In an apparent bid to skewer his chances at the presidency from the start, Donald Trump launched his campaign with a racist rant, calling Mexicans rapists during his campaign announcement on Tuesday. With this move, The Donald has already effectively alienated his Latino voters, who are being touted "the awakened giant" of voter demographics.
But his PR team didn't seem to think that enough damage had been done. Trump tried to clarify his stance on Mexicans through his Twitter account, saying that he "loved Mexicans" before calling them rapists again.
I like Mexico and love the spirit of Mexican people, but we must protect our borders from people, from all over, pouring into the U.S.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 20, 2015
Mexico is killing the United States economically because their leaders and negotiators are FAR smarter than ours. But nobody beats Trump!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 20, 2015
Druggies, drug dealers, rapists and killers are coming across the southern border. When will the U.S. get smart and stop this travesty?— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 20, 2015
Mexicans, understandably, did not take his statement lightly. They also deemed it below them to grace his insulting remarks with an actual reply. Ever the people of style, Mexicans created a piñata of Trump and let it do the talking for them.
We're sure the line to beat the Trump piñata with a stick was long indeed.
This is also not the first time Mexico has channeled fury at someone with an artistic piñata. When Dutch soccer star Arjen Robben's controversial penalty ousted Mexico from the World Cup last year, he too, was made into a piñata.
