Craven filth.

I managed to live in Las Vegas without spending a dime in any of his businesses for more than a decade, which I'm not not proud of.

Damn. Last I time I went I stayed at the Palazzo at Venetian. I didn’t realize he was that much of a shitbag or else I would’ve stayed somewhere else.
My avatar corresponds on my place in the Swamp posting list with the all-time Home Run list. Number 45 is Andre "The Hawk" Dawson with 438.

Hey now. His wife earned the Presidential Medal of Freedom!
And his one problem is he didn’t go to Russia that night because he had extracurricular activities, and they froze to death.

In one sense, it's a public company with 50,000 employees and I had/have friends who work there so an actually effective boycott would hurt them as well, so there's more than one side to it. I did what I thought was best, but it's a little different than boycotting the Trump hotels, for example.

That said, it's not many people who can actually say they were instrumental in making two democratic countries less democratic, worse places to live while they were alive, so Adelson has that going for him.
