Bannon Selling Ten-Thousand-Dollar Passes to View Live Stream of Republican Convention

CHARLOTTE (The Borowitz Report)—In what he is calling “the opportunity of a lifetime,” Steve Bannon is offering an exclusive ten-thousand-dollar pass to view a live stream of the 2020 Republican National Convention.

The pass, which Bannon is marketing as the magaViewPass™, will offer customers “a one-of-a-kind chance to see the R.N.C. live, as it happens,” according to his promotional Web site.

“With the magaViewPass™, you’ll be able to bring the excitement of the R.N.C. into your own home, as you experience the pageantry of the Republican National Convention on your TV, tablet, or phone,” the Web site promises.

Additionally, Bannon’s site claims, those who purchase the magaViewPass™ will get “unprecedented access” to live speeches by Vice-President Mike Pence, Melania Trump, and “Donald J. Trump himself.”

“You won’t see these amazing speeches anywhere else,” the site boasts.

The magaViewPass™ site asserts that “nearly one hundred per cent” of proceeds will be donated to Trump’s reëlection effort, with a small fraction covering miscellaneous expenses, including but not limited to Bannon’s bail.

2. I know! The line from reality and satire has practically vanished

Since almost anything that they say or do would have been viewed as OTT unimaginable previously - but now we're faced with it countless times every day. It's got to be tough for the satirists and political comedians to keep up, they barely need writers there is so much new material!
