I Simply Cannot Make This Stuff Up

November 23, 2016

Donald Trump is selling “Make America Great Again” ornaments for your Christmas tree. They’re just $149 each.  I guess he is doing this due to being a working class champion!

Why does Trump still want to sell things to people, even though the campaign is over? Generally speaking, campaigns accrue debt over the course of the election that they then need to pay off. This is usually trickier for losing candidates than winning ones, because losing candidates are not often considered great investments by donors. Earlier this year, Trump co-hosted a fundraiser in New Jersey to help Chris Christie retire the debt from his presidential campaign. So while this particular pitch is a bit odd, the process itself isn’t.

But that does not make it less tacky.
