What is Trump Hiding?

From Kevin D. Williamson:

Donald Trump: “I’m a wildly successful businessman.”
Skeptics: “Let’s see your tax returns.”
Donald Trump: “. . .”

Donald Trump: “I was a great student at Penn.”
Skeptics: “Let’s see your transcripts.”
Donald Trump: “. . .”

Donald Trump: “I didn’t tell the Times I’d go soft on immigration.”
Skeptics: “Let’s hear the tape.”
Donald Trump: “. . .”


I’m still waiting to see what grade Barack Obama made in Econ 101, but he has kept his transcripts hidden from public view. Donald Trump is doing the same thing, presumably for the same reason.


Goodbye, my little boy

So this is where we part, My Friend,
And you’ll run on, around the bend,
Gone from sight, but not from mind,
New pleasures there you’ll surely find.

I will go on, I’ll find the strength,
Life measures quality, not its length.
One long embrace before you leave,
Share one last look, before I grieve.

There are others, that much is true,
But they be they, and they aren’t you.
And I, fair, impartial, or so I thought,
Will remember well all you’ve taught.

Your place I’ll hold, you will be missed,
The fur I stroked, the nose I kissed.
And as you journey to your final rest,
Take with you this…I loved you best.

— Jim Willis
