On pinatas, or how to relieve your political frustrations in Trump world

A woman hits the Donald Trump piñata during a rally at Mission and 16th streets against Donald Trump and his immigration remarks, Sunday, July 19, 2015, in San Francisco, California. Protesters marched along Mission Street and held a final demonstration at 24th Street.

Trump piñatas a hit across cultures  [headline in Sunday’s Tribune A+E section]


It seems Trump pinatas are now a big thing;

From south of the border to maybe Beijing.

Until we impeach him,

It’s one way to teach him,

And if I could do it, I’d take a good swing.

  • When do the Obama pinatas go on sale?

  • In reply to Dennis Byrne:

    When you regain your cognitive abilities.

    Just as you mentioned this, your former employer had a story Barack and Michelle Obama sign Netflix production deal.

    Among other things:
    "Barack and Michelle Obama are among the world's most respected and highly-recognized public figures and are uniquely positioned to discover and highlight stories of people who make a difference in their communities and strive to change the world for the better," said Netflix Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos. "We are incredibly proud they have chosen to make Netflix the home for their formidable storytelling abilities."

    I bet you, your good buddy Chef, and your man with the Orange Countenance will be lining up to get your subscriptions. In the meantime, your and Chef's candidate cannot be said as being "most respected." In fact, the admitted payer of blackmail isn't respected at all. All hail the pinata smashers.

    Your response? Chef's? Of course not.

  • In a similar vein, even if you hit it in the head, you don't get any candy, because it personifies a con and is empty.

  • I'd probably get in trouble hitting a Trump pinata. After all, I'm left-handed, and somebody's sure to holler about an attack from the left.

  • In reply to Margaret H. Laing:

    You are absolutely right. We should be bipartisan about this. Put both hands on the stick and then swing with all your might. Thank you.

  • In reply to Aquinas wired:

    It also depends on whether she uses the approach angle indicated in the illustration.
