MUST VIEW VIDEO: Trump Mocked in Kimmel “The Producers” parody with Nathan Lane and Mathew Broderick

maxresdefault (3)

To use the overused internet expression: “OMG.’ Jimmy Kimmel’s show offered a superb parody of the Broadway musical/film remake of “The Producers” with original cast members Nathan Lane and Mathew Broderick playing their original. But this time the plot in a video titled “Trumped” mocked Donald Trump. It’s like a Mad Magazine parody come to life.

This is beyond A plus. MUST VIEWING:

    I don’t like Trump, but in fairness to him he has not been out there doing a bunch of money raising from what I hear. Other candidates have raised a lot of money especially of the ” independent ” PAC variety, and I have long wondered where it all ends up. I have read that pro JEB PAC’s raised somewhere between 100-150 billion dollars. Is there any requirement for a public accounting for all of this moolah? Diversion of a tiny percentage of that kind of sum would be extremely profitable. Many of the also ran candidates generate ten, twenty million.
    The last presidential election cost each candidate more than a billion. Is there any way one can raise that much money honestly? We citizens must think of ways to change this.

      The big con: Trump’s brand is worth about three Billion according to his estimation. By doing this campaign, he is getting free publicity and his brand worth is going up. Stealing from the ignorant to give to the Trump. Robin Hood he ain’t but he gets richer, CNN, FOX and MSNBC and the rest of the media get richer, and the people get hosed.

        Agree that big money is a problem. See Larry Lessig.

        However. IT IS A MYTH that Trump is paying for this campaign out of his own pocket.

        He has LOANED the campaign money. They’re funding raising — look at his website. There’s the great big DONATE button (upper right) just like Every Other Candidate.


        “Between June 16, when he announced his candidacy from the lobby of Trump Tower, through the end of 2015, the Trump campaign spent $2.2 million patronizing Trump businesses…. A look through the disbursements of the rest of the Republican field—Cruz, Marco Rubio, Kasich and Carson—shows that Trump is the only candidate who pays businesses with his name in the title.”

        But by law, candidates cannot profit from their own campaigns.

        According to The Sunlight Foundation, after the period ending February 20, Trump will have spent $17.5 million of his own funds on his campaign — $7.7 million has come from donations.

        “When the media hands you abundant attention, you don’t need to buy advertisement spots. And when you don’t buy ad slots, your expenditures can be shockingly low. ”

        From May 1 to Dec. 15, 2015, FOX gave Trump nearly 23 hours of airtime in 119 appearances on the network.

        “By loaning his campaign money and not donating it, Trump stands to potentially recoup his investment. The interest-free loans don’t have to be repaid until at least Dec. 31, 2016, and Trump could ultimately decide to write them off. ”

        Sunlight Foundation.

      Marcus – I think you mean that Jeb’s PAC raised $100-150 million not billion. There are a lot of rich donors in this country but even they don’t have that kind of money.
      You are correct that we need to do something about the excessive amounts of money that have to be raised in order to fund a campaign. Campaign spending is out of control and may be the biggest single political issue facing this country. There is precious little difference between a big political contribution and a bribe. Trump is correct but he is the wrong candidate to carry the message.

    • I think you mean millions, not billions.

    Beautiful, fantastic, I loved it. Thanks.

    (You probably need to have seen The Producers, though, stage or film.)

    Oh my! Too funny.

      “I have to believe it will come..” It better otherwise we are all in a heap of trouble.
