Parks Department Has the Perfect Response to the Naked Trump Statue in NYC
Politics| | By Margo Gothelf
The New York City Department of Parks & Recreation is just trying to make parks (and America) great again.
This past Wednesday several statues of Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump appeared in different cities all over the country depicting Trump in a different light. The statue that appeared in New York City in Union Square was removed only a couple of hours after it was put up, disappointing many, but the Parks Department statement afterward should cheer anybody up.
The department issued a short, clever, and very carefully worded statement that said: “NYC Parks stands firmly against any unpermitted erection in city parks, no matter how small.”

The statue is supposed to portray Mr. Trump, yet it is far from flattering. The piece of art shows Trump with a saggy stomach, an absent reproductive organ, and is not so well-endowed, as the Parks statement suggested.
Art group INDECLINE designed the statue, titled, “The Emperor Has No Balls.” The artwork was taken away after two hours in the park. Four other statues were spotted in San Francisco, Los Angeles, Cleveland, and Seattle as well.
