At Kosher Bakery, Trump Donuts Are Hot Sellers. Clinton Donuts, Not So Much.

The donut poll at Zishe’s Homemade Bakery in Monsey, New York, is favoring Donald Trump to win the first presidential debate tonight.

Zishe’s, a kosher sweet shop in the Orthodox-dominated village in Rockland County, cooked up batches of jelly donuts with Trump and Hillary Clinton’s names on them to mark the much-anticipated first presidential debate.

“I sold like ten of the Trump and maybe two of the Clinton,” said a woman who answered the phone at Zishe’s.

A picture of the debate display at Zishe’s is circulating on Orthodox WhatsApp groups.

“We just wanted to make a joke,” said the woman, who declined to give her name.

Now, however, she’s got a problem: leftovers.

“I have all the Clinton donuts,” she said.
