Fundraiser At Donald Trump Hotel ‘Worse Than The Teapot Dome Scandal’ | The 11th Hour | MSNBC


CAMPAIGN.
I’M THE ONLY ONE. I’M THE ONLY ONE.
>>I FELT IT WAS VERY IMPORTANT TO SELF-FUND BECAUSE I THINK
NOBODY KNOWS THE SYSTEM BETTER THAN ME.
>>I’M SELF-FUNDING MY CAMPAIGN, ALL RIGHT?
[CHEERING AND APPLAUDING] >>SELF-FUNDED.
>>YOU GOT IT, YOU’RE SELF-FUNDING.
WELCOME BACK TO THE 11th. YOU SAW THERE PRESIDENT TRUMP
BRAGGING ABOUT HIS CAMPAIGN BEING SELF-FUNDED.
HE STARTED FUND-RAISING LAST YEAR.
WHEN IT CAME TO THE FUNDING FOR 2020 REELECT, THAT STARTED
TONIGHT. DONORS PAID $35,000 A PLATE IN
AN EVENT PULLING IN ABOUT $10 MILLION AS WE MENTIONED EARLIER
IN THE SHOW. TONIGHT’S EVENT WAS HELD AT
TRUMP’S OWN HOTEL, BEGGING THE QUESTION DO BOTH PRESIDENT TRUMP
AND BUSINESSMAN TRUMP PROFIT? I DON’T EVEN KNOW WHERE TO
BEGIN. CONFLICTS, SELF-ENRICHMENT.
>>ALL OF THOSE THINGS.
IT’S ALL OF THOSE THINGS. THIS IS WORSE THAN THE TEAPOT
DOME SCANDAL. WARREN G.. HARDING DIDN’T PROFI
HIMSELF. HERE’S TRUMP PROFITS, EVERYBODY
AROUND HIM MAKES BIG BUCKS OFF OF THIS.
I WASN’T OLD ENOUGH TO REMEMBER THE TEAPOT SCANDAL BUT I DO
REMEMBER JOHN F. KENNEDY AND HIS STATEMENT AT THE INAUGURAL
ADDRESS, ASK NOT WHAT YOUR COUNTRY CAN DO FOR YOU, ASK WHAT
YOU CAN DO FOR YOUR COUNTRY. DONALD TRUMP HAS TURNED THAT
PHRASE ON ITS HEAD. DONALD TRUMP IS ASKING WHAT THIS
COUNTRY CAN DO FOR HIM, HIS CHILDREN, HIS FRIENDS.
HOW MUCH MONEY CAN I MAKE? WHERE ARE THE PROFITS?
THERE IS JUST NO ENDND TO WHERE THIS IS GOING.
THIS IS TOTALLY UNPRECEDENTED. >>AND THE POLITICAL IRONY IS
THAT ONE OF HIS SELLING POINTS TO HIS VOTERS WAS THAT HE WAS SO
