The naked Trump troll doll he probably wants noone to see just got fully funded

Joseph McCormick February 21, 2017

A crowdfunded campaign to mass produce a naked troll doll version of President Trump has been fully funded within days of being listed.

The Kickstarter campaign was started by former Disney sculptor Chuck Williams earlier this month.

The naked doll takes criticisms that Trump is a “troll” to a whole new level.

Similar to the famous Troll dolls first produced in the 1960s, it even features Trump’s signature comb-over.

Writing on the fundraising page, which has raised $60,000 from over a thousand donors, Williams said he wanted the doll to be readily available.

He wrote: “This figure is near and dear to me and thankfully it seems to have brought a smile to all sides of the political spectrum. The response has taken me a little by surprise!! I am very grateful to have made so many people happy with this sculpture.”

Adding: “I want to make this figure widely available to everyone around the world that has taken a liking to my caricature sculpture and to do that I need your help to cover the costs of making the production moulds and castings as well as the freight costs from the toy factory.”

The first versions of the doll are expected to ship to backers in March.

Williams says he needs to find the best manufacturer for the product.

He worked as a sculptor at Disney between 1995 and 2000.

This is not the first time Trump has been made into a doll. Back in 2015 someone (for some reason) turned him into a sex doll.

And in case you missed it, this tiny Trump meme is one we never knew we needed in our lives – but definitely do.

The Trump administration last month officially revoked guidance protecting transgender students in public schools.

Previously, as introduced by the Obama administration, public schools were instructed to allow trans students to use bathrooms and locker rooms matching their gender identity.

Title IX was used in drafting the guidelines, which were seen as an interpretation of the federal non-discrimination law.

But the new letter from the White House states that the previous guidelines did not “contain extensive legal analysis or explain how the position is consistent with the express language of Title IX, nor did they undergo any formal public process.”
