Naked Trump statue appears near Holland Tunnel
The orange-tinted statues, called "The Emperor Has No Balls,” originally appeared in U.S. cities in August and feature a massive belly, small fingers and missing some genital parts.
Commuters heading into the Holland Tunnel are now facing more than traffic jams.
After an artists' collective exposed the nation last month to life-sized nude Donald Trump statues in cities across the U.S. — including New York City, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Seattle and Cleveland —they have reappeared in public.
The “anarchist” art collective, Indecline, placed the statues on a building rooftop near the Holland Tunnel in New Jersey, and on a billboard facing Interstate 95 in Miami, according to the Los Angeles Times. They popped up on Wednesday, the same day that Trump sat down with Dr. Mehmet Oz to discuss his health records, saying he needed to lose some weight, the Times added.

The orange-tinted statues, called "The Emperor Has No Balls,” feature a massive belly, small fingers and missing some genital parts.
According to the Washington Post, these statues are two additional ones to the others that were previously displayed, and were commissioned by Mana Contemporary, a New Jersey-based art center after the naked statutes became a viral sensation. The property where the Jersey statue sits is reportedly owned by Mana Contemporary.
There is a rooftop billboard behind the Jersey statue by Indecline featuring an upside-down American flag and a pile of fallen stars, the Post reported.
"Unlike the first 5, these two are set to run until the election in November at which time they will be returned to Indecline and put up for auction," an Indecline statement said, according to the Post. "The statue placed there is highly visible to commuters from the nearby highway," the statement added.
In Miami, the statue was placed on a billboard on a vacant property, and police asked the property manager to remove it and he agreed to relocate it,according to WTVJ.
