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.

Because it had been literal days since a journalist published an article about venturing into the hinterlands to meet the rubes and find out why they still love Donald Trump, the Washington Post served us up something special on Sunday! WaPo's Stephanie McCrummen went to Luverne, Alabama (population 2,700) -- more specifically to the First Baptist Church in Luverne, Alabama -- to find out how God's country faithful who hate the sin and love the sinner (Donald Trump) are holding up. Here is what she learned as she traveled through the pews of First Baptist and shook hands.

(Wonkette has changed all the names to protect the ignorant, even though WaPo used their real names LOLOL, WaPo is a dick.)

We begin our Sunday Rundown with former Trump foreign policy adviser and creepy inappropriate smiler Carter Page on CNN's "State of the Union" with Jake Tapper:

Honestly, Carter, stop smiling. It's seriously is not helping....

After the release of those 400+ pages of FISA application for the surveillance of Carter Page, Page did the idiotic thing -- as he has done before -- and went on TV again to attempt to put out a fire with a can of gasoline. Jake Tapper immediately got to the heart of the matter.
