I’ve thought from the beginning that Trmp et alia are performing a Mafia bust-out on a national scale. Nothing is beneath them. It’s all “Fck you, pay me,” as this clip from “Goodfellas” points out.
What’s a bust out?
Definition: A forced bankruptcy of a person or an organization, usually through theft, fraud or extortion.
Once you get into business with a mobster, they take over. They exploit the business, run it into the ground, and then torch it for the insurance.
This is exactly what Trmp et alia are doing. Everything is a profit center, an opportunity to grift some graft, and wet the beak. It is why I would not be at all surprised to find out, someday down the road, that Trmp et alia were getting kickbacks on PPE and anything else that can put a buck in their pockets.
