Those Freedom Kids Who Performed at a Drumpf Rally Are About to Sue Him

You can't make this stuff up!!

Back in January, a trio of young girls known as the "USA Freedom Kids" performed at a Donald Trump rally in Penascola, Florida. The routine, which involved the girls whirling in flashy American flag dresses and singing a song that denounced the other presidential candidates as sworn enemies, was roundly mocked on social media, where viewers likened the video to performances honoring North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un.


--snip--

Now Jeff Popick, the creator behind the patriotic trio and father of the youngest member in the group, says he plans to sue Trump, alleging his campaign violated several verbal agreements and subsequently stiffed the group of proper monetary compensation.

From the Washington Post:

It started in Pensacola. When Popick first reached out to the Trump campaign about performing, he spoke with various people including former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski. His understanding from the campaign was that the Kids would make two appearances in Florida, where Popick lives. The first event didn't come to fruition, and Popick says he asked for $2,500 in payment for the second performance, in Pensacola. The campaign made a counter-offer: How about a table where the group could pre-sell albums?

According to Popick, no table ever showed up—and the incident was the first of a series of broken promises and unreturned phone calls that went on all the way to the Republican National Convention in Cleveland. There, Trump's team allegedly offered Popick a consolation prize and promised that the girls could perform because of all the previous disappointments. That performance never materialized either and now he says he's planning to file suit. He wouldn't specify for how much, but explained that it wasn't a "billion-dollar lawsuit" and suggested a performance at a Trump venue similar to the RNC one could also work.
