Italian carnival turns Trump into a giant ‘God Emperor’ float holding a massive ‘Twitter’ sword

U.S. President Donald Trump took part in one of the famous carnival events in Italy, the Carnevale Di Viareggio, but he came in the form of a papier-mâché.

The giant  papier-mâché was created by artist Fabrizio Galli for the event, which draws a massive crowd every year in Viareggio, as can be seen in a picture posted on Twitter.

Galli is known for creating floats with political themes. The recent satiric floats he made were of Russian president Vladimir Putin and North Korean president Kim Jong-Un.

According to the parade’s website, the Trump float was called “Master-Drone”. It shows an image of the controversial US President dressed in golden armor with decked out wings. He carries a sword on his right hand with a ring of blue Twitter birds around its grip.

Trump is known to express his thoughts on Twitter against his opponents.

"PAYING THE PRICE"

“The dominant male par-excellence has arrived, democratically, and is now here, among us. The Master-Drone flies over the Viareggio boardwalk as we prepare to pay the price,” according to the parade’s description.

The Master-Drone was made after a character from a miniature war game Warhammer 40,000.

Galli is known for creating floats with political themes. The recent satiric floats he made were of Russian president Vladimir Putin and North Korean president Kim Jong-Un.

A "TRUMP TRIBUTE"

A phrase “dazi vostri” which means “your taxes” was etched on the Trump papier-mâché’s sword blade, but some Italians wrote on Twitter that the expression was a play on words with the expressions “cazzi vostri” meaning “none of your f**king business.”

Many conservatives have commented on Twitter saying that the float was a tribute to the American president. For them, it was a “parade for Trump.”

Since Trump became president, his image has been used in several activities, mostly to mock him. In 2017, his image was placed on an American-themed float.

Another one was a Statue of Liberty on top of Trump’s hair with a giant cowboy and its phrase “Bang Bang” while a Green Day song “American Idiot” was played in the background.

There are still floats for this year’s festival with social-themed messages. The spectators of the show can still view them until March 5. The parade draws an estimated 600,000 spectators yearly.

Always attracting negative media attention, Trump was recently reported to have arrived unannounced at a wedding ceremony at the Trump National Golf Course in Bedminster. He was allegedly seen kissing the bride.
