People Are Trademarking the Shit Out of Donald Trump Merchandise

Donald Trump might be the worst thing that’s happened to modern America, but at least he made some T-shirt manufacturers a few bucks along the way. Enterprising folks have rushed to the patent and trademark office with their Trump slogans (both pro and con), and they’re plastering them on every knick-knack, coffee mug, and tchotchke they can find.

From Trump the Wailing Wall™ wax statues, to Love Trumps Hate™ t-shirts, there’s definitely a market for anti-Trump merchandise. But there’s certainly room for plenty of pro-Trump trademarks as well. People have trademarked TRUMP FOR PRESIDENT - TRAMP FOR PRISONER™ (and who says there’s still sexism in politics?), Trumpocrat™ bandanas, and TRUMPUBLICAN™ T-shirts.

Below I’ve compiled just some of the trademarks that have been registered with the US Patent and Trademark Office in recent months about Trump. And don’t worry, we’ll take a look at Clinton’s tomorrow.
