Vegan "Donald Trump Getting Punched in the Face" Donuts for Sale in NYC!
This past Friday New Yorkers were treated with a delicious way to indulge both their sweet tooth and their animosity toward the (unbelievable) rise of Republican nominee frontrunner Donald Drumpf. Er, Trump. Cinnamon Snail, formerly a vegan food truck and now located in The Pennsy food hall, announced it would be selling just 48 special edition “Donald Trump Getting Punched in the Face” donuts.
Each of the vegan lemon curd-filled and meyer lemon-glazed donuts were topped with a rendering of the bigoted candidate being socked right in his notoriously pouty kisser. They took 30 minutes each to decorate and sold out completely within 10 minutes. Each donut sold for $9, with profits going to the New York Immigration Coalition, because hell yes. Owner Karl Custer said on the (now deleted) Instagram post that the doughnuts will:
“… provide all of the satisfaction of punching trump [sic] in the face, without actual violence, and without getting his reptilian nazi skin slime all over your hand.”
While sublimating our anger via noshing on delicious vegan donuts may provide some relief for a moment, please also consider donating your time, voice, and – most importantly – your vote to fighting injustice everywhere it rears its ugly head.
