Trump sells Trump-branded "reusable and recyclable" straws...10 for $15...on his campaign Website.

President Donald Trump is selling "reusable and recyclable" straws to raise money for his re-election campaign.

The straws are already sold-out on his campaign website, but were available in packs of 10 for $15. The website advertises that they are BPA Free, laser engraved and made in USA.

"Liberal paper straws don’t work. STAND WITH PRESIDENT TRUMP and buy your pack of recyclable straws today," the website says.

The new line of straws comes after several cities and towns across the country have banned single-use plastic straws, including Washington, D.C. The move aims to limit the amount of plastic waste consumed. According to UN Environment, 300 million tons of plastic waste are produced globally each year. Nearly equivalent to the weight of the entire human population.

"Making Straws Great Again," Brad Parscale, Trump's 2020 campaign manager tweeted.

6. In Trump world, there's a sucker born every 30 seconds.

I have no idea how much it costs to manufacture 10 plastic straws, but I'm guessing he's pocketing at least $14.75.

And, as the article states, the site sold out.

12. I've seen them in California

this past week we were having drinks before dinner and mine came with a paper straw. And this was up in one of the less blue areas of the state.

I don't understand why people keep pushing straws anyway - I suspect most people learned to drink from a glass by age 3 or 4.

13. Conservative suckers pay cash for expensive symbolism. In the Kerry/Bush election, the right winger

Conservative suckers pay cash for expensive symbolism.

In the Kerry/Bush election, the right wingers had this conservative ketchup so they would be protesting Heinz ketchup, which they thought was enriching Kerry’s wife. She had sold her part of Heinz. The conservative ketchup was very expensive and then you had to pay shipping, which was not cheap either. I emailed one of the companies wondering if they had actually bought or leased a factory to make a short-term fad product. They contracted it out to a gourmet ketchup company ---- in California.

The conservative sheeple were buying overpriced ketchup from Liberalfornia to protest something that was not happening.

I wished them well in their endeavors. They found a niche market to make a good buck off the easily led.

Funny thing - Heinz Corp was primarily supporting republicans.

Now Trump has found a way to 'suck' money from his suckers.

15. I'm a fan of stainless steel straws you could kill someone with.

You know, just in case you had to.

Trump love is pathetic. All they've got is guns.

And plastic straws that are only a danger to wildlife.
