Just in Time for Xmas — The Trumpy Bear

You want to feel sorry for Trump supporters getting ripped off for a $40 stuffed animal, but after watching the pure happiness depicted in the ad for a Trumpy Bear, the pity evaporates. Let the MAGA folks waste their disability checks if they so desire. The rest of us can look for the discarded bears in the trash and “play” with them accordingly.

The Trumpy Bear comes with hair like its namesake that can be brushed lovingly, a secret compartment for an American flag facsimile blanket (can someone explain the word, “desecration” to these folks?), and a certificate of authenticity, which buyers will want to frame and hang on their wall, just under the portrait of Trump, Palin, Nugent and Kid Rock at the White House.

Hurry, supplies — like the days left in our democracy — are limited.

Trump Thumped: Dems’ Net Gain in the House Is Biggest Since 1976

Don’t be like the “liberal media” and fall for Trump’s BS. He and the GOP took a thumpin’ and a shellacking on Tuesday. According to the Brookings institute, the Democrats’ net gain in the U.S. House of Representatives was the largest since Pres. Jimmy Carter was elected in 1976.

Ivanka Trump Gets China Trademark Approval for Voting Booths

Reuters reported today that China has issued 16 trademarks for President Trump’s daughter Ivanka in the past two months — including one for voting machines!

The group Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington made the findings about the new China trademarks in a Monday statement, and said it was the largest number of new Chinese trademarks her company has received in a single month since her father took office.

The latest China trademarks cover things like shoes and jewelry, but also more offbeat items like voting machines and nursing homes, according to a search of records on the Chinese State Administration for Industry and Commerce’s Trademark office.

The trademarks were applied for in 2016.

Which got me thinking, what would an ad campaign for a Trump-branded voting booth look like, which inspired me to write a little advertising copy:

Voiceover: Deep female voice with indistinct Eastern European accent

Welcome to the IvankaBooth!

Snuggle into your own private political space where it’s just you and the last dog whistle or overt racist remark echoing in your head.

Settle into your plush, golden surroundings and focus on which vote suppressor or media attacker you’re casting your ballot for in the intimate confines of your IvankaBooth, where it’s just you and God and your uneducated, uninformed, misinformed and misogynistic beliefs in the pursuit of your inalienable right to vote for the demagogue of your choice.

IvankaBooth — it’s where YOU make history happen!
