Already name-checked by the Donald himself, street artist Hanksy is continuing the anti-Trump momentum. He’s bringing the wildly popular “dump trump” mural-mantra back home after road trips to New Hampshire and South Carolina during the respective Republican primaries.

Indeed. As part of the so-called “Dump Across America” initiative, Hanksy just dropped word of a hometown Dump Trump rally. The somewhat impromptu gathering will transpire on March 12 (Saturday) at noon. Location still TBD.

Here’s more about the event-slash-media spectacle

Donald Trump is many things, but none are presidential. He has shown time and time again that his misguided and shaky beliefs are unstable, misogynistic, and racist. Let us gather together as New Yorkers and show the rest of the country that even residents of Donnie’s home city desperately want to dump the Trump.

While the ultimate goal is to take down the highly over-combed Donald, this is a postive event. Participants are encouraged to give out numerous high-fives and hugs to those of different genders/race/religions. Leave the hate at home and let’s dwindle Trump/Drumpf’s momentum with kindness.

Much like before, Hanksy is urging folks to join the “bowel movement” by printing out the Trump-topped feces imagery to spread the word.
