The Trump campaign provides daily proof of the truth behind the old saying, “a fool and his money are soon parted.” The latest case in point: Trump Straws, for which his loyal cult (the GOP’s not really a conventional political party, anymore) have reportedly coughed up nearly $900,000 so that they, like Dear Leader, can fight the liberal scourge of paper straws. (Or whatever. Hey … it’s their money).

But that’s only the tip of Trump’s self-dealing and pursuit of profit, which almost always comes at taxpayer expense.
