But given insidious nature of the current White House, what isn’t in the headlines is often as bad or worse than any viral story.

That’s where a perceptive satirist like Jimmy Kimmel comes in handy. In today’s clip, Kimmel exposes the bold-faced hypocrisy of the Trump family merchandise business, going through a number of hilarious items including a bib, a handkerchief and other items all relating to food and golf for some reason.
