The U.S. election season has reached a whole new level of absurdity now that Donald Trump voodoo dolls are selling like hotcakes in Seattle.
Voodoo dolls are effigies into which pins are inserted so that the person made into its likeness will suffer pain. It is commonly used in the occult.
However, Sally Noedell, a Bainbridge Island woman, thought of making these dolls to earn some extra cash.
"At first, I made a whole bunch of political figures, but Trump became the front-running doll really fast," Noedell told the Kitsap Sun. "This is the one most people most want to stick pins into."
Each "Trumpy" voodoo doll sells for $9.95 and comes with a plastic-wrapped selection of colourful pins and a list of six suggested "voodoo spells" to cast.
"If you hear Donald Trump say something about minority groups or women or any of the things he says that offend so many people, this is a harmless way to respond," Noedell said. "You can take out your pent-up feelings."
At first, Noedell sold the dolls only through Seattle-area Fireworks stores, but the demand for "Trumpy" dolls has gotten so huge that they now created the donaldtrumpvoodoo.com website.
Noedell added that the dolls are not just for anti-Trump Americans, because those who support the Republican presidential hopeful can also enjoy the voodoo "Trumpy."
"They don't have to stick it with pins," she said. "They could just cuddle it. Maybe cast happy spells on it."
If the demand for the dolls continues until the November election, Noedell hopes that she would end up a very rich woman. "I think this will continue at least to the (Republican) convention in July and probably on to November," she said. "If Donald Trump becomes president, that'd really boost sales. I might become a millionaire."
Folks that do stuff like this are mental.
Trump is already living in many of their heads.....now they are going to willingly bring a representation of him into their homes. Very cool.
Agreed, only pathetic loser women do things like this. It’s an angry ugly leftard woman thing.
He done voodoo, voodoo'd me;
He done voodoo, voodoo'd me.
Just about as mixed up as a gal can be,
He done voodoo, voodoo, voodoo'd me!

Imagine this being done with Obama. The Secret Service would be at their doors yesterday.
As much as it annoys me to have to say this, although disgusting as it is, there were Obama voodoo dolls, as well as Clinton and Bush.
Those on the other hand, never got the coverage that anything negative on President Trump.
Somebody needs to make a Give Hillary an Abortion doll.
In about three months, I’ll start a rumor that Sally Noedell is a Trump operative that used this ploy to get a list of the TDS crazies so they can be rounded up and “institutionalized”...
How about some Barack Obama dolls?
Funny voodoo comes up. I’ve been thinking that the leftists have already tried Russia!, Nazis!, the KKK!, and wondering what would be next. I thought perhaps it might be zombies. Hadn’t thought about voodoo. That would work.
I remember when the Chia company stopped selling one clay doll head because it looked too much like Omaba.
How about we stick things into actual liberal scum and make “real” voodoo dolls.
What things? Oh, I don’t know....how about lead or copper, moving at high velocity??
My Hillary doll must have worked. I put a pin in her head on 9/11 and on election night I drove a wooden stake in her heart around 10PM Eastern Standard Time!
A local art supply shop had a Bob Ross Chia pet kit.
A month or so ago I saw some young black guy wearing a Bob Ross T-shirt. I smiled. Things are looking up for this country. No more BO shirts, but Bob Ross instead!
Voodoo dolls are one thing, but I haven't heard anyone call bashing pinatas (of any celebrity likeness) a veiled threat.
Let’s do our own surge. Buy a KidRock CD.
Next thing you know they will call for the assassination of President Trump.
That ship has sailed.
