What the fark is with that page?  A one paragraph story followed by a list of links to random bullshiat.

Also, I think he fails to see the point of kickstarter when he inevitably demands complete ownership of anything he funds.

Another begging site

abhorrent1: Another begging site


But on this one you can beg directly from the Donald. So ask for $1 Billion to build an undersea resort/evil liar catering to the Republican Illuminati and you are in.

The website is fine, just make it 20% less cooler...

The direct link.

How long before it goes tits up?

Shortly after it stops letting anyone but minor celebrities launch projects. Well, minor celebrities and that one really irritating user everyone wants to go away.

That makes it sound like he's trying to aim it at his derp following.  I wonder how long until it's overrun with people trying to fund magic weight loss pills and free energy machines that  they don't want you to know about.

This is going to be the classiest, most classy crowdfunding website in the history of class.

I clicked around the site. It's looks like a blatant ripoff of Kickstarter with none of the quasi-legitimacy that Kickstarter offers (or at least reward tiers).

I like Kickstarter, and I throw money at cool stuff. If you do your homework and think about the scope of the project, it's not that much of a gamble. And if something falls through, you live and learn.

What is the state of Donald Trump's health and is he likely to die soon? Because that is the only article about that schmuck that I would enjoy reading.

Oh Gawd.  Now I want to flood it with fraudulent ideas that mock Trump.

Maybe a casino in Atlantic City.
A toupe company.
A trout-pout treatment process.

Maybe someone with more ambition than me can kickstart this idea.

Trump's a tard, say that 3 times fast.

There's one important distinction. Kickstarter takes 5% (plus processing costs) if your project gets successfully funded.

TrumpAnything takes 9% of your contributions (again, plus processing) ... and then generously gives you back 4% if you get funded.

Seriously, the blatant greed and dishonesty are almost ... Trumpian in their scale.

Yep. It's gonna be H U G E.

Fark needs to start a project to get funds to help Donald have that muskrat surgically removed from his head.

They should call it TrumpPumper

Wow, I'll do a lot of "not visiting" that site.

What a New York turd he is.

A golf course in Scotland built next to a wind farm.

Someone should start a "Buy Donald Trump a 'Hair Club for Men' Membership" one.

This is sage advice

The Donald is jumping onto another bandwagon?  What a shock.

I say we just hire 3 guys from Jersey to hold him down while another shaves his head.

Don't be silly.  He will only "fund" the highly successful projects.  Even the ones that are highly successful despite him, he'll just claw back his percentage.

And let's not forget when this venture fails, he'll declare bankruptcy and let taxpayers foot the bill.
