Though the administration’s NDAs are likely unenforceable

Has this orange asshole ever succeeded at anything other than being a gigantic dick?

$15K/month must mean there’s a whole lot of dirt they want kept under the carpet.

Imagine if the previous administration had so much as bought lunch for a former staffer to ask for discretion about a parking ticket Secretary Clinton got?

“It is typical, and you know it, to sign an NDA in any place of work,” Conway said.

Um, no… it’s not typical. I’ve had to sign NDAs as part of contract negotiations or lawsuits but they were specific to the task at hand and not overly broad like what has been described here.

Funny thing, though – most of the people working for Hair Furor have law degrees or really good legal representation and therefore know & understand that these NDAs are not only unenforceable but null & void from the get-go.

The only way for Trump to succeed was to try to make it illegal for anyone who’s had contact with him to talk about it.

America has had so many warnings and red flags about this monstrous villain – including the time a movie villain was literally based on him – and still 40 million voters went for him. They really would have voted for Satan if he’d promised to keep every dirt-poor white person on a superior social footing compared to a black Nobel laureate. No matter that everybody knows he’s a liar and no one can be found who ever struck a bargain with him and was the better for it.

Their foul god belongs in a cell, and I wish they would all go with him.

Well said! I agree. The statement that these NDA’s were (only) done to placate Trump makes sense as the dummy had no idea they weren’t enforceable. Sounds like they fed him Pablum to keep the dolt happy!

He’s not even succeeding at that. Because of all this talk about NDAs, staffers who may have been frightened into silence are now well aware of the fact that they’re unenforceable. The more they talk about the NDAs, the more the press will talk about them and interview legal experts who confirm they’re unenforceable.

Look, the hayseeds that voted for him hated NYC and the ‘elites’ of the East Coast crowd so much they intentionally ignored all the warning signs the NY media posted for years about the orange clown!
Hell, most don’t even know of the NY Time’s or the Washington Post’s long history of accurate reporting. David Dennison knew this however!

When the guy who drew the damn things up in the first place tells you they’re unenforceable and it’s just to placate the man-baby in the Oval, well, you have to believe that source. :smile:

Unfortunately, we cannot be certain that this particular Supreme Court, in which the majority of justices see the Court as an extension of the Republican party, has the judicial temperament, moral compass or the will to defend the Constitution and the trampling of our freedoms and liberties against an unprecedented tyranny. All Preshitident Skanky-Manslut has to say is the word “national security” and they will bend over and kiss his saggy ass. Remember bribery, torture, Muslim ban, money Equals free speech are now legal now. They were all unthinkable and unconstitutional and inherently Unamerican not long ago.

Indeed would not bet against Dred Scott v. Sandford resulting in the same outcome if it were litigated in the current Court today.
