Jeanette Paras, who spent 10 hours painting the “Trumpkin”, says she chose the polarizing figure because of all the attention he’s been getting as a Republican presidential candidate.
A sign on Paras’ front lawn advertises the “Trumpkin” as “Make pumpkins great again!” – a play on Trump’s slogan “Make America Great Again.”
She’s created other pumpkin caricatures of Miley Cyrus (complete with a wrecking ball), Lady Gaga, Steve Jobs and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.MORE NEWS: 8 Stained Glass Windows Of St. Peter Armenian Apostolic Church In Lake Balboa Found Shattered By Masked Vandal
