Donald Trump wanted a wall, and on July 19, he got one. Sure, it was 6-inches tall, but that still counts, right? The structure was built at a very special location for Donald — surrounding the perimeter of his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Check out the video of its construction here!
The mini wall — sitting on a very different border than the 70-year-old would have selected — featured razor wire, tiny American flags sitting atop the ledges, and itty bitty “Keep Out” signs. How… cute? It was erected by Los Angeles-based street artist, Plastic Jesus, who is known for his guerilla-style street art.
Donald Trump’s star sits on prime real estate, situated in front of Forever 21 on Hollywood Boulevard, not too far from Hollywood and Highland Center, and neighboring Kevin Spacey‘s. Just the right place to garner a ton of foot traffic — which it did, when Plastic Jesus dropped the pre-constructed square on Donald’s star and stepped back to let his work do its thing. Visitors to the Walk noticed the hilarious installation and snapped up pics before it was removed.
That day was a big one for Donald, as he was finally, officially named the Republican presidential nominee at the GOP convention in Cleveland. So, getting the nomination and getting his wall — we wonder which made him happier?
The British street artist is avidly anti-Donald, having posted “No Trump Anytime” signs outside Chicago’s Trump Tower, and other cities in the U.S. and London. He has gone after other celebrities too, including famous families like the Kardashians. And we have to admit, his “No Kardashian Parking Anytime” sign does sound pretty funny. His artwork is usually left in place for short periods before being removed. Which is probably how Donald likes it.
HollywoodLifers, what do you think of Donald’s little wall?
