It has become common knowledge that mere moments after an act of terror is perpetrated on the world, Donald Trump will be the first to offer his horrific and offensive political opinion via Twitter.

In the wake of the horrific mass slaughter of innocent French citizens on holiday, Thursday, Donald Trump was quick to issue his statements of condolences, vengeance on terror, and a promise to postpone his much-awaited vice presidential announcement for another day.

But behind the scenes was a different story entirely. Though The Donald postponed one political event to appear respectful, another event was just about to begin in Bel Air.

Just hours after Trump sent out his “thoughts and prayers” message, the rich and powerful began to line up to attend a Trump-sponsored fundraising event.

And this fundraiser wasn’t just a community potluck; attendees paid as much as $449,400 per couple to spend a little time with their favorite orange demagogue.

Even the lowliest of attendees had to pay at least $2,700 to eat some fancy food in the vicinity of Donald J. Trump, those poor peasants.

You just know that Trump was rubbing his grubby little hands together the moment he heard innocent lives were slaughtered. Every death from hate is another investment into the Trump stock – helping to justify in the minds of the ignorant the hateful and extremists policies he has been proposing for months.
