Donald Trump Raises $600,000 For Romney Campaign By Throwing Birthday Bash For Candidate's Wife
Let's face it: the possible First Lady has had a rough week. The news cycle was head over heels with the recent housewife controversy that sparked between the Romney tent, Hillary Rosen and Bill Maher. You know, that whole comment about Ann "never actually [working] a day in her life." Yeah, that one. And, to top it all off, it was her birthday yesterday. Ouch.
As of now, the b-day fundraiser is expected to top $600,000 , proving that a ticket to the Trumps' palace sells... and fast. Within 48 hours, 200 rich people immediately bought tickets to the event and, with a capacity of just that number, the Trumps have been forced to add another leg onto it.
