There’s low, and then there’s a limbo bar so close to the ground an ant can’t get under it.
This is THAT low.
Now, I can’t stand the Dump. Not a surprise. And I’m sure there’s a ton of folks that are scoffing and going “whelp, you get conned by a con-man and you were warned, what do you expect?” to the ones who donated.
With all the job closures and everything that’s gone on the past year, I can’t say that. The year has been tough as hell and too many people have been stretched thin financially. As much as I don’t agree with the folks that love Hair Fuhrer, I wouldn’t want to see them go broke. That’s not kosher. No one should risk losing utilities, hospital payments, or homes because they want to support a politician they like, and that politician (or his lackeys, or both) took advantage thanks to technology.
Even one as loathsome as you-know-who.
Heard a snippet over the weekend, and the NY Times mentioned it. Was cleaning house and David Pakman showed up in my YouTube and I gotta admit, I didn’t think I could be shocked again. Apparently, WinRed is the for-profit company that set this up for the Trump Campaign, and has the deceptive giving practices that turn a one-time donation into a recurring one. Some people were out thousands of dollars before they could put a stop to it.
This is infuriating to see, and yet, I wonder how many of his supporters will insist this is fake news. I didn’t get the chance to find the original tidbits I found, but these say a lot more anyway.
Here’s the video:

Seriously, I’m sure most of us know someone who wanted to donate online. This might be that bridge-moment some of us have been praying for to bring those who have grown to hate anti-Trumpers back to the fold, or at least a small one. Just a concerned message, hey, check your info. Or let ’em be. Chances are they already know by now, anyway, but yikes.
I wonder how many were impacted by this that they know about… time to browse the articles again.
