    Meg Whitman To Fundraise For Clinton To Take Down ‘Demagogue’ Trump
    The prominent GOP fundraiser and CEO of Hewlett Packard said “Donald Trump’s demagoguery has undermined the fabric of our national character.”

    Calling Donald Trump an “authoritarian character” and a threat to democracy, Meg Whitman, a prominent Republican fundraiser and chief executive of Hewlett Packard Enterprise, endorsed Democrat Hillary Clinton’s White House bid late Tuesday.

    “To vote Republican out of party loyalty alone would be to endorse a candidacy that I believe has exploited anger, grievance, xenophobia and racial division. Donald Trump’s demagoguery has undermined the fabric of our national character,” Whitman posted on Facebook about the Republican nominee.

    In an interview with the New York Times, which first reported the endorsement, Whitman said it was time “to put country first before party” and that she would give a “substantial” contribution to Clinton’s campaign.

    Whitman told the Times that Trump is a “dishonest demagogue” and said that those who look at other failed democracies and believe “it can’t happen here” are mistaken.

    “Trump’s unsteady hand would endanger our prosperity and national security. His authoritarian character could threaten much more,” Whitman wrote on Facebook.

    Whitman’s endorsement is the latest from a string of business leaders who have moved to back Clinton in recent days, including other high-profile Republicans.

    Clinton reached out to Whitman personally about a month ago, according to the Times report. Her campaign also courted former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who delivered an endorsement speech at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia last week.

    Clinton’s campaign viewed Bloomberg, a billionaire Republican and household name, as being able to go toe-to-toe with Trump’s claims he is best suited to run the country given his own business credentials, according to those familiar with the discussions.

    Dallas Mavericks owner and television personality Mark Cuban also backed Clinton last week, calling her campaign chairman John Podesta on the night shen accepted her nomination to say he was ready to support the former secretary of state.

    Cuban on Saturday made a surprise appearance at a Clinton rally in Columbus, Ohio, reversing course from earlier statements that he would likely vote for Trump.

    “Leadership is creating consensus in our amazing country and letting everybody know that American exceptionalism and the American dream are alive and well, that’s what leadership is, that’s what Hillary Clinton is,” said Cuban.

    Clinton’s campaign released a list in June with business leaders from whom they had secured support. Among them were several high-profile Republicans, including Dan Akerson, a former chairman and chief executive at General Motors.

    Editor’s note: Donald Trump regularly incites political violence and is a serial liar, rampant xenophobe, racist, misogynist and birther who has repeatedly pledged to ban all Muslims ― 1.6 billion members of an entire religion ― from entering the U.S.

    Really, after the Dems slimed her during her gubernatorial run.

    Well I'll repeat myself

    Billionaires are jealous bitches. Everyday the media is making hay about some billionaire coming out against Trump. Mark Cuban, Bloomberg, the Koch's, Meg Whitman's a billionaire? People make a big deal out of these not because they're fantastic people, its solely because of their wealth. So if Trump were to become president it diminishes them. Oh sure you're a billionaire but Trump was a billionaire AND POTUS fah!

    There was this great mini series on the History Channel called "The Men Who Built America." It detailed the history of America's early business titans, Carnegie, Rockefeller, Vanderbilt, Ford etc interspersed with commentary by modern businessmen Cuban, Ichan, Trump etc and politicians. It was the same back then, a billionaire doesn't want anyone wealthier or more famous than he is.

    Besides Scott Baio, are there any prominent Americans who publicly support Trump?

    In January 2011, Whitman joined Hewlett-Packard's board of directors. She was named CEO on September 22, 2011. In May 2013, Bloomberg L.P. named Whitman "Most Underachieving CEO" along with Apple's CEO Tim Cook (ranked 12) and IBM's Virginia Rometty (ranked 10) -- whose stocks have all turned in the worst numbers relative to the broader market since the beginning of each CEO's tenure. HP's stock led the list by underperforming by 30 percentage points since Whitman took the job.

    Note, the S&P500 is up 80% since that date, HP is down -4%. That's Meg's total 5 year return, -4%.


    Way to keep your "Low Energy" eye on the ball Meg.

    200% increase in vaginal mutilation in this country due to increased muzzie immigration is less important than who a billionaire is campaigning for.

    You're a terrible judge of what constitutes threadworthiness.

    It's dependent on which MSM sources are parroting it? Do you see how stupid that criteria is? Are you even capable?

    Meg might have made one of the few right moves of her sullied political career here.

    Trump has decided to toss himself and his staff down a very long flight of stairs; only he seems to be the only one enjoying the experience at this point. If there is a wrong move to make, El Trumpo is making it. Attacking babies, the Republican leadership and military families - - - oh, and firefighters - -- and women - - - and the disabled - - - what a guy.

    Why, Trump is like the post-2005 Stern! He likes to show up to be appreciated every once in a while; but don't expect him to work at it. Everything is great! You are the problem!

    Why is it so hard for you to get that this is the MAINSTREAM forum and you are welcome to put those other topics in the politics forum, that is why there are two forums.
