The presidential election season only comes around once every four years, and it's a sure-fire excuse to buy some new clothes. And when I say clothes, I mean sardonic statement pieces that are sure to either offend or trigger a giggle. Given the candidate lineup this year for the GOP nomination, the possibilities seem endless. Somehow, an NYC billionaire who can get away with suggesting we deport Muslims and persuade Mexico pay for a wall, is winning the most votes from the GOP. Next to him is Texas Senator Ted Cruz, the man who proposed that legislators shut down the government to hinder the passing of the Affordable Care Act. And since Florida Senator Marco Rubio is just a basic "establishment" character, there's not anything particularly shocking to say about him.
At its core, America's selection of GOP candidates is just plain embarrassing this year, but at least they provide some top-notch entertainment. Who knew GOP debates could turn into intense shouting matches equipped with name-calling, screaming, and tons of drama? Inevitably, the childish behavior also leaves room for some painfully ironic "I can't get down with the GOP" attire. Most of the slogans will cause you to burst out into laughter, but after you realize that this is our reality, you might want to shed a tear or two.
Quite frankly, this goes for both Republicans and Democrats. I don't think the establishment GOP is too pleased with Trump either. Either way, these shirts will lighten up the mood, at least for the moment. Everyone should be able to make fun of themselves because even the "I support Trump" shirts can become a joke.
1) Down With The GOP
This shirt could be worn by both Republicans and Democrats alike — it just depends on if you're joking or not. Do I know you?
2) Politics Are A Hot Mess
Who are we kidding? This goes for the whole lot — Democratic and Republican.
3) Full Of Informed Opinions
Honestly, as long as they're informed, this tee shirt might actually encourage people to engage you.
4) Vote For Space King
This shirt's slogan might not be a joke. I mean, considering the options ... Trump: billionaire today, space king tomorrow.
5) Can't Stump Trump ... Or Can You
Donald Trump displayed his intelligence at a South Carolina rally in December.
I’m telling you, I used to use the word incompetent. Now I just call them stupid. I went to an Ivy League school. I’m very highly educated. I know words, I have the best words...but there is no better word than stupid. Right?
If stupid is the best he's got, it's safe to say he's been stumped. The shirt could be ironic.
6) The Cruz and Boehner Bromance
I got along with everybody. You get along with nobody. You don't have one Republican senator ... backing you, not one. You don't have the endorsement of one ... You should be ashamed of yourself.
I can't help but like that.
7) Let's Get Randy ... As In Rand Paul
Pun intended in this shirt.
8) Trump The Dump
This shirt speaks for itself in so many ways.
9) Trump/ Winfrey
This baseball shirt screams "as if!"
10) Better Hair Than Trump
The shirt definitely went there.
11) Ready For Greatness
The wacky hair taking up the majority of the shirt says it all. It's not great.
