Whilst the Flying Monkey Brigade of the media wrote off Trump last week, Hillary's campaign manager, Robby Mook, was writing about how Trump had casually raised almost as much money as the Mook Money Machine in July.
In an internal memo, first obtained by POLITICO, that will be circulated to high-level donors on Monday morning, campaign manager Robby Mook specifically writes that the Republican nominee’s July haul overshot the campaign’s expectations, necessitating a new wave of action.
“Donald Trump also had his best fundraising month of the campaign, raising $80 million,” explains Mook in the roughly 750-word missive — titled “Wake Up Call” — after trumpeting Clinton’s own $90 million haul between the campaign and other Democratic committees. “This was far more than anyone expected — and should be a wake-up call to all Hillary supporters. We must redouble our efforts in the coming weeks."
Clinton has had a robust fundraising operation going since she launched her campaign in April 2015, allowing her to build up a cash stockpile of $58 million heading into August and funding campaign ads across the country that Trump has been unable or unwilling to match — that's in addition to the big-money efforts from her supportive super PACs. But Trump’s recent cash strength after months of not lifting a finger to raise money has given party leaders pause, particularly since — as Mook notes — Clinton’s cash pace is behind that of President Barack Obama four years ago.Now it may simply be a scam artist trying to shock his marks into giving more money to this billion-dollar enterprise. There are more than 800 mouths to feed on the paid staff.
Still, it is interesting that Hillary, Kaine, Bill and Joe Biden are making 80 fund-raising stops this month alone. There's Trump holding a rally daily before thousands of people while these four leeches are criss-crossing the country in search of cold cash. From the story:
In just the next week, Hillary Clinton will hold two events in Florida, one in Illinois, one in Pennsylvania, and one in Connecticut. Bill Clinton will have one in Colorado, one in Utah and two in California. Kaine will hit three in Texas, one each in Louisiana and New Hampshire, and two in Rhode Island.Maybe it is force of habit. These panhandlers never seem to not have their hands out. Fitting right in is Kaine who pocketed more than $160,000 in legal bribes as lieutenant governor and governor of Virginia.
I wonder what the House of Saud does when Hillary loses? Saudi Arabia fronted her campaign $25 million laundered through the Clinton Foundation.
