Jimmy Kimmel launched a frightening spoof alternative to the Elf on the Shelf on Friday.

Introducing: Trump on a Stump ― the perfect comedic antidote to some of President-elect Donald Trump’s terrifying policies.

Kimmel said he feared the relatively new tradition of parents moving around their home a toy elf that Santa Claus purportedly sent to spy on kids in the run-up to Christmas was “starting to lose its gravitas.”

I noticed the kids are not so worried about it any more, they don’t fear the elf any more,” the comedian said. “So this year we came up with a new product that I hope will make your kids behave bigly.”

Trump on a Stump doesn’t report back to Santa on who is being naughty or nice, however. This toy reports directly to the Pentagon — ensuring every misbehaving child will be immediately dealt with.
