Like he needs the money. There are many people in America who are barely getting by, but they wouldn’t sell out their country. Trump is a fucking loathsome creature.

Frankly I'm surprised that General Kelly hasn't found a way to permanently shut up TFG.

Right wing news outlets that ran with the story made it all about Dijon to avoid saying he wanted something "spicy brown" and to focus on the "foreign" aspect instead. The attempt to slander a popular Black President over hot dog condiment choice had layers of pettiness in the underlying racism.

Among those stashed documents, in the hands of the FBI, that details who bought the secrets? Or who knew they were for sale and did nothing? Or a collection of filthy rich bidders for the documents.

Ok, I have to stop myself from imagining the worst.
