Vandal Torches Anti-Trump Statue in Slovenia

An arsonist burned an unflattering wooden effigy of President Trump to the ground earlier today. 

The monument, in Melania’s home country of Slovenia, depicted Trump with pointed teeth and a menacing expression. 

Per ABC News:
 

When triggered, a mechanism inside the statue opened a red-painted mouth and shark-like teeth used to appear.

“Like all populists, the statue has two faces,” its creator, Tomaz Schlegl, said when he unveiled the statue last August. “One is humane and nice, the other is that of a vampire.”

Although the construction quickly became a tourist attraction, some local villagers were unhappy with its appearance, pledging to torch it by Halloween, Oct. 31. It had to be moved to another village in the area.

Milan Balazic, the mayor of Moravce where the statue ended up, said that unknown arsonists burned it.

Balazic lamented the statute’s destruction, saying the act “is [sic] symbol of intolerance toward artistic projects in our society.”
