Not to be outdone by the golden calf, someone made a life size golden statue of Donald Trump for the CPAC. I first thought it was a joke when I read about it and perhaps it is. Maybe the sculptor is a member of Antifa and the joke is on those attending the conference. It seems strange that those who consider themselves more Christian than others would want to imply that a little idol worship is not so bad. Praise Trump Almighty! Maybe after the conference one of the evangelical churches of Trump would like to have it near the altar in their church. It could replace the cross.
In my opinion, a more appropriate destination would be to have it repurposed as a urinal for a restroom in our nation's Capitol. I have not been in D.C. since I was stationed at Fort Belvoir Virginia in the mid 1960s but I would love to go there again to share a few golden moments with Donald J. Trump.
