Eiron, The Goddess of Irony Laughed So Hard She Farted

All that glitters…

Our Li’l buddy Eric Trump went on Judge Jeanine, was pitched a softball question, and somehow or another scored a home run for the other team:

Oh, yeah, Eric?

“Just hours before the Trumps’ Fox News appearances, Forbes reported that Eric and Don Jr. have sold more than $100 million of the family’s real estate since the January 2017 inauguration — including a $3.2 million deal in the Dominican Republic last year that is “the clearest violation of their father’s pledge to do no new foreign deals while in office.” Foreign money has also poured into the Trump International Hotel, located just blocks from the White House, which the president’s most recent financial disclosure indicated made him $41 million last year alone.

“In addition to Ukraine, the Trumps have also accused Hunter Biden of cashing in in China. But as the New York Times detailed in August, a $1.7 billion Trump Organization project in Indonesia received a $500 billion infusion from a state-owned Chinese construction company. And it’s not just Eric and Don Jr.; Ivanka Trump, despite working in the White House, continues to do business in China as well.

“And last year, Ivanka’s husband, White House official Jared Kushner, received a massive cash infusion from Qatar.”

    I don’t know why, but the constant talk of “doing deals” drives me bananas.

    MDavis –

    Because it’s as inelegant as “doing lunch,” or “taking a meeting.”

    It grates my nerves, too. Also.

      That’s part of it, but on reflection, it’s also the incongruity. It’s like your veterinarian constantly talking to you about, I don’t know, constructions projects or running a restaurant when you just want her to help you figure out what is wrong with your parrot. It is somewhat insulting, as though they are actively admitting, even bragging, that the whole reason they are in their positions is to take advantage of the emoluments and then having the double-damned brass nerve to bitch about journalists, congressmen, and other people mentioning it and pointing out that this is not only not their job but is actually contrary to the job they were “voted” into office to do. For this, I am setting aside that they were technically not, allegedly, voted into the office and that this sort of thing is exactly why they were put in the office, but not by American voters.
