In an election season unlike any before it, the possibility of some sort of supernatural element invading the American political process seems like the next possible evolutionary step of weird. Today, we hit the next level of “strange” as New Yorkers strolling through Central Park early this morning found a Donald Trump tombstone. With the epitaph reading “Made America Hate Again” and featuring Trump’s birth year of 1946 and the death date open, this is more than some anti-Trump graffiti or Fedex-Kinkos-made protest sign. Someone threw down some cash for this statement.
Here’s a closer angle on the tombstone.
This creepy photo has the creepy hashtag of #centralparkdogs. Why is it so creepy? I don’t know. It kind of is though, right?
According to NYC Channel 7‘s Kristin Thorne, the tombstone has since been removed. Authorities have no leads on who erected the tombstone, nor has there been any info released on if this was a real, heavy-duty tombstone. It’s definitely interesting, but what’s the point? What’s the subtext?
Now, had someone created an effigy of Donald Trump in Central Park made out of a Tombstone pizza, that may have had a more impactful message. This is pretty much just a waste of marble and limestone, and a harsh reminder that we are all mortal – even Donald Trump.
