"Don't-Vote-for-Candidates-That-Take-Big-Money-from-Banks" McKay's Political Contributions

..or to Weirdo Billionaire's"

Strange words indeed considering McKay gave:

$25,000 to the Republican National Committee in 2014
And the RNC's largest Donors included the Koch Brothers, Goldman Sachs, Amway and Charles Schwab

and

$35,800 to Mitt Romney in 2012
and Romney's largest Donors included the Koch Bothers, Goldman Sach's, Bank of America, Morgan Stanley, JP Morgan, Wells Fargo, Credit Suisse

On the other hand, McKay does have a movie to promote and the Oscar's give him free ad space. So there's that.

4. IKR?



Not the ideal spokesman for a progressive candidate. Thank goodness he isn't establishment because that would really hurt his credibility.

3. Is he a big bank? Didn't think so.

 

He probably gave to the DNC as well, since the corruption is on both sides. Does that discount what he said?

5. Actually, he did not

..although he has given comparably miniscule, token amounts to Dem candidates, almost all of whom have also had banking donors. But not the Koch Bros. So, he has very consistently done precisely what he is telling others not to do. And to be clear, he said not to vote for candidates who take money from big banks or billionaire weirdos. Maybe contributing thousands to their campaigns is different?

6. Guess that makes it ok then and we should just accept Hillary

 

As well as her statements that the millions given to her were not really bribes and don't affect her judgement.
