For one million dollars, there’s the opportunity to start Donald Trump’s presidency off with a bang! Pony up the funds, and the day after the inauguration, a fundraiser entitled “Opening Day,” Donald Trump Jr. and his brother Eric are offering a multi-day hunting or fishing trip. According to TMZ, the event will celebrate hunters, shooters and fishermen – at least for the rich citizens who helped him win.
TMZ obtained a draft of the invite for “Opening Day,” which is planned be held at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in D.C.
Up to 16 people can join in the inauguration celebration; the attire for the fundraiser is described as “camouflage and cufflinks… jeans, boots and hats are welcome” and all proceeds will go to conservation charities although no specific organizations slated to receive the funds have been cited. Trump’s sons have always enjoyed big game hunting and have come under the ire of animal advocates and social media in the past. One especially disrespectful photo garnering criticism as to the lack of respect for hunting and their prey, included Eric Trump posing with a dead water buffalo in Zimbabwe sporting three rifles and a hat propped upon one of the animal’s antlers.
In the past Trump stated his kids love to hunt. A photo of his sons holding up a dead cheetah sparked more online anger in the past.
Just in case you don’t have a million dollars to fork over for this event, here are some less expensive options. After all, Trump is listening and thanking all those needing a job and the middle class Americans who voted for him:
