'God Emperor Trump': Italy parade featured giant Trump float that included a Twitter sword, armour, and claw

Screenshot/EuroNews‘The Master Drone’ combined Trump’s image with motifs from the Warhammer 40,000 series.
  • On Saturday, a giant float depicting American President Donald Trump made its debut at the Viareggio Carnevale in Italy.
  • The float, titled “The Master-Drone” by Fabrizio Galli combined Trumpian iconography, including a Twitter sword, with armour from the Warhammer 40,000 miniature wargame, according to information from the festival’s website.
  • Explaining the connection, a statement on the website said, “The parallelism with the dominant character of Warhammer 40K has never been more fitting, except that this is not a futuristic three-dimensional tabletop wargame but pure reality.”
  • The float included multiple moving parts, and featured Trump’s head adorned with laurels, a sharp claw, and a Twitter sword that was inscribed with the words “Dazi Vostri,” or “your duties.”
  • The Viareggio Carnevale dates back to 1873, and frequently includes political statements.
  • Trump has been a frequent subject in the parade since his election. See more below.
