Yet another business is removing the Trump name from their buildings as the president continues to embarrass the nation.

Still waiting for his kids to have the name removed from their birth certificates.

The residents of a Manhattan condominium called “Trump Place” have voted to remove the president’s name from the tower’s facade, the latest in a string of properties that have distanced themselves from the Trump brand since Election Day 2016.

Unit owners in the Upper West Side building, a 46-story tower at 200 Riverside Blvd., were informed of the decision to remove the signs Wednesday afternoon in an email from the condo board.

According to the email, 69.3 percent of owners who participated in a vote in September and early October said they were in favor of taking down President Trump’s name. As a result, the board said, it had “passed a resolution to remove the Signage.”

The change will not affect the building’s legal name, “200 Riverside Boulevard at Trump Place,” only the signs “TRUMP PLACE” on its east and west facades.

“We are pleased to have resolved this matter democratically. Our entire community has engaged in a thorough and respectful deliberative process regarding how to address the signage on our building,” the board wrote in its email, according to a copy obtained by The Washington Post. “We encourage everyone to move forward and respect the will of the community.”

I predicted before that by the end of Trump’s four years in office, assuming he makes it that long, of course, his name will be synonymous with corruption, cowardice, and racism.

I would be willing to bet that by then almost every single building and product bearing the Trump brand will have gone out of business, or will have rebranded themselves to something a little more palatable. 

You know such as “Shit Towers” or something less repugnant like that.

    Previous presidents have banned discrimination and allowed a very narrow exemption for religious reasons. Now President Donald Trump is planning to expand that loophole.
    Ambiguity in religious liberty laws, policy, and litigation has been inherent to the evangelical right’s strategy.

    OT/ In ONE DAY. 8% of Georgia’s registered voters — were cut from the voter rolls.
    “The purge was noteworthy for another reason: For an estimated 107,000 of those people, their removal from the voter rolls was triggered not because they moved or died or went to prison, but rather because they had decided not to vote in prior elections, according to an APM Reports analysis. Many of those previously registered voters may not even realize they’ve been dropped from the rolls. If they show up at the polls on Nov. 6 to vote in the heated Georgia governor’s race, they won’t be allowed to cast a ballot.

    Nine mostly Republican states have use it or lose it laws. ”

      Georgia civil rights organizations including, Georgia Coalition for the People’s Agenda, Asian-Americans Advancing Justice-Atlanta, Georgia State Conference of the NAACP, New Georgia Project, Georgia Association of Latino Elected Officials, and ProGeorgia State Table.

      The Georgia groups’ legal counsel, Danielle Lang, senior legal counsel, voting rights and redistricting at the Campaign Legal Center (CLC) said in a statement provided to PoliticusUSA, “Georgia voters can’t afford to wait. Their fundamental right to vote on November 6 is imperiled by no fault of their own, but rather by Kemp’s continued use of the state’s flawed exact match process. The voters impacted by this process are often newly naturalized citizens voting for the first time. We should be welcoming them to our political community, not interrogating them.”

    “Congressman Cummings is a smart guy and savvy guy and politic politician, and I don’t think he’s going to come out before the election and say that’s impeachable. But that’s the kind of story that you might invent to teach people what impeachable means.”

    This is about as open and shut of a case of a presidential felony as there could be. The President blocked the FBI from moving out of a building because it would hurt his hotel business located across the street. It’s not a theory there are documents, witnesses, and presidential directives all available as evidence.

    Rep. Elijah Cummings explained how Trump screwed the taxpayers for personal financial gain on Maddow’s show:
    The president personally interfered with government operations in a way that would net him financial profit. It is a textbook abuse of power and corruption. For any other public official, it would be a felony. For Trump, it means impeachment.”

      Perhaps most unsatisfying: Mueller’s findings may never even see the light of day.

      “That’s just the way this works,” said John Q. Barrett, a former associate counsel who worked under independent counsel Lawrence Walsh during the Reagan-era investigation into secret U.S. arms sales to Iran. “Mueller is a criminal investigator. He’s not government oversight, and he’s not a historian.”
      Government officials will first get a chance to scrub the special counsel’s findings for classified details, though, involving everything from foreign intelligence sources to information gleaned during grand jury testimony that the law forbids the government from disclosing. The White House, for one, has indicated it might try to butt into the proceedings.”< YA THINK?

      “Project Lakhta,” an organization attempting to “to sow discord in the U.S. political system.” She is not currently in U.S. custody.

      NBC News reported that the group had attacked John McCain, Paul Ryan, Marco Rubio, Mitch McConnell, and former President Barack Obama.

      The foreign organization had prepared “a scheme to spend in excess of $10 million since the beginning of the year on targeted social media ads and web postings,”

      he Justice Department has brought its first criminal case over alleged Russian interference in the 2018 midterm elections.

      Elena Khusyaynova, 44, a St. Petersburg, Russia-based accountant, was charged in a criminal complaint with conspiracy to defraud the United States for taking part in a scheme to spend in excess of $10 million since the beginning of the year on targeted social media ads and web postings intended “to sow division and discord in the U.S. political system.”

      “There’s no plan to change the current mix of ads. We have a plan, we’re executing the plan,”
      The ad implies that Democrats’ support for Kavanaugh’s accuser means black men wouldn’t be protected from unfounded rape claims.

      A woman in the ad says that “white Democrats will be lynching black folk again.”

      “I’m voting to keep Congressman French Hill and the Republicans, because we have to protect our men and boys,” the woman in the ad says. “We can’t afford to let white Democrats take us back to bad old days of race verdicts, life sentences and lynchings when a white girl screams rape.”

    First: Raise the cap on income subject to Social Security payroll taxes.
    Second: negotiate lower drug prices.
    Third: To deal with a basic reason why Social Security and Medicare are running out of money, allow more young immigrants into the U.S.

    This isn’t {Little} rocket {MAN} science.

    “Trump won’t apologize, of course, nor will his devoted base hold his remarks against him. To the contrary, this is what they love about him — the contempt for a free press, the celebration of male thuggishness, the mindless emotional outbursts,” “Somehow it empowers them, to side with brutes and bullies, to revel in the silencing of a free press.”

    ““[Trump] knows what really motivates the conservative base and it’s this feeling of cultural alienation,” added co-panelist Sahil Kapur, who noted the rapid demographic changes in the United States, as the country becomes younger, browner, and liberal.

    “He’s painting a picture of a bunch of immigrants, criminals, and angry mobs coming to overwhelm, you know, ordinary Americans,” “I think it’s a signal that, you know, the economy’s not going to save the Republicans in this election.””

    If he makes it 4 years? Hell ‘Merika is so dumbed down this idiot is going to get 8 years for sure and probably more because he owns the Supremes and will most likely have a case that abolishes term limits. He’ll be POTUS until he’s dead and he’ll manipulate the constitution to allow him to appoint his family members into the position after his death. ‘Merica as we know it is dead, it will be Trump Nation until it actually folds in upon itself in about 20 years and becomes a territory of China.
