Cannot Resist this Temptation: Full Frontal Nude Donald Trump

Dicky Neely's got some serious competition in London.  Illma Gore’s painting Make America Great Again, on display at Maddox Gallery in London now with a £1million price tag, depicts the Republican presidential candidate with a small penis.  An infamous nude of Donald Trump has attracted bids of over £100,000 after it went on display at the Maddox Gallery in Mayfair, London, last week, but the artist is being anonymously threatened with legal action if she sells it, due to its resemblance to the Republican presidential hopeful.

I didn't realize that the depiction of the genitalia of a public figure could be copyrighted!!

I do worry about you, jmac.

Meh.  That pretty much how I envision all guys...  their egos are much bigger than their reality.

BTW, did you know the artist of that "piece" has received death threats and was beaten by Trump supporters?

Julia Ioffe, the veteran journalist who wrote a bland GQ piece on Melania Trump has also been swamped w death threats and neo-Nazi 'cartoons'.

Amy thanks for the link.  In the UK the Telegraph reported the story like this:

'Naked Donald Trump' artist says she was assaulted by one of his fans

This image from google directs you to a post on Danger & Play blog site claiming it was all a hoax to market the painting:

Who to believe? That's going to be the question in 2016.

Jon, I featured the harassment of Julia Ioffe a few days ago in The Bad, the Ugly and the Good.  All of this crap turns my head inside out.  Thanks for reading and commenting.

Ron, the beauty of Mel Brooks is that it can be in the worst possible taste and still make most people laugh:

Mel turns ninety in June, I hope he has another tasteless musical comedy in him "2016 - Interesting Times in America."
