A curated collection of videos, quotes and facts
... for sharing.
We finally really did it. You maniacs, you nonvoters, you Trump supporters, you blew it all up. Damn you! You blew it all to hell!!!
We've gone and done it now. Tick tock...
This President-Elect prefers to use Twitter to speak to the masses and hasn't held a news conference since July, 2016. Seriously.
"Sniff Sniff, Rigged.. Sniff sniff, New York Times...Sniff sniff, Tweet, tweet..." and oh yeah, "Millions of illegal voters voted me into office."
The artist Bill Day tells it like it is.

January 4, 2017 ~ Wishing all of you a hopeful New Year. Be kind to one another, we're all we have left.
People living in the U.S.
Approximately 319,000,000 humans.
People eligible to vote
Only approximately 231,000,000 Americans are eligible to vote. So nearly a third of the population has no say right there.
People who voted
128,835,833 people voted for either Trump or Hillary.
So now we are down to a little over 40% of our total population participating in the voting process.
46.9% of eligible voters stayed home.
People who voted for Trump
62,979,879 votes for Trump.
People who voted for Hillary
65,855,954 people voted for Clinton.
In the end, Hillary Clinton won the popular vote by more than 2.8 million. But America doesn't elect its President by popular vote. Our electoral college decides who our Presidents are and it is made up of only 507 individuals. That's right, of the 319 million people living in the United States, only 507 of them choose our President. And there we are. A man whose financial entanglements are so deep that he could not have a casual conversation with any leader on earth without it having a direct financial effect on his pockets - or those of his children - is going to be the new "leader of the free world."
Since it seems we are stuck with him for the next four years, this website is still doing research for as long as we can. We have looked into Trump's history as a builder, his prowess as a real estate manager, and his big finish as a birther. We've looked into his history with women (before the Billy Bush revelations), his relationship with Russia, the status of him not releasing his taxes, and lots of other fun stuff like tracking where he makes all his Trump branded products.
As we attempt to keep up with all the info coming out, you can find the results of our research by scrolling through our Table of Contents. For now we are working on vetting Trump's appointees and this page should be updated with that info by Inauguration.
For The (White) People
A Business Associate
A successful businessman like Donald Trump doesn't have much of a public record in policy making to stand behind, so fans of the billionaire point to his incredible business portfolio as proof of his ability to lead. Since Trump announced he was running for office, hundreds of his former business associates have shared what it's like working with the amazing Donald Trump and the Trump brand. From Toronto's Trump Tower to Trump's Tee Off Extravaganza in Turnberry, Scotland, Trump's holdings are huge, and the effects of his business acumen are felt far and wide. (more...)
If you're looking for a candidate for President of the United States, look no further. Trump's your guy. Once he begins a project, he sees it to fruition. All the way. Just check out some of the amazing buildings he's built, the companies he's run, the way he treats his subcontractors, and the longevity of his dreams. Wherever the Trump brand has gone, its left a mark. He never waivers from his initial plans, he's a man of his word, and that's a man we need in The White House. Anyone who has his finger on the carotid artery of the nation like Trump ought to be put in charge of something, no? (more...)
A Family Man
Seen here with his first wife, his second wife, and his third wife, it is clear that Trump is pro-marriage, and also clearly pro-marriage between a man and a woman, and a woman, and a woman. Each of these partnerships have proved fruitful. His first wife, Ivana, to whom he was married for 14 years, is still a close daily adviser of Trump the candidate. Their marriage was survived by three children. Donald John Jr., Ivanka Marie, and Eric Fredrick. His second wife, Marla, lasted six years, and brought their daughter Tiffany into the family.
Other than giving birth to his youngest son, Barron, however, it is unclear, what his current wife, Melania Trump, brings to the table. After a chunk of her speech at the RNC was revealed to be plagarized, wholesale, from Michelle Obama's speech to the DNC eight years earlier - and after she went out of her way earlier that day to tell the press she wrote the whole thing herself - we're not sure if her command of the English language is as proficient as we were led to believe, and some people are saying she's nothing more than an extension of Donald's ego. Certainly, we would never say such a thing. But someone tweeted it, so... (more...)
A Sports Enthusiast
As the foremost golf developer in the world, Donald J. Trump has built what he commonly refers to as "the greatest golf portfolio ever assembled by one man." Beginning with its first Palm Beach, Florida acquisition in 1999, Trump International Golf Club now has 18 world-class properties.
Oh yeah, and he likes football too. A great spender on talent, in 1984 Trump arrived on the USFL scene and promptly made a reputation for himself as a free spending financial pacesetter. Shelling out the big bucks for players, bidding up their paychecks, put some of the other teams in a financial vice. That strategy, along with his input to move the proposed play schedule from spring to fall, turned a potentially viable venture, the fabulous USFL, into a goldmine for Trump, allowing him to pick up teams for a song (or rather an "undisclosed amount") when they struggled to keep up. Had the USFL stuck to its original springtime concept and been more financially sound, we might still have the annoying full year of primetime madness some liberal football fans crave. Perhaps that's why some people say he practices unsportmanslike behavior.
To quote Trump, "nobody knows how to work the system better than me." And through a genius move, Donald Trump was able to defer fighting in the Vietnam War on five different occasions, four with student deferments and later he was medically disqualified from service by claiming to have bone spurs in one of his feet. When asked during the 2016 election cycle which foot it was, he couldn't remember but has made it clear that the information is available "in the record." In a cheeky 1997 interview with Howard Stern, man's man and apparent successful draft-dodger Donald Trump once said that the danger he faced from getting sexually transmitted diseases was his own “personal Vietnam.” (more...)
Trump is absolutely right. He has always been vocal about his views on Iraq. In a 2002 interview with Howard Stern, when asked if he supported the invasion of Iraq, Trump said, "Yeah, I guess so." Later, when we were negotiating our 2007 departure from Iraq, Donald told Wolf Blitzer, "You know how they get out? They get out. That's how they get out. Declare victory and leave. Because I'll tell you, this country is just going to get further bogged down. They’re in a civil war over there, Wolfe, There's nothing we're going to be able to do with a civil war. They are in a major civil war." In point of fact, those are the only two times Trump publicly commented on Iraq prior to running for office, but we'll give him the benefit of the doubt, perhaps he said it at cocktail parties. Certainly, by 2015, Trump was sure he was agin at the time. (more...)
The real estate mogul helped to bring in a recorded-shattering 24 million viewers with his first ever showing at a Republican presidential debate. Then Donald drew 32.2 million viewers to watch the final night of the RNC. Trump knows his appeal, his power, so he has the media eating out of his short-fingered hands. With this candidate, the ratings-driven psychosis is clearly widespread. In fact, Trump's rightly dubbed himself a “ratings machine” and hastens to tell interviewers he should be getting paid for raking in viewers. He'll bring the oval office the highest ratings it's ever received, and if we know Donald, he'll find a way to make bank on it.
He's a great humanitarian folks. He gives and gives and gives. Bigly. And at the same time, Trump insists, “I didn’t want to have credit” for charitable donations. He's one of the good guys folks. Believe me. The man gives in such a way, it'll make your head spin. He gives so much people are sick and tired of getting what he gives. That's how much he gives. And what he pledges, well, that's nothing compared to what comes out of his pockets (i.e. nothing). In fact we found that Trump gives to charity almost as much as he pays in taxes. And since he's a billionaire, that's gotta be like a bunch. Right?
