You can find a lot of weird stuff on the internet, memes being one of them. But, did you wake up this morning expecting to find out that a millionaire is secretly funding a pro-Trump political organization? A one that makes internet memes that are maligning Hillary Clinton at that? You didn’t, and that’s the best part about the internet, coming across random and weird news like this.
Palmer Luckey is the guy who sold his company, Oculus, to Facebook for an astonishing $2 billion in 2014, so you know that he has a lot of money at his disposal, but you couldn’t have guessed that he would be using it for this. The pro-Trump organization that he is funding is called Nimble America and their sole purpose is to prove that “shitposting is powerful and meme magic is real” to the people.
Luckey is the group’s money man, and he only started funding them because he thought that it would be funny, and that’s pretty understandable, considering the amount of money that he possesses. This kind of thing could escalate in many ways, good or bad, but it’s definitely exciting to see what will happen in the end with Luckey and this group!
