Even outside American borders, debates about the presidential election are getting people fired up. A deli in Windsor, Ontario, was selling a Donald Trump sandwich, featuring two slices of white bread between a pile of bologna and surrounded by a wall of tortilla chips with Russian dressing and a tiny pickle on the side.
But now the owner of Windsor Sandwich Shop has had to take the sandwich off the menu because he got so many threats from critics abroad, presumably from salty Trump supporters.
“A lot people thought it was hilarious,” business owner Lawrence Lavender told the National Post. “But I’m also getting a lot of negativity — mostly from people far away. Well, lots can be said about Trump supporters, I suppose.”
He expected blowback but didn’t think so many would be overtly offended by the sandwich, which was meant as a joke. However, Lavender also took the sandwich off the menu for more practical reasons: He wasn’t selling any Trump sandwiches. It seems that the joke — which was good for a laugh (or an incendiary comment) was not good for lunch, so Lavender said “you’re fired” to his Trump creation.
