“The conservative group Club For Growth is hosting their annual donors’ meeting, which is a who’s who of Republican heavyweights. But Donald Trump was nowhere to be seen on the invited guest list, and he is beyond furious about that snub. Trump got on Truth Social and childishly attacked the group for not inviting him, even though the group had already made it clear that they didn’t want him to be the nominee in 2024. Farron Cousins explains what happened.

Donald Trump is not a happy camper. And I honestly, I could pretty much start out every single segment I do saying that exact same phrase, because Donald Trump is never happy. There’s always something that if that has him off on any given day, at any given moment, and it changes from hour to hour. But the reason he is mad at, at this current moment, right this second is because the Club for Growth, uh, conservative group, been around for a long time. They’re about to hold their annual donors meeting, which is basically a who’s who of not just the big money donors for the G O P, but also the Republican heavy hitters and potential Republican presidential candidates have been invited to this thing. Ron DeSantis, Nicki Haley, Mike Pompeo, Tim Scott, everybody basically, except Donald Trump. Donald Trump’s name is nowhere on that guest list. He is not on the invited list.
The club for growth has made it clear they do not want Donald Trump anywhere near them. And they’ve even come out and said, recently their president, David McIntosh, said The party should be open to another candidate, even though the Club for Growth, which opposed Trump in 2016 came out in Full Force firm in 2020. Now they’re like, listen, we gotta move on. We don’t even want you in our club. We’re gonna invite everybody but you, we are going to make sure you know you’re being snubbed. And Trump knew it. So he took the truth social as he does, and he wrote this, the Club for no Growth and it, all right, you know what? I’m gonna stop right there because really is that honest to God, the best, like attacking the club for no growth? Get it? It’s funny because their name is Club for Growth, but I’m saying they’re the club for no growth.
Ha ha. Oh yes. With comedy chops like that, you could write for Jimmy Fallon. And I gotta be honest, it’s probably funnier than anything Jimmy Fallon has ever said, let me, let me start over, see if I can get through it this time. The Club for No Growth, an assemblage of political misfits, globalists and losers fought me incessantly and rather viciously during my presidential run in 2016. They said I couldn’t win. I did and won even bigger in 2020 with millions of more votes than 16. But the election was rigged and stolen, ri rigged and stolen. I think he means stolen. He, he threw, threw a few too many Ls in there. So it actually says Stalin, which to be honest, is funnier than the pun you tried to make at the beginning. Um, here’s the thing, man, they don’t want you around, but at the same time, that might work out in Trump’s favor. Recently, of course, you had the Koch network, Americans for Prosperity, like the flagship of the Koch network, come out and say
That, that they’re gonna put their money behind Republican challengers to Trump in the Republican primary. Well, the Koch network and the Club for growth, those are establishment figures. And as Trump did correctly point out, like it is a bunch of big money people, the ones that average Americans left, right and center really do not hold in high regard. So Trump being excluded from this club and of course being excluded from the Koch events that could work out in his favor. He could once again, go out there and be like, look at me. I’m the anti-establishment candidate. The establishment is spending big money to beat me because they fear me because I don’t need them and I will not cater to them. Believe it or not, it worked in 2016. He didn’t really run on that in 2020 because at that point he, he was technically the establishment cuz he’d been in office for four years. But by 2024 he will have been out of office for four years. He could make the same claim. He might be able to hoodwink some of the same people he previously hoodwinked. So if I were Donald Trump, I wouldn’t necessarily be drawing attention to this as a bad thing. You can easily spin this as a positive, but not that I want to give if Trump any good campaign advice. But if you want to be viewed as the anti-establishment guy being shunned by the establishment, probably a good thing for you.
…Poor The Donald…
