Popular Santa Ana Latin American restaurant Lola Gaspar plans to show Donald Trump what's what with a piñata-bashing party on July 25, featuring the Republican candidate's likeness made into a beatable pulp. The otherwise amiable eatery already has one Trump piñata hanging from their expanded patio, but writes in to the OC Weekly to announce the upcoming arrival of four more. Once the five-pack arrives, there are big plans to smash them to pieces.

Of course, none of this would be possible without Mr. Comb-over himself, whose fiery anti-immigration comments (well, really anti-Mexican specifically) have ignited a backlash within the Mexican-American communities and beyond.

As such, Trump piñatas have been selling like hotcakes recently, giving people the perfect opportunity to vent their frustrations. The Lola Gaspar party is another; not only can customers hopefully take a full swing at a likeness of the hairpiece man, they'll also be able to grub on full plates of tri-tip, al pastor tacos, margaritas and more on July 25, from noon to 3 p.m. No need to get tickets or make reservations — just join the mob and dive right in.

Here's an example of a Donald Trump piñata from a producer in Mexico:
