Naked Donald Trump statues pop up in 5 cities, but its NYC that removes it with a blistering zinger

Five cites awoke Thursday to see Donald Trump naked, and one just couldn’t help but take a shot at him for it.

Statues of a naked Trump appeared in the five cities — New York, Seattle, San Francisco, Cleveland and Los Angeles — as part of a protest by an anarchist street art group known as INDECLINE, the Washington Post reported.

The project, which was done by a Las Vegas sculptor who goes by the name “Ginger,” was dubbed “The Emperor Has No Balls,” and was partially inspired by the Hans Christian Andersen story “The Emperor’s New Clothes,” according to a statement from the group.

The statues are, you guessed it, missing one key feature of the male anatomy, while another is portrayed as extremely small.

“Like it or not, Trump is a larger-than-life figure in world culture at the moment,” the spokesman told the Post. “Looking back in history, that’s how those figures were memorialized and idolized in their time — with statues.”

Unlike those figures these statues were definitely not meant to be flattering.

“Starting on the project and looking at his face day in and day out when I’d come home, I began to build up some resentment,” Ginger said. “The straw that broke the camel’s back was when he made fun of the disabled reporter from the New York Times.”

“I have family members that are physically and mentally handicapped and who need different types of care,” he told the Post. “When I saw what he did, I was in such a rage.”

That rage, he said, is one of the reasons he won’t mind seeing the statues destroyed by police or dismantled by angry Trump supporters like a silicone piñata.

He said the group had bets among themselves about how long it would take for the statues to be removed, either by angry mobs or the respective city governments.

One city that did remove the statue was New York City. And it did so with this petty statement.

“NYC Parks stands firmly against any unpermitted erection in city parks, no matter how small.”

Classy.

The appearance of the statues was well documented on social media.
