Several small statues depicting President Donald Trump have appeared across Brooklyn. They have a sign reading ‘pee on me’.
The statues were placed by advertising professional Phil Gable, and they carry a plug for his branded content studio around Park Slope.
“It was largely just a personal expression of my own disdain for Donald Trump, both as a President and a human being,” – Gable says.
The statues depict a youthful-looking Trump from the 1980s or 90s, and they are mounted on patches of grass.
Gable says that he went for younger-looking Trump because he thinks that probably how he sees himself, especially when he is paying Russian escorts for their services (referring to the allegations from the Democrat-financed Christopher Steele dossier).
According to Gable, the statues are sprayed with a dog potty-training aid to encourage dogs to relieve themselves on the statues.
He hopes that dogs would learn to urinate on the statues rather than on flowerbeds in Brooklyn.
Gable calls it a ‘new, funny way to express the disgust that so many of us feel’. The reaction he’d gotten from neighbors in upscale Park Slope has been positive, he adds.
He has placed additional statues around the neighborhood over the weekend, and he has anchored them with cables so they can’t be stolen.
