First, it was a "prayer circle" with a group of Wiccans in support of U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders (D-Vt.) in Portland, Oregon. Now, it's a Donald Trump "voodoo prayer" doll being manufactured in neighboring Washington State.
The fringes of the political and cultural Left are turning up the absurdity in 2016.
According to a report in the Kitsap Sun, a Seattle gift shop chain has begun selling the voodoo dolls, which retail for about $10 each. They are manufactured by Sally Noedell, a Bainbridge Island woman, who says she's now having trouble keeping up with demand for her "Trumpy" dolls.
In addition to selling the dolls through the Seattle-area Fireworks stores, she self-markets them on the donaldtrumpvoodoo.com website. Although she markets them as a "gag" gift, the packaging, according to the website, includes "six spells and seven pins," and users are encouraged to "just pop open the package, pull out a pin, and make Trump jump whenever you hear a cringeworthy Trump quote or news story."
"What will it take to slow The Donald down? Don't just sit there, do your part with a Trumpy Voodoo Doll," the website states. "Pins for each day of the week in each pack, in rainbow colors. Magical spells included ... Head is stuffed with fiberfill, just like the real Donald."
Originally, Noedell did all the work herself, but has since had to outsource some of the work to an Arizona company. She said that if the demand keeps up through the November election, she could become quite rich.
"I think this will continue at least to the (Republican) convention in July and probably on to November," she told the local newspaper. "If Donald Trump becomes president, that'd really boost sales. I might become a millionaire."
