An activist, anarchist collective that goes by the name of Indecline, took credit on Thursday for not-so-complimentary statutes of a naked Donald Trump in six American cities, including Cincinnati, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Cleveland and Seattle. #Naked Trump also appeared in New York's Union Square for the project called “The Emperor Has No Balls.” The statute depicts Trump with normal-sized hands but not so normal-sized genitals, reported Raw Story.
Parks & Rec officials took sweet time taking away the 'Naked Trump'
New York City Department of Parks & Recreation had a 'small' problem in Union Square, reports Raw Story, but took their "sweet time removing the statue — giving everyone a chance to take a selfie with the naked Trump replica — before hauling it away."
A New York City Parks & Rec spokesperson, Sam Biederman, delivered what was a tongue-in-cheek reason for removing the statue, at the same time pointedly jabbing at Naked Trump. “NYC Parks stands firmly against any unpermitted erection in city parks, no matter how small,” Biederman stated.
Lumpy, overweight statute a takeoff of 'The Emperor's New Clothes'
Mashable reports that the lumpy, overweight caricature statute of #Donald Trump, was a takeoff inspired by the Hans Christian Andersen's classic Danish fairy tale, "The Emperor's New Clothes." The 'short tale' penned by Anderson that may be the perfect depiction of Trump, who sees himself as fully clothed, but the population sees the truth, that he has no new clothes, and in fact, has no clothes.

It takes a child to tell the Emperor the truth
In the short Hans Christian Anderson tale, two weavers sell the conceited emperor a new set of clothes. The weavers tell him that his new set of clothes are invisible. All of his subjects, however, are afraid to tell him he has no clothes if it were not for a child who screams out the truth, "But he isn't wearing anything at all!"
INDECLINE posted the following video on YouTube, which attracted a swarm of people in all six cities in which the statute, signed simply Ginger, was on full display. Or is it small display.
New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio was asked about the "Naked Trump" at a news conference on Thursday. "That is a frightening thought," de Blasio told reporters. "When he's wearing clothes I don't like him."
Someone does need to break the news to Donald Trump he has no clothes. Or is it Naked Trump. #Election 2016
