It looks like we might not have corrupt campaign funding to kick around anymore. The 2020 presidential field is filling up with billionaire celebrities who can fund their own campaign corruption. And that’s not to mention the free publicity they’ll get.
Celebrity Billionaire Presidency
And Mark Cuban, the celebrity billionaire owner of the Dallas Mavericks, has long been considering throwing his NBA championship ring in the ring. If he does so, he says he’ll run as a Republican. Though, as of November he said there’s only a 10% chance he’ll do it.
Maybe Oprah will inspire him.
This didn’t sit well with President Trump. Trump tweeted that Bannon “lost his mind” when he fired him. The Avenging Donald then sicced his lawyers on Wolff – guaranteeing best seller status for the book .
CNN’s Brian Stetler claims Wolff’s book “suggests Trump is unstable and raises alarms about his fitness for office.”
But CNN also reports that Secretary of State Tillerson, once accused of calling Trump a moron, never questioned the president’s mental health. And the White House deputy press secretary called Wolff a fake news, crackpot fantasy fiction writer.
Wolff agrees! A note in the front of his book says some of his sources definitely lied to him.
Dow Up Bannon Down
Whatever. If it’s stability you want, the Dow steadily rose above the 25,000 mark.
Stock analyst Paul Gambles is terrified about that too.
Kim Jong Un told the world he has a button. It’s on his desk and within his reach. And with it, he claims his missiles can reach anywhere in the U.S. And that’s how he plans to have his way.
For some reason Kim’s threat reminded me of President Obama. He said he had a phone and a pen. And he would use them to get his way.
It wasn’t all button rattling though. Kim also reached out to Seoul. He wants North Korea to participate in the 2018 Olympics.
Still, it was all too much for our own current Dear Leader. President Trump tweeted that his button is bigger and it works. I thought it was funny, in a Trump sort of way.
Most everybody is either a Democrat or Republican. So it’s hard to find politically pure investigators.
Nine of the fifteen lawyers Robert Mueller hired to investigate Donald Trump made political contributions. A total of $62,043 of those contributions went to Democrats and $2,750 to Republicans according to Politifact.
Crack FBI agent Peter Strzok also referred to Trump as an “idiot” and a “douche.” And he went on to text that a Trump win was highly unlikely. Even so, he claimed an insurance policy was needed in the event of a Trump victory.
Trump won. And Mueller kicked Strock off the investigation.
Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein defended the Mueller special investigation against bias charges.
