CORRUPT AF: New Website Will Allow You To Track Trump White House Corruption In Real Time

Donald Trump Is Corrupt As Fuck!

Do you struggle to remember the almost countless examples of Donald Trump’s corruption? Are you afraid that your most recent argument is now outdated as a new crooked cabinet member is designated or a fresh conflict of interest arises? Unsure about exactly how many of your tax dollars are being migrated to special interests? Now you’re in luck, bigly! Matt Ortega — who ran Hillary Clinton’s digital communications department — has launched a website that lets you track exactly how corrupt the Trump Administration is. The beauty of it all? It keeps track in real time.

 

The website — corrupt.af — is a “tremendous” play on text slang and sarcasm. As Politico notes:

Officially, the “af” in the site’s web address is the country code for Afghanistan, which administers the top-level domain along with some help from the United Nations.

Unofficially, in the abbreviated argot of texting and online chatting, “af” stands for “as fuck.”

The main header in the body of the site lets viewers know how long it’s been since Trump’s last act of corruption. His “The Apprentice” salary remains the most recent shining example. Scroll all the way to the bottom and you’ll find how many conflicts of interest the site is presently aware of. We’re clearly on the precipice of the shadiest administration in modern history. Ortega plans to make sure this historic moment is archived. And he’s documenting every aspect:

“A lot of these examples are obvious conflicts, like having Ivanka Trump sit in on Trump’s meeting with Japanese Prime Minister Abe,” Ortega said. “But they also include examples that show his policy on specific issues or, say, countries [where his position] could be swayed because of financial interest either in his business or his personal finances.”

The sheer magnitude of sleaze was the inspiration, according to Ortega:

“There were so many conflict-of-interest stories flying around, it was kind of hard to keep track of everything,” he said. “That’s my fear. It will all go down a memory hole and people will forget.”

I know my mouth spews off arguments against the President-Elect before my brain can process the overwhelming facts. That’s why the upside of this website will make your head spin! The next time you hear a Trump-backer mention “Crooked Hillary”, you have your ammunition in a clear, concise manner. Bookmark this on your phone’s home screen. Set alarms to check it daily. Because it’s our civic duty to honor the words of Thomas Jefferson:

Whenever the people are well informed, they can be trusted with their own government; that whenever things get so far wrong as to attract their notice, they may be relied on to set them to rights.

 

Now there are no excuses.
