In case you were hoping to really cause some strife in your household over the holidays, Donald Trump is now selling a “Make America Great Again” hat Christmas ornament. To hang on your tree. For $149.
Why so expensive? The ornament is made of brass and – get this – finished in 24-karat gold, according to the website. This seems a little too pricey for the average holiday budget, especially coming from a man who is supposed to be representing the middle- and lower-classes. Or did he already forget what the Presidential job description actually entails?
Not to mention, it’s unclear what the funds from this ornament will go to, other than Trump’s own wallet. His campaign run is over, so it’s unusual to introduce new merchandise without any goal in mind. According to the Trump’s team, however, the ornament is meant to be the his contribution to “the Christmas spirit.”
“President-elect Trump loves Christmas and makes a point of proudly saying ‘Merry Christmas’ every chance he gets,” explained the email promoting the ornament to his supporters. “This collectible ornament commemorates Trump’s commitment to the Christmas spirit and will be a great addition to your family’s Christmas tree this year.” It is, according to the website, “sure to make any tree stand out” though you may not want that this holiday season, depending on who your family voted for.
Honestly, Trump selling a Christmas ornament for $150 just reminds me of Lucille Bluth from Arrested Development:
