Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Wednesday, October 21, 2020

New financial forms show that President Donald Trump's re-election campaign is badly outgunned financially by Joe Biden's campaign in the final stretch of the 2020 election and that President Trump has donated $8,000 of his own money to the campaign.

Trump is keeping his powder dry for that midnight run to Brazil or Russia.

I bet the Drudge Retort Deplorables have kicked in more than billionaire genius Trump himself.

Hmmm, read the headline and thought of Tevia in Fiddler on the Roof singing 'if I were a rich man.'

At this stage in 2016, the broke 'billionaire' mysteriously got $10,000,000 from an Egyptian bank.

Remember then how he bragged he was so rich he'd fund his own campaign? All he's done both elections grift.

Turns out that Trump's ass is owned not only by the Russians but the screaming Chinese.

Donald Trump is a political sex worker. A common whore.

Trump said he'd spend "whatever it takes" of his own money. Biden did not.

Trump is way behind in money and ads. Trump is way behind in polling.

Trump claimed to be a billionaire who could self fund. Biden didn't.

Numerous Republican Campaign Strategists complain Trump is lining his own pocket with the campaign donations. No one is claiming that with Biden.

Look for yourself: docquery.fec.gov

It's a fact. Deal with it, Snowflake.

Just to make it easier on the right wing idiots...

Trump has contributed $8,020.58 to his campaign for the 2020 Election.

Here is the FEC filing showing it: docquery.fec.gov

This document covers all his contributions since his 2020 campaign began. His contribution appears to be from several years ago.

When Trump said he was going self-finance in 2016, he only LOANED his campaign the money and paid himself back later from donor money.

This time Trump is only kicking in a piddly $8,000 ~ which isn't going to last more than a few hours. This tells me that Trump's donors have all but dried up and he expects to take a loss. In short, the cheap S.O.B. is minimizing his damage.

It also tells me he has zero expectations of being re-elected. All he's doing now is putting up a front to keep the wolves at bay.

"... he has zero expectations of being re-elected."

Trump is going to lose, and he knows it. That's why he's not trying to reach out to any Biden voters, but rather throwing out red meat to the folks he's planning on charging $9.99 a month for Trump TV.

Trump's still got his Jr High lunch money.

Maybe. But I doubt it.

And why would he need to keep it in a Chinese bank?

$9.99 a month?

Donald Trump never uses his own money. He'll find a way to steal it back from somebody.

His subscription service has to cost less than Disney+

So .99 per month is more like it...

Donner, I was pointing out something similar to what Twinpac posted in #21. He doesn't use his own money, he borrows, goes bankrupt, or outright stiffs anyone who comes acrosss him.

$8K is probably all he could scrape up. He's broke.

He's broke. He owes a billion dollars, much of that coming due in the next few years. There's an old saying about throwing good money after bad, he knows he's going to lose. In spite of his bluster, claiming that they're going to win back the House (HA), win the Senate and the WH, his internal polling is showing what all the public polls show, he's way behind, his October Surprise is a bomb because nobody believes somebody who has lied to the American people over 20,000 times in the last four years, and everybody saw that he was impeached for trying to do the same thing when he extorted Ukraine.

So there's no use throwing money at a lost cause. What's interesting is that Rick Wilson, who still has great contacts inside Dotard's campaign and in GOP world generally said that the campaign is so broke they've pulled down adds in almost all the battlegrounds to focus on FL and GA, but that they've also stopped paying their lawyers. In my experience, lawyers don't work for free. I understand the theory, that if he is declared the winner of FL, GA and TX on election night, he will declare victory, even though counting will continue for days after. He can then unleash the unpaid lawyers and the DOJ to try to seize uncounted ballots and run to court to have certain ballots declared invalid. I'm still hoping Joe can pull out a win in FL a state that Dotard has no possible map to victory without and will be finished counting on election night, but it's too close, those in the know say he needs to be up by five to win a tight race, and he's not.
