Of the myriad ways to express disappointment with the outcome of the 2016 election, detractors are finding a clever outlet to attack Donald Trump and the Trump brand: Amazon.
Tricky Internet jokesters are inundating the review page for a pair of Ivanka Trump’s bootswith 1-star posts, conspicuously threading their punny political opinions throughout.
“Every time I tried to express my opinions, I was horrified to find myself bellowing, “HEIL TRUMP!” one use wrote. “Very embarrassing.”
“BUYER BEWARE!” another warned. “These boots are some sort of port key or wrinkle in the space time continuum. I put them on and I was transported back to Berlin in 1933.”
Some of the comments worked in references to Trump’s comments that he would date his daughter were she not, you know, his daughter, with one review titled, “These boots will make your dad want to ^&%& you.”
“Did you ever feel like crap because your dad hasn’t told the world he’d be ‘dating’ you if you weren’t his daughter?” the review asks. “Just slip into these hot, stylish boots with sexy high heels to get Daddy’s attention and praise for your hot bod — if he’s not too busy grabbing other women (those *&^*%s!) (or America) by the p——!”
Others suggested the boots “were made for walking your a** right back to the 19th century,” or argued, “these boots might fit a person that is male, straight, white and Christian.”
While most of those hijacking the Amazon reviews was by Trump naysayers, some supporters were quick to rate the shoes in a more—flattering—light. “Boots won, Birkenstocks lost,” one post read. “Get over it.”
