They should have made it from a more realistic substance that doesn't burn: silicone.

They should keep gathering up the ashes of the statues that burn - eventually they'll have enough to make a new one from all that dust.

A melange of memorial embers to remake model Melania's monument.

Kind of a sad story, just like her.  Good-looking young lady but from a struggling former Yugoslavian state.  So she focused her hopes for success on becoming a mail-order bride, and her pig of a husband forces her to constantly get plastic surgery so that she fits his demented idea of what a woman should look like.  And now she is a weird-looking freak.  That sounds like something from a horror movie, not the life story of the First Lady of the United States.

Bronze is hard to burn down.

Toppling it over, and/or denting it is more realistic.

Or just tow it out to a deep lake, and dump it.

"The sculpture bares no obvious resemblance to the US first lady."

Hmmm... Freudian, from her previous career, TFA author?

It was carved in a linden tree


Must resist obvious but incredibly misogynistic joke.

I don't know, she seems like a wooden puppet most of the time, so I think it's pretty accurate.

That last sentence:

Have at it, Farkers...

I figured I'd be misogynistic enough to ferret it out but nope.

How would anyone be able to tell a statue from the real Melania? Any scowling mannequin would pass for her.

Oddly enough, that statue has done the exact same amount of work she's done on her Be Best campaign.

I disagree. I think it captures the very essence of Melanoma.

And, somehow, manages to be less wooden than the subject.

If I assume that this replacement statue came directly from the architectural design budget for the Rose Garden, that whole fiasco makes much more sense now.

I don't hate the primitive folk art quality of it. It's the juxtaposition with the real thing that makes it weird. She's like the opposite of that statue. She's entirely artificial and sculpted to the bone. There's nothing organic about her. There's nothing real about her.

Kinda off topic but the other day i fell asleep during the news, and woke up with some Hollywood show going (entertainment tonight?). They were running something on the kardashians. Random film loops, blah blah blah, and all i could think was "Holy hell, every single one of these people are the ugliest MF's i've ever seen in hollywood." And they cut away to who ever wast hosting the show and good lord... melted the eyes outa my sockets.

Point is, all these people spend so much on plastic surgery, and end up looking not just farking terrible, but horribly FAKE. Like, really fake awful human beings that i wouldn't want anywhere near my kids. They. look. disgusting.

My first thought when I saw the sculpture was "looks like they hired the Jesus painter for the job."

Wow.  She looks similar to my first daughter's mother (don't judge, I was young and everything looked good back then)and that picture actually looks like my daughter's personality when you piss her off.
