Donald Trump is running for president with all the grace of a three-legged dog chasing a ball and with absolutely none of the cuteness. One of the many unpleasant jibes in his campaign announcement last month was about Mexico:
When [it] sends its people, [it’s] not sending [its] best…[it’s] sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems to us. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people!
Fernando Sosa, a Mexican-born US citizen, has the perfect response. He specializes in using 3D printing for political satire and has previously made caricatures of Hillary Clinton, Vladimir Putin and Kim Jong Un.
F**k it, we'll do it live!

His take on Trump sums up ‘the Donald’ more directly than a late night monologue or ‘Daily Show’ spot: It’s a butt plug.
Sosa passionately explains his reasons for creating the object on his Shapeways page, where it is available to buy for $27.99:
[This is my] response to Donald Trump’s remarks…I say screw you and your Republican Party. I was not sent here by the Mexican government. I came here with my family thanks to my step-father, who is also an immigrant from Finland. We came here looking for the American Dream and my parents worked their butts off so my brothers and I could go to college or serve in the armed forces.
I’m no rapist and no drug dealer. 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.
…You are a public figure and me making you into a butt plug is freedom of speech. Welcome to America, motherfucker!
It’s an eloquent disavowal of Trump’s claims and politics, but in the end, a satirical butt plug is worth more than a thousand words.
Here’s how TNW HQ responded to seeing the TrumpPlug:
