What is your opinion of the golden statue of Trump brought into CPAC this year?

Many Trump supporters present at CPAC seem to love the statue, and on the outside a lot of Democrats are saying the whole thing is emblematic of the cult of personality Trump has built, with a literal golden idol of him being present at the convention--even spurring some references to the 'golden calf' story in the Bible.

 

Is this just a harmless gesture by the artist, a patriotic homage to your favorite president, or is it tasteless or maybe bad optics to have it there? Do you have any opinion of the statue?

    I think it's hilarious. The magic wand is the perfect touch - his die hard supporters truly believe he has one.

    The funniest part is that it was made in Mexico.

    Tasteless, classless, crude. Pretty much sums up Trump and the reason the left and the media. Had so much ammo against him, probably the reason. Even with the covid outbreak, he was not reelected.

    Notice how not a single right-wing lunatic here in Y!A or anywhere else has howled about our flag being used......"down there".  If that isn't disrespecting our nation and our brave troops, I don't know what is.  Can how imagine the uproar and outrage coming from Republicans if any athlete taking a knee had worn a flag "down there"??  We'd still be hearing about it.  The statue is an insult to Trump and our flag and Trump's sycophants are too dense to see it.  It's hilarious!!!!

    and look they made onto themselves a golden calf to bow down to their false god.

  • That's how el'ites think. They believe the "above as below", until we get a valid 3rd party, all we can do is watch the children play their games.

    Along with the Odal rune-shaped stage, a Raiders of the Lost Ark theme seems to emerge.

    People like @mustagme are very disturbing.

    Doesn't matter to me one way or the other.

    A little gaudy, but President Trump is definitely worthy of it.

    Edit: why am I disturbing? At least I post without anonymity.
