    There's an ancient saying that applies to two and four legged people about not biting the hand that feeds you. Trump has not learned that. Will his supporters now attack Adelson as a loser if not worse? And as noted in that piece, Trump is becoming radioactive.

    Trump antagonizes GOP megadonor Adelson

    When President Donald Trump connected by phone last week with Republican megadonor Sheldon Adelson — perhaps the only person in the party who can cut a nine-figure check to aid his reelection — the phone call unexpectedly turned contentious.


    The 87-year-old casino mogul had reached out to Trump to talk about the coronavirus relief bill and the economy. But then Trump brought the conversation around to the campaign and confronted Adelson about why he wasn’t doing more to bolster his reelection, according to three people with direct knowledge of the call. One of the people said it was apparent the president had no idea how much Adelson, who’s donated tens of millions of dollars to pro-Trump efforts over the years, had helped him. Adelson chose not to come back at Trump.
    ...
    Now, Republican leaders are pleading to billionaires for help. Trump advisers are pining for new outside groups to form, and the White House is growing anxious to see what Adelson, who has pumped hundreds of millions of dollars into Republican super PACs over the past decade, will do.

    What destruction? lmao

    You think protests are as bad as destroying the American economy and small businesses? Your priorities are out of whack.

    I don't vote republican because I'm in the middle class.

    I guess that would all depend on how a protest is viewed. Holding a sign and a bullhorn is a protest.

    Wanton damage is not.

    Yeah.
    Like he brought back coal mining jobs.
    Like he gave you a beautiful medical insurance plan.
    Like COVID went away as he asserted in March.

    Take off the blinders.

    At this point, both right and left demonstrations sometimes have wanton damage. I condemn those on the left who do that. Will you condemn those on the right who are attacking and killing people?
