Trump super PAC in chaos over lackluster fundraising and excessive spending on ‘stupid things’: CNN

Published

on

According to a report from CNN, a super PAC closely aligned with President Donald Trump is in turmoil, with GOP operatives and donors complaining that little money is coming in and what is coming in is being wasted on fancy dinners and worthless projects.

CNN reports that Donald Trump’s flagship super PAC, America First Action, is under scrutiny over expenditures and its inability to raise funds like some other conservative political action committees.

“There’s the $33,000 spent last year on a single event at the Prime Rib, a swanky DC steakhouse, the $120,000 paid to two firms tied to former Milwaukee sheriff (and Trump super-fan) David Clarke, and the more than $460,000 spent over two years at Trump-owned properties,” the report states.

According to GOP operatives, the PAC is “an aimless operation struggling to deliver for Trump politically.”

“In the 2018 cycle, chairman and president Brian O. Walsh told CNN that America First and its affiliated non-profit together raised about $75 million, well short of its $100 million goal. About $39 million of that went to the super PAC, Federal Election Commission records show,” the report states, adding that the Republican National Committee raised more than $233 million during the same fundraising cycle.

“There’s a perception that people who got fired from the administration or couldn’t get administration jobs were just dumped there,” explained a GOP operative who claims he has spoken with potential donors to America First. “What fundraising they have done they’ve squandered on parties and other stupid things.”

Ex-evangelical rains hellfire on ‘moronic monster’ Trump for becoming the ‘pro-death’ president

Published

on

Appearing on MSNBC's "Am Joy," former evangelical Frank Schaeffer harshly condemned Donald Trump and his supporters for standing by while people are dying.

Speaking with host Joy Reid, the former evangelist launched an impassioned diatribe about the president, calling him a "moronic monster."

"We're at a time now when the naked lickspittle enablement of Donald Trump by his evangelical followers is more horrifying than ever," the MSNBC guest began.

"When we come to this time of COVID-19 overtaking our country, a literal life and death issue, we see two things very clearly," he continued. "One is the utter moral bankruptcy of this leader who pits himself against governors trying to save their people, and the second is the utter moral bankruptcy of evangelical, the white evangelical voter, having been rented out to this moronic monster who in this time of crisis, is far from being our Winston Churchill leading us to freedom against the Nazis in Germany."

Trump campaign ramps up smear campaign on Obama’s ebola czar for exposing the president’s COVID-19 bumbling: report

Published

on

Stung by a highly effective video he made for Vice President Joe Biden criticizing Donald Trump's response to the growing COVID-19 pandemic, the communications team working on the president's re-election is going after President Barack Obama's former ebola czar, Ron Klain.

Klain, who is now becoming a fixture on cable news, took part in a video ad touting the campaign of Biden, and used his expertise to rip into the Trump administration's efforts to deal with the national health crisis. That put a target on his back as the president's 2020 campaign team is trying to stem the damage that threatens the president's chances of being re-elected in November.
