Have you cringed every time Trump — our president (still gives us shivers up our spines to say this) — mocks or demeans Muslims, immigrants, members of the LGBTQ community... well, hell, anyone who isn't a cisgender white male?
You're not alone. And one ad agency is doing something positive with the president: 01 Agency, a Latino boutique ad agency in LA, has created the Trump Candle, a sickly-yellowish candle in the likeness of our fearless leader (seriously, shivers and nausea) that burns down to nothing.
"The Trump Candle symbolizes the hope the whole planet shares: Time will pass and all the gibberish will soon melt away right in front of our eyes," the website reads.
Why a candle (other than the obvious beauty of what happens when you light it)?
"Our goal is to create a movement provoking an effect á la [the] Olympic torch, inviting people to light the Trump candle, either virtually by sharing the video through social media (the candle lights up once you press play) or by purchasing the Trump candle and lighting it at your home or business. We believe it is a different approach to maintain this issue open, not only in the United States but throughout the world," creators say.
They're selling them for $39.95 and donating 30% of the profits to "social issues he chooses to neglect," according to the company's Trump-specific website. That 30% will go to The Trevor Project, which focuses on crisis intervention and suicide prevention for LGBTQ youth; the Environmental Defense Fund, which is working to stabilize climate change; the Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights, which fights for immigrant rights and participatory democracy; and the National Organization for Women, a group that's wholly committed to equality for women, be it through education or the legal system.
Unlike the country, the Trump Candle meltdown won't take four years. Here's where you can get one.
