Presumably to dig us out of this massive deficit, the government is auctioning a former Air Force One plane, which it will probably replace with another Air Force One plane that's newer and 10x more expensive. You know, I wish we could choose where our tax dollars went because I'd want mine just flushed down the shitter and the video broadcast over the internet.
It's not often we get to sell a piece of history like this, but GSA Auctions is selling this plane that flew Presidents Ford, Carter, Reagan, Bush, Clinton & Bush (as well as the Vice-President, First Lady, Cabinet secretaries, 4-star generals, admirals, foreign dignitaries and more).
Fun fact: did you know a plane is technically only referred to as Air Force One if there's a president aboard? Otherwise it's just a fancy plane. Fast forward to some crappy comedy flick about a dumb but lovable president stepping on and off the plane yelling, "Air Force One, regular plane! Air Force One, regular plane!" When I close my eyes I see Adam Sandler or one of the Wayans brothers.
Thanks to E V I L A R E S, who's so evil he's plotting how he can take over the world from 35,000-feet even as we speak.
