A San Diego student creates dog chew toy denoting Donald Trump

John Morse, a student at California Western School of Law, has created his own chew toy for dogs called Chomp-A-Chump. The chew toy store sells its products for $9.99 and his most recent toys look an awful lot like presidential candidate, Donald Trump. While Morse started the company back in 2015, the idea of a special Trump-like toy came to him when his dog started barking at Donald Trump on TV during a debate.

“They’re pet toys with a purpose,” Morse said. “It’s not to be taken seriously. It’s a light, funny and farcical way to look at this political season.”

Would you, the voters, buy your dog a Donald Trump toy to chew on? Watch a video about the not-so-Trump-friendly toys here.
