$50 million vs. $19,000

According to Wall St. Journal, hedge fund managers (the Clinton’s son-in-law is one, I believe) have contributed almost $50 million to Clinton’s campaign, but only $19,000 to Trump. Could be perfectly innocent reasons for this—we always knew Clinton would be the candidate (coat tails, it’s her turn, etc.) And now we know the DNC rigged the primaries against Bernie. Oh, and did you see his new sports car after he endorsed Hillary? So they’ve had more time to flood her campaign with wish lists for regulations and special favors. They haven’t been that sure about who the Republicans would choose until the close of the primaries. Also, since Trump isn’t a politician, they don’t know if he’ll play footsy with the big money interests (he’s not big money, despite his wealth). But it could mean they know who can be bought because they’ve done it before.

The editors of National Review:  "She is an opportunist without anything resembling a conviction with the exception of her unwavering commitment to abortion, a “public servant” who along with her husband grew vastly wealthy exploiting her political connections and renting access to everybody from Goldman Sachs to Vladimir Putin, a petty, grasping, vindictive, meretricious time-server whose incompetence and dishonesty have been proved everywhere from Little Rock to Benghazi."
