As the task of understanding just what this new "law" (not applicable to American citizens) means will take some time, The Musical Patriot respectfully asks citizens in the European Union to cease and desist from accessing this blog for the time being. I completely regret the need for this request. When things are clearer, I will have more to say. I look forward to welcoming Europeans back to this blog.

Trump Baffles Members of Parliament(s) With Fund-Raising Appeals

As Paul Ryan said in another related context, "You can't make this up, sometimes."  Even P. T  Barnum running for President couldn't have been this annoying.

However, perhaps this is exactly the kind of campaign we could expect from  America's first celebrity TV show Presidential candidate.  But as the MP's (Members of Parliament) are expressing, this is more than a little baffling.

And there remains the matter of U.S. law which bars foreign contributions to U.S. election campaigns, the last time I checked.

Interestingly, The New York Times was appealed to by one of the recipients.  The question to be asked about the entire Trump nightmare is not so much Why is Donald Trump the way he is?  Rather, it is how could someone like this have come this far in the first place?  The answer has everything to do with the U.S. media.*

The Baffling Trump Fund-Raising E-mails

*Many details can be given.   Exceptions to the overall venality of the media exist, though they are not exactly plentiful.  (See elsewhere on this blog for the good and bad nature of the media's Trump coverage.)
