Donald Trump sent out cease-and-desist letters to the three largest fundraising entities for the Republican Party, the RNC, NRCC and NRSC, for using his name and likeness on fundraising emails and merchandise.
What a sad state of affairs that the Trump name which is synonymous with racism, fascism, misogyny, and homophobia is effective in eliciting funds for the GOP.
It’s disturbing that his likeness (orange complexion, mouth that resembles a sphincter and raccoon eyes) is an effective advertising image.
This is a devastating indictment on the Republicans who respond in a positive way to the name and image of the disgraced and diminished twice-impeached former president.
Trump is apoplectic that his name is being used by Republican fundraising organization to help Republicans who voted to impeach him. Trump cares more about exacting revenge on the Republicans who voted to impeach him, than he does about helping the GOP win elections.
The RNC flat-out rejected Trump’s cease-and-desist demand, arguing that it “has every right to public figures as it engages in core, First Amendment-protected political speech.”
The RNC had no choice but to reject Trump’s demand, the GOP is the party of Trump, and there is no way that they can effectively raise funds without invoking the name of their messiah.
Why can’t the Republicans see that their embrace of the narcissistic, racist, and downright evil Trump will doom them to a minor party status.
