I will never feel sorry for Donald J. Trump, but it is hard not to notice how sad his life has become. In the month since he announced that he was running for President, Trump apparently hasn’t left Mar-a-Lago except to have dinner with white supremacists. Recent polls have also shown that support even among Republicans is cratering, his favorability rating is at a seven-year low, and Ron DeSantis is beating him handily in a hypothetical head-to-head matchup. Republicans — even some hard-core MAGA folks — are seeing Trump for what he is: A sad little Nazi man.
The Trump campaign is gloom and despair. Yesterday, however, Donald J. Trump hinted that he may soon shake off the doldrums with a MAJOR ANNOUNCEMENT, accompanied by the former President in superhero garb.

That’s some real Homelander energy. Surely, though, he has the goods to back up the superhero abs, right? RIGHT? This announcement is going to live up to the ALL CAPS bluster, right?!
Oh my goodness Trump’s “major announcement” is even more pathetic than I anticipated pic.twitter.com/5IzjklP7Fo— Aaron Rupar (@atrupar) December 15, 2022
Wow. $99 Trump NFTs! Digital baseball cards. Way to jump on a pathetic trend eight months too late. Who thought this was a good idea?
I don’t think I’ve ever had more second hand embarrassment than I do right now after seeing Trump’s “major announcement.” pic.twitter.com/GPCnotXboW— Brian Tyler Cohen (@briantylercohen) December 15, 2022

I wish I was making this up. and the rubes are going to eat this shit right up— Jeff Tiedrich (@itsJeffTiedrich) December 15, 2022
We thought Trump's "major announcement" was that he was making a push to be Speaker, or that he was announcing his VP pick, or that he was running as an independent or starting a third party.— Tristan Snell (@TristanSnell) December 15, 2022
No. He's releasing a line of collectible cards.
That's how far he's already fallen. 😂
I say this as a Trump supporter. The “MAJOR” Trump announcement is nothing short of a massive embarrassment. What a joke.— OEF VET (@OEFvetted) December 15, 2022
Great news for everyone: nothing you do for the rest of the year will be as humiliating as this. https://t.co/dM3M9Clo2o— BuzzerBlog (@buzzerblog) December 15, 2022
Even Ben Shapiro is making fun. And folks, when you’ve lost Ben Shapiro …
Thank God, the digital trading cards are here. It was indeed a MAJOR ANNOUNCEMENT. pic.twitter.com/T1nsqRwr92— Ben Shapiro (@benshapiro) December 15, 2022
(Enjoy a header of Kate Beckinsale in Trump’s stead for old time’s sake!)
