Auntie Maxine is getting her panties all in a twist over President Donald Trump's name being on stimulus checks sent to Americans.
The president has insisted that his name appear on the checks. On Tuesday, Rep. Maxine Waters suggested that people “may think it’s a BOGUS check from a BOGUS president!”
According to The Washington Post, “senior IRS officials,” reported on Tuesday that The Treasury Department “has ordered” Trump’s name be printed on stimulus checks the Internal Revenue Service is rushing to send to tens of millions of Americans, a process that could slow their delivery by a few days.”
“Whaaaat? Don’t dirty up the economic impact payments w/ Don the Con’s name on the checks that are being sent to American families to get thru the crisis,” Waters saltily tweeted. “People may think it’s a BOGUS check from a BOGUS president!”

The report says, “Trump had privately suggested to Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, who oversees the IRS, to allow the president to formally sign the checks.”
However, since “the president is not an authorized signer for legal disbursements by the U.S. Treasury,” the stimulus checks will reportedly “instead bear Trump’s name in the memo line, below a line that reads, ‘Economic Impact Payment.’”
WaPo noted that it is usually “standard practice for a civil servant to sign checks issued by the Treasury Department to ensure that government payments are nonpartisan.”
Despite people like Waters throwing around the "bogus" terms, other critics believe that a check with Trump's name would have Americans cashing them immediately.
Every New York contractor can tell you, immediately cash any check with Trump’s name on it.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi is as bitter of a woman as they come and nothing but a liar.
But the lie she told over the weekend was a doozy. It was probably the biggest lie she's told in months.
REVOLUTION! Bernie Staffers REVOLT After Sanders Does the Unthinkable!
Even though there is but one Democrat left to run against President Trump in the coming election, the Democratic party as a whole is still divided heavily and I don't believe that there is anything that they can do before the election to fix this.
As we are now only 7 months away from the general election, the Democrats have proved that they are still bitter from Hillary Clinton's loss in 2016. She even colluded with the DNC to rig the nomination and to prevent Bernie Sanders from getting the nomination.
