Now that the billionaires have locked in their tax cuts, they've opened the purse strings and are blessing Republican politicians with their largesse. Never let it be said again that there's no quid pro quo encouraged by the Citizens United decision. Here it is writ large, after weeks of GOP politicians' whines about how if they didn't get tax reform done, their donors would punish them and leave coal in their stockings.
Not to be outdone, Fox News also got a little pre-Christmas goody in the form of an exclusive preview of the ad blitz coming to airwaves near you, courtesy of the billionaire boys.
In this ad, we have all kinds of people doing what Mike Pence, Paul Ryan and other Trump sycophants did yesterday. "Thank you, 'President Trump,' for allowing me to live and breathe on the planet!"
"Thank you, 'President Trump,' for giving those billionaires what they needed to breathe."
"Thank you, 'President Trump,' for allowing my health insurance costs to skyrocket and poor children to die because CHIP hasn't been renewed!"
Okay, I exaggerate, but watch this video for yourself. It's pure propaganda, sauced up with some diversity and a little red-headed girl thanking Trump for "letting" her say "Merry Christmas" again.
America First Policies is an opaque non-profit created to run polls, propaganda, and opinion pieces that prop up the Nazi-in-Chief. It's a motley crew of former Trump campaign sycophants, including Trump’s digital and data director Brad Parscale, Paul Manafort's indicted partner Rick Gates and two campaign advisers to Vice President Mike Pence, Nick Ayers and Marty Obst. Corey Lewandowski is the organization's chief strategist. David Bossie (formerly of Citizens United and Trump's campaign), and Katrina Pierson also play roles in the organization.
Fracking billionaire Harold Hamm recently joined the board of directors, suggesting he is among the organization's funders. Because degenerates generally hang together until they try to rip each other's throats out, it is likely some other oil and fracking boys are paying some of the sycophants' salaries as well, but I cannot say for certain because they are hiding behind the veil of white nationalism and our current nonprofit rules.
All bow down to Herr Trump and be grateful!
