In other news, the Trump regime is reported looking for volunteers at the TSA to go to the southern border and operate as immigration officers. What could go wrong?

Meanwhile, lawmakers in Alabama have passed a bill to ban virtually all abortion in the state, making it a felony to perform an abortion.

Finally, business at Trump's most valuable property has reportedly fallen off a cliff according to the Washington Post.

At Doral, which Trump has listed in federal disclosures as his biggest moneymaker hotel, room rates, banquets, golf and overall revenue were all down since 2015. In two years, the resort’s net operating income — a key figure, representing the amount left over after expenses are paid — had fallen by 69 percent.

Even in a vigorous economy, the property was missing the Trump Organization’s internal business targets; for instance, the club expected to take in $85 million in revenue in 2017 but took in just $75 million.

“They are severely underperforming” other resorts in the area, tax consultant Jessica Vachiratevanurak told a Miami-Dade County official in a bid to lower the property’s tax bill. The reason, she said: “There is some negative connotation that is associated with the brand.

    This is beyond dangerous. Refugees and immigrants (legal or not) should never be placed into the custody of the same type of 1776 cos-playing yahoos that showed up armed and in body armor at the Bundy ranch. We’re going to end up with Abu Garehb on the Southern border. People will be hurt or worse.

    I agree with what Bob Cesca said in one of the recent shows. The red states are turning themselves into societal hell scapes in which no one who isn’t straight, white, Christian (the Pence brand) and affluent is going to be able to reasonably live. There’s going to be a refugee at blue state borders.

    Trump’s properties are going through some hard times? Sounds like the Trump brand needs to be made great again.
