New Yorkers who don’t mind having an image permanently seared into their minds flocked to Union Square yesterday to gawk at a life-size, mostly anatomically correct statue of Donald Trump superglued to the pavement.
The statue, which was the work of the collective INDECLINE, also popped up in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle and… Cleveland.
Even though Naked Donald Trump left us far too soon, his memory lives on in the incredibly on-point response of the NYC Parks Department to the clandestine art installation. After the artwork's removal, officials issued the following statement:
"NYC Parks stands firmly against any unpermitted erection in city parks, no matter how small."
Who knew that the parks department and the New York Post had so much in common?
Perhaps Naked Donald Trump will return some day, when the wind blows from the west and we think we need him the least, to inspire more sassy statements from city officials. Until then, we’ll just have to deal with the far less entertaining clothed version.
