President Donald Trump is renowned for his Twitter trolling and now one artist has decided to give America's commander-in-chief a taste of his own medicine. Chuck Williams, a 56-year-old sculptor who resides in upstate Wisconsin created the Trump troll doll as way of coping with the distress that came with Trump emerging president.
The 4.75-inch tall and 4-inch wide toy also comes with a little Android cell phone in hand so President Troll is always Twitter ready. For $25, you can pre-order one. Williams, a former senior staff sculptor for the Walt Disney Company in Burbank, California, who has sculpted professionally for film, theme parks, toys and collectibles for 30 years said:
“I was as surprised as everyone else that Trump was elected. I just found myself sculpting a caricature of him to release some steam.”
As to why the doll which has a visible miniature penis is so graphic, Williams said:
“I sculpted him NSFW to make it clear that I sculpted the entire figure and did not simply sculpt a head on an existing toy body. And I wanted to be a bit insulting. Tiny hands you know.”
Williams posted a photo of the first Trump troll doll he made on Facebook and soon, friends wanted theirs too so he decided to start a Kickstarter campaign to cover the manufacturing of so many figures.
The doll is only available on pre-order as the sculptor is still trying to find a quality factory to make them. He hopes the dolls will begin being made and distributed in the next few months, but it could take up to a year.
