Trump Scammed Millions From His Not-Very-Bright Supporters

One of the more ironic aspects of Donald Trump’s improbable election win in 2016 was that many of his supporters declared they were voting for him because unlike career politicians, he actually told the truth. In reality, of course, he lied about everything all the time. Whether it was a big lie like the one about how Mexico was going to pay for his wall; a weird lie like the one about having been named Michigan’s “Man of the Year”; an insane lie like the one about windmills causing cancer; a sad, pathetic lie like the one about his inauguration crowd being bigger than Barack Obama’s; or a truly WTF lie like the one about the Boy Scouts of America calling to tell him his crazy speech in front of thousands of children was the best one they’d ever heard, the man spent his entire time in office lying through his caps, to the tune of 30,573 lies in four years. (Or 7,643 lies a year, or 21 lies a day.)…

The Save America PAC “is probably the most lucrative thing he’s had in terms of cash flow since the Plaza casino in Atlantic City,” Tim O’Brien, a Trump biographer, told the Post. “This is just as lucrative. He has recognized because of what happened after the election—he can make money as a candidate.”

Sad, but, true. In this case, the old aphorism still counts. You get what you paid for. Give some of your money to a proven crook…you may discover, later, he kept milking your bank account…like the dumbass cow who doesn’t notice they’ve been switched from the milking barn to the slaughterhouse..

    There’s a meme:
    “How do you milk sheep?”
    “Tell them the election was stolen, then ask for money.”

    “The county has, for whatever reason, also refused to produce the network routers. We want the routers, Sonny, Wendy, we got to get those routers, please. The routers. Come on, Kelly, we can get those routers. Those routers. You know what? We’re so beyond the routers, there’s so many fraudulent votes without the routers. But if you got those routers, what that will show, and they don’t want to give up the routers. They don’t want to give them. They are fighting like hell. Why are these commissioners fighting not to give the routers?”

  3. Evidence suggests says:

    “Donald Trump’s political organization raised nearly $82 million during the first half of this year and entered July with $102 million in cash reserves — an unprecedented war chest at this stage in the election cycle for a former president, according to figures released by his team Saturday night.
    The fundraising haul speaks to Trump’s continued ability to raise money from small-dollar donors online — as he trumpets baseless claims that election fraud led to his loss last year.
    Trump’s team is slated to file details of his committees’ fundraising and spending later Saturday night with the Federal Election Commission.” https://www.cnn.com/2021/07/31/politics/donald-trump-fundraising-first-half-2021/index.html
