The Teflon Donnie

A day or two ago (I lose track anymore) I posted an opinion by a citizen of the UK listing the reasons the Brits do not like Donald Trump (putting it mildly). Today, a UK friend has chimed in with his view of Trump, his many scams, and now his attempt to destroy the USPS as we know it. I’m coming to see that our friends across the pond see our own situation more clearly than we do sometimes. Thanks David … great summation!


During the 1980,s the Teflon Don, John  Gotti of the New York Gambino family was so named because he survived 3 high profile trials. That the trials were fixed didn’t come out until later. He died in 2002 in prison though.

I mention this only for the similarity to Teflon Donnie who may or may not be associated with any crime families in New York other than his own. Trump University ran a scam . They offered courses in real estate and asset management and wealth creation. The organisation was not accredited so awarded no certificates but used high pressure tactics to sell retreat places.There was a lawsuit in 2013 which doesn’t seem to have gone anywhere. But two class action cases in federal Court llad to him saying he would not settle but then after being given the Presidency in 2016 he settles the cases for 25 million.

  1. I came across this post on “The BUTHIDARS” very early this morning after indulging my Propensity for Loquacity elsewhere whilst consuming a goblet of a very fine wine during the process! Well I should have known that such an enlightened perspective as that of David Prosser’s would wend its way to become a re-blog on your equally enlightening blog! In an attempt at brevity, of which I am not known to possess, I will repeat my often said…Thank-you! Not for myself alone, though it is every bit as good when revisited, rather for those unfortunates who ( if not for you) would not have received it for themselves!!
