If you're familiar with the work of street art prankster Hansky, you know he's a sucker for a good pun. So when Donald Trump announced his presidential run, and exhibited such poop-like attributes, Hanksy couldn't help but make the connection, depicting Mr. Trump as a giant, wigged dump.
Hanksy didn't stop there. He took his (shit) show on the road, urging voters in New Hampshire and South Carolina to "Dump Trump."
You know the result: Trump won both primaries. Needless to say, Hanksy, like much of the nation, is disturbed.
"I’ve never put much weight behind my work," he wrote in an email to The Huffington Post. "It’s all very topical and light-hearted. I painted that silly Trump mural in NYC late last summer a few weeks after the wigged one announced his presidential run. The mural was a joke and so was Trump. Unfortunately the punchline never came and it’s scary as hell."
Hanksy is hoping that you good Internet people (yes, you!) will help spread his message far and wide: that we should please, seriously, right now, dump Trump. If you head to his website, Dump Across America, you can download buttons, yard signs and banners to help your neighborhood see the light. "Print, post, protest," he urges.
Get (sh)it together and start protesting ASAP, Hanksy begs. If not, there's a very scary chance your next president won't know the difference between poop and a potato.
Editor's note: Donald Trump is a serial liar, rampant xenophobe, racist, misogynist,
