Creative Protest: A Hut Shaped Like Trump’s Hair

IMG_5393

Wandering around New York City, you are prone to stumble across a Donald Trump protest these days. There is the Donald dino who lets you beat him, there are homeless men asking for $1 or they will vote Trump – and now there is the Trump Hut.

I saw the “luxury protesting hut in the shape of Donald Trump’s hair” outside the Trump Hotel on Columbus Circle, a favorite spot for protestors.

The hut was made by a Mexican artist and consists of 96 hula skirts  – which most closely resembles the texture of the GOP nominee’s hair. Despite looking like Donald Trump, the hut is actually quiet comfortable and can house up to two people.

Positioned just outside the over the top Trump Hotel, the hut was meant to show income disparity. Another interpretation is the dystopian future all of us will be living in, if Trump becomes president.

If you are interested in supporting this prime real estate project, the group behind it has started a Kickstarter campaign, where you can buy shares.

It might not protect you if Donald Trump becomes commander in chief, but it sure as hell looks like a nuclear fallout shelter.

Events: Rally Against Donald Trump

A coalition of diverse groups is hosting a hometown-rally against Donald Trump tomorrow (Saturday) at noon. Starting point is Columbus Circle in Manhattan, right in front of Trump Hotel. A counter prozest is expected.


“Donald J. Trump has made headlines in recent months with his divisive rhetoric, hate speech, and extremist plans to “make America great again”. We, in fact, believe this will do the opposite to this nation. Trump’s policies threaten many of us in the Black, Latino, LGBTQIA+, Muslim, and other communities. These policies and type of speech has no place in this country, and certainly does not have a place in the city that Trump grew his empire in–a city known as a melting pot and home for many of the same people Trump continues to wage war on. Join us at Columbus Circle as we march to Trump Tower and say NO to hate, NO to divisiveness, NO to fascist policies, and most importantly, NO to Donald J. Trump.”
