    There are a lot of different opinions here and I have detected a definite hole in one of them.

    I'm not surprised by anything from this administration... par for the course, really.

    Trump family doesn't mind pimping out the presidential seal to make a buck

    If you haven't figured it out yet, the latest Trump scandal should make it clear.
    This Trump presidency isn't about conservative or liberal. It's not about Republican or Democratic. It's not about good government or bad government.
    It's about making money.
    Any way the Trump family can.
    It's about pimping out the presidency of the United States to promote their product.
    The Trump product.
    The latest evidence of that (and there's plenty of it) brings you right here to Loutropolis, where Trump International has hired Eagle Sign & Design to make tee markers that bear the presidential seal for its golf courses.
    ProPublica, the online news source that broke the story, said that it viewed documents that showed Trump International, the part of the Trump Organization that operates Trump's hotel business, had contracted to have the tee markers made.

    I'm so tired of the "he doesn't know any better" bullshit excuse for his behavior. This is illegal as fuck and it demeans the office he holds. Also too, it isn't just golf tees. Apparently, souvenirs with the presidential seal are being sold in gift shops in a multitude of Trump's properties. This is disgraceful and, if the blah president had done this, the cries from the right would have been deafening.

    Folks have already hashed this out.

    They've determined that the illegal activity of Trump International using the presidential seal on its golf courses is the same as the legal activity of Obama using the presidential seal on his personal items.

    And if you don't think so, then you're a hypocrite.

    I know you are not a fan of Obama, so it is a tad bit amusing to watch you defend him. But, in your defense, you're not a hypocrite

    Thanks. It's been crazy watching the way some folks will contort themselves in their attempts to excuse the corruption of Trump and company. These people who are claiming that no president has been treated as badly as Trump. These same people who were cheering on the GOP Congress for spending taxpayer money to try to find some hint that Obama privately did what Trump openly does.

    It's quite surreal.
    Thanks from TennesseeRain and HayJenn

    Worth noting, in light of @ProPublica's reporting this week on use of the presidential seal for commercial purposes, that the Trump Tower gift shop has been selling various tchotchkes bearing the presidential seal.



    He does not even try to hide the corruption in his administration.
    Thanks from Amelia and TennesseeRain
