It’s missing a russian flag pin


#3

put the pressure release vent in it’s mouth so the hot air comes out all natural like


#4

A MAGA hat would be a nice touch.


#5

It would certainly give the tourists something photograph.


#6

The Russian pin will be inserted when his collusion with Russia is revealed, simultaneously deflating both the giant rat and his presidency.


#7

so many ways to depict the donald - is this one known / dog-whistly / offensive? - if so i will remove it


#8

I don’t know that meme; why would it be offensive/dog whistle?


#9

i don’t even know what the heck it is - could be anything


#10

There is zero chance the Secret Service / NYPD would allow this to be placed outside the Trump Tower.

It’s a nice idea, but I think the money and effort would be better focused elsewhere.

Perfect for this most New York of right-wing plutocrat demagogues. Scabby the Rat was one of the many unique little touches that made my years in NYC so memorable, although at the time I just called him “Ya Rat Bastid!”


#12

$5 pledged, fingers crossed


#13

Perhaps a projected image would do. After all it’s (mostly) night when the rats come out.


#14

Show me the permits to keep it permanently outside Rump tower and I will contribute.


#15

No sympathies for Trump here, but likening political opponents to rats and other vermin is a slippery path.


#16

Depicting Trump as a rat. I don’t know. Couldn’t that be interpreted as animal cruelty?

it’s from this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c9yz6Gd216o
