Donated to Biden/Harris, local senate candidates, and the Lincoln Project.

Thanks for the reminder Don. Time for me to give to the Lincoln Project. Their ads are sometimes the days best entertainment.

For all the suckers donating to the GOP.

Perhaps you have been wondering how trump managed to piss away $1.5 BILLION dollars since the start of 2019. How he manages to now have only $63 million left and has been cancelling TV ad buys like a crack addict selling everything they own.

Well there were the personal legal fees that he used campaign donations for.

"The Trump campaign recently sued a Wisconsin TV station for airing an ad from Democratic super PAC Priorities USA, arguing that it misrepresents the president’s statements on the coronavirus outbreak. The TV station asked the court to dismiss the lawsuit, calling it “speech-chilling litigation.”

"There are also multiple former aides who have been hired by the Trump campaign or the Republican National Committee after leaving the White House. Omarosa Manigault Newman claims that when she left the administration, she was offered a $15,000-a-month no-show job to keep her happy and quiet. ...other former White House aides have taken a similar path, including a former bodyguard, Keith Schiller, and a body man, John McEntee, who was fired amid a fraud investigation but, because irony is dead, has since returned as head of personnel for the White House....

Some costs come from sops to the president’s fragile ego. The campaign has spent more than $1 million on ads in the District of Columbia so that Trump will see them, even though neither D.C. nor Virginia nor Maryland is likely competitive in November. It also shelled out $11 million for Super Bowl ads in order to go toe-to-toe with Michael Bloomberg."

He spent tens of millions at his own business, $100k to buy magnetic pouches so WH insiders couldn't use their cell phones to record his lies. On and on. The total One billion four hundred and forty million dollars.

You all should be so happy for your donations to trump and the GOP.

Evidently up to $360 million of the $1.5 billion raised by trump were directed through limited liability companies to conceal what the money was actually used for.

'Many of the specifics of Mr. Trump's spending are opaque; since 2017, the campaign and the R.N.C. have routed $227 million through a single limited liability company linked to Trump campaign officials. That firm, American Made Media Consultants, has been used to place television and digital ads and was the subject of a recent Federal Election Commission complaint arguing it was used to disguise the final destination of spending, which has included paychecks to Lara Trump and Kimberly Guilfoyle, the partners of Mr. Trump's two adult sons.

Millions more followed to firms tied to R.N.C. and Trump-linked officials, including more than $39 million to two firms, Parscale Strategy LLC and Giles-Parscale, controlled by Mr. Parscale since the beginning of 2017....

the trump GOP cash machine spent ""Under Mr. Parscale, more than $350 million — almost half of the $800 million spent — went to fund-raising operations, as no expense was spared in finding new donors online,"

Nearly $100,000 spent on copies of Donald Trump Jr.'s book “Triggered,” which helped propel it to the top of the New York Times bestsellers list.

— Over $7.4 million spent at Trump-branevada nded properties since 2017.

— At least $35.9 million spent on Trump merchandise.

"President Donald Trump’s campaign is secretly paying one Trump son’s wife and another one’s girlfriend $180,000 a year each through the campaign manager’s private company, according to top Republicans with knowledge of the payments.

Kimberly Guilfoyle, the girlfriend of eldest son Donald Trump Jr., and Lara Trump, wife of middle son Eric Trump, are each receiving $15,000 a month, according to two GOP sources who are informal White House advisers and who spoke on condition of anonymity.

They were unsure when the payments began but say they are being made by campaign manager Bradley Parscale through his company rather than directly by either the campaign or the party in order to avoid public reporting requirements.

“I can pay them however I want to pay them,” Parscale told HuffPost on Friday, but then declined to comment any further."

It might not matter but it seems like Trumps campaign is flailing around over Biden's online donation advantage. Given that Trump is his own worst enemy helping that advantage seems smart to me.
