created life-sized naked donald trump statues that were placed around the country. here's a look at one of them in los angeles. the statues were created by a las vegas artist named "ginger". he usually creates and designs monsters for horror films and haunted houses. the statues are made of nearly 300 pounds of clay and silicone... and weigh about 80- pounds each. it took the artist about four months to complete the project. passer-by's had mixed reaction about seeing the nude republican presidential nominee. "perfect and disturbing." "i think it's
"it was pretty cool, this is pretty heavy though. i think, we check on the hashtags online and i guess they are doing this all over the country and it's pretty awesome. i like it." the statues were also on display in new york... san francisco... and seattle. trump's campaign has not commented on the statues. a news interview goes viral... for all the wrong reasons.. jeanne moos has more on the hilarious and mesmerizing exchange. --reporter pkg-as follows-- it was a little like the old abbott and costello routine about the guy with the last name "who" playing first base...

(michael cohen, donald trump attorney) "says who?" #sayswho became a thing. the aftermath of the interview "you're fired" "says who." who else says who? either trump's attorney was in denial about the polls... (alisyn camerota, anchor, "new day") "or doing his best impression of an owl." (jeanne moos, reporting) "the
