In this clip, Rachel Maddow takes on the Republican National Committee for their use of Ted Cruz-esque fake fundraising scams, bullying their old and feeble-minded voting base into donating them money by way of fake mailers that make vague threats about “delinquent bills” and “past due” forms masquerading as bills and other such cheap and petty scams.
It just goes to show how little the Republican Party respects their loyal voters and how cruel and exploitative the Republican establishment truly is. Not only do they consistently wreck the economies and livelihoods of the people they ostensibly represent, they don’t even have the stones to call them and ask for money directly – they’re reduced to shallow schemie tricks more appropriate for a junkie than a political party.
