  1. Talk about having a 💩 stain on ones Resume.. Nobody with brains desires to work in that snake pit .. 😉

  2. Wait for it” they are being treated very unfairly, like never before, believe me”


    • @Forrest Trump It’s a very sad and disturbing sign of the times that people might actually believe that something that is obviously sarcasm could be a serious comment by a defender of Donald Trump.

      It shows that the media campaign Trump and his cronies are running to devaluate the news is actually working.

      @Forrest Trump you are in the wrong reply section. Go to faux fox news. For your listening ears.

    • Witch-hunt! Very bigly unfair! Everyone is saying!

    • @Rowdy Dow Dow That song could go on longer than the full version of In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida.

  3. I call dibs on the boat. Thanks 🙋🏽‍♂️

  4. Draining the swamp, only the best people!! lol

  5. Would a Trump fan boy like to explain how the swamp seems to have gotten swampier?

  6. Give it to Puerto Rico. Sell the boat, truck and trailer so they can buy equipment to help them clean up. Corrupt to the core. Disgusting!!! 😡 Now I understand why they were taking so long to help them.

      Sonia, that is how it usually ends up… sadly auctions never get much of the value back, which was also the big caveat when they talked about the forfeitures included in Manafort’s conviction/indictment… it looks a bit more impressive on paper than at the end in the federal coffers.

    • @Ugly German Truths They can ship the cash/truck/boat/earth moving equipment to PR; they can use the boat as an emergency alternative means of transport, the truck/2 caterpillars would have been required to repair/rebuild damaged areas.

    • Sonia Galindo These people were all trump appointees, get your facts straight Sonia..

    • @Lyn W Sorry I don’t follow what or who you are responding to. I did not mention anything about appointees.

    • @Lyn W You need to re-read Miss Sonia’s comment…. then apologize to her!

  7. You need the CAT machines to fill the swamp. Then you need the boat to drive on the swamp.

  8. Bribable is a quality you need to be employed by the Trump administration.

    • More important is the ability and willingness to lie on behalf of the administration. I don’t think the corruption got them fired or withdrawn, but rather their inability to create half-assed lies to cover their tracks.

    • @Visteo Bman Like the song says: “To dumb to steal…”; being a greedy/liar without empathy/conscience is the norm in Trump’s kleptocracy. Trump’s base agreed with him, Trump would hire only the wealthy/the best people, proficient “Swamp” Critters.

  9. Yikes, his “best people” aren’t even the best criminals! FFS, how can anyone still support this clown parade of an administration? One bozo after another as they march their way towards jail.

  10. Give the money you took from Peurto Rico repair fund for your wall back to PR, and sue the heck out of Cobra and friends, because that’s where your wall money went. All those great people you know also know really great people. In the meantime, people have died, and you killed them. You and all of your administration are accessories to the crime.

  11. At this point, any new Trump hire knows going in they will only last as long as they remain a total yes man. You will work for Trump – NOT the country.

    • PC Shazaam To work for the Trump administration they will have to sell their soul, their integrity and their humanity. They will be remembered as an embarrassment to their families and their country. Frankly, it is not worth the return.

    • TRAITOR trump and republicans CRIMINAL s need timevout in hail. Can we put them thier NOW.please so we can clean uo this WHITE HOUSE and remove the REPUBLICAN TRAITORS.

    • Patricia Lucious | September 19, 2019 at 7:05 PM | Reply

      PC Shazaam Dollar Bills will cause um to work there.

  12. MAGA ???? The truth is that America has never been WEAKER than it is today. How? Think about it, if all the top jobs in government and the courts are taken by the most corrupt, ill qualified and partizan self serving sycophants then your ENTIRE security is riddled with cracks, holes and rot. Trump is appointing people to the highest positions who prioritise loyalty to HIM and not America, that in itself is enough to place the country in so many ways, in grave danger of abuse and weakness. It’s not the Trump family, it’s the Trump cartel. Good luck in 2020 sorting this lot out.

  13. Send this story to your Fox viewing friends and they will all say FAKE NEWS!

    I think trump would dig up Al Capone to make him Acting FEMA director. I’ll give him this: trump is consistent! Like a serial killer.

  15. Trump what a liar he says he knows the best people he can’t even find the best criminals these frauds keep getting caught

  16. 10 felony counts wow at this rate it’d be easier to count who hasn’t been charged or arrested in this administration of very fine people, the best mostest smartest people 😂

  17. Is there ANYONE in this administration that ISNT a croock???????? And are they just hiring crooks?

    There surs is alot of “acting” in this administration, but the problem is that NONE of them is any good at it …

  18. The Trump administration does vet the senior officials, they just are looking for criminals.

  19. A whole lot of people took money to render aid to Puerto Rico and pocketed the money…

    • Just think of where the billions of wall money is going to. I doubt much of that wall will really be built. What a waste!

    • Unfortunately i think we will find such things common in the Trump administration.

    • @Robert Herrera Oh you know without any doubt that soooo much of “the wall” money will go in his pocket. Unfortunately that’s a given. He’d stiff the contractor and pocket it all if he thought he could get away with it. And I have NO doubt in my mind that he hasn’t thought of how to do it.

  20. If crimes were presents, this would be one heck of a Christmas.
