Donald Trump never misses an opportunity to make a buck.
In the middle of a Category 4 hurricane that thrashed the Texas coastline and caused possibly the worst flooding in U.S. history, the White House released official photos of Trump holding emergency teleconferences with Cabinet officials. In the photos of the two teleconferences, held on Saturday and Sunday, Trump is seen wearing oversized caps, one white and one red, emblazoned with “USA.”
Perhaps the gesture of uniting the country in the middle of a catastrophic natural disaster with a seemingly patriotic hat normally wouldn’t raise many eyebrows. But this is Donald Trump, and the opportunity wasn’t wasted. Because in case you were wondering, these hats are available on the Trump–Pence campaign website, where they go for $40 each.
Stay classy, Donald.
