Apparently the city of El Paso is a bit new to the rodeo. Cash up front, bitches. Consider it a lesson learned. Also, if you get too complainy there might be some traffic issues with that border crossing of yours.

And what are they going to do? Impound Air Force 1 next time he shows up?

The Trumpsters probably thinks they’re justified in stiffing the city because it dared to allow Beto to have a counter-rally and took some of the focus off Donnie.

Every time a trumper gets screwed, an angel gets its wings.

P.S. this is just snark-of course, anyone and everyone should be paid fully and promptly for services rendered.

Beto should run against Cornyn for Senate.

The Trump campaign said it would allow El Paso a credit against Trump’s standard appearance fee and reduce his bill to the city.

However, when dealing with a guy that has a decades long reputation for not paying his bills, then if you get stiffed you own at least 50% of the blame.

El Paso is primarily Democratic. No wonder Trump’s stiffing them.

I’d feel bad for El Paso. But you know, Texas.

What trumper got screwed here?

Why don’t Cornyn or Cruz take a page out of Cotton’s book and suggest the taxpayers just bite the bullet and fork it up? It’s their patriotic duty, or something. “I mean, it’s not they have to sacrifice like the WWII generation! So what if their city is 500k in the red for a meaningless photo op? Or their cows and crops sell for half as much? It’s a small price to pay for the pretend-president to look good.”

This crap really ought to be used against him repeatedly and loudly. Make it simple: “You work hard and pay your bills every month. Shouldn’t he?”

Even the dimmest deplorable can understand that.

Dear City of El Paso,

SUCKERS!

Sincerely,

Those who know better than to extend credit to Trump or his myrmidons.

Yes, he should, and I’ve always felt this way. He’s running for prez in a vanity campaign, and he’ll lose and we’ll never get a Senate majority if egos get in the way of the larger goal of a Democratic majority.

“The requests for oppo on him have completely died off,” a staffer at America Rising, a Republican PAC that does opposition research on Democratic candidates, told the Daily Beast. Requests to the R.N.C. for damaging information on Beto have similarly dried up. Even Fox News appears largely disinterested.

Speaking of vanity campaigns,

FTR, Beto’s campaign paid this particular debt some time ago.
