This is golden.
Rubber pee-proof sheets, KKK hoods and Russian flags were spotted among the items for sale in Trump Tower’s gift shop this week.
According to Gothamist, a New York-based news outlet, two local artists slipped the satirical items into the store located in the lobby of the president’s namesake Manhattan building on Monday afternoon. Aside from the sheets, flags and white hoods that were marketed to “fine people,” other items that mocked Donald Trump there were also postcards that featured Vladimir Putin and honored “First Lady Ivanka Trump,” the site reports.
Gothamist checked to see if the items were still in the store on Tuesday, and they were, as you can see from the video above.
The store, however, caught wind of the prank when reporters attempted to buy an item. After the discovery, the reporters were promptly kicked out of the store. When they returned an hour later, all the parody merchandise was removed.
“We thought the tourists coming in to buy some stuff, especially people from other countries, should get the whole story of who the president is, because the items in the Trump store don’t accurately reflect the person,” one of the two pranksters, who asked to remain anonymous, told Gothamist.
