Prize Of Christmas Breakfast With Donald Trump Makes Stomachs Turn
On Wednesday, the Republican National Committee announced again via Twitter that one “lucky” person can win transportation to New York City on Dec. 2 to attend a special festive-themed meal hosted by the president:
Did you get the word yet? President @realDonaldTrump is hosting a Christmas Breakfast and is inviting one lucky winner to join him.

The tweet links to a fundraising page on donaldjtrump.com.
It invites participants to donate to the Trump Make America Great Again Committee, a joint fundraising committee linking the Trump campaign and the Republican National Committee, in exchange for entry into the competition.
The small print below, however, links to another page where entrants do not have to contribute to enter the sweepstakes for the prize, which they value at $3,000:
The competition, which runs until Nov. 27, has not gone over well on Twitter.
Most respondents have suggested what they’d rather eat or do instead.
Here’s a sampling of the replies so far:
I hope Hilary wins, they would have so much fun. She could bring him a world map to study. #HillaryClinton

I cannot imagine a worse way to spend Christmas than to have to watch that sociopath eat. Can you imagine? Scarfing down a McMuffin or a burnt steak drenched in ketchup. Blech! pic.twitter.com/Tdis3ygvu0

Yeah, No. I'd still rather walk across a burning pit of Legos barefoot...

Is he the president or a game show host? This is how the President of the United States acts?

I'm sure the "lucky winner" of this fundraiser has already been chosen.
