At last count Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump had been involved in over 5,000 lawsuits as both a complainant and defendant, and now we have another log for the fire.

The USA Freedom Girls, the traveling dance troupe that performed a fascistic dance number at one of Donald Trump's rallies early this year, has filed a lawsuit against Trump.

The dancers' parents came forward several months ago to say that the Trump campaign never paid them and stiffed them out of future performances, costing the group thousands of dollars. The group is now demanding compensation in court.

After nine months of haggling with Trump staffers, the group sued the campaign in Sarasota County, Florida, for as much as $15,000 in damages.

“This is not an opportunistic thing where we’re suing Donald Trump,” Popick said. “We’re not suing for emotional distress and all that other stuff that people do when they trump up—no pun intended—when they trump up a lawsuit. That’s not what this is. This is tangible dollars I spent under false pretenses.”

The moral of this story, and virtually every other story involving Donald Trump, is that you should not do business with Trump. Unless you are one of his Children of the Damned, you will regret it.

  • And even so, I’ll bet money that the parents will still vote for Trump. Because that’s how moronic these people are.

    If only people asked Drumpf about his lawsuits and scams as much as they ask Hillary about her emails.

    I try not to blame the victims of con artists. They are victims after all and no one deserves to be hurt in such a way. But Trump’s most passionate supporters (dupes that they are) are forcing the rest of us to live through this nightmare and in the process deeply harming their entire (and more importantly our) nation through their staggering gullibility.

    I’m trying very hard not to hate these people.

    On the one hand, the Trump campaign stiffed a group of kids who performed at a Trump rally.

    On the other hand, it’s the freaking USA Freedom Girls.

    I sincerely hope both sides lose. Does that make me a bad person?

      If it does, I no longer want to be a good person. Those girls would give the ghost twins from The Shining nightmares.
