The news has been so full of tragedy, that I was pleased to find an item virtually guaranteed to put a smile on your face. Thanks to progressive pranksters, the gift shop in the Temple of Greed, aka Trump Towers, briefly offered items appropriate to the true character of Putin’s Piddle Puppet and his Republican Reich.
Ku Klux Klan hoods and urine-proof bed sheets were for sale at Trump Tower’s gift shop this week.
According to local news outlet Gothamist, two pranksters slipped the satirical merchandise into Manhattan’s Trump Tower on Monday.
The fake merchandise included a KKK hood “for fine people,” packages of urine-proof rubber sheets, a Russian “Trump” flag, and a postcard featuring Putin as the 45th President of the United States, among other things.
Gothamist checked to see if the items were still available on Tuesday — and they were.
But clerks at the store apparently caught on to the prank after Gothamist tried to buy the items. The reporters were promptly ordered out of the store. Within an hour, all the items appeared to have been removed…
As soon as s stopped laughing, I thought about it, and think this has to be one of the most creative acts of protest in my memory. Kudos!
