A statue of a naked Hillary Clinton caused controversy in New York City. Kim Horcher, Francis Maxwell, and Alonzo Bodden, hosts of The Young Turks, break it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.
“NEW YORK -- A statue of a topless, hoofed Hillary Clinton appeared outside a subway station Tuesday, prompting a tussle after one woman purposely knocked it down and sat on it to prevent others from picking it back up.
The display marked the second time a life-size, exaggerated depiction of a naked presidential nominee has surfaced outside a Manhattan subway stop during the general election campaign. In August, an artist’s statue of an unclothed Donald Trump was eventually hauled away by city workers.
But the crowd’s reaction to the naked Clinton was markedly different from that to the Trump statue, when a largely jovial group of onlookers took photos of it and posed for selfies. Some parts of the portly Trump’s genitalia were visible in that statue.
On Tuesday, a woman can be seen on video taken by a reporter for the New York Daily News dragging the life-size structure of the Democratic presidential nominee to the ground, stomping on it and even sitting on top of it to prevent a man from standing it back up again.
“We shouldn’t be treated this way. Period,” another woman can be heard saying.
Another video posted to Instagram showed the tussle.“
