Donald Trump Complains Voters Aren’t Giving Him Credit for Spending His Own Money

When loser billionaires cry

In his stump speeches, one of Donald Trump’s repeated refrains is that if he can’t win, “it isn’t worth it.” Well, last night in Iowa he didn’t win; in fact, you might say he got schlonged by Ted Cruz.

This led to an uncharacteristic overnight silence on Twitter, broken this morning by a series of tweets. He tried to picture his second place position as a win, because of course he did, and excused it by saying he didn’t spend any money in Iowa because he was “told” he couldn’t do well.

Then the whining started. First, complaining about the media (because he knows this plays well with the right wing base). They didn’t cover his “long shot great finish” fairly.

Then, amazingly, he bashed “the voters,” complaining they don’t give him any credit for funding his own campaign, and saying he’ll keep doing it even though it’s not worth it. Aw, the poor persecuted multi-billionaire bigot.

Why, those ungrateful low-class wretches.

By the way, Trump’s claim that he’s “self-funding” his campaign? It’s just one more lie.

Donald Trump often says that he does not get enough credit for self-funding his presidential campaign. But as his recent financial disclosure reveals, he is not funding most of it.

Instead, the majority of his campaign funding comes from donors. This quarter, the campaign received 73,942 “unsolicited donations” totaling about $3.7 million, according to a release from the campaign. That accounts for most of the $5.8 million the campaign has taken in to date.
