In August, a pudgy and vein covered statue of Trump was unveiled in Union Square. Conceptualized by Las Vegas-based artist “Ginger,” the life-size piece was one of several erected by members of the anarchist collective INDECLINE across public spaces in San Francisco, Los Angeles, Cleveland, and Seattle. The project – dubbed The Emperor Has No Balls” – was inspired by Hans Christian Anderson’s story “The Emperor’s New Clothes.” It depicts Trump in a vulnerable and unsettling way: without balls, and has subliminal jokes carved into his skin. New York City Department of Parks issued an equally witty statement in response:

“NYC Parks stands firmly against any unpermitted erection in city parks no matter how small.”
