Now that businessman Donald Trump has announced yet another presumably ill-fated run at the White House, there are already tons of stories circulating about his announcement - ranging from the fact that he said some pretty offensive things to the idea that he actually had to pay people to show up and hold signs.

While many people believe that Donald really has no chance of actually becoming the GOP candidate, especially in a battle against Hillary Clinton, he is actually polling better than quite a few of the top-pick candidates for Republicans. There is even talk that he is going to replace the only woman running for the Republicans in the debates.

While his parody of a speech in which he basically rambled for an hour maybe served its purpose: it got people talking about the Donald as a real choice, it is hilarious clickbait that all of the late night shows are talking about, and it has people taking him seriously.

However, as we've already covered, there have been some problems. Neil Young is really mad that Donald used one of his songs during the announcement - and he used it without permission from the label, which means that no one got paid. Donald, you always talk about how much money you have, so why did this happen?

Even worse, it turns out that Donald may have had to pay people to show up! In fact, there was a good turnout at Trump’s presidential announcement at Trump Tower on Tuesday, that people started getting suspicious. The Hollywood Reporter claims that Trump gave the actors that you saw on camera $50 each to show up and wave signs for him. THR even had the email evidence, and it’s pretty clear that many of the “homemade signs” were actually distributed by Trump’s campaign. Trump’s people told E! News the story isn’t true but they would not be commenting further. Yeah right, if we've learned anything it's that Trump can't keep his mouth shut.
