Not all Mexicans hate “The Donald.” Trump has faced a barrage of criticism after comments that Mexicans were bringing “drugs, crime and rapists” to the United States in a June 16 speech kicking off his 2016 presidential campaign.
Dalton Ramirez, an artist in Reynosa, Mexico, is all smiles. He has created a piñata that eerily resembles Mr. Trump. “It’s my biggest selling piñata, by far,” said Ramirez. “People just want to smash his face.”
“I just can’t stock enough of these piñatas,” said Ramirez. “I am forced to hire extra help.” In his kickoff speech, Trump did boast that, if elected, he would be the “greatest jobs president God ever created.” It appears Trump has already started delivering on that promise.
While many of the piñatas are filled with candy, some are stuffed with nothing but hot air. As Ramirez remarked, “There are some customers that just want to burn the thing.”
“In only a few days,” said Ramirez,” the Trump piñata has overtaken my previous best seller, Steve King.” Rep. King of Iowa famously asserted that children of some immigrants were being used as “drug mules.”
Oh those Republican job creators!
