There’s a lot of things that’ve gotten the dumpster treatment this year. Our hopes and dreams, sanity, and social lives to name a few; however, famed wax museum Madame Tussauds gives the dumpster treatment to something that actually deserves to be lingering in the trash – the pumpkin POTUS himself, Trump.
Madame Tussauds in Berlin made some tweaks to their Donald Trump display in honor of the upcoming U.S. election, placing it in a dumpster full of trash with a MAGA hat and tweet bubbles featuring common Trump-isms such as “Fake News!” and “You are fired!” The dumpster features a sticker stating “DUMP TRUMP- Make America Great Again,” and the display is placed in front of a Trump tower background.
I wonder if the trash in the bin that surrounds him is meant to represent his supporters or what he’s contributed to modern democracy in America?
Orkide Yalcindag, a marketing manager for the Berlin museum, told Reuters that “today’s activity is rather of a symbolic character ahead of the elections in the United States… We here at Madame Tussauds Berlin removed Donald Trump’s waxwork as a preparatory measure.”
Oy, if only the White House could do the same!
Proving that Trump really is one of a kind, other wax statues of former presidents such as Obama haven’t received the same treatment. Knowing Trump, this could go either way. His new home in the trash heap might be enough to send him into yet another Twitter meltdown, OR he might just declare that the display is Tremendous! What other President has gotten such special treatment! I make them crazy in a yuge way! You say it’s symbolism but clearly it’s fake news! Ivanka, come give Daddy a massage!
As the election looms near, this is another example of how Trump definitely seems to push buttons, even across the pond. Much like the ‘Rona itself, Trump seems to have the ability to seed his fuckery across the world as we all watch on in horror and disgust. One can only hope that the museum is run by powerful sorcerers and psychics, and that this very fitting trash effigy is a sign of things yet to come.
