If all goes well in November, Donald Trump will not be the 45th president of the United States. At this point, that’s about as much of a political statement as saying “boy, I hope an asteroid doesn’t hit the earth tomorrow.” But just in case the unthinkable comes true, a Chinese toy company is stocking up for our The Purge-inspired future by doubling down on their production of Donald Trump masks. The Jinhua Partytime Latex Art and Crafts Factory is molding shockingly realistic saggy pink-colored Trump masks as fast as it can, as well as hedging their bets by putting out as many Hillary Clinton faces as possible.
Partytime’s management also thinks Trump is going to be the next president, even though sales of his mask are about the same as Hillary’s are at the moment, an eerily mirroring the latest polls.
“Even though the sales are more or less the same, I think in 2016 this mask will completely sell out,” factory manager Jacky Chen told the Japan Times
When Japan Times asked a worker, 43-year-old Liu Dahua, if he knew whose face he was replicating in silicone and rubber, Dahua’s answer was terrifyingly prophetic. “It’s the president of the U.S., right?” he said.
And just in case you’re worried about getting a bad deal, the masks sell for about five bucks, making them a great deal, maybe the best deal, we can absolutely say that you will never get bad deal on these masks (if you’re a wholesale Halloween-costume-supply importer).
