Trump Sinks Deep Into Hypocrisy Quicksand. Again.

Trump Sinks Deep Into Hypocrisy Quicksand. Again. May 17, 2015

It was only a week or so ago that I noted that Donald Trump was criticizing Obama for his “failed leadership” because so many products in this country are made in China — not mentioning that his own clothing line is made in China. And now he’s done it again:

Potential 2016 Republican presidential candidate and attention-seeking businessman Donald Trump has donated at least $100,000 to the Clinton Foundation, despite his criticism of the foundation’s dealings.

During a New Hampshire campaign stop back in April, Trump railed against Hillary Clinton and the accusation that the former secretary of state traded political favors in favor for donations to the Clinton Foundation.

“If this were Richard Nixon or a Republican, if this were almost anybody, there would have been an investigation already,” he said. “This is criminal. What she did was terrible. She used her office to benefit herself and her family and everybody knows it.”

Hey, guess who donated between $100,000 and $250,000 to that “criminal” foundation that only exists to benefit Hillary Clinton? Donald J. Trump himself. Just like he supported her Senate campaign back in 2000 and 2006. Gee Donald, you weren’t trying to buy political favors or anything, were you? At this point, Trump isn’t the boy who cried wolf, he’s the wolf who cried wolf.
