Trumpy Bear? Come on!



In 1991 I bought a Dan Quayle watch, but they weren't being sold to "honor" Dan Quayle.  This has got to be brilliant snark, right?  Right?

I mean, it uses every cliche from every Collector Plate/Prayer Coin/Authentic Replica WWII Watch commercial ever, right down to the ancient codger telling us that he is "proud to own this bear, and proud to be an American."  Heck, it might even be the SAME vet who told us that he was proud to own the Not-Actually-WWII-era aviator-style watch and was "proud to be an American."

I mean, I know this is an incredibly stupid country populated by mouth-breathers (look how 46 percent of us voted last time around) but this can't be real, can it?  Or if it is, and someone will actually answer that phone number and there's a factory in It's Pronounced JINA making these things, this concept was put together by someone with a PhD in Cynicism?

This can't be the brainchild of someone who actually LIKES Trump, can it?

    1. There seems to be an unlimited number of vets out there willing to say "I endorse this product, and I love America." I think in the one for the WWII Aviator watch he says "I endorse this product, and I always stand for the Pledge of Allegiance," but same difference.

    2. They. Have. To. Be, Kidding.

      And Corporal Frank Warholic?? Really????

      It's so over the top that I can't help but wonder whether all Trumpy Bear profits are secretly being funneled by its creator into a war chest to elect Democratic candidates...or something to counter this cult madness.

  3. It certainly wouldn't be the first time that pandering to PT Barnum's dream audience made fat stacks for someone who couldn't give a rat's ass about the subject matter.

    After the last campaign I saw an interview with a few kids who were pulling in tens of thousands a day coming up with clickbait rants about hillary/obama. They had admitted to not giving a rat's ass about the election. There was just an obvious, highly motivated demographic that they could manipulate for cash.

    And then there's Alex Jones...which brings us back to the venerable Mr. Barnum who said "Nobody ever went broke underestimating the American people"
