Just one question: If Donald Trump and “MAGA Republicans” are “semi-fascists” — Biden would’ve gone with “fascist” but even his handlers likely thought that would’ve been too strong — why does that message fail to resonate with a majority of voters? So how desperate is the Democrat Party, with midterms less than 30 days away? Desperate enough to go to Europe for a fundraising tour — that desperate.
Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney, the head of House Democrats’ campaign arm known as the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC), was photographed in Paris earlier this month along with serial liar and House Intelligence Committee Chairman Rep. Adam Schiff, as reported by Daily Mail:
Top House Democrats recently embarked on a swanky Euro-trip to fundraise for the looming midterm elections back at home, it was reported over the weekend.

A ‘cocktail reception and dinner’ to benefit the DCCC was held in Paris, France on October 1, according to invitations shared by the New York Times.
Yep, sure enough. Here’s Schiffty “on a swanky Paris balcony,” sipping wine and eating hors d’œuvres.

A similar invitation was sent out for a fundraiser in Geneva, Switzerland, on October 3.
While it’s understandable why most of Europe might prefer Democrats in control in D.C. — Donald Trump held NATO countries’ feet to the fire to pay “their fair share” — the fundraising tour shows the desperation of Schiff & Company, as poll after poll continues to suggest a Democrat beatdown in November.
They surely feel our pain… Adam Schiff was spotted on video sipping wine with Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee Chairman, Sean Patrick Maloney, and Democratic donors during a recent Paris event…https://t.co/PmuAqblc34

Schiff and Maloney embarked on the tour last week to fundraise from Democrats living abroad. DCCC spokesperson Chris Taylor said in a Sunday statement that the fundraising event abroad was part of the organization’s efforts to “stop MAGA Republicans” at home:
Chairman Maloney has been on a 10 city, 10 day fundraising swing, raising millions of dollars for candidates who will help stop MAGA Republicans who want to pass a national abortion ban from gaining control of Congress.
Republican New York Assemblyman Mike Lawler, who is running against Maloney, said in a tweet about Maloney’s European junket:
While @spmaloney was galavanting around the globe to raise money to re-elect socialists and keep @SpeakerPelosi in power, I’ve been speaking directly to voters across the district every day since May. No one should be surprised when Sean loses on November 8th.
“Shockingly,” the DCCC did not respond to a question of how much was raised from American ex-pats in the two wealthy cities, according to Daily Mail.
