Mexicans Take A Lesson On Making Money From Trump

I would like to take a couple of whacks with the bat at this one myself. Even the Donald can admire their capitalist spirit.

MEXICO CITY — After Donald Trump’s Mexico-bashing comments this week, Mexicans are engaging in a little Trump-bashing of their own.

Call it revenge, Mexican style. Artisan Dalton Avalos Ramirez launched a Trump pinata Friday, featuring The Donald’s inimitable hairstyle and a big, big mouth.

The papier-mache figure will come in a variety of sizes. The first was on display at the Pinatas Ramirez store in the border city of Reynosa.

Avalos Ramirez said he created it “because of the hatred Trump expressed for the Mexican people.”
He said “people want to burn the pinatas, they want to break them. People are angry.”

During his presidential campaign kickoff speech Tuesday, Trump accused Mexican immigrants of bringing drugs, crime and rapists to the U.S.
Trump recently caused quite a controversy when announcing his run for president and calling for a great wall to be built in order to stop illegal immigration from Mexico to the United States.
The U.S. has become a dumping ground for everybody else’s problems. When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best. They’re not sending you. 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. And some, I assume, are good people.” 
He's a charmer. Isn't he?

I bet that pinata has no candy in it, only hot air.

a brilliant observation. I wish I would have thought of it. I did imagine the candy being that crappy black cat Halloween toffee.

Yeah...I wouldn't bother putting any candy in it and just beating the hell out of it.
