Presidential candidate Donald Trump made some unscheduled campaign stops across America this morning, but this time he surprised—if that’s even possible at this point—supporters by appearing fully nude in all his Trump-ian glory. In actuality, the guerrilla Trump dopplegangers were the creation of a street art collective known as Indecline which commissioned a Las Vegas-based monster FX sculptor to create the lifelike statues in The Donald’s image for simultaneous placement around the country. Titled The Emperor Has No Balls (after Hans Christian Andersen’s “The Emperor’s New Clothes”), the sculptures made their debut in NYC, LA, Seattle, San Francisco, and Cleveland on Thursday AM, drawing crowds of zealous observers and selfie-mongers. When questioned about his participation in the project, the sculptor, known only as Ginger, told the Washington Post, “When the guys approached me, it was all because of my monster-making abilities. Trump is just yet another monster, so it was absolutely in my wheelhouse to be able to create these monstrosities.”

Update: The statue in Union Square was ultimately removed by the NYC Parks Dept, who issued this official statement:“NYC Parks stands firmly against any unpermitted erection in city parks, no matter how small.”
