Yes, just when you thought life couldn’t get any weirder, the White House online gift shop brings US a Coronavirus Commemorative Coin.
As the deadly virus continues to kill thousands of people and cripple daily life for most Americans, the tacky salesman in the Oval Office can’t help but ask us to commemorate the “historic moment”. Is that $1200 stimulus check (that I have not seen yet) burning a hole in your pocket? Check this out!
The COVID-19 coin features both Trump and Pence with an empty White House podium on one side, and a graphic of the virus itself on top of the earth on the flip side.
The coin also gives a shout-out to the rest of the COVID-19 gang, in a much smaller font of course: Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin, Surgeon General Dr. Jerome Adams, Dr. Deborah Birx and Dr. Anthony Fauci.
It also includes slogans, like,
“Together We FOUGHT The UNSEEN Enemy”
“Everday HEROES Suited Up”
“Everyday CITIZENS Did Their Part.”
They are taking pre-orders but it’s been marked down from $125 down to $100. The store is actually privately run and barely related to the actual White House. It claims proceeds will be donated to hospitals.
This new COVID-19 coin is the 11th in the gift shop’s Historic Moments collection, which also commemorates Trump’s meetings with (now dead?) North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un.
Oh, and with Mother’s Day right around the corner, here’s a hot gift tip if Mom’s a Trumper. She’s gonna LOVE this official commemorative coin of her guy and Vlad.
