It's unfathomable how people can get ripped off - know it - but still worship the con man who stiffed them.
That's the case with Trump who fleeced his followers out of millions of dollars they never intended to donate.
The scam was simple. Trump's campaign ran a fundraiser and slipped a poisoned pill into the mix. In print barely legible was a disclaimer that the donations would be ongoing.
No one and done.
Retired donors on a fixed income were shocked to see what they thought was a one-time donation bloom into a weekly suctioning of their bank accounts.
Caught with his tiny hands in the cookie jar Trump was forced to issue 530,000 refunds worth $64 million to online donors.
The thing that really astounded me was some of the responses from donor victims were:
**"Who cares, he needed the money?"
**"There's nothing that will make me mad at Trump."
**Trump is a gift from God."
And so on.
I've read a lot about cults in America, but having a cult leader for president is a first.
