WWE Spokesman Reveals Vince McMahon Donated $5 Million Personally To Trump Charity; Obama Supporters Endorsing McMahon?

The Smoking Gun reported in January that WWE gave $5 million to the Donald J. Trump Foundation in 2010 due to his involvement in WWE storylines.

The donation became a political talking point when Trump recently offered to pay $5 million to the charity of President Obama’s choice if he would release his college and passport records. This caused WWE to release the following statement:

“WWE has not made any donation to the Donald J. Trump Foundation,” WWE’s Brian Flinn told Hearst Newspapers Wednesday evening. “However, as I understand it, the Vince and Linda McMahon Family Foundation has donated $5 million in total to the Donald J. Trump Foundation.”

Flinn told the media Thursday morning the money actually came directly from Vince McMahon.

The McMahon family has distanced itself from Trump following the remarks as Linda McMahon is in a tight race for United States Senate in Connecticut. Running as a Republican in a state where President Obama has a double-digit lead, Linda is trying to appeal to Obama supporters. Check out the following political ad:

What the above ad doesn’t mention is not only does McMahon support Mitt Romney for President, she and Vince donated $150,000 to a pro-Romney Super PAC.

    Well at least Linda and Mitt will have one thing in common… and it's both of them going no where near DC the night after the 2012 Election.

    you might be right about Linda but if you check the you’ll notice Mr useless himself (Obama) is in big trouble right now, its just unfortunate that Romney is equally useless, people should look Into Gary johnson

    • Propaganda!!!

      Right! And then you should check into the hold Big Bird issue and find out why President Obama is really trying to protect his job.

    I'm an unregistered voter and I plan to stay that way!

      Good going. Why go through all the hassle of registering and voting when your only options are Clueless D-bag #1, Clueless D-bag #2, or a third-party D-bag who never stands a chance anyway, whoever he is.

      Now admittedly I'm a Brit so I couldn't vote in the US elections anyway, but that's how I approach UK politics, and it works for me. I've voted once, when I first became old enough, just so I could say I did.
      The way I see it whatever's going to happen is going to happen anyway, regardless of who gets in. I mean seriously, what country is really going to allow the uneducated masses to direct its course? Too many voices, too many unsubstantiated opinions, too little direction.
      Perhaps if terms weren't so short I might vote more often, but the way I see it a successful candidate spends the first quarter of his time settling in to the office, and the last half trying to get reelected, leaving naff all time to do anything of importance. It's really all just a trick by the 1% to keep the 99% occupied with that rather than paying attention to the real problems in their life.

      Ignore the political crap. You can't ever change anything and trying will only cause you stress. Just pay attention to whatever changes and change your own life accordingly. Roll with it. It's the best you can do until you win the lottery and can ignore it all completely.

    Call me crazy, but my opinion is that if you don't vote for your countries prospective leaders, you have no right to complain about them.

    But i still LOVE that t- shirt with; " Vote Obama, Romney is ugly" on it, someone should give that to Cena…

      that’s the problem In a nutshell, people vote for stupid reasons, no one would vote for Obama or Romney if people had a grasp of what either wants to do or who they actually represent. You can always tell who the good guys are by how their shot down, the media told us Ron Paul was racist because of a newsletter with slightly questionable use of words that was written by someone associated with him yet no one dared touch Obama’s relationship with known terrorists so clearly there needs to he change, and I don’t mean Obama’s version.
