Agelbert NOTE: This abandoned sculpture is a visual prophetic metaphor of what Trump and Republicans ARE NOW DOING to the USA. >:(

SNIPPET:

He’s tried to have his name removed from all his abandoned buildings here, but it’s still there if you look hard enough.”

One such place is the grounds of the Taj, where an elephant has the Trump name emblazoned below its feet. This flashy monument was created by sculptor Michael MacLeod, who was never paid for his work. Rose believes the elephant, which remained at the site when he visited in 2016 because it was too heavy to move, is a great metaphor for Trump’s own legacy in Atlantic City: “Making a lot of noise and stomping his weight around, but ultimately only leaving a trail of destruction.”
