It's not even Black Friday yet, and the trump Make America Great Again Red Cap Collectible Ornament is selling out, quick. It's about as classy as anything else donald trump has put his name on.
But what's even more impressive than the tackiness and price of this product... is the reviews people are leaving.
First, the customer questions and answers:
Is it really made in China
Of course, like most things bearing the Trump name, in order to spend less money and increase profit, this was mass produced in China

Tinier than whiny little baby hands!

Will this ornament keep all of it's pre-holiday promises?
It's already backing off jailing my Elf on a Shelf.

Hard to say. I mean, if anyone can confirm whether or not this ornament is a liar, that would be an answer worth... I don't know, $25 million, at least.

Only the promise to imprison all blue ornaments. The tree will be protected at all times by a gingerbread wall. The Lollipop Guild will pay for that wall. The wall will be decorated with white icing ONLY.

Where is this manufactured?
Dum Gai, China.

Next are the actual reviews. They're worth perusing in their entirety, but here are some of my favorites:
Hilarious. You should get on Amazon and read these reviews.
A parting thought:
According to Malcolm Gladwell's amazing podcast, satire doesn't work. While it's funny, it's not an effective way to promote social change or change minds. Among many reasons for this is the False Consensus Effect, or the human tendency to overestimate the degree to which others agree with us.
When we watch satire, democrats think republicans are being mocked, and republicans think democrats are being mocked.
That said. Humor is good for us. Laughter heals. We could all use a little healing right now -- and when it doesn't come in the form of laughter, it can come in the form of distraction. Don't sit around and ruminate. Don't cancel classes so people can cope. Present fun, new, funny, or challenging material, so people can get their minds off of things.
Go have a laugh. Listen to that podcast. Follow my blog on Facebook. And make some epic holiday plans. Just... maybe pick a different ornament for your tree.
