Trump Raised $75 Million For ‘Ballot Reviews’ But Spent It On Legal Fees And Travel: Report

Over the first six months of this year, failed, one-term, twice-impeached former President Donald Trump’s political action committee (PAC) raised some $75 million, ostensibly to pay for “ballot reviews” such as the one underway in Arizona.

But the money has been spent on everything but those election reviews, according to the Washington Post:

“The Save America leadership PAC — which has few limits on how it can spend its money — has paid for some of the former president’s travel, legal costs and staff, along with other expenses, according to the people, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to describe the group’s inner workings. The PAC has held onto much of its cash.

“Even as he assiduously tracks attempts by his allies to cast doubt on the integrity of last year’s election, Trump has been uninterested in personally bankrolling the efforts, relying on other entities and supporters to fund the endeavors, they said.”

It’s also believed that Trump will use the millions to back GOP candidates in the 2022 midterm elections and help start a war chest he can tap if he decides to run for a second term in 2024.

The former president collected the $75 million through online ads encouraging supporters to help him “secure” elections. One of those ads which ran on Facebook read:

“We need you to join the fight to SECURE OUR ELECTIONS!”

But Trump is willing to let others foot the bill for securing elections, leading Trump biographer Tim O’Brien to remark:

“That is probably the most lucrative thing he’s had in terms of cash flow since the Plaza casino in Atlantic City. This is just as lucrative. He has recognized because of what happened after the election — he can make money as a candidate.”

For Donald Trump, it’s all about the grift, and it always will be.

Crime Donald Trump Jared Kushner

Former Trump Attorney Says Jared Kushner Is Already Cooperating With Prosecutors

Now that indictments against the Trump Organization have already been unsealed and Chief Financial Officer Allen Weisselberg has been charged with numerous crimes, the question remains: Who will be the first in Donald Trump’s inner circle to flip on the failed, one-term former president and cooperate with prosecutors?

Weisselberg would seem to be the most likely candidate, but he’s said to be slavishly loyal to his boss, whom he has worked for more almost half a century.

Don Jr, Eric, Ivanka? Possibly, but they’re bound to their father by blood, and as the old saying goes, blood is thicker than water. Also, they depend on daddy for a living, because none of them have ever held a real job.

That leaves Jared Kushner, Trump’s former “secretary of everything,” who is reportedly in legal jeopardy, too, and also facing financial problems with his own real estate holdings. Would Jared become a cooperating witness for the prosecution?

Former Trump attorney Michael Cohen hinted Wednesday that the reason none of the legal filings have had Jared’s name attached to them is because he’s already in the fold with the office of Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance, Jr.:

Jared isn’t a Trump, and he must know that a long prison sentence would not exactly be a good thing for him. Fragile, doll-like men don’t tend to fare well behind bars.

Others agreed with Cohen:

Imagine the look on Ivanka’s face when she discovers her husband has just sold daddy down the river. Then again, Jared and Ivanka may bump into each other as they make a mad dash to Cy Vance’s office.

Social Media Isn’t Quite Sure What To Make Of Marjorie Taylor Greene’s ‘Hobbit’ Feet

Over the weekend, Reps. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) and Marjorie Taylor Greene got punk’d on a California beach when a man walked up and announced that he’d heard the Florida congressman was a pedophile:

But while the video of Gaetz getting made fun of went viral, there’s another debate taking place online regarding that beach scene, and it’s about what some are calling Greene’s “Hobbit” feet, according to the Daily Dot:

“This weekend … Greene, most famous for riling up Twitter users with her conspiratorial claims, found another subset of the internet to set aflame.

“Greene was traipsing around a beach in Southern California with Rep. Matt Gaetz … a state neither of them represents, as part of their America First tour.

“Barefoot.”

The photos set off debate on Twitter, where people were wondering what in the hell happened to Greene’s so-called feet:

But perhaps the best take on Tootsiegate was this:

Right-Wing GOP Congressman: ‘I Think We Should Indict Jill Biden’

Rep. Madison Cawthorn (R-NC) is easily one of the most odious and disgusting members of the current Congress, a right-wing ideologue who admitted during his campaign for office that visiting Adolf Hitler’s summer home had been on his “bucket list” for some time and “did not disappoint” once he finally saw it.

And now Cawthorn is suggesting that First Lady Jill Biden should be indicted.

Appearing on Newsmax, Cawthorn was asked by host Chris Salcedo:

“Shouldn’t the Republican Party hold Biden accountable for putting America in reverse when it comes to the China virus?”

That led Cawthorn to go on an extended rant:

“You know, I would love to have a congressional inquiry to understand exactly what Joe Biden’s reasoning is, but unfortunately I don’t think he could find his way to Congress. I’m talking from a very objective standpoint here. I think we should indict Jill Biden – I’m not saying indict in terms of criminal – but I’m saying that we should call her out for being so cruel to her husband. The man is clearly mentally unstable. He’s having some form of degradation of his mind.

“Right now, his mind simply cannot handle it.”

The congressman also suggested that Joe Biden isn’t actually running the country:

“You know as much as I’d love to question Joe Biden. I really want to question whoever is really calling the shots right now, because I don’t think Congress or the American people truly know who’s behind the scenes pulling the strings of Joe Biden.”

Of course, this is the very same Madison Cawthorn who lavishly praised failed, one-term former President Donald Trump at the 2020 Republican National Convention, so his judgement is clearly flawed.

Joe Biden is the President of the United States. And he’s a hell of a lot more qualified and competent than Madison Cawthorn will ever be.

Donald Trump GOP Melania Trump WTF?!

Melania Trump Said She Agreed With Her Husband: ‘Shameful’ John McCain Wasn’t A War Hero

If perhaps you were uncertain whether or not former First Lady Melania Trump was as irredeemable and evil as her husband, a new article from Business Insider suggests that Melania is indeed a piece of crap.

According to the “oral history” of how Trump took over the GOP, former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski reveals that Mrs. Trump did indeed trash Sen. McCain:

“Former first lady Melania Trump shared her husband’s low opinion of the late Republican Sen. John McCain’s military record.

“She agreed with then-candidate Donald Trump when he said during a 2016 GOP primary event in Iowa that the Arizona senator was ‘not a war hero,” according to Trump’s former campaign manager Cory Lewandowski.

“Lewandowski, who spoke to Insider as part of an oral history project on Trump’s takeover of the GOP, said he and Trump met up with Melania Trump in New Jersey as political pundits and conservative talk-show hosts were saying Trump had to apologize. He thought the comment would end Trump’s campaign.

“As we walked in the door, Mrs. Trump was waiting for us,” Lewandowski said. She said: ‘You’re right. John McCain isn’t a war hero. What he has done for the veterans has been shameful.'”

What exactly did Melania or her husband ever do for veterans? Donald said he was going to raise money for vets instead of debating in 2016 (because he was afraid of then-Fox host Megyn Kelly, who was one of the moderators) but he had to be shamed into finally releasing the funds he raised.

Have any of the Trumps served in uniform? No. As a matter of fact, Donald Trump’s grandfather was kicked out of Germany because he wouldn’t do his mandatory military service, CNN reported a few years ago:

“Donald Trump’s grandfather was kicked out of his native Germany for failing to do his mandatory military service there, a historian has claimed.

“A local council letter from 1905 informed Friedrich Trump – who had become a United States citizen – that he would not be granted his German citizenship back and that he had eight weeks to leave the country or be deported, German historian Roland Paul told CNN Tuesday.”

Melania Trump is indeed as disgusting as her husband. We’ve always suspected it, and now we know it to be true.
