In Despicable Move, Trump Campaign Asks For $5 Donations To Support Mike Pence After NFL Stunt

If there was any doubt in your mind that Donald Trump engineered Mike Pence’s publicity stunt on Sunday when the Vice President walked out of a Colts-49ers game after players knelt in protest during the national anthem, you can put those doubts to rest.

Have a look at this:


To be clear, this is the worst kind of despicable. 


This is the President of the United States, using taxpayer dollars to send the Vice President to an NFL football game knowing full well that there was a good chance some of the players would kneel during the anthem and then using the whole thing as an excuse to squeeze money out of the very same taxpayers that paid for Pence to go to the game in the first place.

Here’s the actual e-mail from someone’s inbox:


And then here’s Pence pushing the envelope (figuratively and literally in this case) just 17 minutes ago as of this writing:

Just so it’s not lost on you, 25% of this money goes to the RNC, which is of course pushing an agenda that in no way benefits the working class people who would donate in small sums. We detailed this over the weekend.

Further, some of this money is being diverted to pay Trump’s lawyer fees incurred as part of the ongoing Russia probe. That would be the same Russia probe that’s trying to determine the extent to which this very same campaign colluded with a hostile foreign power to con these very same voters into casting their ballot for Trump in the first place.

This is quite simply beyond the pale.

On the bright side, you get a free bumper sticker with your donation.

Nothing further.

    1. Misappropriation of funds? Squandering taxpayer’s funds? How about just General Principle?

      $25% or $1.75 will go to RNC, remainder $3.75 to “support Pence” is not clearly defined. Since it was made public not long ago he does not have deep pockets to pay expensive lawyers so most likely that is why he needs the money. However, it is also mentioned that some of this money is being diverted to pay Trump’s lawyer fees, who certainly has all he needs for legal fees. I have no doubts before all this crap is over there will pages of crimes to send his holy ass to jail – with luck these two can be cellmates. btw, offending me has a higher price to pay!

      Do we still get a bumper sticker?

  1. Yep, another made up distraction plus it cost you 5 bucks if you are stupid enough to send it into these shysters. The shinny object in my left hand keeps the dimwits from seeing what the right hand is doing. The health of literally the whole planet is being ruined by these people and they are not going to stop until we stop them. People I don’t care what party or group you support conservative, liberal, progressive, fu*king dogcatcher it doesn’t matter help us rid the world of this sh*thole president and his billionaire assh*le cabinet and administration. Support ANYBODY that is against this blight on our country. They all should be in jail.

  2. Interesting stuff, but is it fundamentally different than DNC fundraising? I doubt the sponsors of this effort really count on raising significant net $$’s. The objective is more than likely to point to widespread support to boost political/popularity optics. it will be interesting to see how much they do raise from this if the numbers ever do become available.

    1. The difference is that this fundraising targets real ordinary folks whereas the opponent fundraising targeted (successfully) top Wall Street banksters, big unions, the global elite and hostile foreign royalty like Saudi. Reference the Clinton Foundation which was the biggest, filthiest money laundering operation ever. Why isn’t that corrupt old bitch and her rapist husband in prison for life?
