‘Rent Too Damn High’ NY candidate Jimmy McMillan inspires talking doll

The New York gubernatorial candidate from the “The Rent Is Too Damn High Party” now has a talking plastic “hero” doll that repeats his catch phrase.

A Connecticut company that makes action figures is selling one of New York governor wannabe Jimmy McMillan.

Priced at $49.99, the McMillan doll announces, “The rent is Too. Damn. High.”

Those words made him a one-theme political sensation when he spoke them during a debate, wearing black gloves and mutton chops.

Emil Vitale owns the online company Herobuilders.com. He launched his latest product on Monday and by Wednesday sold a few hundred of the 12-inch figures.

Vitale says he’s seen the candidate only on TV.

He also makes a plastic Sarah Palin, Barack and Michelle Obama and other talk-of-the-town figures.

When asked about the importance of Australia's mineral industry, the president praised the country for doing so much to extract resources in what he described in an environmentally friendly way.

"Coal, as an example, you're the leader of safety in coal digging and we've actually studied it," the president said. "We're doing a lot of coal. You have very little -- you have almost no -- used to have a thing, black lung disease, and in Australia you almost don't have it anymore, you've got all of the dust down."

The View explodes in confusion after Meghan McCain makes Trump’s Ukraine debacle all about herself

"This is a blown-up story and we have no facts, there's no gray area," Huntsman said. "It's black and white, and that would give Trump all the more ammunition if this isn't even true to say, this is what the media does."
