A tongue-in-cheek description beneath Trump’s image says that “no hero played a bigger part in the Freedomsurrection” than the 45th president. “While his efforts were not enough to keep him in the White House, his bravery on January 6 will never be forgotten, unless Republicans retake Congress and disband the committees investigating it.”

Another plaque displaying Cruz’s face says that he “rallied the troops [of Jan. 6] with all his natural charisma and oozing likeability.”

The monument, located in Manhattan’s Flatiron District, is poised to be on display for a single day.

It’s not the first time that “The Daily Show” has targeted Trump with a brick-and-mortar exhibit. In 2019, the faux news show toured the “Donald J. Trump Presidential Twitter Library” — mocking the then-president’s Twitter account — around the country.
