MSNBC host Rachel Maddow exposed the “veterans group” using an appearance by Donald Trump as a fundraiser on Tuesday as an apparent one-man organization.
Trump’s appearance aboard the USS Iowa, she explained, was an event benefiting Veterans for a Strong America, with tickets ranging between $100 and $1,000.
However, Maddow said, the Federal Election Commission filings for the group’s PAC reveal that, besides having only $30 cash in hand and $318 in debts, the organization’s only member is founder Joel Arends.
“Donald Trump was not in the military, but he did use a pretty military backdrop tonight to raise money for a non-existent veterans’ group, which endorsed him formally as part of his introduction — and he said they have hundreds of thousands of members,” she said. “And they don’t. And so the whole thing is fake.”

You know I am sorry to admit that I watched this "speech" last night, but I have no idea why the speech was given, or what the point was behind it.
Unless the entire point was to raise money for this one guy, which I also don't understand.
Trump said he was going to talk policy, but unless I suffer from narcolepsy and passed out during that part nothing he said could be construed as having anything to do with a real in depth policy.
In fact the entire speech sounded as if the "I" key on his keyboard was stuck.
"I...I...America...I...I...drugs pour in...I...I...build a wall...I...I...make America great again."
Now look I enjoy a circus just as much as the next guy, but hasn't this particular clown overstayed its welcome?
Hard as I try I can find NO reason for Donald Trump to be at the top of the polls for GOP candidates.
At this point it seems as if the Republicans hate the Republican party so fucking much that they are willing to nominate a guy who will guarantee its demise.
Could that be it?
And if it is, does that kind of explain Sarah Palin as well?
