Blunt force: Don Trump Jr. raises nearly $2M in 37 hours in Texas for dad

Don Trump Jr. swept through Texas last week, spending 37 hours speed-dating potential heavy-hitter business donors in Dallas and Houston.

It was the first time the presidential candidate's 38-year-old namesake had ever done any fundraising on his own.

Donald Trump's first apprentice is no longer an understudy in business or politics.

Don and siblings Ivanka, 34, and Eric, 32, are commanding their father's multibillion-dollar real estate empire while Trump campaigns for president.

2. That's pocket change in well-heeled Texas circles.

Are they trumpeting that as a big success?

5. I thought the same thing.

This is small beer, as they say in the UK. Bit sad really, right after their convention. This is when he should be able to raise a ton of money.

10. Peanuts.

The production cost to make a glitzy, 30-second, national political ad for a potential president can easily exceed a cool million, more if some famous actor is used. Then there's the cost of actually get the ad played in major media markets that can run several million for big event like a championship game, to around $400K for a spot during a top show in prime time.

So Junior worked real hard to buy his pops a couple of 30 second ads.

but it's still the same lame payola.
