Trump's "Major Announcement" Is... a Salespitch for Supporters to Buy His New "Digital Trading Cards"
Update: Video Added

I don't think this even rises to the level of "overpromising/underdelivering."

"very much like a baseball card, but hopefully much more exciting," one unimpressed Tweeter repeats.

So my problem with Trump, for a while, has been this: I want him to talk about Trumpism, which I am fully, 100% on board with, as I think it represents a crucial, vital corrective to the current disastrous course the country is on.

But he barely talks about policy. He just talks about Trump.

I don't really care about Trump, personally. Trumpism, yes. Trump himself? Eh!

And this is just another example of putting the man over the mission.

The "digital trading cards" just feature Trump in different outfits.

I mean...





Whoever sold Trump on this should be fired. But he can't fire the guy that gave it final approval.

Sometimes a hitter has a hot bat, and sometimes his bat goes cold. Trump's bat is now ice cold and it's been cold for a while.

I do not know what the hell he's thinking. It's almost like he's giving up and just wants to be seen as contending for the nomination, while not actually winning it. Like he wants to quit, but doesn't want to be seen a quitter, so he's just doing things to make himself lose.

The only man who could really beat Trump is Trump and I think Trump just checkmated Trump. I don't see how he recovers from this.

From the comments:

>>>I mean, the guy's entitled to have fun, but I don't think the country's in the mood right now.

It was the "MAJOR ANNOUNCEMENT" thing. If he had just offered this, or had teased it by saying he would be *selling* something today, I don't think people would mind that much.

Or if he had said, "I have something fun coming tomorrow."

Then, fine. No big deal when you announce trading cards.

But he baited people into expecting a, well, "MAJOR ANNOUNCEMENT," and it's just a Ronco Sales Pitch.

I thought might be announcing something to do with policy or America or the future but no, we're just summoned to talk about Trump some more.


Video Pitch: Excuse the leftwing account posting this video. I cannot find the full video pitch on other accounts. Also, the website where Trump is selling these, which also has the video on it, is currently overwhelmed with traffic and inaccessible. You may or may not be able to get through. (Update: At the moment, you can get through and see the video.)

So this is the only guy I could find with the full message.

It's not more embarrassing than the actual product. There's also a sweepstakes where you can win a dinner with Trump or a zoom call with him. So there's that. There's a huckster quality to it which is... ill-suited to a man seeking to return to the White House.

This guy had part of the clip. He's disappointed. (Unless he's a Moby.)
