Green Day have announced the limited-time sale of a t-shirt featuring Donald Trump‘s mugshot for charity.
The t-shirt, titled ‘Ultimate Nimrod’, is currently available for a limited amount of time, with proceeds from the sale of the merchandise being used to “bring food to those affected by the Maui wildfires,” per a post from the band on Instagram. Green Day are teaming up with the Greater Good Music Charity for the cause.
According to a phot of the t-shirt shared by the band, the merch uses Trump’s viral mugshot to recreate their iconic ‘Nimrod’ cover, with the album’s title covering Trump’s face.

The limited-run t-shirt is available for just 72 hours, with the clock already ticking. Get your t-shirt here for just US$35.

Earlier this week, Donald Trump’s mugshot turned into a viral meme following his arrest. On Thursday (August 24), the former US president surrendered in Georgia on charges of plotting to overturn the state’s 2020 election results. Trump had to pay a bail bond of $200,000 (£160,000) to be released from the Atlanta jail, and now awaits trial. He later described the case as “a travesty of justice”.
This marked the fourth time in five months that Trump has been arrested in a criminal case, but it’s the first time a police booking photo has been taken of the former president.
Trump has 13 charges against him, which include racketeering, soliciting a public official to violate his oath of office, conspiracy to impersonate a public officer, conspiracy to commit forgery, and making false statements. He denies all of the counts against him.
Following his arrest and eventual release on Thursday, he told reporters that he was entitled to challenge the result of a vote (via BBC News). “I thought the election was a rigged election, a stolen election,” said Trump, who has made numerous unfounded claims of widespread ballot fraud in 2020. “And I should have every right to do that.”
