he survives because the Republican party is soulless?


Sen Cramer (R - ND) on holding the G7 at Trump Doral: "I don’t have any concerns about it other than just politically how it appears.
"It may seem careless politically, but on the other hand there’s tremendous integrity in his boldness and his transparency," he says.

Sen Rounds (R - SD) asked if he has any issues with the G7 being at Doral: “Show me where there’s a violation of law, I’m not sure that there is, not that I’m aware of.”
Q: I mean, you don’t think it might violate the emoluments clause, or anything like that?
Rounds: “I’ll let the folks who look at the ethics rules and so forth that he is subject to make that decision. But I’m not going to try and comment off hand on it.”

Yep.. totally soulless.. its a fucking shameful disgrace.. if the very concepts of integrity and loyalty to the constitution of the US mean nothing if all institutions (including the one I work for which is going broke because Trump won't pay the US share... seriously we got a letter a couple weeks ago saying we might not get paid next month) are to be dismantled in favor of fucking base racism then lets just fucking hang it up..

this is a disgusting time..
