    In 2007, Donald Trump spent $20,000 that belonged to his charity — the Donald J. Trump Foundation — to buy a six-foot-tall portrait of himself during a fundraiser auction at his Mar-a-Lago Club in Florida.

    If Trump did not give the painting to a charity — or find a way to use it for charitable purposes — he may have violated IRS rules against “self-dealing,” which prohibit nonprofit leaders from spending charity money on themselves.

    Jody Young, the painter’s former manager, said that at the time he had spoken directly to Melania Trump about how the painting would be framed and displayed.

    Her plan was “to hang it in either the boardroom or the conference room of the club,” Young said.

    It is still unclear where the painting is now, or how long — if any time at all — it was on display at the private golf club. But tax experts say that an arrangement like the one described by Young could violate Internal Revenue Service rules.

    All awhile ignoring the crimes of Mrs Clitoris. Doing noting but to deflect the sins of that women and her camp onto Trump and his camp; how deplorable.

    UMayNeverKnow saidYour tit-for-tat postings (as well as others') are quite immature. Neither candidate is a saint. I just hope Killery or Illary (whatever you want to call her) kicks the bucket before November. I despise that cunt. Nothing could make me vote for her. If voting for her would prevent you from dying, I'm afraid you'd be pushing up daisies.

    And no, I have no intention of voting for Trump either.


    And throwing the c-word around in a news and politics forum is so mature.

    Yes, 4-letter words and other epithets do not substitute for intelligence or political wisdom. But that's about all the rabid supporters of the madman Trump have. They certainly can't support his wacky positions, they'd be laughed off this site. (Or maybe just tolerated & pitied out of polite charity, and Left-Wing liberality & tolerance. Concepts alien to the dogmatic & intolerant Right)

    Oh but, don't forget, he's definitely not a Trump supporter. Before long, he'll be posting smoothie recipes and telling everyone to vote for Jill Stein.

    Reminds me of the late and not lamented southbeach1500's reign of Right Wing propaganda on this site. He'd claim he wasn't a Republican or a Right Winger, but an "Independent".

    Well, if it talks like a Right Wing bigot, and acts like a bigot, it IS a Trump supporter. Trump is a magnet for these characters.

    It isn't tit-for-tat, it's a stand alone issue.

    So is Trump (SCREW) U, his racism in apartment renting, and his close multinational business dealing. he says they will go into a "blind trust" but headed by his children who are leading his political campaign! That isn't blind.....it's fraught with conflict of interest.

    Oh, and you douche bags just proved you are misogynists and are DEPLORABLE.

    Coming from one of our biggest bigots. How could we expect anything less from someone who supports another Clinton in the White House. LMFAO.

    Also available in blue or white. My husband & I each have one of these caps, and get great responses from our community here. Made in the USA (not China as the Trumps caps have been - how does THAT make America great again?), the profits go to the HRC.

    Oh great! Another hate-spewing candidate for my Ignore button. Amazing what some people think passes for political comment or adult conversation.

    Oh! as if you, Slimey Limey, and Fart Deco have ever taken the high road in these political forums or others. Please. You three are the poster children for immature commentary! Neither of you three old queens couldn't disagree civilly with anyone if his life depended on it.


    Whatever you may think of their commentary, none of the above (unlike you) are hiding behind yet another anonymous profile. At least they can be judged transparently. No one knows who or what you are, other than another petulant right-wing retread.

    Money well spent. Poor people would just piss that money away.
