Trump Lawyer Donated Max Amount to Clinton After Being Hired by Trump

We could try explaining to Trump cultists how this is a bad thing, but they’re too stupid to realize they’ve been conned.

Donald Trump’s lawyer donated to Hillary Clinton’s campaign just one month after he was hired by the Republican for the Trump University debacle, amid Mr Trump’s claims that the “Mexican” judge was “biased” against him.

Mr Trump said to Fox News’ Sean Hannity this week that it was “disgusting” that the law firm on the other side donated large sums to Ms Clinton’s team.

“The law firm gave hundreds of thousands — I think it was $900,000 or $700,000 — in speaking fees to the Clintons,” he said. “Plus, they contributed tremendous amounts of money to the campaign.”

Yet his own lawyer, Daniel Petrocelli, who is best known for winning $33.5 million in a wrongful death suit against O J Simpson, has donated to Ms Clinton and several other democrats over the last 15 years, as reported by Politico.

According to the Center for Responsive Politics, Mr Petrocelli donated $2,700, the maximum allowed per election cycle, to Ms Clinton in January 2016, one month after Mr Trump hired him.

He told the Hollywood Reporter in April that Mr Trump “didn’t hire me for my political views. He hired me for my legal skills.”

Trump hires only the best leftwingers. Just like him.

His law firm, O’Melveny & Myers, has donated close to $20,000 to Ms Clinton’s campaign.

So effectively he’s making money off Trump and donating it to Clinton. Just laughable.

    You do realize that we only have two choices now, don’t you? You do know that Hillary will appoint justices that will eviscerate the second amendment, don’t you? You understand that she is a socialist, right? You see what is happening to Venezuela under socialism, si? Why are you supporting an anti-gun socialist against a pro-gun capitalist? It makes no sense to self-destruct because you are afflicted with Trump Derangement Syndrome. What the hell are you doing?!
