God Emperor Trump Conquers Italy

This event occurred at the Carnevale in Viareggio, Italy.

The Carnevale di Viareggio draws hundreds of thousands of people to the Tuscan city each year, and is renowned for its papier-mache sculptures.

Dubbed "The Master Drone" the float was created by Fabrizio Galli and depicts Trump as a God Emperor from the Warhammer 40,000 series.

In the series, the Emperor of Mankind is the greatest embodiment of universal order.

According to the carnival's organisers, the parallelism between Trump and the character in the series has "never been more fitting".

"Donald wants to go back to the moon, travel to Mars and create the first space army," a statement on the event's website said.

"The time of intellectuals, philosophers and of old and worn culture is over."

Apparently giant figures are big things in Italian carnevals; there's a weird sequence in Fellini's Casanova depicting a giant Venus (?) rising from the river, then collapsing back in when the rigging breaks.

And now Trump has been so immortalized.

As a God Emperor of Warhammer 40K Space Marines.

The designer means this all as cheeky irony -- he says Trump is trying to "destroy nations with the economy" using tariffs (his sword says, approximately, "Here are your fucking tariffs") -- but I choose to take this wonderful tribute seriously, but not literally.

Here's another clip of the carneval, featuring more creepy giant dolls, including one giant Trump baby one. Albeit, a giant baby who wants to go to the Moon, which is pretty good.
