Missouri woman cheesed off after seeing Donald Trump in her butter
Jan Castellano was preparing buttered toast in her home Saturday morning when things got really weird. The 63-year-old woman opened a new tub of Earth Balance Organic Spread only to find the face of a big cheese, property mogul Trump in it. This was not a pleasant surprise, she said.
“I’m just tired of seeing his face everywhere,” Castellano told The Daily Beast. “And I open up my butter and there he is. It was just staring right back at me.”
“He has such weird expressions. He’s so animated—whether he’s angry or whether he’s trying to make a point. All the cameras seem to capture him with his mouth kind of open and his eyes scrunched,” she added.
With his hard-line immigration plan that calls for the deportation of undocumented immigrants, Trump is leading the Republican primary polls by a wide margin. Nearly 32 percent of Republicans surveyed online said they backed Trump, up from 24 percent a week earlier, an opinion poll found earlier this week, Reuters reported.
“He’s everywhere and now he’s in my food products," said Castellano, who added that she hasn’t decided which candidate she’ll support in the 2016 election.
“Maybe I’ll buy the real butter,” she said. “I’ll start buying sticks so I don’t have to worry about it anymore.”
Castellano reportedly said she considered selling the barely used Trump toast, which tasted “mildly right-sided,” on eBay, hoping it could help pay off her daughter’s student loans. A 10-year-old toasted cheese sandwich, said to bear an image of the Virgin Mary, sold on eBay for $28,000 in 2004.

Images of Trump have not been restricted to food products alone, but have appeared in wildlife as well. When Trump, 69, announced his candidacy for president in June, many couldn't resist recalling the image of a rarely observed caterpillar, found in the Amazon region in South America and nicknamed the 'Donald Trump Caterpillar.' The hairpiece-looking clump of yellow fluff, which resembles the billionaire's hair, is actually said to be “one of the most venomous caterpillars in the United States.”
