Naked Trump statues pop up in U.S. cities

Naked, life-size statues of GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump debuted at famous public spaces in several U.S. cities this morning, including: New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Seattle, and Cleveland.


The artist behind the political art project, titled “The Emperor Has No Balls,” is Las Vegas-based sculptor Ginger, who told the Washington Post he became enraged after Trump mocked a disabled New York Times reporter months ago.

Ginger, who says he has considerable experience designing and creating monsters for horror flicks and haunted houses, also told the Post he spent 25 hours a week over the course of five months working on the anti-Trump protest pieces.
