This Toilet Paper With Donald Trump's Tweets Was So Popular, It's Completely Sold Out
If you've ever scrolled through the president's Twitter feed and thought to yourself that you wished you had a physical way to show your appreciation for his 140-character bon mots, there's an option. Or there was, anyway. A toilet paper printed with Donald Trump's tweets is apparently completely sold out on Amazon.
Looks like plenty of people are enjoying the soft, luxurious feel of angry tirades against the news media and retcons of the 2016 election.
The company, called Toilet Tweets, was selling the tweet-adorned TP for $12 bucks a roll, according to The New York Daily News. The TP was getting reviews up until Friday, August 4, when apparently, the rolls ran out. The Daily News reported that as of Saturday morning there was no toilet paper left. As of August 7, the product's Amazon page lists it as “currently unavailable” and doesn't say when or if it will be back in stock.
The Daily News also points out that this kind of product isn't unique to Trump. There was also toilet paper made with the face of former President Barack Obama, but it wasn't nearly as successful. "Three-packs go for $5 while a single roll lands at $4," the paper notes.
Well, Trump always does want to do better than Obama.
The product's success is pretty ironic, considering how Trump has lashed out against Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos.
Bezos, who also owns perpetual thorn in Trump's side news publication The Washington Post, has drawn Trump's ire on Twitter.
Though the toilet paper seemingly came from a third-party company rather than through Amazon itself, Amazon collects a commission on many third-party sales. Which, of course, means that Trump's angry tweets are money in Bezos' pocket.
But the real gold came from the reviews.
The comments on the product page are hilariously crass.
"I'm really afraid these will make my backside dirtier instead of cleaner," read the most recent review.
Another comment echoed the theme. "I don't think the manufacturer realized that Trump's tweets are so full of crap it ended up turning out to be an even exchange," said a second. For everything it cleaned, "an equal amount of Trump's toxic verbal residue was transferred back to my bum. Highly recommend that you take a shower immediately after use."
A third, from someone calling themselves Satisfied Customer, used the title, "The Perfect Tweet for Every A$."
For anyone disappointed they missed their window, there are still options.
There are still several companies selling toilet paper featuring Trump's face, as well as other novelty products. So you can still get your TP holder's fill. If you're not afraid of getting the president's face that close to your rear, anyway.
