    The statue of the former US president has caused a stir on social media, with Twitter users responding to Bloomberg reporter William Turton’s tweet calling it everything from “obscene” to “perfect.”

    Big plastic cartoonish statues = Cult. It's always meant that, eh? I mean, the Mackers cult is strong in the US!




    I remember showing up at the Church to sit with the statue of Ronald The Giver of Happy Meals and eat the prayerful meal and play with the Holy Happy Toy.
    Excellence is an art won by training and habituation. We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but rather we have those because we have acted rightly. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit.
    - -- Aristotle

    Believe nothing on the faith of traditions, even though they have been held in honor for many generations and in diverse places. Do not believe a thing because many people speak of it. Do not believe on the faith of the sages of the past. Do not believe what you yourself have imagined, persuading yourself that a God inspires you. Believe nothing on the sole authority of your masters and priests. After examination, believe what you yourself have tested and found to be reasonable, and conform your conduct thereto.
    - -- The Buddha

    Morons, everyone of them. Never doubted that.
    AMERICAN HISTORY ITSELF IS A TESTAMENT TO THE STRENGTH AND RESILIENCE OF AFRICAN PEOPLE. WE, ALONG WITH THE COURGE AND SACRIFICES OF CONSCIOUS WHITE AMERICANS, LIKE VIOLA LIUZZO, EVERETT DIRKSEN, AND MANY OTHERS, HAVE FOUGHT AND DIED TOGETHER FOR OUR FREEDOM, AND FOR OUR SURVIVAL.

    In America, rights are are not determined by what is just, fair, equitable, honest, nor by what Jesus would do. Rights are determined ONLY by what you can DEMAND.

    "A golden statue of Donald Trump, wearing shorts in the print of the US flag and carrying a wand, has caused a stir on Twitter since a video of it being wheeled into the CPAC (Conservative Political Action Conference) conference surfaced on the social networking site."

    This sounds like the work of Pranksters. (LOVE IT!)

    It is not proportional to reality.
    Trump's physique is egg-shaped, he has a massive bloated gut, double chin, and man boobs.

    At least the Obama statue is a realistically proportional.

    ROFLMAO!

    No doubt there's an orange Kool-Aid spigot underneath it for the truly faithful.

    True. They also inflated the size of the Kool Aid spigot. Probably the smallest they could find.

    More like Trump ordered it himself. I'm curious to see how he uses it. Kool-Aid dispenser?
