Please do not buy Trumpy Bear as an ironic gag gift for Christmas, okay?

Kim Kardashian arrives at What Goes Around Comes Around for 25th anniversary party

People swear up and down that “Trumpy Bear” has been around for a year, but I swear, this is the first I’m seeing it? Trump Bear is what you see here, in these screencaps. Apparently, it’s a real thing. Someone – the company Exceptional Products – decided to design a stuffed bear with a bad, cheap weave and no pants and they named it Trumpy Bear. It’s made in China, and there’s an American flag stuffed in it too??? How did I miss this, and why is this commercial made like a Saturday Night Live spoof?

Please, if you get a Trumpy Bear, release the American flag from its butt and then there will be space for you to barf into Trumpy Bear. I feel like there are so many bad design choices here – for one, AS IF Trumpy Bear should be this dark shade of brown. The real Trumpy Bear would be an ungodly shade of orange. TRUMPY BEAR BROWNFACE. Also: Trumpy Bear needs more FUPA for me to recognize it as Trump-like. We’re also going to need a disclaimer on that ad: “Trumpy Bear will become very low-energy when it rains.” #TrumpyBearIsALie

Can you even imagine how deranged people are these days? Which reminds me – the MAGA hat is bad enough, and lord knows, there are people who wear that fakakta hat “ironically,” but do you even think that faux hipsters would even get this cross-eyed, be-wigged bear for ironic hipness? Is this the new dumb gag gift this Christmas? Please, don’t. Don’t waste your money on this sh-t. The Cut points out that the designer of the Trump Bear is named V.L. Lange, who says that Trumpy Bear is a “symbol that anyone can run for president of this great country of ours” and it is “not a joke.”

    But he’s brown. The real Trump seems to hate anything brown…should’ve been orange. There are dumba$$es that will buy it for sure.

  2. Lightpurple says:

    The thing costs more than $40, is made in China, is ugly when bears should be cute, and poops the flag. That money could buy a fun night out of dinner and a movie while contributing to the local economy.

  3. Va Va Kaboom says:

    What the f$&@ did I just watch? That’s NOT an SNL skit… are you sure?

  4. Save Mueller says:

    I saw a commercial for this about 2 moths ago and absolutely thought it was a joke until it gave the ordering information! ! It was on late at night, one of the regular broadcast channels that shows old reruns.

  5. Lady D says:

    Forty freaking dollars for that dollar store knock-off?

  6. Esmom says:

    I couldn’t believe this when I saw it either. I don’t know anyone who buy this ironically, it’s just too ghastly.

    A Beto bear? I could maybe snuggle up to one of those, lol. Not that I want anyone to actually design a Beto bear.

    • ...otaku fairy says:

      Neither could I. The first time I saw commercials for these things was around December of last year.

    • Frida_K says:

      I’ll take a Cory Booker bear, thank you very much. I could get into some snuggling with a Cory Booker bear. Beto is cute, but Cory is much more my type.

    Somebody has lost it completely! 🤡

  8. Veronica S. says:

    Yeah, that video just screams Nazi propaganda, to be honest.

    “A storm is coming…you cannot defeat the storm.”

    Friendly reminder that the original Nazi paramilitary force was called Sturmabteilung, i.e. Storm Detachment. That’s actually where the term “stormtrooper” comes from. Their (highly successful) invasion technique was called blitzkrieg, “lightning war.” So beware any Trump supporter who tells you “the storm is coming.”

    Hubby watches a lot of retro TV (MeTV), and they have been advertising this thing for about two years now. How do I remember? Hubby threatens to buy one for me every time the commercial comes on. I told him that’s a cheap way to a divorce!! LOL

    Needs a diaper!

  11. Alarmjaguar says:

    Please, don’t buy it. It will only encourage them!

  12. sa says:

    I saw the commercial a few times last spring on the YES network, at first I thought it was a joke and couldn’t figure it out. I googled it and there was a whole snopes page about it, because apparently I wasn’t the only one who couldn’t figure out if it was a joke or not.

  13. Harryg says:

    This is just hysterical. Hey, maybe they have a series of all dictators!

  14. Snowflake says:

    Oh there’s a board game out now for kids where you can build the wall! Disgusting and yes i’m serious

  15. Belle Epoch says:

    Do people think they are supporting Trump by buying this this? There’s not a peep about donating to his campaign (fine with me!). I wonder who is making all the money?

  16. Eric says:

    Trumpy Bear isn’t going to be near the hit as Indictment Bunny will be.

    Strap in people, it’s going to be “raining” indictments soon!

  17. RBC says:

    Paws are too big

  18. The Recluse says:

    Because reducing to and using the American Flag as a blanket is just so respectful. Just so freaking tacky.

  19. KMK says:

    That thing has been around for over a year. I saw a commercial for it on regular tv programming on a channel that shows mostly Westerns (go figure).

    I confess to buying my Uncle a George Bush “Mission Accomplished” action figure for Christmas one year but those were simpler times and G.I. George was pretty awesome.
