Women Idiotically Strip Down to... Protest Trump?
There's a lot of people out there who hate Donald Trump. Spencer Tunick, photographer of naked ladies, is one of them. In fact, he hates Trump so much that he talked 100 naked women into letting him take their picture in a field. Which protests Donald Trump because... bewbs?
More than a hundred women stripped and posed naked with mirrors in Cleveland, answering a photographer's call to blend art with politics and portray Donald Trump as unfit for the White House. They gathered on the eve of the Republican National Convention, where the brash New York billionaire will be anointed the party's nominee for president after winning a raucous primary race despite alarm from the party establishment and the country at large about his divisiveness.
"He is a loser," photographer Spencer Tunick told AFP after the sunrise shoot in which 130 women took part. One hundred of them will be featured in the picture to be unveiled shortly before the November 8 election. The installation took place on private property in sight of the arena where the convention kicks off on Monday, the focus of multiple groups of protesters expected to take to the streets this week.
"I have two daughters and a wife," he said. "I can't believe the language and rhetoric of hate against women and minorities coming from the Republican Party." He said he had to do something to counter "this idiotic thinking."
When asked for comment, the photographer had this to say.
What does being naked and annoying prove, you ask? Well... mostly that you're naked. And annoying. That's... that's about it. But no matter, when it comes to protests, anything goes. In this case, it's the clothes. Long gone are the days of simply sitting with a picket sign and yelling stuff for your cause. Hashtags are great and all, but the violation of public nudity laws separates the true professional protestors from the ham-and-eggers.
No comment yet from Trump on the charade, but we've received word that his staffers are looking over the photographs with great... vigor.
I know. I know. Naked women are brave according to modern feminists and SJWs. And I'm sure that taking pictures of 100 naked women really does send a message to the photographer's two daughters. A message that says they, too, can one day aspire to strip down for a cause. Even if the cause is really just a creepy "political activist" photographer wanting to see tons of boobage. Somebody pin that guy with a "smartest conman in the world" medal.
Speaking of stripping down...
