C’mon, you know you want to. No matter where you stand on the political spectrum, Republican candidate Donald Trump has to be getting on your nerves. Even if you thought he was a good idea at first, his complete deconstruction of the GOP has to have you rattled by now and tired of Trump’s “Loser” line. And if you’re even one step toward the center from bat-shit looney, you’ll can now take out your aggression on the Short-fingered Vulgarian in style. One business says it’s time to Punch Trump.
Inspired by a poll that said over half of Americans would like to punch him in the face–and The Don’s own penchant for violent talk on the campaign trail, a Los Angeles company has launched a line of punching bags with a caricature of Trump on them. While it may not “stop Trump,” the site punchtrump.co promises “Guaranteed Stress Relief.”
The WalletHub/SurveyMonkey poll was released in March.
“The guy at the punching bag factory—not kidding there is one–said that during the First Gulf War he sold 100’s of thousands of punching bags with Saddam Hussein‘s mug on them,” said Jeff Stevens, CEO of PS Enterprises. “I figure there’s 319 million American’s who will want to punch Trumps face soon enough. Plus that eagle that tried to bite him.”
The idea of to ask voters who they’d like to punch in the face the most no doubt came from an incident in February in Las Vegas where, while a protester was escorted out, Trump said, “I’d like to punch him in the face.”
Even yesterday Melania Trump brought up her husband’s violence at a rally, saying even women aren’t safe from his vengeance. According to NBC News, she said of the Republican candidate, “As you may know by now, when you attack him he will punch back 10 times harder. No matter who you are, a man or a woman, he treats everyone equal.”
The Trump and Cruz wife debate could get even uglier next time around.
The bags start at $19.95 for a desk sized model–What too small for you? “Trust me there’s no problem there!” In any case, there’s a four foot tall version at $34.95. Just fill with sand or water, inflate, and wale away on the man who dragged the American political process backwards by decades, maybe centuries. It’s your own little #NeverTrump party.
