El Cheapo Trumpo wants his fans to buy him an airplane

For a billionaire, Donald Trump sure is cheap. First, he got a donor to loan him a private plane on Saturday to fly him from New Orleans to Mar-a-Lago in Florida. And when the plane lost an engine mid-flight shortly after takeoff and was forced to return him to Louisiana, he finagled another private freebie flight from a different donor, according to The Washington Post.

After that inconvenient experience, which delayed his return home — not to his own private mansion, but to his freebie rooms at Mar-a-Lago — he’s got his eye on a shiny new “Trump Force One.” But, of course, not one to part with his stagnant — if not dwindling — monies — he’s now fundraising in hopes that his blind supporters will foot the bill.

From Huff Post:

Former President Donald Trump appears to be fundraising for a new plane after his private jet made an emergency landing over the weekend.

Trump’s Save America PAC sent an email on Wednesday titled “Update: Trump Force One” that discussed the construction of a new plane, several news outlets reported. …

“I have a very important update on my plane, but I need to trust that you won’t share it with anyone,” wrote Trump in the email, according to Newsweek. “My team is building a BRAND NEW Trump Force One.”

“The construction of this plane has been under wraps — not even the fake news media knows about it — and I can’t wait to unveil it for everyone to see,” it continued.

The email reportedly allowed recipients to “see” the new plane if they clicked an embedded link. The link actually directed to a donation page with the option to give between $5 and $2,000 to the Save America JFC PAC.

And the punchline is, Trump’s fans never do get to see a photo of his coveted “Trump Force One” as teased, according to Newsweek — the donation plea is as exciting as it gets.

Nothing new about gullible Americans giving their hard-earned dollars to creeps. From half-baked preachers to political phonies, Americans line up to fork it over. Been doing it for generations. Must be a special “stupid” gene that keeps folks at it.

    The fundraising email said he had “a very important update on his plane” and asked potential donors if they remember how the former president used to travel across the U.S. in his own “Trump Force One” before he became “the greatest President of all time.” https://thehill.com/homenews/administration/597673-trump-asking-supporters-to-fund-new-plane-after-emergency-landing
    Trump’s personal Boeing 757 was a staple during his 2016 presidential campaign.
    Last year, it was reported that his Boeing 757 was sitting unused at an Orange County, N.Y., airport unable to be flown. https://thehill.com/blogs/blog-briefing-room/544092-trumps-private-boeing-757-sitting-idle-in-disrepair-at-ny-airport
    The full-size passenger airliner, which bears Trump’s name across the side in large block letters, has fallen into disrepair. One engine is shrink-wrapped and the other is missing parts, according to CNN. https://www.cnn.com/2021/03/19/politics/trump-757-repairs-gold-plated-glory-days/index.html

      “Former President Trump on Monday said he is not using any campaign funding to construct a new plane.
      In a phone interview, Trump took issue with an article by The Hill over the weekend that cited a fundraising email his political action committee recently sent out.
      “The story was incorrect,” Trump told The Hill. “I already have a plane, the same one I used on the 2016 campaign.”
      Trump said his plane is being serviced in Louisiana and should be back in the air in 90 days.
      “It is owned by me and financed by me, with no debt,” Trump added, noting he had to fly on Air Force One when president for security reasons.
      Pressed on why the fundraising email that mentioned his plane asked for donations, Trump responded, “I don’t know. I never saw the email [before it went out].” https://thehill.com/homenews/campaign/598166-trump-i-am-not-using-campaign-funds-for-new-plane
