Confederacy of Grifters

https://tinyurl.com/y37dnfnm

While Trump’s most loyal supporters were incited to criminal behavior that would cost them years of their lives, the fiancé of Donald Trump, Jr. demanded and was paid $60,000 for a three minute speech at the “Stop the Steal” rally on January 6th. If you wanted to make something up to smear the Trump family as greedy, banal leeches sucking the blood from their supporters it would be hard to top this. But hey, $60,000 is chicken feed compared to the $250 million raised off the Big Lie.

Always on the grift!

  1. At one time, Guilfoyle was a regular on Fox News. She popped up on shows like Outnumbered, The O’Reilly Factor, Hannity, and Fox and Friends. In 2018, she left her job abruptly amidst sexual harassment accusations from one of her former assistants. She denied all the allegations, but it has been reported that Fox paid the assistant $4 million to deter him from filing a suit.

    When you’re too tacky for Fox News, you’re TOO TACKY. Junior couldn’t manage to land a porn star like his daddy did, but he got the next best thing. Grifting is the least of their sins. And, just like John, the “Christian” right doesn’t care.

      “Topping the list by a longshot is billionaire birther and infamous reality-TV host Donald Trump. “The Donald earned a staggering $1.5 million per speech at The Learning Annex’s ‘real estate wealth expos’ in 2006 and 2007,” according to Forbes. “Trump appeared at 17 seminars and collected this fee for each one.”

      He was a well known entertainer and self-professed real estate genius. We know better now, but he drew the bucks 15 years ago. Judging by his confirmed con with Trump University, I suspect the seminar was a grift too. Kind of like those “free lunch/dinner seminars” about how to get rich quick using other people’s money. You get part A cheaply. Parts B and up cost a lot more. At least that is how Trump U worked.

    2. You clearly do not understand what a grifter is.

      The Clintons, Obama, G.W. Bush, Bernacke, Tony Blair and the others are selling something of value to rich people. Trump is stealing from poor people. See the difference?

      1. Um, the Clinton’s and Obama are stealing from the poor people. Apparently you don’t understand that little nugget of common sense. Such a superior mind and only crickets…

        1. Nonsense.

          Speaking fees are paid by rich people and big banks. Trump sucks money out of the pockets of poor people with his cons. The Big Lie con brought in $250 million from small donations.

          You really, really want to believe that Obama is up to no good so actual facts and common sense does not help you see straight. That is what conservative media does to otherwise normal people.

    3. …”for the Clinton crime family”.

      And what “crimes” did they commit? How much time did they serve in prison for those crimes?

      Or is everyone a criminal if they don’t do what YOU like?
