Donald Trump Hired Paid Actors To Attend Presidential Launch Event

[img][/img]

The gentleman who posted the pic is a paid actor who regularly posts photos from his gigs on social media. This seemed like all the others from his gigs that he posts. Sure. It seemed fishy. But, but I figured that perhaps it was just a coincidence? Paid actors can support presidential candidates too. No big. I persisted in my incredulity at the thought that Trump might actually pay actors to attend his campaign launch.

Then I discovered the other person pictured in the photo is also a paid actress. Hmmm. That got me thinking a bit. So, I did some digging. Here’s what I discovered…

According to sources: some actors were hired to attend and participate in the event; and, a company called Extra Mile NYC connected Trump’s campaign/event organizers with the paid actors.

I reached out to Extra Mile NYC for comment, but they did not respond.

So there you have it. Donald Trump, who has promised to help repair America’s brand (despite doing some serious damage to Macy’s brand) seemingly paid some actors to participate in his presidential campaign launch.

I'd give them props for that but...they took money to act like they support Donald Rump. Ugh.

4. Has anyone found a photo of the crowd?

I thought he was commenting at the beginning that there were at least a thousand there. I can't imagine there would be a thousand people or animals that would attend his speeches. Cockroaches...maybe. I'd love to see a photo of the crowd.

32. I can agree they are probably hired. He'd have to pay for cheering, as well.

Must have been a huge area if thousands were there and there is so much room between people. I suppose he thinks we'll take his word for the size of crowd.

Thanks for the photos.

37. Business Insider re: that "crowd"

http://www.businessinsider.com/problem-with-the-first-8-words-of-donald-trumps-speech-2015-6

-snip-
You may not believe this, but Donald Trump may have started his campaign for president with a highly dubious claim.

After bounding onstage at his New York City headquarters, Trump Tower, the bombastic billionaire looked up at the crowd that surrounded him in awe.

"Whoa," Trump said. "That is some group of people. Thousands. There's been no crowd like this."

8. Somebody should have re-thought those t-shirts.

The type spacing is so wide that in every picture the T is wrapping around and the shirts only display the word RUMP. Which, I admit, is perfectly fitting for the candidate.

21. I myself welcome his entry into the race....

The comedic potential of this guy running should not be overlooked.

Lately comedy in american politics has been lacking and this may just be the ticket to provide an easier living for stand up comedians.

Seriously though, his entry into the race can only generate even more money for himself......

(By coincidence the man has 8 Billion dollars more than I do and a much easier time making it........)

and at least we should be able to get some entertainment out of the deal in return.......

On Fox News he insulted a disabled commentator. That won't go overlooked. And now he's using paid actors as supporters.

T Rump is creating jobs even at his announcement!

I read the account on MSN of T Rump's announcement. Looking through the comments, I don't think cheering fans are the only folks he paid.

30. It's all theatre. Like hiring a small venue, and leaking to the media that you had to hire a bigger

one because of "increased interest". They all know how this game is played. Theatre.
