Donald Trump piñatas fly off shelves in Mexico; who didn’t see that coming?

Business tycoon Donald Trump sparked the creative-entrepreneurial spirit in at least one Mexican national who is fighting mad over the billionaire’s controversial statements regarding illegal immigration.

Hence, Donald Trump piñatas have become all the rage in Mexico.

The piñatas, sporting untamed blond hair and a large mouth, were created by Dalton Ramirez, and are flying off store shelves, according to Fox News.

Ramirez’s idea to create the party game in Trump’s likeness came after the presidential contender blasted Mexico for being a not-so-friendly neighbor.

“When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best. […] They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems with us. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists,” Trump said while announcing his run for president.

“And some, I assume, are good people.”


Trump has since tried to explain his comments, maintaining he loves the Mexican people but is vehemently against “bad” trade deals, and an unprotected southern border.

Trump’s clarification, however, doesn’t seem to be enough to quell the pile-on.

NBCUniversal joined Univision in denouncing Trump, and will not broadcast Trump’s upcoming Miss USA and Miss Universe pageants because of his original comments.

The billionaire’s incendiary presidential announcement was also the catalyst for Ramirez’s new party-game invention. After all, what better way to take out frustration aimed at Trump than to take literal swipes at his head?

“This piñata especially is the one everyone wants to break,” Ramirez said.

Knowing Trump, as long as Ramirez can make a buck, he’ll probably want a cut.
