Today, the Washington Post published receipts showing that Trump's charitable organization isn't exactly, well, charitable. Turns out Trump used nearly a quarter-million dollars of his charity's money to do things like settle lawsuits, advertise hotels, snag football helmets signed by fake baseball players, and buy two (two!) giant portraits of himself to the tune of $30,000.

He is a bad man who is equally inept at negotiating fair prices and commissioning tasteful art. There may be no one more fearful of a Trump administration than the White House interior decorator.
