Isn’t there laws about Nepotism in the white house?
Trump should have been impeached the minute he was sworn in, on nepotism and emoluments alone.
An Op Ed piece I read yesterday opined that he would be open to Enter being called before the impeachment hearings if Don Jr, Eric and Ivanka also appeared. I would like to see all four at the witness table at the same time – it would make great television and an interesting political comparison.
Rand Paul and Mitch McConnell - thanks Kentucky! /s
Rand Paul still thinks KY Jelly is some sort of marmalade you put on toast and a classic example of Kentucky politicians. I can’t wait until the next elections and see how they ask fare.
too bad the neighbor wasn’t able to knock some sense into ol’ rand…
Whenever I see Rand Paul in a television interview, it seems to me his words are like little greased worms that slide from his mouth and squirm all over the place and can’t be fully grasped for coherency and sense. Born to the political manor/ manner, is he.
During a campaign rally for President Trump on Nov. 4, Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) illegally called on the media to “do your job,” and print the name of the Whistleblower."
Rand Paul may force vote to bring Hunter Biden as witness in impeachment trial
Jul 27, 2019 – Advocates for a massive Russian natural gas pipeline project have a powerful, quiet ally in Congress: Sen. Rand Paul, a Kentucky Republican
Rand Paul, another rat faced Russian loving above the law Republican.
My eye roll looks like a Reno slot machine in the bus station.
There are multiple reasons why the neighbor beat up on Rand, I’m sure of it.
Republicans are out of touch with reality.
The message is also approved by Ivanka and her husband.
No fan of Rand Paul, but it takes more ability to get elected to the US Senate than it does to get plugged in without any record of or need for relevant experience to a foreign company looking for US political connections. And then there’s Chelsea Clinton…
It does make one wonder what they think “networking” means, anyhow.
For the clueless, of which we seem to have many, it means getting special consideration because of who you know. Oddly enough, most of us seem to be somewhat acquainted with our parents.
This is the first time I can recall that Republicans have said anything negative about riding on your parents coattails. Like, oh, Donald Trump did on Fred Trumps coattails. In case you didn’t know, Donnie got his money and his position from Fred. In no way whatsoever can Donald Trump claim to be a self made man.
We’re very likely to have the proof of that between Thanksgiving and Christmas, as a matter of fact. Trump has lost in every possible way in his attempts to keep his precious tax returns secret. His final gasp is the Supreme Court, and they are not going to take that up because it’s well established law and they just are not going to go there under the current Chief Justice – unless he shocks ever legal scholar in the country by doing so. And he doesn’t do that.
Those returns are going to show him living on cash flow, and well underwater on his buildings and net worth. And that’s why banks don’t want to lend to him any more, because he’ll declare bankruptcy in a heartbeat, and get more favorable terms from a court. That’s on the record. Trump calls that “smart business”.
Pundit Gail Collins: " The House Intelligence Committee kicked off its public impeachment hearings Wednesday with the famous phone call between Trump and Zelensky, who was ebullient about winning the parliamentary elections. After swooping through congratulations, Trump got to “I would like you to do us a favor, though.” Which of course involved an investigation into Hunter Biden’s business dealings.Much easier to move through this part if we all agree in advance that taking a big-bucks job from a Ukrainian gas company when you know nothing whatsoever about gas is acceptable only if your father is not a famous politician and you won the post in an international lottery.But before we leave the subject, people, is it fair to point out that while the committee was holding its hearing, Trump was meeting with his great friend Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan? And to wonder if they took the opportunity to discuss Erdogan’s son-in-law, the national finance minister, who is friends with White House adviser Jared Kushner?"
[I usually post from conservative pundits, like George Will, who has publicly called Trump “our shabbiest president” and “a sad embarrassing wreck of a man”, or Michael Gerson, who has publicly called Trump “infantile, malignant, and unfit”. But in this case I decided what the heck.]
“We have to keep Democrats from using nepotism to get ahead. That’s OUR gig!”
Rand Paul – another example of how stupid one can be and still get a medical degree.
Rand Paul — the Libertarian Lightweight.
As much as I despise both of the Paul’s, can someone please point to how Ron used his office to get a job for Rand?
Same for Trump. None of his kids have paid govt jobs. They all derive their (huuge) incomes from private business enterprises that are not part of an extortion operation by the sitting POTUS or VPOTUS.
I have no doubt that they derive some revenue increases just by sharing the Trump name, but that is true for the relatives of all POTUS’s over the last 30 odd years, perhaps longer. Billie Carter, Hugh Rodham, even Obama’s relatives in Africa enjoyed some notoriety and revenue opportunities purely based on the relationship.
Aw! He has his father’s hypocrisy.
