"TRUMP LOOTS AMERICA...before the fall"!

true story

Around 20 years ago while living in Maryland, I was pushing a grocery cart in the passing lane doing a big weekly shop.  With my cart half full - suddenly all the lights went out & it was black on black.

There was silence & then murmurs rolling from one aisle to the next like a chorus gaining momentum.

Then, for one brief moment - my mind went into an even darker place.  I could take whatever & who would know?

Did I say I - I meant anyone.  Hee hee

But, the mind works in mysterious ways & found myself outside the store into the light of the honorable - scratching my head, leaving my groceries behind.

Today, it occurred to me that before he's finally caught, Donald Trump may be doing the opposite - gathering the spoils to add to his already overflowing larder.

I figure he & his family had over 100 days to do the dirty, plus the 18 month campaign-branding-circus & the opportunity to move money from one Russian Laundromat to the Cayman's, to the Alps & thru Melania's legs - making its way into Trump's fur-lined pocket.

I don't have confirmation on the legs part yet; but I'll get back to you.  ha ha

Throw in the mysterious missing 18 days between the time Trump was warned by Sally Yates about Flynn & there you have it - a bunch of hunches & so far; no sound of handcuffs clicking!

But you've got to admit, it's very exciting to be a thief at the highest level - after all, Trump accomplished the ultimate & needs to reward himself - he even told a Gold Star family he made a sacrifice giving up the good life.

Don't get me wrong - while he's unravelling, he still has the good life: a rich single man with a big bed & a bowling alley, can sleep-in till 4 - or until they bring in the breakfast tray with The Washington Post IMPEACH headline & that one angry nun with her poster at the White House gate:

Trump stoops to new low with KFC Commercial,


Trump may not have an end game in sight, but the pickings are his to take in the interim - from hosting more Mar-a-Lago boondoggles, to his future international connections shaking every piggy bank - from franc to ruble - playing no favorites, as it all comes out in the off shore wash.

Tony Schwartz, co-writer of the best-selling book, "The Art of the Deal" & star witness to Trump's tics & flaws; now predicts Trump will resign & with his usual spin of a phrase - turn defeat into a victory.

A little late for 'you can't fire me - I quit' - but still protecting his remaining tail feathers.

Or Trump may simply do what I did when I left my old job in the Gov't - took pens & paper clips  & never looked back!

As for today & my sticky fingers conundrum - now when I grocery shop I'm like a Neanderthal hunter & gatherer - I grab & run.  And, of course - pay for it!

Isn't this the guy people voted for because they figured he didn't need money and so wouldn't be corruptible?

This entire thing is embarrassing. I mean its embarrassing knowing a wannabe shoplifter.

Thanks kosh - that's the guy, all right!  I don't know if I want him to go to prison or have him stripped of all his money - like in Mel Brooks old movie "Life Stinks".
