Mind-boggling graph of Trump's business ties

Kim Albrecht took on the herculean task of creating an interactive data visualization of Trump's business interests. Behold crony capitalism at its worst.

Based on the Trumpworld project initiated by Buzzfeed, it documents over 1,500 people and organizations that stand to benefit directly from a Trump administration. Kim says, "To explore the network further select one of the connections on the right of the graph or search below."

    Doh. I thought this post was going to be about his line of neckwear.

  2. I hate that Trump has turned me into someone who posts conspiracy theories on Facebook, but the part about the 19% sale of the Russian state oil company has really been bugging me. Please read and tell me I'm crazy. For reals, this is nuts and can't possibly be true, right?

    I'm not obese. See - my regular length tie is still too long. How could it be, were I large of girth? 'Twould appear shortened, and hang merely to the middle, betwixt mine belt and solar plexus.

    No, dear sir, I am not of that ilk. Mine tie doth beneath mine belt extend. 'Tis not a contemplated possibility for our cherished rounder brethren.

    Nor is mine hair of the thinning. Nor mine hands minimalised.

    Thou - thou art vain and desiring of constructing an apparition of mine person that doth mock and deride. Thou art cross-eyed and cross-brained, and uglier still.

    Mine beauty is apparent to all who see. For I am like golden sunlight in a clearing in a copse, by a brook, glittering and babbling, freshening and cleansing.

    Nay, knave, mine tie is not too long. Be gone.

    Before I set mine enforcers upon thee.

    Thou art fired.
