A very shiny red hat with ‘MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN’ plastered on the front is selling as a collectable Christmas tree ornament on Amazon for. At US$250 it’s made of brass, but finished in 14-karat gold. It comes in an equally shiny gold box with black, velour padding. rn
Like any brand, article or item relating to Trump this month, the little ornament has become highly politicised, with 97 comments and a 1.3-star rating out of five.

I’m trying to make the best of it
By Shinga on November 23, 2016
I didn’t actually order this but somehow it’s on my tree anyway. I’m trying to make the best of it… at least that’s what people are telling me to do. But I don’t know. I’m trying, but there’s suddenly swastikas painted on my other decorations, half of my presents are just dog s***, and the tree itself is on fire. But my conservative friends are telling me the fire is a good thing and I should just be united in celebrating what this ornament has to offer. They’re also saying I need to leave the tree in my house for four to eight years. That doesn’t sound right. Source?
Please make this ornament stop tweeting

This ornament keeps tweeting at 3 a.m., demanding apologies from the casts of various Broadway musicals. For what, I don’t know. You’d think now that the Christmas season has officially arrived, the three is up, and the stockings are hung, this ornament would finally get serious about being an ornament and doing the things an ornament ought to do–you know, stuff like hanging on the tree, looking merry and bright, and not destroying the Republic in its quest to satiate an unquenchable thirst for power. But no such luck. It just keeps tweeting and tweeting and tweeting. I’m not even sure how it manages to use a phone for such time-wasting endeavors, given how microscopic its teeny-tiny, wee little hands are.
Very strange. I’d like to return this, but I hear it will take an act of Congress to do so, and in any case, I’m not sure the backup ornament I’m stuck with is any better. It keeps trying to electrocute me.

Despite ordering a more reasonable ornament, this one arrived. It. Is. Yuge. It’s absolutely yuge. It’s the biggest ornament. Yuge.
I hung it on my tree, but it is so yuge that it has totally unbalanced my whole tree. No matter where I hang it, the tree leans waaaaaay over to the far right.
