall think politicians get so rich so fast while in office?

This is one way, and here is the catch anyone that has paid attention knows shady deals went down numerous times allowing politicians to get rich for decades right and left and not many cared.

Yet now its a problem, the fact many of you will not give a flip after trump is what makes the left such raging hypocrites.

Yet here you are giving Trump a pass while demanding every punishment under the sun for any Democrat that so much as sneezes the wrong way.

Consistency isn't a strong suit when it comes to political hacks.

Where the money came from may have a bearing on that.

Insinuating some could’ve come from foreign entities?

What then would be Trump’s penalty? Or might it be more trouble for Gates, because there doesn’t seem to be much pointing to DJT the individual.

I'm just pointing out the obvious.

Russian Collusion!!!!!!

Let's investigate, even though collusion isn't a crime.

For years!!!!!!

Going forward past the other 34524525234234234 attempts to make something not criminal an actual crime just for Trump...

This week.... Campaign Violation!!!! Trump uses his own money to do a private business transaction... not a crime however now he will be impeached and then thrown in jail when he leaves... if not sooner!!!!

Right now... Trump uses resources from his own company!!!!! Not a crime at all but it NEEDS to be a crime so we can investigate, make this a high crime and impeach!!!!

I'm not right, by the way. I'm a social liberal, fiscal conservative.

I look like someone on the right to you because anything right of Marx is now the alt-right to you poor people.

So we are on what.... 500 or so times that the left has screamed wolf, just because they cannot accept the results of an election you personally didn't like?

So #Resist!!!!

Have fun with that..

Can you post me the proof of embezzlement?

As for committing fraud to avoid paying taxes, is that leftspeak for "Trump used actual laws to pay less taxes, so he is a criminal even though everyone else uses deductions as well?"

Because the standards of the left are, again, getting funnier and funnier.

The Democratic Party slogan going into 2020 should be "Because It's Not A Crime When We Do It."

To some it does, yes.

Thought the fact someone authored the thread would make that obvious

Let me know when there's an actual investigation.

Until then it's just an Internet reporter jabbering.

Apparently 50 million dollars is still unaccounted for.

Sweet Sarah was asked about it, and here is her shocking comment:

"Donald Trump didn't have anything to do with it".
