Yes, I saw those - also something about "some conflict of interest is OK"

Edit: OK- it's not "Some is OK" it's "Can't Be done":


Donald Trump said on Tuesday that he faces no legal obligation to cut ties with his businesses, even as he described how winning the presidency has made his brand “hotter” and acknowledged advancing his business interests during a conversation with a British politician.

"The law's totally on my side, the president can't have a conflict of interest,” Trump said in an interview with New York Times editors and writers.


And as Priebus said - they and their lawyers will be watching to make sure there is nothing wrong ... i.e. the foxes are guarding the hen house.


And he is correct. There are no conflict of interest laws regarding the presidency. He can act to benefit himself, his business, his family... and we have no recourse. Just as long as he doesn't break the law.

I think it is pretty damn funny that "we" elected The Trump Organization to run the USA.

Trump literally has no reason to keep any of his promises to the alt-right, and every reason to use the USA to make himself and Wall Street more money.

And don't forget to add Electoral College to the list:

Trump, who once criticized the Electoral College as undemocratic, now salutes it as having a "certain genius."

Not so much as a walk-back, but a Trump-change nonetheless

Donald Trump says social media helped him win the presidential election -- but he'll be "restrained" about using Twitter and Facebook once in power.

An interesting glance back at history.

1) He admits Social Media helped him win - which we all know now, and agree that the Russians were heavy into the social media propaganda. But don't expect Trump to put 2 and 2 together.

2) He'll be "restrained". Hell, if this is restrained, I don't want to see Unleashed.

Yes, our draft dodger in chief also "walked back" his position re the Vietnam war... now he would have been honored to have served.

He is a mockery of all that was ever good about the USA,
