Mexican-American Artist Transforms Donald Trump into Butt Plug
Self-proclaimed “political sculptor” Fernando Sosa isn’t shy about expressing his opinion of newly-announced Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump. In fact, Sosa has created a miniature replica of the billionaire businessman in butt plug form.
That’s right, folks: a Donald Trump butt plug.
The hilarious 3D-printed item can be yours for just $27.99 on Sosa’s Shapeways online store—a small price to pay to mock a man who claimed in June that Mexico is bringing “drugs, crime, and rapists” to the United States.
“I’m no rapists (sic) and no drug dealer,” Sosa, who was born in Mexico and lived there until he was 11 years old before moving to the US, writes on his Shapeways page. “I have a college degree in 3D animation and run my own 3D printing business and guess what? I can make you into any shape I want and 3D print you and sell you to others who share their dislike of you.”
“Donald Trump is not a dumb man,” Sosa continues. “He decided to attack immigrants and specially Mexicans because he thinks we have no power…this is what the Republican party has evolved into. A bunch of racist Orangutans throwing shit at the wall and seeing what sticks or puts them on TV.”
Trump isn’t the first political figure to enjoy Sosa’s butt plug treatment. He’s also created replicas of Kim Jong Un, Vladimir Putin, and Toronto mayor Rob Ford.
Similarly, another artist recently created a Trump piñata in response to the same comments that outraged Sosa. The moral of the story? Don’t mess with artists.
The last artist to dabble in butt plug creation, Paul McCarthy, was attacked and beaten over a large, green, “abstract” public sculpture with an undeniable resemblance to the taboo sex toy. The sculpture was later vandalized.
Here’s to hoping Sosa’s tongue-in-cheek political commentary fares a whole lot better.
