Broke and losing, the RNC spends $1million… promoting Hannity's new book

2 min read

Ronna Romney McDaniel’s plan to combine the RNC with the Trump campaign has backfired spectacularly. The money goes where Trump wants it to go, which is why millions were spent running ads in DC because Trump was tired of seeing ads attacking him. 

In the final weeks of the election, and losing badly, the RNC spent almost 500K on Hannity’s book… in one day. This was to make it a best seller.

The Republican National Committee continues to spend hundreds of thousands of dollars for copies of the latest book by Fox News personality Sean Hannity, which was published in August These efforts have helped boost the book up bestseller lists, according to recent Federal Election Commission filings.

This week the RNC reported $492,308 in expenditures on “donor mementos” at book retailers, all of it spent on Sept. 16. Salon has confirmed that at least $159,000 of that amount went for bulk retail purchases of Hannity's book, “Live Free or Die,” which have been offered to GOP donors who gave $75 or more.

This combined with a similar amount in August. That is money flushed down the drain as a favor to Sean Hannity at the request of one DJT. 

Enriching himself and his crony friends is all that Trump cares about, and he grifted all the way to the end.

Trump has used the RNC money as his personal ATM. “You could literally have 10 monkeys with flamethrowers go after the money, and they wouldn’t have burned through it as stupidly,” as one GOP veteran strategist put it.

I just love rubbing this in the face of his idiot supporters who sent him money. You get what you deserve.
