I had my doubts that this was a real product when I saw the twitter discuss a commercial which played yesterday on Fox. So, I Googled.

A stuffed animal called "Trumpy Bear" is a real product available for purchase.

A bombastic, over-the-top commercial has left some TV viewers and internet users baffled by the authenticity of Trumpy Bear, a 22-inch stuffed animal with a striking resemblance to the 45th President of the United States.

“The fearless, super-plush American grizzly,” is how a booming male voiceover describes Trumpy Bear in a two-minute commercial first posted to YouTube in July 2017. “Even the toughest guys will love Trumpy Bear,” the voice continues, as a woman is shown carefully tending to Trumpy’s blond combover and red tie, which accompanies cuffs, collars and cuff-links to make up his immaculate corporate outfit.

We have received several enquiries from readers about whether Trumpy Bear is a real product or — as one reader described it — just “great satire.”

Trumpy Bear is real.

I have no idea what else to say. :(

Yeah that thing has been around for a while, when I first saw it I thought it was an SNL skit, but I also looked it up and the website sure looks legit.

I'm sure several of the regulars on here have them sitting on their propaganda desks already...

The existence of the "Trumpy Bear" doesn't surprise me. Americans bought "Pet Rocks," "Mood Rings," and apparently still buy "Chia Pets."

Well, that you did Google to confirm the legitimacy of something you heard/read suggests strongly that you are not a Trumpkin for intellectual curiosity is simply not a trait they exhibit.

Double standard. No surprise.

How's that? One is free speech; the other is disrespectful appropriation for profit.

I love you, Ap. I really do.

Conservatives have been treating the flag as a fashion accessory since forever. Not proper in my opinion, but taste is out of style these days.
