The funniest part of this exchange is MAGA man's confused reaction when O'Sullivan asks him if he's from Ohio. I don't suppose this guy ever thought his rudeness would end up helping out a Muslim charity in Ireland.

Donie O'Sullivan, CNN'S resident Irish correspondent, probably had a hunch that his interaction with a MAGA man at a recent Trump rally in Ohio would probably go viral, but it's unlikely he could have foreseen the exchange being turned into a T-shirt for charity in his native Ireland.

“What’s your name, sir?” O’Sullivan asks the MAGA hat-wearing man.

“My name is Go F*** Yourself,” the man replies.

“Right. And are you from Ohio?” the unflappable O’Sullivan continues.

No,” MAGA-man replies.

On June 27, O’Sullivan shared a clip of the interaction on his Twitter account that has since gone on to be viewed more than 2.3 million times and liked more than 47.2k times:

And the t-shirt the exchange inspired. Sales of the t-shirts will benefit the Irish charity Muslim Sisters of Eire.
