Trump Launches “Made In America Week” And MSNBC Points Out Where His Own Stuff Is Made [VIDEO]

Mediaite reports:

One of the promotional ploys that the President Donald Trump administration has brought to the nation’s capital has been “theme weeks.” In the past month or so we’ve seen “Infrastructure Week” and “Workforce Development” week, and today marks the first day of President Trump’s “Made in America” week, which is ostensibly a chance to highlight and celebrate American made products.

While supporters probably love this way to address policy issues, cynics might see this as a craven and old school publicity ploy designed to drive a news narrative. Consider MSNBC host Ali Velshi among those skeptics, but not because of the PR play, but because of the rather obvious hypocrisy between the administration’s “theme” and Trump’s own personal business.

  • Lazycrockett

    MSNBC especially Ali has been trolling Drumpf hard.

  • Ninja0980

    Glad to see some folks on MSNBC aren’t afraid to call this POS we have as President out.

  • Gustav2

    Whoever thougtht this was a good idea should be impeached.

    • Todd20036

      I don’t always see, but when I do, I see what you did there.

  • safari
    • Todd20036

      All those millions, and he cannot afford a neck.

      • Lazycrockett

        and he was all over Mika wanting to know who did her last lift and tuck.

      • Piet

        All those millions and he cannot afford a good haircut.

    • denbear00

      20 tons of shit in a 10 ton bag.

    • clay

      Uh, photo-shopped to make him look like he has microcephaly?

      • Todd20036

        I don’t think that’s photo shop

        • clay

          look at the shortness of the forehead, the location of the ears relative to the eyes– either the photo’s off, or he is.

          • safari
          • clay

            maybe he is actually microcephalic

          • Todd20036

            None of the photos I’ve seen make him look any better.
            The ones where he’s smiling has that Pharmadouche smirk and soulless eyes.
            No, I really don’t think that is photoshop.
            He’s really just as ugly on the outside as he is on the inside.

          • Ernest Endevor

            The throat line and lips are shopped. Don’t know about the rest of it.I’m trying to choke down some Greek yoghurt.

          • Nowhereman

            Most right wingers are like that. Those are the faces that they made, not the ones they were born with. The ugly just wells up and out from the inside. There’s an old Twilight Zone episode about that called “The Masks”.

          • Christopher

            Maybe it’s Maybelline. 😉

          • Stephen Elliot Phillips

            the mullet is incredibly nasty

          • Tread

            Lol. That the same photo, just the original.

          • Ernest Endevor

            Why can’t this man pay someone to apply his bronzer so it doesn’t leave a line?

          • Danieruw

            Could you be paid enough to touch him?

          • Ernest Endevor

            With a make up sponge. Mind you, there might be a certain amount of manual smoothing involved so, yeah, I see your point.

          • bzrd

            this is the same photo just flipped, the other, photo shopped for a flabbier chin
            but, he is one ugly man

          • RoFaWh

            I’m a year or two older than “him”, but though I’m definitely showing signs of wear, I look a lot better than him when it comes to details like skin elasticity.

            I wonder just how much cocaine he snorted in his younger days.

          • thatotherjean
          • kareemachan

            I’m betting on the latter.

          • The_Wretched

            I feel the same way. It might actually be him. I’m still wondering on the choice of offputting orange for his base coat.

      • denbear00

        Zippy finally won.

      • safari

        I have no idea.

      • m_lp_ql_m

        This is the 2nd such photo I’ve seen with a similar caption to NOT share because Trump dislikes it.

      • Jefe5084

        which head? the one loosely attached to his kyphotic shoulder area, or the one he hasn’t seen for years when looking across the vast expanse of his bloated belly toward the floor? Both, I assume.

    • Michael R
    • Ernest Endevor

      Of a hideousness…

    • Frostbite

      that is one hell of a comb-over. must hang down past his chin when it isn’t held back by crazy-glue.

    • anne marie in philly

      jesus christ, that’s FUGLY! I need eye bleach STAT!

    • The_Wretched

      It looks fake.

      • JCF

        Comparing safari’s upper pic, to lower, it looks like the upper one has been *slightly* distorted.

        • The_Wretched

          I think trump looks fake too ;p.

    • Nowhereman

      I think it does him justice. The only thing that would make it more appropriate would be an orange jumpsuit.

    • Jefe5084

      he gets more hideous by the minute. Amazing.

      • charemor

        Reverse Dorian Gray syndrome.

    • JCF

      Yikes, is this real? Reminds me of a sheep or goat: a face w/o a head (brain-space)!

    That’s OK. Once Trump brings back those Kleen Koal™ jobs, all the rest of the manufacturing jobs’ll come pouring back home.

    • clay

      coal > steel > rail roads & locomotives

      Paul Ryan doesn’t see the problem with that.

      • 2guysnamedjoe

        Railroads weren’t a prominent feature of drümpf’s infrastructure hoopla, IIRC.

        • clay

          but Ayn Rand’s . . .

        • RoFaWh

          But they should be!

          A couple of years ago, I chanced across one of the many videos posted to Youtube by rail fans. It was a small enlightenment to realize that here was this important major industry about which you never read unless there’s a good crash.

          As I got deeper into railfan videography, I noted that there are several important tunnels on the routes through the mountains, at the Stevens, Donner, and Mullan passes in particular. These tunnels are all single-track lines and constitute significant bottlenecks on the double-track lines they’re part of.

          Time to dig another half dozen or so tunnels so all those important routes are double track (at least).

          • thatotherjean

            That’ll never happen. It might be useful. We could use some decent high-speed rail, too.

  • Rex

    How out of touch do you need to be to promote “made in America” when none of the products bearing your name or your daughter’s name are made in America? There is something seriously wrong with him.

    • m_lp_ql_m

      Since when are politicians, especially Republicans, in touch with their constituents?

      • Rambie

        You mean, except for the ones they are cheating on their wives?

      • BJORN RAGNVALDR

        The only constituents they touch aren’t old enough to vote.

      • 2guysnamedjoe

        Drümpf is perfectly in tune with his fans who decry all the factory closings yet do their shopping at Walmarts. (Take the Walmart challenge — find the US-made item and win a prize!)

      • If you’re white, rich, straight,xtian and male, the GOP totally has your back!

    • Judas Peckerwood

      “How out of touch do you need to be to promote “made in America” when none of the products bearing your name or your daughter’s name are made in America?”

      It’s not about being out of touch, it’s about knowing that your supporters will gladly eat whatever shit-sandwich you feed them.

      • Snarkaholic

        Random Redneck: Hey, the tag says this shirt was made in the USSR!
        Chump: Yes…it stands for United States Sewing Region.
        Random Redneck: Oh, okay…glad it’s made in America!

    • RoFaWh

      Another example of the orange asshole’s non-connectivity to reality.

      They never seem to check to be sure their rhetoric matches their actions. As we all know, actions speak louder than words.

      All, that is, except the orange asshole and his gang of thieves and liars.

    • Christopher

      “There’s everything wrong with him.”

      Fixed it for you. 😉

    • Elton Webb

      It’s what’s wrong with those of us who supported him that is the problem.

      Is that a serious tweet? Ann Coulter is Rosa Park?
      Is RuPaul nuts?

      • Tread

        No, it’s not.

      • Dreaming Vertebrate

        RuPaul be throwing SHADE!

        • BJORN RAGNVALDR

          SERIOUS Shade

          • Kruhn

            Industrial amounts of shade!

        • Todd20036

          Ok. Got it. But in this day and age, sometimes it’s hard to tell what is sarcasm, and what is not.

          • Dreaming Vertebrate

            It’s been a meme since yesterday. Here’s Dumpf’s take.

            Ann Coulter had to give up her seat on Delta. Outrageous! What happened to Ann Coulter is 1000 times worse than what happened to Rosa Parks!— Donald J. Trump (@RealDonaldTrFan) July 16, 2017

          • Dreaming Vertebrate

            * Parody account.

          • Todd20036

            Ok, now it makes sense.

          • Chucktech

            “I’m hearing tremendous things about Rosa Parks, that’s what people are saying.”

          • Oh yeah, he is most definitely a supporter of civil rights! For rich white mens

          • Every time cheetolini opens his mouth to lie, I think it must be Opposite Day and once again I’ve forgotten to dress appropriately

    • Bj Lincoln

      I can’t believe RuPaul tweeted that! WTF! There is NO comparison! Coulter is a waste of skin and gray matter while Parks is an icon for civil rights!

      • Jeffg166

        Sarcasm.

      • Kruhn

        She was throwing shade, BJ.

      • JCF

        Oh Bj: you’re holding up the stereotype that we dykes are humor-challenged (can’t recognize an obvious joke).

    My deeply held disgust for Trump goes way back before he was president. I was walking through Macy’s one day and came upon a display of Trump ties displayed on a table. How they wound up on the floor I’ll never know.

    • boatboy_srq

      BRAVO- er, um, that’s unpossible!

      • I don’t know about unpossible, but it sure is on regular

    • pj

      hope nobody walked on them

    • Jefe5084

      They probably leapt to their deaths in shame.

  • Lazycrockett

    So these “Theme” weeks have been on the regular and all the media is reporting on is the continuing growing collusion with Russia scandal. Sad!

  • Jerry Kott

    It is mind boggling to try to wrap you head around the spin. With his daughters entire collection make over seas, the audacity of them to spin for American Products, especially Fashion. The other irony is that the Clothing that is being made here, is probably made by undocumented people.
    We don’t celebrate skill in this Nation. The same people who are preaching Buy American are the first to say the prices of labor here is too high.

  • Dreaming Vertebrate

    Dumpf: 100% of the fat, engorged bedbugs in our hotels are Made in America! Fake news!

  • FelineMama

    A whole “WEEK”? Seriously? Who came up with this knowing where all of donnie’s & the family businesses are? Un-fucking believable.
    Maybe they meant “Weak”? WH has completely gone off the cliff.

    What Trump products were in the “Made in America” showcase?

  • Nowhereman

    But no Pride week, of course.

    • Todd20036

      Not like we’d believe him if he did announce it.
      Remember, he hasn’t done a damn thing for us.

      • boatboy_srq

        Well, compared to p*ssy-grabbing pResidents, he’s actually made us look pretty good.

        Outside that, though, no, not really.

    tRump products are Made in Ahmurrrca just like all those Carrier jobs tRump “saved” stayed in Indiana.

    Louisiana makes baseball bats? Who knew!

    • BobSF_94117

      And Trump is doing his best to drive sales of baseball bats to right-wing groups around the world…

    i have never heard, or seen in print, the word “hypocrisy” used in relation to the Trump White House. /s

  • JerryRich
  • sandollar_man

    David Letterman did this exact same thing, TO TRUMPS FACE, on the Late Show.
    While handling some of Trumps ties, David asked his staff where it was made.
    China was the answer. Trump just smirked and shrugged.

    That’s cuz Trump has no integrity, credibility, or SHAME.

    • FelineMama

      I remember this! It ran all during the campaign. Funny. T’s expression was the highlight.

  • sandollar_man

    The ACA was devised to help the poor. The health insurance companies have had 100 years to devise policies that the poor could afford. They have failed for 100 years.
    We have 20 aircraft carriers.
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_aircraft_carriers_in_service
    The Russians have 1. The Chinese have 1. Each of them is a floating city that costs many billions every year.

    I would be perfectly fine if we only had 5 times as many aircraft carriers as the next biggest military.
    If it would help us to be a more civilized people who have compassion for our fellow citizens who can’t afford healthcare.
