Spooky season has come to an end, and unfortunately, I only got to watch snippets of my beloved Halloween movie, “Hocus Pocus.”
However, President Donald J. Trump made up for it by immersing himself in the season and timelessness of the movie with new merchandise.
Now, aside from Trump’s famous Make America Great Again (MAGA) hat, Barack Obama also sold merchandise from cat collars, to shot glasses and, of course, t-shirts with his “Yes We Can” slogan printed on them.
Michelle Obama, though not a presidential candidate also has her own merchandise featuring her book, status, and last name, “Becoming Michelle Obama.”
Long story short, famous people know how to maximize their profits and name. We all know Trump always been a businessman, so it only makes sense that he would find a way to maximize his profits on the “witch hunt” happening right now, also known as impeachment proceedings because of his telephone-call transcript with the leader of Ukraine.
At first, when I saw the advertisements for the new merchandise, I thought it was fake news, but no. Trump has actually featured a limited edition “Hocus Pocus” themed flag and t-shirt on his official campaign website.
The new merchandise features the faces of “Shifty Schiff” (Adam Schiff), “Nervous Nancy” (Nancy Pelosi), and “Democrat Hack Jerry” (Jerry Nadler) on the bodies of the three witch sisters from “Hocus Pocus,” along with Trump’s famous slogan, “Stop the Witch-Hunt” in bold lettering above.
Below the faces of Trump’s opposers, he can be seen flying over Washington monuments with an American flag in his hand. The t-shirt is sold for $30 and the flag goes for $24.
Even though spooky season is over for most people, Adam Schiff, Nancy Pelosi, and Jerry Nadler, along with the rest of Trump’s opposers, (*cough cough* AOC) will be having nightmares for years to come, and those who have the merchandise will remember the most underappreciated president in American history.
