In all the excitement/dread over Donald Trump's inauguration as president, somehow we missed the unveiling of Madame Tussauds' official wax figure of the man. For years, this museum and tourist trap staple has created perfect replicas of each new president, painstakingly rendered in wax. For their Trump statue, Madame Tussauds' sculptors outdid themselves, spending twice as long as normal. But it was worth it. Their creation is both eerily realistic and totally horrifying.

Like the man himself, you don't want to believe it's real, but you have no choice. And Madame Tussauds couldn't be prouder of their accomplishment.

Seeing it being sculpted is even more disturbing.

And of course, everyone has jokes about this thing.

I think I've finally figured out what makes Wax Trump so accurate and so unsettling at the same time. It's that the real Donald Trump already looks like he's made of wax.

Not wax.
