Let me start this post by saying thank you for your service to all of the Vets out there.
This is the day that we pause to celebrate their sacrifice for this country.
It’s just sad that our brave men and women in uniform have to report to a commander in chief who was too much of a coward to serve his country, and who actually lied and used his family’s connections to avoid serving in the military.
That is all bad, but what is just as disgusting and egregious , is the fact that this same man stole two million dollars that he lied and said was meant for the veterans he is supposed to be looking out for.
Here are excerpts from an article outlining some of the shenanigans:
“President Donald Trump must pay a $2 million judgment for improperly using his Trump Foundation charity to further his 2016 presidential campaign, a New York state judge ruled Thursday.
The order appears to bring to an end the New York attorney general’s lawsuit against the president and three of his oldest children over the now-shuttered foundation, which the attorney general said had engaged in repeated wrongdoing.
“Our petition detailed a shocking pattern of illegality involving the Trump Foundation — including unlawful coordination with the Trump presidential campaign, repeated and willful self-dealing, and much more,” then-Attorney General Barbara Underwood alleged in a statement late last year.
In her seven-page ruling, New York Supreme Court Justice Salliann Scarpulla wrote, “Mr. Trump’s fiduciary duty breaches included allowing his campaign to orchestrate the Fundraiser, allowing his campaign, instead of the Foundation, to direct distribution of the Funds, and using the Fundraiser and distribution of the Funds to further Mr. Trump’s political campaign.”
The judge was referring to a Jan. 28, 2016, event Trump held in Des Moines, Iowa, that he’d billed as a fundraiser for veterans. The event was counter-programming for a GOP presidential debate on Fox. Trump was feuding with the network at the time.” [Source]
This story has gotten a shockingly small amount of traction among the main stream media outlets. I suppose it’s because that nothing this president does can shock the conscience anymore. I mean compared to other things
that he has done this might qualify as just another dog bites man story.
America, we can do better. Those brave men and women whose service we celebrate today, didn’t sacrifice so much for us to live in a country with such a leader.
