[pdx] In Passing: Donald Trump's BS available in Pioneer Square

The BS here refers to baloney sandwiches. I don't know what you were thinking, reader.

Oh, OK. I know what you were thinking. But what DJT pushes is baloney as much as anything else, and will serve for the terms of this missive.

Via KGW, our legendary local advertising house, Wieden + Kennedy, has brought a new food cart to the supersaturated Portland street-food scene, and it's only here for a limited time, in Pioneer Courthouse Square. It was there today and will be there tomorrow (Saturday) from 11AM-2PM. The trailer, made up in the Trumpian color scheme of Yuge Black and Only-The-Best Gold, is dubbed DONALD TRUMP'S BS and offers an array of 'hero' sandwiches, such as the Working-Class Hero and the Tell-it-like-it-is Hero, sumptuously clad in a gold wrapper and packaged in a distinctively decorated cardboard sleeve. Classy.

However, when you unwrap it, no matter what sandwich you order … it's just baloney on the whitest bread you can find.

The same old BS.

Here's the video W+K posted to Instagram via YouTube. You'll get the idea.

Follow this link to the OLive story which has better pictures of the trailer and the personnel, as well as a glimpse of the menu and the sumptuous packaging. It's all silver lining, my friends.
