Surely selling inauguration merchandise is nothing new, but in true Donald J. Trump fashion, the Trump Make America Great Again Committee (it really flows off the tongue, doesn't it?) is taking the 45th President's merch game to the next level with beer-related memorabilia to help viewers swallow the fact that this is all, in fact, really happening.
While the official White House Gift Shop is selling ordinary president-elect related items like Trump-Pence buttons, dad hats, and bobbleheads, the official Donald J. Trump web shop is hawking a treasure trove of culturally elite items including pint glasses, beer koozies, and even red plastic party cups.
Twenty-five dollars will get you a set of two official inauguration 16-ounce pint glasses, “an exclusive commemorative inauguration item,” adorned with a seal reading “Inauguration of President and Vice President 2017.” (It is worth noting that shaker pints like these are not suitable vessels for beer drinking anyway, should you need another reason not to purchase these. – Ed.)
For 20 dollars, you’ll get an assortment of red, white, and blue Trump koozies (a pack of six), featuring the official 45th presidential logo and the frightening phrase “Trump U.S.A.”
20 bucks will also score you our personal favorite, the 4-pack of inauguration party cups, essentially a red Solo cup lookalike inscribed in cursive with “Donald J. Trump,” along with the date of inauguration, January 20, 2017.
Of course, all three items are “Proudly Made in the USA.” If you’re feeling nostalgic, you can always return to the White House Gift Store where Obama merch is still available.
