NYC Street Performer Puts on Trump Costume, Invites Public to Assault Him for Money (Video)

A punch in the gut for $5?

In lower Manhattan's Union Square this Tuesday, a street performer dressed in a business suit and a Donald Trump mask held a cardboard sign reading "Beat Up Trump" with prices listed beneath. A photo with the candidate was priced at $2, while a punch in the gut was $5. To trample Trump, the performer asked for $10, while throttling Trump was a mere $7. The most expensive act listed was "piss on Trump," for $300.

The New York primary is Tuesday, April 19, which Trump is slated to win by a landslide.

Maybe Trump will be good for the economy after all.
