Living in America in 2017 is often terrifying and unpredictable. If you need yet another visual reminder, President Trump’s official website is now selling on-brand merch! A Halloween baseball cap, which is currently sold out, features a jack-o’-lantern on front and the slogan “Make America Great Again” on back.

The pairing of the slogan and an image meant to frighten people is (likely?) unintentionally frightening, and the internet was quick to roast the $45 baseball cap.

People made comparisons between the orange jack-o’-lantern and Trump’s skin color.

The products available on Trump’s site are perhaps a little too on-the-nose.

Coincidentally, the cover for next week’s New Yorker bears a resemblance to the baseball cap.
