'Great Businessman' Donald Trump Is Failing To Raise Funds For His Campaign

no title

This is historically bad.

Donald Trump is the presumptive nominee, having beat out the rest of the field, but his campaign for POTUS isn't going as well as it seems…

That's because thousands of wealthy Republican campaign donors — people who have given LOTS of money to previous GOP candidates for President like Mitt Romney — are withholding their money from the controversial candidate.

For one, USA TODAY found that just 29 people who contributed to a campaign supporting Romney last election cycle — out of 1,400 total contributors — have given money to Trump this time around. That's less than 2% of previous donors reaching out to the current GOP candidate, which… YIKES!!

We already know how big Trump's money problems are during this campaign, but if he can't get Republican donors and wealthy backers to help him along the trail, he is in big trouble.

The way Trump tells it, he claims he's running a successful campaign on a shoestring budget and he'll do the same with the government, but actual campaign experts just don't see it the same way.

Charles Spies, a Republican lawyer who has long worked for political action committee to raise funds for GOP candidates, went all in on The Donald to USA TODAY about the terrible fundraising situation:

Whoa, did some use a Time-Turner?! Because this picture throws us back like a memory in a pensieve!

Emma Watson had a magical reunion with Hermione's creator and author of the Harry Potter series J.K. Rowling on Saturday!

The pair were in attendance at The Warner Bros. Harry Potter Tour in London for J.K.'s charity Lumos' fundraiser, which helps orphaned children!

Aw, what a good cause! If only Harry had been so lucky when he was dropped off on the Dursley's doorstep.

Meanwhile, Emma took a picture with her sexy, waxy version of herself, and sent it out to all of Twitter via owl tweet:

ATTN Veronica Mars fans! An incoming message straight from Kristen Bell’s mouth to your ears (and eyes):

“Marshmallows, this is your captain speaking. Buckle up cuz we’re gonna make it. We’re gonna shake it, and we’re gonna try not to break it.”

The “it” she’s referring to is OBVIOUSLY the upcoming VMars movie. The pint-size actress and new mom shared her Marshmallow gratitude for, as Rob Thomas put it, “the best fans in the world,” but there’s just one more thing she needs you all to do!

Today is the FINAL day of the month-long VMars campaign, and the team need your help breaking yet another record: the highest number of backers.

Ch-ch-check out her video (above) and see her ADORBS self get a few last words in.

Filed under: TV NewsFilm Flickers

There are only a few more days left on the Veronica Mars Kickstarter clock, but we already know this project has moved WAY faster than expected!

The campaign has now officially raised over $4.8 million thanks to its 73,000 backers, and creator Rob Thomas has already completed the first draft of the movie! But given the work still left to be done, Rob took to the Kickstarter page to update Marshmallows on how the extra money raised will be spent.

He explained that the original $2 million goal was the minimum amount they needed to get the film made, “but it was never going to let us make the exact movie we really wanted to make, or the one we know you deserve.”

He added:

The Veronica Mars Movie Is Finally Happening Thanks To Kristen Bell & Jason Dohring!! Watch Kickstarter Video HERE!

Dear Veronica Mars: we know we used to be friends. But it turns out we STILL are!!!

After six very long and lonely years, Veronica Mars is finally going (yes, GOING) to return to screens - and this time we’re going to get the ending that the show always deserved. Fans, care to take a guess??

Backed by Kristen Bell and her former (and soon to be future) co-stars Jason Dohring, Enrico Colantoni, and Ryan Hansen, the VMars team is asking for your help! Check out the video (above) to get a glimpse of what we’ve been missing all these years and how you can be part of the filmmaking process.

All they need to shoot the film? $2 million. And how are they gonna get it? From fan donations, of course! Just a minor detail and easily remedied. CLICK HERE to donate to their Kickstarter fund now and make this happen!

What’s more? If you pledge certain amounts, you’ll be rewarded with some VMars paraphernalia that include a PDF of the script, t-shirts, and a digital copy of the film upon release. Donations of $6500 or more will even get to name a character in the upcoming film!!

Fair word of warning: there may have been was some serious screaming and arm flailing upon news of the VMars return. There still is.

We’ll see you all back at Neptune!
