The rivalry between the Giants and the Jets is getting political.

On the heels of news that Giants owner Jonathan Tisch is throwing Hillary Clinton a $33,000-per-head fundraiser in the Hamptons this summer, Jets owner Woody Johnson has signed up to host his own fundraiser for Donald Trump. And one of real estate’s biggest names is co-hosting the event — Douglas Elliman TRData LogoTINY chief Howard Lorber, who donated $100,000 to Trump’s campaign earlier this year.

Tickets for the GOP party, to be held at Johnson’s East Hampton estate, are going for $10,000 to $25,000, the New York Post reported.

Real estate mogul Peter Kalikow and investor Anthony Scaramucci are expected to attend the August 18 bash.

Earlier this summer, Johnson and Trump pal Richard LeFrak threw the GOP candidate a fundraiser at the Southampton estate of billionaire Wilbur Ross. [NYP]E.B. Solomont
