White House Gift Shop Server crashed due to overwhelming demand for Trump-Kim Coin

The red hot deal of the day is causing some server issues at the White House gift shop’s website today. Those hoping to get a piece of history, in the form of a coin commemorating the historical North Korean summit, are being met with 504 errors and “server busy” messages. And the summit isn’t happening either.

I tried to get my own little piece of the Fail, but alas, 504. It was not meant to be.

3. Real copies of the old Chicago Tribune "Dewey Defeats Truman" headline sell for big bucks.

So, yes.

6. Probably trying to grab some to sell on eBay.

The seller will jack the price up really high cuz it's Rare.

Thing is, there will be 30-40 other listings right beside it with the same Rare coin.

That always cracks me up. And who the hell makes a coin of himself

Sigh. Well, the Trumpy Bear people can get right on it and conjure up something.
