Lincoln Project ‘Sucker’ ad baits Donald Trump’s MAGA money marks

Trump sucker
'It was the biggest scam in political history.'

In a very limited cable news ad buy, the political provocateurs of the Lincoln Project are again taking aim at Donald Trump and all the “suckers” that fund him. And Trump is threatening to sue in response.

A new spot — geo-targeted to the former President’s summer home in Bedminster, New Jersey — reprises a familiar argument from the Lincoln Project: that Trump’s promulgation of the “Big Lie” was his ultimate grift from his cadre of credulous supporters, a capstone to a half-century of similar exploitations of gullible marks.

“Donald Trump knows he lost the election, but he pushed the ‘Big Lie’ for the last two years to keep the money flowing for him and his grifter family,” said Reed Galen, co-founder of the Lincoln Project, in a media release accompanying the ad.

“He spun his supporters into a frenzy with total disregard for what it means for the nation. Now, Trump’s supporters are threatening violence and trying to subvert our free and fair elections while he keeps raising money and ‘living large.’ Americans need to stand up and take on Trump and his ultra-MAGA supporters before it is too late,” Galen added.

The spot features a female narrator “delivering some bad news” to “MAGA.”

“Trump told you the election was stolen to rip you off, to sucker you, to take your hard-earned money and shovel it into his pockets,” the narrator intones.

“It was the biggest scam in political history. Every dollar you sent him went to prop up his shaky business empire and lavish lifestyle going. It was a sucker’s game all along.”

Trump offered a damning response on his Truth Social platform, blasting the “Perverts and Lowlifes” of the Lincoln Project and threatening to sue them and Fox News for running the ad.

    The working and unemployed MAGA clowns, white supremacist and racist who financially voted for and supported this twice impeached, miserable lying birther fraud grifter because “he spoke to them” …. are willing participants in Trump’s scam. Trump’s final grift after he lost the 2020 election allowed him to pocket $250,000,000 dollars ….. all unrelated to any campaign. MAGA clowns should think of it as a Trumpism slush fund.

    Send him your money you idiots!! We must save America and “Stop the Steal.” Translation: “Send me money so that I can try to steal elections and put myself and my billionaire buddies in charge of all you idiots. I swear to God your grandchildren will have a pot to piss in if I’m made plutocratic, right wing least until I croak from a KFC heart attack.”

        Just continued hate, continued meaningless dribble from cons, aliases and towel boys for Lincoln predator organizations.

        Only FP would give a spat for Lincoln. Shameful, as it does for these jackals above.

        Charlie’s ignorance on not knowing what happened to Lincoln with it’s fake KKK effort, shows his total fake in Identity. Such morons!

      What you’ve just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

    Those Trumptards will follow him off the face of their flat earth, writing checks all the way. I think sucker is the most appropriate word to use in describing his band of traitorous fools. What a waste of flesh
