Former President Donald Trump probably just gave the topsy-turvy folks at MSNBC a short-lived wave of euphoria.

The presumptive GOP nominee’s morning email with the heading “I’m suspending my campaign…” was Monday morning’s top, April Fools’ Day political clickbait.

The Trump team quickly added, “Just Kidding — Happy April Fools Day.” Trump then rattled off all that ails President Joe Biden, from “Open borders, sky rocketing crime, record inflation, targeted prosecutions, humiliation overseas.”

Trump then asks for 100,000 to “chip in $25” to help offset Biden’s mega-donor fund-raiser last week in New York City.

Biden’s campaign says the shindig they booked at Radio City Music Hall featuring former Presidents Barack Obama and Bill Clinton was the “the most successful political fundraiser in American history.”

Before Biden was even joined on stage Thursday evening in New York by his Democratic forerunners in front of 5,000 paid attendees, with a sold out show and second row seats going for $500,000 a piece the campaign was apparently able to pull in an eye-popping $25 million for just the one event.

Not to be outdone, Trump is inviting wealthy donors to his Mar-a-Lago estate in Palm Beach, Fla., for an April 6 fundraiser hosted by New York hedge fund billionaire John Paulson, the Associated Press is reporting.

As for MSNBC, the cable crew is still being beat up over hiring and then immediately firing Ronna McDaniel, the former RNC chair. And that one is no joke.
