Can’t these people leave my state out of this kind of bullshit?

A week-long “dream hunt” with the US president’s son Donald Trump Jr is being auctioned at an annual trophy hunting convention in Reno, Nevada alongside expeditions to shoot elephants, bears and giraffes.
The four-day event organized by Safari Club International (SCI) and advertised as a “hunters’ heaven”, will culminate on Saturday with an auction for a week-long Sitka black-tailed deer hunt in Alaska with Trump Jr, his son and a guide. At the time of writing, bidding for the yacht-based expedition stands at $10,000 (£7,685).
Other prizes include the chance to shoot an elephant on a 14-day trip in Namibia, an all-inclusive hunt package to Zimbabwe to kill buffalo, giraffe and wildebeest, and a 10-day crocodile hunting expedition in South Africa. The proceeds from the auction, which campaigners say could exceed $5m, will fund SCI’s “hunter advocacy and wildlife conservation efforts”, according to the organization.
Thousands of hunters from around the world are expected to attend the convention which begins on Wednesday, where Trump Jr, an avid trophy hunter, is set to give a keynote address.
Great now this Cheechako will be tromping through our pristine wilderness with an entourage of Secret Service agents trying to hunt down one of our indigenous creatures in the vain hope of finally feeling like a man.
If he wants to feel like a man perhaps he should finally stand up to his father.
Here’s a happy thought, Alaska is a treacherous place for out of staters so there is a chance that Junior might not emerge from the woods in one piece.
Don’t get me wrong I don’t want him to die, but a snapped femur, gunshot wound, animal attack, or a bad case of hypothermia does not seem unreasonable.
