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.

He is trying to split the Republican vote so as to re-elect The Won.
Upset about losing revenue, too bad he hadn’t figured that out sooner...
Donald Trump is a businessman. You have to “grease” the local polititicans to get your permits passed to build. Nothing out of the ordinary here. This is a non-issue.
Mrs. Submareener and I have been reading some of Donald Trumps books. “Think BIG and Kick Ass in Business and Life” is a good one to start with. It is on Kindle. I think everyone who had “no intention of voting for Trump”, should read this book. He wrote it with Bill Zanker, who started and runs “The Learning Annex”. Note: when Trump writes a book with someone, he actually gives them credit. After you read this book, you will better understand what his “game” is. Donald Trump may just be the exact person that America needs at this time in history.
Agree. If you are doing business in NYC or Chicago, there aren’t any Republicans to donate to.
Even if he donated to adolf hitler, look what he is doing now. None of our GOP altar boys ever dared to mention the problems with our president’s past. He’s not running for pres yet, but he’s trying to get rid of usurper obama; let’s not stop him, please.
Are you seriously claiming that the Donald had to donate to Kerry to get local permits?
How about his $50,000 donation to Rahm for Chicago mayor?
That spin don't hunt. Trump is a NE liberal at heart. Not a conservative.
I agree, Trump knows how to work with his enemies to get what he wants, it’s that whole “Keep your friends close, but your enemies even closer” thing. Being an ideological purist is all well and good, but you need somebody who knows how to play the game.
So, Harry Reid getting re-elected another non-issue too?
He is the darling of the Tea Party? Huh?
It’s call the “schmeer.”
Part of the cost of doing business.
Well, I'm sold.
Then why has he made NO contributions to conservatives? McCain is about as far right as anyone Trump has contributed to and McCain is no conservative.
I agree. The one thing this buffoon has done well is put obama on the hot seat over his “BC”. Has McCain apologized for this yet?
OK, maybe he’s not really a good guy. But right now, he’s showing the good guys (actually good girl: Palin), how they (she) should be relentlessly attacking the Marxists.
Ideological purist? Cut me a break. Trump is pro-choice, pro-gun control and has come out in favor of nationalized health care. Just for starters
Whenever I see someone raise the label of ideological purity to slam critics, it is usually in defense of a candidate who is nowhere near being conservative. We saw it with Rudy and we saw it with Mitt. And now we are seeing it with Trump - and for the exact same reason.
Could be. Give that man a cigar!
Every person named there makes me sick.
Top of the list is either Clinton or Schumer.
I'll have to go with 'Mr. Treason', BJ Clinton.
| Countdown until Obama leaves Office: 643 days as of April 17, 2011.
I think what happened in 2008 was a coup. He and his Marxists and Maoists and all the other scum he has collected around him are foreign to everything this country stands for. Are we're headed for another sickening 4 years under this narcissistic fraud?
Zer0 knows what he is doing, and he is having a great time doing it. The game played by the Marxists is war where the end justifies the means. No matter how it's dressed up, his budget is an assault on America's freedom. We know that's his intent.
Winning rule in 2012: Direct political attack on Obama!
Ladies and gentlemen, Obama is America's first communist president.
We The People are awake. We will no longer be misled by office-holding criminals. We will not elect a one-trick circus-clown president or RINOs again to office in 2012.
