Hispanics in St. Louis celebrated Mexican Independence Day over the weekend by hanging Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump in effigy.
The Cherokee Street celebration included a HUGE piñata that bore a striking resemblance to the real estate tycoon. True to form, a select few party-goers got a chance to swing away at “EL Trumpo,” as the piñata was named on a Facebook page set-up for the event.
“Is there anything more American than whacking the hell out of a Donald Trump pinata?” a social media user asked.
The event was hosted by the restaurant Yaquis, and parts of the festivities were captured on video:

“This is for la raza [the race], for the people,” said a man addressing revelers. “Having a different color, having a different language, having a different nationality is a beautiful thing. The United States was founded on a melting pot of people.”
Another man took care to single out Trump.
“We’re really mad that this guy is saying that all the Spanish people, they’re rapists and animals,” the second man said, followed by “Viva Mexico!”
Here are a few more images of “El Trumpo,” with commentary, from Twitter:
