Zuckerberg and Russian Money

I’m curious as to whether people are financially successful because of an inflated belief in their abilities, or if the God complex happens after they hit the jackpot.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg is contemplating a run for the presidency in 2020….or he was.
Although Zuckerberg admits to having sold possibly $150,000 in ad space to a Kremlin linked troll farm, it looks like Facebook took more Russian money than just that. 

An article published by ‘TechCrunch’, back in May 2009 sites “a Facebook transaction of $200 Million in the form of an Investment from Russians at a $10 Billion Valuation.”

Mark Zuckerberg, you got some splainin to do. 
Add to this the fact that the ad space which was sold to Russians was used not only to spread propaganda, but to target anti-semites and white supremacists in attempts to organize the hate groups, all to further Trump’s presidential run. These trolls may have reached 70 million people thanks to Facebook.

Was Zuckerberg aware when he took Russian money how the ads would be used? He’s damned either way. I wonder if these revelations will be enough to tamp down his presidential aspirations.

Donald Trump blazed the trail for every multi- millionaire megalomaniac media moll out there. The short list of unqualified possible contenders for 2020 so far: Howard Shultz – Starbucks CEO,  Mark Zuckerberg – Facebook, Mark Cuban – owner of some sports team and frequent reality tv star, Oprah Winfrey – talk show host magazine publisher, “The Rock” Johnson – former pro-wrestler and super hot actor…

If truley interested in public service, why not start with congress or local government? What makes people think they can skip to the front of the line? They must believe their luck at obtaining a fortune in business is attributed to a special kind of genius that will translate to any field— including politics, regardless that they have no knowledge of the law and no experience in government. I don’t get it. 

Trump has proven in these last 10 months that portraying a successful businessman on a “reality” tv show is not the same as experience at governing a country. Trump is a ridiculous failure, and apparently an inspiration to anyone with money.
Can we stop now?
