Gag gifts are always popular this holiday season, and 2016 is no different. As millions of shoppers turn towards Amazon.com for their holiday shopping, one product, which could be either a gag gift or a serious Christmas present depending on one’s political views, has been the target of anti-Trump internet trolls.
The Donald Trump ‘Make America Great Again’ Christmas tree ornament was listed recently on Amazon.com, however, the reviews for the product are dismal, thanks to a group of internet trolls who are not very fond of the new President-elect. The 14K gold ornament now has over 130 reviews, with an average rating of 1.6 out of 5 stars. It’s honestly pretty difficult to find any product, for that matter, that’s selling on Amazon with as low a rating as this ornament. Whether you are an anti-Trump critic or not, some of these negative reviews are pretty hilarious:
“As soon as I hung it on my tree, it started insulting all the other ornaments,” wrote one anti-Trump critic.
“This ornament keeps tweeting at 3 a.m., demanding apologies from the casts of various Broadway musicals,” wrote another critic.
“Turns orange the higher you put it on the tree,” stated another hilarious reviewer.
“Despite ordering a more reasonable ornament, this one arrived. It. Is. Yuge. It’s absolutely yuge. It’s the biggest ornament. Yuge.
I hung it on my tree, but it is so yuge that it has totally unbalanced my whole tree. No matter where I hang it, the tree leans waaaaaay over to the far right,” says a more recent review.
None of these reviews have actually purchased the product, yet Amazon.com allows them to stay on the site. Meanwhile, Jeff Benzenberg, eRetailing’s director of new development, who are the ones selling the ornament, is trying to get Amazon to remove the reviews ASAP.
