Can Trump Afford to Run a 2024 Campaign?



              I probably receive at least three or four emails every day from the blue team asking me to send them some cash. There’s always at least one beg from the DNC, and then a couple of others from individual campaigns with Sherrod Brown from Ohio almost always in the daily pile.

              The Dems have also started soliciting me via text messages on my droid. How they got my phone number God only knows. No doubt it’s another example of how the Biden gang has ‘weaponized’ the government against law-abiding citizens like you and me. Oh well, oh well.

              In all these solicitations, I’m given the opportunity to decide whether to make my donation a one-shot deal or an automatic, monthly charge. But either way, I notice that the ‘suggested’ donation starts at $50 bucks. 

              I can donate less if I want to, including nothing if that’s what I choose. But in some way or another, the blue team fundraising machers have decided that the least I can afford to send them is a U.S. Grant every time they ask. Not a Jackson or a Franklin, but a Grant.

              Which is why I found it really interesting and a telltale comment for the goings-on in the Trump campaign when the Fake News ran a story yesterday about how Lara Trump, the old man’s daughter-in-law and RNC co-chair, just sent out an appeal for funds with a suggested minimum donation – get this! – of five fucking bucks.

              My 16-ounce cup of coffee at Panera or at a Barbes & Noble café costs almost $4 bucks. If I add a stale croissant to the order, my breakfast runs $8 bucks and change. The Trump campaign is so desperate for money that if I skip breakfast one morning I can send the campaign almost twice as much as their minimum ask?

              As of the latest FEC reports, which go through the end of February, Joe has raised $126 million for his campaign, of which $42 million was individual donations and the rest ($77 million) came from other groups and organizations, like all those PACs you keep hearing about.

              Trump, on the other hand, has raised $99 million, of which only $957,000 came from individual donations, with $98 million coming from other sources, of which most of these monies were collected and spent during the GOP primary campaign.

              And by the way, Joe raised a whopping $90 million in March, which is an astonishing figure for a guy who the polls says is not qualified to run again.

              As of March 1st, Trump had $33 million sitting in his campaign bank account, Joe had $71 million lying around.

              Bottom line: Joe has raised a lot more money from individual donors, and he has spent a significantly less percentage of his cash on funding his campaign.

              Of course, Joe didn’t have to compete in all those primaries while Trump faced opposition from a bunch of candidates. But most of those other candidates dropped out almost before any votes were counted, and even Nikki Haley’s campaign turned out to be a dud.

              The more important bottom line is this: Joe’s campaign is cash rich, and Trump’s campaign is running out of dough. And Trump’s going to solve this problem by asking donors to send him five fucking bucks?

              I’m beginning to think that Joe can get re-elected without engaging in any campaigning at all. Maybe a few TV ads in this or thar swing state, but all he needs to do is run a quick video of all those schmucks running up the Capitol steps with Trump’s voice-over saying ‘we love you’ and then ramping up the volume for the ‘hang Mike Pence’ chant repeated again and again.

              I wish I could take credit for this strategy, but Karl Rove said exactly the same thing in an interview earlier this week on MSNBC: “If they [the Democrats] were smart, they’d take January 6th and go hard at it, and they would say, ‘He wants to pardon these people who attacked our Capitol.’ I worked in that building as a young man. To me, the Congress of the United States is one of the great examples of the strength of our democracy and a jewel of the Constitution.

              Now this is a lifelong Republic(an) who not only managed two successful Presidential campaigns, but he also got his guy elected as Governor of Texas who not only wasn’t born in Texas but had a grandmother who was a co-founder of Planned Parenthood and a father who was living in Maine.

              What Rove is really saying to the blue team is that we can win the whole thing in November by just letting Trump be Trump, which means letting him continue to shoot his mouth off no matter how stupid or crazy he sounds.

              Now Trump may not be just as crazy as Marjorie Taylor Greene, who said that the earthquake which was felt in New York City was a ‘sign from God’ that we have to repent. Next thing she’ll say is to repeat the comment made after 9-11 by Jerry Falwell who said that God was protecting the terrorists because New York City was a center of abortionists, feminists and gays.

              Not only doesn’t Biden need to run a campaign, but all the other blue team candidates should stay quiet and let the crazies on the other side explain why we need to ‘make America great again.’

              If you don’t live in Gaza, it’s going to be a very good year.
