MAGA hats, 'Fake News' shirts are hot sellers at Newseum, irritating reporters

Via Fox News The Newseum is selling MAGA hats and 'fake news' T-shirts
"If you’re looking to stock up on the famous red hats that bear Donald Trump’s favorite slogan, look no further than the Newseum’s gift shop.
"On its website, the interactive news museum in Washington, D.C., sells $14.99 “Make America Great Again” hats alongside American flag accessories and ties that bear the preamble to the Constitution. A T-shirt that says “You are very fake news” sells for $24.99, but it’s on sale for $19.97."

Now wait just a minute here: A note to the Newseum about its 'Fake News' t-shirts  . . . "The Newseum, despite its financial struggles and uncertain future, remains my favorite museum anywhere. It first captured my attention in 2000, when my eighth-grade class visited the museum at its previous home in Rosslyn, Virginia. As someone who was a news consumer at an early age, the museum appealed to me. 

"This week, we learned that the Newseum is selling "Fake News" t-shirts online. As of this writing, the t-shirts are still available (and on sale) on the museum's website. 

"In a statement provided to CNN, the Newseum's spokesperson, Sonya Gavankar, explained the decision to sell the "Fake News" t-shirts. 

" 'Fake news is a word that is in our popular culture now and this is intended to be a 'satirical rebuke' and appears in our store with T-shirts that include a variety of other 'tongue-in-cheek' sayings," Gavankar said." . . .
