Fresh from a brief but memorable non-excursion into the quagmire of American politics, Celebrity Apprentice host and videogame legend Donald Trump has embarked on a speaking engagement in Australia. And according to a report by Australian website news.com.au, he’ll be hosting a “private, closed reception” reserved for people Trump refers to as “business leaders.” Specifically, business leaders who are willing to pay at least $10,000 for the chance to breathe the same air as The Donald. In a form letter, Trump describes this event not merely as a party, but as “a catalyst that can spark greater things — you’ll be considering the influence this experience can have on the course of the rest of your life.”

PopWatchers, how much would you pay to awkwardly sip extremely expensive cocktails with Donald Trump? Actually, what’s the highest sum you would pay to meet anyone? I think I’d pay $20,000 to have lunch with David Milch, but only if he promised to hypnotize me by talking about John From Cincinnati.
