We were all beside ourselves when those adorable little cheerleader girls were used by the Trump campaign like the new-age Hitler youth or something straight out of Kim Jong-Un’s North Korea. The ridiculous song they sang became the stuff of legend, yet they were never heard from again.
Perhaps it was the negative publicity that caused the act to fade into oblivion. There wasn’t a news organization or liberal blog anywhere on the planet that didn’t associate the youngsters with Nazis in some way. Now we’re finding out that the story gets even better. While Donald Trump parades around the country convincing the intellectually challenged that he’s a good man who pays his bills and will be the “law and order” candidate, the father who organized the group, Jeff Popick, says he’s planning to sue Trump for stiffing the girls out of verbally agreed-upon monetary compensation.
According to the Washington Post:
It started in Pensacola. When Popick first reached out to the Trump campaign about performing, he spoke with various people including former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski. His understanding from the campaign was that the Kids would make two appearances in Florida, where Popick lives. The first event didn’t come to fruition, and Popick says he asked for $2,500 in payment for the second performance, in Pensacola. The campaign made a counter-offer: How about a table where the group could pre-sell albums?
No table appeared in what was the beginning of a string of broken promises that put the group right on par with the architects, tradesmen and investors Trump has been screwing over for decades. The girls were promised yet another appearance that never materialized, and while Popick says there won’t be a “billion-dollar lawsuit,” he did tell the Post that there’s a chance that Trump is “still the best candidate…or not.”
If only everyone in America could have a personal experience with this guy we wouldn’t have to worry about him winning anything.
