Costumes For GOP Mascot Trolling Senate Candidates Were Made In China

“Sen. Feingold’s devastating economic policies have even made it too expensive for tree costumes to be produced in America," said Andrea Bozek, the communications director for the NRSC.

The National Republican Senatorial Campaign is currently attempting to make the fact that Former Sen. Russ Feingold — who was ousted from the Senate in 2010 and attempting to regain his seat this year — taught at Stanford a thing.

The NRSC and Wisconsin Republican Party are attempting to make this happen by creatively trolling the former senator with a tree. Specifically a tree that is supposed to represent the Stanford mascot, which is a tree.

Videos of the troll are below:

The tree appears to be made in China. This was also something the NRSC ran into earlier this year with a tire they were trolling Senate candidate Ted Strickland with. In both cases, the manufacture is based in China.

Here's the tire that is trolling Strickland as "retread Ted."
