Pissing off the wrong people
Trump used his campaign war chest like an ATM. Now it's dead broke and GOP donors are furious
[Donnie, you of all people should know how dangerous it is to piss off rich people. And on the flip side: Of all the things that you should know, the dangers of pausing off the rich should be near the top. That you failed this test is perhaps the clearest evidence of your idiocy.

[Sorry. My bad. They don't view themselves as Trump's parents.
They view themselves as Trump's zoo keepers.
Come to think of it, that is a much better analogy.]
... Trump and his campaign aides burned through $1 billion like they were on a drunken Beverly Hills lifestyles-of-the-rich-and-famous bender.
[The article goes on to list some of the expenditures. Reading the list makes it clear why Trump is a failure at business.]
