Kelly Loeffler asked Donald Trump’s supporters for money on Parler — and it massively backfired

Appointed Sen. Kelly Loeffler (R-GA) attempted to raise money on the right-wing-friendly social media site Parler. It didn't go well.

Loeffler, like other Republican Senators, isn't doing anything about President Donald Trump's loss. As a senator, Loeffler could propose a bill giving confidence to Trump around the election and call for all Republicans to vote on it. Sen. David Perdue (R-GA) could do the same, but he too is mum on the subject.

So, when Loeffler took to Parler asking for election help, it wasn't shocking that she was faced with a slew of attacks.

"I hope you lose you stuck up b*tch. Help Trump and then go away. But you cant (sic) even do that. Your (sic) bought and paid for," said one person.

"Your net worth is literally $500 MILLION dollars (sic). Quit begging for money and write your own check," said another.
