#Russia‘s state TV host says:
“Look, these T-shirts are now being sold in the United States and are in high demand in the Republican camp. It says, “I’d rather be a Russian than a Democrat.” Note how the trends change with the times.” ©️ pic.twitter.com/vxOwwNAJmG

An image from two Ohioan Trump supporters’ provocative t-shirts, which proclaimed they would “rather be a Russian than a Democrat,” made its way to Russian state television on Monday, according to one observer.
Julia Davis noted on Twitter that a presenter on state-owned Russia-1 had held up a shirt with a similar graphic on air, saying, “Look, these T-shirts are now being sold in the United States and are in high demand in the Republican camp.”
You may remember that we first saw these t-shirts on these two Trump supporters at a rally in Ohio.
I think my first question is how did the Russians get their hands on these t-shirts so quickly?
Or, are we to assume that they were originally a Russian made product?
Because you know, that would make all kinds of sense.
