Want the single, all-time best story about Donald Trump? Okay. Here it is.

About a month ago, Trump set up a website to raise money for his legal defenses here, there, and everywhere. This is a link to an archived view of the site, and here’s a story in The Failing New York Times about how and why the site was posted online.

Now here’s how the site looks right now. Patriot Legal Defense Fund for Donald Trump. And in case Trump’s toadies take down the hacked version, here’s what the top of it looks like right now:

If you scroll down, you can donate to the ACLU, the NAACP and a couple of other genuine organizations which aren’t shall we say, at the top of Trump’s list for outfits he would like to support.

Tonight, I watched the CBS National News and for the first time in I don’t know how many months, Trump’s name wasn’t mentioned once. Joe not only got a whole story about his Camp David meeting with the guys from South Korea and Japan, but he also got mentioned in another segment about going to Hawaii to see the damage from that awful fire.

I’ll take the short odds against any of you that if Trump doesn’t show up for the Wednesday night debate, that his poll numbers will drop below 50%. Frankly, he’s doing the mart thing by staying away, because if he does show up, his indictments will Be mentioned by every other candidate every time any of them open their mouths.

I mean, what else do they have to talk about? Do you really believe that any of those bozos have anything to say about anything other than Trump when we have an unemployment rate of 3%?

Last week some media outlet ran a story about how even though everyone has a job, things are still very tight and younger people, in particular, feel they don’t have what they really need. They interviewed this young couple who are in their early 30’s and although both are working, they are still having trouble making ends meet.

I can just imagine how much they are paying each month for a combined telephone, internet, TV, and movie connection. I’m paying over $300 a month…
