Tiger Beat on the Potomac (thanks Charlie!) morning email thingie tells us that a fool can fool all of Possum Hollar all of the time:
GREENE RAKES IN THE GREEN: We have a scoop for you this morning: Freshman Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.), the controversial MAGA firebrand, raised over $3.2 million in the first three months of this year, according to a source close to her campaign. That eye-popping haul came from over 100,000 individual donors, for an average donation of $32. Greene did not self-fund this quarter, the source added.
How could this happen, you ask?
Greene appears to have actually benefited from all the controversies that have consumed her first few months in office. She directly fundraised off of Democrats’ decision to kick her off her committees for past incendiary rhetoric and warned her supporters that Democrats are trying to expel her from Congress. Greene is also still a fan favorite in Trumpworld: she met with Donald Trump at Mar-a-Lago last week and they posed for a video together.
Water seeks its own level, even in the sewer, it seems. Then Tiger Beat has an instructive quote from their unnamed source (of course unnamed: it’s Tiger Beat, after all, gossip is their stock-in-trade):
“Over 100,000 individual donations says it all. The People are with Marjorie Taylor Greene and her America First agenda. It’s clear she’s the heir to President Trump,” said the source close to her campaign. “While politicians inside the Beltway attack her daily, Americans are rushing to stand beside the Notorious MTG as she fights tooth and nail on the House floor utilizing procedural tactics to shut down Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats’ hostage takeover of Congress.”
OK, a few things:
- Notorious MTG – No. Just stop it. Praise be to the blessed Notorious RBG.
- Heir to Lord Damp Nut is wild positioning. The Betting Window is open and get your Quatloos ready for Hair Füror to demand that they stop using his name without paying the branding fee.
- The hostage takeover of Congress – which is called an election that the Coup Klux Klan failed to overthrow.
Anyway, this is pretty clear sign that the politics of White Grievance is a million-dollar bidness. Let’s keep an eye on this, I smell a trend.
