If you’ve already secured the gold Trump presidential coin for your racist uncle and are in need of a gift for your misogynistic brother-in-law, look no further than “Trumpy Bear,” a plush, toupee-wearing grizzly that’s sure to bring him holiday cheer.
For proof, just watch the “Trumpy Bear” commercial, which features several people un-ironically extolling the virtues of the Trump-like stuffed animal. One former marine says he’s “proud” to have “Trumpy Bear” ride by his side on a motorcycle. A golfer insists the bear “makes his golf game great again.”
If the video seems like a spoof to you, you’re not alone. Questions regarding the stuffed animal’s authenticity have plagued “Trumpy Bear” since it was first released this summer. But, the bear’s creator told CNN it’s a legit item meant to commemorate Donald Trump.
The plus teddy with a penchant for nationalism, sexism, racism and xenophobia can be yours for two easy payments of $19.95 (plus shipping and handling).
Watch the commercial below:
Seth Meyers plays hilarious fictional Democratic debate — featuring all 20 candidates on stage at the same time
The host of NBC's "Late Night with Seth Meyers" thought his network did a good job hosting the first round of Democratic debates among 2020 hopefuls, but his "one complaint" was that there weren't enough candidates on stage.
The rules established by the Democratic National Committee required NBC to host two nights of debates, with ten candidates on the stage each night.
Meyers wanted all twenty, so he presented Late Night's version of the debates, where Meyers would pretend to moderate the debate and then splice out-of-context video of the candidates to make it appear as if they were answering his question.
Trump’s China tariffs won’t even pay for the bailout to farmers hurt by his trade war
The revenues raised by President Trump’s tariffs on China are not even enough to cover the cost of bailing out farmers hit hardest by his trade war.
“We’ve taken in tens of billions of dollars in tariffs from China,” Trump told reporters Monday. He previously vowed that he would raise so much money from the tariffs that it would eliminate the entire national debt. But the New York Times reports that Customs and Border Protection data shows that the tariffs have raised about $20.8 billion in revenue. That is far less than the $28 billion in bailout funds that Trump vowed to give farmers after China imposed steep retaliatory tariffs targeting the agriculture industry. So far the administration has not offered any bailouts to other industries that have suffered sharp revenue losses in the ongoing trade war.
Don Lemon flabbergasted by brazen lying by Republican Kris Kobach: ‘He lied to your face’
CNN anchors Don Lemon and Chris Cuomo had a heart-to-heart conversation about racism in America during the handoff between their shows on Tuesday.
"What’s going on with you? I saw you in the makeup room. Your energy is off. You seem down. Is this getting to you, what happened today? With what the president tweeted and how people are reacting?" Lemon asked his colleague.
"Is it getting to me? It hits close to home, to be honest. My grandparents were afraid of people like Trump. Ironically, they grew up very close to one another," Cuomo answered, recounting his family's story of seeking acceptance in America. "It hits close to home."
