Ryanair takes aim at US presidential candidates just days before election

Ryanair has poked fun at the two leading US presidential candidates in its latest tongue-and-cheek escapade – just days before Election Day.
Boasting about their €9.99 deals, the low-cost airline has photoshopped Hillary Clinton browsing Ryanair’s website with the caption: “Even she wouldn’t delete our email offers!”
Another dig at the presidential hopeful has her gazing into a computer screen, accompanied by the words “The only thing lower than our fares? Hillary’s chances in Albama!”
Donald Trump didn’t get off lightly either.
A picture resembling his infamous blonde hair blowing to one side is featured below the caption: “There’s no need Toupee more: Fly from €9.99”.
Although Ryanair doesn’t offer flights to the US, Michael O’Leary has expressed interest in eventually launching a transatlantic service, but will do so using a subsidiary or a completely separate business in which it may have a majority stake.
Earlier this year, the airline said it was already talking to manufacturers about buying planes to serve new routes between European airports and US.
