As regular readers know, I don’t give two merdes about the Goat Rodeo money chase. Except when I do, and boy-howdy, the news today from the 4th Reich is bad:
…is blasted across the most expensive real estate in all of journalism and contains a multitude of examples of poor decision-making:
- Super Bowl ads that cost $11 million.”
- “$156,000 for planes to pull aerial banners in recent months.”
- “Hershey Company, the chocolate-maker ($337,000), which cover costs for items such as the White House-branded M&Ms given away by administrations of both parties.”
- Former campaign manager Brad Parscale “had a car and driver, an unusual expense for a campaign manager.”
So of course, they are blaming it on Parscale. He’s not taking it lying down:
Hysterically, well, to me anyway, is this related headline in Bloomberg:
“President Donald Trump has discussed spending as much as $100 million of his own money on his re-election campaign, if necessary, to beat Democratic nominee Joe Biden, according to people familiar with the matter.
“The billionaire president has talked about the idea with multiple people, though he hasn’t yet committed to any self-funding, according to people briefed on internal deliberations. Though Trump personally contributed $66 million to his 2016 campaign, it would be unprecedented for an incumbent president to put his own money toward winning a second term.”
Anyone believe that?
