Hold On To Your Stimulus Check Hats, This Could Get Ugly!

Keep an eye on this for the next several days. The Washington Post just reported that, in a typically self aggrandizing move to stoke his voracious ego, Trump ordered that his name appear in the “signatory” line on the emergency stimulus checks that are scheduled to begin flowing out to millions of Americans next month.

By now we are all used to Trump’s particular affinity for bullshit grandstanding in order to stoke his own voracious ego at the expense of those working around him. It’s kind of like shoving the President of Montenegro out of the way for a front row slot for a world leader group photo op. But this time it’s just a little different.

The problem is that Trump isn’t entitled to sign the fucking checks. Federal funds, disbursed according to federal law, are to go out under the signature of the Treasury Secretary, not the brainless boneheaded President of the United States. Why do you think that The Munchkin Man, and his B-movie actress wife went flying off, elbow length gloves included, to have their pictures taken with the first rows of $100 bills as they came off of the presses with Munchkins name on them?

Mark my words, this is going to cause trouble, and lots of it. Just because I’m his brother doesn’t mean that I can sign my name to his checks to pay my monthly bills. There are going to be legal court challenges to these Treasury Department checks going out with any name other than the Treasury Secretary’s on them. And who is going to be getting these checks? That’s right, those poor enough that they don’t have to file tax returns, or those too poor to be able to have a checking account for their refunds to be direct deposited to.

We have seen this cheap, lame shit before. We saw it when His Lowness skipped out of a GOP primary debate because his delicate, sensitive little snowflake fee-fees were bruised, and held a veterans fundraiser instead. His fundraiser was oversubscribed by rich shitpokes who wanted ambassadorships under a Trump administration, and allowed Trump to accumulate months of interest on millions of dollars of funds, before the Washington Post’s David Fahrenthold finally shamed him into cutting some checks. Only this time, he’s fucking with the most vulnerable and the worst off among us. Rot in hell, motherfucker.

To know the future, look to the past.before the insanity of the 2020 election, relive the insanity of the 2016 GOP primary campaign, and the general election, to see how we got to where we are. Copies of President Evil, and the sequel, President Evil II, A Clodwork Orange are available as e-books on Amazon, at the links above. Catch up before the upcoming release of the third book in the trilogy, President Evil III: All The Presidents Fen

In his mind, it’s “branding.” He needs to drag his virtual nuts across them so everyone gets a noseful of Trump when they tear open the envelopes. As I understand it, his name will be on the memo line. We cannot overestimate what a filthy human being Trump truly is.

Just like a dog, pissing on every shrub he finds, spreading his scent and marking his territory.

I agree -I was going to say he is just like a dog pissing his mark on everything. No insult to real dogs implied or intended.
You beat me to it 🙂

If you can afford it, endorse the checks and send them to Uncle Joe’s campaign…..

Great idea. How can we let the orange menace know we did that?

Personally, I don’t have any real problem with him signing each and every stimulus check—manually. There should be one condition, though. Each and very check should be drawn on his personal account! Otherwise, I would expect to see Sec. Mnunchkin’s signature on them because that is the law.

YES – a check from the tRump Organization!

From what I understood this morning in a news story, his name isn’t permitted on the signatory line. It will go on the line to the left on all checks, you know, that line most of us forget to use to remind ourselves just what or who in the hell we wrote the check to when our bank statement comes in each month. But. Still this is grandstanding and unfortunately some (read that many) gullible folks will be grateful to the Donald, their patron, for caring enough to sign his name somewhere on their check. The only good thing is… Read more »

The line where we put the account number for the bill.

I never use that memo line for the account number for a bill; just use it to remind myself of stuff like “repairs to the washer” or ” fall chimney sweeping,” etc. And exactly, his signature on the memo line–what a waste that is.

I’ve done that sometimes – but when they want the account number on the check, that’s where it goes.

They put his sig on the memo line, because he legally can’t sign checks on the Treasury account.

It seems like this is going to be a Massive ClusterF. Checks are going to wrong accounts and banks will steal them. Another bank heist with his name on it. This should be his new campaign slogan, “In chaos you can steal.”
