Remember this Trump tweet from last fall?
That was waaaaaaay back when Trump was going to self-fund his campaign. Trump was rich, Trump was successful, Trump wasn't going to "sell out to the special interests". Because "nobody controls Trump".
So does that make this story a thing? Because it really, really should:
Billionaire Republican donor Sheldon Adelson is reportedly willing to give Donald Trump as much as $100 million for his presidential campaign -- a purported record-setting amount for the wealthy casino magnate.
Adelson pledged the amount to Trump, the presumptive "GOP" presidential nominee, during a meeting last week in New York, two GOP sources told the New York Times, which first reported the story. [emphasis added]
Sheldon Adelson is looking to give big dollars to Trump because he feels he can mold him into his perfect little puppet. Right, Trumplicans?
Or maybe the molding is flowing in the opposite direction from the mountains of casino cash:
As significant, Mr. Adelson, a billionaire based in Las Vegas, has decided that he will significantly scale back his giving to congressional Republicans and direct most of his contributions to groups dedicated to Trump’s campaign. The two Republicans familiar with Mr. Adelson’s plans spoke anonymously because they were not authorized to discuss the matter publicly. [emphasis added]
So. Guarantee that no matter who wins in November, the Democrats will effectively retain the White House, and maximize the chances of the Dems retaking Congress as well, all in one fell swoop.
Caleb Howe sums it up:
[Trump]’s drawing this huge money to himself and away from down-ticket races, potentially losing Congress and the other selling point: that laughable notion that he would be more supportive of Republican legislation than Hillary would. So he’s undermining both the “he’s better than Hillary” settlers AND the rabid fan base. Neato. [emphasis added]
Boy, this Bargain is getting more Corrupt all the time, isn't it? In fact, this may be a bigger Donk coup than even the 2008 Democrat Financial Logic Bomb that made the Obama ascension inevitable. You know how I've warned for several years now that Barack Obama would pull a bookend crisis to exploit to keep himself in power beyond next January 20th? Make himself POTUS-for-life? Turns out it's taking the form of Trumpmania ensuring a third Obama term through Hillary Clinton.
Any of you Trumplicans who are sick to death of me telling you, "SEE, I TOLD YOU SO," there's a very simple, straightforward solution: Admit you were wrong all along, that I was right, and repent of your sins, even now that it's too late. I'm very forgiving....to a certain point.
