Fau... not sure how you can say Trump is only making money for he and his friends.
His net worth continues to drop while past presidents somehow came out with waaaaay more than they went into the job with.

From Snopes ...

As of 2017, the Clintons were estimated to have made $240 million since Bill Clinton left office in 2001, the Obamasí combined net worth was reckoned to be about $24 million, while the Trumpsí net worth was thought to have dropped to about $3.1 billion. Suffice it to say that the Clinton and Obama families have done very well for themselves since leaving the White House, but the Trumps have realized no similar windfall (and have possibly seen their overall wealth decline a bit).

The loony right's meltdown during the Obama administration was pretty funny.  "Obama is going to be the end of our democracy!"    But the loony left and their Trump Derangement Syndrome is even funnier.  Facts and the truth seem to play zero role in anyone's political rantings anymore.  Life in America today is like watching the real life version of the movie Idiocracy.   

PS, girl power.  Congrats on the world cup.  Soccer is still the most agonizingly, painful sport to watch, but congrats nonetheless.

I don't think I've ever agreed with a post more in my life.

I find it important to point out that this describes wealth accumulated by Clinton and Obama after they left office,  not while in office which was your point.

Next to golf, NASCAR, regular season NBA, and don't even get me started on the debatable sports like bowling.

I used to love watching a baseball game, take a nap, wake up around the 7th inning stretch and watch the rest...usually when the good parts happen anyways.  I tuned into the Rays/Yankees game over the weekend in the ninth inning, just in time to watch my Rays win it with a walkoff HR.  Pretty satisfying lol.

Soccer was boring right up until I understood it. It is quite the complicated game of chess. Barry Hulshoff from Ajax and his protege taught me quite a bit. The two of them used to coach at my club.  Once I learned the game and started watching what is happening and the events off the ball it became pretty intense. It's not my top sport to watch but I do enjoy it ... especially if i know any of the people involved albeit coaching or playing.
