Donald Trump - satirist extraordinaire

What'sup with Trump? He's playing with your mind! That's what. No billionaire I've ever read about is as silly, as inarticulate as Trump has been in the past two weeks. He sounds more like a dumbed down Stephen Colbert than like a serious politician. Take note of the information below and see if maybe you can agree with me that it is satire, not politics, that motivates Comeover Man.

"Billionaire Donald J. Trump, an early presidential favorite among tea party activists, has a highly unusual history of political contributions for a prospective Republican candidate: He has given most of his money to the other side.

The real estate mogul and “Celebrity Apprentice” host has made more than $1.3 million in donations over the years to candidates nationwide, with 54 percent of the money going to Democrats, according to a Washington Post analysis of state and federal disclosure records.

Recipients include Senate Majority Leader Harry M. Reid (Nev.), former Pennsylvania governor Edward G. Rendell, and Rahm Emanuel, a former aide to President Obama who received $50,000 from Trump during his recent run to become Chicago’s mayor, records show."

"The most notable Democrats to receive Trump’s money include Hillary Clinton, Charles Rangel, Harry Reid, Max Baucus, Charles Schumer, Joe Lieberman, John Kerry, Chris Dodd, and the late Edward M. Kennedy."
