An artist in Melania’s home country of Slovenia has built a 26’ tall statue of der Groppenfuhrer so he can burn it on Halloween, if a local farmer doesn’t bulldoze it with his tractor first…

Huffington Post

“A new wooden statue of President Donald Trump has been unveiled in his wife Melania Trump’s home country of Slovenia.

It looks like something out of sandbox video game Minecraft ― and it’s dividing opinion, just as a similar structure of the first lady did last month.

Artist Tomaz Schlegl said his 26-foot high statue of the president in Sela pri Kamniku — which will be burned to the ground on Halloween — is a commentary on populist politics…

…Schlegl swiped at the hypocrisy of populist leaders by including a mechanism in the statue’s face that changes it from “very friendly during the week to really scary over the weekends,” he explained.

But some online commenters have declared the statue a “waste of wood,” per the BBC, while a farmer also reportedly attempted to plow a tractor into the artwork.

We just use random brush and dead-fall for our bonfires, but I could really see this being copycatted all around the States.

Got a match?
