Report: Some Trump Donors Want Their Money Back

CBS News reports that some Trump bundlers have received calls from their donors asking for their money back following the release of the "grab 'em by the pussy" tape.

A prominent Trump bundler told CBS News that he “could not tell you how many” calls he’s gotten from donors in the course of the last day. After the Washington Post first published the tape, people want their money back, he said. [...]

According to the bundler, donors said they feel betrayed by Trump -- that their efforts have been a waste.

No shit?

Trump has never given a single cent to anyone he was not absolutely legally obligated to give it to. And even in those cases, Trump has fought legal battles to pay as little as possible to people he owes money to.

No donor is going to get their money back from Trump or any Trump-affiliated or Trump-adjacent entity. It's an open question what Trump will attempt to do with leftover funding after the election is over, but I think we can safely say he won't be returning it.

This is literally the price you pay for supporting Trump in the first place. No one remains undamaged after dealing with Trump. Everyone suffers.

    Uh huh…because Trump University, unpaid contractors, a failed casino, multiple bankruptcies, and The Trump Foundation didn’t tip you off? You bought the gold painted watches and the glass diamond rings knowing full well what they were. Enjoy your investment.

    Riiight. Because Trump didn’t make it obvious from the very start that he’s a racist misogynistic opportunist.

    These people don’t get to show buyer’s remorse now. They saw the package. They examined the package. They liked the package. They bought the package.

    What possible advantage did these people think America would have with this unqualified, disgusting clown as our Commander in Chief?!? The answer of course is none at all. This was a last ditch effort to install a puppet who would deliver them all the “limited government” nonsense they’ve been buying for years. More useless tax cuts and a deregulatory regime that would damage the perhaps even worse than the end of the Bush administration wrought. For sheer venality they were willing to endanger the entire nation and all American society.

    A hungry python must have a greater developed social conscience than Trump donors. Karma is a bitch and apparently it’s no mood. I hope this election is a full blown cataclysm for the GOP and the Trump donor’s investment. To hell with these people.

    SUCK IT!!!

    Yeah, too bad you poor dumb bastards, you weren’t listening from the start, the first speech he give ran down at least 4 different countries and made racist comments, so suck it, you should have listened.

      so suck it, you should have listened.

      They did listen. That’s why they liked him so much.

      It’s only now, when it seems likely that he’ll lose, that they want their money back. It’s not shock at his comments

        Such lovely people, this just makes me soooo tired.
