Why OC Weekly's Cover This Week Features a Donkey Drumpf-ing Trump

Yes, that is a Democratic ass on top of Donald Trump on the cover of this week's dead-tree Weekly. And it’s only fitting: For more than a year, the presumptive GOP presidential nominee has peddled all sorts of nasty myths against Mexicans, from painting undocumented immigrants as rapists and Typhoid Marias to insisting a massive wall on the U.S.-Mexico border will make America great again. His campaign has grown as grotesque as a donkey show, those Tijuana spectacles that exist only in the fevered minds of gabachos , and it made a stop in Costa Mesa last week, with Trump the featured star and the Weekly documenting every scream, punch and lie. So it’s also only fitting legendary cartoonista Lalo Alcaraz capture the moment, you know? Besides, Democrats violating Trump from behind is what he can expect when he faces Hillary Clinton come November. Enjoy our package, and don't forget to register to vote!
BTW, the idea for this cover came from our former sister paper the Riverfront Times, who infamously had the Democratic donkey humping former Missouri congressman Todd "Legitimate Rape" Akins on its cover in 2012—good stuff!
