Mt .Trump and his son Eric seem to have a strange way of helping charities.I will be the first to admit the hospital is still getting some money .Eric said they get all of it "100%" except the 1.2 million that the trump organization takes for themselves or the $100,000 Eric took for himself.Why Lie, what is it about this family that makes them lie all the time?

Because it's all about PERCEPTION. The lie builds the perception. They believe in lying. And, he has been elected president which, in his mind, is the ultimate proof that lying works.

How are these people not in jail for this? I rob a store of $5.00 and I will get prison time.....

Oh wait...no thats for poor people. I have enough money to hire an attorney and make it go away. The trumps have enough money to make hundreds of thousands of theft go away.

And this is why people feel like the system is failing us, because in any just system people that steal that much money would be in prison.

There are similar articles about the Clinton Foundation.
A "foundation" or charity is one of the favorite ways the wealthy launder their money.

Which is why Wall Street loves crooks like Trump and Clinton because they know such crooks can be easily bought and made to do their bidding.

Excuse me, but you're missing the point a bit.

The point isn't that they lied. Trump lies about everything, including his height. The point is their actions, not just their words. They were acting unethically, fraudulently - and, of course, rapaciously.

As usual.

Yep, the same way he lied about the size of his hands. Melania, to this day, is thoroughly unimpressed by it.

The Trump family of grifters sticks it charities like they are sticking it to the country.

The Eric Trump Foundation declined to comment on that donation. In effect, though, this maneuver would appear to have more in common with a drug cartel's money-laundering operation than a charity's best-practices textbook.
Once a family of thieves always a family of thieves.

Yep - and then suckers go out and vote for Trump... because they believe his obvious lies or because "Duh... Hillary is a crook." OK, then what is Trump? Oh, yeah - a bigger crook who's also a sexual predator, bigot, and ignorant slimebag who doesn't even pay his taxes.
