Donald Trump is not happy with ‘unflattering’ nude portrait by gender-fluid artist

Joe Williams April 19, 2016

Trump’s legal team has reportedly threatened to sue an artist for painting a nude portrait of the Republican candidate.

We’ve seen him seek world domination in the upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse, wage war in the Seven Kingdoms in Game of Thrones and do battle with The Plastics.

However, prepare to see Donald Trump in a way that you’ve never seen him before – completely naked.

Artist Illma Gore says that Trump’s legal team has contacted her over the ‘unflattering’ portrayal of the politician and business tycoon in a recent portrait.

And it seems the egotistical presidential wannabe is particularly offended by Gore’s representation of his manhood.

“I thought it would be interesting to paint a micro-penis onto this prolific figure,” Gore said.

The piece – titled ‘Make America Great Again’ – was originally unveiled by the artist in February.

“Because no matter what is in your pants, you can still be a big prick,” she said upon its release.

The piece quickly went viral, attracting bids of over $141,770 (£100,000) after it went on display in London earlier this month.

However, Gore says Trump’s legal team have contacted her twice threatening lawsuits.

In addition, Facebook warned the gender fluid artist of legal action under ‘copyright violation’.

Gore has accused the social media giant – along with eBay and Twitter – of attempting to censor her work.

The uncensored original can be seen on the artist’s Facebook page (NSFW).

Gore says she has also faced violent faced death threats from some Trump supporters.

“I don’t believe I did anything wrong,” Gore told the Daily News. “It’s my work and I’ll stand by it no matter what.”

And she doesn’t intend to stop with Trump.

“Donald was the first of a couple of leaders I plan on painting to highlight that genitals don’t mean much,” she said.

“It’s what’s inside that counts, it’s not the peel, its the ‘nana.”
