With all of the talk (and tweets) about Russian ties to the 2016 Donald Trump campaign, it was only a matter of time before someone turned the allegations into a internet prank aimed at the man in the Oval Office.

The man behind popular Trump parody Twitter account , known simply as “Barry,” is now trolling Donald Trump with real Russian ties … as in an Russian neckties. 

To poke fun of allegations of collusion, Barry launched “Russian Ties Are Real” where anyone can purchase either a necktie or a bowtie featuring a simple pattern of the Soviet Union’s hammer and sickle and the outline of Trump’s infamous hair. 

Because, in the words of Barry, “Everyone else seems to have [Russian ties], now u can too!”

Barry calls the ties “a humorous, tongue-in-cheek physical product,” and he told Mashable that he plans on donating a portion of the proceeds to some sort of charity or “kindness initiative,” maybe even his own “The HumanKINDness Fund” nonprofit. 

There are no plans for a second design yet, but, Barry says, that could always change based on the reaction to this first tie. He also joked that maybe, if they’re a hit, he’ll move on to socks next.

Since launching in November, has amassed 124,000 followers with its tweets that mock the real president by taking his typically-unhinged Twitter rants and repackaging them as the work of a mature, rational president. 

Let’s just hope that you won’t have to fix these ties with scotch tape like Trump does.
