Trump supporters aren’t taking unhinged lunatic behavior lying down.
Following an incident in which a crazed member of the ‘resistance’ took a pickaxe to President Trump’s Hollywood Walk of Fame Star, somebody has responded, and then some.
An unidentified artist used a section of blank squares in Hollywood and laminated dozens of replica stickers of Trump’s star over a wide segment.
A cleaning service that deals with graffiti on the Walk said they found “about 50 stars.”
“Rip up the president’s Walk of Fame star or try to have it removed — like you’re the mayor of West Hollywood or something — and 30 more will pop up,” he warned protesters in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter.

The artist was referring to the West Hollywood City Council’s recent unanimous vote to have Trump’s star removed because “his behavior toward women, particularly in the #timesup and #metoo movements, should not be acceptable in the Hollywood and entertainment industry communities.”
And they actually said that with full knowledge that stars for Bill Cosby, Kevin Spacey, and other’s accused in the #MeToo era, remain.
The group associated with the replacement Trump stars appears to be associated with Sabo, another conservative street artist.
“The Faction” labels him/herself as “anti-PC street art” and tout the fact that “Sabo & I trigger Libs.”
Sabo has previously mocked late night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel, a man who used his family as a prop to advocate against the repeal of Obamacare, as a ‘crybaby’ in a series of street art posters.
He’s also mocked California Rep. Maxine Waters over her perpetual push for Trump’s impeachment with impeachment posters of her own.

The Hollywood star artist said he covered the stickers until they were all in place because he was concerned about possible liberal interaction in the area.
“I didn’t want to get hit over the head from behind. We thought Trump Derangement Syndrome was a joke, but I’m pretty sure it’s real,” he said.
Pretty sure? No, definitely.

The artist claimed the stickers, which cost north of $1,000, could remain there for years if they were left untouched.
That theory wasn’t about to be tested anytime soon, as an employee with Ripley’s Believe It or Not! said they feared further vandalism and damage to their property from anti-Trumpers and had the stickers removed.
“We didn’t want to have what happened to the old star here,” the employee said. “Not only would the star be destroyed, but it would damage our property.”
Can you blame them?
