Trump Turns CNN Town Hall Into Money Grabbing Scheme

Published

To say that Donald Trump never misses an opportunity to make money from his ardent supporters is an understatement. So it was just a matter of time for the money-hungry former president to monetize his controversial, lies-filled town hall on CNN.

In less than 48 hours, Trump turned his disastrous town hall into a cash-grabbing scheme in the form of a T-shirt, which MAGA fans can buy for a minimum $47 donation.

The town hall took place one day after Trump was found liable for sexual abuse, and the former president used the platform to mock his accuser and continue to lie about the 2020 election.

The news network received fierce criticism for allowing Trump to spew his lies on live television Wednesday in front of a supportive studio audience, with critics calling it a “disaster” and “shameful.”

But the Trump campaign on Thursday gloated by promoting the shirt ― which features a picture of Trump wearing shades above the caption: “This Is TNN” ― on WinRed, the GOP fundraising platform.

“CNN was hoping to destroy President on live TV, but our favorite President took command of the town hall and emerged victorious,” the campaign wrote on the website.

It added: “President Trump’s CNN town hall was so masterful that many are now saying CNN should be renamed TNN ― the Trump News Network.”

According to the Trump campaign, proceeds will go to the Trump Save America Joint Fundraising Committee, which the website notes is “a joint fundraising committee on behalf of Donald J. Trump for President 2024, Inc. and Save America.”
