#ThatsBaller – JFK’s Artwork Auctioned For More Than $160,000, About Eight Times More Than Trump’s Drawing

Donald Trump has taken yet another “L” in his failing presidency. Sad! According to TMZ, in the presidential art auction battle between John F. Kennedy and Trump, the 35th president won by a landslide.

On Saturday, an oil painting from 1955 sold at Heritage Auctions’ Americana and Political Memorabilia auction for $162,500. The painting, which was painted and signed by JFK, and hung in the Hickory Hill home of Robert F. Kennedy, beat out Trump’s drawing by $142,500.

Trump’s sketch of the NYC skyline, which was donated to charity in 2005, sold for a much lower amount of $20,000. Although artwork by U.S. presidents is in high demand among collectors, according to Heritage Auctions director Tom Slater, Trump’s drawing didn’t bring out much of a crowd.
