Lawyer Makes Trump Toilet Paper to Benefit Deported Immigrants


President Donald Trump has put his name on a lot of things: buildings, golf courses, steaks, vodka, and even more buildings. Now a lawyer in Mexico wants to slap POTUS’ stamp on a new brand of toilet paper, and it will benefit a pro-immigrant cause. Preliminary designs for Trump Paper packaging carries the promise “Este si apoya a los migrantes.” If you can’t quite remember 8th grade Spanish, that’s an oath that proceeds will go to pro-migrant groups.

The Mexican attorney behind the product, Antonio Battaglia, promised that 30 percent of sales are meant to benefit immigrants deported from the United States. This Guanajuato-based lawyer told Expansión, a CNN Spanish-language affiliate, he was turned off by Trump’s anti-Mexico tone during the 2016 campaign season. He wanted to fight against the notion that migrants heading to the U.S. were “Bad Hombres.”

“It bothered me, and I wanted to do something that could make change, not by mocking or through retaliation, but in a positive manner,” he told the outlet in an interview about his product that depicts an anthropomorphic toilet paper roll with the president’s signature hair.

Battaglia had tried to make Trump shoes in 2015 because his family were shoemakers, but the POTUS’ name was already trademarked, he said.

“Later, I came up with the idea for toilet paper, which would be ironic, and last a long time on the market,” he said. The plan is to start production at year’s end.

A quick Google search will show you that this will hardly be the first Trump toilet paper being sold.
