:eyes:

But, the truth of it is...He just LOVES US DEMS! Look at his Contribution History. "The Donald's Money" goes where it makes a difference!

I can't post but snips of the whole article, but here's something we DU'ers need to know:

Donald Trump's Donations to Democrats, Club for Growth's Busy Day and More in Capital Eye Opener: February 17
By Zachary Newkirk on February 17, 2011 6:00 AM

After McCain, the Republican with the largest amount of Trump's contributions is former Rep. Mark Foley (R-Fla.), who left office in disgrace in 2006 when his online solicitation of male House pages became known. Trump contributed $9,500 to Foley between the 1996 and 2006 election cycles.

Trump has also supported other notable politicians, including:

$7,000 to former Sen. Ted Kennedy (D-Mass.), the "liberal lion of the Senate"
$7,500 to former New York City Mayor Rudolph Giuliani (R)
$5,500 to Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.) including $2,000 during his 2004 presidential run
$5,000 to former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.)
$4,000 to former Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle (D-S.D.)
$2,000 to former President George W. Bush (R)
$1,000 to then-Sen. Joe Biden (D-Del.)

Trump's donations to various political action committees and 527 groups also demonstrate his bipartisan checkbook.

During the most recent election cycle, Trump contributed $170,000 to the Republican Governor's Association, $50,000 to the ultra-conservative American Crossroads PAC, $30,400 to the National Republican Senatorial Committee and $10,000 to the Democratic Party of New York.

However, of the nearly $420,000 Trump has donated to committees, the largest recipient has been the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee with $116,000 -- or more than one fourth of his total contributions to all party and political action committees.

MUCH MORE at..........Open Secrets!

4. Yeah, this is the weird thing about his Fake Presidential Run.
I think he is a consevative guy, but I remember him being critical of Bush.

My guess is that he doesn't believe a DAMN WORD he is saying. He certainly is not DUMB, there is no way he is a Birther. Despite what he says.

8. What if it's all a giant performance peice? It would be brilliant!
He could say he studied the POTUS birther issue with all his money and then...............................

he announces that HIS experts say it's hooey.

This would be beyond the great continuous performance of Stephan Colbert. Because of the awesome concentrated social mind fuckery

Trump would be golden!!!

10. He seems like one of those Hillary supporters who just lost it when Obama won the nomination and
bought into every crazy-ass conspiracy against Obama.

It was a small segment who just seemed to really lose it. All of the rest of the wonderful Hillary supporters - I'm NOT talking about you. :)
