    Critics belittle this Go Fund Me effort mistakenly, $16,687,219 is not an insignificant amount (“Times Up”, the fund to cover legal expenses by women claiming sexual harassment on the job raised $22,103,300), but the $16 million for a wall has been raised in just the first week, while the $22 million harassment fund took a whole year.

    The National Organization for Women in Washington DC endorsed the harassment fund and mobilized nationwide fundraising, just 21,549 people contributed. The wall fund was set up by this veteran triple amputee on his own and 274,371 individuals have contributed.

    The wall fund is raising nearly $2.4 million per day, the harassment fund averaged about $60k per day. The average wall donation is $60, wheras the average Times Up donor gave over a thousand dollars.

    These figures are significant, ten times more people think the wall should be built than believe victims of sexual harassment should have money for lawyers to bring their claims.

    The number of contributors is important, its why politicians highlight the individual contributions to their campaigns rather than their generous corporate sponsors. Does anyone know of a Go Fund me account averaging 40 thousand donors a day?

    Those words are meaningless from people who give Bill Clinton a pass and don't even know anything about what hes done.

    I am truly mystified what you find s appealing about Trump and so revolting about Clinton. What did Clinton do that you regard as worse than Trump? What about Trump do you admire?

    Clinton settled a sexual assault case for 800000 out of court so he wouldn't be labeled a sex offender go to jail

    Clinton was and preach for perjury and obstruction of Justice and lost his law license

    Trump is in nowhere near the same league

    1. Ok, but Trump has spent at least that amount paying past sexual partners to remain quiet about his extramarital affairs. How's that better than what Clinton did? I don't see the difference.
    2. In what way did Clinton perjure himself and/or obstruct justice.? Saying he did so without explaining what he did is not helpful.
    3. How is Trump nowhere near the same league as Clinton, except that he's far less intelligent than Clinton? The main difference I see between Clinton & Trump in terms of their extramarital activities, is that Clinton tried to hide it from his wife by evasion, while Trump hid it thru paying bribes. I don't see either as being morally or ethically more attractive. So, I'm at a loss how you feel Trump is superior in this regard. Please explain.

    first of all
    Trumps sexual exploits which he paid NDAs for were all consensual and legal Clinton not so much
    Clinton forced himself on women which is called sexual assault the offence Clinton paid 800,000 to keep from going to court over Trump committed adultery not even close to being equivalent
    Clinton lied under oath to congress about his affair with Lewinsky Mueller is sending people to jail for the same offence

    Clinton raped women.
    Clinton used his status as POTUS to seduce a girl barely out of her teens.
    Clinton lied to congress about his relationship with this young girl.
    Clinton tampered with a witness, by telling this girl to keep her mouth shut.
    Clinton attempted to destroy the character of this young girl.
    Trump had consensual sex with a couple of women.
    There is no comparison.

    Don't expect Democrats to understand any of that. They literally believe Clinton was impeached because he cheated on his wife by prude Republicans. They also believe the vast right wing conspiracy actively made bill Clinton constantly cheat on Hillary. If it wasn't for those evil republicans Bill Clinton would have been good.

    Uh, hate to burst your bubble pal, but Trump has settled sexual harassment accusations in court, too.

    The democrats at the time argued that perjury and obstruction of Justice do not accumulate to a high crime or Misdemeanor worthy of removal of office.

    By Democrat standards trump is safe.

    Someone with your record should not invoke the hypocrite defense. It it time to get off your knees and see the whole picture.

    source of that claim?
    and there is a major difference with harassment and assault
    example whistling at a women is harassment forcibly kissing and fondling a women is assault
    Clinton committed assault

    I hope this guy takes the money and gives it to himself. Or at a minimum charges a 20% “fee”.

    Hell, the right would just call it capitalism, or “The Trump Foundation”......bahahahahahaha
