AWESOME: Street Artists Plaster Trump Stars on Hollywood Walk of Fame
Well color me not surprised. In reaction to both vandalism and the vote to remove it entirely, street artists plastered the Hollywood Walk of Fame with Trump's star:

From the Hollywood Reporter:
Donald Trump's star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame — destroyed on several occasions by detractors who sometimes wield a pick-ax — mysteriously multiplied over night so that on Thursday morning there were several dozen stars.
Action meet reaction. No, no, I'm not condoning vandalism. But, though I'm personally opposed to sticking things on streets to "own the libs," I still find this amusing. You're not a bad person for getting a chuckle out of it.
The anonymous artist says he's not done with his mission to preserve Trump's star. "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," the artist tells The Hollywood Reporter.
But Trump, his star's gotta go.
The crew laminated the vinyl stars and placed them on blank squares on the Walk of Fame, though kept them covered until all were secured into place so that onlookers would not know exactly what was happening.
"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," the artist said. "If no one peels these off, they could last there for 10 years."
Police have already begun the star removal process. But I'd like to think plenty of deranged psychos lost their enchiladas after seeing so many triggering stars, all with Trump's extra triggering name.
If anyone has footage of such meltdowns, send it. Sharing is caring.
