Street Artist Trolls Liberals After Vandal Destroys Trump's Hollywood Star

Share

The more his opponents become outraged, the more Donald Trump seems to win.

That’s one way to look at his rising poll numbers, which have climbed even as liberals do everything they can to undermine the president and the mainstream media constantly runs negative stories.

Call him “Teflon Don.” None of the left’s best efforts to tarnish Trump seem to stick, and he appears to come back stronger after every attempt or criticism.

Now, the same thing is happening within the culture. Even after several protesters vandalized Trump’s famous Hollywood star, it just won’t go away … and now there are dozens of stars instead of one.

A rogue street artist just turned the attacks on Trump’s walk of fame star into a powerful message of resiliency. In a move that is sure to send liberals into a tizzy, a mysterious prankster is duplicating the star and putting it almost everywhere.

“The Twitter account TheFaction1776 posted videos of men dressed as construction workers placing dozens of laminated replica Donald Trump stars along the Hollywood Walk of Fame,” reported The Daily Caller.

“The sophisticated operation involved the stars, which look identical to the real stars, being placed in various arrangements around the stars of various left-wing activists, such as Rob Reiner,” Caller continued.

Do you think conservatives are gaining ground in the so-called "culture war?"

That username — TheFaction1776 — most likely belongs to the street artist known as Sabo, or one of his partners.

“Anti-PC street art,” declared the user’s profile. “Vandals bringing uncomfortable truth. Sabo & I trigger Libs. 100% anti-identity politics.”

“Take down his star, and we will descend upon you with 30 fresh new stars,” the caption of the mischievous video boasted. “We are MAGA Legion.”

Sabo has previously mocked the left with a variety of pranks and street art. During the Golden Globes, for instance, he jabbed at Hollywood sex scandals and accused abusers like Harvey Weinstein.

“Photos posted on social media show the art, which consists of several pieces including a mock poster featuring this year’s Globes host, late-night host Seth Meyers, as well as a fake ‘Stop’ sign that urges a stop to ‘Pedophiles,’ ‘Perverts,’ and ‘Rapists,’” reported Breitbart News.

Before that, the artist also teased Jimmy Kimmel, Caitlyn Jenner and Hillary Clinton.

While some leftists have gone out of their way to vandalize Donald Trump’s star, others have petitioned to have it removed completely. The West Hollywood City Council voted to remove the star on political grounds, but that group doesn’t actually have the power necessary to ban the iconic tribute.

“That (power) belongs to the Los Angeles tourist board and experts say they are unlikely to do anything to remove the star,” explained The Daily Caller.

In a way, the gesture of one star becoming even more prominent after opponents attack it is a perfect allegory for Trump’s presidency. Liberals dismissed him, yet he still won. Now they are trying to tear him down, but he keeps moving forward. No wonder the left is tearing its hair out.
