In other news, Iran's Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif says Trump's speech at the UN today was "shameless and ignorant." Actually, it was worse than that.

Meanwhile, none of the funds leftover from Trump's inauguration bonanza have been donated to charity as promised.

Finally, Trump is reportedly using campaign and RNC funds to pay his legal bills in the Russian interference investigation. That would be a first.

NEW YORK (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump is using money donated to his reelection campaign and the Republican National Committee to pay for his lawyers in the probe of alleged Russian interference in the U.S. election, according to two people familiar with the matter.

The U.S. Federal Election Commission allows the use of private campaign funds to pay legal bills arising from being a candidate or elected official.

While previous presidential campaigns have used these funds to pay for routine legal matters such as ballot access disputes and compliance requirements, Trump would be the first U.S. president in the modern campaign finance era to use such funds to cover the costs of responding to a criminal probe, said election law experts.

Obviously this means anyone who donates to his campaign or the RNC, even if they're small donors, are covering Trump's legal bills for possibly conspiring with the Russia government.

It's not clear why a supposed billionaire would need to use small donor money to pay his legal bills. I'm sure he doesn't need to, but he's a rich cheapass so he'll do it anyway.

    I think in his walnut brain trump believes that any deal not crafted (or “architected” as Ivanka would say) by him his a bad deal (and I think we can all agree that trump is terrible at deal making). I’d be willing to bet that he doesn’t even know what’s involved in the Iran nuclear deal…he only knows that it was done while Obama was in office so it just CAN’T be good. I truly hate this fucking creature called trump.

    • Oh god does Ivanka really talk that way? I think I’m going to puke.

      Seconded on Trump not knowing thing one about the Iran Deal. His ignorance is on display constantly

      • Yes, she does. Her book uses the verb “architected” repeatedly. I’d like to “architect” a prison for the entire Trump family. I can’t wait for the day they go away and we never have to hear or be embarrassed by their ignorant a$$es ever again,.

        • I guess I picked the right day to eat lunch at chipotle. That is perfectly grammatical English, which permits us to turn any word into a verb. But that doesn’t mean it’s always a good idea. in fact it’s usual a bad idea to verb other parts of speech, you just come off, well, sounding like Ivanka. I don’t she could possibly sound more pretentious. Ugh, I’m with you. It’s as Bob said in his last podcast, the whole agglomeration that is the Trumps just feels a group of aliens desperately trying to act human. Every new thing I learn about them just makes them more and more pathetic.

        • I have…. I have too many words for that. Short ones. It sounds as though the whole brood is borderline illiterate. They certainly don’t read. That’s what I get for ignoring the book at first.
