You gotta be kidding me...

Well, folks, it looks like the disgraced, one-term, twice-impeached ex-president has cooked up yet another pathetic cash grab at the expense of his own supporters, and this one’s even more ridiculous and hilarious than we were prepared for.

Axios now reports on a new discovery they’ve made when it comes to Donald Trump’s “American Freedom Tour” of events he’s got scheduled all across the country. It seems Donald is now headlining as a “motivational speaker” on his own tour. And wouldn’t you know, it’s going to cost his supporters one hell of a pretty penny to get a seat to the show.

The report notes that supporters who want to attend one of the “American Freedom Tour” events can nab a ticket for anywhere from $9 to a staggering $4,000, per ticket. Now, you best believe you’re not getting much for the cheap option. The cheat ticket only gets you seating in the “Overflow Room.” Ticket prices go up from there, depending on the various perks and potential face time you want with the ex-president. The “Presidential” package rings in at just under $5K, and allows you seating in the “presidential section,” and various private events with the likes of Don Jr. and Dinesh D’Souza. The website also offers a “Patriot” package that includes all of the perks from the previous packages as well as a photo op with Donald Trump and a roundtable event with Mike Pompeo. However, they don’t even list a price for that package, and the website just says “Click to contact us.”

Underneath all the fluff, this entire “tour” is nothing more than yet another way to line his pockets with his supporters’ cash while pumping more of his MAGA agenda to his sheep. The entire “American Freedom Tour” was founded by Chris Widener, a veteran of the lucrative “motivational speaker” industry, who told Axios “most all of our speakers get paid an honorarium for the event,” but would not fess up to how much money Donald Trump would be packing home from the events.

“The American Freedom Tour is not a Republican-aligned event or a Trump-aligned operation,” he said.

However, he went on to add “both President Trump and Donald Trump Jr. are incredible speakers and we are happy to have them on our tour.” Widener claims the tour’s message is “Faith, Family, Finances, and Freedom.”

Seems to me it just screams SCAM.
