You say potato, I say poop.

Last week, street artist Hanksy hit the road to join the circus in South Carolina. Also known as the Republican primary. Purpose of this so-called “Dump Across America” trip was to sway public opinion against celebrity presidential candidate, Donald Trump.

Hanksy and a gaggle of “bowel movement” loyalists – nicknamed the Doo Doo Boys by a drunk Trump supporter – were able to infiltrate one of the Donald’s rallies in Myrtle Beach last weekend. Their eye-grabbing antics with poster versions of the Orchard Street mural actually angered the man during his speech, and they were 86’d. Except, in his retort to the protesters escorted from the premises, Trump thought the pile of feces his head capped was actually a potato.

“You have a couple of guys that are gonna get a little publicity for themselves because they hold up a picture of a potato,” the candidate noted.

“I’ve never put much weight behind my work,” Hanksy said in a statement. “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.”

All Hanksy’s Trump artwork is available as a free download, and enlists people to “print, post, protest.”
