Some people put together a website for a Trump Library and, without an ounce of hyperbole, it’s utterly magnificent for the detail and work that went into it. The meticulous craft is stunning – mainly the sections on Exhibits, the Hall of Enablers, and Grift Shop – but even down to throwaway links at the bottom of the page for normal things like “Info/Press” and “FAQ” and “Hotel/Dining” as well as the related venues of the “Covid Memorial” and “Alt-Right Auditorium.”
It’s not just that there’s a page for each of these things, but the whole thing is designed like a real museum. And beautifully designed. And extensive, almost too much to make your way through. The Donations page, which I thought would be very funny, is actually the only serious thing I found with links for donating to liberal causes, including Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock.
But it’s the details that are so remarkable. And sometimes to subtle that you occasionally need a closer look to spot the joke. For instead, my eyes skirted past the Admissions section initially, but itt's only when I crossed by it a third time that I noticed –
Adults (Citizens): $25
Adults (Seniors): $10
Adults (Immigrants): $50
Children & Students: free
For the longest time I had no idea who made this. I still don't exactly, but I burrowed around and found some clues in the FAQ, and it turns out that the people behind it are an architectural firm in New York City. But they don't give their name. However, if one is interested in doing business with them, there is a link to follow-up with them. Beyond their scathing sense of humor, they clearly know how to design...
There's much too much here to go through it all at one sitting. But at least do yourself a favor to check it out and see that they put together and spend at least a couple minutes wandering through and admiring the craft. Even if you just go to the home page and do nothing but let the screen shots change, it will be worth it.
You can find the "Trump Library" here.
