Most of this post will be under the fold. It’s best to be aware that once something is seen, it’s seen. If you don’t want to see naked, don’t look. If you don’t want to see Trump, don’t look. If you don’t want to see Naked Trump, seriously, don’t look. Now that’s out of the way:
According to the Washington Post, anarchist artist collective INDECLINE has placed naked statues of Trump around the country Thursday morning. They were unveiled in New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Cleveland and Seattle. INDECLINE posted videos of itself making the statues on YouTube.
“I don’t expect these things to last more than 30 or 45 minutes,” an anonymous spokesman for INDECLINE told the Post. “But I would love to watch some irate 65-year-old Trump supporter try to take thing down with his bare hands.”
There are many more tweeted photos of the ball-less emperor here, and they were discovered in different places. In Westhampton, the statue was destroyed:
Representatives from parks department removed the statue, well, all except for the feet, just after 1 p.m. on Thursday. One bystander quickly grabbed part of the left foot before the parks department representatives could smash the remains.
Patch reached out to the Trump campaign, but had not heard back.
The crowd booed the parks department representatives, and one responded, “Just let me do my job description, guys.”
The parks department appears to have gotten the last laugh on the issue though, as its statement on the issue indicates.
NYC parks department on naked Trump statue: "NYC Parks stands firmly against any unpermitted erection in city parks, no matter how small.”
