Massive Donald 'Trumpkin' wants to make pumpkins great again

Artist Jeanette Paras paints a 374-pound pumpkin to look like presidential candidate and reality-television personality Donald Trump. She's hired!

Every year, Jeanette Paras transforms a pumpkin into a work of art featuring someone who's prominent in the media. And oh my gourd! This year's creation is amazing.

On Monday, the Ohio artist unveiled a massive 374-pound (170-kilogram) pumpkin that she spent about 10 hours meticulously painting to look like Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump. She calls it the "Trumpkin."

As you can see from the images on the Paras Pumpkins Facebook page, the massive pumpkin looks almost uncannily like The Donald, especially with the instantly recognizable Trump hair on top of the Trumpkin's head.

The Trumpkin might be president of the United States someday.

Paras Pumpkins

To top things off, Paras placed a campaign sign on her lawn that reads "Trumpkin - Make Pumpkins Great Again," a play on the Trump campaign's official "Make America Great Again" slogan.

Paras has been making pumpkins resembling popular figures since 1988, according to CNN. Her previous pumpkins have featured everyone from musicians Miley Cyrus and Lady Gaga to political figures such as Bill Clinton, Barack Obama and North Korean supreme leader Kim Jong-un.

Her Donald Trump Trumpkin is pretty dang impressive, and we can't wait to see who she features on a pumpkin next year. In the meantime, we hope Trumpkin won't be sharing the stage at the next presidential debate. That could get messy.
