The Donald Trump campaign on Saturday released its first "emergency" fund-raising email, in response to an ad blitz from the Hillary Clinton campaign.
"Right now we're facing an emergency goal of $100,000 to help get our ads on the air. We need your contribution by 11:59 P.M. Tonight," the email from Team Trump said.
"Crooked Hillary is about to invade your TV with ads attacking Mr. Trump. But we're preparing to fight back," it reads.
The email promises to release ads attacking Clinton on her role in Benghazi, the integrity of her donors and reported FBI probing of her private email server while secretary of state.
The urgent fundraising email is routine for most presidential campaigns. But it's particularly notable since Trump insisted repeatedly during the GOP primary season that he was self-funding his campaign, only to start asking for donations later on.
Self-funding campaign my ass!
How does a guy like Trump, with all of his supposed wealth, not have $100,000 in his back pocket?
And what do his supporters get for their contribution? A couple of measly ads attacking Hillary over Benghazi and the e-mail "scandal." Damn that's weak!
Trump is also claiming that he has personally spent 55 million of his own money to finance his campaign, but as the Atlantic pointed out in back in May, those are actually loans that "the Donald" will more than likely demand to be paid back by the RNC or by his donors.
Let's face it, the guy is simply a fraud. Or using Charlie Sheen's description, a "big bag of dogshit."
