How many members of Congress, who have a constitutional duty to conduct meaningful oversight of the executive, giddily participate in events at the Trump International Hotel, a taxpayer owned landmark where Trump is his own landlord and the emoluments flow like the $35 martinis?

How long do you think a politician like this spends wrestling with his conscience before funneling $3,133.19 to a President whose endorsement he wants?
