We all know President Donald Trump has some really off-color friends. His most avid supporter during his campaign for god’s sake was Sarah Palin. She never got a Cabinet position; however, he hasn’t forgotten her.
Fox News reported:
‘In a gathering of perhaps the most famous conservative personalities and entertainers in the country, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin and musicians Kid Rock and Ted Nugent dined at the White House with Trump on Wednesday night.’
Here’s a picture of it. Behold and bask in all of its white trash glory.

The picture was tweeted out by Obama’s former speechwriter Jon Favreau, who tweeted:
‘This is the day that Donald Trump became President.’
In his tweet, Favreau throws shade at Trump with the quote “This is the day that Donald Trump became President.” It’s become a running joke that when Trump does something significant, that’s the day he becomes president. Any other day, he’s just the orange, inexperienced guy playing the president in the Oval Office.
For instance, with Trump’s recent bombing on a Syrian air base, CNN’s Fareed Zakaria said:
‘I think Donald Trump became President of the United States.’

Additionally, when Trump was giving a speech to a Joint Session of Congress, he acknowledged a widow of a Navy SEAL. It was a powerful moment that was both widely praised and widely criticized. CNN’s Van Jones made this remark:
‘He became President of the United States in that moment, period.’

The shade thrown at Trump is hilarious considering who he had visiting him in the White House. Trump is the President of the United States, of all people, and he had the notoriously racist Ted Nugent over for dinner. These are people Trump should be distancing himself from if he doesn’t want to be considered a racist. What does he do though? He has them over for dinner.
