Scams and Flimflams
BALTIMORE – For weeks, the top news headlines have been about politics. And politics has been all about the Republican Party candidate for president of the United States, Donald Trump.
The Establishment, the media, and most right-thinking people look around and sniff the air. Something stinks. And the smell, they say, is coming from that skunk, Trump.
Meanwhile, Hillary, all greased up with expensive perfume, glides by – all her double dealing, her millions in Wall Street speaking fees, her crony friends and supporters.
She and her husband have a combined net worth of $110 million – after a career spent devoted almost entirely to “public service.” Who asks where the money came from? Instead, the headlines are all about poor Donald.
For better or for worse, the 2016 presidential campaign was all about him. Not about his policies. Not about calm analysis of what was wrong and how it could be fixed.
It was always about him. And now, the nation’s attention is still focused on him and his peccadilloes – rather than Ms. Clinton and her scams, corruptions, and Deep State flimflams.
