“When people criticize him for donating to Hillary Clinton/Harry Reid/Nancy Pelosi etc, he says that it’s not because he agrees with them — it’s just that he was a businessman — and he did it to get things done for his business.

Think about what he is saying…

He helped people get elected who hurt the country – only to line his own pockets.

This isn’t my accusation – this is HIS EXPLANATION.

The man is admitting to routinely putting himself above the best interests of the country to enlarge his bank account. And he’s using this as a selling point. And people are buying it.”
