Trump PAC formed to push debunked voter fraud claims paid $60K to Melania Trump's fashion designer

The payments to Hervé Pierre Braillard offer a window into the many ways Trump, who is not a candidate for office, is allowed to use his PAC money.

Key Points
-- Save America paid Hervé Pierre Braillard $60,000, according to FEC records.
-- Experts said the payments are allowed through a loophole that the FEC won't close.
-- The Jan. 6 committee has scrutinized the use of Save America to push debunked voter fraud claims.

The fund affiliated with former President Donald Trump’s efforts to overturn the 2020 election paid $60,000 to a fashion designer known for styling Melania Trump’s wardrobe when the couple was in the White House.

The Save America political action committee distributed the money to Hervé Pierre Braillard in four payments starting April 7 and going through June 24, according to records filed with the Federal Elections Commission. The committee reported that these payments were all for “strategy consulting.” It’s not clear what the money specifically paid for.

So, according to USA Today, $60,000 in donations, including those from Trump's impoverished, hopeful supporters, were used to pay for his wife's high fashion.

20. I know, all the expensive couture and she looks like cr*p.

All the obvious Trump women plastic surgery makes them look top heavy, which doesn't showcase designer clothing very well. All you see are boobs.

And the facial surgery makes them all look like stepford wives.

of some of the mini mansions in her town and declare “Those people have too much taste.”

5. Pretty much as I expected - every bit of their living expenses will be billed to "fighting fraud"

until at least 2025. Or TFG is thrown in jail or has to flee the country. It wouldn't surprise me if Ivana's funeral gets paid for with the "fighting fraud" money, or if TFG starts paying rent at Mar-a-Lago to himself using the PAC money.

8. I'm willing to bet that $60,00 was on the books to the fashion designer, but it took a u-turn back

to tfg with Melanie (sic) getting something from a store.

According to her personal secretary, the lady who wrote the book about malaria, she never paid any of her clothing designers.

17. When you consider that she was a model, is quite tall and slender, this is not flattering

In fact, my guess is that it would look terrible on almost everyone other than YOUNG, slim women and even then it is pretty boring.

That is all...

18. The sad pathetic part is that even if those supporters know that.....they will rationalize it

First they will say it is "fake news".

But even if they do actually believe it, they will shrug their shoulders. One reason is they will say it is indirectly supporting the chosen one by supporting his wife. That he can spend it however he chooses because they know he is so wise and smart. And if helping his poor wife with her own needs will help the Royal Family as a whole, then its money well given.


And if they are a bit disappointed with this news, they will rationalize it with the last resort card they always play.....The Democrats do things like this too, only way way worse! Something something Biden something Hunter's laptop something.

21. And his fans wouldn't have it any other way.

They're cut more checks when that money is squandered.

Like that quandary "Why does a billionaire genius need working people to send him money?"
