You find this information for me...will you please...
No, someone has already told you what to do. Investigate it yourself. If you find an actual problem, tell us about it. But just attacking the source without looking is lazy and stupid.

(BTW, I say the same thing to liberals who attack conservative sources. Five minutes tracking down the information contained usually reveals its reliability.)

When you make such an allegation it should be provided with a source. Just saying...

“I would advise respectable women travelling alone, or with an escort, to be careful in their selection of hotels at Bennett,” according to a letter penned by “The Pirate” in the Yukon Sun on April 17, 1900. For single men, the Arctic offered excellent accommodations but women should avoid it “as they are liable to hear that which would be repugnant to their feelings and uttered, too, by the depraved of their own sex.”

Trump quickly saw where the real profits lay amid the gold-rush frenzy. An estimated 100,000 prospectors set out for the Klondike, of which only a third actually made it, and a mere 4 percent ever struck gold. Given those odds, Trump’s willingness to lay down his pick was “a shrewd move," according to Blair. “He was mining the miners.”

Bennett was a key hub for prospectors, who trudged from Alaska across frozen mountains and floated rickety rafts down the treacherous rapids of the Yukon River to Dawson City in search of elusive gold. The town lost its allure with the construction of a railway link from Skagway, Alaska to Whitehorse, allowing miners to bypass Bennett.

In response, Trump dismantled the restaurant and its precious lumber and rebuilt it in Whitehorse. A photo in Blair’s book shows a mustachioed Fred Trump in a white apron. He’s standing at the bar near a wall of drapes behind which women, known as “sporting ladies,” entertained miners in privacy.

Donald Trump very rarely laughs. I've noticed that. And on those very rare occasions when he does laugh, it's really creepy. I've noticed that, too. If he DOES laugh, he's always laughing at the extreme discomfort or troubles of some other unfortunate person. It's always a CRUEL and MOCKING laugh, when he does laugh.

He rarely smiles, either, for that matter. And, sure enough, when he does smile, it's a creepy smile.

Don't shoot the messenger.
I disagree. I don't really care for Trump, but I have seen him be warm at times and actually connect with people. He's not a very warm person, but nevertheless he can be.

Morning Joe had a significant role in Trump's rise. Scarborough practically allowed Trump to call in every day in his early campaign.

Sorry, but there's just no comparison to an organized, mainstream political campaign to call your mom a lying race-traitor to un-Americanize you.
Yes, they did.

Norning Joe contributed greatly to Trumps win.

They did not WANT him to win, but were glad to put him on because he helped their ratings.

Besides, they were convinced that Hillary had the election sewed up so why not? (M O N E Y !)

Poor little adultress Mika; she is one of the biggest Trump Haters on TV yet she now realizes that she helped elect him...

The family fortune came from whore houses originally. This generation of Trumps have constantly been tax cheats, exploiting what their father earned. No wonder he doesn't want his tax returns known, he cheats and always has.
Back in the day, people didn't care so much, didn't get so bent out of shape, about whorehouses. Heck, they even made a movie called The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas, and it was a VERY popular movie, starring Burt Reynolds and Dolly Parton, and I betcha both Burt and Dolly were reliable Republican voters! If memory serves me correctly, some of the actors were even nominated for Academy Awards!

But yes, Donald Trump's grandfather was well known to have profited from running whorehouses.
