The State of the Union Address is now for sale.
“Please make a special State of the Union contribution to have your name broadcast on the Official Donald J. Trump for President livestream.”
You have got to be kidding me. The President of the United States is actually selling the ability to have your name crawling over the State of the Union address and nobody is batting an eye. This man has brought us so low that he can sell time on a speech to both houses of Congress and it’s actually being overlooked because the rest of his conduct is so ridiculous.
How far are we from, “This section of my speech is brought to you by Koch Industries. Remember, Koch industries when you want a conglomerate that really stays on the RIGHT side of the aisle.” Then he talks about what a great year it’s been on the stock market because of his policies. Koch then gives him a few million dollars in advertising revenue and he pops that into his campaign fund which bypasses the limits on individual contributions.
If you give $35 you will have your name run across the live stream of the State of the Union address and you’re encouraged to give anywhere up to $2700 which is the individual limit.
In about ten days the government will run out of money again. Nobody can agree on immigration. The country is bitterly divided. And the president is under investigation for treason. Yet, he still is making noises about firing the special prosecutor. In the middle of all this, he has the gall to charge a fee to run your name across the screen over the State of the Union address.
What does he have to do to go too far?
