Donald Trump Might Want to Delete These Tweets From October

In late October of 2015, Donald Trump said that Super PACs were a “scam” and that he had “disavowed all PACs” and is “self-funding” his campaign.

Moreover, the bloviating billionaire and reality TV actor said that “All presidential candidates should immediately disavow their Super PACs.”

Fast forward to June 2, 2016, and the news today that a new super PAC formed to support Donald Trump raised a whopping $32 million on the same day that it filed its registration papers, per a report from Newsmax on Thursday.

Here’s what Trump’s opinion was of Super PACs and about the candidates who accepted money from them, in October, in his own words — unedited — as a presidential candidate:

The question is, will Donald Trump, who is often lauded for “telling it like it is,” heed his own words and “disavow” the $32 million raised in one day for his campaign by this Super PAC?

Of course he won’t, and his sycophantic followers won’t hold him accountable for the lies and deception and hypocritical behavior.

Predicted excuses from Trump cultists:

  1.  This is the general now, okay? Mr. Trump just said that to defeat the cucks in the primary, okay? Trust me.
  2. But Hillary…
  3. Make America Great Again!
  4. All politicians lie. #Trump2016
  5. Thank you for lying to me, Mr. Trump! I love your spray tan!
  6. At least ‘Lyin’ Ted’ is out of the race. Go Trump!

Trump cultists, much like Obama’s from 2008, if not much worse, love being lied to by their cult leader. They refuse to hold “their guy” accountable for their words and then wonder why nothing changes in politics while, at the same time, insisting that their guy is going to be the change that we need.

The problem with America is not the corrupt politicians and bureaucrats who unconstitutionally rule over us — it’s the useful idiots and dupes who continue to give their vote to the first huckster that tickles their ears, no matter how unprincipled or dishonest the candidate is.

But at least he has that magic “R” next to his name, right?
