In just a matter of days, oodles of merchandise have popped up online giving budding political fashionistas a chance to be "impeachment chic.”

A shirt going for $25 on the shopping site RedBubble shows a blue wave with the message "Ukraine Drops" emblazoned on it. "Ukraine drops keep falling on Trumps [sic] head," says a seller's description for the clothing item, "impeachment is one Phone Call away."

Another shirt being sold on Etsy features an illustration of a peach fashioned to look like an image of Trump's head. "Made in the Ukraine" and "Impeach" the $18 tee says on the front. The seller, who listed the item just days after Pelosi announced the impeachment inquiry, claims the shirt is a "great way to show your support to impeach this bad president."

"Funny with the main image of a peach but not too nutty or offensive to spark off the extreme convictions of the far right," the online retailer says.

Fans of the anonymous author of the whistleblower complaint, which alleges misconduct by Trump in his dealings with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, can show their support with a variety of wardrobe options.

A $12 hat on CafePress playfully offers a chance to reveal the identity of the person behind the complaint, with an image of Trump, a whistle and the message, "I'm the whistleblower."

A giant picture of a whistle with the words "Democrats 2020" written on it in blue on a long sleeve shirt is for sale for $27 on Zazzle. "The whistleblower gave us yet another reason to vote Democratic in 2020," a message accompanying the product says.

Yet another shirt from TeePublic bears "86 45" on it, written in a font fashioned to look like the American flag. A whistle on the center of the outfit also shows an image of the flag. The seller calls the item "trendy and current," writing, "Patriotic people, whether Republican, Democrat, Independent, Progressive, etc. will love this design."

So far, the Trump campaign's official 2020 store doesn’t appear to have released release any anti-impeachment merchandise, but it has touted massive fundraising numbers — to the tune of at least $13 million raised by it and the Republican National Committee — since the impeachment inquiry began.
