Trump Ongoing Investigations

Follow the money!

Trump may be doing "victory laps" for now, but his numerous investigations are not over. For instance, the Southern District of NY currently has ongoing investigations into the Trump family and their business practices. State level crimes can not be pardeoned by the Federal Government, so this could be very promblematic for the office of the President down the line. There are still so many unanswered questions about "Trump University" (which Trump had to pay a 25 MILLION dollar settlement), his charity shifting funds to for porfit ventures , and others. It is back to reality, now.

The Mueller Report

Womp Womp.

While we, and presumably Donald Trump himself, can only speculate what is in the Muller report, his Attorney General made a rash decision to release HIS thoughts on the report, but not the report itself. Nearly half of American polled indicated they think Trump obstructed the Russian probe. While we wait for the full report to be released, to fully exonerate the President, it is important to keep in mind that Mueller and his team are not legally allowed to speak about the matter. That makes the conversation VERY ONE SIDED, dont you think? The full report should be released so everyone can make up their own minds. How about releasing those tax returns as well?

Healthcare 2020

Who knew healthcare could be so complicated?

The Republicans and Donald Trump want to get rid of the Affordable Care Act, and replace it with something new. It is possible they do not want to replace it at all, and to let those who are poor or elderly die in the streets. Trump tweeted "The Republican Party will become “The Party of Healthcare!”", while hoping to gut protections for  tens of millions of Americans. In February, a Kaiser Family Foundation poll found 50% approval for the ACA, it has been more popular since OBama has left office.

Edible Playdough

If there's one thing that most of the children in my life love, it's to play with tactile stuff you can eat! My kiddo built parks out of broccoli and carrots when as a child was little and to this day my teen will shape anything out of playdough with my two-year-old niece. So I thought it would be really fun to try some chocolate playdough for their dessert tomorrow when my niece comes over for the day!
