It came without ribbons! It came without tags! It came without packages, boxes, or bags!

I'm guessing the sweet PPP money she got paid for that "work retreat" in Cancun.

Cudd also stated on her “Jenny Louise” Facebook page that she received PPP funding to help pay her employees. An initial search of Small-Business-Forum.net shows Cudd Enterprises, which shows the same address as Becky’s Flowers, also received an Economic Injury Disaster Loan of $150,000. Cudd Enterprises LLC. also was awarded a $41,000 PPP loan according the Small Business Administration.

She wrote the following about receiving money, “Considering the massive amount of taxes I pay and the fact that my business qualified for it and I applied, I viewed the PPP as getting some of my money back which paid the nine people whom I employ for a couple months.”

Well then. We'll just have to let the internet speculate, Clue style.

How Mark Burnett Resurrected Donald Trump as an Icon of American Success

—snip—

“The Apprentice” was built around a weekly series of business challenges. At the end of each episode, Trump determined which competitor should be “fired.” But, as Braun explained, Trump was frequently unprepared for these sessions, with little grasp of who had performed well. Sometimes a candidate distinguished herself during the contest only to get fired, on a whim, by Trump. When this happened, Braun said, the editors were often obliged to “reverse engineer” the episode, scouring hundreds of hours of footage to emphasize the few moments when the exemplary candidate might have slipped up, in an attempt to assemble an artificial version of history in which Trump’s shoot-from-the-hip decision made sense. During the making of “The Apprentice,” Burnett conceded that the stories were constructed in this way, saying, “We know each week who has been fired, and, therefore, you’re editing in reverse.” Braun noted that President Trump’s staff seems to have been similarly forced to learn the art of retroactive narrative construction, adding, “I find it strangely validating to hear that they’re doing the same thing in the White House.”

Such sleight of hand is the industry standard in reality television. But the entire premise of “The Apprentice” was also something of a con. When Trump and Burnett told the story of their partnership, both suggested that Trump was initially wary of committing to a TV show, because he was so busy running his flourishing real-estate empire. During a 2004 panel at the Museum of Television and Radio, in Los Angeles, Trump claimed that “every network” had tried to get him to do a reality show, but he wasn’t interested: “I don’t want to have cameras all over my office, dealing with contractors, politicians, mobsters, and everyone else I have to deal with in my business. You know, mobsters don’t like, as they’re talking to me, having cameras all over the room. It would play well on television, but it doesn’t play well with them.”

“The Apprentice” portrayed Trump not as a skeezy hustler who huddles with local mobsters but as a plutocrat with impeccable business instincts and unparalleled wealth—a titan who always seemed to be climbing out of helicopters or into limousines. “Most of us knew he was a fake,” Braun told me. “He had just gone through I don’t know how many bankruptcies. But we made him out to be the most important person in the world. It was like making the court jester the king.” Bill Pruitt, another producer, recalled, “We walked through the offices and saw chipped furniture. We saw a crumbling empire at every turn. Our job was to make it seem otherwise.”

Trump maximized his profits from the start. When producers were searching for office space in which to stage the show, he vetoed every suggestion, then mentioned that he had an empty floor available in Trump Tower, which he could lease at a reasonable price. (After becoming President, he offered a similar arrangement to the Secret Service.) When the production staff tried to furnish the space, they found that local venders, stiffed by Trump in the past, refused to do business with them.

Also, the sheep are the righteous ones.

Matthew 25:31-46
New International Version

The Sheep and the Goats

31 “When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, he will sit on his glorious throne. 32 All the nations will be gathered before him, and he will separate the people one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. 33 He will put the sheep on his right and the goats on his left.

34 “Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. 35 For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, 36 I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’

37 “Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? 38 When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? 39 When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’

40 “The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’

41 “Then he will say to those on his left, ‘Depart from me, you who are cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels. 42 For I was hungry and you gave me nothing to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me nothing to drink, 43 I was a stranger and you did not invite me in, I needed clothes and you did not clothe me, I was sick and in prison and you did not look after me.’

44 “They also will answer, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or needing clothes or sick or in prison, and did not help you?’

45 “He will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me.’

46 “Then they will go away to eternal punishment, but the righteous to eternal life.”

I'm only surprised it's not shaped like Donny's hand.

Liz Uihlein doubled down on right wing talking points on the Uline company website:

IS AMERICA IN DECLINE?

Remarks by Russia's Vladimir Putin and the
actions of China's President Xi Jinping
indicate that they think America is on
the decline.

--------

Where is the U.S. in all this? I started asking people if they think America is on the decline. The expressions on their faces indicate the answer before they speak.

Drugs – I spoke with a restaurant owner in Colorado who said he'd have no employees if he started drug testing. At Uline, so many of our employees in the warehouse operate equipment that goes over 30 feet high. There is no way they could be under the influence of drugs.

Police – Protesters across the country want to defund the police as homicides and violent crimes soar. In Chicago, the city saw 336 homicides through June of this year, 33% more than at the same time in 2020.

Education – Kids seem to take some of the weirdest named courses today, far removed from hardcore writing and critical thinking, in my opinion. It's no wonder our children do so poorly in these basic skills.

Government Spending – Americans are a creative, feisty bunch, who I believe basically like to work. Excessive government benefits are discouraging our work ethic. As I write this, Uline has over 500 jobs available across North America.

The country has been through
worse and emerged stronger.
We need to reverse course on
some of this stuff quickly.

Ironically, one of Trump's superfans was killed in a wreck because he wasn't wearing a seatbelt.

Just finished reading Michael Bender's book. He followed some of Trump's Front Row Joes throughout and one of the leaders was killed in a wreck on the way home from a Trump rally. Killed when he was ejected from the vehicle.


Passionate 'Front Row Joe' Trump supporter dies in highway crash near St. Peter

Source: Star Tribune

A southwestern Minnesota man whose passionate support for President Donald Trump took him to dozens of political events around the country and recently to the White House was killed in a highway crash while returning from a political celebration in Florida.

Randal J. Thom, 60, of Lakefield died in a collision shortly before 4:30 p.m. Monday on Hwy. 169 north of St. Peter, the State Patrol said. Thom was driving his minivan south and hit a pickup truck that also was heading south, the patrol said.

Evidence of recent alcohol use by Thom was detected at the scene, according to the patrol. Thom was not wearing a seat belt, the patrol added.

The other driver, James A. Mollenhauer, 67, of nearby Le Sueur, survived his injuries and was taken to a Mankato hospital.

According to Bender the "evidence of recent alcohol use" was numerous unopened cans of beer in the wreckage. Thom's FRJ buddies think they were just what was left in his cooler as he drove home.
