Flavorwire showed you, not long ago, how a Mexican artist responding to Trump’s disparaging remarks about immigrants was enabling people to — as an act of private protest — anally dildo themselves with a teensy Trump bust. Now, Syrian artist Saint Hoax has made a Donald Trump blow-up doll whose proceeds will go to Syrian refugees.
This work (“the work” being, of course, the most upsetting sex doll you’ve ever seen) follows a similar model to that of the butt plug in that it’s in direct response to yet another sweepingly offensive statement — and Trump’s punishment is becoming a useless sexual commodity. (If Trump keeps making gross generalizations, we could soon have an entire sex shop selling strictly Donald Trump-themed toys on our hands.)
Giving a speech in New Hampshire, Trump recently said that if he becomes President, he’d deport Syrian refugees:
I’m putting people on notice that are coming here from Syria as part of this mass migration, that if I win, they’re going back!…They could be ISIS…This could be one of the great tactical ploys of all time. A 200,000-man army maybe, or if you said 50,000 or 80,000 or 100,000, we got problems and that could be possible. I don’t know that it is, but it could be possible so they’re going back — they’re going back.
“He would probably expect me to respond with terrorizing threats, rage and hate. On the contrary, I will respond with satire, art and dolls,” responded Saint Hoax on Instagram, explaining both the dimensions and concept behind their #BlowUpTrump, who could be yours for a mere $39:
Almost 2 weeks ago, Trump stated that he’s sending Syrian refugees back if he wins. He also added that ISIS could be disguising its troops as Syrian refugees. Being a Syrian citizen myself, I felt that need to react. Given the fact that Trump thinks of us as “ISIS” members in disguise”, he would probably expect me to respond with terrorizing threats, rage and hate. On the contrary, I will respond with satire, art and dolls. Trump’s take on the Syrian crisis along with other racist / sexist statements that he made in the past led me to create this project. #BlowUpTrump is an inflatable doll produced in China (pun intended). Like Trump, the 5-foot doll is filled with nothing but air. Without the air that you exhale into it, this doll is as empty as Trump’s statements. You can pre-order Blow Up Trump now. The net proceeds of the project will be donated to the UNHCR: UN Refugee Agency who is currently helping Syrian refugees. (Not available at the moment) Photo credit: @plastikmagazine @elirezkallah
And, should you (very quickly) tire of your Blow Up Trump, it comes packaged with needle with which to pop it. The process is quite simple:
