Gotta hand it to him though; the guy with a gold toilet in his penthouse in NYC who doesn't give a rat's ass about poor hickville USA, figured out how to get them to send all of their money to him. Basically like a sleezy pastor on tv I guess.
Theres a really good book out right now about how Evangelicals want John Wayne, not Jesus.
So......where did ***ALL*** of that money go to?
(I will allow you to guess where).
Hamberders and diet coke?
There just giving money to Trump. He has no intention of wasting it on useless audits. He knows very well he lost fair and square. Hes the biggest con man ever and these Republican morons fall for it hook , line and sinker. Its been a scam to extract money from idiots from the very beginning. All these other Republican lawmakers who have jumped on the train are all in cahoots to bleed there contituents dry.
Honestly these Trump supporters who get scammed whenever they donate to him deserve it. He also wastes their money and makes it less effective than if they ever donated to a number of other “own the libs” causes. I hope they continue.
I wish I wasn’t raised to be an honest person. So many imbeciles will just throw money at you if you lie to them…
Right? All you need is a website advertising your new Penta-Hydrated, Chakra-aligned, Biblical 5G-proofed Vaccine Barrier Shield Cream (tm).
*"What $75 million?"*
Trump is trying to figure out how to not get charged with tax fraud on that..
Yeah, not surprised. It was always a grift
EVERYTHING with him is a grift.
It’s his slush fund! Everyone should know that, particularly his craven supporters who dropped their last $5 in Trump’s offering bowl.
Probably his legal defense slush fund….
What really pisses me off is that this is just allowed to happen in plain sight. Some people are actively trying to tear the country apart, most are apathetic and don’t give two shits.
This can apply to pretty much everything the past five years but I’m really fired up right now haha.
welcome to america, where money has more rights than you.
*insert surprised Pikachu*
Surprise! Surprise! The conman has continued the grift even while he's out of office. So, he told you he'd use your donations to fight to overturn the election and instead he's using it to pay off campaign debt and hold his Loserpolloza rallies.
Good then we can tap into them to pay for the voting machines they destroyed.
I wonder if they see how hes ripping them off yet? Hes been doing it for years.
These are the same people who go to mega church’s and tithe money to preachers. It’s the same graft and capitalism obviously pays for this “service”. It’s combining politics with entertainment, or religion with entertainment. So much entertainment, but such miserable results :(
hes going to keep fundraising and controlling the republican party until he decides if he wants to run again or not. I'm betting he wont, or really has no plans to run again, but will raise that money anyways. Why? because then he will figure out a clever way to use that money as his own piggy bank...
he learned in politics you can just ask for money, and they'll give it to you, no work involved! the boo strap party is basically subsidizing his entire life..
>hes going to keep fundraising and controlling the republican party until he decides if he wants to run
Should have stopped right there. He's going to milk the suckers for all he can until the point he has to run. Period. Whether its just ahead of the law or his own cult waking up and coming for his head, right now he's in fleecing mode.
aaand it’s gone
He’s going to use that for his legal fees.
You think trump will be paying legal fees?
That’s Trump’s debt money.
Well because it’s not meant for that, none of it is. It’s all meant for Trumps bank account.
I'm pretty sure overinflated salaries, bottomless expense accounts, mysterious contractors... all are using the fund.
He's got a few $billion worth of foreign loans to pay, ya know..
Go ahead.. keep paying his personal debts for him. Send those recurring monthly donations. Campaign contributions are no different than cleaning out your cup holders to pity the people holding cardboard signs on every streetcorner in the country.
How (and why) do you think Trump shammed his way into buying that chair at the top of the almighty pyramid? It's the gift that keeps on giving.. and he knows it!
No kidding. Why do you think Trump is doing his Dumbass Tour? It isn't to help anyone but himself to millions of dollars donated by suckers one and all.
Because it's a grift.
"That's MY money!" --DJT
between this and healthcare sharing ministries, i'm almost jealous at their hustle. conservatives get to enrich themselves by taking money from people who are uniquely gullible and supportive
Everyone knows that a Trump never uses his own money.
That is a debt for suckers and losers to pay.
Trump looks at his supporters and sees cows to be milked and pigs to be slaughtered.
Guess whose deep pockets are filling nicely 🤡
He already knows he can keep that money and the tax payers will have to foot the bill for these Republican lead, bullshit election audits. Arizonan here, not only did they use tax payer money for the audit, we now have to pay for a new set of voting machines because ours were compromised.
Who wants to pretend to be shocked? Fucking scam artist.
Spoiler: it's not going to fund election audits.
That money is earmarked for election related lodging, conference rooms and banquets at his properties. At "market rate", of course. Rack rate. He charges his PAC rack rate
Grifters gonna grift
He never used any of the money he borrowed to run his businesses to actually run his businesses. Why the fuck would anybody give him anything?
What a fucking parasite.
Lmao keep sinking money into his honey pot you gullible shits. Cant wait to watch Trump swallow up 50% of the Republican fundraising for the midterms for his own wealth.
I hate the man, but goddamn is he good at screwing over his own party
Back in the '70s, before a reich-wing mediasphere existed, any administration as blatantly corrupt as cheeto jesus' would have drummed out of power rather quickly.
Back in the '70s, basically everyone had to listen to the same news sources and you could not have anyone saying something like [“I’ve mainly listened to conservative news and I hadn’t heard anything negative about that report and President Trump has been exonerated.”] (https://www.vox.com/2019/5/30/18646048/republican-protect-trump-mueller-report-amash)
Even team (r) voters would have said "that's not right and he has to be removed" because they were not living in a bubble and were not brainwashed into cult-like behaviour. They could still admit that an elected team (r) member could be in the wrong and vote against him/her.
Now, naked, open corruption is simply dismissed as either "fake news!" or "democrats would be even worse!".
You mean it was all just a grift?
The guy with a 30+ year public record of being a grifter and con artist was just raising money to "audit elections" as a grift?
I refuse to believe it!
Everyone except Trump supporters saw this coming
Of course it didn’t. That corrupt, vile fat orange fuck.
So, is this, like everything else, just going to go unnoticed? It’s great he’s not in office anymore, but like, I find it hard to believe that democratic outreach to trump supporters on the grounds of “HE STOLE YOUR MONEY” wouldn’t land at all. Not to mention, shouldn’t this be illegal?
Like Carlin said: Nobody seems to notice, nobody seems to care. That's what they count on.
Of course not. It was always a grift to get money from the rubes.
It’s not for that it’s for his pocket
Charlatan's gonna... *^(Charlat???)*
Illegal to fundraise on false premises, isn't it?
He will continue to fundraise because it's the only way he stays relevant in Republican circles.
Owning and maintaining your own golf courses is expensive.
*Surprised Pikachu face*
Why would he spend money on something he knows is obvious bullshit... he is a con man
At what point can I contribute 10 bucks then sue the shit outa them for fraud.
This PAC should be charged to replace all the tampered voting machines in AZ, PA, and the like. There’s no reason it should fall on the state, and therefore the taxpayers.
Because it’s for his next election and if everyone doesn’t get on the fucking ball and stop him we are done here in the United States.
Fuck me sideways, can you imagine how insufferable he and his supporters will be if he ends up president again?
Of course not. That’s Donald’s money and he needs a lot of it right now. Loans are due; lawyers are needed; business is down.
What a surprise. He’s continuing to con his Klan.
Will they make him settle again for $25M so he still gets to pocket $50M of it?
Fleecing his cult followers ... nothing new
I guarantee the people who all gave that 75 million would be fine with the Trump PAC using it for his re-election in 2024.
People can’t honestly think that he will use it this way. His track record speaks for itself.
Shocking. Absolutely shocking. I am appalled. Who would have ever thought?
Actually I'm genuinely surprised. I thought someone would have taken all the money already and ran with it.
Uh oh, those cyber ninjas are going to be upset.
Do you mean to tell us they are just taking people's money and pocketing it? Trump would never do that! Say it isn't so!
Guess what? He’s not obligated to spend it on, well, anything in particular. He made sure of that.
You get right the fuck out of town! That’s crazy! You sound like an insane person!
There’s just simply no way this is true!
I wonder what do his donors/supporters think now?
They're Trump supporters/donors. Most:
A. wont see or hear about it, because they live in a information vaccuum
B. if they hear about it they'll come up with some spin about how "it's perfectly fine and Trump isn't a con artist and we definitely haven't been conned, no siree".
DUH! This whole lie is a grift so Trump can make money off his gullible, radical supporters. Got to hand it to him, it is a good profitable scam he has going on.
Idiots keep sending the con man money. Wow.
LoL oh hell no he's keeping that shit!
Scam, who knew?!
Wow this is completely surprising and a real out of left field development from our former presidents organization. I was just born yesterday and did not see this coming.
Trump supporters are the gift that keeps on giving .
They dont want fair elections, they want rigged elections that benefit them.
Which is why none of these audits have targeted Republican wins even tho that's where all the fraud is.
he spent it all on pee pee hookers.
Are they pee tapes or p tapes? I thought it was the latter. Probably evidence of the time he raped that 13 year old girl.
Probably needs the money for ivanka's tit job.
Today in I saw a campaign sign for a secretary of state nominee for Georgia, and the sign had text above the candidates name said it was endorsed by Trump. I am not listing the candidates name.
This man is a fucking legend lmao. He raised a cult so dumb and easy to rob. This has got to be the funniest shit Trump's ever done. It almost makes a lot of the other trash he did worth it.
Isnt this what Jill Stein did too?
Do you send your rent check directly to him or does it come out monthly via direct draft. He’s not your president.
