If you find it impossible to believe that any sane person would buy a “Trumpy Bear” stuffed toy (retail $69.95), festooned with red tie and American flag cape, so does Jimmy Kimmel. Seeing the ad for this bizarre consumer item on cable left him a bit shocked.

It’s real: The Trumpy Bear is a takeoff on the Teddy bear, named after President Theodore Roosevelt.

So don’t miss out on this astonishing deal! Just click.
