tru2There are most various views circulating of US presidential contender and real estate mogul Donald Trump, who seeks the Republican Party nomination for the next 2016 presidential election in November. You may see Trump’s meteoric rise in the political world as an aberration. His popularity is a thing that can pass in time, as the voting US can no doubt become sensible of choosing additional experienced and well-groomed candidates who can do the job without the loose cannon rhetoric and vitriolic flair that has marked Trump’s candidacy so far. Sound acquainted? Or, like the new Trump rally protesters in Chicago, St. Louis, and Kansas City, you may view his candidacy as a serious threat to US democracy — replete with hate speech that has violent real world consequences we can not afford to ignore.

Regardless of your specific views, there’s a sturdy argument to be created that Donald Trump is stressing folks out across the political spectrum. (He obviously has a stressful effect on his supporters as well as his opponents.) Why not take that stress out on a 3D printed replica of Trump’s infamous, toupee-d head?
