Trumpi [Tweets ?] To Followers:  “F@#$ You” (February 6, 2017)

J          “The corporate owners of the government do not really want us to provide for our retirement or our future.  They just concoct more rackets to exploit and plunder the people.”

K          “Welcome to the Great American Kleptocracy.”

. . .

K          “The Department of Labor was scheduled to implement a policy known as the ‘Fiduciary Rule’ that requires a broker to act in the client’s best interest rather than in the broker’s financial interest.  And Trumpi killed it.”

J          “I describe the Rule as a ‘no brainer’ policy.  An attorney is obligated to act in the client’s best interest; a doctor is obligated to act in the patient’s best interest; a broker is obligated to act in the client’s best interest.  The word ‘client’ itself acknowledges the existence of a fiduciary duty.”

. . .

K          “There is very little trust in America today for the compelling and unimpeachable reason that there is no reason to trust in America.  The Rule would have meant that a person could trust his or her broker.  That would help the little man and the little woman.  Trumpi does not give a hoot for the little person.” 

J          “Trumpi ran as the candidate of the Middle Finger Party and never revealed to anyone that he really intended to give the middle finger to his voters.”

K          “Trumpi pulled off a legal and financial coup d’état without firing a shot and now is taking all kinds of shots at the little person.”

. . .

J          “We are watching a house on fire with no fire fighters and no bucket brigade in attendance.  A house on fire this divided cannot stand.”

K          “And Trumpi is giving sociopaths a bad name.”

J          “The biggest uncertainty of our time is determining what will transpire when a critical mass of Trumpi voters realize they have been deceived and duped.”

K          “The way Trumpi is dissing and dismissing the ‘deplorables’ is deplorable.”
