Yes the real cream of our immigrant stock.
The miserable old c*nt in the bar in Southie with his blotchy face and whiskey nose, mouthing off about the "darkies" and the "wetbacks"
Your very angry.

Perhaps making something of very little. Are our memories so short we cannot remember the Koch brothers? If there had been no monied backers, it would be of more note IMO. My personal opinion is the 'hunt' for the hidden hand is a symptom of misunderstanding what got Trump elected.
Others think otherwise. I wouldnt discount the power of social media etc, particularly Facebook. This article is very interesting ( I think :D ):

https://motherboard.vice.com/en_us/article/how-our-likes-helped-trump-win

On the same day, a then little-known British company based in London sent out a press release: "We are thrilled that our revolutionary approach to data-driven communication has played such an integral part in President-elect Trump's extraordinary win," Alexander James Ashburner Nix was quoted as saying. Nix is British, 41 years old, and CEO of Cambridge Analytica.
Bannon is on the board of Cambridge Analytica & backed by Mercer

His company wasn't just integral to Trump's online campaign, but to the UK's Brexit campaign as well.
"Pretty much every message that Trump put out was data-driven," says Cambridge Analytica CEO Alexander Nix

Where do you start with Trump?

Personally, which is what matters most to him, he has been loaned money from Russian banks as has his SIL, Kushner, who is balls deep in Russian funding in Silicon Valley.

And as regards the campaign, the money was definitely punted by the same crew of bizarre plutocrats and marginal Republicans who are associated with Dick Cheney.

Links on request - ob believe me there are links. :)

Equinox ... Believe it or not I am not siding with one or the other here. However TRUMP won and is now President. Who What funded Hillary is of less interest.
I'm very interested in finding out about a certain Denis O'Brien's contribution to the Hillary campaign.

I don't believe the identity of who funded HRC is of less interest.

Hopefully the full list of funders and what they paid will be revealed in connection with HRC.
Oh FFS quit with yer petty and idiotic distraction tactics - we know who funds Hillary's campaigns, the same people that have been funding her for fecking decades. Primarily Big Finance with a smattering of pharma, media and tech firms, and this time out trying to leverage the small-contribution machine Obama built. It's an open book with no big secrets or surprises, despite the dark hints and veiled insinuations of skulduggery you WingNut nuts try to throw about to confuse the issue.

It is very interesting indeed that the Mercers seem to have contributed a lot to Trump's campaign, and that the Mercer-Bannon link goes back at least as far as Clinton Cash. It explains a lot about the sort of people that have become involved with Trump's campaign and now administration - people from the ultra-far-right that would have been anathema even in most Republican circles 2 years ago.

:confused:

But they are supposed to be anti-semitic just like Trump who seems like he will be controversially pro-Israel is also supposed to be anti-semitic.

Very unsuccessful anti-semites.

Yes .. a strange mix. Breitbart / Bannon alledgedly anti-semitic, meanwhile Ivanka converted to Judaism before she married her Jewish husband Jared Kushner, both who are right in the centre of the whitehouse with Father in law Donald ..

Oh for FFS, sidey mick still scratching his head
and acting the village mute over this.

Trump is backed and bankrolled by the most marginal freaks in the Republican Party, billionaires, Evangelicals, pro-business, pro -oil, anti-labour.
