'Merica! 'Build the Wall' Toy Set is Capitalism in a Nutshell

This might be capitalism at its very finest. There’s people out there that complain that everything is too commercial and that companies will turn anything into a product. That’s capitalism.

A “best-selling toy,” according to website Keep & Bear, has garnered some attention recently with the battle over the border wall. “Build the Wall” is essentially a small Lego set of building blocks where you can construct a a portion of the border wall, complete with a President Trump piece wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat. And instead of the Lego logo, the box displays the brand name “MAGA.”

Perhaps a slightly questionable aspect of the product, which is clearly intended as a joke that lefty’s will probably get all butthurt about, is a disclaimer on the box that reads “Illegal Immigrant Not Included.” The disclaimer comes with what is perceivably a Mexican man wearing a sombrero, shaking maracas and standing in front of what looks like an Mayan temple.

Take a look:


The description of the product includes a quote by Trump about the wall from his address the other night.

“Some have suggested a barrier is immoral,” Trump said. “Then why do wealthy politicians build walls, fences and gates around their homes? They don't build walls because they hate the people on the outside, but because they love the people on the inside.”

Personally, I think this set would make a great gag gift for your friends from the other side of the political spectrum. Just imagine the look on their face when they unwrap it and see this toy. Priceless!
