Wormlike amphibian named for Trump


OK, the worm doesn’t have a combover – usually!

❝ A worm-like creature that lives underground was named after President Donald Trump because of his attitude toward climate change.

❝ EnviroBuild, a company that makes sustainable building materials, paid $25,000 to name the limbless amphibian Dermophis donaldtrumpi as part of a fundraiser for the Rainforest Trust, a nonprofit conservation group.

❝ Aidan Bell, EnviroBuild’s cofounder, said in a statement on Tuesday that for Trump, “burrowing” his head underground helps him “when avoiding scientific consensus on anthropogenic climate change” and appointing energy lobbyists to the Environmental Protection Agency, “where their job is to regulate the energy industry.”

I know, I know. Folks at BI added Trump’s hair to the photo of that innocent little amphibian.

Trump Foundation gets to dissolve and giveaway leftover$ to legit charities


Fake president must give up favorite personal piggy bank

❝ President Donald Trump’s charitable foundation reached a deal Tuesday to go out of business, even as Trump continues to fight allegations he misused its assets to resolve business disputes and boost his run for the White House.

New York’s attorney general and lawyers for the Trump Foundation agreed on a court-supervised process for shutting down the charity and distributing about $1.7 million in remaining funds to other nonprofit groups…

This leaves his presidentship campaign, transition, inauguration and real estate empire continuing under investigation.

❝ NY State AG Barbara Underwood cited “a shocking pattern of illegality involving the Trump Foundation — including unlawful coordination with the Trump presidential campaign, repeated and willful self-dealing, and much more.”

The foundation operated as “little more than a checkbook to serve Mr. Trump’s business and political interests,” she said.

Who says Republicans don’t understand perpetual motion? As long as it involves pocketing other peoples’ money – they never stop.
