Artistic expression is a powerful way to share one’s emotions, ideas, impressions, dreams.
Every individual has their own means of creating. Everyone has their own artistic outlet.
Of course, the idea of art is itself completely individual. Some say that art is in the eye of the beholder. You may be moved by Picasso while your spouse adores the works of DaVinci.
Every once in a while, though, an act of artistic expression is so very powerful that it makes nearly every observer want to start scrubbing their eyeballs.
The New York Daily News reports on one such exhibit in the city’s Washington Square. The artist is a Hollywood monster creator. His art is…
Well. His art is out there.
One artistic citizen out there wanted to show that the Emperor has no clothes. So they created a statue of Republican presidential candidate Trump. With no clothes. And they stood it in the middle of one of New York’s most famous tourist attractions.
The art was somewhat realistic. There was the pout, the orange hair, the saggy jowly face.

The artistic representation is also somewhat metaphorical, too. The statue sports a big, fat belly. This may represent the bloated lifestyle of the man who owns a place called “Mar-A-Lago.” Or it may represent his over inflated ego. It’s hard to tell.
Then there is the representation of the more private parts of the candidate. Perhaps these parts were more figurative?

Thank the good Lord, I have no idea.
From what I have read, the statue shows the big orange bully with a teeny weeny peeny and no balls in sight.
Makes me think of how Trump crumbled in the face of Megyn Kelly’s tough questions.
The naked Trump statues have been appearing in many American cities, and have drawn similar reactions from all over.
People in New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Seattle and Cleveland took pictures of the nudie Trump. They took selfies. They held their noses, turned their thumbs down, and they laughed. They laughed a lot.
After a couple of hours of public humiliation, the Trump statue in New York was removed. The city explained its decision with a brilliant Tweet.

Artistic and political expression rolled into one big, flabby, orange image. You really have to love it.
Watch. Laugh. Then wash your eyeballs.
