Creative types, help with suggestions for a monument...

Once the cowards and craven GOP opportunists acquit Trump by failing to convict on all articles of Impeachment, it will be absolutely imperative to create a monument to stand on the National Mall and name names and point out who is responsible for the attempted destruction of the Constitution.

The names are already known - Nunes (and his cow), McConnell, Graham, Gym Jordan, Kennedy, and the rest... I figure a design inspired by the Vietnam Memorial may be appropriate too...to tally the number of KIA for Ukraine, especially those killed in forward areas without adequate weapons or arms and also the number of dead to come in the tumultuous future they are seeding.

So what say you creative souls? I intend to start working on this project as soon as the impeachment vote to convict fails, so we have about a month or two to work with here...

Maybe a cross buried in her back for good measure? A replica bible dropped at the scene...after all the Demented Yam is the "chosen one" and has many fans who would be mollified by religious subtext.

I can sort of visualize the concept here, but the visuals are tough to lock in...

4. First you have statues of Justice, Lady Liberty and small Hispanic children.

Then you have a line of 10 people. Six of them face Justice, Lady Liberty, and the children with their hands outstretched to them.

The next four people turn their backs to Justice, Lady Liberty, and the children but they have their hands outstretched to statues of Trump and Putin who have trampled on the Constitution.

Might need to have the four grabbing children and show them a cage though to really convey the depth of their depravity...

8. An apt metaphor, but difficult to construct!

We could just skip the construction and build a statue of a man pouring buckets of money into the Potomac...

Everytime someone uses the facilities, the TP dispenses with a different image of the Trump error...the best would be TP with an image of Trump climbing AF1 steps with TP stuck to his shoes!!!
