Jimmie Kimmel's "Shocking" Discovery About Trump Merchandise

Submitted by: holygod 10 months ago in Entertainment Funny Misc Weird


A huge part of Trump's appeal, message, and policy is America First. American goods. American services. American made. Do you think he practices what he preaches?

zeegrr According to Trump, you can't prove he paid an American porn star either. His lawyer paid her off out of the kindness of his heart.

Where do I get a lawyer like that?

Here's an idea: Why don't all you Americans buy only American made products? If that's impossible, put away 50% in a "swear jar" that is emptied once a year and used to pay down whatever is the highest yielding form of debt you have?

Meh, not surprising.  Nor are the reasons simple for manufacturing in China as there are a variety of why it's good, and why it's not.  In the end it's about buying goods cheap and selling them high to make a buck.

Same thing with Harley Davidson touting their "USA!!!" stance, then you pull a $120.00 button down short sleeve off the rack and its made in China.  Done.

melcervini Do you want to pay $45 for the shirt or $145?

Do you shop at walmart or target? Do you have any idea how expensive it would be to shop at walmart if al the items were made in America?

I'm sure companies would much rather get their goods made in america, but consumers won't pay for it.

I saw a pickup truck with a giant "BUY AMERICAN" bumper sticker in a walmart parking lot. People only want to you to "buy american" in the industry they work in, but they'll shop for the best price on everything else.

holygod Thats the odd thing, a goodly number of "american" cars are made in mexico.

When you are buying a car, you have to decide if you wanna pay the blue collars (where its made) or the white collars (where its designed) cause rarely can you do both.

holygod I wont pay 145 IF the company is claiming pro-USA and making slave money from another country.  If it was actually made by a US company?  You're damn right I'd pay that price.  Plus, I try to always go out of my way to support the 'mom and pops' first.

holygod plants vs zombies fluffy pj pants that I got for christmas and the only thing that I can read on the tag is the 'popcap' tm, (I can only assume these were made in china?  no idea) and a fruit of the loom tank made in el salvador that I picked up at a second-hand store.

melcervini So you're saying that you wear fruit of the loom tank tops from second hand stores but you would gladly spend $145 on a shirt if was made in the U.S.A.? Do you see how that is kind of contradictory?

holygod I ran across it and liked it. I can't always afford things like a $145 shirt, thus why I *try* to support when I can.

We just have to make things made in China seem exotic once more. Remember? in grandpas days the far east was pretty special.  "Make China Cool Again"

Folks just don't understand his messaging.

When he says "make America great again" it means "make rich Americans richer again"

It makes no difference. Dems hate him but won't be shocked. Deplorables will always be happy to back a scumbag and a hypocrite if he'll push their agenda.

Not exactly "shocking" or "news". He's been doing business this way forever, and getting a pass from MAGAers

david-morris That is why "shocking" was in quotes. I was attempting sarcasm. This is just funny, nothing more.

Playing devil's advocate, Jimmy cites that imported goods must be labeled with country of origin.
What do the laws say about goods that are produced in America? If that bank is made in America, does it have to be labeled as such?

Right now, (I'm on mobile) all I'm seeing is if things are labeled as made in the US, it has to adhere to certain guidelines.

I was thinking the same thing. 
It IS possible that at least a few of the store's merchandise is actually made in the USA.

DuckBoy87 If that bank was made in America they would stamp it with the biggest "Made in America" you have ever seen. It would be called the "Made in America, MAGA, Gold Bank, Produced in America"

kalron27 I did at least.  Just like I know he hires a bunch of Mexican immigrants while at the same time saying he wants to kick them all out.

Some Trump supporters I know like to actually turn this around as a positive for Trump by saying, "Yeah, he knows all the bad things because he uses them to stay competitive with his competitors because that's what they do.  So he's gonna work on closing those things up so his companies do not have to use them anymore to stay competitive."

I think that's a bunch of BS though.
