We all scream for ice cream

I don’t know if this is an ad or a joke. But Ad Week says it’s an ad:

Ad parody master Mike Diva finally got a chance to make a real commercial, and it’s as insane as you’d expect. In a good way.

Diva (real name: Mike Dahlquist) is well known for having made unflattering but undeniably entertaining parody ads for Donald Trump and Hillary Clintonin the last election, along with other weird stuff like this satanic Furby spot.

Now, he’s been hired by Halo Top ice cream—an ascendant brand that’s already shown something of a fondness for offbeat advertising—to produce a Kubrick-like meditation on the forthcoming robot enslavement of humans, and ice cream’s brutal role in early communication between the two sides.

How the krimson kapped konman pissed me off today

Babyman and Flotus visited Texas yesterday to look over the flood damage. I found that annoying, because when presidents go anywhere, that means a lot of resources have to be reassigned for security purposes. And when Houston is 30% underwater, emergency officials don’t need to be bothered with babysitting a temperamental twit.

But that didn’t piss me off. This did:

OK, so the dynamic duo leave the plane. That’s not the problem. The hats are. Click this link and you’ll see this:

The grifter in chief is hawking a hat he’s selling on his fundraising site for $40. He’s using a national disaster as an advertising gimmick so he can fleece the rubes with his merchandise. And it’s not like he just had the one hat on so he could cover his head in the rain, as this photo shows:

The krusty klown krapmeister is hawking multiple hats to his mindless minions.

You don’t think that’s a problem. FIne. Don’t listen to me. Let someone else tell you how scummy this is:

What has also received air time? The “Official USA 45th Presidential Hat,” for sale by Trump’s campaign for $40. 

The watchdog group Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, or CREW, points out that the president has been pictured wearing the hat, both in red and in white, in two official photos released by the White House. He wore the white version on his trip to Houston Tuesday.

“Even removed from the hurricane, it’s pretty inappropriate,” CREW spokesman Jordan Libowitz said.

The issue at play here is free advertising for Trump products, according to CREW.

Thanks, pump truppets. You’ve just turned human suffering into a selling opportunity.
