El Trumpo continued to give his life-long impression of a petulant 5-year-old today when he responded to reporting that he was trying to meet with the Koch Brothers to beg them for money and was denied.
Here’s what the child tweeted:
I turned down a meeting with Charles and David Koch. Much better for them to meet with the puppets of politics, they will do much better!

This flies against all reporting, including past statements by the Koch Brothers, but it won’t matter to his legions of brain-addled followers.
He had taunted his opponents for seeking Koch money during the primaries – it looks like that is coming back to bite him on the Obama:
I really like the Koch Brothers (members of my P.B. Club), but I don't want their money or anything else from them. Cannot influence Trump!

I wish good luck to all of the Republican candidates that traveled to California to beg for money etc. from the Koch Brothers. Puppets?

Great job, genius.
Here’s what Politico reported about the Koch/Trump meeting yesterday.
