Lastly, if you work hard and "honestly" there is nothing wrong with making money....

You think "honest" is the best word to describe Sean Spicer and Kellyanne Conway? Their job is simply to disseminate truth?

21% of Americans will earn over $100,000 a year within their lifetime.

So how about the readers and posters of this thread? More than 21%?...Or less?... Cast your vote below.  :blank:

Most Americans aren't millionaires.

Irrelevant, the thread is about influential people in government.

It takes a lot of ambition, hard work, intelligence, and sometimes even luck.

Then you just argued for why everyone in the USG should have millions— otherwise you want unambitious, lazy, dumb, unlucky leading the country. But in reality it only takes basic math skills and a small amount of discipline.

I thought Kellyanne Conway's / Sean Spicer's role was spin for Trump / be an apologist for him, not run the government via actual policy creation...

...but with this new administration, who knows... Lines have been blurred.

I was responding to this:

Are you going to tell us how many millions you have, old man Ptolemy?

Do you mean to get into a position of power in the U.S. federal government?.... or to become a millionaire?

I'm guessing you mean to become a millionaire, but both are not easy to achieve. Both will remain elusive for most of the population.

In other words, you're dodging the question. Taking a page out of the ol' Sean Spicer playbook I see.

Here is a link to the house that the Obamas have leased in D.C.

https://www.vox.com/culture/2017/3/2/14779892/barack-michelle-obama-65-million-book-deal-penguin-random-house

Yeah, the Obamas are super rich. Book publishers paid them $65 million in hopes of making a profit (which will most likely happen). That's capitalism. If you have something insightful and interesting to say, the public will pay you money. If you're a good actor (George Clooney) they will buy tickets to your movies. Nothing wrong with that.

But getting paid (loads of dough) to spin or propagate falsehoods doesn't sit well with me.

Ah yes, the good old elitist creed: do as I say and not as I do.

If you talk “elitist” you can make all the money you want, and that is just the American way.  However, if you don’t talk elitist and make money, then you are an un-American, money hungry, blood thirsty, deplorable person who would steal the social security check from a 92 year old woman…..

What do you mean by elite? The intellectual elite? The cream of the crop in terms of education, intelligence, and dedication towards helping others? That's who should be running the country. Not demagogues. Not con men. Not ignoramuses. Not liars.

Obama donated an enormous amount of money to charities. (So did the Clintons.) Trump did not. He only pretended to then made some small token donations (often with other people's money) when called out on false claims. This is almost certainly the reason he won't release his tax returns.

Obama worked hard to raise taxes on the upper 1% (himself). Trump worked hard to lower taxes on the upper 1% (himself)...which is not a smart or ethical thing to do considering the U.S. has so much debt.

People working for Trump are getting fat stacks of cash. So are incidental Trump supporters fake news writers (via ad revenue from their clickbait websites).

... because the mainstream media has been so biased that the overwhelming majority of Americans have seen through them.
That's why they're turning to alternative sources for their news.

You see most people are able to distinguish BS on some level.

Except for you it appears?

Gallup Poll: Trust Level of Mainstream Media Falls to 32%


America’s trust and confidence in mainstream media stood at its highest level back in 1976 at 72%. Of course, that was due to the investigative journalism regarding Vietnam, and naturally Woodward and Berstein, with the Watergate scandal. Following that period, the media began to attack the right with Reagan. By the late 1990s, the Americans’ trust in the media fell steadily into the low to mid 50% level.

Following 2005, the trust in mainstream media dropped into the mid 40% range. It has consistently been below a majority level ever since the 2007 economic decline. However, after the 2016 election and the extreme bias for Hillary, where virtually 99% of mainstream media deliberately tried to manipulate the people to vote for Hillary, the trust factor has collapsed to 32%.

You're already in the bottom 32% of the population.

MSM is Fox News. MSM is NPR. MSM is a lot of (different) things which can be defined a lot of different ways.

It’s hard to think of a worse example of the “swamp” that needs draining than a president hiring his unqualified, inexperienced 30-something daughter and son-in-law with a myriad of conflicts (some involving foreign countries) who refuse to fully divest while given broad, undefined duties ranging over the entire government.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/right-turn/wp/2017/05/02/ivanka-trump-and-jared-kushner-arent-helping-to-drain-the-swamp

Taking a step back, the entire situation is unsightly and inappropriate, creating the impression that the United States is ruled by a royal-ish family for whom the normal rules and norms do not apply. Congress could, of course, hold hearings and legislate on the matter, but until Republicans lose control of committees in the House and/or Senate, expect them to keep on ignoring the Trumps’ shenanigans.

It's only nepotism if they are given a department to run. Simply having a relative as an adviser does not strike me as unethical. In fact, it is probably a good thing.

If Ivanka or Kushner were in charge of a federal agency or some other position it would be. But as a simple adviser, that's fine.
