How is that working out for a campaign promise?
Was reading in the Daily Mail this morning that he's been waiving a shit load of lobbyists and lawyers into various Government departments and foisting chemical lobbyists and lawyers onto the EPA!
Seems counter to what he was saying...but then again doesn't everything?

Your problem is you can't help but take Trump literally. He's a skilled negotiator. He calls for extremes, then negotiates to a moderate final position, where he expected to end up in the 1st place! :D

verbal masturbation aside...if possible...what has that to do with conflicts of interest and ethics issued under waivers....

Fake news. :D

A perceived conflict of interest is not necessarily a real one. :cool:

I heard the Mango Monster's administration has, to date, hired 187 former lobbyists. Way to go. Nothing will really change until the money is removed from politics but as our esteemed SCOTUS has ruled-money is speech; you can't regulate speech, therefore unlimited campaign contributions to support a candidate thru a PAC or other nefarious organizations is a practice of one's 1st amendment rights to free speech and damn the consequences. IMHO when this gets overturned it will go down in history with the Dred Scott case and Bush Vs. Gore as one of the most egregious ruling in our history.
