The eyes of American commuters were scarred for life on Thursday as five naked statues of Donald Trump appeared in the streets of New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle and Cleveland.
According to the Washington Post, a group of anarchist artists called INDECLINE claimed responsibility for the statues which displayed Donald in a less than flattering light.
“[L]ike it or not, Trump is a larger-than-life figure in world culture at the moment. INDECLINE told the Post. “Looking back in history, that’s how those figures were memorialized and idolized in their time — with statues.”
But while their historical rendering of Trump might be true to history, It’s doubtful that the Republican candidate for president would be pleased with the proportion of certain parts of the statue, though it should be noted that the hands appeared to be of normal size.
The series titled, “The Emperor Has No Balls”, is a play on Hans Christian Andersen’s famous story, The Emperor’s New Clothes and a far greater play against Donald Trump who felt it necessary to assure the audience of the Fox News Republican Presidential Debate in Detroit that there was definitely nothing wrong with the size of his junk.
Despite the statues total exposure, passersby didn’t appear to be afraid and even stopped to get a closer look and snap pictures and videos of the graphic big-bellied likeness of Trump which took over twitter throughout the day.
Later in the afternoon New York’s Department of Parks and Recreation removed their city’s version of the statue hacking at its base with shovels and leaving Trump’s bare feet behind as they loaded his naked body into the back of a pickup.
The city issued a statement about the statue’s removal to AFP saying, “NYC Parks stands firmly against any unpermitted erection in city parks, no matter how small”.
