Anyone with one half a brain has understood from the beginning that nearly everything Donald Trump says could be proven a lie.  Those who count the lies candidates make have said during the debates and on the campaign trail at least 71% of what comes out of the carnival barker Trump's mouth is a lie.

Now that he is the presumptive nominee of the Republican Party his statements, his life and the lies he tells will be microscopically analyzed by the Fourth Estate (hopefully) and regurgitated for the scrutiny of public review.  Running for the presidency in the general election we know is a lot different than running against fellow Republicans in a primary campaign.  Trump will be subjected to a layer-by-layer microscopic examination of his life.

It has begun as I write this since we now know the picture of the presidential race.   Today, the Washington Post revealed that Trump for a long time had called into talk radio programs with various descriptions of what was going on in his private life including his sexual prowess and indiscretions pretending it was not Trump who was calling but someone else revealing the dirt about him.  The tapes were, in fact, ALL Trump and -- don't be stupid, Trump supporters, -- tapes of one's voice can be subjected to the analysis of science which has already occurred.  The voice on the tapes is, in fact, Trump's voice because science has said it is.  He cannot deny it.

The financing scam of his primary campaign is just as it was revealed by savvy politicos months ago.  One merely had to read.  Trump said -- no he bragged -- that his primary presidential campaign was self-funded beholden to no superpac thus not compromising his "policy."   We now know for the general election this has changed and that he is accepting outside funding. In fact, for the primary Trump took out a $36 MILLION dollar loan which now that his campaign will be accepting outside funding from Pac money for the general election the $36 million he borrowed for the primaries can be paid off by the general election funding that he will receive.  That's legal except he did not want the electorate to know it.   To put it another way, Trump waited until the general election before raising funds from Pacs so that his debt in the form of a $36 million dollar loan for the primary election could be paid off in the general election courtesy of Pac money he will accept.  Could this be robbing Peter to pay Paul?  Who could have guessed? Cute very cute even Bernie Madoff would approve.

Then there are his taxes.  He refuses to release them as he says they are being audited.  He is counting on the low level intelligence of his know nothing supporters to accept what he says even though he does not have to wait for an audit to be completed to release them and, indeed, can release other years of his tax reports that are completed.  If he had nothing to hide and was telling the truth he would reveal his tax reports as it would add to the veracity of his campaign.  I aver there probably is something, even many, bombshells to hide. By his own admission he pays as little taxes as possible while you, the middle class, carry the national freight.  The abominations add up.  No doubt there will be infinitely more. 

The Republican elite knew of Trump's deceptions and worked hard to form a Never Trump third Party campaign but alas they were too late.  Apparently, those who work for and support Trump do not think any of the plethora of the lies he tells will matter.  Except in national and international policy they will matter and their consequences will be life threatening and even, potentially, nation ending. 

Donald Trump, there are few places where one can hide anymore.  If you are not on tape you will be on video.  You can run but you cannot hide.  I hope your legs, Mr. Trump, are bigger than your tiny hands because you will need them to run away from the truth as fast as you can. 

The butler, Senecal, with a _____, in the White House

For those of you who remember the game Clue you will recall it was a game the final goal of which was to determine who committed a murder, what they used to commit it and where the dastardly deed was perpetrated. The end looked something like this: The murder was committed by 1. Colonel Mustard 2. with a wrench 3. in the library. There were numerous names, tools and places from whom and from which to choose as one progressed to the final revelatory goal and the win.

The heinous, unspeakable Facebook rants of Anthony Senecal, Donald J. Trump's one time butler elevated by Trump to family historian, come complete with disgusting profanity, murderous desires and unspeakable sentiments calling for the assassination of President Obama and equally vile insults of the First Lady, Michelle Obama reminded me of the game, Clue.

The exception, of course, is Clue was a game and these are real life thirsts placed in writing by a longtime friend and employee of the Republican Party's presumptive nominee for President, Donald J. Trump. Senecal has been known to and employed by Trump for 30 years. I think that is important because Senecal stands in line with host of hateful rightwing nationalists, white supremists and extremist supporters of Trump including but surely not limited to David Duke, the once former grand wizard of the Knights of the Klan whom Trump claims to not know conveniently forgotten by him now. He did know him and said so at another time. There are many others with similar ugly hate-filled political sentiments that gleefully support the unqualified-for-the-presidency, Trump.

My mother used to say a person is judged by the company he keeps and Trump keeps a host of noxious advocates who make up the lowest common denominator and character of part of our national politics. The recessive hateful gene which exists in the national DNA sitting unexpressed and simmering, waiting for the right moment to violently strike or for the right candidate to support its ugly advocacy.

Trump can disavow knowledge of a variety of hate organizations and crackpots who support him but he CANNOT claim ignorance of a man who was employed by and known to him for 30 years. This time the answer to the Clue mystery could be the butler, with an unknown weapon in the White House.

one can be sure if a Democrat had employed someone for 30 years who wrote as Senecal did against a sitting Republican president and that candidate did not disavow and fire him he would never have seen the inside of the oval office and neither should Trump.
