Fox News Aired An Appalling Ad For A Trump Teddy Bear & The Internet’s Losing It

Just when you thought the Trump presidency couldn’t get any more bizarre comes news of Trumpy Bear – a stuffed replica teddy of the president that comes with the famous quiff, red tie, and even allows users to to pull the US flag out of the animal’s rectum.

And in better news, Trumpy Bear even comes with his very own commercial that – as you’ll discover below – could possible be the worst thing ever created in the history of advertising.

And, yes, the whole thing’s not even a prank. Trumpy Bear is the brainchild of a chap called Elliott Brackett, who’s reportedly making a small fortune from selling the stuffed toy for $US40 ($A55) to Trump loyalists.

Brackett confirming that Trumpy Bear is “not a joke” and that it “should be viewed as the symbol that anyone can run for president of this great country of ours.”

What makes it even more ironic is that the bear is both brown and made in China!

And Trumpy Bear has made the big time after the awful ad aired during primetime on Fox News, giving the toy immediate social media cachet and even getting parodied by none other than James Corden and Jimmy Kimmel on their respective TV shows.

Check out some of Trumpy Bear’s select social media feedback below:
