A wax statue of President Donald Trump has been removed from Louis Tussaud’s Waxworks Museum in San Antonio, Texas, because petulant leftists won’t stop punching and vandalizing it.
The figure has now been moved to storage and likely won’t be placed back on the floor until the figure of Joe Biden is completed and also placed.
Clay Stewart, regional manager for Ripley Entertainment, which owns the wax museum, told the San Antonio Express News that “when it’s a highly political figure, attacks can be a problem.”
“Wax figures are rotated all the time,” Stewart said, however, the removal of President Trump was not due to a lack of interest like other figures that get put away.
Leftist visitors with no sense of decency or how to behave in public had been clawing at the figure’s face and actually pummeling it when they visited the museum.
“Trump’s removal was the result of the damage the figure sustained, not the ebb and flow of his public status,” the Express reported. “Not even moving Trump to the lobby, where ticket attendants could keep an eye out for attackers, stopped them from taking shots at the statue, which is dressed in a blue suit and the Republican’s trademark red tie.”
It turns out, the statues of Barack Obama and George Bush have also had some issues, however.
“We’ve always had trouble with the presidential section because no matter what president it was — Bush, Obama or Trump — they’ve all had people beat them,” Stewart said. “The ears were torn off Obama six times. And then Bush’s nose was punched in.”
Obama’s statue was repeatedly shipped to Florida for repairs, unlike the Trump statue. Stewart claims that this is due to COVID creating a shortage of artists.
The abuse against Obama’s statue also trickled out after he left office. The left just doesn’t seem to be able to give up their Trump obsession.
“Obama currently stands near Trump’s former domain in the wax museum — an empty podium with the presidential seal, backdropped by a wall-size image of the White House. The Democrat is decked out in presidential casual: white dress shirt and charcoal gray slacks, no jacket or tie,” the Express report says.
