Republican Mega-Donor Hates Trump So Much He’s Now A Democrat


WE HAVE A REPUBLICAN DONOR
WHO HAS FINALLY HAD ENOUGH. WOW. JUST WHEN YOU THOUGHT IT WASN’T
POSSIBLE. AND I DON’T MEAN ENOUGH WITH THE TAX CUTS THAT
ARE FILLING UP HIS POCKETS WHERE HE’S LIKE ALRIGHT GUYS, I’M
FULL, I REALLY APPRECIATE IT, I CAN’T HANDLE ANY MORE TAX CUTS
— HE IS SAYING THAT IN SOME WAY, BUT NOT IN THAT WAY, HE’S
SAYING WHAT IN THE WORLD DID YOU DO THIS FOR? FASCINATING, AND HE’S NOT A
LITTLE DONOR, HE’S A BIG DONOR. LET ME TELL YOU ALL ABOUT IT –>>>>SO NOT ONLY IS HE NOT GIVING
TO REPUBLICANS ANYMORE, HE’S GOING TO GO GIVE TO DEMOCRATS TO
TRY TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE. HIS NAME IS SETH KLARMAN, CEO OF
BAUPOST GROUP, THIS IS ORIGINALLY REPORTED BY THE
BOSTON GLOBE, SOMETIMES HE’S APPARENTLY KNOWN AS THE ORACLE
OF BOSTON, LET’S HOPE THE ORACLE KNOWS WHAT HE’S DOING IN THIS
CASE. SO WHY? LET’S GO TO HIS OWN QUOTE, HE SAID –>>>>STRONG WORDS, BUT ABOUT TO
GET STRONGER, APPARENTLY NOT A FAN OF TRUMP, HE SAYS THAT TRUMP
WAS, QUOTE –>>>>BY THE WAY, IF YOU’RE NOT
BLIND, DUMB, AND DEAF, AND I’M POSITIVE THEY COULD ALSO FIGURE
IT OUT, IT’S SUPER OBVIOUS HOW UNQUALIFIED DONALD TRUMP IS. HOW
UNINTELLIGENT HE IS, HOW UNETHICAL, WE COULD GO DOWN THE
LIST, BUT UNQUALIFIED CERTAINLY. WITH NO APPARENT MOTIVATION OR
INCENTIVE TO LEARN. HE REFUSED TO GET BRIEFINGS, THE LIST GOES
ON AND ON. AND YET MOST OF THE REPUBLICANS HAVE DECIDED, EH,
SPEAKING OF BLIND, DEAF, AND DUMB, I WILL LOOK AWAY, I WILL
CHOOSE NOT TO SEE IT. SETH KLARMAN SAYS I HAVE EYES AND
EARS AND IT’S OBVIOUS. HE GOES FURTHER, HE SAYS THAT HE MIGHT
— TRUMP MIGHT BE A THREAT TO DEMOCRACY. I THINK HE IS, I
DON’T THINK HE BELIEVES IN THE CONCEPT OF DEMOCRACY. NOW, OF COURSE THIS DOES TOUCH
HIS ECONOMIC INTEREST LITTLE AS WELL, LET’S KEEP IT
REAL –>>>>SO YOU CAN HAVE YOUR OWN
OPINIONS ABOUT TRADE AND THOSE PROPOSALS OF TRUMP, HE’S
OBVIOUSLY NOT A FAN. BUT NOW TO THE SIZE OF HIS DONATIONS –>>>>SO THAT’S NO JOKE. $7 MILLION
TO FIGHT AGAINST OBAMA, NOW TURNING AROUND AND GIVING IN
THOSE 78 CONGRESSIONAL ELECTIONS, ALL TO
DEMOCRATS –>>>>NOW, BACK TO THE TAX CUTS, A
REALLY INTERESTING OPINION THERE. FIRST OF ALL HE SAYS
SOMETHING THAT AGAIN IS VERY OBVIOUS –>>>>AND IN FACT THEY TOLD US IT
WOULD ONLY BE $1.1 TRILLION THEY WERE ADDING TO THE DEFICIT,
WHICH IS ALREADY A HILARIOUS STATEMENT, FROM THE GUYS WHO
SAID DEFICITS WERE TERRIBLE AND UNACCEPTABLE, IT’S ONLY A $1.1
TRILLION HOLE IN THE BUDGET. BUT IT TURNS OUT OF COURSE AS WE
FOUND OUT LAST WEEK, TOTALLY UNSURPRISINGLY TO ANYONE PAYING
ATTENTION, IT’S ACTUALLY GOING TO BE AT A MINIMUM $1.9 TRILLION
THEY ARE ADDING TO THE DEFICIT. SO THAT PART IS CLEAR, BUT
KLARMAN GOES ON TO SAY –>>>>WELL, FOR THAT YOU DO HAVE TO
GIVE HIM CREDIT. FOR BEING ABLE TO SAY THESE TAX CUTS ARE
TOTALLY UNNECESSARY TO WEALTHY INDIVIDUALS SUCH AS HIMSELF, AND
IN FACT THEY WILL DO DAMAGE TO THE ECONOMY, WHICH DOES DAMAGE
TO ALL OF US. SO IT IS A GOOD DAY IN AMERICA, AND FOR A GUY
WHO SPENT MILLIONS OF DOLLARS FIGHTING OBAMA TO TURN AROUND
AND SAY, I MEAN, IF YOU THOUGHT OBAMA WAS BAD, TRUMP IS AN
ABSOLUTE DISASTER, SHOWS YOU SOME INDICATION THAT SOME PEOPLE
HAVE WOKEN UP AND REALIZED THE HORRIBLE SITUATION THAT TRUMP
HAS PUT US IN. BUT HIS COMMENTS ABOUT TAXES ARE WHAT I
APPRECIATE THE MOST. THAT IS TRUE, AND IT’S GREAT TO SEE A
REPUBLICAN DONOR ADMIT THAT.

  1. Come on! The shit Trump is doing, Reagan and Bush did. 40 years later of republican crap, the man finally wake up and people call this guy "oracle"?
    This must be a joke.

  2. So he's going to support establishment Democrats to prevent the Progressives from winning elections. That's all.

  3. And Paul Ryan dodges the bullet by hiding. So be it. Heroes die one death, cowards die a million deaths. Paul Ryan is a coward. So be it. He will have to live with that.

  4. How about don't give anything to any party and donate to an actual worthy cause. Folks, the point is to get money "out" of politics. But nice gesture?…….

  5. He has always been a Demorat,  No one with any Brains would say he isn"t qualified.  The money he donated, was to elect Rhinos.

  6. No matter how long it took, it's better late than never from a member of the one percenters to convert and "see the light," so to speak. Just keep an eye out.

  7. Everything is exactly as I predicted, Trump and the Republicans are on suicide watch. Lol! What a terrible first year.

  8. Erh..? All we need now is some homosexual declaring himself straight "because he is done with DJT" and what I mean by saying this is, how low will the US media go to milk a story that is yet to unfold? (because, FBI evidence on Cohone is not likely to come out anytime soon).

  9. they seen Cenk make the jump from Republican to Democrat and get rich off the dumb so called progressives they figure they can do the same.

  10. The dem will most likely take back the house or senate in what looks to be a rout come November & Orange baby-man Trump;s agenda will come to a grinding halt.

  11. This means nothing. He's still conservative, and now donating to Ds just shows the Ds are conservative enough for his taste… says how horrible the Ds are, really.

  12. Traitor Trump will die in his shit smeared cage at Gitmo while he BEGS the soldiers to PISS on him while speaking Russian.

  13. How stupid are you. ……….. You do not, never have and never will live in a Democracy while you have your current political and economic system, however Trump is definitely making things dangerously worse.

  14. I cheated with a chick from the Club Friday night! How much Micheal Cohen will charge me to get rid of this crap! Art of the Deal,Making America Great Again for Organized Crime!,

  15. The new strategy of Putin's trolls is now to promote the idea that there's no difference between republicans and democrats, so to reduce democrat voter turnout and/or increase spoiler effect.

  16. He know the Republicans is going to lose no matter how much money he give them. Might as well give it to the Dems so he can say hey I helped you guys, now I need a small favor.

  17. Don’t get too excited because the Dems are a sleazy party too. The founding fathers were concerned about the dangers of a 2 party system.

  18. At what point do you make the average American so poor that they can't even buy what your product !!! It doesn't make sense 😣😕😒

  19. The qualifications for POTUS is being born in the U.S., having no criminal convictions and being a certain age. Trump is qualified. Maybe the qualifications should be adjusted.

  20. Changing Parties doesn't mean he's changed his policies. It doesn't matter that he changed party affiliation. Send him back. He's only going to support corporate dems.

  21. Obama put our country in debt more than all the rest of the presidents put together so don't go blaming the shit on the Republicans.

  22. I thought they were against money in politics, because he jumped ship tyt is praising him,tyt has become just another divison of msnbc.

  23. That position by the republican donor is no surprise, this is what happen after the first Bush, the democrats are elected (Bill) economy improve but the taxes are to high and too much regulations so elect (Bush)during Bush cut taxes, increase defense spending reduce regulation (erase all surplus) economic depression sets We need stronger regulations so big cooperation are held accountable so elect a democrat( Obama) economy recovers but taxes are too high and health insurance for everyone adds to the deficit and to much government regulations. Depending on how soon the pain of this government kicks in the new president might be a democrat or a democrat house/senate

  24. It's about damn time a Republican stands up and admits what a huge effing mistake they made to support Trump. It's sad that this man couldn't see the train wreck prior to the train wreck. Given the fact that Trump made himself very clear while campaigning the type of man he is and type of leader he would be…(more like lack leadership) should have clued him in. It was painfully obvious that Trump would be a DISASTER for the country and the world. Nevertheless, their narrow minded and bigoted thinking kept them frozen in their own selfish agendas which brings us to where we are today.
    Despite all of the above, KUDOS for OWNING YOUR SHIT regarding the Fucktard in the oval office who will NEVER be worthy of being called…

  25. This is a bad sign. He will clearly be funding the corporate democrats against the Justice Democrats. I sense a bloody civil war on the horizon about to ensue within the democratic party. Popcorn is ready.

  26. I spoke with a couple GOP phone bank managers last week… accidental meeting of opposing views… and they said repeatedly that Trump is "highly intelligent". I don't think Republicans see it the way you think, Cenk. They "should" — but they just don't.

  27. I was a Republican for 32 years until this past election, now I am a Democrat. Never thought that would happen, until Trump. lol

  28. So, our political system is still held hostage to the whims of a few rich donors. Either way they throw their cash around it's bad for our system.

  29. Great…now ANOTHER Oligarch will have MORE Democratic Politicians in HIS BACK POCKET.
    As Nina Turner says, "Any Blue, will not do."

  30. About time. I've been wondering why so many of these big time CEOs and donors would be so in favor of tax cuts. Sure in short term they would benefit, but when it is obvious that the economy as a whole will tank to their own long term detriment, what kind of business sense is there in that?

  31. Hmmm, but Chump's supporters think it's just libberals😩. No Chump is bad for everyone. He a threat to the country.

  32. The success of Trump is showing how weak corrupt and inefficient previous Presidents have been. He is working for free and uniqeuly has received NK respect not given to his predecessors. His patriotism causes his businesses to lose money while Obama and others ransacked the treasury. So why hate the guy.

  33. Americans apathy towards Congressional elections is a threat to US Democracy. Relying on Congrress Republicans to check and balance a Republican President is ridiculously stupid.

  34. I have to say I'd be more impressed if he pulled a Warren Buffet and Bill Gates and donated to social causes. Supporting politicians often leads to buying politicians.

  35. Hey TYT, why is no one in the media asking the one question that’s just begging to be asked: Why does Hannity need a “fixer” and what did he need fixed so badly that he didn’t want to be named as a client in court?

    Sorry. That’s two questions.

  36. I think a trump is a lizard person from outer space and he uses Fox News to turn other people into lizard people it's the only rational explanation for this shift into the Twilight Zone….

  37. hahaha What a joke
    Donald Trump was a Democrat, he funded the Democrats from the Clinton's the Bush's and Obama etc
    It doesn't matter anyway both Parties have the exact same agenda, sh^%^% on America
    and do the bidding of the Jew World Order
    Bush says Trump was a Democrat longer than a Republican 'in the last decade'

  38. You Said he jumped ship? I think he needs To jump the border! Maybe jump off the earth! Who cares! Vote for that Kevin De Leon, maybe he and all the dems can move To another country because it's plain To see they all hate America.

  39. He tried to buy the Conservative party, but their price was too steep. So now he's trying to buy the Democratic party.

  40. someone with heaps of money gives a shit about the country as a whole? doesn't see it as one big business opportunity? i didn't think such people existed! if he's legitimately donating to those who look like they're going to make a positive impact, that is really great 😀

  41. DEMS ARE SELLING THEIR PARTY TO THE HIGHEST DONOR!!!! THEY'RE BANKRUPT SO THEY'RE BREAKING DEALS!!! If this guy is joining the dems, and CIA are running as 25% of democratic candidates, I'm jumping in as a republican. The Left is Dead!

  42. You should think about splitting the power of the president, to a president and prime. So if one is an complete idiot, the other one could stop him with a veto, from doing stupid shit.

  43. The man used millions to fight Obama,probably just because he was a black man,now he has to fight a white man who actually became President because of his racist and divisive views Trump is actually dangerous man even tough he is white.

  44. Do all the short-sighted liberals in the comments saying they don't want him: political ads don't pay for themselves, and even partially-bribed Democrats pass infinitely more benevolent legislation than Republicans. Stay smart.

  45. Pressed DISLIKE on this video. Reasonable commentary, but completely failed to mention the elephant in the room – Should 78 democrats have sold themselves so easily to this billionaire donor? Cenk, you should know better ! (And know your audience better!)

  46. Great job Seth I know you can do this this is awesome people are realizing and seeing what's going on and seeing the truth and now people are taking steps Amen to that

  47. Yeah he’ll support the blue dog democrats you know the conservatives. I think these rich elites do this to destroy the party. I thought we wanted money out of our politics?

  48. He hates TRUMP ! Nothing more needs to be said ! The old jerk's do it again ! This show is not just FAKE NEWS , it's SHIT NEWS ! Keep on spewing !

  49. The President should be committed for the following

    To respect the office and the institutions of the executive branch
    To have the highest ethical standards possible
    To respect the environment
    To bring together Civil Rights and Human Rights

    I'm sure trump is not qualified for the above

  50. I don't find myself eager to believe this guy would have made such a switch were the Democrats not offering him a reason to that is in his own personal (and not societal) interest. I'm biased to think that you don't just fork out 7 million dollars supporting Republicans for eight years because you're a pure idealist with nothing to gain; you do it because you want something. Whatever that something is, he's apparently no longer convinced he couldn't get it from the liberal party.

    I'd love it if someone investigated his relationships with democratic party members.

  51. Look I have to be honest but Bernie Sanders jumps to the republican side when it is something that insterst his platform and jump on the democrats side if it's something he wants on his platform, that is why he's a independent. Weather you are taking money from voters or corporations, you are still taking money
    Those donors are voters too and looking out for their best interest as well. I think democrats have learned and their feet is going to be tested like it never did before. Or they're going to pay at the ballot box again because democrats want get out in record numbers. So if I was them I would not take us for granted. Now they are being given another chance, so they better show some appreciation.

  52. Wake up and smell the coffee Trumptards, when a big GOP donor says the tax cuts to the wealthy were unnecessary, and then gives his tax cut to the Democrats and adds that it will add 1.9 Trillion to the deficit, admit it .. you got conned again !

  53. Seth is peeved that Trump has rumbled his offshore Shell Companies and he now has to pay taxes and contribute to American workers public services.
