Separation of Powers

In other news, the American Counseling Association has moved its 2017 convention from Nashville to San Francisco because Tennessee passed a "religious liberty" bill allowing counselors to deny service to LGBT patients.

Meanwhile, the Trump campaign reportedly has only $2.4 million in cash on hand. For comparison's sake, the Clinton campaign has $42 million in cash on hand (as of May) and Democrats have reserved over $100 million in ad spending. Team Trump has reserve $0 in ad spending.

Finally, the Trump campaign lost 2 staffers today: his campaign manager and an adviser who mocked the campaign manager. That means Trump now has 28 staffers, down from 30, right?

    Donald Trump’s campaign is a dumpster fire”. And that is what he would do to the country.
    Who has their kids as the inner circle of advisers in a presidential campaign? Politics is not a business.
    Except in Trump World. And Chris Christie does McDonald’s runs.

    • Apparently it was the family’s idea to change campaign managers….Can you see his kids and his wife making such major decisions for the country. It’s a nightmare to think that that orange haired buffoon would make decisions but his spoiled brats and wife? Oh hell no!

        I know. That kind of caught my eye to in a WTF kind of way. Want a real eye opener just check out the recent post by Ashby as to how Trump is actually spending large amounts of campaign cash on his own businesses. He, himself, is even on the payroll. I never knew how utterly corrupt he was until he ran for president.

    He doesn’t need cash on hand because he is still getting wall-to-wall coverage everywhere on TV. Hillary Clinton is barely mentioned in passing but Deadbeat Donald’s “crazy” is trotted out again and again for everyone to point and stare, meanwhile giving him free campaign exposure on his positions.

    • At this point, I’m not so sure that exposure is helping him.

    I love the fact that at least where LGBT issues are concerned bigotry is now exacting a cost that can be measured in cold hard cash.

    So Trump has now discarded his head Brown Shirt…. Can the rampant bigotry and fear mongering now come to an end? No… Didn’t think so.
