Behold Donald ‘Trumpkin’ In All His Pumpkin-y Wonder
Whether you like Donald Trump or not, we’re sure you’re going to love Donald Trumpkin even more. Jeanette Paras, of Dublin, Ohio, is making headlines Wednesday morning after photos of a giant 374-pound pumpkin painted with a caricature of the Republican presidential candidate began to go viral.
“I just ‘pumpkinize’ whoever is visible in the media over the time,” said Paras. Paras has been painting likenesses on giant pumpkins since 1988. Last year, she used a 384-pound pumpkin for North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un. She’s painted Miley Cyrus as a wrecking ball, Phil Robertson from Duck Dynasty, Bill Clinton and Monica Lewinsky, as well as more. This year’s choice was an easy one for Paras. “He’s just everywhere. There were some other characters under consideration, which I can’t tell you.” Even Trump’s campaign slogan, “Make America Great Again,” was rebranded for the Fall season with a sign on Paras’ front lawn reading, “Make pumpkins great again.” Paras, who insists she’s not an artist, says she does the likenesses just for fun and to help “bring laughter and delight to the people who come see her creations,” FOX 8 reported. “Anything you can do in life that people can enjoy just for a moment is special. It cracks me up so that’s why I do it,” she said. As if Pumpkin Spice wasn’t already ruined, now we have Donald Trump tainting it even more. Ugh, stop it.
