Trump Campaign Pays Tens Of Thousands To Fictional Advertising Company

I’ve been trying to watch Mad Men for something like two years now, and as great of a show as it is, the narrative is slow and just doesn’t inspire the binge-watching that one would do with other shows. It appears that some of the people on Donald Trump’s campaign have watched even less of it than me, and wouldn’t recognize the fictional ad company from the show. The campaign has made several payments labeled “web advertising” to a business called “Draper Sterling” in recent months.

From Uproxx:

According to Mediate, ThinkProgress editor Judd Legum discovered three payments of around $10,000 each to the fictional agency founded by Don Draper (Jon Hamm) and Roger Sterling (John Slattery) while digging through the White House hopeful’s latest campaign expense report

Over 30 grand to a fake advertising company. People are worried about what Trump would do with the budget if he was elected, but just imagine the possibilities with him at the helm. The United States could be dropping millions on Tony Stark’s weapons company or sending aid to the Prince of Nigeria. Don’t knock him too much, the good intentions are there.

This news is coming along right after reports that Donald Trump is not worth nearly as much as he has stated in the past, as well as sharply declining approval numbers. All in all, it’s been a nightmarish week for Trump, and does not bode well for the rest of his campaign.
