Donald Trump fortune-teller machine appears in New York
UPI News Service, 10/12/2016
A fortune-teller machine featuring an animatronic Donald Trump was spotted at various locations throughout New York City.
The "All-Seeing Trump" statue was initially spotted by reporter Camille Dodero near Greenpoint on Tuesday morning, but was eventually hauled off in a van before appearing in front of Trump Tower in Manhattan, according to Gothamist.
The animatronic fortune-teller similar to the "Zoltar" machines popularized by the film "Big" can be heard making predictions about Trump's presidency and heckling passersby.
"Hey, you look poor," the machine said, according to The Washington Times.
"Why don't you come over here and stand in front of a rich puppet and I'll tell you your future. All right, look into my crystal ball and see America's future."
The Trump fortune-telling machine is the product of four Brooklyn artists, as well as a comedian who provided the machine's voice, according to PIX11.
A similar stunt by artist collective INDECLINE in August saw nude statues of Donald Trump appear in five different U.S. cities including New York.
