What’s a feel good GoFundMe Campaign without a little controversy? Well, let me break it down for you. When it comes to this administration, nothing is as kosher as it seems.

Recall if you will the little website that Walt Jr. set up to help his dying dad. Savewalterwhite.com was essentially ahead of it’s time. Now, you have whole websites dedicated to helping people with their causes and legal fees.

However, in the Breaking Bad Universe, the website was hijacked by shady lawyer Saul Goodman. I have written before how Saul Goodman headlines one of if not the most iconic TV show in history, one that transcends reality. Saul convinced Walt that he should launder his drug money through his son’s website. By sending small, but consistent donations through the site he can get that money without being detected.

Now, that the Build the Wall campaign is raking in some serious cash, there’s been some concerns about where this money will actually go, because it almost certainly won’t go to build the wall like it says. In that sense it’s donors are already getting fleeced, but as most things go in the Trump administration. There is almost certainly going to be a Russian connection to this. If you look at the donors they are almost all laughably anonymous donors with weird or trollish names. Now, I have no doubt that there are real people mixed in there donating their money, but once again the Breaking Bad Universes aligns perfectly with the criminal nature of the White House.
