Just another day in Trump world

So, I fully elaborated by cat-piss-infested house theory of Trump to my current class yesterday in a way I had not before.  Had fun with that and extended the metaphor.  I decided at this point, the cat may be crapping in your shoes and people will just so, “oh well, I’ve got other shoes.”  Maybe when the cat starts scratching your eyes out you’ll notice somethings wrong.  Maybe.

The indefatigable David Farenthold with yet another story of big-time Trump financial malfeasance, and, presumably just a collective sigh.  Loved this summary from Brian Beutler’s newsletter:

President Trump inflated the height of Trump Tower, the size of his winery, and the number of home lots for sale on his golf courses, in order to secure financing from lenders. This is what most lawyers would call mortgage fraud, what Bill Barr might call failure to establish that Trump committed robbery, and what Trump would call COMPLETE AND TOTAL EXONERATION.

And, which will honestly probably just get one more collective shrug.  Just the cat crapping in your shoes.  Nothing to see here.
