1. pay for play

with the added bonus of playing a round of golf. My bet it on those days trump's golf score is the bestest of the club. Who wants to beat the man who has power over granting them lucrative deals and favorable legislation?

2. On a different DU post there is a report

that CREW is suing 45 for not providing the guest lists at Mar a Lago after rejecting their multiple requests.

The White House has 0 ethics! No wonder Walter Shaub resigned. I wrote to him in Jan to thank him for trying his best but after about 6 months with the new admin he cohldn't take the BS anymore. I wouldn't have been able to last 6 minutes before having a coronary.
