National Park Store Sells Trump Wines

A store in Virginia's Shenandoah National Park sold wine produced by the Trump Winery as recently as September. ... The wine at the Shenandoah store was spotted by Bill Snape, a senior attorney at the Center for Biological Diversity, a conservation group that has fought President Trump's agenda. He saw bottles of rose wine for sale at one of the stores in the park, which is about a two-hour drive from Washington, D.C. A member of his group had found the wine earlier and sent a photo of it to him, Snape said. "It absolutely raises conflict of interest concerns," Snape said.

Along those lines...

New Online Store Is One More Way For Trump To Profit From Presidency, Critics Say
www.npr.org

...Good-government types may look askance, but Donald Trump now has a new place to cash in on his White House role.

The Trump Organization recently started a website, TrumpStore.com, to sell Trump-branded merchandise such as T-shirts, baseball caps and coin banks.

It's not to be confused with Trump's other website, DonaldJTrump.com. That site sells a lot of the same kind of merchandise, but its profits flow to Trump's presidential campaign.

By contrast, the profits from TrumpStore.com go to the Trump Organization, which is managed by Trump's two older sons, Eric and Donald Jr., but still owned by the president himself.

And the profits could be sizable. The new site sells the kind of expensive merchandise that can be found in country club gift shops, such as plush bathrobes, polo shirts and golf club covers.

The items are not cheap. A white "Classic Stripe Tech Polo" shirt sells for $105, a Trump baseball cap for $35....

I wonder if it would make the evening news if every time someone spotted his products being sold a national park they immediately started to destroy them.

What no EVER-CLEAR, Boones Farm, Morgan David, or THUNDERBIRD??

That's the problem with the The National Park Service.... it's been sissy-fied. Wine indeed.

What's next? Female park rangers?

Next thing your gonna tell me is that they don't sell ammo.

Trump Wine--a product in search of a market. Trump supporters don't drink wine (Bud Light, please) and wine drinkers avoid anything that reeks of urine and battery acid...

This guy is doing a disservice to society if he never teaches a college level class so he can be referred to as "Professor Snape."

So, they don't drink beer, either.
