Donald Trump sending David Axelrod a check — to help fund epilepsy research

As Twitchy reported last week, David Axelrod vowed to Joe Scarborough that he would shave off his trademark mustache if Romney won Minnesota, Michigan, or Pennsylvania. Axelrod quickly reneged on his promise (and, as it turned out, his mustache was safe anyway), but Scarborough is still hoping to slash the ‘stache, this time for a cause:

Axelrod has agreed to do the deed if Scarborough’s fundraising campaign yields at least $1 million:

“If we can raise a million dollars, I will shave the mustache,” Axelrod said on Morning Joe Thursday. “At least I’ll feel good about shaving it off!”

Scarborough himself has already pledged $10,000. And this afternoon, Donald Trump tweeted that he, too, would be sending a check for epilepsy research. Trump has come under fire from all sides for his birtherism, faux conservatism, and just all-around doofusness, but if he seriously intends to follow through with his promise, it’s a very kind gesture:

    Anybody asked Limbaugh? He’s personally very charitable, and he’d love the thought of removing Axeltramp’s mustache!

    So have you conservatives put Donald back on your team? Are you going to join his March on Washington?

      Our “team” is America. It’s a shame that the Democrats left it so many years ago.

        Wait, you mean the majority of the country is no longer America?! I guess you, and what you believe in is the real America, just like the Constitution says.

      Did you ask the political parties of the reply tweeters? Or do you ASSume as always?
      As TugboatPhil said AMERICA is our team. Don’t like it? Get out!

    Romney didn’t actually win any of those states. Axelrod won the bet. Since when is winning a bet renegging? I guess Twitchy has to try REALLY hard to manufacture outrage by painting Democrats as cheats by LYING.

      How do you know he didn’t renege before those counts were in? Hmm.

      shows you what a bad candidate he was. he couldn’t wim his home state Michigan. couldn’t win Pennsylvania. evenChris Christie 2 days before the election wouldn’t help him. we were also told the bitter clingers would give him Pa. I guess not. he trusted Jon voight and rudy Giuliani to help hin in Pa. i’m surprised they didn’t bring that cow victoria jackson for the trifecta.

    How much money would we have to raise to get that trio to shut up and disappear for a while?
