Madam Tussauds Berlin can’t cast a vote in Tuesday’s election, but they’ve made their preference known. The world-famous waxwork museum, which has effigies of hundreds of celebrities, recently updated its President Donald Trump exhibit.

On Friday, the museum stuffed his statue into a dumpster with a sign that read “Dump Trump,” Reuters reported. The statue of former President Barack Obama remained in its normal position, bespoke suit an all. Reuters pointed out that Obama has been a good friend of Germany Chancellor Angela Merkel.

“Today’s activity is rather of a symbolic character ahead of the elections in the United States,” said the museum’s marketing manager Orkide Yalcindag, according to Reuters. “We here at Madame Tussauds Berlin removed Donald Trump’s waxwork as a preparatory measure.”

The race between Donald Trump and Joe Biden is likely going to be close, according to the most recent polling. Though, FiveThirtyEight reports Biden has an 89 in 100 chance of winning the election. They simulated the election 40,000 times to reach that conclusion. However, the statistical analysis site gave Hillary Clinton an 88 percent chance of winning the election in mid-October 2016.

As they have with the Obama statue, the museum keeps on hand all of their former U.S. presidents’ statues. The museum will likely return the Trump statue to its regular position after the election.

Donald Trump’s Walk of Fame Star Damaged — Again

Someone has once again damaged President Donald Trump’s Walk of Fame star in Hollywood, Fox News reported.

However, TMZ caught the vandal on camera this time, and it isn’t the man’s first offense. James Otis is responsible for destroying the Walk of Fame star on numerous occasions since 2016. This time, Otis was dressed in his Sunday best for the demolition process. Armed with his trusty pickaxe, he went to work on the star. 

Officials covered the star with plywood and had a fence surrounding the perimeter of it. This didn’t slow down Otis in the least. Once he had finished redecorating the star, he turned himself in to the police, who booked him with a vandalism felony.
