‘Gift For Kids Or The Trump Voter?’ Fox Highlights ‘Build The Wall’ Lego Knockoff Set

Fox News MAGA toy

Over the course of three hours of “Fox and Friends” on Wednesday morning, a new Trump-themed Lego knockoff set was highlighted three times, as hosts dissected whether the toy could be a gift for “kids or the Trump voter.”

The toy set is made by Keep and Bear, a conservative company, and includes a figurine of President Trump as well as a “Make America Great Again hard hat” and MAGA building blocks, “encouraging kids to build the wall,” Fox News’ Jillian Mele said during the segment.

The packaging also showcases racist imagery of immigrants with a figurine dressed in a sombrero and playing maracas on the other side of the “wall,” as Media Matters pointed out.

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
