Trump’s flawless sketch of the NYC skyline is now set for auction

Do you have 9,000 extra dollars and *extremely phlegmy cough* singular taste in art? Wonderful — please be the one to buy Donald Trump’s line drawing of the NYC skyline.

Trump originally created this flawless sketch for a 2005 auction benefitting a global literacy initiative. (Charlize Theron, Jennifer Garner, and John McCain also contributed work.) You can tell he spent a lot of time on the drawing because some buildings have triangle roofs and some do not.

Now, 12 years later, the drawing — which Trump signed with a golden big boy marker — is listed by Nate D. Sanders Auctions as a “rare original artwork by the president.” Sadly, that is true.

And yes, that’s supposed to be Trump Tower in the middle — although, as the Washington Post points out, it is actually the 64th tallest skyscraper in Manhattan.

Anyway, bidding begins on Thursday. Set those alerts now!
