Thursday morning, naked statues of Donald Trump appeared in LA, San Francisco, Cleveland, New York and Seattle. The statue, titled “The Emperor Has No Balls” was created by acclaimed haunted house sculptor, Ginger, and commissioned by an artistic collective known as INDECLINE. The statues weigh only 80 pounds and were made with the expectation that they would be destroyed, which has been the fate of several of the statues already.

Luckily, the cohabiting Wacko store and La Luz de Jesus art gallery moved the Donald to the safety of their entryway, saving it from any city workers or angry Trump fans. Billy Shire of La Luz de Jesus told us about the sculpture, “You know, it was out there in the morning. They dropped them off in five cities. For some reason they were dropped in front of Wacko. You know. Where is the center of Los Angeles? We’re going to put it in the gallery. It’ll be in the gallery for a week or two, then we’ll auction it off and give the money to an immigrant…charity.”

A video showing the creation of the statues was posted to YouTube by INDECLINE:
