The Daily GOP Ignominious: Corruption "Pay For Access" (Really?)

Image result for poor whites love trump

If you have any doubt about what's to come after Trump's inauguration, his son's will give you a clear picture.

Check out this pdf copy of an invitation to the first of trumps opening events: TMZ linked.

If you didn't visit the linked item, you missed the following:

Donald Trump's family will be the main attraction at a fundraiser the day after the inauguration, celebrating hunters, shooters and fishermen who probably pushed Trump over the line in November. 
TMZ obtained a draft of the invite for "Opening Day," a massive party that will be thrown at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in D.C. 
The attire is "Camouflage & Cufflinks ... Jeans, boots and hats are welcome."

If you want information from a most credible source, The Center Of Public Integrity offers a well-developed piece on Trump's organization of self-aggrandizement with accompanying "pay to play" from the nation's uber wealthy.

In some circles, the event is referred to as a "get-together."  As is the case with all "get-togethers" someone conceived of the event, organized the event and takes part in past event activities (in this case counting the cash). Since we stated the responsible parties in the first sentences of this piece, let's visit with the CPI for more related to this first of the New Year's executive money grab. 

Who’s behind the get-together? 
Walter Kinzie, chief executive officer of Texas event management company Encore Live, confirmed to the Center for Public Integrity that a nonprofit group called the Opening Day Foundation hired his firm to manage Opening Day 2017. 
Center for Public Integrity review of Texas incorporation records found the Opening Day Foundation was created less than a week ago, on Dec. 14. Unlike political committees, such nonprofits aren’t required by law to reveal their donors, allowing sponsors to write seven-figure checks for access to the president while staying anonymous, if they choose.

We will end this piece with a quote from the late former US President Lyndon B. Johnson.  There is no need to run to Snopes to check out the quote, We took it from Snopes.
President Lyndon B. Johnson once said, "If you can convince the lowest white man he's better than the best colored man, he won't notice you're picking his pocket. Hell, give him somebody to look down on, and he'll empty his pockets for you."

We value reminding readers of a deep inner core of Trumpism which without question helped question helped with votes from the 48 to 50 percent of voters who bothered to vote in November.

If you take Johnson's cogency regarding demagoguery and extrapolate the message to "the Wall", ISIS, "lock her up", and "China" you have the essence of Trumpism and his messages to the uninformed.
