He went to college? How much did that cost?
President Donald Trump’s niece, Mary Trump, accused Donald Trump of paying someone to take the SAT in his place to help him get into Penn.

Among the many accounts of her uncle in the book, Mary Trump wrote that Donald Trump paid a proxy to take the SAT for him to help him get into Penn, concerned that his low GPA would hinder his chances of getting accepted, according to CNN.

In the unlikely event Trump releases his own college transcripts would anybody like to forecast who was the better student?
Transcripts mean nothing if they are not from the same curriculum at the same school during the same years.

I think with "poor student" he meant "not rich", right?

Possible, but I would take that book with a pinch of salt.

California Dreamer: Cool post, bro (now deleted by another mod—see quote in post above).

Enjoy your vacation. Tone down the misogyny and trolling when you come back, or take a hike permanently. Thanks.
After Trump it will be interesting to see how Kamala Harris gets treated (and protected).

I mean what California Dreamer said was quite explicit but it wasn't necessarily untrue was it? There are stories/accusations that she did sleep her way to the top.

I heard the same about you. See? Easy, isn't it?

In any case, it's the misoginystic language that was the issue, plus the fact that it's a recurring theme with California Dreamer.

I think it's clear where California Dreamer's issues really lie.

I find it pathetic that this mentality continues: "Any woman who is successful must have slept her way to the top, but any man who is successful did it on his own merits".

If Trump can rape and molest his way to the top throughout his life, then I guess anything is fair game.

Full Circle is clearly fine with rape and sexual assault, because he certainly never mentions it where Trump is concerned.

Yeah....and in her case the detractors have to decide themselves whether she was chosen just because she's a woman and/or black to appease the "liberals" or because she slept her way to the top...

So many theories! So many feelings! Their heads must be spinning now...

Sleeping to the the top and getting offered a token position aren't mutually exclusive though.

Indeed, she could also be an opportunist and a W-word (see a certain post above), like all women who advance in their careers. And she could also be blackmailing J. Biden, because she knows things about him. Have you thought about this combination? There are probably much more on the internet/media, you can let your imagination fly.

This conversation is too funny. I'll leave it all to you.

And Kamala sleeping with someone, or Biden being overly "touchy", is worse than Trump raping and assaulting multiple women over the years and yet still becoming president? Any chance you can talk about that or is it basically "anything goes for the people whose politics you agree with", when it comes to your morality? Or your, erm... utter immorality, I mean.
