Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Tuesday, November 22, 2022

Speaking to a group of voters who at one time supported Donald Trump, he asked them about their attitudes toward the former president, and they weren't positive. The small group of voters from mostly red states said words like "narcissist," "tired" "unsettling," and "mistake." There were still a few who viewed Trump with words like "high hopes," "fighter" and "a leader." At the same time, Luntz said that Republican voters are "angry at him for the candidates he supported and his lack of support for them when they needed it most."Trump was raising money for other candidates by using their lists and then having the funds go through his website. It turns out he was giving as little as 10 percent or 15 percent to the candidates and keeping the rest for himself.

Are these folk still donating money to fmr Pres Trump for him to ~share~ with the other candidates?

As a corollary --- how long after this apparent scam was exposed did the donations continue?

It's not like they weren't warned
If they were smarter they would realize It's the GOP who propped up Trumps grift, but they aren't
In fact, there will be one of them here on the DR any moment commenting on how this can't be attributed to GOP leadership. Because you know, the GOP isn't going to entertain trumps BS for long

It's just an 85-90% service fee. That's fair.

I just noticed...

Wounded Warrior Project: Is it a Scam?
blog.uspatriottactical.com

...The Wounded Warrior Project, WWP, is a not-for-profit charity that aims to assist wounded veterans with their needs. In fact, they are one of the largest programs out there for wounded veterans. Recently, however, they have been accused of being a scam and donating an insignificant portion of their funds to their declared cause. If this is true, WWP is pretty low to run campaigns under the guise of assisting some of our nation's bravest only to pad their own wallets with those funds. Before we accuse groups of being a scam, however, we need to do our homework....

Whenever I have a question about how much of what a charity ~accumulates~ compared to how much of that ~accumulation~ actually goes to the intended beneficiaries, I look to this this...

imho, they've been quite good... www.charitynavigator.org

So... what is said about the Wounded Warrior charity?

Wounded Warrior Project
www.charitynavigator.org

...The mission of Wounded Warrior Project is to honor and empower wounded warriors. Our purpose is: to raise awareness and enlist the public's aid for the needs of severely injured service men and women; to help severely injured service members aid and assist each other; and to provide unique, direct programs and services to meet the needs of severely injured service ...

OK, so let's go from there...

Continuing from the quote of Charity Navigator...

...Charity Navigator's Assessment

Charity Navigator, one of the leading watchdogs that keep eyes on charity groups, is a great place to look. Based on their assessment of WWP, they have an 86% score. That is not the best, but it is a far cry from being a scam. According to Charity Navigator, WWP is very transparent with their foundation and is well within the regulations set forth by the IRS. Beyond being within regulations, the percentage of Wounded Warrior Project money that is donated to their stated cause is 38% of all funds.

This, again, is not the best, but it is good. On top of that, nearly 25% of their funds are used for fundraising, which generates 75 cents on the dollar. So, as you can see, they are not only giving pennies on the dollar, they are giving a fair amount. Of $234,682,943 raised in 2013, over 91 million dollars were donated to their stated cause while another 76 million dollars were kept in reserve, not used or donated, but not spent on salaries either. The CEO did pocket $375,000, which is 0.23% of all funds available. Not too bad....

Trump has always looked for ways to fleece the public as well as the government to line his own pockets. He's not called a conman without reason.
