Fox News recently began airing a commercial for a 22-inch plush bear. This is no ordinary stuffed bear. This is a “fearless, super-plush American grizzly.” The bear is styled after none other than the president himself. The stuffed animal, “Trumpy Bear,” was originally released in July of last year.
After the ads were aired on Fox News, Trumpy Bear was given new life. The advertisement opens with, “The wind whispered through the forest: ’A storm is coming – I am the storm.” The commercial might appear to be a spoof but it is entirely real. The bear is available on Amazon, where shockingly, it has reviews, which means people have actually purchased it.
The Huffington Post attempted to call the company that makes the Trump Themed plush bear, Exceptional Products Inc, to ask about sales of Trumpy Bear. They were unavailable because they were “experiencing unusually high call volume.”
One Twitter user aptly pointed out, “What idiot decided to call it Trumpy Bear instead of an I Really Don’t Carebear?”

It’s important to note that this super-Patriotic bear that is more patriotic than any other bear has a CERTIFICATE OF AUTHENTICITY and its ULTRA COZY FLAG THEMED BLANKET only has 33 stars on it.
Twitter is having a field day:
WARNING: Do not get Trumpy Bear wet. Even a drizzle will ruin his patriotism. pic.twitter.com/msvKGCJfVT

Curiosity got the better of me. I called up the customer service line at Exceptional Products, Inc., the company that sells Trumpy Bear, and spoke to someone who I'm fairly certain is the president of the company (small business).
She confirmed the bears are made in China.

the best part of the trumpy bear commercial by a country mile is the biker riding with his bear. pic.twitter.com/Adq94brpQL

I can't stop picturing Donald Trump Jr. laying in his 6X8 cell cuddling up to Trumpy Bear.
This mental image gives me hope!

Don’t get Trumpy Bear wet. Cheeseburgers after midnight are fine though. pic.twitter.com/EQ74VAKOIu
