Trump asks his supporters for money constantly despite being "INCREDIBLY FABULOUSLY RICH!". That's not even getting into recent allegations he's been diverting cash from his campaign to pay for his legal fees(which is probably illegal).Sooooo.... Not going to comment on how a billionaire raised this money instead of using his own? Or how "Democrats desperate for votes, spend millions of dollars to get criminals off the hook in bid for more." Is pretty bad optics?
Fuck, he bilked millions out of the military(after depriving thousands of a paycheck for a month out of spite) to pay for his stupid wall rather then pony up his own money.
And do we want to talk about the optics of Trump helping his buddies(Roger Stone, for example) avoid jail time? Pardoning people who destroyed federal property(Ammon Bundy and his ilk)?
Or it okay when Trump does it?
That's the fun part of Whataboutism. It goes both ways.
