MAGNIFICENT MILE — A five-foot-tall golden elephant on Michigan Avenue has a lot to say about Donald Trump.
The sculpture titled "Elephant In The Room" is actually outside near the Old Water Tower at Michigan and Pearson Street. The piece is the work of the Birch Reincliff Art Collective, which previously planted gold toilets around the city.
The collective's new sculpture comes with Sharpies allowing passersby to share their thoughts on a potential Trump presidency.
"Trump supporters are full of hot air about his leadership bringing about change, but they don't talk about what the change will be. It's the elephant in the room," the collective said in a statement. "The piece allows passersby to write their views and bring what (Trump) stands for into the light."
Here's what people had to say Tuesday morning:

One of those passing by was Luciana Diaz, 29, a student who likens Trump to Hugo Chávez, the controversial former president of her native Venezuela.
"I love this city, I want to finish school here," Diaz said. "How am I supposed to support someone who speaks bad of the Latin people."
A look at the elephant's rear reveals dozen of "Donnie The Poo" dog toys Birch Reincliff is selling to benefit groups disparaged by Trump on the campaign trail.
It's likely the city will take down the sculpture soon — if not already. Here are our photos in case you missed it:
