Remember all through the campaign, Donald Trump would constantly and very slowly intone that Hillary Clinton and the Clinton Foundation were involved in "Pay ... To .. Play" schemes, as if he actually knew what that meant? Well, Josh Marshall has flagged a new thing, about how Ivanka Trump, First Lady of the United States because Melania's busy or something, has started her VERY OWN Clinton Foundation, except hers is based at the White House and it's griftier than anything Billz 'n' Hillz could ever have come up with!

It is from the shitty "Axios" website, and Marshall took screenshots of it, so we'll just steal his:

Wait, she is amassing money from Canadians, Germans and even MIDDLE EASTERNS? Didn't we have to spend the campaign constantly listening to attacks on the Clintons for taking money from corrupt and retrograde Middle Eastern regimes, money they used to foster equality and women's rights around the globe? Yes, we did! Maybe Ivanka is doing that too! Or maybe she is just grifting, now that she has been forced to "give up" her multi-million dollar fashion empire and live like a common pauper who works at the White House. As Josh Marshall asks, is she going to make money off of this? Will she be able to use her profits to buy all kinds of adorable swim trunks for Jared, who is also slumming it by being the guy who actually runs the country for his father-in-law?

And wow, she is even taking money from corporations? Really? And she's going to "pull it off" in a yooooooge way?

Another question: If this thing is actually trying to be a sort of "foundation" that "doesn't enrich the Trumps," do we even remember the Trumps' history with family foundations? They used their "charity money" to pay off Donald Trump's legal settlements and to buy beautiful portraits of Donald Trump and stuff. You know, just normal "least of these"-type stuff.

Is Ivanka going to use all the money she raises to buy beautiful portraits of her dad and herself, for female entrepreneurs around the world? Will it be this portrait?

Oh, one more question: Will corporations and Middle Eastern foreigns who contribute to Ivanka's White House Foundation For The Ladies get special treatment from the president for doing so, or do they have to do emoluments in other ways, by joining Mar-a-Lago or something?

This is just totally normal stuff and how all White Houses are supposed to work.

Anyway, we should probably investigate Hillary Clinton's emails some more.

Would you like to watch a joyful video featuring America's last competent and smart and sexxxy president, Barry Bamz-A-Lot McGee? Of course you would! You are probably already traveling for Thanksgiving, so STOP WATCHING THIS VIDEO WHILE YOU'RE DRIVING, IDIOT. But if you are not currently operating a motor vehicle, please proceed with this post!

Anyway, Barack Obama was saying words at his Obummer Foundation Summit, put on by the Nobummer Foundation, and he was talking about why it's so dang hard for America to actually get Great Again in these trying times. He didn't mention Donald Trump's name, because he only does that when he really wants to, but he sure did list some of the things that are holding us (read: Trump) back. You know, like racism.

And "mommy issues."
