Trump U Is The Donald's Watergate Comments (0)

The Attorneys General of Florida and Texas are both dirty when it comes to the Trump University fraud lawsuit.

Florida's outrageously partisan, incompetent AG Pam Bondi wasn't even slick about it:

Florida's attorney general personally solicited a political contribution from Donald Trump around the same time her office deliberated joining an investigation of alleged fraud at Trump University and its affiliates

The new disclosure from Attorney General Pam Bondi's spokesman to the Associated Press on Monday provides additional details around the unusual circumstances of Trump's $25,000 donation to Bondi.

The money came from a Trump family foundation in apparent violation of rules surrounding political activities by charities. A political group backing Bondi's re-election, called And Justice for All, reported receiving the check Sept. 17, 2013 — four days after Bondi's office publicly announced she was considering joining a New York state probe of Trump University's activities. 

After the check came in, Bondi's office nixed suing Trump, citing insufficient grounds to proceed.

When it comes to Texas, where everything—including corruption—is bigger, then-AG Greg Abbott dropped the suit against Trump U ... and Trump magically supported Abbott for governor. He won:

“The decision not to sue him was political,” John Owens told the Dallas Morning News. “Had [Trump] not been involved in politics to the extent he was at the time, we would have gotten approval. Had he been just some other scam artist, we would have sued him.”

People who feign deep concern that Hillary Clinton is untrustworthy and on the take over ridiculous things like regrettably using a private e-mail server (thus breaking the rules that every other SOS had been breaking, plus one new one) or like GASP accepting pay to speak at financial institutions are just anti-Democratic or anti-Hillary. The shit Trump has gotten up to is straight-up corruption and graft.

It's not a case of Hillary being less corrupt, it's a case of viewing Hillary's ever move through a prism of corruption and accepting Trump's many shady maneuvers as if it were business as usual.

Yes, they've made a moist towelette meant specifically for men to use in order to refresh our junk.

From a press release:

Manager, Inc. today announces Nadkins (#Nadkins), the world’s first 100% natural, non-toxic towelette specifically formulated for a man’s most sensitive area.  Recognizing a severe need in the marketplace for a top-of-the-line men's grooming product for “down there,” founder and CEO Joe Caccamo enlisted the help of a top beauty industry chemist to create the Nadkins formula. Each individually wrapped towelette gently cleans, hydrates, soothes and comforts all skin types while providing a refreshing feeling that boosts men's comfort and confidence.
 
“Our goal is to deliver high quality and luxurious grooming products to men. Having a very active lifestyle, I understand the need for a product like Nadkins in the marketplace,” states Caccamo. “Let's face it, when a man is uncomfortable down there, he is generally uncomfortable all over, making for a miserable day. We aim to solve this problem by bringing Nadkins to the masses.”  
 
Manager, Inc. enlisted New York-based Whipsmart, one the nation’s leading beauty/wellness manufacturers, to handle product formulation, packaging and production.  Whipsmart created a completely non-toxic formula comprised of: Aloe Vera (soothes irritation); Allantoin (cleans away dead skin); Vitamin E (protects & nourishes); Colloidal Oatmeal (soothes dry, itchy skin); Menthyl Lactate (cools & refreshes); and Grapefruit Essence (freshens naturally).
 
Nadkins will be sold via an elegant 10-pack “cigarette-style” box and also through a refillable gravity box for retailer point-of-sale.  On Nadkins.com, a premium box of 10 pocket-sized packettes will sell for $12.50; a subscription option for $11.50 per 10-pack box; and 3-pack (30 packets) for $30.00. The 60-count, point-of-sale gravity box is available to select retailers with suggested retail pricing $1.00 per packet.
 
The company’s refined branding is the creation of co-creative executive directors, Jon Soto and Nick Cohen from the recently resurrected, Oakland, CA-based Mad Dogs & Englishmen. 

The commercial may give you, or your privates, palpitations ...

Why Hillary: Assessing The Pros And Cons, Plus: Gov. Jerry Brown Endorses Old Foe Comments (0)

Aaron Loeb lays out the case for, and the case against, Hillary Clinton in clear prose at Medium.

While he lays out the negatives and positives, you know how sensible it's all going to be from the intro:

There are women alive today in the United States who were born without the right to vote. We are on the verge of nominating the first woman in our history to be a major-party candidate. On the other side, we are on the verge of nominating the first major-party candidate to have never held political office since Eisenhower. Eisenhower beat Hitler. Donald Trump thinks Hitler had a lot of good ideas.

This is not politicking and spinning, this is just reality.

California Gov. Jerry Brown, while praising Sanders, has come out and endorsed Hillary, a week ahead of his state's primary vote:

The general election has already begun. Hillary Clinton, with her long experience, especially as Secretary of State, has a firm grasp of the issues and will be prepared to lead our country on day one. Next January, I want to be sure that it is Hillary Clinton who takes the oath of office, not Donald Trump.

In other news, Trump's actual wealth is given some side-eye by Politico, which suggests he is—yes—rich, but that a great deal of his money is accounted for via creative bookkeeping. Also, slimy Martin Shkreli has un-endorsed Trump, or rather, claims he never really endorsed him in the first place.

*widget boy cultureDonald Trump tried to get away with reneging on a donation to a veterans' group ... until they and the Washington Post called him on it.

*widget boy cultureReport: Debbie Wasserman Schultz may exit before the Democratic convention. Who would miss her, exactly?

*widget boy cultureHillary plays “Who'd You Rather?: VP Edition” on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. Sorry, Bernie, but she picked pretend-prez Tony Goldwyn over you. Airs today.

*widget boy cultureHillary goes after Trump's populism, highlighting his on-the-record bragging that he could cash in on the housing crash in 2006/2007.

*widget boy cultureZimmerman says he sold the gun he used to murder Trayvon Martin because he's “sick of Hillary Clinton's anti-gun rhetoric.” Buyer will give to son for his b'day.

6-PACK/politics — Starr Witness + Unpopularity Contest + Hillary SHOULD Win In A Landslide + Belatedly Ready For Hillary + Bernie's Convention Muscle + McAuliffe Confident, But In Shock! Comments (0)

*widget boy cultureKenneth Starr, who hounded Bill Clinton in the '90s, praises the former POTUS's empathy and redemptive work out of office, sounds regretful.

*widget boy cultureMost of America either dislikes or hates both Hillary Clinton (admired by only 19%) and Donald Trump (admired by only 10%).

*widget boy cultureEvery knowledgable election expert is predicting an electoral-college landslide for Hillary Clinton. I'm not going to count on anything.

*widget boy cultureHow one Bernie Sanders supporter is going from feeling the Bern to getting ready for Hillary.

*widget boy cultureBernie is going to lose, but that “already won” argument is bearing fruit—he'll have more say in the platform this time than Hillary did in '08.

*widget boy cultureVirginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe sounds very confident that the federal probe of donations to his campaign won't bring him down.
