The Mexican Lawyer Behind Trump Toilet Paper Says Part Of The Profits Will Go To Help Deportees

If you happen to have any Donald Trump memorabilia you should be very aware that it’s worth a lot of money. The New York Post is reporting that there’s a huge market for items with Trump’s signature and pictures of the man himself. The items can go upward from $800 to $12,000. Now, there’s a new item that could soon become a collector’s item.

According to Expansión, a man in Mexico just created Trump-themed toilet paper.

The best part? Some of the proceeds from the sales of the toilet paper will go to help migrants and Mexicans deported from the United States.

The Trump toilet paper was created by Antonio Battaglia, a Mexican lawyer, who wanted to prove that not all Mexicans are “bad hombres.”

“I was very annoyed and I started looking for a way to do something that had an impact, not in a tone of mockery or bad revenge, but in a positive way,” Battaglia said in an interview with Expansión.

The Trump toilet paper, which will be for sale later this year, wasn’t Battaglia’s first idea.

“I tried to register a brand of clothing or footwear, because my family is dedicated to the production of shoes, and there I thought it was a possibility, but the ‘Trump’ brand was already registered. Then came the idea of ​​producing a toilet paper, a product that was ironic and that remained in the market for a good time,” Battaglia told Expansión.

Battaglia says a chunk of the profits will go to groups in Guanajuato, where he grew up.

Not only is his family in the shoe business, but Battaglia has his own law firm, and his grandfather is a the professional football player, Antonio Félix Battaglia, who played for Argentina and Mexico.

Battaglia told Expansión, “At the outset, I hope to allocate 30% of the profit to organizations in Guanajuato.”

The entire production will be made in Mexico.

The Trump toilet paper isn’t the first sanitary napkin that allows you to wipe your ass with the Trump image.

During the presidential campaign, American Art Classics created a Trump and Hillary Clinton rolls of toilet paper.

You can still purchase it on Amazon for $12.95.

Latinos For Trump Posted A Collage Of Flag For Hispanic Heritage Month And Got Some Wrong

Latinos For Trump Posted A Collage Of Flag For Hispanic Heritage Month And Got Some Wrong

Latinos for Trump has long been a confusing organization in the Latino community. President Donald Trump has built his administration and brand to be squarely against people of color. Now, the Latinos for Trump group caused a stir when they posted a collage of flags that are not quite right.

Latinos for Trump really thought they had something when they posted their Hispanic Heritage Month collage.

The first, and most obvious mistake, is that the Mexican flag is backwards. The flag is supposed to be green, white, and red in that order. As we can all see, the collage has a Mexican flag that is red, white, and green. The eagle is even facing the wrong way so someone literally flipped the flag the wrong way.

Of course, some people tried to make sense of the bizarre Mexican flag snafu.

Last year, the Trump administration announced that it was cutting aid to three countries in Central America. The countries were El Salvador, Honduras, and Guatemala. Fox & Friends picked up the story but told their audience that Trump was cutting aid to “3 Mexican countries.” Perhaps this Twitter user is right and the Latinos for Trump are trying to suggest the existence of other Mexicos.

Someone else pointed out the issues with the Guatemalan flag in the top right corner.

People are very defensive about their cultural heritage and national origin. Messing up someone’s flag is a very serious issue for people. Just ask a Cuban or Puerto Rican about people confusing their flags. It is never a good thing.

Some people fixed the image for them so the organization can see what it should have looked like.

Good, clean lines with all of the flags facing the right way. The creator even changed the message in the middle for the Latino community. It is clear that social media is still willing to show up and teach a couple of lessons here and there.

Others had a more direct message for Latinos for Trump.

We all know that social media is where things go to be manipulated and made fun of. It is very important that if you make something for social media that you take good care to make sure that you check all of the right boxes and execute your work right the first time.

It is Mexico’s Independence Day and that means that Mexicans around the world are honoring their roots. Twitter is buzzing with people who might not be in Mexico but they will forever have Mexico in their hearts. Here are just a few of the loving messages from people who are Mexican through and through.

Viva Mexico is trending on social media and the tweets are filled with love and passion for the country.

Mexico received its independence from Spain on September 16, 1810 and since then the day has been marked with celebration. The day is marked with parties of pride and culture no matter where you are in the world.

Mexicans everywhere are letting their Mexican flag fly.

Tbh, who doesn’t want to be Mexican to enjoy the day of puro pinche pride? The celebration for Mexican Independence Day starts on Sept. 15 with El Grito. The tradition is that the president of Mexico stands on the balcony on Sept. 15 at 11 p.m. and rings the same church bell that Roman Catholic priest Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla rang in 1810 to trigger the Mexican Revolution.

People are loving all of the celebrations for their homeland.

The original El Grito took place in Dolores Hidalgo, Guanajuato in 1810. While most El Grito celebrations take place at the National Palace, some presidents, especially on their last year, celebrate El Grito in the town where it originated.

Honestly, no one celebrates their independence day like Mexico and we love them for it.

¡Viva Mexico! Mexico lindo y querido. How are you celebrating the Mexican Independence Day this year? Show us what you have planned.
