You can now buy a Donald Trump toilet brush and the internet can't cope
Donald Trump is undoubtedly the most divisive political figure of recent years. The billionaire businessman and former Apprentice star, who is a year into his presidency, has managed to alienate several groups of people, including women, the LGBTQ community and vast swathes of South America.
It didn't come as a surprise, of course. Even before Trump decided to run in the 2016 presidential election, his name was associated with scandal - involving everything from failed business ventures to sexual harassment allegations.
But along with the endless controversies, there is one other thing that hasn't changed - and that is his opposition's willingness - nay, enthusiasm - to mock him.
Case in point: you can now buy a Donald Trump toilet brush.
The hand-made and weirdly accurate representations of Trump promise to make our bathrooms look great again.
The 45th President of the United States is positioned at the end of the handle, and he sports a blue suit, a red tie, and honestly, the likeness is just uncanny.
The toilet brush is available to purchase on Etsy - being shipped from New Zealand.
The seller writes:
"Make Your Toilet Great Again! No president has had a Toilet Brush like my Toilet Brush! I am automatically attracted to toilet bowls, I just start scrubbing, I just kiss, I don’t even wait and when your a toilet brush they let you do it."
The brushes have proved to be so popular, however, that the demand has exhausted the supply. People are now having to wait 6-8 weeks for their orders to arrive.
The toilet brushes retail for NZ $35.70 (£19), and shipping costs an additional $35.70.
Further notes from the seller;

In related news, earlier this year, anarchist group INDECLINE put one of their nude Trump statues - The Emperor Has No Balls - up for auction.
The sculptures, which caused quite a stir back in 2016, feature the then-Presidential candidate with a bulging belly, stubby penis and lumpy form. The collective behind the installations explained that they wanted to humiliate the property maven, while also paying their dues to his despotic tendencies - as authoritarians have a penchant for erecting statues of themselves.
The statues were displayed in New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles and Cleveland in the weeks before the Republican candidate was ushered into the White House.
The statues did not last long. In New York, the Parks Department tore it down while onlookers booed. The NYPD watched over the dismantling, with one officer telling news outlets that it was unattended property and needed to be removed.
"NYC Parks stands firmly against any unpermitted erection in city parks, no matter how small," a Parks Department spokesperson later informed Gothamist.
Well, I think I've got my Christmas presents sorted this year...
