Imagine the liberal outrage if those naked Trump statues were of Hillary Clinton

Here in New York, the erection of the statue — which features a teeny Trumpy weeny and testicles nowhere to be seen — was an immediate hit in Union Square. It became a popular selfie destination on Thursday, before the NYC Parks Department took it down.

But as much fun at it is to laugh at the idea of Trump testes turtling up given his language on the subject during the primaries, I quickly realized that the public’s reaction would never have been the same if an artist had installed one of, say, Hillary Clinton or Bernie Sanders. Liberal outrage is selective, and if a conservative street artist took a shot the other way, justice in the court of public opinion would be swift, and I suspect the Parks Department would never have issued the sarcastic reply it did in this case: “NYC Parks stands firmly against any unpermitted erection in city parks, no matter how small.”
