A pittance against his crimes….
Read: Investigations. Four, five ongoing. It doesn’t amount to much. So far 45 has wiggled out of high crimes and misdemeanors – impeachment – twice. So, we see his crimes – from a certain perspective, utter disbelief – lies, boldfaced and tossed back seem to fall as accolades upon his (millions of) believers who have yet to abandon reality. Fox enables him. Follow the money; Fox makes millions pandering to his followers. So, it was for Hitler. It did not end well for Hitler.
Useless facts they point out on tours… The table top is from a single tree trunk and the edge was carved of that same trunk. The gilt on the porcelain ware is platinum. It maintains its shine better that way. The room was altered to accommodate the size of the rare wallpaper. The upholstery of the setee was cut from a woman’s fancy dress – the ultimate in re-purposing. George Washington slept here: how about he ate here? It’s dishes from his home. Thanks for the info. I also discovered that antique silver was polished every 20 years. More polish and the metal wears away so much that the silver weight is less. Once every 20 years… Umm, ok!
