Money really does change everything.

Thanks to efgoldman for the tip.

Mr Trump introduced the New York Jets owner as “the ambassador Woody Johnson, going to Saint James”, during a luncheon in Washington.

The 69-year-old billionaire philanthropist and scion of the Johnson & Johnson pharmaceutical giant has known Mr Trump for many years.

But he originally backed Trump rival Jeb Bush in the Republican primary.

“Congratulations, Woody,” said Mr Trump in the presidential ballroom of Trump International hotel in Washington DC, on the eve of his swearing in as the 45th US president.

[…]

Like many big-money donors, Johnson was an early supporter of Governor Jeb Bush’s presidential campaign – and was once cited by Donald Trump as an example of how the former Florida governor was in the thrall of big-money interests. Mr Trump even fired off a tweet mocking the Jets’ lack of postseason success.

Don’t worry Jets fan, I’m sure the team will stay put.
