Here’s some news, about Donald Trump’s racket of claiming the election was stolen so that he can raise gobs of money: its working.
I took a look through the local side of Trump’s fundraising juggernaut for the first half of 2021. It consists of political committees he’s been flogging for months now as a way to fight the mythical “election fraud” that he insists will be discovered any day now — provided you keep smashing that “donate now” button.
It turns out this is surprisingly effective. Trump — though out of office and not currently running for anything — raised more money during the first half of 2021 from Washington residents than any other Republican politician, here or elsewhere, according to Federal Election Commission data.
His Save America PAC and Make America Great Again PAC jointly have hoovered up nearly $700,000 from Washington state residents this year so far, the reports say.
It shows the Godzilla-sized sway Trump maintains over the base of the Republican Party, despite it all. His two PACs received more than 14,000 itemized donations totalling $697,700 from donors with Washington state addresses in just the past six months.
This is more than local GOP Reps. Jaime Herrera Beutler ($247,000 from Washington state donors), Cathy McMorris Rodgers ($197,000) and Dan Newhouse ($80,000) raised from state residents, combined. And they’re all up for election in 2022, while Trump may never be up for election again.
While some internet users are still waiting for the orange tinted huckster to save them from the menacing moron that is Joe Biden; Trump has taken them for fools. His Presidency was never about content or commitments but simply money.
