    Anyway, as a reminder of a different time, here are ten scandals of the previous US president:

    Bill Gates donates huge amounts of money to speed up vaccine development, other (purported) billionaires do... less...



    This was hung on the hotel, btw.

    Bill Gates has always been an aggressive philanthropist. He’s donates multiple times of Lord Dampnuts entire fortune into various efforts designed at better disease control, population management, and health and welfare.

    Unlike SOMEONE who seems to be actively trying to make the world worse.

    Cut it out, Tony. You're not fooling anyone.

    The best people:

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/polit...83e_story.html

    Brett Giroir, the federal official overseeing coronavirus testing efforts, says that his experience working on vaccine development projects at Texas A&M University helped prepare him for this historic moment. He once said that his vaccine effort was so vital that “the fate of 50 million people will rely on us getting this done.”

    But after eight years of work on several vaccine projects, Giroir was told in 2015 he had 30 minutes to resign or he would be fired. His annual performance evaluation at Texas A&M, the local newspaper reported, said he was “more interested in promoting yourself” than the health science center where he worked. He got low marks on being a “team player.”

    Now President Trump has given Giroir the crucial task of ending the massive shortfall of tests for the novel coronavirus.

    In other news, Fauci is still trying to get himself fired:

    https://thehill.com/homenews/adminis...me-orders-will

    Anthony Fauci, the top government official on infectious diseases, warned Monday that protests in opposition to governors' stay-at-home orders meant to slow the spread of the coronavirus will "backfire" and further delay the reopening of the economy.

    "Clearly this is something that is hurting from the standpoint of economics and the standpoint of things that have nothing to do with the virus, but unless we get the virus under control, the real recovery economically is not going to happen," Fauci said on "Good Morning America."

    "So what you do if you jump the gun and go into a situation where you have a big spike, you’re going to set yourself back," he said. "So as painful as it is to go by the careful guidelines of gradually phasing into a reopening, it’s going to backfire. That’s the problem."

    Not to be outdone by Sweden's royal princess who is volunteering at a hospital to cook and clean for the doctors and nurses, it looks like princess Dampnut has imparted some advice to all the people stuck at home:



    One of her loyal subjects was so impressed, he immediately learned to do the easiest animal of them all:



    Next up, princess Dampnut is going to put her skillset in use to help with the pandemic

    It's good to be the king, but it's good to be the king's daughter-in-law also:

    https://www.huffpost.com/entry/trump...b635d25d6c747a

    President Donald Trump’s campaign is secretly paying one Trump son’s wife and another one’s girlfriend $180,000 a year each through the campaign manager’s private company, according to top Republicans with knowledge of the payments.

    Kimberly Guilfoyle, the girlfriend of eldest son Donald Trump Jr., and Lara Trump, wife of middle son Eric Trump, are each receiving $15,000 a month, according to two GOP sources who are informal White House advisers and who spoke on condition of anonymity.

    They were unsure when the payments began but say they are being made by campaign manager Bradley Parscale through his company rather than directly by either the campaign or the party in order to avoid public reporting requirements.

    “I can pay them however I want to pay them,” Parscale told HuffPost on Friday, but then declined to comment any further.

    Critics of the arrangement, including Republicans, said the setup was designed to get around Federal Election Commission rules that require campaigns, political parties and other committees to disclose their spending in detail.

    “A lot of people close to Donald Trump are getting rich off of his campaign,” said Paul Ryan, a campaign finance legal expert at the watchdog group Common Cause. “They don’t want donors to know that they’re getting rich. Because, at the end of the day, it’s donor money.”

    [...]

    In all, Parscale’s firms ― Giles-Parscale and Parscale Strategy LLC ― have been paid $38.9 million by Trump’s campaign, the RNC, joint fundraising committees and a pro-Trump super PAC between the day Trump took office through February 2020, according to the latest filings available.

    Numerous RNC officials and members did not respond to HuffPost queries about the arrangement. One who did, Arizona committee member Bruce Ash, wrote: “Drop dead!”

    Trump funneling donor money into his children’s households builds on his practice of funneling it into his own pocket, which began in 2016, right after he became the presumptive Republican nominee and began raising large amounts of GOP money. Trump immediately quintupled the rent he was charging his campaign at Trump Tower, from $35,458 per month to $169,758. He also began billing the campaign five- and six-figure sums for use of his hotels and golf courses for hosting fundraisers.

    Those practices continued after his election and through to this day. His campaign still pays Trump Tower $37,542 a month in rent, even though it is based in a high-rise office building in Arlington, Virginia. The campaign and the RNC continue to host fundraisers at Trump’s properties, putting hundreds of thousands of dollars at a time into his own cash registers.

    All of those entities are owned by the Trump Organization, which in turn is owned by a trust that Trump created after his election and of which he is the sole beneficiary.

    “Grift and graft is the family business,” said Robert Weissman, president of the liberal group Public Citizen.

    I can't seem to really get outraged about this... I mean, if you donate to Trump's campaign, you deserve what you get (or in this case, what he gets, which is your money getting into his pockets).

    That's why I haven't commented on it yet. Trump openly breaks the law almost every other day. Republicans don't think it's worth taking him to task over it, so nothing's gonna be done. Just another Wednesday. Fuck it.

    Looks like the idea of "Let's sacrifice grandma and grandpa for the sake of the economy" isn't going over well in the 65 and older demographic (and old people vote):

    https://morningconsult.com/form/olde...-the-outbreak/

    By a nearly 6-to-1 margin, people 65 years old and older say it’s more important for the government to address the spread of coronavirus than it is to focus on the economy. And as President Donald Trump increasingly signals interest in prioritizing economic interests, America’s senior citizens are growing critical of his approach.

    In mid-March, this group approved of Trump’s handling of the outbreak at a higher rate than any other age group, with a net approval of +19. A month later, that level of support has dropped 20 points and is now lower than that of any age group other than 18-29-year-olds.

    Won't anybody think of Lord Dampnut, though?

    We’re taking very special care of our nursing homes and our seniors, other than me. Other than me. Nobody wants to take care of me. But other than me, we’re taking care of our seniors.

    That's how it goes... everybody knows:

    https://www.thedailybeast.com/the-to...re-getting-aid

    In late March, real estate investment firm Ashford Inc. was on the verge of financial ruin. But it had an ace in the hole: a pair of D.C. lobbying firms stacked with Trump fundraisers and White House alumni.

    A few weeks later, Ashford is now the top recipient nationwide of coronavirus relief aid from the $350 billion Paycheck Protection Act.

    The Dallas-based Ashford does extensive business in the hotel industry through a pair of real estate investment trusts. Its chairman, Monty Bennett, penned an open letter on March 22 detailing just how devastating the virus had been for his company.

    “My industry and our businesses are completely crushed,” he wrote “This pandemic’s economic impact on the hotel industry is worse than all of the previous calamities combined.”

    Bennett himself is a huge Trump donor. He’s given over $200,000 to the Trump campaign, the Republican National Committee, and a joint fundraising committee supporting both of them since last year, according to Federal Election Commission records. He chipped in even more in support of Trump’s 2016 campaign.

    [...]

    On the same day that Ashford hired Miller, it inked a separate lobbying deal with another Trump-connected firm. Bailey Strategic Advisors is run by Roy Bailey, a Trump fundraiser who served as finance chair of pro-Trump super PAC America First Action and on the board of an affiliated dark money group, America First Policies.

    Bailey’s firm was more specific about what it would be doing on Ashford’s behalf, saying in lobbying registration forms that it would work on “issues related to COVID-19 relief for the hotel industry.”

    News of the $53 million in PPP funds that Ashford eventually received—more than any other company—has fueled criticism this week of the large amounts of money from the program steered to large firms, ostensibly at the expense of smaller ones. The PPP program is set to get another $300 billion injection after its initial funds were depleted in a matter of days.

    “As small businesses are struggling across the country, it’s still mega-donors first for Donald Trump and his administration,” said Jeb Fain, a spokesman for the Democratic super PAC American Bridge, in a statement on Ashford’s work in securing PPP funds. “Hardworking Americans deserve better than a president more focused on special favors than managing a major crisis.”

    Textbook malignant narcissism.

    King Donald is forcing a thousand West Point cadets back to campus, needlessly exposing them to risk, where they will be tested (with test kits already in dire short supply) and quarantined for 14 days with masks... so he can give a speech. No word on families.

    A little reminder that Trump is not just ignorant on matters medical...



    EDIT: And of course, the laughable denial...



    No, Donald. Sarcasm requires a modicum of intellect to pull off.
