Video Shows Tussle Over Naked Hillary Clinton Statue in NYC

NEW YORK (AP) — First there was a naked Donald Trump statue. Now there’s a statue of a topless, hoofed Hillary Clinton.

The life-size statue of the Democratic presidential nominee appeared outside a subway station Tuesday in lower Manhattan.

It wasn’t immediately clear who created the statue, but it caused quite a stir. Video by the New York Daily News showed it knocked down, with a woman stomping and at one point sitting on top of it to prevent others from putting it upright.

In August, an artist displayed a naked statue of Donald Trump outside another Manhattan subway stop. It was removed because the artist lacked a permit.

Police and city officials haven’t said why and how the Clinton statue was removed.

Clinton’s campaign didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.
