There was a nude statue of Trump in Union Square today. gulp

The NYC Parks department took it down and released this statement:
Quote:
NYC Parks stands firmly against any unpermitted erection in city parks, no matter how small

I'm not a fan of Trump, but I dunno.

This project is kinda gross. I get the "lol no balls" thing, but it's a little too close to body shaming or something. It bugs me.

I thought it was funny, but then realized I would have a different view if it were Hillary, so I didn't post the pic, only the sick burn by the NYC Parks people.

I am proud to have opposed those who describe all who oppose them as "Tender Flowers" and "Special Snowflakes".

I get that, but I have a lot of respect for the writing of that announcement.

It's pathetic, and inappropriate in a public park.

I think that's kind of the point.

My favorite part of this is something not many folks are talking about: they commissioned these sculptures (there are a bunch of them, all over the country) FOUR MONTHS AGO. Four months ago. Anyone remember watching this race back in May and thinking, "boy, this is just about as ridiculous as things can get, eh?"

Four months ago.

Makes your head spin.

(Oh, and the title, "The Emperor Has No Balls" is, perhaps obviously, a reference to the classic children's tale, "The Emperor Has No Clothes." It's all kind of perfect -- except having to see Donald Trump without his clothes on. That I could have lived without.)
