Officials leasing the Old Post Office Building for the Trump International Hotel in Washington improperly ignored the Constitution's anti-corruption clauses when they continued to lease the government property to President Trump even after he won the White House, according to an internal federal government watchdog.

Based upon Pres Trump's actions, I have oft wondered whether he is using the Office of the President more to further his own business interests (present and future) than he is to abide by the Oath of Office he took.

For example, his interaction with foreign dictators seem more aligned with the future development of Trump properties in their countries than it is with furthering the interests of the United States and its allies.

Plus the deal that took two hours between Trump and Putin.

So what's illegal about that? The President does not have Time for such pettiness.

He has so many other important things to do...He is Busy! Humpy has to be at the White House in case someone wants to suddenly "negotiate" and give Humpy everything he wants.

Also, Hannity is on Fox News.

Republicans only care about the constitution when it comes to their twisted interpretation of the second amendment.

They're just fine with a con man using the white house to get richer, if he's in their party.

If he was a dem, he'd be impeached already.

But he gave tax cuts to billionaires, so he's above the law.

Only if Americans allow it.

We are Through the Looking Glass.

I am pretty sure no one knows what that means yet. I think it means the old rules do not apply anymore and who ever figures that out first will come out on top.

But, believe it or not, I still have tremendous faith America and the American People and I believe we will eventually do the right thing.

Just hope I live long enough to see it.
