Don Lessem, is a renowned dinosaur expert and author. (No, really, he is.) And he’s made a giant, robotic, farting Trump statue and says he was inspired to create it during a visit to a factory in Sichuan, China, that makes his dinosaur robots.
“I saw all sorts of abominable sculptures, from tiny dragons to leprechauns. I realized they can make anything robotic, no matter how frightening. For $25,000 of my money, I decided this was a monument worth making. Now I am hoping others want to share my pain.”
The sculpture is headed from China to London in time for Trump’s June arrival. Lessum says it’s being shipped
“on a freighter whose name I won’t disclose for fear Trump will bomb it.”
“your home for all things anti-Trump.”
Now he’s hoping to make a bigger anti-Trump splash in the news pool,
“My goal is to create this year’s attention-getting and bile-producing sequel to the Trump baby balloon, and one that could be more easily deployed at rallies all over the world. I think we need a focus to our rage, and as many and large reminders as possible of what a disgusting disgrace this oaf is to humanity.
When not on the links, Trump apparently spends most of his time on the can tweeting, so I figured to pay full tribute to him he’d have to be positioned on a golden toilet. For his own safety, we thought to put his overlong tie into the toilet itself. He’s tweeting of course, and his mouth moves to utter deathless quotes in his own voice …. His Make America Great Again cap is subtitled ‘Impeach Me’ — as if we needed a reminder.
The fart noises, however, are not his own — recordings of his flatulence are apparently unavailable.”
Lessem has contacted the organizers of last year’s London protest and the makers of the Baby Trump balloon to tell them the statue is on its way to England.
“By the way, it being China where it was made, the factory owner asked me,
‘Can your really do this without going to prison?’
‘Answer cloudy, ask again later,’ I told him.”
If you are inspired, Lessem has a GoFundMe page to help him defray the costs. After seeing it in action, I might just contribute myself, so I’m actually doing something concrete to annoy the world’s most annoying and hated person.
