‘You’re fired’ – Trump effigy feels the heat on UK bonfire night

Trump EffigyHe turned “You’re fired” into his reality show catch-phrase, but it was Donald Trump who went up in flames on Saturday – or at least an effigy of him did, as part of Britain’s annual Bonfire Night celebrations.

An 11-metre-high (36 feet) model of the Republican U.S. presidential candidate was burned at a fireworks display in the town of Edenbridge, 30 miles (50 km) south of London.

The sculpture showed Trump, complete with his trademark mop of hair, holding his Democratic rival for the White House, Hilary Clinton, in a headlock, and sporting a pair of Mexico-themed boxer shorts.

“I think he would be quietly amused,” artist Frank Shepherd said of his muse.

Britain celebrates the failed attempt to blow up the Houses of Parliament in 1605 by letting off fireworks and lighting bonfires with an effigy of the “Gunpowder Plot” leader Guy Fawkes on top.

    As for Hillary, burning is the traditional method of getting rid of witches.

    What’s the matter not brave enough to burn one of your own politicians in effigy….say someone who is out to ruin your country as you know it….let me think…Oh!! I Know!!! How about the Muslim Mayor of London!!! You could show him holding a Sharia court and beheading the two non-PC Brits that still live in London or is that too Guy Fawkesish for you scholarly types….???
