Statues of a naked Donald Trump were rolled out in five American cities and many in the media jumped at the opportunity to use the highly inappropriate sculptures to drive home an anti-Trump message.
Never mind that these same media outlets would be screaming from the rooftops if, perish the though, a Naked Hillary statue were to emerge. Or worse, the messiah himself, Barack Obama.
A group identified as INDECLINE is behind the statues of the GOP presidential nominee and has placed them in New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle, and Cleveland, according to The Hill.
The Naked Trump statue in New York’s Union Square Park was summarily ripped down, Sky News reported:

The statues are the end result of a project titled “The Emperor Has No Balls” and depicts a totally naked Trump, complete with a huge gut and tiny genitalia.
Kristin Tate, a contributor for The Hill, shared the liberal media response from a few of the standard bearers:
Esquire characterized the display in Union Square as “a brief, beautiful moment in New York City history.”
The New York Daily News headlined: “The Trumperer has no clothes.” “The Huffington Post, not to be outdone in the upper realms of smuggery, observed, “Just when you thought you couldn’t possibly take one more hateful slur, tuft of yellow hair, idiotic threat, or troll-sized orange finger … this happens.” Hilarious!
While Clinton’s media allies would surely greet a Naked Hillary statue with cries of misogyny, the double standard in play only adds credence to Trump’s recent take on the media.
“I’m not running against Crooked Hillary, I’m running against the crooked media,” Trump said last week at a rally in Connecticut.
