To paraphrase Hawkeye Pierce: "The instrument has yet to be invented that could measure

how little sympathy I have for the people who ignorantly let Trump steal thousands of dollars from each of them."

Most will vote for him again in '24 if he runs.

If they are looking for sympathy, it's in the dictionary between "shit" and "syphilis ".

1. I'm am surprised that some of those Dumbass's spoke up.

They are usually ready to suck his you-know-what and kiss his ass, without question.

It always brought me back down to earth when I was being a Drama Queen teen.

Here's how sorry I feel for them, even though it was a particularly sleazy move on the part of their Maximum Leader:

For a bunch of them. Maxing out their cards and they couldn't pay up. Maybe couldn't even pay minimums. He's slick and they are dupes.

10. Generally, I feel that way, but the guy in hospice, who had NEVER donated prior but was

compelled to do that out of some demented sense of heroic intervention and then spent half of his monthly meager funds that was repeated multiple times devastating his remaining funds.

I feel about that the same way I feel about those bamboozled by the tv grifter preachers. Yes, they were STUPID to be so manipulated, but it is tragic, nonetheless.

the tragedy is their mindset...the guy in hospice saw nothing wrong with the horror that was/is Trump...he knew what he was doing with his supposed one-time only "Trump is my guy" donation ...Trump fleeced him...oh, well

15. I always have sympathy for victims of theft

especially when that theft has been enough that their bills are going unpaid. What those bastards did to people, especially old people, is unconscionable. Yes, they didn't read the fine print, but that fine print shouldn't have been there in the first place. The whole thing was set up as a grifting operation.

A few of them might wake up to what that man is but you're right, most of them won't. However, I would suspect that their days of contributing online are over.

22. I'm with you. I feel sorry for those who might be older and retired.

Years and years ago, I did volunteer work with the elderly and one lady in particular was just the best person ever. I would get her mail in for her when I arrived at her house and one day noticed that she was getting a lot of money from the PTL Club (Jim Bakker). God only knows how much money he stole from her. It broke my heart to see how devoted she was to that criminal, and yes, I had sympathy for her.

23. I knew somebody like that, she was also sucked in by Jim Bakker

back in the old days when he was fleecing the faithful while Tammy Faye wept.

Fortunately, this lady was very old money, rich as Croesus, and relied on religious bullshit to help her cope with an alcoholic husband, so I kept my trap shut as she showed off all her televangelist bling.

It's just very different when they're scamming money from people whose Social Security isn't allowing them enough to eat, and that's what Dumdum's gang of grifters was doing. At least the televangelist scams had an element of choice, Dumdum's grifting was involuntary on the part of the suckers.

I do feel sorry for them, the same way I feel sorry for the people on those Dr. Phil episodes about fake online love scams. I mean, I kind of get why some feel that Chump cultists don't deserve our pity, but I pity them anyway.

I thought they would scam people into making donations.

Never heard of one that gave money to people.

19. If only there had been some entity, I don't know, a "bureau" or something

that could look out for consumers and provide protection from financial chicanery.

Wait, do I hear the thundering of horse hooves? Could the cavalry actually be coming?

Not that any of these MAGAts would submit a complaint to the CFPB, but it's an interesting though experiment, nonetheless.

31. And what's abhorrent is that he bilked people to show he could

match up with Biden in fundraising
He knew it would have to be paid back! So where does he plan to get the money for that? Say election was stolen from him. Raise fraud payback $$ from more low IQs.

Hope you mean Frank

36. He runs short term Ponzi Schemes

He bilked the people in the fall and paid them back with money he raised after the election to pay lawyers and stop the steal. My guess is his lawyers will be left to hold the bag of IOU' S because he will tell them they weren't very good lawyers, didn't win him any cases.

40. Like Michael Cohen said in his book, their first MO is to make a lawyer

think that it is a privilege to work for Trump. He said at first there was absolutely no mention of compensation. Almost like it was understood that you didn't get paid. Cohen eventually had to ask to be paid.

You are suggesting that out of the $100+m tab to people that need to be paid back for their multiple debit contributions that the lawyers will pay that?

middle school and High School, titled: "GRIFTERS"

and of course a course titled: Civics...............

There should be a test on both subjects, and the student can't graduate without passing the test.
