A group of brave street artists took a major shot at President Donald Trump this week in honor of International Women’s Day.
Trump has a long history of offensive remarks and dangerous attitudes about women. He has repeatedly made jokes about sexual assault and numerous people have come forward with sexual abuse allegations against him.
Seeing as Trump won the election last November, it’s obvious that some Americans need a reminder about how awful his attitudes toward women are. Passersby in a New York City neighborhood got exactly that on Wednesday – a bold street art installation that puts Trump’s history of sexual misconduct on full display.
If you look closely, you’ll see that the posters include a photo of Trump’s face, along with a now-famous direct quotes from our disgusting commander-in-chief.
“I did try and f*** her. She was married.
I moved on her like a b****,
But I couldn’t get there.
And she was married.
You know I’m automatically attracted to beautiful.
I just start kissing them. It’s like a magnet. Just kiss.
I don’t even wait.
You can do anything…
Grab them by the p****.
You can do anything.”
The President of the United States of America
Photos of this thought-provoking public art display appeared on the Vanishing New York blog on Wednesday, along with this brief description:
Last night, someone slathered the East Village with posters of the President of the United States explaining his method of sexual assault.
It’s the old “grab ’em by the pussy” speech.
Just in time for today’s Women’s Strike.
That pretty much says it all – Trump’s deplorable comments speak for themselves.
This is a very important reminder that the entire Trump administration represents an enormous example of hypocrisy – the Republicans claim to be the party of “family values,” but they nominated and elected a man who has a well-documented history of disrespecting women.
Who can forget where they were when the “very religious” Mike Pence said that the then Republican nominee for President, Donald Trump “does his talking, he doesn’t go tiptoeing around all those thousands of rules of political correctness?”
No one could expect a 70-year-old bigoted misogynist to change his ways, but we could expect something resembling morality from the rest of the Republican field. Those were the days.
Today, women across the world are taking to the streets to let their voices be known, and like a magical protest elf, someone has papered New York City’s East Village with posters reminding everyone why so many women, young and old, of all races and religions, are protesting our unpopular president.
