Donald Trump’s Campaign Hired Actors To Cheer Him On

Ever since the news broke that The Donald is running for president, sane men and women across America have been walking around with mouths agape in disbelief.

Now proving that the whole thing is probably a charade are the folks at The Hollywood Reporter, who found out that his campaign actually paid actors to come to his presidential announcement and cheer him on.

The New York-based casting company “Extra Mile Casting” put out a notice last Friday looking for folks to play Trump supporters, paying them each $50 for less than three hours of work. Not too shabby actually. I don’t know if I could do it now, but if I were broke and fresh out of drama school I’d definitely pretend to love this maniac.

The casting company actually denied the existence of the email and so I wonder how much hush-money Trump gave them to keep it under wraps.

My suspicions about this ludicrous campaign are that the Republicans are using Donald Trump as a way to make them seem more moderate – but I think it’s backfiring. Using a fool to distract, doesn’t always mask the evil work underneath.

Here is the email unearthed by the Reporter

“Hi there—

We are working helping one of are [sic] associates out at Gotham GR – http://gothamgr.com/ with a big event happening on TUESDAY 6/16/15.

This is an event in support of Donald Trump and an upcoming exciting announcement he will be making at this event.

This event is called “People for a Stronger America.” The entire group is a pro-small business group that is dedicated to encouraging Donald Trump and his latest ventures. This event will be televised.

We are looking to cast people for the event to wear t-shirts and carry signs and help cheer him in support of his announcement.

We understand this is not a traditional “background job,” but we believe acting comes in all forms and this is inclusive of that school of thought.

This event is happening LIVE and will be from 8:45AM-11:30AM. LESS THAN 3 HOURS

This will take place inside / interior.

The rate for this is: $50 CASH at the end of the event.

We would love to book you if you are interested and still available.

Please let us know and we will get back to you with confirmation.”
