Two pranksters sure knew how to troll Donald Trump in the best way possible. The two pranksters decided to sneak in satirical merchandise into Manhattan’s Trump Tower as a way to troll the president.
According to the local news outlet Gothamist, the pranksters slipped fake merchandise such as a KKK hood “for fine people,” packages of urine-proof rubber sheets, a Russian “Trump” flag, and a postcard featuring Putin as the 45th President of the United States, among other things.
Gothamist reporters went to go check on Tuesday to see if the items were still being sold – surprisingly they were.

But as soon as the reporters tried purchasing the items the clerks caught on to the prank. Within an hour all the merchandise was taken down.
“We thought the tourists coming in to buy some stuff, especially people from other countries, should get the whole story of who the president is, because the items in the Trump store don’t accurately reflect the person,” one of the pranksters explained to Gothamist.
