  1. Not once, in my 47 years on this planet, have I bought any type of Presidential merchandise. The commercial for the Trumpy Bear, with orange hair and a flag stuffed inside, made me laugh so hard that I had to change my undies!

  2. In other words, America's presidency has now become a corporation based on a dollar bill. And profits in a bank account. The founder's of the nation would be freaking outraged. Good bye America, Welcome to the Whitehouse Corporation of the United Business Advertising Firm. ( Formerly known as the United States of America and the Whitehouse )
    From Honest Abe, to Dishonest Donald. How times have changed, (good or for worse ) has the direction taken us? Worse would be the answer.
    And just another aspect that is, and will continue to be (out of control ) like everything else is. And no one saying no. Know the outcomes

  3. People who are dumb enough to buy these things deserves to be laughed at. Just don't get butt hurt when people point and laugh and call you stupid.
