In Trump's version, donations are needed because of how the system works (to get stuff (done)). "Nobody knows the system like me, yadda, yadda".

If he changed the target of donations, it's because they had something he wanted.

...and if they changed their approach to him, it's because he was more useful as a foil than an ally.

He's no longer useful to the NY Democratic machinery, so they hounded him out of the state.

Is the NY lege going to impeach him? Are there mass resignations from his administration? This is pro forma political theater.


Hmm, i'm sure there is that...but also, there was not much voter support. So, maybe they were listening to their constituents (odd and intriguing bit), and posing at the same time (not so odd or intriguing).

I guess it's not what you know, but who.

If this guy had been a plumber he would now be just another registered sex offender, destined for a life of obscure manual labor and perhaps homelessness. His sentence was to a country club facility rather than to the usual American hellhole prison. Instead of a pariah he's a well-paid corporate consultant (don't call him a lobbyist!) and occasional cameo on film and television. His annual income is higher than his congressional salary.

In New York mercy, it seems, is reserved for prominent Democratic politicians.

And he's not an isolated case. Andrew Cuomo is still in office, likely to ride out the storm caused by his treatment of the women who worked for him. Where's Elliot Spitzer these days? No longer hosting a show on CNN, but he did manage a run for office after dodging charges for the exact crime he prosecuted others for as NY Attorney General. Did NYAG Eric Schneiderman go to prison for beating women? No, he's meditation teacher. Maybe he'll run for mayor as part of his rehabilitation process, much like Mr. Weiner.

cashing in?

Anthony Weiner, the former US Representative who resigned in 2011 after accidentally tweeting a sexually explicit images of himself, is considering new ways to capitalize on his numerous sex scandals.

Weiner, who also spent 18 months in federal prison for sexting and sending more pictures of himself to a then 15-year-old, suggested to New York Times columnist Ben Smith that he may hop onto the non-fungible token (NFT) craze that briefly and insufferably swept the worlds of art and cryptocurrency earlier this year.

In the interview, Weiner suggested that he may sell an NFT of his infamous tweet, or perhaps even of the search warrant for his laptop, which resulted in a reopened investigation against Hillary Clinton just before the 2016 election.

There is an old tale goes, that Herne the
Hunter
(sometime a keeper here in Windsor Forest)
Doth all the winter-time, at still midnight
Walk round about an oak, with great ragg'd horns;
And there he blasts the tree, and takes the cattle,
And makes milch-kine yield blood, and shakes a chain
In a most hideous and dreadful manner.
You have heard of such a spirit, and well you know
The superstitious idle-headed eld
Receiv'd, and did deliver to our age
This tale of Herne the Hunter for a truth.


— William Shakespeare, The Merry Wives of Windsor, Act 4, scene 4

But I am a blasted tree; the bolt has entered my soul; and I felt then that I should survive to exhibit what I shall soon cease to be — a miserable spectacle of wrecked humanity, pitiable to others and intolerable to myself.

Mary Shelley
Frankenstein
