Emolument Man

Actual title / artist unknown.


And this photo was taken before Cheeto Hitler took office, before most people had even heard of the word, “Emolument”…


Google it yourself, but here’s a thumbnail version:

What, exactly, is the Emoluments Clause?


It is 49 words in Article I of the Constitution.


“No Title of Nobility shall be granted by the United States: And no Person holding any Office of Profit or Trust under them, shall, without the Consent of the Congress, accept of any present, Emolument, Office, or Title, of any kind whatever, from any King, Prince, or foreign State.”
