I still cannot comprehend how or why anyone EVER thought it was a good idea to allow this tone-deaf degenerate diva to "sing" her ode to the orange abomination.

About the only useful purpose Lara's "singing" might serve would be to blister paint off of large surfaces in preparation for a fresh coat.

Vice is nice, but incest is best, and nepotism is the most profitable.

We need a new role-playing game: "Loot The RNC".

Let's hope Lara Trump can do for the RNC what Wayne Lapierre did for the NRA.

I like the way you think.

I agree that spending ALL the RNC's money on Trump's legal problems is a good and wise use, compared to helping other Republicans from winning any election above deputy dog catcher.

“Actually, knowing the Trump cultists, they probably do think the RNC should pay his legal bills, even if that means taking money away from GOP candidates trying to win down-ballot races.”

I have no problem with this. All that Koch money can go straight the E. Jean Carroll and that sounds great

I'm waiting for Lara's new single, "Wife of a Son of a Grifter" (sung to the tune of Jimmy Buffett's "Son of a Son of a Sailor.")

" One step ahead of the jailer."

Does the GOP want to be ripped off by the Trump family? It appears they are too afraid to say anything.

As long as it keeps them in office? Apparently so.

I am fine with this. That said, I have a rule: if you have an asshole working for you, take what they bring and then add a 0 at the end of it. That's what you're eventually going to lose.

I support this decision by the RNC to commit monetary suicide. May the GOP continue to reap the rewards of putting any of these grifters in charge of anything. L'chaim!

"Unqualified"? That's not fair. Lara successfully helped lead the sham "foundation" of Eric's that stole money from kids with cancer.

She's got her GOP bona fides, see?

And her puppy mill dog charity almost covers the cost of the parties they throw to celebrate themself!

The MAGA were emboldened by the fact that they were handled with "kid gloves" during the January 6 attack on the Capitol. It was a pushing and shoving match when they should have been treated to ample use of riot batons by Capitol Police. They should have been beaten to within an inch of their lives. The restraint shown to them was, in my opinion, way beyond what was due.

They SHOULD have been charged with Treason!

So, they will now funnel money from Russia through the RNC instead of the NRA?

That is the plan!

Haley Barbour blurbed the book I co-authored. I believe the failure of the Barbour effort to save the RNC from Trump's grift ought to signal in blazing red that the GOP no longer exists as a political party. Under Trump and MAGA it has fully transformed into a terrorist organization.

Even "autocracy" is too soft a word. Trump rules by fear of violence. Any time that fear is based on real violence, the organization must be classified as terrorist.

Quite possibly the dumbest terrorist organization in history. Also they lack the fire to be truly dangerous in a violent sense. The MAGA talk a mean fight. but like Trump, most would turn tail and run at first sign of actual real violent confrontation. They do ,however, represent a troublesome political problem. Easy enough to defeat. Just don't vote for anyone with a (R) behind the name and encourage everyone you know to do likewise. If voters have any sense at all, Trump will lose by a true landslide and so will any down ballot candidates endorsed by him.

What's chilling is that the only thing that might save us is their gross stupidity.

Are you certain? They didn't "turn tail and run" on January 6!

What does a Trump endorsement and a contribution from the RNC get you?

NOT ONE FUCKING SECOND OF TV AD TIME HA HA HAAAAA HAAAAAA HA HA HAAA HAA HAAAAAA HAA

What a great grift!

So here's another data point in "the parties are not the same."

Let's say Chelsea Clinton were appointed co-chair of the DNC, and was reputed to be tasked with also funneling the donations to aid Bill Clinton's legal expenses.

I bet the coverage would be intensely negative on every network, and for weeks. Democrats themselves would entertain every single anti-Clinton conspiracy ala 2016 and all the Clintons would be hounded out of public life.

If Chelsea Clinton was put in charge of the DNC it could only mean one thing according to every news outlet. Hillary is going to replace Biden as presidential nominee at the Democratic convention this year.
