As the 2016 presidential race gets underway, one aspect of the election that’s quite possibly more entertaining than the 22-horse race itself are the different campaign products dreamed up by various candidates. Forget buttons… Bernie Sanders has his own brand of hot sauce, and Jeb Bush wants to sell you a $75 guacamole bowl.But we had to do a double take when we saw the latest campaign goodie from Donald Trump: a red plastic Solo-esque cup emblazoned with Trump’s name and motto, Make America Great Again.
For just $20 for a three-pack, you can fill your 16-ounce American cup with your all-American beer and ponder how “great” (or not) America could be with Mr. Trump in office. And yes, according to the product description, it is proudly made in the USA. You can also buy a three-pack of blue beer koozies from Trump’s campaign website.
While Trump seems to be fond of the casual consumption of beer, the other leading candidates tend to shy away from the frat brother constituency, opting for more adult vessels. On Hillary Clinton’s website, you can buy a set of plastic tumblers, and on Ted Cruz’s site, you can get a coffee mug.
