From Frances Langum at Crooks and Liars:
News broke this morning of a twenty-five-year-old man with no ties to the Trump campaign, raising over a million bucks with the promise that you can have “Dinner with Donald.”
There’s a sucker born every minute, and apparently several thousands of minutes ago a whole lot of suckers were born who these days are going to vote for Donald Trump. And they are happy to type their credit card number into a website in order to possibly “win a dinner” with the Republican nominee.
What the 25 year-old, Ian Hawes, was actually doing was giving away donor tickets to a Trump dinner event. Anyone with the right donation could buy those tickets themselves.
