He says as it related to marijuana:
"I can't nullify congressional law. I can't ask the Justice Department to say, 'Ignore completely a federal law that's on the books.' What I can say is, 'Use your prosecutorial discretion and properly prioritize your resources to go after things that are really doing folks damage.'
He should have said this about poker.

And yet, he is willing to ask the Justice Department to completely ignore the Federal Law that states illegals who are in America must be deported. So for marijuana he won't get involved, but with a stroke of a pen he is ordering Eric Holder and Janet Napoletano NOT to enforce Federal Immigration law.
He has also used Executive orders to by pass Congress on two other issues.
You can't make this type of statement and turn around and do the shit he is doing and not be called on it. Simply put he doesn't care about poker, if he did, he would tell Holder to back off the online sites and/or put out an Executive Order to allow it.
Don't hold your breath folks.

RealKidPoker 2016-10-22 01:54:40 @Mrpokerpages @brianchastings 3500 suits https://t.co/HIfaDdOJ4I
RealKidPoker 2016-10-22 01:53:47 @Mrpokerpages @brianchastings he said "just about anyone" which is a fair statement
RealKidPoker 2016-10-22 01:53:14 @brianchastings @Mrpokerpages it's thousands. Over 3000 I believe but am not 100% the exact number
RealKidPoker 2016-10-22 01:52:02 @Mrpokerpages @brianchastings he can. With these things called "documented facts"
realcharder30 2016-10-22 01:52:00 @DanOBrienPoker what was that, 8 years ago?
driverseati 2016-10-22 01:51:14 @DanOBrienPoker and Bellagio used to be the room
RealKidPoker 2016-10-22 01:50:08 @Mrpokerpages we already had 8 years of Clintons and did just fine! Besides, you don't get to speak for minorities and what they deal with.
4viffer 2016-10-22 01:49:36 im starting to like this guy https://t.co/fx2Ut1SEEQ
RealKidPoker 2016-10-22 01:36:49 @Mrpokerpages I disagreed with McCain/Romney politically but respected them. Trumps rhetoric is SO damaging to the country esp minorities.
realcharder30 2016-10-22 01:36:38 @Jessechinni I guess you never got any stacks?
RealKidPoker 2016-10-22 01:35:21 @Jessechinni of course. As I said I'm not for higher rake and wasn't suggesting it's a good idea. Didn't explain it optimally.
DylanHortin 2016-10-22 01:32:01 Poker is a game of skill, ok? Just trust me https://t.co/d5vqaLuDj7
RealKidPoker 2016-10-22 01:30:52 @Jessechinni I apologize for not choosing my words more wisely which led to this confusion.
RealKidPoker 2016-10-22 01:29:09 @Mrpokerpages @brianchastings agree to pay X. Person does job. Then you say I'm not paying X, sue me. He has done this SO MANY TIMES!!!
RealKidPoker 2016-10-22 01:28:36 @Mrpokerpages @brianchastings corrupt doesn't always equal criminal. He has been sued far more than most any businessman. Corrupt:
RealKidPoker 2016-10-22 01:27:39 @Jessechinni it isn't better and it's not what I said. I talked about it on my last podcast. I am not PRO higher rake. Never have been.
RealKidPoker 2016-10-22 01:24:03 @Mrpokerpages @brianchastings and there is clear documented evidence that he has been a brutally corrupt businessman. That's not debatable.
RealKidPoker 2016-10-22 01:22:10 @Jessechinni haha this is tilting! I've never called for a rake increase! I didn't phrase my point correctly but it makes sense. I promise.
RealKidPoker 2016-10-22 01:18:16 @Mrpokerpages @brianchastings you'd chastise your daughter for behaving even remotely close to how that man behaves on the national stage.
cnew27 2016-10-22 01:16:20 @Joeingram1 I'm at hammond for 10 hours and get into a 5/10PLO to end the night. I'm oldest at table and some1 said GTO in first 5 seconds.
RealKidPoker 2016-10-22 01:14:17 @Mrpokerpages @brianchastings I judge what I can see and hear. I see him act horribly and say horrendous and dangerous things.
RealKidPoker 2016-10-22 01:11:54 @Mrpokerpages @brianchastings no it would not be ok. If evidence surfaced that they did, I would hope that's disqualifying and I vote Kaine.
RealKidPoker 2016-10-22 01:11:11 @Mrpokerpages @brianchastings I wouldn't want children modeling their behavior after a president who acts like a petulant child.
RealKidPoker 2016-10-22 01:10:09 @Mrpokerpages @brianchastings I'm not referring to his sexual assaults. I'm talking about the man himself and what he stands for.
RealKidPoker 2016-10-22 01:06:08 @Mrpokerpages @brianchastings I disagree strongly but that's a minor issue for me. The man himself is a repulsive conman.

gses75 2016-10-22 01:02:57 @abarber1 @ASAP17 his minions will shoot you with one of his assault riffles lol
gses75 2016-10-22 01:01:22 @ASAP17 @abarber1 exactly.
gses75 2016-10-22 01:00:39 @abarber1 @ASAP17 you can't. He's to big. Focus elsewhere
gses75 2016-10-22 00:59:37 @abarber1 @ASAP17 well that is undeniable. But being salty he parades as a Pro is just not worth ur time. He's just not worth it time at all
RealKidPoker 2016-10-22 00:58:43 @Mrpokerpages @brianchastings I want exactly zero people like that in my life. It's not political, it's an issue or morals
gses75 2016-10-22 00:57:59 @abarber1 @ASAP17 I wish his million of idiots would try to start playing Poker cuz of him but I haven't seen evidence of that.
RealKidPoker 2016-10-22 00:57:08 @Mrpokerpages @brianchastings depends if they actually support Trump or vote that way cause they hate Hillary. I can't tolerate the former.
