    Trump pushes back on NYT story on campaign refunds

    Former President Trump on Monday pushed back against a story published by The New York Times detailing questionable fundraising practices by his presidential campaign, accusing the newspaper of seeking to “disparage” his campaign’s grassroots financial support.
    “In yet another highly partisan story, the failing New York Times wrote a completely misleading, one-sided attack piece this weekend that tried to disparage our record-setting grassroots fundraising operation during the 2020 campaign,” Trump said in a statement through his leadership political action committee (PAC) Save America.
    “Except for massive voter fraud, this was a campaign that was easily won by your favorite Republican President, me!” he added, repeating the false claim that the 2020 presidential election had been stolen from him through widespread fraud.
    Trump’s comments come on the heels of a story published by The Times on Saturday highlighting how the Trump campaign had issued tens of millions of dollars in refunds to donors in the final months of 2020, a number that far exceeded the $5.6 million refunded by President Biden’s campaign.
    The unusual number of refunds was reportedly driven in part by online donors who in some cases had unwittingly agreed to weekly recurring payments to Trump’s political operation.
    At issue was a fine-print disclaimer in campaign communications that guided online donors to give weekly or double their contribution size.
    In his statement on Monday, Trump claimed that his “support in 2020 was so big” that The Times felt compelled to “defend” Democrats by calling the former president’s fundraising practices into question.
    Poor Trump is always a victim.

    The thing about malignant narcissists is that they embody in a primal fashion the ugly thoughts that most people at least try to conceal from others. Rather than try to tortuously defend an indefensible position or yield the point like a normal person, Trump just decides that he's right because he's right and anyone who contradicts him is wrong because they are wrong. Pesky little things like "facts" don't matter.

    Whatever else he is, by luck or intent he is one of the greatest trolls ever. That intelligent people can see him as useful I get. But as smart, or working to better the world or fighting child eating liberal elites or even a successful business owner baffles the intellect.

    Good thread idea. Saves us all some time.

    Bush2 was worse. Less controversial, but worse.

    And plenty controversial in his moment. A black president then the tea party then Trump then attempts to
    sink democracy overshadow how much Bush was held up as a villian by the world not just in the US.

    I still have a Bush sticker covering a hole in my closet. One of the best arguments against Trump is the Bushes, the CIA in the 70s Ronald Reagan Multiple war starting to protect their oil interests family from Texas is vehemently and unapologetically anti Trump from day one and they didnít start kissing ass like all the rest post victory.

    Why is it pathetic? I assume you mean the obvious, the spectacle of right wing politics is tragicomically personified in its avatar Trump, its bitter impotent rage laid bare for posterity. The George Wallaces of our present. It’s like we are the same person. Twinsies.

    You should try to put up better rebuttals of a thread Ponti if you want us to seriously talk about it. Personally, I am not biased against Trump but to say that he is not controversial is absurd at this point. Trump, whether you consider him the best President of USA or the worst or somewhere between these two extremes, thrives in controversy and doesn't shy away from it.
    He has been open about it ("I am not PC").


    One can be awesome and controversial. It's not one or the other.
    In the case of Trump, I personally think he's bad and controversial but your opinion may vary.

    So, please support your opinion that Trump is not controversial OR that talking about Trump's latest controversy is pathetic because I really don't get where that comes from.
    Trump himself would disagree with you. He loves controversy. He is edgy on purpose.

    You have to understand that any criticism of Trump causes his remaining supporters pain. They have tied their own sense of self worth to their image of him as an infallible genius who is simply too pure for this sinful world. Reading or hearing something that contradicts that delusion cuts them to the very core. Hence their need to devalue those who present facts about Trump they don't wish to hear, in an attempt to assuage some of that deep emotional pain.

    1. Interest free loans, that probably won't all get repaid.

    2. Historically, may become known as the greatest conman in history, recalling any number of Barnum's quotations.

    3. On the bright side, modern communications allows us to have a ringside seat on the Decline and Fall, And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. All these are the beginning of sorrows.

    Trump appointees in the Department of Health and Human Services last year privately touted their efforts to block or alter scientists’ reports on the coronavirus to more closely align with President Donald Trump’s more optimistic messages about the outbreak, according to newly released documents from congressional investigators.

    GOP parties on the corpse of science. How can anyone defend this guy?

    So what I hear is, presumably recent, fund raising has increased Forty Fifth's warchest by eighty five million, to the the Republican Party's eighty four.

    If ten percent of that gets recirculated back to Republican candidates, they should consider themselves lucky.

    Of course Trump blames McConnell for all Republican losses, and take sole credit for all Republican wins. His ego demands nothing less.
