Sure, we’re all laughing at popular vote loser Donald Trump’s historically low approval ratings and inability to get anyone to dance or sing for him at his inauguration! But behind the scenes, corrupt billionaires are paying big money to stage private celebrations at which they can tell the orange man-baby exactly what they expect from their new President!
The New York Times reports that corporations and Trump’s slimy billionaire cronies have donated more than $100 million for inaugural parties—nearly double the record for any previous inauguration!
In exchange, they’ll gain access to events like: a black-tie dinner for cabinet nominees, congressional leaders, diplomats, and big-money donors; a lunch hosted by Trump’s chief of staff, Reince Priebus; a dinner honoring Vice President-elect Mike Pence; and a candlelight dinner with the orange man-baby and his criminal family, held in the great hall of Washington, DC’s Union Station.
These rich scumbags will take private transportation from their luxury hotels to these events, and get private tours of Smithsonian museums! If they’ve coughed up a big enough bribe (packages start at $25,000 and go up to $1 million), they get VIP tickets to an inaugural ball and even the swearing-in ceremony itself!
