Candy bars are one of the cheapest sources of junk food, costing about a buck or so.
Drugs do not cost a dollar, and Twitter was quick to point out that the president came across as an out-of-touch billionaire offering a nickel for a shoe shine.
If you have these cheap candy bar drugs, please, please @ me

If drugs were as cheap as a candy bar, there wouldn’t be much money to be made selling drugs.

For real, though. I know there are tons of perks to being president, but is this one of them? Someone let me know because I will definitely start getting more involved in politics if that’s the case.
