And So It Begins ... The Oval Office Makes Coins For _____

Mere days after the presidential election, the Embassy of Kuwait cancelled a contract with the Four Seasons in Georgetown and will now hold its National Day celebration at the _____ International Hotel instead.

Coinky-dink? I think not.

A source, with direct knowledge of the arrangements between the hotel and the embassy, spoke to ThinkProgress on the condition of anonymity, claims that the Kuwaiti embassy, which has regularly held the event at the Four Seasons, ALLEGEDLY canceled its reservation after members of the _____ Organization pressured the ambassador to hold the event at the hotel owned by the president-elect.

It all just stinks, especially given that it was just last fall that the Kuwaiti Embassy signed a contract with the Four Seasons which was suddenly cancelled after the election.

Now,  Ambassador Al-Sabah of Kuwait is saying that, prior to the election, the event was scheduled at the Four Seasons, but he calls it more of a “save the date” arrangement rather than an actual commitment that was then shifted with _____ won the election.

The invitations are already out ... 

Al-Sabah denied receiving any pressure from the _____ Organization :::cough bull shit cough::: and says he moved the event because, and this is rich, “Why not?”

No, sir, the question is why.

But, under repeated questioning, Al-Sabah acknowledged that he had “lots of friends” and that he “may have” spoken to a Trump associate after the election but continued to deny that the event was discussed or that he was pressured to change venues.

And yet now, Kuwait has signed a contract with the _____ International Hotel.

And so it begins; a foreign government is trying to gain favor with a US president by doing private business with him, and a US president is using his position as president to line his pockets with cash.

According to top legal experts, that would be unconstitutional and could ultimately constitute an impeachable offense.

Fingers crossed.

But what I find most troubling are the _____ supporters who aren’t concerned that president-elect _____ is making coins off the office; I mean, didn’t he say he was gonna work for the middle class,  and drain the swamp in DC? Then, please to explain, his tax break for the wealthy and how he actually drained the swamp to find his team.

And didn’t he accuse Hillary Clinton of using the Clinton Foundation in a pay for play kind of venture and yet here is doing blatantly doing that with his hotel?

Those of you who voted for the charlatan must feel so proud, except most of you are too busy looking at shiny things rather than pay attention what he’s doing to you.

Healthcare? Gone.

Medicare? Gone.

The environment? Trashed.

Business brought back to America? Not his, never his.

Jobs saved? Nope, don’t be fooled by the Carrier deal; that was a one-off.

Impeachment cannot come soon enough.

But, those of you who thought Hillary had this in the bag, and then sat on your asses at home rather than getting out to vote are also to blame. If you ever thought your vote didn’t matter, this was the election that disproved that theory. You’re to blame as well, and will continue to be blamed unless you do something about it.

Resist. Vote. Remove the GOP. Remove any Democrat who is happy with the status quo. Mobilize.

thinking.... can he get impeached before he gets inauguration?

He will feed his Trumplodite supporters shit sandwiches and they'll do either one of 2 things - either pinch their noses and eat them, or blame Clinton. Republicans are like that, they either do no wrong or blame someone else.

It's as Trumpeltsiltskin said before the election he could murder a man in cold blood on Fifth Avenue and his supporters would swear blind they saw nothing. The goblin can do no wrong.

Only problem with impeachment is it gives us President Pence.

There is a school of thought that the GOP Senate might actually impeach T---p because they would prefer Pence anyway, they'd get all the right-wing policy without having to worry about a loose cannon president starting a nuclear war. Either way, whichever prick occupies the Oval Office, he'll be signing legislation written on Koch Brothers stationery and generally doing as much damage as possible to America.
