Getting even can feel so good. That's why artist Dalton Ramirez is making a pinata that looks like Donald Trump. He wants to give people a way to hit back at the real estate mogul, who described Mexican migrants to the U.S. as drug-runners, criminals and rapists, in his bid for the U.S. presidency. SOUNDBITE: Dalton Ramirez, artist making Trump pinata, saying (Spanish): "Normally I don't care if the pinatas I made will be broken, but especially this pinata, we could say, is the one that everyone want to break. When we were making it, we said, 'Let's break it, let's do something to it,' because we're angry because of what he said." Dressed in a suit and featuring Trump's hallmark hairstyle, the pinata gestures with his left hand while talking out of a BIG open mouth. Ramirez says The Donald's words fuel the discrimination that Mexican migrants already experience. SOUNDBITE: Dalton Ramirez, artist making Trump pinata, saying (Spanish): "Most of the people who visit us here, because we're at the border, are people (with Mexican roots) who live in the U.S, and yes they suffer, we can say from a type of discrimination, a lack of rights and many things. So when this man talks about them, publicly, he promotes discrimination and it is something serious for us." While pinatas are usually filled with candy and blindfolded children use sticks to break them open, we're pretty sure this one will draw an older crowd that will forgo the blindfolds.
