Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump speaks during a campaign event Friday in South Carolina.
He might be trying to make America great again, but apparently the Donald’s not great for sandwich sales.
A special sandwich named after Donald Trump and filled with B.S. — bologna slices — failed to attract a single customer at one Vermont deli.
The blowhard Republican presidental candidate visited the Green Mountain State — Sen. Bernie Sanders’ home turf — for a rally in the liberal stronghold of Burlington.
As a whimsical preparation for the candidate’s appearance Thursday at the Flynn Center for the Performing Arts, one nearby deli began offering a sandwich called The Donald, available for the insane price of $20.16 — a number presumably picked to correspond to the election year.
According to the flyer Kountry Kart Deli put up to advertise its newest offering, the white bread sandwich is “filled with B.S.” and topped with lettuce, tomato, mustard and white American cheese.
“Don’t worry Donald there will be no spicy mustard here — we built a wall around it,” the sign says.
Workers at a Vermont deli near where Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump appeared say they didn’t sell any of the bologna sandwich specials concocted in his honor.
Although the farcical flyer originally appeared in the store’s window, the Secret Service asked “ever so politely” if the store could move the sign, deli owner Mike Williams told Boston.com.
Kountry Kart employee Emily Brownsword said that, even though people weren’t buying the simple sandwich, reactions have generally been good.
“People have been coming by and stopping to take pictures, and talking about it inside,” she said.
The deli also put out two tip jars, one with a photo of Sanders and the other with a photo of Trump.
Perhaps not surprisingly given Burlington’s political climate, the Sanders jar pulled in $120 while the Trump jar lagged behind with a paltry $6.70.
