Stephen Colbert Creates Fake Ad for Trump Halloween Merchandise
The 'Late Show' host was inspired by Trump's "Make America Great Again" pumpkin hat to joke that one could buy other spooky items associated with the administration.
Stephen Colbert was inspired by President Donald Trump's Halloween hat to make a fake ad for that and other spooky merchandise associated with the current administration.
In a pre-recorded clip that aired at the beginning of Tuesday night's Late Show, a spooky narrator pokes fun at the MAGA pumpkin hat that recently sold out on the president’s official website. The hat features Trump’s slogan “Make America Great Again” on the back, while the front is decorated with the face of a jack-o-lantern. The narrator notes that “any likeness to President Trump is not intended.” It is then explained that this particular piece of merchandise will scare your friends because it will reveal that “you support a man who said there were some good Nazis.”
Colbert took it upon himself to create more Trump-inspired Halloween merchandise, including the remains of the GOP health care bills, the shrunken head of “ghoulish” Attorney General Jeff Sessions and a white cat.
The narrator also claims one can buy the iconic twins costume from The Shining, which is modeled by Trump's son's Eric and Donald Jr.
