This candymaker is selling ‘Trump Sucks’ lollipops to support Planned Parenthood

Wanna suck on a tiny orange replica of Trump’s face?

A candy company based in the U.K. is selling “Trump Sucks” lollipops in protest of President Donald Trump’s move to enact the global gag rule, which restricts funding and access to contraception worldwide.

If you’re cool with shoving a tiny candy Trump face anywhere near your own human face, then this is probably a very clever gift idea. However, if you are easily traumatized by the thought of enjoying a piece of candy that’s been sculpted in the image of our current president, it is very easy to avoid this purchase and just donate to Planned Parenthood on your own.

Smith & Sinclair is selling the pops in butterscotch and sea salt or strawberry and mint varieties, presumably to make the pops go down much easier than Trump’s restrictive anti-abortion policy.

“Take a moment with Trump that’s easier to stomach than any other,” the shop’s site reads. “Here’s your chance to have a bite, to match his bark!”

All proceeds from the pops go toward the International Planned Parenthood Federation, which provides women’s health resources, programs, and global funding. Planned Parenthood took another hit yesterday when the U.S. Senate voted to allow states to block federal funding for family planning clinics.
