Northern Liberties clothing brand Philly Phaithful is releasing their collection of shirts reading “Ban Trump From Philly” in support of Mayor Michael Nutter. In a colorway of blue, white and red, this tee not only makes a serious statement, but also looks nice with a pair of jeans and chucks and an overcoat.
Trump’s call for banning all Muslims from entering the United States has had him in a lot of heat since his statement, however – Philly is clapping back.
Mayor Nutter quickly stated he’d like Trump to be banned from Philadelphia if he could. And he added “He’s an a**hole,” which most people instantly agreed with.
“I’m generally against designing anything that could be construed as controversial, polarizing or outwardly hostile,” said Philly Phaithful owner Daniel Hershberg in a statement announcing the shirt’s release. “However, in this particular case, as an American — moreover, a human being — I view Trump’s rhetoric to be simultaneously shocking, inflammatory and irresponsible. I felt like making an exception to the rule.”
“I’m not looking to make a political statement with this shirt, rather, I simply feel that Philadelphians don’t tolerate BS and we wouldn’t benefit from his presence in the City of Brotherly Love,” Hershberg said.
