Chris the roving UHub reporter spotted these forlorn bottles at Gary's Liquors in West Roxbury tonight.
Is a great liquor store, excellent selections and prices. No, I have no connection to them whatsoever, was just a regular customer.
He has a whole slew of products.. someone on my facepage posted this that was Trump Coffee
I replied with the comment that said:
Yeah coffee that leaves a bitter and regretful aftertaste in your mouth, leaving you that feeling that you wish you'd picked a better brand.
* Contains 100% Maxwell House coffee

And that stuff is expensive.. 9.49 for 12 kcups?!? I think I paid 5.99 for Starbucks Kcups on sale at Market Basket a few weeks ago. However, this picture came from a friend in Texas who saw it at Albertson's.
blanc de blanc is about right.
It leaves a bitter after taste.... and makes you regret your choices
Didnt know where to get this before.
There will be two less tomorrow.
thankful for living in liberal town for once.
$30 for domestic non-vintage non-AOC bubbly? Yeah, you go back up the truck, pal... I can think of no worse punishment to wish on someone than to be stuck drinking that plonk.
Forget MA's highest ranked schools, long lifespans, amazing hospitals and great wages....all I care about is access to crappy wine!
With lemmings like you buying Trust Fund Trump's crap it must have taken a tremendously bad business man to run Trump Airlines, Trump Steaks, Trump University, Trump Atlantic City, The New Jersey Generals, GoTrump.com, Trump Vodka, Trump Magazine, Trump On The Ocean and a few more business into the ground. Add on his marriages and its shocking how someone can suck so bad at life.
It's all good.
We all get to support who we like and that's what makes America Great.
If it weren't for checking on UHub I wouldn't have known that Gary's had it.
Trump's wine locator didn't show it. http://www.trumpwinery.com/wine-locator
That being said..
I'm not judging people from spending $10 on a bowl of salad either when they can make their own for a fraction.
Have a great day
Don't agree with you but a thumbs up for civility none the less
"We all get to support who we like and that's what makes America Great."
This is clearly a lie. America is a DISASTER. We are losing at everything. Obummer care is a DISASTER. Our healthy economy and low unemployment rates are a DISASTER. We are making THE WORST deals.
I thought the goal is to make America Great AGAIN?
At least the Republicans can finally admit that this country is smoking cesspool of human misery painted with the pretty colors of Wall St earnings. Who better than a sleazy con-man to get us back on track!
Wince and choke down a glass of that garbage , take a few breaths, and try to get your rhetoric straight. Glad you could take a few bottles off Gary's hands, he is likely to take a loss on them, like everything else Trump touches.
There were two bottles left as of a while ago. Unless he has more in the backroom.
Anyways to your points.
Obamacare is a disaster.
My premiums went from 178 to 289 for no reason.. and if i decided to forgo that expense i'd be hit with a massive fine while still not having coverage?. What happened to Affordable?
Anyways... We'll see who the democrats choose in 8 years to compete,
Gimme 2, don't buy them all. I'm not a wine guy but one bottle in my cabinet is untouchable. It's a bottle with the Red Sox logo from the 2004 World Series. Now there will be a second bottle off limits, if the over 1,000,000+ Trump voters in MA don't beat me to it. I wonder if Gary's can back date the receipt to last Friday, a new beginning. If you had a receipt from inauguration day with the bottle, it would be worth a small fortune already, much like the surging stock market that the fake Globe front page predicted would crash under Trump. Perhaps some of the Globe's prediciions will come true and nuclear war will start any minute. #MAGA
I planned on 6 at the moment but i'll let you know later today on here how many were left.
Hopefully not too many Trump Voters see this UHub post since it was posted last night.
After we clear out, it'll likely hit reddit causing Gary's to clear out and he can order more.
Stay Strong and MAGA on! :)
...drink them in bed.
18 U.S. Code § 713 - Use of likenesses of the great seal of the United States, the seals of the President and Vice President, the seal of the United States Senate,...United States House of Representatives, and the seal of the United States Congress
(b) Whoever, except as authorized under regulations promulgated by the President and published in the Federal Register, knowingly manufactures, reproduces, sells, or purchases for resale, either separately or appended to any article manufactured or sold, any likeness of the seals of the President or Vice President, or any substantial part thereof, except for manufacture or sale of the article for the official use of the Government of the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than six months, or both.
Now I'm sure Gary's didn't contact the POTUS to get his approval for this.. Just saying
*runs and ducks tomatoes being thrown at him*
Does a lot for the community. And there's this.
Thank you for the nice words. Again, I wasn't trying to make a political statement. I am a big believer in the 1st amendment. I have no problem with people coming in and saying they were mad, or happy that I carried this. It is not my place to take choices away from people. If you like it, then buy it, if not, then don't. If you feel like expressing your opinion to me in a civil way, then I am more than happy to hear you out. The key word being CIVIL. It is all sold out now, but we have plenty of Tequila and Corona left ;)
How's Barry doing?
If the feds come busting down his door I think his lawyer might be able to argue that the seal was not attached to the actual article that was going out the door but was merely adjacent to it.
That is until Trump signs an executive order directing the Justice Department to not prosecute anyone for selling a Trump article with the seal on it, then it won't be an issue any more.
Which is my own fault for not including this also. It includes advertisements
(a) Whoever knowingly displays any printed or other likeness of the great seal of the United States, or of the seals of the President or the Vice President of the United States, or the seal of the United States Senate, or the seal of the United States House of Representatives, or the seal of the United States Congress, or any facsimile thereof, in, or in connection with, any advertisement, poster, circular, book, pamphlet, or other publication, public meeting, play, motion picture, telecast, or other production, or on any building, monument, or stationery, for the purpose of conveying, or in a manner reasonably calculated to convey, a false impression of sponsorship or approval by the Government of the United States or by any department, agency, or instrumentality thereof, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than six months, or both.
A restriction that would be almost certainly would be quashed by the Court if it were seriously challenged.
Cybah, you should have been at the inaugural. All kinds of garments for sale with the Seal of the President of the United States, being peddled by mostly black local D.C. vendors, as federal agents galore passed by without concern. Hats, scarves, shirts, rain gear, you name it. Very nice vendors, festive and items priced reasonably. They also had some anti-Hillary gear with language unfit to print here. I passed on those, she's been through enough. You could even buy a picture standing behind the presidential podium (with official seal) at Reagan National Airport. It had a little step stool behind it, apparently expecting Hillary to win. They must have believed the polls! I will grab a bottle of wine (or two) though if I can get to Gary's soon enough.
...being peddled by mostly black local D.C. vendors...
Fuck off somewhere else, please.
Right. Because there's absolutely NO way that the phrase you quoted could EVER provide ANY sort of reasonable, respectful context!
And why is THAT? Because of the source, of course: O-FISH-L!!!
So perhaps you'll consider taking your own advice.
I didn't realize that, and changed the sign as soon as I saw this. Thank you for pointing that out.
I figured you didn't know :-) A lot of people don't know this.. some how at 1am this morning I vaguely remember that you can't use the seal anywhere without expressed permission (which is rare)
Maybe if it had a catchy slogan like that it would sell better.
(Or maybe not...)
it would just be a waste of a clever slogan
although i'd probably buy it because that is pretty awesome.
Great birthday present for my mom. She loves Trump.
I'm guessing they fly off the shelf and hopefully get restocked as soon as necessary. Not everybody passionately hates the president of the United States like you Adam. When will your temper tantrum end?
Stores in many states had plenty of shelf space because they were all sold out of Democrat Kool-Aid
After all of that, we have means to handle our grievances, such as-
Separation of powers through an elected Legislature
The fact that the head of government is elected, albeit indirectly
The first amendment allows the freedom to petition for the redress of grievances
Unfortunately, after a little kerfuffle in the 1860s after a Republican was elected President, states kind of have to admit that the President and Congress have powers under the Constitution.
Not everybody passionately hates the president of the United States like you Adam.
Not everybody, but the majority of people do. He's got a 36% approval rating.
Rasmussen has 55% approving of his job performance in the White House. Of course, 40% strongly approve and 40% strongly disapprove, with the remaining 20% just sick and tired of hearing from the other 80% and wish they just posted about puppies and kittens on facebook.
I also have a piece of paper towel that my 3-year-old scribbled on with purple crayon, which I think reads "11%," though that might just be a ketchup stain. Anyway, I'll take the word of the paper towel over the nation's least reliable polling firm, thanks.
You'd rather go with your gut than with the data in front of you? Interesting.
I'd rather go with Gallup (which is where the 36% number came from), but even if you go with Rasmussen's 40% he still has the lowest approval rating for an incoming president since Eisenhower.
Rasmussen puts it at 55%. Still, after 1 week I would imagine that even GWB had much higher numbers. I mean, it would not seem easy to screw up after 6 days in office, and while Trump might have done some things that in some quarters give pause, he hasn't screwed up to that level, yet.
But yes, Gallup (and I just saw Quinnipiac) give a starker number. Probably has something to do with question bias in one or more (or all) of the polls.
(edited to add the last 9 words. I don't know whose polls ask which questions.)
It has to do with Rasmussen cherry picking which number they like best, when they don't outright pull one out of their nethers.
Just because they put numbers out there, does not mean that they are valid. It is the methods and the rigor that make for science and statistics, not having a number.
All of those clinton polls could not have possibly been wrong...
The national polls consistently showed Clinton winning the popular vote. Which she did, by nearly 3 million.
She lost. Donald J. Trump is the President of the United States...
"How long will this stuff sit on the shelf? "
...and Gary's ran out of his wine.
Rasmussen-right, erik g.
That would be one of the pollster which Real Clear Politics ranked highly--both for the electoral and popular votes.
But go ahead. Knock yourself out and keep pulling a SwirlyGrrl by your lightning-quick, dismissive putdowns of "your opposition."
Um, honey, no.
What degree in statistics do you have? I have a masters in biostat, Sc.D. in epidemiology. I figured out what the sampling problem was with the underprediction of Sander's voters by 538 a couple of weeks before the site definitively confirmed it.
Leave it to the professionals, dear. Your armchair isn't up to the task.
His approval rating would be 100% but for the illegal immigrants which answered the poll.
I guess I'm an illegal immigrant then. Better deport me back to Western Mass where I came from.
The phrase "temper tantrum" is purposely discrediting the real issues people may have with this. For instance, the fact that our sitting president is making money from products using his name.
[tastes] An aggressive flavor profile...subtle undertones of Cheetos and burnt hair...with a lingering aftertaste of sweat and motor oil
The liquor store can sell it, but they cannot use the Presidential Seal to unload it.
I would not buy it.
trying to come up with a fitting orange wine joke, but I'm coming up empty.
In conclusion, fuck Trump and his terrible wine.
I don't drink but your comment makes me want to. Would have been hilarious if Hillary was served this during that alleged breakdown she had on election night..Et Tu,Trump?
Hope Adam, sticks to his comments about being civil. Saying F*** the president of the country you at least live in and are possibly a citizen of is pretty low class and vile if you ask me.
you can say F anyone who mocks people with disabilities. president or not.
...and draft dogers who mock veterans who were prisoners of war.
I never said you can't express your opinions on the president. I asked that people who post here be civil towards each other. I realize that may be too subtle a distinction for some folks, but I guess I'll just have to live with that burden.
i am the president?
no one asked you.
Anyway, I'm sticking to Adam's civility guidelines, but those guidelines don't say anything about calling terrible wine terrible, or calling fascists out by name, so I think we're good here.
One can respect the process to elect as well as the office but one can also declare his/her President a wackadoodle.
But then again, so is boasting about grabbing women by the pussy.
They should mark it UP 20% like Trump wants to do to my tomatoes, avocados and Coronas.
Trump knows that his supporters are too dumb to do the math and figure out that Americans paying 20% more for groceries does not in any way equal Mexico paying for the wall.
Is that why the Dems can only carry the welfare class and the limousine class. Sorry to break it to you but the middle-class isn't uneducated and they heavily voted for Trump.
Carnival-addled "suckers" putting emotional beliefs ahead of the good sense their grandpas and grandmas would have slapped into them for being gullible marks? Yes.
Grow your own tomatoes , screw the avocados , and drink Bud from NH . Thus , no worries !
Absolutely no way this is a $30 bottle of wine. Honestly it looks like someone slapped a Trump label on a bottle of Cold Duck. People buying it for the novelty are being duped and will likely regret it, though I'm sure they'll never admit it.
Not meant to knock on Gary's, BTW. If people will buy it I don't blame him for selling it.
Should we just buy it all and dump it into the harbor? We can call it the Boston Wine Party!
...didn't BUY anything.
Also, they were all drunk off their asses.
Perfect we can get drunk while we do it.
Yeah I know they just took it, I'm not advocating theft tho.
Was also already repealed. They were mad cheap EITC tea/goods was flooding the market and undercutting their Import businesses.
So throwing shitty, cheap wine into the harbor that is undercutting local wineries is perfectly in line with tradition!
Show me , dont tell me , just do it if it floats your boat!
Do you 'spose he knows who picked those grapes or thought about who will pick them in the future? If he googles Los Gatos Canyon he might learn something, (or not).
Aw heck, I'll make it easy.
That's nice that they named a wine after his base.
I had to to back to the original image and squint a little before I got the joke, but you, sir, win today's prize.
Always Elvis wine from the 1970s. As others posting here have commented, it's not an especially good blend. However, lots of people will buy it for the implied "collector" value**. And the majority of those people will have no clue how to properly store wine, with the result that it will turn into vinegar and, thus, become totally worthless to either a collector or a wine drinker.
** remember, if something is marketed as a 'collectible', or perceived by the average person as one, it's usually produced in a large enough quantity as to negate any possible collector value.
Also, as I mentioned upthread, this is non-vintage bubbly. It's not intended to age. If you keep in perfect storage conditions for five years, it'll be undrinkable. If you keep it under conditions most people who buy Trump-branded collectibles keep them (in the pantry, behind the gun rack but in front of the Confederate flag stand), it'll be vinegar by next Christmas.
I remember buying a box at the West Roxbury Roche Bros. (back when they were way on the other side of Centre Street). Never opened it, now it's missing!
same terrible cereal, new local hero on the box....
Its the timing and the bottle , not the contents, I have a crock of Tullamore Dew hand carried over when it was no longer available in the US at one time . It is worth more to the people that appreciate it more for the historical significance than the creature inside , even though it has aged quite a bit in its unopened crock awaiting its unleashing at a later point in time.
$.98 cents, I would buy one.
his supporters are willing to swallow anything."
To answer your question... "How long will these sit on the self?" We had 240 bottles which were put out last week right before the inauguration. 7 days later, all 240 bottles have sold out. To be honest, I was very surprised at how well and fast they did sell. I understood that some people would be upset that we carried these, and others happy. We were not trying to make a political statement by selling it, after all, we still proudly carry products from Mexico!
your sales of Dos Equis and Cuervo go after the 20% tariff gets added on.
Mexico's Jose Cuervo planning February IPO
You can always cultivate a taste in vodka, that seems to be the rage today, made in USA but elite stuff gets imported. Put the bottle in the refrigerator and you cant tell the difference,Smirnoff is as good as Stoli !
Heineken owns Dos E , and they are smarter than the average beer. They will whopper chop the numbers, brew it at another existing brewery , maybe have it contract brewed in USA or, buy an existing USA brewery operation. Don't you be worried about the Most Interesting Man in the World. Perhaps Cuba would be an innovative place to make a brewery, start a trend , friend. Who knows , even Bacardi might consider it .
For only $29.95 a person can buy a $2 bill with Mr. Trump's face on it. Or for $19.95 a person could have purchased a formerly Kennedy 50 cent piece that is now a Trump 50 cent piece (with Mr. Trump's face). Previously one could purchase a 1 dollar coin with Mr. Trump's face.
Wine will go bad or it will be drunk. But Trump money (as long as it's not spent of course) will be a keepsake that lets you be a part of history!
Actually I'm an insomniac lately and I watch alot of TV at 2am.. there's places out there selling "commemorative coins" with his face on them.
And all of them say "not valid for legal tender"
