President Trump a hero in parts of America, based on T-shirts
The last time I did this was in early October 2016 when I noticed a lot of T-shirts supporting Republican Donald Trump for president.
On my latest trip, over the weekend, I saw even more pro-Trump T-shirts now that he’s the president of these United States. There was also the usual assortment of T-shirts supporting gun ownership and the Second Amendment, along with pop culture riffs and off-color humor.
Here are some photos of T-shirts I saw for sale at souvenir shops in Rehoboth Beach, Del., on Saturday, June 10.
One T-shirt depicted Trump as Superman. (See photo at top.)
Another showed him riding a tank emblazoned with Trump signs and a giant U.S. flag. The barrel of the tank was inscribed with Trump’s Apprentice catchphrase “You’re fired!” The over-the-top artwork showed Trump posing with an assault rival, an eagle with a machine gun, and fireworks and explosions in the background.
Yet another T-shirt read “Trump: Finally someone with balls!”
One T-shirt referenced the 2020 election with a picture of rapper Kanye West and the slogan “Yeezy #Kanye2020.”
Surprisingly there were no T-shirts supporting Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson for president in 2020 yet.
