A former Walt Disney Company staff sculptor has started a Kickstarter campaign to manufacture a Donald Trump troll sculpture – and with 20 days to go has more than quintupled his initial pledge goal.
The Trump Troll
The Kickstarter campaign is based around a small troll doll – stationary dolls that have been popular in the United States since the 1960s – with the likeness of Donald Trump.
The naked doll’s visage is complete with the president’s famous coiffe and an eerily identical face.
The doll also boasts tiny hands, presumably to mock the president’s previous boasts comparing the largeness of his hands to the size of his manhood. One of the hands is holding a smartphone, mocking the president’s propensity for social media usage.
Perhaps the most glaring thing about the 4.5-inch-tall doll, however, is its laughably small penis.
The campaign was begun by Chuck Williams, a resident of Wisconsin who worked as a Walt Disney Company staff sculptor in the 1990s.
Williams – who now runs a studio with his wife, Lynne – says on the Kickstarter campaign page that the doll appears to have resonated with those in his community.
The sculpture seems to have struck a very popular chord with my family and friends on Facebook.
He also mentions that the doll has managed to bridge partisan divides, a phenomenon that has thus far ironically been absent in the administration of the chief executive.
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.
Williams states that the dolls – which he constructs in his shop out of vinyl and resin – will hopefully be available in the next several months; however, likely because of overwhelming demand, those in the comments section of the listing state that they were informed the doll is unlikely to arrive until 2018.
