Didn’t say it did. I rated it low on accuracy because they said the artist wanted to donate it (no evidence he did, even in interview above), and implied that a used toilet was “art” appropriate for the white house, which it is not.

They also said that the painting wanted didn’t travel, and that it’s on the way to Spain… clearly not both true.
