It goes without saying that Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin have a lot in common. Both are misogynistic jerks with a penchant for political power (only one actually has it… for now). Both give most women the heebie jeebies, like, sexually. Both aren’t exactly gung-ho about locking lips with another man, let alone each other.
But now, in a mural that will turn you off more than Ted Cruz eating a sandwich, the Russian President and the wannabe American President are depicted making out. For whatever reason they’re wearing what appears to be matching Adidas turtlenecks. The image is captioned by the phrase, “Make everything great again.” The piece was made by the artist Mindaugas Bonanu and appears on the wall of a small BBQ restaurant in the Lithuanian capital, Vilnius.
Bonanu’s piece is disturbing for a number of reasons. There’s the obvious “ew” factor, but more importantly, we’re reminded of the terrifying prospect of these two men having a political relationship, should Trump secure the oval. Both have been quoted stating, in one form or another, that they admire the other. Putin even said of Trump that he’s, “a bright and talented person without any doubt… an outstanding and talented personality.” Here they may only be depicted sucking face, but apparently the two have been metaphorically sucking each others dicks for months now.
And while I’m all for pissing off Trump and Putin, this is really too kind a depiction of these assholes. They’re much saggier and wrinklier than this. But it does appear on the side of a restaurant; I guess the artist didn’t want to spoil customer’s appetites any further.
