This Trump troll doll will ease your political anxieties (NOT! SAD!)

An American sculptor has put up a Kickstarter project to mass produce his latest creation, a naked little troll doll that resembles the ex-reality star and now president of the United States, Donald Trump.

One month into Trump’s presidency and things sure look promising. He has the lowest approval rate at the one-month mark of any president in American history, has labeled the free press as enemies of the people and has spent millions of tax dollars in his son’s business trips and his relaxing escapades to Mar-a-Lago every weekend.

He’s also insulted a federal Judge, hung up on Prime Minister Turnbull and has avoided so far to reveal his tax returns despite being requested by a million people on the official White House site.

Not bad for a being in office for just a month, eh? Should he be aiming for a tremendous, tremendous impeachment?

The political climate in the world is pretty heated up, with anxiety levels very high right now. One just has to take a peek at Twitter to see how polarized the discussion is.

Chuck Williams is an ex-Disney senior sculptor with tons of experience creating animation maquettes and consumer products. Amidst the convoluted political climate he decided to design this unique troll doll and post it on Facebook as a jest. The idea got a lot of traction so he decided to put up this Kickstarter to make it a reality.

Williams wrote in his Kickstarter page “This figure is near and dear to me and thankfully it seems to have brought a smile to all sides of the political spectrum. The response has taken me a little by surprise!! I am very grateful to have made so many people happy with this sculpture.”

“I want to make this figure widely available to everyone around the world that has taken a liking to my caricature sculpture and to do that I need your help to cover the costs of making the production molds and castings as well as the freight costs from the toy factory.”

You can help his campaign for just $5 or pledge $25 to have a 4.75″ Trump doll of your own.

Williams is not the first to make dolls to match the current US political turmoil. Back in September, Brooklyn-based design company FCTRY successfully put out a similar campaign for their Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump statues, and even created a neat Bernie Sanders action figure.

Earlier in the month, we had information about LEGO developing a Steve Bannon figure. The project was ultimately canceled because initial research found it would be just too scary for children.

Yeah yeah, OK, we accept it. This last bit is fake news. #fakenews. SAD!
