Most of us end up (myself included), following people who agree with us. We also go to boards that agree with us, we self select to people and sites that confirm our beliefs.

I will toss in that many of us also read right wing sites just to get an idea of how "the other side is spinning" an individual story, but we don't follow them. So beware of that feeling of everyone is outraged, it may only be your self selected group is outraged.

Hunter isn’t running for office, while all of trumps kids are firmly planted in the administration. The hypocrisy is mind boggling.

He can't donate his salary to any of the federal departments or agencies. By law it goes back to the Treasury. If he had really donated money that made a difference it would had needed to go to a legitimate charity.

Besides, he has been scamming the federal government (taxpayers) by charging it for use of his hotels and golf courses. And any side businesses that his family have ingrained with the federal government.

I ask, “prove it”......crickets!

We know he’d be bragging that up and showing signed checks, not that one of his checks would be worth anything.
