Just when you thought Donald Trump is making some serious damage to American politics, here he comes to destroy the “real meaning of Art” for you.
Trump had reportedly created a flawless sketch for a 2005 auction benefitting a global literacy initiative. The sketch is of NYC skyline, and by looking at it, you can tell he spent a lot of time on the drawing because some buildings have triangle roofs and some do not.
Now, 12 years later, the drawing — which Trump signed with a golden big boy marker — is listed by Nate D. Sanders Auctions as a “rare original artwork by the president.” Sadly, that is true.
And yes, that’s supposed to be Trump Tower in the middle — although, as the Washington Post points out, it is actually the 64th tallest skyscraper in Manhattan.
Anyway, bidding begins on Thursday. Set those alerts now!
