Some strange news to report here from Berlin, Germany. With election day just moments away.
The world famous Madame Tussaud Wax Museum apparently decided they had enough of Pres. Donald Trump. With reports telling they literally moved to dump Trump.
Madame Tussaud marketing manager Orkide Yalcindag announced that, “Today’s activity is rather of a symbolic character ahead of the elections in the United States, We here at Madame Tussauds Berlin removed Donald Trump’s waxwork as a preparatory measure.”
They didn’t just remove the president’s likeness. But loaded its effigy of TV star-turned Republican president Donald Trump into a dumpster Talk about adding insult to injury.
The museum originally began in 19th century London. Over the years it has expanded to various locations around the world. Many historical figures are depicted in their works. As they would become quite a tourist attraction.
Pres. Trump trails his opponent ex-Vice President Joe Biden in most national polls with under three days remaining. RealClearPolitics has Biden up slightly under 8 points in their national averages polling.
And apparently Tussaud’s have utilized the power of artistic expression before. From The Hill:
This is not the first time Tussauds used a Trump figure to make a statement. In August, the museum’s New York location placed a face mask on their Trump to encourage visitors to wear them to help fight the spread of the covid-19.
Trump troubled by a range of issues these days. That one being a primary problem for him.
Beyond that, U.S. relations with Germany taking a turn south during Trump’s time in office. The relationship between him and German Chancellor Angela Merkel could be called frosty.
Still Trump has plenty to worry about at home. The prevailing sentiment now he’s fighting to keep his presidency. While indications are it may be in vain.
Speaking of actors and actresses, Jim Carrey also piled on to Trump recently with his political artwork on Twitter. This time Carrey drew Republican Senator Ted Cruz. Carrey drew Cruz as the devil.
After seeing Carrey’s post Cruz took it in stride and asked if he could get a copy of the drawing to hang in his office.
“Ted Cruz, Hellbound Class of 2020,” Carrey captioned his post.
Not long after making the post Ted Cruz noticed and responded with, “Hey @JimCarrey can I get a copy of this for my office?”
Carrey has returned to his comedic roots and is playing Joe Biden on “Saturday Night Live.” He has posted countless pieces of his artwork and that artwork often mocks Donald Trump and his allies.
Carrey is a vocal Trump critic and has compared Trump to cult leader Jim Jones, mocked his Saudi ties, and has labeled Trump supporters as “loyal zombies.”
In January, Carrey shared on social media that he would no longer be sharing his political artwork. He did take a brief break but soon returned to sharing his art.
Carrey stated during a recent interview that he feels that he has made his point when it comes to sharing his political art that slammed Trump, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, Rudy Giuliani, and more.
“To me, that was like a time, and it’s been a time, where I just wanted to be the lighthouse that was saying, ‘Hey, stay off the rocks, you’re headed for the rocks,'” Carrey said.
“We’re still headed for the rocks, but I’ve decided, ‘You understand my message, I don’t need to be steeped in it anymore.’ I think after a while … you get stuck in that kind of stuff.”
One day after sharing his Ted Cruz drawing, Carrey shared his latest Trump art.
He captioned the Trump drawing,”I’m cured of the Covid. I’m totally immune. Who you gonna believe, me or some scientific test results? Regeneron is great. Every senior’s gonna get some and Mexico’s gonna pay for it!”
Jim Carrey has been anything but quiet when it comes to criticism of Donald Trump and the Republican party.
Carrey said in a recent op-ed piece in The Atlantic titled: ‘Truth, Justice, and a World Without Trump’: ten” actor announced:
“I’ve spent much of my career trying to reach audiences through humor. It’s always come from a loving place, a joyful place—wanting to free people from concern. I know that hearing a performer give voice to the things you’re thinking and feeling can be an enormous relief and that laughing hysterically at a willing fool is almost always good medicine.” He added, “But relying on jokes can sometimes cancel out the seriousness of what you’re trying to say. At this moment, the best anyone can offer is gallows humor. The truth is, we should all be seriously concerned.”
As Carrey told, “The United States faces catastrophe” and urged voters to turnout in November, “we must vote in historic numbers, gathering all the “snowflakes” until there’s a blizzard on Capitol Hill that no corrupt politician can survive. We must vote for decency, humanity, and a way of life that once again captures the imagination of kids all over the world—kids like me”
Carrey questioned, “How did a bourgeois New York con artist convince so many people he was on their side? Was it the trucker’s hat? I’m wearing sandals right now, but that doesn’t make me Gandhi. Was it the fawning coverage on cable news? I know funny; Fox News is a joke that’s not funny, and it’s being told at the expense of our democracy.”
“The Mask” icon quipped, “Was it his performances on the WWF or The Apprentice? I was amused to see Trump play the self-made billionaire in Home Alone 2, but the presidency is not performance art. People’s lives depend on him. Our future is at stake.”
