So I figured I could definitely make some short term return on my investment if I buy some donald trump or hillary clinton t-shirts (that I make and have printed), and sell them. How can I do this legally?

I'm pretty sure I can't sell them online, but am I able to sell them at an amish market, or on the street, or at stadiums? Would love some ideas. I'm in Maryland, are there any state laws that would prevent me from doing this?

Thanks in advance.

    There are plenty of very large and respected websites that do this and, although it skirts a legal issue, no politician is ever going to sue.

    #1 - Political satire is protected under the 1st Amendment - even if it includes the name or likeness of an individual.

    #2- No politician is going to want the public and political backlash for suing someone over a freedom of speech issue.

      I agree with this guy, the politicians will not risk it to sue you. You can try whatever way you want to sell those shirt. Try new facebook's marketplace!
