Everyone is loving this park ranger’s face as he took Donald Trump’s salary donation

After elected, President Donald Trump pledged to donate his entire salary to charity, because he didn’t need the money. Now, he’s making good on that promise.

But the organization he chose raised a few eyebrows.

One of the very first government offices that Donald Trump clashed with was the Department of the Interior, in a kerfuffle over his inauguration crowd size that now seems tame by this administration’s standards.

Perhaps in an effort to soothe things over, Trump made his first salary donation out to the National Park Service. He gifted the service the first quarter of his yearly salary, to the tune of $78,333.

The exchange was broadcast at the beginning of Sean Spicer’s press briefing on Tuesday, and one Twitter user noticed what could very well be considered some incredulity on the face of Harpers Ferry National Historical Park Superintendent Tyrone Brandyburg.

People ate it up.


Admittedly, he probably wasn’t looking a gift horse in the mouth, but it really is hard to wrap your head around the incongruity.
