When most customers show up to Chicago's The Wiener's Circle late at night, politics aren't the first things on their minds. However, the owners of Lincoln Park's infamous hot dog stand are pushing the envelope with next week's Illinois Presidential Primary Election approaching. They're mocking GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump with a series of 3-inch hot dog specials referring to the size of The Donald's...hands?
They're offering a bevy of 3-inch hot dogs specials, all Chicago-style without ketchup. Wiener's Circle management have also put up mock Trump campaign signs reading "Trump Footlongs: Make Wieners Great Again," according to the RedEye. "The Trump Footlong" is actually just a 3-inch hot dog. "The Trump Package" comes with two of those mini dogs, while the "Super PAC" gives customers four mini dogs. Management told the RedEye they want to make Trump feel at home when he stops by Chicago on Friday.

For the Wiener's Circle, it's all about using the same "lauded" business acumen as Trump does when he makes deals. Per the stand's Facebook page: "We've got the best weekend deals. The other guys, they think they make deals. But we make DEALS. Really spectacular. You can read about it here. The press, they love us. Believe me."
The deals are available from Friday through Sunday. Gimmicks have been a thing for The Wiener's Circle of late. Beyond the reality TV show, just remember their costume from Halloween.
