Hell - we switched from their No. 77 in New Orleans to another for the French Quarter Fest in April.

They aren't getting one thin red cent of my blue money.

5. Not worried about security dangers

such as ISIS; not concerned about the death of Kurds; not concerned about her husband's involvement in morally bankrupt schemes but concerned about the loss of money.

Sounds like the two of them were made for each other and Trump.

17. not "common sense"

just fearful of losing money feeling sorry for herself

her quote...

Hes been extremely hard-working, she added. He came from immigrant parents, hes first generation here, he made his own wealth, hes worked his entire life hard, hes extremely generous. I mean, hell sit down and listen to anyone, take his time, go to bat for them, give his money. But this environment is so sad and vicious that there is no one who will stick up for him. I find it really pathetic.

11. So this is some wealthy guy who gave Trump-- not quite legally, apparently- $1m

and got a vanity plum ambassadorship in return, and didn't care enough about his job or the country to figure out what he's actually supposed to do, and lets himself get turned into a patsy/enforcer thug for the worst guy ever, and strong-arms actual professionals and helps to threaten the new president of a country trying hard to get democracy....

I guess he should have thought about possible reputational repercussions earlier.

Or something like that.

19. I am a little torn... I don't want whistleblowers to suffer -

their behavior should be honored and rewarded.

Then again, it certainly appears as the Sondlands will still be enjoying their position in the Top 1% of U.S. earners even if their hotels suffer.

28. Sondlond's not a whistle blower. He's a blowee. His...

... statements that have damaged trump were made out of stupidity and incompetence. Not out of some sense of patriotism.

22. I hadn't thought about that story since 11/16.

It takes on a special irony now, doesn't it?

Almost like he was mocking his marks by telling them the truth about himself.
