Donald Trump teased a major announcement earlier this week with a caricature of himself claiming “America needs a superhero.”
Thursday morning, the tease was revealed, as the former president announced his NFT collection Donald Trump Trading Cards! “Very much like a baseball card,” Trump said to help his target demo better understand what NFTs are. Only now, Trump fans who grew up collecting baseball cards won’t be able to stick his NFTs between the spokes of their bicycle.
“MAJOR ANNOUNCEMENT! My official Donald Trump Digital Trading Card collection is here!” the former president boasted. “These limited edition cards feature amazing ART of my Life & Career! Collect all of your favorite Trump Digital Trading Cards, very much like a baseball card, but hopefully much more exciting. Go to collecttrumpcards.com/ & GET YOUR CARDS NOW! Only $99 each! Would make a great Christmas gift. Don’t Wait. They will be gone, I believe, very quickly!”
All I can say is that those of us who have lost friends, fought with relatives, resigned positions, been called traitor, left our party, all because we saw very clearly what a con-man, huckster and fraud this man is, have never felt more vindicated. pic.twitter.com/9qrSNHg2re

“This is Donald Trump, hopefully your favorite president of all time. Better than Lincoln, better than Washington,” Trump humbly began the video. “These cards feature some of the really incredible artwork pertaining to my life and my career, it’s been very exciting.”
Images pertaining to his life and career such as Trump with Superman’s physique, Trump as an astronaut, Trump riding a horse, Trump riding an elephant, Trump carved into Mount Rushmore. The NFTs are everything Trump sees when he looks at the mirror in the morning. Twitter, however, saw right through Trump’s delusion and reacted accordingly.
Imagine paying $99 to have an NFT of Trump cosplaying as a superhero. How embarrassing https://t.co/2qRSfnyqG2

I don’t think I’ve ever had more second hand embarrassment than I do right now after seeing Trump’s “major announcement.” pic.twitter.com/GPCnotXboW

Today's Trump announcement is the closest we'll ever get to a concession speech. #Sad

I have been offered significant sums of money to promote NFTs and declined.
They're obviously scammy and have no actual value.
Not sure why anyone would hawk them to their followers.
