As Twitchy has reported earlier, to qualify for a spot on the already crowded Democrat primary debate stage, you either have to place somewhere in three specific polls or show that you have amassed 65,000 unique donors to your campaign. As someone who consistently polls at 0 percent, Gillibrand was counting on the donors to get her over the threshold. (It’s also why we suspect Eric Swalwell keeps posting videos begging for one dollar.)
And … drum roll, please … Gillibrand finally managed to con 65,000 people into donating money to her campaign, although we don’t know how many kicked in a buck just to see her on the debate stage for a laugh.
Congratulations and on to the next step in your national humiliation:
Huge news: Over the weekend, we crossed 65,000 donors to our campaign—guaranteeing our spot at the first debates!
I'm so grateful to everyone who's helping power this campaign. We have a lot more work to do in the months to come, but for now: Thank you. pic.twitter.com/HpRlTptkUI

Remember, she’s never lost a race, so President Gillibrand is an inevitability.
i hope you never drop out b/c your entire campaign cracks me up

Yay! Now we get to see you make a fool of yourself on tv.

Because we’ll need comic relief.

I am very excited about this. I can’t wait to hear your inane blather that has captivated 0% of the population.

That's a lot of wasted money.

And yet you still can’t break up to the 1% level.

How many of them are alive? Certainly no breathing, thinking person would donate.

That’s pathetic? You should have been able to get that many in NY? But you’re a horrible senator who does nothing for your constituents?

What are you going to emphasize? Your support for Drag Queen Story Hour?

Excellent – the more leftist clowns the better

Exactly: we want to see 24 people up on that debate stage all at once, each pushing the others further left.
Your move, Swalwell.
