What a surprise! They make a deal on the debt ceiling and still have 4 days to sell it to their members. Which means that for the next couple of days the alt-right shitheads in the GOP House caucus can rant and rave about how the leadership is selling them all down the river and giving in to the Deep State Commies and queers to keep the government running for another couple of years.
Meanwhile, how come we haven’t heard a word about the so-called debt ‘crisis’ from the guy who claims that he’s the real leader of the GOP?

One donor, a lady from North Carolina, made 13 contributions on January 31st for a grand total — ready? — $472 bucks! Which averages out to $36 a pop, including 6 separate donations between $1 and $5 bucks. This lady must be one of those big ‘bundlers’ which the Trump campaign is banking on to replace mega donors like Miriam Adelson, Steve Schwarzman and Larry Ellison who have jumped off the Trump ship.
Meanwhile, cozying up to the big money crowd isn’t Trump’s biggest financial challenge right now because what…
