Madonna Bought A Donald Trump Pinata

by Kaitlin Reilly

Few celebrities are choosing to stay silent in the weeks leading up to the Presidential election, with plenty of stars tweeting their support for one of the candidates or, if you're Chrissy Teigen, getting into a social media war with Donald Trump. Words are powerful, no matter what side of the election you fall on, and with an election so polarizing hardly anyone is caught between candidates. Of course, for some stars, sharing who they plan on voting for with their words isn't enough. Some, like Madonna, have to take a very specific course of action in order to share their political beliefs — like, say, filling up the likeness of their least favorite candidate with candy and swinging a bat at it. As Buzzfeed reported, Madonna bought a Trump piñata for her son's birthday, and if you had any questions about her reaction to "Make America great again," I think the topic can be officially put to rest.

The "Bitch, I'm Madonna" singer wasn't just celebrating the upcoming election with a few smacks of Trump's likeness: she was also celebrating her son David Banda Mwale Ciccone Ritchie's birthday. Though it's unclear whether Ritchie asked for the Trump piñata himself, or whether it was a surprise gift from his mom, he and his party guests are having a glorious time trying to take the paper creation down. No word yet on what candy was inside that piñata, but personally, my fingers are crossed that it was filled to the top with Skittles.

Considering just how heated things have gotten in this election, it makes total sense for Trump piñatas to arrive on the scene — especially when it comes to finding it in Madonna's backyard. Madonna is a notorious Trump hater, and recently slammed Trump for supporting his sons' big game hunting, calling it yet one more reason to vote Hillary Clinton for President. Apparently, the dislike is mutual and long-lasting: Trump reportedly told ABC's now-defunct news show Nitecap that Madonna would be the "least attractive woman" in a room in 1992.

Will a Madonna piñata be next on the agenda for Trump? We may have to wait until after Monday's debate to find out.
