The talking point has gone out among Democrats who are holding up an economic stimulus package that it’s just a “slush fund” for President Trump. David Frum seems to have bought it hook, line, and sinker, accusing Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin of being willing to crash the United States economy over it.
It’s quite incredible that Mnuchin and McConnell would *by their own account* rather crash the American economy than relent in their demand for a huge, secret, no-strings payout to the Trump family

As Twitchy reported earlier, Rep. Dan Crenshaw called out Democrats on the “slush fund” talking point:
Dems are lying about the rescue bill. They say it’s a “slush fund.”
In reality, loans to big businesses PROHIBIT increases in executive pay and stock buy backs. It’s in the bill, clear as day.
They don’t have real reasons for opposing this. This is pure, bitter partisanship.

And yet Frum is calling it a no-strings payout to the Trump family.

Frum has gone full Alex Jones. He is Tom Arnold and Bill Kristol.

David Frum lost credibility in my mind long ago. But if you still think he's legit, I give you this: https://t.co/DPnJqPvrw6

There is no "huge, secret, no-strings payout to the Trump family" in this legislation. https://t.co/dpLnh3yiPZ
I'm beside myself that they're pushing this. https://t.co/pVzbxyE7Kp

Now we’re not sure whom to believe about this “secret” payout to the Trump family; Frum, who’s suffering from TDS, or Crenshaw, who posted actual text from the bill.
