We have now entered what is either the most glorious or most tragic age of political performance art. And I honestly can't decide.

Russian soldiers guard the remnants of Trump’s Hollywood Walk of Fame Star, which was destroyed earlier this week. +1 for political street theater.

New York Post, the two men were first seen standing on the walk on Wednesday hours after a man named Austin Clay vandalized the star and later turned himself in. Clay now faces felony vandalism charges. Clay is one of many who've messed with Trump's star. James Otis — the guy who posted bail for Clay — took a sledgehammer and a pickaxe to Trump's star days before the 2016 election. Otis and Clay have since met, according to TMZ, who first reported news of the bail payment. Last week's star demolition also drew anti-Trump protestors to the walk, which led to an all-out fight on Wednesday night between protestors and Trump supporters, according to the
Post. Little is known about the two men standing guard over the star, but they'd hardly be the first to draw a connection between U.S. politics and Russia using performance art. And we doubt they'll be the last.  WATCH: Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No. It's an inflatable Trump baby flying around London
