Trump won't last forever, and neither will this candle with his face on it

Multicultural agency o1 casts a metaphorical message in wax

World affairs got you down? Watch your troubles melt away with this eerily detailed candle, a wax visage of the president of the United States.

Molded in Russian-pee-tape-yellow (No collusion!), the 8-inch statuette (It's way bigger than that, believe me!) is a project from multicultural shop o1 agency (Some real bad dudes!).

It's an interesting likeness, though the face appears thinner and taller than the real thing. A beak-like nose protrudes above thin lips, casting a shadow upon the suggestion of a chin and jowls that plough into the shirt collar. There's more hair than there should be. Across the bust is emblazoned the phrase "It's just a matter of time," a mantra for the target audience for this kitschy knick-knack.

The agency is selling the limited edition item for $39.95 at TheTrumpCandle.com, part of its O-uniques line of products meant to spark conversation and debate about important issues. In addition, 30 percent of the profits are being donated to organizations that fight for causes Trump has personally attacked: LGBT advocacy group The Trevor Project, the Environmental Defense Fund, the Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights and the National Organization for Women.
