    NOT A JOKE: TRUMP IS LOOKING INTO MAKING BRIBERY LEGAL

    “It’s just so unfair that American companies aren’t allowed to pay bribes to get business overseas. We’re going to change that.”

    The trouble with the Trump administration, beyond the moral bankruptcy, rampant nepotism, sheer incompetence, mass corruption, white nationalism, idiot children, assault on the concept of truth, and pure evil, is that oftentimes it’s beyond parody. For instance, we know Donald Trump is a wildly shady businessman who believes the purpose of the presidency is to enrich his family and friends, that he thinks the law is for suckers, and that he might be a tax cheat, but it would just be too much to learn that he was actively looking into making bribery legal. And yet!
    When conservatives realize they cannot win democratically, they will not abandon conservatism. They will abandon democracy.

    I understand it became illegal in US not very long ago and it is still legal in other EU countries. And it is still legal when US government does the bribery, for the benefit of US as a whole of course, wink wink So there are a lot of grey areas. And if Trump makes it legal then he should have no problem with Burisma-Bidens affair.

    This is another example of why they are dangerous as thought leaders, so much subversion:
    Noah Berlatsky: Trump voters motivated by racism may be violating the Constitution. Can they be stopped?

    Silly Barbos, laws aren't for republicans, or wealthy white people.

    Having a lot of money if you are in trouble never hurts. The poor never do so well.

    He just doesn't want to have to declare it on his taxes.

    When the truth about Epstein comes out, he'll probably want to make murder legal too. Retroactively of course.
