Team A lawyers all quit for damn good reasons.

Wish lawyers were the only ones willing to keep cashing those checks

"This is all," Kumar said, "crazy, lunatic stuff."

And this is coming from the guy who made White Castle and 3D Christmas.

Trump's idiotically insane supporters are still absolute believers in the legal team though.

They're breathlessly waiting on every lawsuit, or planned lawsuit and circlejerk each other about how "these are the finest legal minds in America, they wouldn't say this stuff it they didn't have the goods to back it up and risk ruining ruining their unparalleled reputations"

His selection of attorneys directly parallels his selection of cabinet posts, and advisors. Competence, professionalism, and knowledge are eschewed in favor of blind devotion, sycophancy, and a willingness to publicly and privately acclaim Trump.

Though there are many things to be grateful about the end of this administration but, IMO, ridding ourselves of this type of behavior is the most significant for the overall well-being of this nation.

FTFA:
' "The president is entitled to whatever legal defense he wants to have. I don't think it's going anywhere. But he's entitled to it, and I am not going to contribute any funds to that. I will in fact plead with him to concentrate on Georgia's Senate races and I'll contribute to that," businessman Shalabh "Shalli" Kumar, a Trump and GOP mega-donor who leads the Republican Hindu Coalition, said in an interview on Tuesday.'

They still don't get it.  I'm guessing this guy probably worked his way up (as opposed to being an inheritance brat), so he's not usually stupid, but here he is expecting the leopard to change its spots.

/also not thinking that it will eat his face

Trump's made it clear he thinks he fairly lost the election. Once the soft coup failed all of the real lawyers left. All of these people on his team now are there to spin that loss for the public.

Steal Team Sux is made up of lunatics and AWs at this point.

So the smarter money is backing off and not supporting Trump's blatant attempt to steal the election but the rubes are still sending him money?

Figures.

fta: "No idea why they've gone quiet," said Foster Friess, a high-dollar Republican donor who chipped in $250,000 to America First this year. "Maybe they've run out of money."

Have I ever mentioned how much I loathe this guy?

He is one of the RW billionaire assholes who finance the RW propaganda media.

Hey, Wish has some amazing stuff.

It's not GOOD stuff, but it's amazing stuff.

"But they reflect the confusion among the more established Trump figures about what the president's ultimate end game is."

Grift... and lots of it.  It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure that out.

Alrighty. I have read Don Quixote, Don Quixote was delusional and predominately pathetic, but DonCheato is no Don Quixote. Don Quixote is lovable, that's his appeal. Trump has almost no appeal. People who say they like him are , for the most part, lying.

Just saw his wiki. He's a non-paying grifter like his idol, as well as a Indian fascist who loves Modi.

Trump seems to have borrowed a page from Canada Bill Jones' playbook:  "It's morally wrong to allow suckers to keep their money."

Actually, that should be translated to Latin and become the trump family motto.

Aldo Raine inconsolable.

On topic, can they even be referred to as a "legal team", or even a "team" at this point?  It's just a random collection of morons.  I wouldn't be surprised if some of them didn't even know where they were.
 
2020-11-25 8:54:56 AM  
Legal team useless when no crimes to address.

But the grassroots cash is still coming in.

ie: the gullible morons who can least afford it.

Republicans haven't stood for anything since before Dick Nixon. Even Ike distinguished himself by not really being so much a Republican but something more nonpartisan ( although he showed typical but uncharacteristic GOP cowardice when dealing with that mother farker, Gene McCarthy)

So we have to go back to Herbert Hoover's schitty sportsmanship after losing to FDR. Before him it was Cal Coolidge who was himself, quite a douche. So how far back do we have to go with the GOP to find someone with an ounce of integrity? Certainly not Grant who enabled and allowed the complete repression of the Indians.  Maybe Lincoln himself.

That's what I don't get.  If the lottery is the poor tax, Trump campaign donations at this point are the poor and stupid tax.

I have zero sympathy for the marks.  When even the Trump suckers on Faux "news" are saying that they can't see a path to a Trump victory, it ought to be obvious that they are throwing $ away.  Fark 'em.

It's like the hardcore birthers. Every time a new lawsuit was filed - and for those that didn't follow it, there were many, many more lawsuits filed than most people knew - they followed it fervently with an "Any day now! *This* is the one that's going to work!" attitude. The sheer number being filed gave them such hope, much like here where the fact that the Trump campaign filed 40 lawsuits means they must actually have some merit, when in actuality if there was real merit they'd probably just be filing ONE (or one per state).

I doubt they have run out of money. Trump is most likely pocketing it and putting it into an off-shore bank account.

I don't think Trumpworld will ever catch on to that part. They don't know how government works so they don't care.

Gotcha. Now that I've typed that word I have side bar adds for it.
Looks like a lot of stolen pictures with bs prices. A pretty good analog to the trump thing we've been dealing with.

Increasingly, however, the disagreements are bursting into the open, with operatives, lawmakers, and money men saying they find no utility in what Trump is currently doing.

Send ME the money! I promise I will spend it on . . . something.
That is a legally-binding guarantee!
