A T-shirt that’s for sale in the Trump Tower gift shop in New York City has set Twitter users abuzz because of its nonsensical slogan. Politico’s chief Washington correspondent Edward-Isaac Dovere posted a snap of the garment bearing the slogan “Shut The Fake Up Media” online Monday:

“Not even the t-shirts can speak clearly,” commented one Twitter user.
“Somebody faked up,” another noted.
Here’s a sampling of the responses:
