This 3D-printed Donald Trump butt plug is, suffice to say, not official campaign merchandise.

Artist Fernando Sosa has found a novel way to protest at Donald Trump’s recent comments about Mexican immigrants: he’s turned the Republican presidential candidate into a butt plug.
Sosa used 3D printing technology to create the decidedly-unofficial merchandise, which he is selling from his store on the Shapeways website for £21.34. The plug is made from full-colour sandstone, promising “a coarse finish and a delicate feel”.
“I usually make Butt plugs to insult dictators, homophobes and politicians. However, when I heard Donald Trump’s remarks about Mexicans and latinos from South America I was extremely angry,” explained Sosa in the product listing, adding that he was born and raised in Mexico before moving to the US aged 11.
“Donald Trump is not a dumb man. He might have been born with a silver spoon and declared bankruptcy four or five times but he is not dumb. He decided to attack immigrants and specially Mexicans because he thinks we have no power,” wrote Sosa.
Trump faced fierce criticism in June after claiming that Mexico is sending “rapists” and drug dealers to the US – with Sosa attacking the comments too.“I’m no rapists and no drug dealer. I have a college degree in 3D animation and run my own 3D printing business and guess what? I can make you into any shape I want and 3D print you and sell you to others who share their dislike of you.Trump joins Kim Jong Un, Toronto mayor Rob Ford and Vladimir Putin in Sosa’s catalogue of 3D-printed products.
You can threaten to sue me like you have done hundreds of times to others. However, you are a public figure and me making you into a shape of a butt plug is Freedom of speech. Welcome to America Mother Fucker!!”
Trump has yet to comment on the butt-plug tribute.
