And it’s not just any performers Trump won’t pay. It’s adorable little girls. “In an article posted this morning, Jeff Popick, the man who wrote the song and the father of the youngest Freedom Girl, informed the Washington Post that he plans to sue Trump over promises Popick says were made and then broken by the campaign.” Oh, and he’s trying to stiff a hotel that hosted a campaign event, too.
A 74-page document that’s nothing but links to terrible things Trump has said and done. And growing.
“The results of an online survey conducted by Teaching Tolerance suggest that the campaign is having a profoundly negative effect on children and classrooms. It’s producing an alarming level of fear and anxiety among children of color and inflaming racial and ethnic tensions in the classroom. Many students worry about being deported.”
“While working on “The Art of the Deal,” Schwartz kept a journal in which he expressed his amazement at Trump’s personality, writing that Trump seemed driven entirely by a need for public attention. “All he is is ‘stomp, stomp, stomp’—recognition from outside, bigger, more, a whole series of things that go nowhere in particular,” he observed, on October 21, 1986.”
On the flip side: “Clinton’s promise is a big one, but that doesn’t mean it’s an empty one. This morning, Moody’s Analytics released a report concluding that Clinton’s economic plan would create 3.2 million jobs and accelerate growth of the nation’s gross domestic product (GDP). By contrast, earlier this month, a similar (albeit contested) Moody’s analysis of Trump’s economic plan estimated that it would reduce employment (by about 3.5 million jobs), reduce economic output, and prompt a painful recession.”
“It was determined the T-shirt was offensive to some people and so the decision was made to pull it from the sales floor.” The text” Someday a woman will be president.” The year: 1995. How far we’ve come.
“I cannot walk into a room with pictures of Humayun. For all these years, I haven’t been able to clean the closet where his things are — I had to ask my daughter-in-law to do it. Walking onto the convention stage, with a huge picture of my son behind me, I could hardly control myself. What mother could? Donald Trump has children whom he loves. Does he really need to wonder why I did not speak?” This woman’s strength is incredible. Dishonor and shame on anyone who attacks her.
I want to live in The Onion’s uniferse: “Donald Trump reportedly threw himself on his bed Tuesday and asked himself ‘Why can I never seem to say the right thing?‘ while weeping into his pillow.”
