Inauguration fundraiser: Hunting trip with the Trump sons for $1 million

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:

    This is the way our President elect thanks the ones that voted for him, by making them pay to hunt and fish and “celebrate hunters, shooters and fishermen”. This proves that he is way out of touch with the citizens that make up most of America, the ones that the “Wild Turkey” package for $25,000 is their annual income, and $1 million dollars would sustain them for life. “Lets make America Great again!” I’m sure this is the right way to do it. (sarcasm)

      Trump is absolutely nuts and the alarming thing as Obama said in his speech yesterday ….. 37% of Republicans even believe Putin is ok. My heart breaks because it seems like there is really is no hope and that we are being overtaken by the crazies of the world…..the heartless. The suffering in Aleppo….. and now the boyz big thank you to the hunters killing beautiful animals…..so sick. I really have started to wonder if Trump is the devil; the Antichrist.

    That sounds about right. Knew he was just a trigger-happy Cowboy with more Money than Brains. So sad that a primitive like this is going to be the president of the largest Nation in the world. Wonder where America will be when he’s finished? I shudder to think.

    There is not much difference between shooting them with a gun and operating on them for a reason to kill them like Carole Baskin of Big Cat Rescue does when the donation train runs out. At least the Trump boys have the guts to hunt instead of rescue and kill for donations.
    and putting them on exhibit in the party room like she does and call it education. This whole industry is corrupt for nonprofits using animal donations to buy rent houses, right Carole? You all need to check out bigcatrescuewatch.com and see the whole truth about what is going on in this industry.

        You need to do more research. The people in those country’s Need and do get the food from hunts.
        Don’t comment! You just want another excuse to use foul language and insult people.

      • Barkley's Mom says:

        This has nothing to do with what happens to the meat. This has to do with wealthy imbeciles charging people to hunt and fish to make money for an already wealthy President Elect! This is wrong in so many ways, I won’t even begin to name them!

    • Nadya Rossi says:

      Isn’t it pathetic that with all their money, education, opportunities, advantages, connections, they choose to spend their time torturing and killing helpless defenseless animals, that have never done them one bit of harm. I’m wondering where they learned their sadism and cruelty. I don’t think we have to look far.

        Indeed! And they claim to support “conservation” by killing defenseless animals. Nope…it’s just testosterone-fueled EGO, wanting to show off that they’re capable of killing something “big and wild”. *smh* I DARE them to try and do that WITHOUT a gun!

  7. Kathryn Aldridge says:

    I can’t believe there are no comments on this! This is horrendous and unconscionable! AND…Since this is to raise money for their dad, isn’t that illegal after he’s sworn into office? *smh*

    They’re promoting the massacre of innocent animals in order to raise money for conservation charities. Makes sense.

    I don’t know how we’re going to survive the next 4 years. I keep hoping this is a nightmare and I’m going to wake up soon.

    I hope Trump realizes, he can get kicked out of office! I’d like to think anyone in his position would do the right thing by this planet and its inhabitants….ALL of its inhabitants! It would be a great feeling and legacy to stop all senseless hunting. We only have this planet……nowhere is!

    4 years of this obnoxiously soul cringing disgusting family in our faces is almost unbearable. And how many species will become extinct because of Trump’s climate change denial and promotion of gas and oil? We all need to get off our butts and support legislators at the local levels who believe in renewable energy and ecological preservation. Our world literally depends on it.

    • Kathryn Aldridge says:

      Absolutely, Lisa! We must ALL get out and vote for those legislators in 2018! TOO FEW voters show up for those elections….and without more Dems who PROMOTE renewable energy and eco-conservation, our planet may be doomed! ????

      Theodore Roosevelt was the last one. Since then with animal concerns and loss of endangered animals the shift has changed. Trump and his sons just show that it still continues. It could be a John Smith pres elect doing the same thing and we would still be upset. BTW what does Hillary and deleted emails have to do with this post!!!!!

      • Kathryn Aldridge says:

        I’m with YOU, Linda! In the past hundred years, we’ve become a LOT more AWARE…of the self-awareness of sentient beings, of the fact that we’ve been depleting our planet of ALL our natural resources, INCLUDING animals, and of the FACT that we must BE more aware, conscious, and compassionate towards our fellow living beings. And yes…I’d be upset no matter WHO it is killing these magnificent animals! I promoted a petition against the KID who was “big game hunting” with his father a few months ago, in fact.

        And ummmmm, yeah…what an IGNORANT remark that was about “sitting with Hillary deleting emails”! It has NOTHING to do with this story OR the comments. In fact, Hillary is an animal activist. From her website: “The way our society treats animals is a reflection of our humanity.”
        https://www.hillaryclinton.com/issues/protecting-animals-and-wildlife/

        As for emails…GET OVER IT! There was only ONE out of THOUSANDS of emails that posed even the slightest HINT of a risk…which turned out NOT to be a risk at all. The DNC and the GOP were hacked, but her account was NOT. Jussayin’… *smh*

      • Tiana Brown says:

        Yes, I would rather sit with Hillary and delete emails…. than to pay millions to kill bald eagles, grizzley bears, elks. Hopefully, the gun will misfire and the bear will hunt them

    This family has made America into a laughing stock! And every embecile that voted for him should be tared and feathered. Morons and simply DISGUSTING PEOPLE. These so-called men are bored little spoiled boys who have low self esteem that they try to bolster by killing. Let them enlist in a branch of the military and go kill some humans that are destroying this world’s freedoms. Until then, they are COWARDS on ALL LEVELS.

    The Trump boys are just part of the extinction problem among our beautiful wild and INNOCENT animals. SPORTS hunting is a cowardly way. How people that kill for sport can sleep at night, is beyond me. They are murderers, plain and simple. If the sports hunting doesn’t stop, there will be no more left. And they can celebrate with a clear conscience? Say they’re doing it for CHARITY? It’s BLOOD MONEY!!!!!!!!!!!!!! F*** YOU, TRUMPS, AND all the rest of you killers of innocent animals!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
