ITEM #: GVDS0012d Patriotic Democratic Donkey Doll by Glitterville
Material: Stuffed Fabric
The Democratic party's logo or symbol is most associated with a donkey. The origin of this association can be traced back to the 1828 election when Andrew Jackson was running for president of the United States and his opponents called him a "jackass." Jackson found this amusing instead of insulting and started using it on his campaign posters. Jackson went on to defeat John Quincy Adams, making him the 1st democratic president! This stuffed donkey doll covered in the stars and stripes of the United States flag would make a great display piece for all of the Patriotic holidays!
