Melania’s new NFT business venture already being called a “scam”

Former First Lady and lover of Christmas Melania Trump has announced she will soon sell non-fungible tokens (NFTs). The first one will be available for the 2021 holiday season.

A statement announcing the new business touts it as a charitable venture, as a portion of the proceeds will be “donated to support children in the foster care community.”

As for how much of the proceeds will go to kids? Anybody’s guess — Trump’s office has not responded to questions about charity specifics.

“I am proud to announce my new NFT endeavor, which embodies my passion for the arts and will support my ongoing commitment to children through my Be Best initiative,” Trump said.

The first must-have offering, which will be available at and powered by the controversial, right-wing Parler platform, is titled “Melania’s Vision.”

The statement describes it as a “breathtaking watercolor art by Marc-Antoine Coulon, and embodies Mrs. Trump’s cobalt blue eyes, providing the collector with an amulet to inspire.”

And while interested collectors won’t be able to hang their “amulet” on their wall, they can gaze into Melania’s icy blues anytime they want on their laptop. Sounds like a good investment.
