GOP Fixates On Pop Culture As Trump Hijacks Party Fundraising | Rachel Maddow | MSNBC 1


Rachel Maddow looks at the bizarre fight between Donald Trump and the Republican Party in which Trump won't allow the party to use his name and insists that fundraising be done through his personal PAC, as Republican politicians focus on Mr. Potato Head, and Democrats pass vital, historic economic legislation on their own. Aired on 03/11/2021.

  1. If they thought for one second that he had any interest in the gop, they are sorely mistaken.

      Oh he has plenty of interest in their 💰

    • They know alright. They know they’ll never win another election with him, and he’ll milk them of all their cash and the last vestiges of, “credibility,” they may have among the hopelessly mislead. But, what can they do? Cut him loose? And have to face the kind of treatment the Dems have to face every day, from trump’s violent mob? Become targets of hate and daily death threats, with no money for the extra security they all need? Nah, they have chosen the other route. Get rid of Democracy, in every state they can. Shut out as many minorities, and any other voting blocks likely to be against fascism, by adding stacks of unnecessary restrictions to voting conditions and making it an actual FELONY for a lawmaker to try to help people get their votes counted! We’re going to have to keep fighting them tooth and nail until they’re annihilated. Or, they’ll get back in one day, and they’ll NEVER relinquish power again. It’s not like they can even pretend to be pro-Republic, or pro-Democracy, since the last weeks of Donny? We’re fighting fascism in all but name now . . .

    They know their constituents care more about being entertained and pandered to. They talk about useless or non-existent problems constantly.

    • @Pushcat9R as a Progressive I have a HUMONGOUS bone to pick with Maddow and MSNBC (Iraq war and Bernie Sanders hit pieces). But I will definitely double check the mail-in ballots thing, I wouldn’t be surprised!!!

    • @Ellie B. If you find it not to be the case please let me know. I don’t agree with the opinions that most of them spout, but they usually try to get provable facts before airing them and have made corrections for their mistakes. Unlike the entertainment side that just spews whatever.

    • @Pushcat9R you’re right, Republicans DID push for mail in ballots for state and local GOP in 2020!!! In Iowa, GOP mailed absentee ballots to voters without requests. In Pennsylvania, the GOP’s website promotes voting by mail: “Vote Safe: By mail. From home.” And in Ohio, the they sent mailers with Trump’s photo saying “Join President Trump and Vote by Absentee Ballot.” They even had Lara Trump’s voice recording call registered voters to mail in ballots!!! And of course Trump voted absentee himself. THOSE SNEAKY MOFOS!!!
      And I usually trust MSNBC on most facts, just not opinions, though i love Chris Hayes and Ari Melber is okay. CNN is a bit better. But I will NEVER EVER forgive MSNBC for firing Phil Donahue and Jesse Ventura for questioning the Iraq war. Like ever.

    isnt what Trump is doing panhandling?

    • It is worse. He is taking advantage of his Followers by acting like their concerns are his.
      It is a long Con.
      I am surprised that Trump has not asked them to Endorse their Covid Relief checks over to him.

      @Jeff Hinkle they don’t need to be conned, they’ll do it out of the goodness of their uneducated pathetic ignorance…

      @Jeff Hinkle In his own never-say-explicitly-what-you-want but speak in mafia code, that’s exactly what he is doing. He timed his latest grift to happen at the same time his cultists/believers get word that money is coming their way. I’m surprised the evangelical preachers are not furious with him for tapping into their grift!

    • @Kathleen Wyatt because there is only One issue that matters to them. Abortion.
      They will look the other way on every other issue.
      Ironically, Trump is not Pro Life, he is Pro Trump and will say whatever he needs to.

    • @Jeff Hinkle don’t give them any ideas.

  9. Most corrupt party ever

    • Absolutely … Hard to believe that Chump can slide even more into corruption and scams …. but there never seems to be any end to how low Don the Con can go.

    The grifter in chief, he’s only just started with them 🤣🤣🤣 by the time he’s done with the GOP they will be unrecognisable.

      @Lawrence Harris Well we were forced to vote for two mediocre and old white men because that’s who the majority of the country will vote for. Their were plenty of people more qualified but they wouldn’t be elected. America saw what Donald Trump did with the pandemic and how he divided the country and went with one they trusted more.

    • Lawrence Harris | March 13, 2021 at 2:47 PM | Reply

      @Renard Odrick So they voted in a White Supremacist.Biden said that integrating schools will create “a racial jungle” and he did not want his children to grow up in a “racial jungle” This was followed up in later years with Biden delivering eulogies for segregationist Strom Thurmond in 2003 and former Ku Klux Klan Exalted Cyclops Robert Byrd in 2010.

    • Renard Odrick | March 13, 2021 at 4:16 PM | Reply

      @Lawrence Harris well he said that in his past. I say Donald Trump has a history of racism but you’ll say what about the crime reform. So yes both have problematic history with race. I would suspect any white man close to their 80s would have biases against race in their past. But tell me if Cory Booker or Bernie Sanders were nominated would they get elected? Tell me would Ben Carson or Tim Scott would get elected? Barack obama had to be one of the most charasmatic well spoken men this planet has ever seen to get elected and yet if he was darker, I think he would have never been elected.

      @Renard Odrick Please link any history of Trump’s racism.
      Racism is the Source of Liberal Power. Liberalism is the Great Oppressor of Black America. Liberals believe that blacks are inferior, and can’t make it on their own.They want to keep Blacks on the government Tit so they will vote Democrat for the rest of their lives. “You Ain’t Black Unless You Vote For Me” — Joe Biden

      @Lawrence Harris Google Trump housing discrimination. He made his money from racism. And he openly encourages and sides with white supremacists. Just stop

    He’s following through on exactly what he promised he would do if he lost the election and if the GOP voted against him any member of the GOP he said he would destroy the Republican party he also made a statement that the Republican party was so dumb that they would do anything he said he stated facts because the Republican party picked greed over the American people even down to the last bill that was just passed ! VOTE them out Lock him up!

    How about don’t give any of the parasites money, it’s not like they care about anyone.

    • Parasites don’t mind donating because they ripped-off that money to begin with. They’re simply trying to “keep it going” and to live off the host.

    • You can ALWAYS count on Republicans NEVER doing anything for anyone, except their criminal corporate masters.

    • Lord Mitchell | March 12, 2021 at 10:48 PM | Reply

      That’s not true. You forgot themselves, the donors, and the money. And a set at the table for power.

    Make Trump and the RNC poor. Give them nothing. Because they give us nothing.

      I can’t agree with that.They read, and some are educated. But the real problem is hatred.they used a old tool to start a party. Light against dark. Now how many times we’ve seen this. As Christ, has said. It’s nothing new under the sun.

    He’s broke, he can’t thieve from the taxpayer any more, so he’s looking round to see whose money he can lose next.

    • He’s supposed to receive an ample pension for his government service.
      Perhaps Ivanka and Jared qualify for one, too. They spent four years in government service, right?

    • Isn’t it why he is asking for his followers’ money now, when the stimulus package is going to pass and the money sent out? Still taxpayers’ money 💴, right?

    • @g0679 Not so sure about that, now he’s begging for money to pay for their “consulting” fees.

      Zionist kushner neo con no republican for Americans

    • Lord Mitchell | March 12, 2021 at 11:38 PM | Reply

      Broke, what’s you idea of broke. Less see. Money in foreign Banks. Russia backing him. Real estate unsold. China Patten and money in the bank. Now to the killer a second round of donations. Broke, who is this? Really, Stop playing. Jeff, or Bill. Naw! This must be the owner of Google wait, Facebook. This must be a Bush. Broke? I could do a lot of thing with a hundred and fifty million in donations. Do you think he spent that money form the first round of donations. No. He didn’t. All those millionaire, are not happy. It cost him only 3, million or your money to file. Lawyer fees to who the Republican party. Broke. Broke. You done bumped your head.

  17. This is called: “a way to skim money” , “having a hand in the till”.
    He was making money from the government. He lost the election, now he is making money from the party.

  18. The Save America Party… Yea that’s right folks, he wants everyone to give their money to the SAP

  19. History will not be kind to the current Republicans. They are fools.

  20. In other words…”I need the money to pay for all of my legal fees.”

    • Also pay off his $400 million loans that will come due in 2023. Trump will not be able to pay the fines and penalty and interest from the tax fraud and tax evasion now that the SDNY has his taxes. If you have not seen how the IRS collects on taxes owed it’s not pretty. They go back to the year you didn’t pay, then add penalty, interest and the amount you owed. They compound it daily, so they add more penalty and interest the next day, and the next, and multiply that by 356 days in a year. If Trump did NOT pay taxes in 10 out of 15 years, and only paid $750 in 2016 and 2017, that will be a LOT OF PENALTY AND INTEREST ON TAXED HE OWES!
