If you have family that donated to Trump online in the past few months, tell ’em to double check their accounts…

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.

    When I heard about this I laughed my ass off. Just sounds so much like something he would do and people trust him. Also really never surprised me to hear about this. It seems that in the last 10 years or so the divide between the parties has become greater than ever before. And it is filtered down even more to the general public more than I think any other time.

      What strikes me, but shouldn’t surprise me, is that a few folks that were interviewed assume he knew nothing about it (though he might be dumb enough to approve it and not realize he won’t be keeping all that money in the end), and they’re still behind him 100%. Ugh, NOTHING is gonna get through to these folks, even if they’re on the side of the road with cardboard signs wearing barrels like old cartoons used to show.
