Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Saturday, March 23, 2019

President Donald Trump has emblazoned the "Trump" brand name on images of the White House to sell in his Trump Store and at the Trump International Hotel in the capital. The products give the bizarre impression that the White House is a Trump hotel. Walter Shaub, who was director of the Office of Government Ethics in both the Obama and Trump administrations, sharply criticized the products as the latest move to "monetize the presidency" for private gain.

You write a couple of best selling books and you can live in a mansion too.

A Black Sea dacha, in your case.

It IS a Trump property these days. And Rs are OK with that. So are St. Petersburg trolls.

Did "He did it too" carry any water with your parents when you were growing up?

If Conservatives didn't have their apples-to-oranges Whattaboutisms they wouldn't have much at all.

Great. Sheeple is back. God knows we need another full time deflector.

Hey moron, ---- back off. This place was far better without you.

Well, for 8 years all I heard was how the White House was Obama's house, especially when he bathed it in a rainbow.

So now the country elected someone else and it's not his house?

You're an idiot if you think that false equivalency is remotely true.

#10 Did Obama sell cheap Chinese junk that referred to the White House as his own hotel? The answer is obviously no, since you would've blown a gasket and wouldn't be posting here anymore.

Man I would hate to be trapped inside your head.

You apparently hear some weird some ----...err, stuff in there.

it's not his house?

It's not his house fool.

It's the People's house as much as the House of Representatives or the Senate are the Peoples Houses. ALL these "houses" belong to the People. (well, maybe the Senate...not so much)

As servants of the People politicians occupy them for very brief moments in time.

And guess what Mr Bozo?

Everything they do or say while in those office's (or houses) belongs to the People, too, for all Time.

So just remember...When Trump is taking a crap on the Resolute Desk. Which he just loves to do.

Yup. You guessed it!

That crap belongs to us now.

And so it goes...

I can't imagine how pathetic your life is to be that jealous of the Obama girls.

The real White House has eight front windows in each wing. This cartoon White House has only six.

The deflections aren't even working here. It's painful to see.

Trump is enriching himself off of his public office. He should be charged and removed. The order of those events is up to the prosecutors.

It's only painful to ones of us who love America and had such high hopes for Her.

Not painful at all to Traitors, Thieves and Liars.

Guys, this is really big news, again.
I'm sure this will be the thing that gets everyone else all worked up and upset and makes us want to whine like women.
In fact, I'm going to get a Facebook account and let everyone know just how much this upsets me.
Worst. Day. Ever. (Picture of a frazzled cat)
