Last month, Trump’s reelection campaign started selling plastic straws as an alternative to “liberal paper straws.” Now, in response to the fake news that Trump lied about Alabama being potentially threatened Hurricane Dorian, the Trump campaign is selling “official” Trump markers. “Buy the official Trump marker,” tweeted Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale on Friday. The official Trump marker, he said, “is different than every other marker on the market, because this one has the special ability to drive @CNN and the rest of the fake news crazy! #KeepMarkersGreat.”

The Official Donald Trump Fine Point Markers are made in the USA and come in a set of five and feature Trump’s signature in gold, and sell for fifteen dollars. The media and the left may have been laughing at Trump over the #SharpieGate fake news, but it looks like Trump will get the last laugh. His plastic straws raised nearly half a million dollars for his reelection campaign in just a couple weeks, and these markers are the perfect response to yet another bogus attempt to smear him in the media.
