A figure of former President Donald Trump was being displayed at the museum, but unfortunately is now in hiding. Apparently, the dummy of President Trump has suffered damage from both punches and scratches to its face.

According to regional manager for the museum owner Ripley Entertainment, Clay Stewart, “When it’s a highly political figure, attacks can be a problem.” He also noted that with limited space they decide which figures they want to display based on how the popularity of the politician, star athlete, or celebrity has stood up over time. Apparently, Trump is now in good company sharing storage space with George Washington, W.C Fields, and 30 other wax figures. This after visitor’s attack on the Trump wax figure increased during the 2020 presidential campaign. The company did try to move Trump to the lobby, where ticket attendants could keep an eye out for attackers and stop them, but people still kept taking their shots at the figure.

The photo of wax Trump startled me because it looks more life like than Trump himself and, at first glance, I thought the person doing his hairline was Kamala Harris.

I AGREE


Not quite as popular as it once was.
Interesting he tried to sell the lease in 2019. It's hard to say if the too high price was Trump's imagination of what it was worth or if he didn't really want to sell it but maybe wanted to see what price might be offered.

But what is most interesting is he was looking to divest in one of his emoluments cash cows before the 2020 election. I wouldn't be surprised if his internal campaign polls were telling him he was going to lose.

Or maybe he was worried that emoluments lawsuit was about to be decided against him.
