10 Questions Donald Trump Needs to Answer

Which questions have you thought of?

Question 1. How can you call yourself a “philanthropist” when you haven’t donate money to your own foundation since 2008

You’ve given biggest far less to your foundation than Vince McMahon’s World Wrestling Entertainment, which gave the Trump Foundation $5 million. This looks far more like a traditional tax shelter than it does a philanthropic organization.

Question 2. Why have you been involved in so many lawsuits–is that your idea of leadership?

In addition to the lawsuit brought against Trump University and the investigation into your foundation, you’ve been involved in over 4000 lawsuits, according to research by USA Today.

Question 3. What, exactly, are your ties to the mafia?
Apparently, it’s a well-documented history–but don’t take our word for it. Here’s what Politifact has to say: “[requiring mob-controlled concrete in the 1980s]…was the fact of life, that was the way it was,” according to James B. Jacobs, a mafia expert who was part of a state task force on organized crime told PolitiFact. Trump’s business dealings with the mob or mob-related characters are widely documented.

Question 4. Why has the president of the United States called you out for being unfit?

Could it be because you have a history of not paying contractors because you simply didn’t want to–how is that being a good businessman? It’s not, is it.

Question 5. Why did you cheat workers when you built Trump Towers?

A federal judge found that you cheated Polish workers who worked for extremely low wages, worked long hours, lived on junk food and sometimes slept at the work site. This was apparently all done to the deadline to build Trump Tower. According to the New York Times in 1991:
“The Polish workers were obvious not only in numbers but also in appearance,” the judge wrote in his decision. “In contrast to the union workers, the nonunion Polish workers were distinguished by the fact that most of them did not wear hard hats.” Mr. Macari would appear on the site with cash to pay the Polish workers, the judge’s decision said, and at times the Polish workers staged “very visible work stoppages because they were not being paid their wages,” which at $4 or $5 an hour were at least less than half what union workers were paid.

Question 6. Are you a misogynist?

You have a well documented history of either disrespecting women (journalists, comics, your ex wife). On one occasion you told a journalist that the only reason she had the job was because of her looks. On still another occasion during a legal proceeding, one of the women lawyers need to excuse herself to pump breast milk–something you called disgusting. Do strong women scare you or disgust you?

Question 7. Do you understand the Constitution’s First Amendment?

According to Politico, the answer is probably not:
According Shortly after the November 2015 terrorist attacks in Paris, Trump told Fox News that the U.S. government should close mosques where “some bad things are happening…Nobody wants to say this and nobody wants to shut down religious institutions or anything, but you know, you understand it. A lot of people understand it. We’re going to have no choice. Some really bad things are happening.” Trump has also suggested that as president, he would enact new restrictions on the First Amendment’s guaranteed freedom of the press. “We’re going to open up those libel laws,” Trump said in February. “So when The New York Times writes a hit piece which is a total disgrace … we can sue them and win money instead of having no chance of winning because they’re totally protected.

Question 8. Why do you think the American Nazi Party and ex-Grand Wizard of the KKK support you?

Is it because you have shown racist attitudes toward black people (the DOJ sued you twice for racist rental practices, after all). According to the Washington Post:
Trump employees had secretly marked the applications of minorities with codes, such as “No. 9” and “C” for “colored,” according to government interview accounts filed in federal court. The employees allegedly directed blacks and Puerto Ricans away from buildings with mostly white tenants, and steered them toward properties that had many minorities, the government filings alleged.In October 1973, the Justice Department filed a civil rights case that accused the Trump firm, whose complexes contained 14,000 apartments, of violating the Fair Housing Act of 1968.
Perhaps it’s because you’ve suggested that immigrants are murderers and rapists. Or perhaps it’s because you’ve suggested that you don’t want black people counting your money; that you want only Jewish people counting your money:
“Black guys counting my money! I hate it. The only kind of people I want counting my money are short guys that wear yarmulkes every day.”

Question 9. Why are you so enamored of authoritarians?

Not Teddy Roosevelt. Not Eisenhower. Not Kennedy, Not even Reagan. You’re known for admiring Vladimir Putin, a well-known authoritarian strongman who may well have had his enemies assassinated. And not just Putin–you lavish what appears to be admiration on Kim Jung Un, the authoritarian leader of North Korea.

Question 10. Why do you constantly lie?

According to Politifact, only 4% of your statements they considered have been rated as “true.” Four. Percent. What is it about the truth that’s so elusive?

Perhaps it’s the likelihood, according to some experts, that you suffer from classic Narcissistic Personality Disorder?
