The Trump family has once again made clear that it plans to milk Donald Trump’s presidency for every penny it’s worth. According to an invitationleaked by gossip site TMZ, Trump’s sons Eric and Donald Jr. are hosting an event the evening of January 21, the day after their father’s inauguration event (to which organizers have reportedly tried and failed to attract popular entertainers with hefty paychecks and ambassador positions). The Trump siblings’ “Opening Day” gala offers attendees the chance, for a mere $500,000 to $1 million, to take a picture with Trump himself. Big money donors at that level will also get a chance to go hunting with Don Jr. and/or Eric, who are well-known for their history of killing beautiful, endangered exotic wildlife.
Tickets to the event start at $25,000, but for that kind of chump change, you only receive a unimpressive package of perks. Even $50,000 and $100,000 tickets won’t even get you pictures with Eric and Donald Jr. You’ll have to cough up at least $250,000 to have a photo opportunity with the brothers, and double that for a chance to hobnob with their father. According to the invite, all proceeds will be donated to unspecified conservative groups. Read full story here
