Obama is many things, I disagreed with many if not most of his political beliefs, but the one thing wasn't was a fraud. What you see is what you get with him. I respected that then and do now. I liked him far more than Trump but that isn't saying much. It's like saying I like a Puppy more than I do flesh eating bacteria.

If Trump gave he did it for tax purposes not from the goodness of his heart. He doesn't have any goodness in his heart.
We finally agree on something!

Yeah, either that or he counts the hush money that he pays his porn stars and strippers as a "charitable donation".

He can claim that Mexico will pay for his wall, even though it was clear all along that this will never happen. He said he had the largest inauguration crowd in history, which was far from true. And now he can say he has given $102 Million to charity, which is completely fake, and his followers parrot this nonsense with absolutely no evidence

Yes Maryland itself is one of the wealthiest and most educated states in the Union.
Parts of Cummings district are really bad, parts are really nice....isn't that pretty much the story of every American City?
Including Trump's own home town?


Maryland is the wealthiest state:

Default How Donald Trump Shifted Kids-Cancer Charity Money Into His Business

IN ORDER TO understand the Eric Trump Foundation, you need to understand the Donald J. Trump Foundation. The president was never known for giving his foundation much money, and from 2009 to 2014, he didn't give it anything at all. Outsiders still donated, though, allowing Trump to dole out their money to a smattering of more than 200 charities as if it were his own, with many of the donations helping his business interests.

All of the histrionics for naught.

There aren't any cameras in here.

Huh. Now I want to see the list. Came across this just now randomly while researching something related.

"The Trump campaign released a list of charitable donations it says the candidate has made totalling $102m over the past five years - but the items listed were either in-kind contributions such as free rounds of golf at Mr Trump's courses offered at charity auctions and land-conservation agreements or money originating from the Trump Foundation.

"The Foundation's second-biggest donation described on the campaign's list went to the charity of a man who had settled a lawsuit with one of Trump's golf courses after being denied a hole-in-one prize," Fahrenthold and the Post's Rosalind Helderman write."

And at this point, money was coming from people donating to the Trump Foundation. He wasn't adding in money himself.

Maybe Trump cut the check for the $102 mil while he took a short break from pulling people out of the rubble at ground zero on 9/11.

"His" meaning the dotard?


He hasn't said an honest thing in decades. What in the world would make you start to believe anything he now says?


As a matter of act, show us ONE check that he has written from his personal accounts which went to charity, and which check had good funds when the recipient went to cash it.


We'll wait.
