Last modified November 9, 2017 at 10:06 am

To mark one year since Donald Trump’s election to president, someone (we’re told three women, actually) decided to affix his orange mug directly onto the bull’s ass. The Wall Street bull, that is. It’s a framed photo which reads, “1 year of B.S.” and #Resist. Certainly does give a whole new meaning to bull-shit.

Dick-Faced Trump Paster Appears at Hanksy’s ‘Dump Trump’ Wall on Orchard Street

Posted March 24, 2017 at 5:07 am

It was a beacon of anti-Trumpism for more than a year. Until this past January when Hanksy’s Dump Trump Mural was whitewashed.
