    It doesn't get any more funny than this!

    Donald Trump wants you to plunk down $99 for an NFT trading card. NFT stands for Non-Fungible Token and is essentially how you create a "unique" item on the internet using block-chain technology. Each card has a unique ID and can be verified through the block-chain, the purpose of which is to differentiate your card from just a copied image of the card.

    NFTs are one of the new fads related to crypto as both rely on block-chain technology to function. Where it differs is that the value of an NFT is controlled purely by what folks are willing to spend on them. They have no intrinsic value whatsoever. It's not even tied to the value of a currency like crypto is. Think of it as buying and selling paintings in real life, except the paintings here are just computer images and do not actually physically exist. NFTs can be more than just an image, they can also be a unique item in a video game world, but for the most part they are cosmetic or aesthetic.

    That Donald Trump teased this cash grab as a major announcement is beyond hilarious. I saw the headline on my phone a few minutes ago and literally started laughing out loud. I wasn't ROFLing but I was close. Then I ran here to see if anyone had noticed yet.

    At some point, you have to feel sorry for the people who still think Trump is fighting for them.

    If this is his idea of a "major announcement" he's not even going to make it to the first primary vote. Apparently he's sticking with the same sort of grifter advisors that got him into Truth Social. They may make some money, but they are not winning any elections.

    Yeah! It states that with each paid order, your own card is "minted". What a great deal!
    I already responded to another post about this, but OH MY GOD!
    It's hilarious, but at the same time sad.

    Time to pony up, snowflakes.... Best way I can think of to fight the war on Christmas....

    If all breaks my way, perhaps one day I can collect enough Donald Trumps to trade for 1 Jacob Stallings 2016 rookie card...

    Also, I now have a MAJOR ANNOUNCEMENT for anybody who follows me on PF.com....

    Yes, as far as a solid plan to retake the White House, this is not it. He still hasn't learned how to make less noise and make every announcement count.

    It's also possible that announcement will be that he's the new National spokesclown for the Big Button Jitterbug....

    Dunno about the charity but the Campaign and PACs most likely can just like they did (including the RNC) bought Don Jr. book. What I can guarantee, they already know how they will grift it.

    Former President Donald Trump on Thursday announced the rollout of a digital trading card line featuring fantastical artwork depicting his "life and career," a collection the Republican president predicted would sell out "very quickly."

    Trump had earlier in the week teased the announcement, which he rolled out on Thursday morning via his social networking site Truth Social. …

    Just watching secular progressives heads explode at their sight of these images was reason enough to create them.
