According to a new report published by USA Today, Donald Trump‘s Save America PAC shoveled out tens of thousands of dollars to pay for a “fashion consultant” for Mrs. Trump between April and June of this year alone.
Fashion professional Hervé Pierre Braillard received four payments, totaling roughly $60,000, for what was described as “strategy consulting” without any further explanation as to what that means.
When asked why donor money that was supposed to go towards the legal fight over the 2020 election that the ex-president still insists was “stolen” from him was instead used to pay for Melania’s stylist, Save America spokesperson Taylor Budowich said, “Mr. Pierre serves as a senior advisor to Save America, involved in event management and special projects.”
“Special projects”, got it!
To date, Save America has raised more than $100 million since it was registered in November 2020.
Michael Beckel of the political reform group Issue One tells USA Today, “If you are going to a political function and trying to buy a new dress or a new tuxedo, that’s typically something that the FEC would say campaign funds should not be used for.”
He added, “So it really raises questions if leadership funds are being used to pay for something like a new dress or new clothing that campaign funds could not be used for legally.”
Now, some tweets…
The constant, unchecked grifting wasn’t just some side effect of having actual criminals in the White House, it was their purpose, their goal.
I am starting to get the feeling that these Trumps are only interested in taking money from their supporters?!?!?

If there is just one minuscule of grift out there, Trump will grift. Lifelong criminal practices.

Most of these Trump PAC donations somehow end up in Trump’s personal bank accounts……

And still the Trump disciples who will never spend $60k on clothes in their lifetimes for their whole family bow down before him.

Is anyone contacting his small dollar donors and letting them know that this type of stuff is what he’s really spending their money on?
