(Wrestling with temptation to find naked Trump statue funny right next to how livid I would be if they made one of Hillary…)

As Twitchy told you, somewhat grotesque statues of a naked Donald Trump have popped up at a few locations around the country. Guess they’re making a statement or something. And that’s fine and all, but it’s hard not to wonder if there might be a double standard at play.
See, a lot of people are laughing about the Trump statues. And to be fair, that’s sort of inevitable: Trump’s made himself an easy target for ridicule.
But what if the statue were of someone else? Someone like Hillary Clinton? Would all those people still be laughing?

That statue of naked Trump is not art… It's fucking weird and a complete shame.. What would happen if naked Hillary was on display? ??

I am repelled by Trump but I do not think the naked statue in Union Square is OK. If it were of Hillary, it would not be OK.

Re: Trump statue in Union Square… Wonder what the liberals would say if some were done of Hillary? Just as a protest, of course.

We’re guessing many liberals wouldn’t be nearly as entertained as they are by the Trump statues — and the media would be flipping their lids.
Trust me I think Trump sucks just as much as you do but could you imagine the outcry if a naked Hillary statue was anonymously placed in NYC

Funny! But what if the other side did this too Hillary? Me thinks people wouldn't think it's funny. https://t.co/JXtfWMjVtv

Oh the outrage there would be if a naked Hillary statue was constructed. But this one is Trump, so it's definitely okay to join on the fun

Imagine the outrage if protestors put together a statue of a naked Hillary Clinton. SJWs would be on suicide watch. https://t.co/vhnYllpgdq
