As attendees arrive for the Conservative Political Action Conference in Florida, they will walk past a giant golden statue of former President Donald Trump. The golden likeness of Trump dons American flag shorts and wields a wand.
As the statue was wheeled into the gathering Thursday, onlookers and conference participants could be heard laughing and applauding it. Various voices saying "awesomeness" and "so cool" can be heard in the video, as well as a chant of "four more years."
Online, the reaction was more mixed. Some likened its display to the Old Testament account of the Israelites worshipping a golden calf at the base of Mt. Sinai.
