As of yesterday, naked statues of Donald Trump appeared in five different states in the U.S and we’re not sure how we feel about it…

Imagine waking up to this statue gracefully standing on the street:
Trump’s naked body popped up in Cincinnati, New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Cleveland and Seattle early Thursday morning. According to Mashable, members of the anarchist collective Indecline came forward and claimed responsibility for the art work.
The project is apparently called “The Emperor has no Balls” – inspired by the Hans Christian Andersen tale, “The Emperor’s New Clothes”.
If you can’t remember, the story goes something like this: Two weavers sell an emperor a new set of robes, claiming that it will be invisible to servants unfit for their positions. Nobody tells the emperor that he is in fact naked, until a child decides to tell the truth.
The Washington Post reported that the artist who designed the statues goes by the name of Ginger and seemed to suggest that Trump was very much an emperor without his clothes – a man obsessed with his own image and blind to his own faults.
The statues are enormous, a bit unflattering and doesn’t feature testicles.
Apparently, Ginger has a history of designing monsters for haunted houses and told the Washington Post that “Trump is just yet another monster, so it was absolutely in my wheelhouse to be able to create these monstrosities”.
