The American people have been so fortunate to elect Donald Trump as the 45th President of the United States, and to show his gratitude for the electorate’s stupidity the failed businessman has made available for sale a Christmas tree ornament of his “Make American Great Again” hat for the very affordable price of only $149! What a bargain!
Trump’s team has been hawking this glorious item with much enthusiasm, while knowing the far majority of Americans will be unable to afford it. One Trump staffer said, “President-elect Trump loves Christmas and makes a point of proudly saying ‘Merry Christmas’ every chance he gets.”
Denizens of the Internet have taken notice of Trump’s generous offer and have bombarded his cheaply made, 14 karat gold finished, trinket available on Amazon.com with hundreds of negative reviews that range from hostile to outright hilarious.

Every time I try to hang it on the branch, it yells ‘WRONG!’ No matter which branch I try, it’s ‘WRONG!’ My brother and father can hang it up just fine, but when my mother and I try, it’s just ‘WRONG! WRONG! WRONG!
Another individual whose user name is “A. Flowerson” was particularly pleased with the ornament and its ability to make their Christmas experience more than it could have been without Trump’s bauble:
This ornament has bigly potential. YUGE. it’ll make your tree great. very great. it’ll do great things for your tree. great things.
Some areas of the country which voted for Trump also have the lowest median incomes in the nation, and the cost of this ornament would equal nearly a full week worth of their labor. This is the America which Trump promised throughout the course of his campaign. One where cheaply made goods are sold at exorbitant rates to those who can’t afford them, but will buy them anyway because they do not know any better. This obliviousness is part of the American electorate’s charm.
