Mexican politicians on Tuesday night took turns smashing a piñata of President-elect Donald TrumpDonald John TrumpJustice Department preparing for Mueller report as soon as next week: reports Smollett lawyers declare 'Empire' star innocent Pelosi asks members to support resolution against emergency declaration MORE  at a Christmas party.


Legislators from the Party of Democratic Revolution, Mexico’s leftist party, bashed a Trump lookalike to massive cheers at the party in Mexico City, Business Insider reported.

Trump began his presidential campaign by referring to Mexicans as "rapists," and made his pledge to build a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border central to his campaign.

Mexican Sen. Miguel Barbosa, the party leader, told Business Insider the event was done in good humor to show their rejection of Trump.

“We must not take it as a provocation but as it was, a Christmas prefiesta that showed the rejection and a way of thinking of many Mexicans,” he said.

In September, former Mexican President Vicente Fox smashed a Trump piñata on television as a guest on a Los Angeles-based Spanish-language talk show. When opened, the pinata was empty.

"Empty, totally empty,” Fox said at the time. "He doesn't have a brain.”
