The most concrete-thinking person alive on the planet fails to realize that when a major party in a superpower uses his name and image in publicity materials that’s a benefit to him. Stupid, stupid bastard. So very, very stupid.

This is only going to hasten the disintegration of the Republican party, which is a very good thing. Trump only wants to put as much money in his pockets as possible, they are all fools if he thinks they are going to get anything of value from him.

It’s a thinly veiled message to repubs to fellate harder, and look him in the eye when they’re doing it!

No it’s not, he want’s all the money related to his image going to him, not to the RNC where he does not have control of it.

But only a concrete-brained person would failed to realize that Trump is only in it for himself and doesn’t care at all for the Party.

The upside of all this is that the Trump spawns are going to get to careless and start using the money to their own business and they will all end in jail.

So he’s now the ‘Artist Formerly Known As Trump’?

(I’m not sure what kind of “art” is appropriate)

Ah but I disagree. He’s too fucking stupid to say “This raises my profile.” His pathological greed insists that he be materially compensated—i.e., with bucks. He can’t think that many moves ahead to be pleased with the publicity, is his problem. Strange in a guy reputed by some to be good at that. Are you calling me personally a concrete-brained person? I assure you I am not. :smile:

One interesting part, here in Georgia a lot of Democratic aligned PACs were also using the image of Trump to raise money.

There’s no way this can end badly.

I don’t understand it. He loves America so much.

I don’t think this was his lawyers’ idea.

Exactly! He’s going to divert perhaps hundreds of millions of dollars away from the RNC and, more importantly, organizations tasked with trying to take back the House and Senate. I’m 100% here for it. We just might wind up defying history and picking up seats in both chambers. Actually, there’s no historical context for a twice impeached president trying to grift his own voters and sink his party.

History itself has been defying history lately.

Don’t be so sure.

The list of Trump’s lawyers include names such as Michael Cohen and Rudy Giuliani. Trump doesn’t exactly attract the brightest of the bunch when it comes to lawyers.

Perhaps “Fartist” would be more appropriate? :thinking:
