"Parscale has made some notable purchases, including a Ferrari, a Range Rover, a $400,000 boat, two million dollar condos and a $2.4 million waterfront house in Fort Lauderdale, Fla."

Doesn't Trump think of all the campaign money as his?  I don't think Trump likes people spending his money.

Aren't there still tens of millions of dollars from the inauguration still unaccounted for?

Parscale his the mother lode in 2016, and he's making bank.

Let's see if he lives to spend it.

The entire thing is a criminal Enterprise, grift from top to bottom. You think the bagman isn't going to make lots of money off this?

The question should be, if Parscale is making 40 million so far, how much are the various Trumps making?

It's not Trump's money. It's other people paying Parscale to get Trump elected. I'm sure Trump is fine with this.

Oops, wrong original. That was meant for EvilEgg.

"Elsewhere, the girlfriend and wife of Trump's adult sons - Kimberly Guilfoyle and Lara Trump - have each been getting $15,000 per month through one of Parscale's companies "

That's pretty good pay for .... what do they do?

Somebody should really do something about all these laws he keeps breaking.
 
2020-05-07 11:32:18 AM  
Is he paying strange men to gangbang his wife while he watches, like Paul Manafort?

It's very difficult to practice social distancing in a gangbang.

Companies owned by Brad Parscale - the president's confident and combative campaign manager - have already collected nearly $40 million this cycle.

Hey, you think it isn't damn expensive to build a Death Star?

What boggles my mind is the Worldometer coronavirus count always has multiple pro-Trump ads talking about what a good job he's doing.

/Always block them and report as "inappropriate"

He reportedly exploded and chewed out Chris Christie for raising money for the transition. He told Christie that the money was "His money." So yes, he thinks of the campaign money as his money.

But it's freaking stupid.
You want to stay off the radar you drive a Focus and wear clothes from Burlington
Trump et al in his orbit are stuck in the 80s conspicuous consumption era
Besides it is also short sighted and stupid to think he's always going to have this type of money rolling in, farking invest don't spend
Trump surrounds himself with asshole amateurs
 
2020-05-07 11:39:09 AM  
In Parscale's defense, building the Death Star can't be cheap.
 
2020-05-07 11:39:16 AM  
And Trump is not going to be fine with someone spending his money
He already threatened to sue this guy when his poll numbers slipped

When you are (weakly AND weekly) disguising official business as campaign ads and rallies, there's buckets of money you don't have to actually spend on the campaign.
 
2020-05-07 11:50:51 AM  
Every dollar he loots from Trump's campaign is another dollar that won't go to help reelect Trump. Grab all you can Bradly.

spongeboob: And Trump is not going to be fine with someone spending his money

He was fine with it last time around.  Keep in mind how much of that money is going to wives, girlfriends and mistresses.

He threatened Parscale when his numbers slipped, and I'm sure Parscale came right back at him and said, "And I'll tell.  Everything."  And Trump backed down and told himself, "Hey - that kid's got balls.  I like that kid.  That's the kind of guy we need," to make himself feel better and convince himself he's not a weak-ass biatch.

What you're thinking of is the official campaign fund.  Trump's name was already on that money.  Parscale is not only the campaign manager, he also owns the private company the campaign uses for their media buys.  What we're talking about here is money SuperPACs pay to Parscale's company directly, bypassing the campaign committee.

It's going to re-elect Trump.  They're tracking the money paid to Parscale's business that does all the media for the Trump campaign.

That would only be an issue if he paid his bills.

What's his tab with the multiple cities he's stiffed?

The answer may surprise you, but barely enough to cover the interest on his enormous debts.

Good.  I hope that campaign leaks like a farking colander.  Less money for those obnoxious internet ads.

I have a strange feeling that some mysterious company is going to appear out of nowhere and with curious funding declare war on ad blockers.

At some point, you're going to have to explain where the money came from.  And the person asking isn't going to like the answer.

If I were to... say start a factory that proudly made Confederate flag coronavirus masks and coincidentally proudly declared that coronavirus was a hoax and we wouldn't be implementing any safety/sanitization procedures at the factory, and didn't give any sick leave to workers who tested positive for cv-19 since it's a liberal hoax and randomly assigned anyone with a bad cough to work directly on the mask packing line, would the ends justify the means?

He uses his campaign money to fund all of his personal legal expenses when it comes to trying to enforce bogus NDAs, suing critics, intervening in investigations, and defending himself during impeachment.

It would not surprise me if Trump and his Crime Family and their cronies managed to convert most or all of the campaign funds for their personal use. They just can't help themselves, grifting is one of the primary traits that got them hired. I'm not sure that the big donors care either, they are buying influence, not Trump's reelection.

No don't.

On the one hand Trump has amassed the greatest campaign chest of any politician in history.  One the democrats can not hope to match.

On the other hand, it is Trump, so he and his cronies will steal most of it.

Do not report them.  That is exactly where I want them spending their money.

Parscale is feeding Trump inflated approval numbers while he robs his campaign blind.

I use an ad blocker so I don't see this. Makes me wonder about what the people paying for the ads are thinking. On the up side, it does associate Trump with a massive death count.

Sex Trump's sons. I wouldn't do it for ten times that.
