18. I know some people have big problems with public nudity, pictures of naked people, and such

but this isn't that big of a deal, to my mind.

Of course artistic interpretation is subjective, but the clear message of this piece is an allusion to "The Emperor Has No Clothes". Trump has fully exposed himself- not his body, but his soul- for the world to see.

This is a statement on that, I think.

The real threat to my mind isn't naked bodies, it's people taking Trump seriously. And if this art causes people to take Trump less seriously, it succeeds. We as Americans SHOULD NOT be taking Trump seriously, and if we are we should ask ourselves why.
