A Naked Man Yells For Donald Trump In Times Square & There's A Hilariously Ironic Twist
New York City's Times Square is known for hosting an array of colorful presentations and riveting events, such as the famous New Year's Eve ball drop. Internationally-renowned celebrations aside, a naked man beckoning Donald Trump from the top of a staircase in Duffy Square might have taken the cake on Thursday morning. Bizarre occurrences are a treasured part of New Yorkers' everyday commute, but they surely weren't expecting this. The scene helped to defuse the currently tense political environment, and was undeniably humorous. However, it's important to consider the man's mental health in this situation, as well.
“Donald Trump, where are you!" the apparently early riser bellowed loudly at 8 a.m. "Donald Trump, where the f– are you?!" Police were already on the scene, trying to predict his next move. The show lasted for an hour, ending when the man jumped off of the 16-foot-tall staircase around 9 a.m. Police had blown up an airbag below him to break his fall, but he missed it. His physical condition is unknown at this point in time, but he continued to fight with police upon landing on the pavement. He was taken away while conscious on a stretcher. Handling the situation with an incredible calm, they continued their attempt to help the man, even after he allegedly spit in their faces and mocked them.
Before jumping, the man made an array of random proclamations, such as "I love you, Bruce Weber,” and “I love you, Mario Testino.” He also mentioned that he loves his mother. Chances are he wouldn't have told Trump the same. Soaking up the attention, he allegedly blew kisses to the crowd and let them know he was a virgin. There have also been reports that he referred to himself as "mother earth." Most ironically, he shouted, “I love fashion, it’s taught me so much!”
Except he wasn't kidding. The man has been identified as fashion model Krit McClean. His blog's "About" page reads:
I attended Stuyvesant High School in Tribeca, before pursuing a Bachelor’s at Columbia University. However, I’m currently on a gap year to give my modeling career every chance, as well as to establish this blog. My style is inspired by experiences and interests including: sneakerhead culture, extensive travel through Asia, urban street-wear, art, hip-hop, and modeling.
A man named Wesley Ahlgren was eating breakfast with his family nearby and recited his firsthand account to the New York Daily News. Apparently, the Marriott Renaissance Hotel provided a great view of the ordeal. Some locals called it "Just a Thursday in New York." An Australian family said, "We came for sightseeing — but how are we going to top this?" Trump has not commented on the incident, as he is traveling to New Hampshire to give a speech on trade.
