Former President Donald Trump had hyped a “major announcement” that was coming this morning. Many thought would announce his ambitions to become the speaker of the House.
Instead, Trump pitched his supporters on a line of “digital trading cards” featuring the notorious narcissist in fabulous poses reminiscent of Russian leader Vladimir Putin’s propaganda. The various cards show Trump riding an elephant, posing as a superhero, shooting lasers out of his eyes, and surrounded by gold bars. He claims they are “ART of my Life & Career!”
They cost $99 each. The NFTs, according to Trump, are “very much like a baseball card, but hopefully much more exciting.”
NFTs, or non-fungible tokens, have become a popular way to sell digital art. Each one is given a unique digital “signature” to increase its value. While some popular meme graphics have sold for outrageous sums of money, Trump’s fantastical NFTs are basically worthless if no secondary market develops for them.
Trump, who clearly doesn’t understand what an NFT is, told his followers that they will soon sell out of the digital artwork. He also thinks they would make a great stocking stuffer and that he was a greater president than George Washington or Abraham Lincoln.

It’s so sad. Reminds me of the people sending their last dollars to a televangelist promising heaven. What an awful man grifting unabashedly.
