Trump NFTs sell out, Cards quadruple in value on Opensea; Left-Leaning Political Commentators are Outraged
Donald Trump said in 2019 that he wasn’t a fan bitcoin (BTC). Today, the former president has used blockchain technology to release his NFT trading card. The 45,000 cards feature images of Trump as Superman, an astronaut and a cowboy among many other designs. There have been allegations that Trump’s NFTs team used stock images from Shutterstock, and left the Shutterstock watermarks onto the NFT photos.
Half of those mocking Trump for selling NFTs were silent when he was selling our nation’s future via record inflation.

Good morning and happy Saturday to everyone who agrees that it’s fantastic that House DEMs introduced legislation to ban trump from office under Section 14th Amendment so he can spend more of his time selling ridiculous digital Trump Card NFTs.

Since Trump’s announcement, the NFT trading cards caused a commotion among left-leaning pundits. In a tweet, Joe Biden, the current U.S. president, mocked Trump by saying that Biden had “some MAJOR ANNOUNCEMENTS in the last few weeks,” using all capital letters just like Trump. Lindy Li, a left-leaning political commentator, made fun of Trump’s NFT announcement when she said:
Trump’s big announcement was that he is selling NFTs. Melania announced that she was selling a $185,000 NFT. Ivanka made the big announcement to promote Goya beans. Don Jr. made the big announcement that he would sell 500 cameos. The White House is occupied by the most inept family.
Kurt Eichenwald (ex-New York Times (NYT), author) was one of the other proponents. He attempted to expose Trump’s NFT venture. Eichenwald wrote a blog post about his Substack in which he claimed that Trump’s trading card grift was worse than you think. Eichenwald discovered that shell companies are associated to NFT International LLC. Eichenwald concluded that NFT International LLC is not crooked, despite the fact that the former NYT columnist linked the company to people with bad reputations.
