How the Famous Donald Trump Robe led to Tana & Mike becoming friends.
Mike Rowe Facebook Page “A Most Unusual Announcement Guaranteed to Help Close America’s Skills Gap and Horrify Half the Country.”
As some of you might recall, I auctioned off my ratty old bathrobe several months ago, which raised $8,500 dollars for our scholarship fund. Shortly thereafter, I commented that a better bathrobe, one from Trump Towers Hotel and signed by Donald J. Trump, just might raise enough money to close the skills gap. (I also suggested that a tasteful pantsuit from Hillary Clinton, or a similar bathrobe from President Bill Clinton - either of which would be a most welcome auction item for mikeroweWORKS.)
Well, thanks to the magical synapses of social media, I am now in receipt of a genuine Donald J. Trump bathrobe - hand delivered to me a few weeks ago in Baltimore, by a whirling dervish named Tana Goertz who works for Donald J. Trump. So, here’s the deal mikeroweWORKS is auctioning off a bathrobe from Trump Tower, signed by the man himself. 100% of the proceeds will benefit the mikeroweWORKS.
We’ll accept bids over the next ten days, starting now, and ending Monday, August 1st. Go here to bid. http://www.ebay.com/itm/262539612279
Finally, three quick thoughts.
First, to those voting for Mr. Trump, let me say this. This is not merely a bathrobe; this is a piece of history - the only garment in the world worn by me, and signed by a man who could very likely become the Donald J Trump 45th president of these United States. Regardless of how much you admire Mr. Trump - this thing is going to worth a fortune one day. So, if you wish to reward work-ethic and close America’s skills gap by training people for jobs that actually exist, bid high, bid often, and thanks in advance.
Secondly, to those NOT voting for Mr. Trump, let me say this. This is not merely a bathrobe; this is a piece of history - the only garment in the world worn by me, and signed by a man who could very likely become the 45th President of these United States. Regardless of how much you despise Mr. Trump - this thing is going to be worth a fortune one day. So, if you wish to reward work ethic and close America’s skills gap by training people for jobs that actually exist, bid high, bid often, and thanks in advance.
Thirdly, to those of you who are shocked and appalled that I would call attention to Mr. Trumps candidacy, get over it. This is not an endorsement. This is fundraising, pure and simple. Like Blanche DuBois, my foundation depends upon the kindness of strangers, and closing the skills gap has nothing to do with personal politics - mine or yours. Moreover, if Hillary (or Bill,) actually comes across with a pantsuit, (or a robe,) from their wardrobe in Chappaqua, I’ll auction it off with the same level of enthusiasm and gratitude. I promise.

And let the love fest begin…
