Donald Trump Campaign Offered Actors $50 to Cheer for Him at Presidential Announcement
A casting call was sent out last week "looking to cast people for the event to wear t-shirts and carry signs and help cheer him in support of his announcement."

At the time Lewandowski vehemently denied the allegations.

Lewandowski has always been a serial liar. Remember when he assaulted the female reporter on the campaign trail, denied it, and when video came out that showed the assault, said he was only trying to help her out of the way. Lewandowski will say or do anything, legal or illegal, to get what he wants. Truth is not in his vocabulary.
Lewandowski must be hungry.
I guess it was no longer feasible for him to lie.

If that is the case, he once again paid below scale wage.
[@848627,CM440] It sounded worse then that, actually. I think he was trying to blame Cohen, but he ended up looking like, well, a typical lying Trumpist without a shred of human decency.

Wonder how many of those "actors" actually got paid? This is tRump we're talking about! 😲

[@605026,spjennifer] Good point. Either none of them got paid, or they all did with money Trump stole from his "foundation" that New York State later shut down for fraud.

[@339454,windinhishair] I suspect that since it was his campaign that supposedly paid for it that they probably did get paid, if it was him personally they would have been SOL.

I'd need a lot more than 50 bucks to cheer him on, now I might pay 50 bucks to watch him walk down a ramp without help 🤣

[@1088262,independentone] Watch out, it gets slippery when the sun is shining!

I remember that day. I just so happened to turn on CNN, and I soon saw Trump coming down the escalator. I thought it was purely a publicity stunt, not a serious endeavor. How little did we know at the time what would occur less than 17 months later.
