This App Helps You Drown Out President Trump During Purim

You can drown out more than just Haman this Purim.

“The Donald Noisemaker,” a free app available in the iTunes store, allows users to shake away their distaste for President Trump during the holiday. Wave your phone up and down and you’ll get sound bytes of Trump saying the words “wrong,” “oy-ya-ye,” and “boo” over and over again. Oh yeah, and as an added bonus, a hamantashen will appear over his mouth as it goes.

There’s also an option for a regular grogger noise if that’s more up your alley.

“Make a statement while you make a racket,” Rachel Brodie, co-founder of “The Donald Noisemaker,” wrote as an introduction to the app. “…And keep shaking until you can’t tell the difference between Mordechai and Melania.”

Brodie added that the noisemaker isn’t just for Purim, and can be whipped out anytime the user is feeling frustrated over the current administration.

“Express your feelings while you’re listening to the latest news or mulling over the state of the union,” she wrote.

Apologies in advance to the neighbors of all anti-Trumpers.
