A Ripley's-affiliated wax museum in San Antonio, Texas was forced this week to move a sculpture of former President Donald Trump into storage — because guests kept punching it in the face. It is unclear exactly when the sculpture will return, but sources suggest it will remain in storage at least until a sculpture of President Joe Biden, currently being created in Orlando, Florida can be put on display as well.
News of the Trump statue's plight was met with uproarious humor from commenters on social media, many of whom voiced their approval of the anti-Trump vandals. There were even proposals to turn the statue-punching into a charitable fundraising event.
My friend has a voodoo doll of him, but sadly, stabbing him in the nuts hadn't worked.... or has it....

They should use it as a fund raiser. $5 a hit. Money goes to the local food bank or homeless shelter.

I'm very ashamed to admit this but I can't stop laughing
How about a Trump pinata instead? pic.twitter.com/PNUjWkvggK

I love San Antonio. They recognize a pendejo when they see one.

They could just put it in a special place where people can see it but not damage it. It has to be strong, so use long steel bars. Probably best to orient it vertically for best viewing. pic.twitter.com/Gi3HurNt8z

I just watched The Lincoln Projects clip showing T**** say "the Chinese flu". I thought to myself that I felt like punching him in the face everytime he said that. Maybe Madame Tussaud should charge for a punch?😂

We were in Nikko, Japan, in 2018 and saw a group of Buddhist monks whacking at a Trump piñata on the top of a mountain we hiked up. It was one of those times when you look @ each other & say “You're seeing this too, right?!"

San Antonio is Military City USA. They can't help it. They've all been trained to punch Nazis.

Ok, that's one way to deal with it. But the entrepreneur in me says to make 10 of them and charge people $500 or $1,000 to punch it, with profits going to charity.

Sounds like a money maker to me. Poor business decision. pic.twitter.com/OHmXsPIBtC
