Yes ...CNN, MSNBC, NBC, CBS, ABC, et al. All the purveyors of "fake news," the sewer that the "mainstream" Media has become.

I would also add Barack Obama and the "Shadow Government" he is running from his newly acquired mansion in D.C., from which he operates OFA and where many of his former staff have their offices.

You are a member of OFA, are you not? I've noticed that you have never denied it.

Arguing that Trump saves money on travel is a silly argument. He's travels all over for personal reasons and has run up quite a bill. You may want to let that one go.

Plus, it has nothing to do with a conversation about him launching his re-election bid and fundraising for it less than six months in to his administration that can kindly be described as underwhelming.

Not to mention the more important point that what he's doing is actually illegal, since it's being held at his own property that he's leasing from the government and thus violating the emoluments clause.

But it's obvious no one follows the Constitution anymore.

Deranged will complain about everything.
  • Trump holds fundraiser for GOP = Trump is money grubber trying to enrich himself.
  • Trump doesn't hold fundraiser for GOP = GOP hates Trump.
This speaks for itself.

Trump and the Republicans won because they lied and they cheated.

From gerrymandering and purging voter rolls to promoting lies, they cheated.

All the Obama-did-too and what-about-Clinton malarky is a ridiculously thin defense.

Did you ever look at the bill that Obama ran up? No, you didn't, because he was your guy.

Trump has accomplished more in five months than Obama accomplished in eight years. You wouldn't know though, because you only watch CNN, MSNBC (Rachel Madcow!) et al. Do you get your "news" each morning from "Morning Joke?"

Oh, please! You don't even know what the "Emouluments Clasue" is about, and have never even read it. You're just parroting Rachel Madcow or some other dumb leftist "news" anchor.

The "Emoluments Clause" has to do with accepting gifts from foreign dignitaries in return for special favors.

As for "following the Constitution," When did Barack Obama ever express any reverence for or follow the Constitution? He didn't. "Progressives" don't believe in the Constitution (unless it's convenient).

Get an education!

If President Obama had been the person candidate Obama said he was going to be, there is no President Trump.

Where are all our Conservative Constitution supporters? How can you condone this blatantly unethical and criminal behavior?

We all know darn well if Obama or Hillary did this, you'd be screaming your heads off demanding impeachment.
You've never read the Constitution. You wouldn't know a violation if it slapped you in the face.

This isn't unethical, nor is it criminal, nor is there any violation of the Constitution.

Since when did a Leftist have any interest in the Constitution anyway?
