Christo says that while he enjoys a good parody, he doesn’t like people “mocking a man who has demonstrated his great love and appreciation for the arts.”

Christo’s dog Ollie was accidentally covered with corn silk as the artist was harvesting strands from several hundred ears of corn in the kitchen of his home in Italy. Ollie bears no resemblance to Donald Trump in real life.
