Tea Party darling and "birther" blowhard Donald Trump hasn't always put his money where his mouth is: The Donald has splashed campaign cash on a "Who's Who" who's who of liberal pols.
Trump shot to the top of GOP presidential polls by embracing debunked conspiracies about President Obama's birthplace but he repeatedly has opened his fat checkbook for a slew of Democratic stars, a review by the Center for Responsive Politics found.
The all-time apple of Trump's eye is beleaguered Harlem Rep. Charlie Rangel, the once powerful once-powerful ex-head of the tax-writing Ways & Means Committee and a GOP bogeyman.
The casino king has pumped $24,750 into Rangel's war chest.
New York's Democratic senators also have pocketed payouts from Trump.

The only question is, "who's the dope?"
In this case, I think it's the people buying the idea that Donald Trump is presidential material.
Having a big mouth and telling obvious things even if others are gutless to tell it is not enough to me. I think there is a room for suspicion towards him.
The mighty has fallen too low if acting like Trump does is enough to dominate a political landscape in America.
Trump’s donations are a mixed bag...he gave money to Reagan in 1984 primary, for example, but gave money to Carter in 1979.He gave money to Strom Thurmond, but also gave money to Major Owens. A role as kingmaker, or influence peddler? ... magritte
Why is the Obama-loving NYDN running this hit piece on Trump? Because Trump is scoring body blows to Zero and they want it to stop.
OK, maybe hes not really a good guy. But right now, hes showing the good guys (actually good girl: Palin), how they (she) should be relentlessly attacking the Marxists.
Palin doesn’t need him to show her how to attack. In case you’ve been asleep since August 29, 2008, Palin has been attacking Obama non-stop since then.
If anything, Trump is following in Palin’s footsteps.
I wish I understood Trump’s game. Is he a stalking horse for the Kenyan and the Rats? Another Perot? Are the liberals trashing him in the press just a tactic to help build his credibility in order to split the GOP and Independents?”
Nor really hard to understand. Trump has business with Soros. He has even duped many freepers. We are screwed.
Hmmmmm... A billionaire businessman from New York surrounded by Dems. What’s he to do to ensure they keep out of his business? Well, throw them chump change to keep Charlie happy because old Charlie thinks he’s getting some big bucks out of the capitalist.
You hit the nail on the head. Trump is a business man, and....a good one at that!!! As for him fronting Obama, forget it. Trump is like the “Pearl Harbor” attack. He has awoken the sleeping giant within America. Rather than fronting for Obama, he has awoken theAmerican public and voters to the immense, dark dangers facing America. Only Palin, Bachman & Cain have done like actions. the rest of the Republican POTUS wannabees are frightened RINOs or political deadbeats with no spine or determination to throw Obama and his cronies out of office. Governor Walker of Wisconsin, has the backbone and...he has won. His actions and strength have set the public service unions back on their heels and exposed the low life power brokers they are, just like Obama is. if the rank and file union members had any brains at all, they would send their leadership down the flushing toilet and replace them with leaders that care about the rank and file, job security, continuing success working with management for growth, success and individual recognition of excellence. that is what a good labor union is, period (win/win for both management & labor). Onward, Donald!!!! Game on, Palin!!! Hats off to you, Mr. Cain & Bachmann, go et ‘em, girl!!!!
Oh? So it’s ok to sacrifice integrity for political and business expediency? That’s an admirable character trait for a President. How do you explain his donation to Harry Reid?
I challenge you to find another conservative who has consistently contributed to liberals as much as Donald has.
100% spot on. And no contribution to Tea Party candidates either.
I don’t trust greasers.
Trump needs to run as a ‘rat candidate.
Come ON people, wake up!
All of the above. Kick him to the curb and fast!
He is doing some things a true Republican should be doing but he’s
not doing it for a good reason.
Shill or stooge, who cares as long as he flushes out the Kenyan? Sarah´s gonna be the candidate anyway.
