Billionaire who donated to Trump in 2016 donates to Biden

Source: The Hill

Jennifer Pritzker, a billionaire who donated to President Trump in 2016, made a $2,000 donation to Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden in August.

The donation pales in comparison to the $250,000 she donated to Trump in 2016, though it underscores Biden’s effort to court supporters from the other side of the aisle.

...

In a July 2017 opinion piece in the Chicago Sun-Times, Pritzker said Trump’s decision to reinstate a ban on transgender individuals serving in the military “hurts our armed forces and shows a callous disregard for the rights of American citizens.”

Pritzker is a retired Army lieutenant colonel and the world’s only known transgender billionaire.

1. She Donated $250K to Trump, But a $2,000 Donation to Biden Makes It Okay?

I think that is just embarrassing for the billionaire, because it just draws attention to the prior Trump donation.

3. Here's a little bit more about her political views:

Political causes
Pritzker is a lifelong Republican,[2] and major donor to candidates and organizations such as the NRA, John McCain, and Mitt Romney.[3][4] However, as of 2019 she is reevaluating her support, citing the Trump Administration's transgender military ban and other anti-LGBTQ policies: "When the GOP asks me to deliver six- or seven-figure contributions for the 2020 elections, my first response will be: why should I contribute to my own destruction?”.[26]

14. "why should I contribute to my own destruction"

That's the mental defect of all republicans. Her quote leaves out the part about "I contribute big time to other people's destruction."

The only time anything matters to a republican is when it affects them personally. "Hang the gays!!111" followed by "Gee. My son is gay, so I will now change my position."

9. Trans Republican Lives ...

Look, she's a bit of an odd-ball in the family, clearly wanting to shake it up both through her military service and museum, and her gender change. The rest of the family are all diehard Democrats.

At least she's seen the light ... if even just a little bit.

11. So she was OK with stomping on poor, minorities, immigrants, etc.

but when Trump went after people similar to her? That was too far.

Enjoy your tax cuts, Jennifer.
