On a GOP website seeking donations, it claims to be an "authentic website of Trump headquarters," then says, "Dear President Trump, Yes! I am proud to accept my Republican National Committee Life Membership," for the cost of "$750" for a "full membership."

Roger Sollenberger of the Daily Beast tweeted out a screen capture of a July 4th text that reads, "Your $45 payment is due. Fulfill Trump Life payment or face possible suspension," adding, "Act HERE, Friend" alongside a link.

Here's another one:

Wow, Karen is gonna tell and get you suspended!

Twitter users weighed in:

The "Payments" are supposed to be donations to the Republican National Committee. And even though the site claims to be an "authentic website of Trump headquarters," at the bottom of the page, it reads, "Not Authorized By Any Candidate Or Candidate's Committee." Republicans sound like thugs these days, but they had a good teacher with former President Donald Trump.

Payments should be for services rendered, not donations to shitty politicians. That message shows their disdain for Trump supporters. That isn't even from Trump, but they're using the twice-impeached President's name.

Can you help us out?

For nearly 20 years we have been exposing Washington lies and untangling media deceit, but now Facebook is drowning us in an ocean of right wing lies. Please give a one-time or recurring donation, or buy a year's subscription for an ad-free experience. Thank you.
