President Donald Trump may have been at odds with professional football over the last six months or so, but football fans don’t seem to mind. At least that’s what the sales numbers for a new line of Trump-themed fantasy football trophies seem to suggest.
The company makes a variety of trophies featuring a list of different figures atop them, but it is finding that its Trump trophies are its hottest seller. Over 1,000 in just the last week alone have been ordered, the company said.
The company has even incorporated some amusing “fake news” slogans on the Trump trophies:
Wait, so does this mean we've OFFICIALLY made it?!?! pic.twitter.com/caMqDkgocx

The company’s initial idea was to create a trophy base that could support several different “swap toppers” so that the item can be used over and over again for different reasons. But the Trump “fake news” trophies have become an instant hit.
Trophy Smack has more traditional trophies:

But don’t peg Trophy Smack as a Trump-only zone. If you are mad at them for their Trump trophy, they have a message for you: lighten up, Francis.
The company posted this question on its FAQ page: “What’s with Trump and Jesus? What are your political and religious beliefs?”
The answer is as follows: “Wrong question. While polarizing politics and religions might be bad for mankind, it offers itself as a wonderfully tee’d up opportunity for humor and smack talk in the safe contained environment of Fantasy Sports.”
So, just have some fun, won’t you?
