Why don't they just eat the cost so TFG can focus more important things like running in 2024?

A town full of fools and their money are soon parted.
 
2022-12-08 8:56:07 PM  
Well, at least Trump and Sioux Gateway Airport's location ID agree.
 
2022-12-08 8:57:01 PM  
The hardest stiffing TFG can give.

Chumps.

There are 1,000s of more rural towns around willing to get suckered.
 
2022-12-08 9:45:42 PM  
Wonder if anyone's keeping a running list of all the bills Drump stiffed on. It's be interesting to tally. Saw a story from a waitress that waited on him years ago, I think it was long before the Prez run, and he stiffed her for like a $2000-something bill lol.

(Idk if she had to pay it. When I was working at a pub in a rich part of Orlando, we would have to pay the bill out of our own tips if the customer walked out on the bill, sometimes eating the entire nights' wages, which never seemed legal to me)

Get paid in advance?

*RTFA*

Yup.
 
2022-12-08 10:34:44 PM  
My first thought: demand payment in in full advance. Followup thoughts: Specify American dollars and do not accept rubles or other US enemy currencies.

Can't feel too sorry for them

Kim Reynolds and Chuck Grassley were there. If they were willing to stand with the Seditonist they should put their money where their mouth is.
 
2022-12-09 12:06:12 AM  
Well, I'm sure they've seen the error of their ways and will refrain from supporting him in the future.

2: If you disregard rule 1, get paid up front

That'd require lower abdominal surgery.

Oh - Iowa city. Not Iowa City! Haha. I was gonna say.  As conservative as Iowa is, Iowa City is about as liberal as anywhere in the Midwest gets.

Absolutely not. That would be a call to the labor dept. so fast.

With the Trump campaign's reputation for stiffing host cities, I wonder he will be able to have any campaign rallies outside of Mar-A-Lago due to nobody wanting to host unless all is paid up front?

I bet you could make tons of money grifting small towns out of rally donations.
 
2022-12-09 12:33:33 AM  
A trump never pays their debts. Or taxes.

Seriously, everyone has known this since the 80's. You farking deserve it you delusional clown. If you didn't expect it consider that an expensive lesson in reality.

Business Cat is supposed to make poor, short-sighted decisions, like buying a boat or investing in crypto. Trump's eternal campaign machine is absurdly effective.

First you get the money.
Then you get the white power.

According to TFA, it's the Secret Service that hasn't paid.
«The biggest outstanding bill related to the rally is the $10,002.38 charge for police officers to staff the event that the Secret Service agreed to pay. City Finance Director Teresa Fitch said the city hadn't been reimbursed for that as of Tuesday.»

This also reminded me -- taxpayers will be footing the bill for protection for TFG and his crotch-spawn until they stroke-out and/or OD on blow.

Too easy.

The other lingering bill is a $1,425 charge that Event Strategies is supposed to pay for having emergency medical services on standby at the rally.


So enough for 500 cops and one refurbished army cot for the medical staff.

Is there even a single place he's been that he hasn't screwed out of money?  The biggest difference here is that they volunteered for it, I guess.
 
2022-12-09 12:49:14 AM  
Haven't looked at the article, gonna assume it's 'get paid for security up front.'
 
2022-12-09 12:49:48 AM  
Well, look at that, I was right.

His own properties.  Grifters gotta grift.

Make it simple.  Pass a law cutting off secret service protection for any president claiming to be a billionaire.  That makes it simple.  If Trump wants taxpayers to fund his protection, all he has to do is declare he's not a billionaire.

C'mon they grabbed everything they could carry out of the WH...
They were evicted & grabbed anything valuable.
They knew what they were doing.

The Biden campaign should very publicly pick up the tab.  $11k is pocket change these days.

You know it's $10/mo now, right?  I've seen it too!  There's way more than what's for lunch.  Lusting for Farkettes and Farkers over your spouse is pretty important too.

At least you're not getting the "look at Richard Simmons now" fullscreen popup that I've seen more and more lately.
