The list is long, but this one is a whopper that I am surprised Ted Cruze hasn’t used it to make his case against “Sleazy Donald” as he is trying to label him.

“I am the only one who is self-funding his campaign, so I am not beholding to billionaires,” he says. While that sounds righteous on the surface, it deserves a big long Pinocchio award. First off, he is LOANING his campaign the money, with the full expectation of getting it paid back from the small donations that are adding up to millions of dollars. The little people’s donations are being used to pay himself back already, by reimbursing his own companies for services related to his campaign. Maybe Donald should be challenged to actually pledge to NOT pay himself back……after all he can’t say that “Lying Ted” puts the Bible down and then starts lying if he puts the mike down and pays himself back. He needs to be true to his word, not like Lying Ted.

And to undermine his punch line about not be obligated to billionaires, make that two Pinocchios….after all Donald is first and foremost obligated to himself, and, oh yes, he is a billionaire.

With the kind of insider information that comes to a President, Trump will make a handy profit in the future, should he become one. Scrooge McTrump can’t pass up a money bath when his greedy little eyes see all the low hanging bucks out there. Even though he has small hands, I can see him hustling to pick it, like a squirrel gathering nuts for the winter. And this would be the last laugh he will have at our expense, and for him a good investment in running for president. Once a con artist, always one.
